Soooo...much...Penny...

I love Penny, but as I love Aggie just as much, I've always wondered why there's so little of her in this arc.

This is what you call an "establishing a character" arc. We're being shown Penny's clothes horse tendencies. I think Ag gets one of these too.

The comic always did focus on one more than the other and just went back and forth. Besides, Penny has a much larger cast to work with now, not only a family but an established group of friends. Much easier to tell stories when you've got so much to work with. Aggie's only got her dad and a rat.

This part of the series showed a lot more of Penny's less likable side, all in rapid succession. Hm.

You think so? She's shallow, self absorbed and doesn't really understand things but thinks she knows best. That's EVERY teenager.

How much Penny was in the [one] Marshall arc [so far]?

That's not to say that balance isn't good, I like the balance. Just observation on the current PA sine wave.
