I wound up with the same overall feelings about the show (mediocre to below average) but for the opposite reasons. I felt like way too much time was spent on CW Teen Drama, driving, long conversations, & it just ground the pace of the show to a halt. Plus there was a lot of "they're about to be caught! no they escaped by... oh, running away again".
The basic premise has been handled a lot better by other shows/movies - River Tam in Firefly/Serenity, X-23 in Logan, Eleven in Stranger Things. They need to pick a lane & either lean into the humanity, adjusting to real life, fish out of water aspect (which it sounds like you'd like more) or else focus on the enhanced, what makes her special, action sequences (which is more of what I'd like). I'm not saying either preference is better or even that it should be 100% either way but trying to strike a 50/50 balance doesn't seem like a good approach, especially when both aspects are handled poorly like they were here.
