Day 10 - A Creative team that disappointed you
Giffin and DeMatteis on Booster Gold. I didn't put all my reviews for their run on this site but they seriously pissed me off for most of it. Yes I will admit I liked a couple of issues and there were some good moments. But for me the bad outweighed the good. Their characterizations for most of the women were downright insulting to the point I'm shocked no one else called them on it. One issue going as far as making an ongoing prison rape joke at Boosters' expense (would anyone laugh if it happened?) The cast had a LOT of out of character moments. It pandered too much to their past and once again retended the same tired "Booster is in denial over his death/mourns Ted" scene that were so overblown it was embarrassing. Usually I'm not that hard on creative teams. Even art I can't stand I can't find it in myself to put down. But that's how this run makes me feel. The only thing I disliked more was ICBINTJL and FKATJL. Before that I liked this team.
