Bloggable science once again takes a back seat to plot and entertainment as Earth-2 Agents are uncovered attempting to infiltrate Earth 1’s government.

This episode is debunked at Polite Dissent, and you can read more about it at Fox, IMDb and the A.V. Club.

The Agents’ backup brains reminded me of the manga character Desty Nova, who has a backup brain chip (and face) in his stomach.
