Welcome To Our Village Please Invade Carefully S02 E03 - Questioning Loyalties

This one might make you have a little doubt next time you ask or get asked to get a loyalty card stamped.

In this case the loyalty card in question is to the alien invaders, with a stamp on the card for collaborating obtained by ratting on the resistance who have kidnapped one of the minions and are holding it in a shed on the park.

That's going to make a few people think twice when they ask for a stamp after ordering their , Skinny-Decaf-Grande-Frappachino.

To be fair though, it's not as if regularly ordering a coffee from a specific organization is pledging your allegiance to an evil globe-spanning institution hell-bent on controlling us all...

In this case the collaborator in question had built up enough stamps to be able to ask for whatever they want from Field Commander Uljabaan. And the choice is to undertake one of the most insidious plots that could ever occur....

CHEAT IN THE PUB QUIZ...

The quiz has become a real prize, as with communications to the outside world cut off, the usual internet cheating that is the bane of many is now impossible. 

The computer wipes the floor with the usual winners, and as a result, the village goes collaboration crazy, which is a big problem for the Lyons and Lucy who are now the only source of information worthy of handing over to the aliens, since everyone now wants to get their hands on the computer to win the quiz.

With the villagers now hanging on every word, Lucy becomes the chief suspect in a mysterious plot regarding a contentious tree. She is arrested and interrogated and threatened to make her reveal the truth about why she is so keen to save it from being cut down.

Actually , I must admit that this was the best episode of this season so far. The jokes and central themes are stronger in this episode. The petty nature of the villagers is brought to the fore all over the place and makes a nice change from invasion schemes.

Uljabaan (although as easily manipulated as usual) takes on a slightly meaner edge with his treatment of Lucy, and the ultimate solution to the computer situation is completely in keeping with the tone of the series and characters motivations.

So much  better this week. Keep it up and stay Loyal ....

Or it's the MIND PROBE for you...
