Co Contempt
19 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is about more than the dark side of the fantasy fairs. The cult Doriens friends have made of an Ann Rice like fixation is a buffer between them and the nip and tuck of the real world. No one is welcome unless they have been passed around and made submissive to the group. This first poor schnook with his robot used his toys as substitute for intimacy and his loneliness killed him. The Vampire club with such quaint greetings as "You have so much to learn" is in effect telling everyone who approaches that you have to learn their world. They may hold jobs and do business as much as they have to but you are the mortal the dead one, they are the real people. As Bobby points out at the end they know the truth of the real world. They just do not like it and live by their own isolated law. Fanasy is the drug they cannot use an compartmentalize. It governs them not the other way around and the reward is self destruction, stupid vigilantism and the knowledge of their own alienation.
