Whenever the show is not giving us a fight scene, we’re given some very bad and unnatural dialogue between characters, annoying dynamics and interactions between characters that just devolve to them yelling at each other as a form of comedy, or flashbacks that I’ll admit are fairly well written, especially when ...
