‘She-Hulk’ Just Might Be the Next Great MCU Show

It’s here folks! She-Hulk has now made its highly-anticipated premiere on Disney+ and yes, it’s already a blast. Consisting of nine 30-minute episodes, She-Hulk is an action-comedy and that’s exactly what the pilot details in an exciting fashion. Jessica Gao, a writer for critically-acclaimed comedies like Robot Chicken and Rick and Morty, has imbued this show with distinct feminism and hilariousness.

Even though Jennifer Walters is a brand new character Tatiana Maslany and Jessica Gao have created a character who feels fully established. The fact that she’s Bruce Banner’s cousin doesn’t seem weird or forced, she feels like she’s always known him, we’ve just never spent enough time with Banner to contemplate that he had family members. And their dynamic in this show is absolutely fantastic.

The pilot has already established what can only be presumed as several story threads that will evolve in the rest of the series. The dominating storyline is Jennifer’s reluctance to be a superhero. She doesn’t want the woes that come with superhero life and she has a completely valid reason why. It makes her feel human and relatable. I loved that the most about this episode: how it already made me care about and like Jennifer Walters.

The only con of the pilot was that it flew by really quickly. One second, she was She-Hulk, the next minute, the episode had concluded. However, I do appreciate that the next eight episodes are going to be solely about her being She-Hulk and all of the shenanigans that come with such a job. I can already tell this show is going to be very, very fun.

I can’t wait until next week.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

  1. I got rid of Disney+ the other day. I just couldn’t justify the cost anymore. Everything is eating in to what limited extra cash I may have, and that was one of the first to go. I may resub once Mandalorian comes back, and give a few of these new shows a look. But they are not long running enough for me to get invested in them.

      1. I think it’s becoming too much with all the streaming services. Everyone has a few good shows but the cost for everything is getting crazy. Especially now that I’m paying $200 more a month for gas just to go to work. I don’t want to know what food is costing. Lol.

  2. I said it in my own review, but I’m totally okay with saying this is one of the best series openers the MCU has had on the service.

    I can sympathize with the add-up of streaming service costs, though. I’ve started taking a dcritical eye at what I might want to keep in the near future, myself. That said…. Disney+ will absolutely be the last one to go. I’ll probably leave an instruction in my will for my next of kin to make sure it gets shut off when I die or something.
