On tumblr, I posted an untagged one-line post  "I don't think Girlboss is for me." I feel I should elaborate.

Let's get this out of the way. I watched the first two episodes out of loyalty to Dylan O'Brien. Yes, really. So if the show gets really good after episode 2, feel free not to tell me.

Okay, so here were my expectations: it would give me a smile, maybe a chuckle or two. 

It didn't. Instead, I was supposed to root for a white rich man's daughter who steals material from small businesses. Because she's 27 and doesn't know what to do with her life, except not grow up. I discovered I have one storytelling thing I hate. Characters that refuse adulthood because it's "not fun". 

Now, I'd accept that if it were a comment on how Hollywood, and society at large, fail to provide women with adequate models for their life after age 35. But it wasn't that. This character is just came across as entitled and spoiled. And rude. 

None of it was fun. So I quit.
