I like this show. Both episodes were good IMO.
I think that people over-think simple entertainment. So what if the show wants to be a slice of reality, mixed with over the top characters. What else is it supposed to be?
If you go into these types of things with mind set of GREATNESS or BUST, then you'll always be dissapointed.
Off topic: This is in response to the Marvel>DC bullsh*t of earlier convos.
Marvel is so over-rated. The studio has made 2 really good movies, a handful of decent ones, and some complete duds.
This is overshadowed by the unwaivering support of it's fans. Marvel fans will go see a mediocre movie multiple times. I know many of them who went to the movies 3-4 times to support the likes of Ironman 3 and Thor:TDW. Padding it's box office numbers, and creating a false perception.
Ironman (Really Good)
Captain America:TWS (Really Good)
Captain America:TFA (Decent)
Avengers (Great first watch, Decent after the hype leaves)
Gaurdians of the Galaxy (Same as above)
Ironman 2 & 3 (duds)
Incredible Hulk (dud)
All that said I still like Marvel Studios. I just refuse to give DC a hard time about it struggles, and let Marvel have a pass for their mediocre efforts. I'll leave that to the deep throating fangirls.
