Week 7 Verdict:

You may notice that these screenshot commentaries are getting shorter and less critical, because the show is getting more into its stride with the serious psychological drama, and totally not because SerendipitouslySane is getting lazier by the week. In all seriousness, I’ve surrendered almost all of my reservations that I’ve had for this show in the beginning. The battles this episode I thought were particularly well-choreographed, and in line with the style of the rest of the show. Unfortunately little girls shooting light beams at each other to the beat of pounding techno while looking mildly aroused makes for poor satirical comedy.
