She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is the latest show from the MCU. I was personally interested in this show as it was promoted as a Sitcom. This seems like a good way to proceed with the MCU as it is starting to feel stale. Especially with the MCU getting stale with Thor: Love and Thunder being underwhelming. Even though I like Moon Knight that too felt rushed. So let’s see how She-Hulk fares…
*Mild Spoilers for the first two episodes*
She-Hulk establishes it tone pretty quickly. We meet Jennifer Walters as she breaks the fourth wall like her comic counterpart. While explaining how she became She-Hulk. The whole first episode is very fast paced. And it shows how Jen accidently gets her blood mixed with Bruce(her cousin) after a freak accident. So we are soon showing how she learns about her powers. Firstly, Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters is excellent. She and Mark Ruffalo have great chemistry and have a charming cousins/siblings relationship.
Unlike most superheros Jen does not want to fight crime in a physical sense. She is mostly distraught about how this ruins her law career which she built up for many years. This is in very contrast to most cases. but it is believable with how it plays out. We see how the world reacts to this reluctant superhero. We see how she gets fired as her turning into She-Hulk in court leads the court to through the case as a mistrial. It ends up with her needing to embrace the persona of She-Hulk in order to get a job representing Super humans. The Show is reliant on being a comedy rather than being a superhero action show and it is for its benefit. The comedy is Hit or miss but it when it works it works.
The Show is off to a good start. The Sitcom vibe is fun even though the comedy is hit or miss. Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters is awesome i am excited to see how it proceeds in the upcoming weeks.
