The season finale to She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is here, and it left quite the impression!!! Multiple cameos, easter eggs, 4th wall being obliterated, and more! But, as always, SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!
Jen is locked up in a similar cell that Emil Blonsky was in, by Damage Control. Her friends arrive and tell Jennifer that she can be released only on the condition that she doesn’t transform into She-Hulk. Begrudgingly agreeing, Jen wears a power regulator, loses her job, and now lives with her parents. While slightly depressed, Jen refuses to give up on finding out who Intelligencia is. Suggested by Nikki to relax some, Jen reaches out to Emil at his resort cabin. Meanwhile, Nikki and Pug create a plan for Pug to infiltrate Intellengencia’s hideout and clear Jen’s name. With Nikki outside, Pug pretends to be a member, and discovers that one of Jen’s dates runs the group! Todd Phelps (the creepy dude with the power fetish) is the leader and he hired Abomination as a motivational speaker!
At the resort, Jen discovers that Blonsky is working with Intelligencia, and then Bruce shows up out of nowhere! So does Titania! And Todd stole Jen’s blood, so he has powers now. Then, in the show’s best moment, She-Hulk breaks the 4th wall again, going into the Marvel tab on the Disney Plus app and going to Marvel Studios. Wanting a better ending, She-Hulk asks the writers who’s in charge. They tell her that K.E.V.I.N makes all the decisions, so she makes her way toward him. When she finds K.E.V.I.N, (Knowledge Enhanced Visual Interconnectivity Nexus) a machine that designs Marvel projects, she’s explained that the show needs more action. Jennifer complains, however. Stating that the episode has a cliché, in the villain gaining the hero’s power (which, ironically is a plot point for a lot of Marvel films. Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Incredible Hulk, Ant-Man, for example). Instead, she wants the plot a little neater. While name-dropping other projects like the X-Men, Jen asks for certain moments changes. No battle royale, no Titania, no Hulk, and more Daredevil. Instead, Blonsky returns to jail for his involvement with Intellengcia, Todd is sued by Jen, Daredevil shows up out of nowhere and stays for a family cookout, where Bruce shows up! Bruce also makes a bombshell announcement, introducing his son, Skaar! We also see Wong break Emil out of prison again, apparently some sort of agreement between the two. With that, the ending of She-Hulk: Attorney of Law has concluded!
Ever since the show first aired, people have been criticizing She-Hulk, saying things like it’s “woke” or it’s the worst of MCU’s Phase 4. I say this, the critics are missing the point. While the show isn’t perfect (the sudden arrival of Skaar felt like it should be in a film, rather than a series, and some of the CGI looked a little iffy.), it can be clearly shown that this isn’t the typical action-packed MCU project. Its central focus is on comedy and how Jennifer can balance being a lawyer and a Hulk. I also see some critics saying that shows like Iron Fist is better than She-Hulk…. what show were they watching!? The show is also self-aware, mocking the trolls and itself. Basically, It’s Seinfeld and Ally McBeal mixed with superheroes. There were some subplots that I felt could have been rushed, and some that could have used more exploration, but I doubt this is the last we see of She-Hulk. I give the show 7.5 out of 10. Tell me your comments below, and till next time fellow blerds!
Another She-Hulk two-part review! Sorry for the delay, folks. Fortunately, the show is picking up speed. ESPECIALLY with “you-know-who’s” appearance! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Before we start, SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
The Retreat begins with Jen hooking up with a gentleman, Miller, from the last episode! Everything seems to be going well for Jen. Dates, texting, and some “grown-up” time. But out of the blue, Miller ghosts Jen. No more calls, texts, nothing. While dealing with this, Jennifer gets a call from Emil Blonsky’s parole officer. Apparently, the power inhibitor is damaged, and it may be possible that Blonsky may be attempting to leave the state. As it turns out, upon driving to Blonsky’s retreat, it’s only malfunctioned. Also, Emil is helping other super-powered individuals with their emotional issues. Unfortunately for Jen, two C-Listers, Man-Bull and El Aguila damaged Jen’s car, so she has to stay until repairs are done. While at the retreat, Jen meets more C-List villains, (including Wrecker from the Wrecking Crew, who attacked her in Episode 2!), and reluctantly expresses herself on how she’s viewed versus how she wants to be viewed. Emil and the group encouraged her to embrace both sides of herself, Jen, and She-Hulk. Later, we find that Miller is secretly working for the She-Hulk hate group, “Intelligencia” and stole a sample of her DNA!!
Ribbit and Rip It is the latest episode. We see a lame appearance of Leap-Frog, failing to stop a robbery. After hiring She-Hulk to represent him, for faulty equipment failure, she discovers that the same person who invented Leap-Frog’s suit is the stylist that made Jen’s special clothes. As Luke Jacobson is furious that Jen’s serving him a summons, he hires his own lawyer…Matt Murdock! We witness a legal battle of wits between Jen and Matt, with Matt stating that due to Leap-Frog’s failure of using the proper fuel for his jet boots, Jacobson isn’t legally responsible. Therefore, Matt wins his case, leaving Jen out of a designer for the Southern California Law Awards Gala. However, Matt and Jen share drinks, with Matt encouraging her to help people as both a lawyer and She-Hulk. While they certainly share a vibe, Matt gets a call and excuses himself. At home, Jen gets a call from Leap-Frog saying he’s being “attacked”. We see Jen finally putting on her super-suit, and just when she reaches Leap-Frog’s location, Daredevil jumps in. A brief scuffle between the two occurs, and can we say Matt has gotten a huge buff in skills! Jumping and flipping with ease, and with a new red and yellow costume! They discover that Leap-Frog kidnapped Luke, so they work together to save him. While Matt uses stealth, Jen smashes as only She-Hulk can. Together, they free Jacobson, who reluctantly makes Jen a dress for the gala. Jen and Matt share a romantic moment, which leaves them having some…” alone time”. After Matt leaves, Jen is ready for the gala. Upon receiving an award, “Intelligencia” strikes, hacking into the feed, bashing and shaming Jen. Enraged, Jen breaks the teleprompter and goes into a rage. While attempting to capture an “Intellegencia” agent. The Department of Damage Control stops her, guns at the ready!
Daredevil coming back, the secret organization making their move, She-Hulk “Hulking out”, it’s all coming together. My question is, what now? Will Jen lose her job? Will Matt come back and defend her case? And, who is behind “Intelligencia”?! 9 out of 10, for me! Post your comments below, and till next time, fellow blerds!
Sorry for lacking in my reviews on She-Hulk, everyone. It's not that I haven't enjoyed the show, but life sometimes gets in the way. So, since three episodes have been released, thus far, I'll be doing a summary of the past three episodes. Also, I'll be giving my personal thoughts on the show and predictions for what may happen later on! SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
"The People vs. Emil Blonsky" picks up right where the last episode left off; Jen now has to figure out a way to prove that Blonsky, aka The Abomination, didn't willingly break out of prison. With his pending release in danger, Jen is told by Emil that he was released by the new Sorceror Supreme, Wong! As Wong and Jen deliberate on a court strategy, an Asgardian shape-shifting elf has been posing as Megan Thee Stallion. While Jen has to prove Blonsky's innocence, she also must help a sexist co-worker from being scammed.
"Is This Real Magic?" gives us more Wong, as he asks Jen for legal advice. One of the dropouts from Karmar Taj, Donny Blaze, is abusing his teachings. While fighting off demons that Blaze, Jen is having trouble with her dating life, so she creates a profile but using her She-Hulk persona. After some horrible speed dates, She-Hulk finally gets lucky! Sadly, not only does her date not like her in "Jen form", she learns that socialite Titanna is suing Jen for trademark infringement! This brings us to the latest episode, "Mean, Green, And Straight-Poured Into These Jeans"! While friends Ramos and Pug discover a stylist that creates fashion for superheroes, Jen and co-worker Mallory Book must prove that Jen owns the "She-Hulk" moniker. While they do battle with Titanna in court, Jen meets superhero stylist, Luke Jacobson. While Jacobson eventually creates Jen some new clothes that match her "She-Hulk" form, we also see the red and gold Daredevil helmet!!!
What I love about this show, is that it doesn't take itself so seriously! It's a comedy series, not a drama. If you're expecting some serious moments, then keep looking. Also, the writers are aware of how negative critics are trashing the show, and mock them openly! That sort of action can backfire, but thankfully, it plays well. Especially with She-Hulk breaking the fourth wall. From easter eggs, to the impending appearance of Matt Murdock, She-Hulk: Attorney At Law is entertaining...and one of the few gems in Phase 4 MCU. Post your thoughts below, and till next time fellow blerds!
