Quote:Trish is annoying at times and a bit bratty from her Patsy days. IT also doesn't help that her mother wants to keep cashing in on the Patsy legacy and practically selling her daughter to the next hollywood gig.
Quote:Clearly her heart isn't in that anymore, and she has a lot of bad memories from the Patsy days which I frankly wouldn't blame her for.
Quote:But about 3 episodes into the season 2 was all it took to become convinced that she wants powers. Remember in Season 1 she did take one of Simpsons red pills and was briefly boosted by it. Now she gets her hands on the inhaler which was a milder version of it. Since she can't convince Jessica to stop being so bitter and hero up more, now she wants to be the hero.
Trish was really unbearable this year. But maybe that was for the best. It seems to me they toned Jessica's nastiness down a tad and the other women on the show were just so much worse (Trish, Dorothy, Alissa...I couldn't stand those 3)
For a show that supposedly was all about women...it sure made most of the women characters down right unlikable. But even for a villain I thought Karl Malus was someone I could totally get stoned with...he just seemed really friendly.
Quote:She's got the motivation and the combat training but she doesn't have super powers without the inhaler.....until we see that scene at the end of the last episode that shows she did get something from Malus' experiment.
Quote:As to Hogarth, again the gay thing isn't the problem in and of itself. It just felt at times like too much "gay pride" was being shoved into the series. I'm all for equal rights, but do we need to see her going off the rails into a gay orgy? Do we really need to see her having a tryst with the homeless girl (love how she set her up for murder). Then in the final episode she is starting to enjoy the company of her yoga instructor. The gay bar scene was brief and was an organic part of the story to set up the fact that the law partner had a secret to be used against him, that is no big deal. But Hogarth was practically all over any woman she met. Tone it down a few notches is all I'm saying. She's a gay and empowered woman. We get, we got it, loud and clear.
To me they did try to make Jeri seem like the male lead on a slutty after hours Showtime show always banging a new chick every episode. Who knew lesbians were so voracious?
