During the last few episodes of the series, there are three references made between Misty Knight and her boss Inspector Ridley about the real life African-American intercollegiate sororities Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Ridley informs Knight that Mariah Dillard was her "Soror." Knight believed their sorority was Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA), but Ridley corrects her in final episode that she is indeed a Delta. These references are acknowledged by mention of the sororities trademark call-out sounds of "Skee-Wee" (AKAs) by Knight and "Oo-Oop" (Deltas) by Ridley in these episodes. See more »
Behind the desk in Cottonmouth's office is a very fancy type of flat panel TV that actually mechanically extends from the wall and flips the screen so that one side is a TV monitor while the other is a painting or some other form of art. In some scenes throughout the first 6 episodes or so, there is a small black reading lamp that appears only when the "art-side" is facing out, almost as if the set dressers forgot there was a TV on the other side and that the lamp would have been knocked over if anyone ever turned on the TV.

unfunny smack-talk, annoying speechifying, long, drawn-out character development & repetitive fight scenes
The writing-ugh, hackneyed & cheesy and overdone (not even "corny"). The direction & acting, was so painfully over-the-top, way too often. The unfunny smack-talk, annoying speechifying, the long, drawn-out character development scenes & even the repetitive fight scenes were agonizing at times. The actual plot line(s) for S01 could have been completed in 6-8 episodes at most, not 13. It seemed like it was set in Brokenrecordtown. I mean, I get it, "STORIES," but its like an unrelenting hammer for each & every character/moment. Then, there's the flashbacks/reenactments in both intros to episodes & in Misty's speculations/intuitions-so much filler. The music/soundtrack choices are overbearing at times. (Sometimes in the artists' performances, but also in the "dramatic interludes.") It seems like there was a "taking advantage of any inroads" thing going on with the music, which isn't a normal sitch for the Marvel brand. In S02, the characters can turn immature and irrational on a dime's worth of action. It also feels like it's trying to cover too many genres/topics at once, so it loses drive, & has a stunted pace. It's soooo heavy on "wisdom" & religiousity, it starts to feel like it's aimed at teens, but with the level of violence, nudity, sexist stereotyping & adult themes, it just seems downright confused about its audience. Sometimes the arguments & abuse in relationship situations come off as more of an instruction manual than a cautionary tale. Are there a lot of people looking to the world of Marvel for counseling sessions, or will they need them even more afterwards?
