Moonbeam City: Lasers and Liars
November 10, 2015 7:41 AM - Season 1, Episode 6 - Subscribe

The team gears up for the Laser Ball, except Dazzle is benched due to his latest fiasco, and Rad is going as a guest because he's one of the Moonbeam City elite, so it's up to Chrysalis to run security at the ball. Dazzle crashes the party and gets tangled in Pizzaz's hyper-wealthy (and despicable) family feud, while Rad's lies become increasingly ridiculous while trying to show off for his fellow rich men.

Yes, that's Kevin McDonald as Accoutrement Miller, and Paget Brewster is both Charisma and Sophistica Miller, with Kate McKinnon as Panache Miller.

I love how the show keeps doubling down on the ridiculousness. This time it's pumping lasers from the ground, and Rad might have even tripled down on that. Pizzaz got a pretty good episode, particularly after the shitshow that was the previous week's ending.

Also, Paget Brewster is a national treasure.

I tried and failed to watch the pilot, finding it just unfunny. (Which is surprising, because I've made an FPP of one of Scott Gairdner's videos.) Does it hit a groove?

It hits a few high points based on the ever-increasing ridiculousness of the situations (bowling alley animations are considered high art, the fire department looks like they're permanently posing to a calendar, mining precious lasers), and the animation has been improving.

I like it, but I enjoy ridiculous things. I liked the ideas from the pilot, and I think there are some good riffs. I like this miserable Wille Forte here a lot more than Last Man on Earth, and this episode wasn't an exception.
