Zodiac War #04 — International Relations Made Easy

October 24th, 2017


Probably the most interesting thing this week was the bird zombies.


Not to continue to repeat myself, but another frustrating episode where you can kind of see what they were going for, but it flubs a bunch of basic things. The not-Israel/not-Palestine thing that makes up the core of her backstory was a laughable at best understanding of any kind of war. Ratboy's idiotic ramblings about how you shouldn't do help suffering people because you might accidentally also help bad people was treated as some kind of complex, horrible ethical dilemma (although don't tell Republicans that), and the main plot went precisely nowhere until the last minute or so of the episode. I guess nobody unceremoniously died this week, so it did something new. 

I really thought after last week… hell, the first episode and last week, that her power was going to be some flavor of weakening others, and they do directly explain how Roosterface fell apart because of her influence. I just expected her to actually be aware of it and weaponizing it instead of having Random Power That We Won't Actually Be Using This Week. I especially thought that after they showed Boar being a primary cause for her grand peace plan falling apart. That would've been a far more interesting tack to take with her rather than steadfast optimism. You'd also have thought they'd do a bit more with the Three Wise Monkeys thing at the start, but nope. Nada. If there's any character that could've stood to be at least a little sinistered up to add some depth, it's her. I have no problems with a good guy among the cast, but she's as boring as they come, and I'm not really looking forward to more of her.

4 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • The Phantom says:

    I think the guess game of “Who is going to die next?” is the best part of this show.

  • The Phantom says:

    How can you be missing then best show of the season King’s Game.

  • ark noir says:

    the state of this ‘Kung fu’ Henry kissinger with the big knockers’ trying to stop war in the same way governments covertly start war is hilarious.

    after watching the beginning of this episode I’m sure this is a re-telling of journey to the west.

    two reasons……monkeys and magic

    i mean the whole series
