this latest episode that I'm calling "the one where they give a lot of screen-time to Artemis" was great.
first. I don't think if they'd have shown me a list of 5 names to play Pat... Luke Wilson would have been my first choice... but damn if his 'luke Wilsonisms' haven't really been working for the character... the way he plays the dialog between Pat and Court this episode is perfect.
from the understated ' I didn't think you thought so little of me ' scene to the ' oh really you don't say ' scene at the end... solid dad dialog
but back to Artemis - I absolutely love how she's been a background character slowly developing in the season, and sure here she serves more as a means to truly introduce the audience to Tigress and Sportsmaster ... but the subtle way she's been shown to be 'intense' and especially so in this episode ...to the point that if you aren't familiar with the character from the comics - or that 1.5 really popular cartoon(s) she was in recently... you'd have no idea she's destined to be a hero.
Until we get that perfectly made scene of her sitting there awkwardly as her parents tell her about going out on a date night... its just hilarious -and also gives a glimpse of her -off field personality
I don't expect her to feature heavily since this isn't Runaways (lol) though similar plot elements for sure...
its also good to see these badguy's kids expressing powers... Icicle jr in this episode... Wildcat's Ex boyfriend in a previous episode... and technically Artemis now... it might be that the writers move away from kids vs adults in season 2 and we just get some highschool kids beating the hell out of each other for a season XD.
great show, keep'em come'n
