Was it Alley MacBeal that introduced the ridiculous young female lawyer?
I guess each generation needs to have their own annoying mole.
So I've been watching this TV show on Netflix. Let's face it, Netflix is cringe. Not being a particularly TV kind of person, I decided to take up the free trial.
An algorithm recommendation (who do they think am?) was the program, "Partner Track". Let me tell you about this Woke festering turd.
I feel mopey and teary just thinking about it ... anyway, let me recount the basic premise.
A young Korean-American lawyer, 2nd best student law student graduate from Harvard, is working in a top notch law firm. She wants to become a Parter in the law firm.
It's one of those TV programs that start with a narration, "That's me. Walking on the street with a coffee, late to a meeting"....
Yep, you can see where this sloth is going...
She is brilliant, late 20s, living in an unbelievably unrealistic apartment, and struggling to get the best cases in her company.
Of course, there's a London based lawyer, just transferred to her office, who she had a fling with at someone's wedding in the UK. As improbable as that is, there's an even worse new New York dreamboat who is a philanthropist who cooks her every meal, and deals with her every mood in a super hero fashion. "Oh honey, you look upset, take a bath, and I'll cook you a 6 course meal. Your bath already has bubbles. I also bought you a new dress, it's laid nicely out on the bed". Unicorn!
Her friends are an upstart Jewish female colleague obsessed with her sex life, a black gay lawyer who loves fashion, is effeminate, and wants to be on the big fashion account. What a surprise? He has an old white boss who gives him a hard time.
Then there are the 'white' guys who are all, shock horror, complete assholes. No cliche there.
So, quick recap, hot Asian woman deals with obstacles: sexist men and those she wants to sleep with.
The dialogue is so schlocky:
"Oh where did you go to school?"
