This is definitely one weird show but I am loving it. Funny how they stayed at the Sleep and Cheap motel! No Mr. Nobody narration this week, though.

I love the show.

In episode 3, I miss the cockroach (those are words I never thought I’d say).

I like this show about 365% more than Titans. Please stay good!!! Jane… I love U, girl.

I missed the unique recap. I wish they’d have kept that up.

I get that this is still a “superhero” type show, and I do enjoy the action, but my favorite parts of this show are when the characters are just sitting around, lol. I like when they confront their personal demons or they’re shown just being themselves, and I love their interaction with each other. There’s been a lot of character development that hit me right in the feels this week.

I like that we got more of Larry’s backstory. I still need to figure out what’s up with the Negative Spirit, how it works, what it wants… and I feel like there’s a Rita backstory coming up soon. We got a little taste of her past in last week’s episode. She’s still struggling. Crazy Jane seems more sure of herself, but she’s so interesting I think it’ll take the whole season to get to the bottom of her story.

I also love how there’s a Nazi Disneyland seemingly handing out powers to anyone who can pay for them… I liked the symmetry between the puppet show and how Fuchs was controlling his henchpeople like literal puppets. And Cliff sitting in that consultation room like it was a personal therapy appointment.

Matt Bomer absolutely slayed it this episode. So much feels coming from beneath that burn make-up.

I don’t know what to say about the episode except it was the oddest yet fun episode so far. Can’t wait to see the next one.

Rita was speaking truth to Cyborg about him being afraid. Go Rita!

This episode hooked me at the start, when Jane stapled the flyer to random guy’s forehead. Another wonderfully weird episode that I couldn’t stop watching!

“Nazi Punks Fuck Off” by Dead Kennedys was the perfect choice in music for that fight scene.

And that live-action version of Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man was better than it had any right to be. I hope he comes back if not this season, then next season.

Loved the episode. Is animal mineral vegetable man a thing?? Either way, I love that they are doubling down on the weird.

My jaw dropped at the end reveal of AVM!!! I am sooo excited! And incredibly glad that it wasn’t Steve Dayton😆

yeah, this show continues to impress. It is just extraordinarily impressive what they are able to achieve with Cliff, just how expressive they can make a character without skin or a mobile face. The fight scenes in this are awesome. The insight we got into Jane are awesome. Road trip to Paraguay was awesome. Honestly at first I thought that might have been the floronic man
