Teddy, a teenage heart-throb and reality TV star, is used to being followed by cameras and waking up in strange beds with strange girls. But robot cameras with no operators, beds made of plastic, and girls that have no desire to be in bed with him? That he very unused to. Suddenly trapped in a weird alt-version of his own life – with a rare definitively non-fangirl – the teen star seeks questions, and a way out.
This episode introduces new characters, Teddy and Inez but focuses mainly on Teddy.
Teddy is the protagonist of a reality-show that makes him feel like his life is based on lies. The reader doesn’t get to know much about Inez, we only know that she lives in California and that she’s a lesbian. I’ll be waiting patiently for an episode about her.
I don’t really know if they’re a good addition to the series but we’ll see.
I don’t care about Teddy because I’m not into reality-shows. I was expecting an action packed episode, after the ending of the last one, so it disappointed me.
Still, I’m interested to see how this characters will adapt to their new reality and I look forward to reading the next episode.
