Episode 2: Dominion Tank Police is officially a grudge-watch

Sometimes I hate a show, or I hate a major aspect of a show, and yet I watch the whole thing out of perverse resentment.

I call this a grudge-watch.

The show is watchable. It’s better than Canadian television, and better than BBC. But the premise of the show is downright evil. The moral of the story is a Family Unfriendly Aesop.

So apparently Major Kusanagi wasn’t the first heroine to make fascist psychopathy into a sexy propaganda statement.

So, the lesson to be learned is that once you have gone to war, you are completely absolved of all sins, and you can do no wrong. Throw all that jus in bello stuff out the window.
