War Is for Suckers (Impersonating “The Zygon Invasion” and “The Zygon Inversion”)

War Is for Suckers (Impersonating “The Zygon Invasion” and “The Zygon Inversion”)

As alien baddies go, the Zygons are one of the more nuanced races that have tried to take over the Earth. Turns out they want to just live in peace and chill, man — just like the rest of us. That’s some nice background for The Zygon Invasion/Inversion, a story that focuses on the extremists among us who are determined to stir up animosity to further their own idealized vision of how society should be. Kinda sounds relevant, but it’s going to take a speech for the ages, delivered by a leading actor in top form, to really get us to fully absorb it. Something tells us it’s gonna be OK.
