I want to know where exactly it is happening where "better men" are getting passed over for "worse women".
Just because you complain about a thing, doesn't mean that thing exists.
Here's the issue:
All male cast: okay
All female cast: forced diversity!
I haven't seen the show. But my questions based on my googling:
1. Sorry but I won't explain something so obvious anymore. It's simply too obvious.
2. Like I said, how heavy are proton packs? How much recoil is there in shooting energy weapons? Did you watch the original? They struggled to fire that stuff. Because it was heavy.
So why change the parameters of the franchise? The proton packs should behave the same way yes? If not, why not just make a whole different franchise? Well obviously, if we retain the original Ghostbusters lore, we can't have females lugging around all that heavy equipment. But nooooo nevermind the lore, nevermind the concept, just all female! Don't matter whether we stick to the story!
3. Don't watch it. The series absolutely sucks.
What, you didn't study Greek mythology in middle school? If you have any idea about Achilles whatsoever, you know that this rendition was absolutely trash. Again, why fool around with the lore? Why fool around with the characters parameters?
