Actresses I Find Overrated

Since I went through all the actors I'm not a fan of, I thought I'd be gender-neutral and take a turn at the actresses that leave me cold. Admittedly, I'm much more picky about leading ladies than I am with leading men, because it really takes a special blend of acting talent and charm to win me over but not alienate me, as well as to be pretty but not obnoxiously so (nor overly frumpy - no thanks to many haircuts). Also, who else agrees that 99% of dramas fail due to an annoying heroine? I'll do a separate post on the actresses I love, but this one's all about the ones I view as chronically overrated.

Master's Sun: Episode 12's Many Failures

I'd been slowly enjoying this show after my complaints post-episode 5, but it shouldn't be a surprise that the writing has again cycled down into utter crap. What makes it worse is that the quality directing seems to be falling down with it. I wanted to believe there was a perfect PD out there, but the last two episodes have revealed the multitude of weaknesses present. Episodes 9-10 were perfection, just as episode 12 was absolute crap.
