An absolute joke of an episode.
16 February 2015 | by matvalSee all my reviews

This episode is the perfect example of what happens when you write something about a subject you have no knowledge of or did no research on. Before we get to the episode, let me clear the facts for you: Gamergate is not about crazy, sociopathic gamers who want women out of video games, it's all about standing up against video game journalism corruption, releasing misinformed reviews about games that aren't as good as they say. This so called Anti-Gamergate , who's composed of feminists, SJWs (social justice warriors) and the same Gaming Journalism sites who've been accused of corruption, are spreading nothing but lies for the most part, mounting a hatred campaign against gamers who just fight for ethics in the video game industry. Most of the threats against women never actually happened and it's actually the Anti-Gamergate side who's sending threats against the pro-Gamergate side. If you think I'm lying go do some research and you'll realize I'm not. Now with this out of the way, let's get to the actual episode:

  • The plot is awful: death threats, swatting, rape, kidnapping just because some women make video games? That's very difficult to dig and it's written in such an over-the-top way it's almost laughable. And the fact that it's based around false facts makes it much worse.


  • The screenplay is sub-par


  • Dialogues range from forgettable to downright cringe-worthy (They leveled up! What's the next level? just to quote some of them or Tutuola using "words" from the gamer slang)


  • The side characters are forgettable and uninteresting. Also, one of them has a name that was clearly inspired by Anita Sarkeesian. Really?


  • They decided to depict the villains as a terrorist cell. It's cheap, uncreative, ridiculous, over-the-top and difficult to believe. The fact that you get violent because you play games too much is more believable than this.


  • The only thing good about this episode is its name and the acting. That's it.


Even without considering the Gamergate controversy, this episode fails completely. I used to be a big fan of this show, but now after 16 seasons I think it's time to end it, and for me to move on.

2/10
