Customer Review

on 27 February 2005
Everything else pails into insignificance against this superb show, you just have to see this once, and you will be hooked. Why oh why they haven't put it on terrestrial here in the UK is just plain wrong. Put pressure on C4 if, like me, you agree that this deserves a much much wider UK audience. The animation here is awe inspiring, the sound and music quality utterly fantastic and voice casting is without questiuon the best you'll find.
Invader ZIM is an eccentric insanely egomanic alien soldier from the planet Irk, who has a penchant for being terribly over dramatic, using ridiculously excessive and elaborate language and gestures, and has the most ridiculous dictatorial walk.
He was banished from the Irken Empire after nearly destroying it on an early mission 'Operation Impending Doom 1'. Upon hearing of Operation Impending Doom II, Zim "quits" being banished and races to the Great Assigning where Irken Elite soldiers are chosen to become Invaders.
After begging his superiors for another chance, they decide to trick him into going on a "secret mission" to an "obscure planet" i.e. a random point in space at the edge of the universe which turns out to be Earth, in hopes that he'll die in transit.
Their trick backfires when ZIM safely reaches Earth and begins his 'ever-so-subtle' conquest of it. He disguises himself as a schoolboy, the disguise consisting of some contact lenses and a black wig, leaving his green skin clearly visible. Despite this the only person who apparently sees straight through his disguise is one of his classmates - Dib, a somewhat insane paranormal researcher, who is intent on stopping ZIM's reign of """terror""".
ZIM's sidekick is GIR, a psychotic, stupid little robot slave belonging to Zim. GIR's normal disguise is an unconvincing green dog suit. He is very easily influenced and impossible to fully control. He is incapable of focusing his attention on important things for long periods and mostly speaks with no relevant coherent thought in mind. He is often the reason Zim fails in his pointlessly convoluted plans. GIR is essentially a hedonist, whose main interests in life are sleeping, dancing, watching TV (in particular, the Angry Monkey show) and eating. He is infatuated with Earth's culture and is extreeeeemely cute.
Just bye this, there is nothing else to say :->
