ID: Invaded #03 — Always Twirling, Twirling, Twirling

Towards freedom from making any sense.


I'm going to call this the combo post for both ID and Pet because they both had pretty much the same problems, and I zoned out partway through Pet because it really rubbed me the wrong way by the second episode being almost entirely a retelling of the first episode but from the point of view of the two psychic twinks. It was certainly a bit weirder than ID's outing, but no less focused on tortured-looking pretty boys going on at length about rules about psychic stuff. It's the retreading of the previous episode that really irritates me, especially if the only angle they're going to add to it is exposition about how it happened, with weird fish hallucinations.

This episode continued the problems from last week, which were also pointy-chinned tortured pretty boys explaining things at length with no real connection to reality, figuratively or literally. The tower is spinning, ergo, the culprit is the guy madly cackling with glee as he watches everyone be shot, but wait, we've just used facial recognition software and only one person isn't being randomized. Aha! It was a psychic robot simulacrum after all. I can't find the chain of logic here, and I think it's because it's not a chain so much as a plate of spaghetti. Then he gets tossed in a cell next to our antihero who gives him a speech about how the dude's just a sociopath, which rocks the sociopath to his core and he immediately kills himself. First, why are we jailing people next to witnesses in their capture? Second, the megalomaniac psychopath was driven to suicide by being taunted a little? Seriously? Seriously?
