Minx – Pilot (Not like a shvantz right in the face)

The job of a pilot is to establish a show’s premise and characters. This pilot did its job perfectly.

We are introduced to Joyce Prigger (Ophelia Lovibond) by a daydream she has of winning a Pulitzer Prize, giving a speech talking about how Gloria Steinem is her inspiration, only for Joyce (and us) to be brought back to reality when a construction worker is loudly catcalling at her as she makes her way to the South California Magazine Pitch Festival. Joyce goes over to him to tell him that he should introduce himself with a handshake and a name as times have changed, and he does so, only to make another explicit comment towards her.
