There’s been a general consensus that these marvel shows are a bit lacking when compared to the films. They haven’t really had a show that has reached the height that the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) has had in the past. However, She-Hulk: Attorney At Law may prove to break the mold only time will tell but it’s on to a great start!
The MCU’s use of the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) is one of the most common criticisms I hear. You can’t really hold the fans responsible either because he hasn’t had much opportunity to perform since his debut. The Russo Brothers, who directed Endgame, even acknowledged nerfing the Hulk. Considering how strong he is, they were unsure of how to include him in the plot.
For the fans who just wanna see Hulk smash they really don’t get many satisfying moments. However, In She-Hulk: Attorney at Law I really love the fact that they bring back Smart Hulk. He’s funny and his relationship with She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany) is very enjoyable.
Sitcom Done Right
Since WandaVision was the first of the MCU’s shows to air, the results have been somewhat variable. Although the concept was sound, the execution could have been improved. The majority of the show is a sitcom, parodying popular shows like I Love Lucy, Malcolm in the Middle, and others, but one thing was glaringly lacking throughout: humor.
Although I don’t think She-Hulk is absolutely hilarious, it had me laugh throughout the first episode, so it looks to be heading in the right direction in terms of comedy. The post-credits scene is one of the funniest parts, so stay after the credits roll because there will be a nice surprise waiting for you.
When all is said and done, She-Hulk may prove to be one of MCU’s best TV productions. It has a clear vision of what it wants to be, and it executes that vision expertly. Despite the fact that there are still many episodes to go, if they can maintain this level of consistency, we’re in for a genuinely entertaining show.
