There's honestly so much misogyny in this show that I would normally drop it. In fact I've considered doing so even with all it has going for it and the fact that it's such a short season. The only reason I watched this week was that there was the carrot of Ioan on a future ep.
I don't feel like this attitude was in the book so I'm guessing it comes from DEK. I don't know much about him and haven't watched any of his shows (except Ally) from watching this show I feel like I wouldn't like this guy. Frankly, my opinions of everyone involved in the project has gone down a little bit.
