Even aside from the fact that that's so creepy and torture-y that even Batman would probably say, "Dude, that's pretty fucked up right there," how are we to believe that they're pulling this off?
Who is feeding those people? Who is emptying the shit-buckets? (Because I'm pretty sure the conveniently prison-like cells inside their magic "particle accelerator" don't have toilets.)
One of their prisoners turns into poison gas. What does the... uh... precipitate... of that even look like?
God I hate this show.
