Emphasis on stupidity.
Another episode mostly devoid of any purpose or point. I guess it was supposed to be the first in an arc centering on the two former idols, both angsty because they have their own ideas of what idoling should be and sometimes you have to do something that’s not completely in line with that. We could be using, you know, the zombie aspect to drive that point home, maybe murdering some fan or doing something really unsavory, but no. It’s doing a meet and greet with fans that’s A Bridge Too Far and sends one into a crisis of idolness, which, in turn, sends the other into a crisis of idolness. How are we only halfway into this stupid thing? How are we already halfway in and just ditching the zombie thing?
Also, one died because their plane spontaneously blew up. The other died from performing in the middle of a thunderstorm and being struck by lightning. You’d think either of those would be indeliably etched into the public memory. I’m pretty sure if the Big Bopper showed up today as an up and coming rock star, people would notice. And if you thought that was the direction they were going in with the cops, you’d also be wrong. Both backstories are just spat out at the end, and have jack squat to do with anything else. They were just angsty, and since they’re angsty, here’s another point in their existence where they were also angsty.
