So yeah, SPOILER ALERT, the twist at the end is that the sister has gone insane. Sure, that's less of a twist and more just a thing that happens, but also the brother stretches his penis all the way around her and then lubricates his underarm with oil, so SPOILER TWIST ALERT, the brother's a robot. End of episode, fade to black, no end title cards. My goosebumps had boners, it was nuts.
STAR RATING: Yes!
Fishbowl is a fish-eye lens POV drama about a fish that has two white slaves. One comes from a rich family, the other from a poor one, but none of it matters in the long run because they're still both slaves to the fish. Even though we only see the fish's point of view, and the fish's bowl is stationary for the entire episode, it's a surprisingly engaging show. The slaves get through the days by peppering conversations with sarcasm and by peppering the fish's sandwiches with more pepper than one might expect. The joke's on the slaves, though, because at the end of the pilot the girls realize that they've been making sandwiches for something that doesn't eat sandwiches. The slaves decide to run away, but the fish overhears them and laughs as if this was its plan all along. End of episode, black screen, orchestral hit, and a simple title card that says "Fishbowl" in a font I've never seen. Really solid, compelling television. Every once in a while Fishbowl sort of feels like an hilarious POV fish/slave comedy, but at its core it's an dramatic tale of survival and mysteries and fish puns. I won't ruin any of the puns for you, but they're terrible. The mysteries are pretty funny.
