I’m A Virgo – Season 1 Episode 6 Recap & Review

It Requires Trust On My Part

In episode 6 of I’m A Virgo, the viewpoint changes to that of The Hero. A strange AI that resembles Bill Cosby plays The Hero’s music when he wakes up, faces the assassin who is hiding in his apartment and kills him while still half-naked.

The Hero goes to his elegant apartment’s comic book section and requests his artists to elaborate on the history of the gigantic supervillain. When challenged, he responds that all artwork is propaganda while arguing that in the present instance, the propaganda aims to fervently uphold laws.

Then Edwin, Jay Whittle’s personal assistant, is revealed. Edwin tests The Hero’s potential love interests before setting up a final date with Jay Whittle. Additionally, we learn that Edwin is a huge supporter and believer of The Hero. The date is unsuccessful, though, and Edwin receives some harsh treatment from the boss as a consequence.

We learn what motivates The Hero to keep going is the conviction that what he is pursuing is essentially correct. His mom, an already affluent woman, does not comprehend this obsession with adhering to the law as she thinks it’s unnecessary.

In the meantime, Cootie informs Jones of his desire to play the bad guy. Although Jones thinks it is a silly theory, she respects it. Following that, Cootie speaks with Flora, who emphasizes the importance of connection as the cornerstone of their relationship when he refuses to open up to her.

Cootie, Flora, Felix, the Lower Bottoms, and Lafrancine get together and decide to go after the power plant as revenge for causing the blackout. They plan to make them turn it back on in a harsh way. Thereafter, Lafrancine hands her kid and the others the weapons.

The Episode Review

Episode 6 of I’m A Virgo presents the antagonist’s half-baked viewpoint, which they naturally make unreasonable. Even the antagonist’s mother is criticizing her son’s position. If you stop to think about it, rules aren’t always bad because they bring order to a world that would otherwise be chaotic.

The penultimate episode falls short of presenting both sides of the argument fairly and letting the viewers decide which is stronger. Instead, it makes an effort to discredit the opposing viewpoint and position.

You can compare this show to George Orwell’s Animal Farm to see how awful it is. Animal Farm, in contrast to this series, is a critique of communism. You’ll see, though, that the novel fairly presents both points of view. On the other hand, I’m A Virgo consistently presents inadequate arguments and keeps portraying the opposing viewpoint as being extremely weak, which is a poor way to think and create a show.
