The Episode Review

Episode 5 of I’m A Virgo and the entire series are set up to satirise society in some way. The show makes an effort to serve as a reminder of what it is like to experience feeling out of place and to seek comfort in representation.

The episode, and the entire show, make an effort to describe things using metaphors. It’s challenging to take the show’s argument seriously though, because it’s so flimsy. Additionally, the show’s political stance overshadows its plot, which is a real letdown.
