Hard disagree.Silentpony said:Our Mrs Reynolds, from Firefly. I mean it was just obvious from the very first scene with her, at the festival, that Saffron was evil. And then the twist was she's evil, and really hot and...that's it. She's evil and hot, and there's nothing else to her character, and all the dudes just fumble over themselves with how hot she is. And then the women are confounded with how evil she is.
And its the same running joke for the entire episode - she's hot, says something sexual, the dudes blush, she knocks them out, the women roll their eyes.
Of all of Firefly that one felt the most like either an episode of Buffy, or just a regular sitcom episode.
That episode was great! Funny as hell.
It shows two sides of toxic femininity.
1. The "beautiful" woman playing a tease and using sex to get her way.
2. Other woman blaming men for "falling" for it because they're "beasts".
It is nicely subverted when he becomes wise to her plans and out-smarts her.
