In this third episode of the Legion of Extraordinary Dancers, a man with no memory is implanted with a bizarre artifact and is plagued by convulsions which render his movement artificial and robotic.
He is brought back to health and wholeness by a reluctant nurse, who connects with the man in a touching love story.
The use of comic-sans text instead of spoken dialogue heightens the stylized reality of the episode, and I’m glad to see some more female characters in a important role (as featured dancers and not just supporting characters), as I’d worried about that a little with the first couple episodes.
