Everything is horrible forever, now. The show was rife with violence against women, was horribly regressive, held ridiculous gender essentialist views, and generally felt like sticking my hand in a meat grinder. Why did I watch the whole thing, you ask? Well, it was six episodes, and the pilot was good in places, so I kept thinking things would get better.

THEY DID NOT.

If you must watch this show to see what I'm moaning about, stop after the pilot. The violence gets much worse. If you, like me, can't look away, stop after the first three episodes. The violence gets much worse. If you, like me, can't look away, I'll meet you down at the local bar.

The only way I could possibly justify watching this is by recapping episodes, or writing up a comparison with a better show—ie, the Witchblade anime series—to show how respecting women makes for better art. So I ask you, people delighting in my suffering, would you like something like this?
