The last few weeks of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law have left me feeling mixed about the show. This week’s episode, however, was the first one that felt like maybe the story was finally hitting its stride.
With another guest star appearance from Wong and plenty of interesting characters, this episode felt fun/funny to watch.
What was most promising about this episode was its entertainment value. This undoubtedly was the best episode so far and if this trend continues (and I’m saying this knowing Daredevil is coming which is going to be awesome) this show, by its conclusion, could be really good. It’s not meant to be something as profoundly defining as Loki or as psychologically interesting as Moon Knight but it will mark its place in the MCU as a welcome addition to the franchise.
And this week, thankfully, made me like Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk again.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

I had high hopes for this one after reading your review, but… I was a little disappointed again. Wong was ok. Madisynn was like nails on a chalkboard to me — Marvel keeps throwing these party animals at us as humor characters, and it just doesn’t click with me AT ALL. The actress did an ok job, just… the character just missed with me altogether. She-Hulk herself was fine. I just… don’t feel like this series is going anywhere. Like, is there a central plot with a villain in it somewhere that I’ve missed, or is it just sort of random humor of the week?

That is totally understandable. It’s definitely a show that feels like you’re either going to love it or you’re going to hate it. Two weeks ago I didn’t like the show, now I’m warming up to it, but I get it.
In terms of a villain, I think there is a primary antagonist that will arise in the coming episodes but who that could be, I have no idea.
I wouldn’t go that far… I don’t _hate_ it, I just don’t _love_ it either. It’s an okay thing to watch, but there’s nothing just stand-out good _or_ bad about it. It’s not actively irritating me like Falcon and Winter Soldier did, and it’s not just oppressively “holy cow, why was this even made, everyone’s just mailing it in with thin/awful material” like Hawkeye was. It’s a relatively unambitious superhero comedy that is arguably delivering to the low ambitions that it’s striving for… which is kind of damning with faint praise, I suppose, but not everything’s going to be epic and this show seems strangely content not to be.
