She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has been a mix of funny and silly for the whole season. Tatiana Maslany has made up for silly plots by making the main character likable. It was easy to understand how hard it was for Jennifer Walters to get used to her powers, date, work, and deal with sexism on social media.
This explanation is thrown out the window by a stupid ending. “Whose Show Is This?” lands with a stupid, annoying thud. A cheeky attempt to be clever backfires with a bunch of stupid twists and reveals. Her ability to break the fourth wall changes an ending that was too predictable and makes fun of Marvel Studios. It doesn’t work, and it shows how bad the show is.
She-hulk: Spoiler Warning
In the opening montage, the season is summed up with a nod to the classic 1970s show “The Incredible Hulk.” Jen wakes up in a DODC prison cell. With the help of a plea deal, Mallory (Renée Elise Goldsberry), Nikki (Ginger Gonzaga), and Pug (Josh Segarra) get her out of jail.
She can no longer turn into She-Hulk because she has to wear an inhibitor. Jen moves back in with her parents because she is sad. She gets fired from GLK&H.
An irate Jen wants to file a lawsuit against Intelligencia for slander. Nikki decides to get into the site and find out who the HulkKing really is. Jen goes to Emile Blonsky’s (Tim Roth) health retreat to get away from things. To get into Intelligencia, Nikki posts a video of Jen dancing when she was in college.
She is invited to a secret meeting, and when she gets there, she uses Pug as her cover identity. He talks with the disgusting men who hate women and hate She-Hulk. Todd, played by Jon Bass, shows himself to be the HulkKing. He walks up to the front of the room to introduce the speaker.
People cheer when the Abomination walks into the room. Right on time, Jen walks in, also stunned. Emile’s place is where the meeting will take place. He gets paid to talk. Todd is proud that he took Jen’s blood.
He sent Josh, played by Trevor Salter, to woo her. Todd puts ‘roids and himself into a hulk. Titania (Jameela Jamil) and Bruce (Mark Ruffalo) suddenly crash through the wall and join the fight.
Jen Takes Over The Writers Room At Marvel Studios
Jen cuts off the storyteller because she is disgusted. This is a stupid way to end it. She changes into She-Hulk, crawls out of the frame through the Disney+ portal, and charges into the Marvel Studios writer’s room.
Jen yells at them for making her life a show by changing the plot at the last minute. After signing a non-disclosure agreement, she gets rid of Marvel’s goons to get to K.E.V.I.N.
The Knowledge Enhanced Visual Interconnectivity Nexus is an artificial intelligence that uses algorithms to make MCU movies. Jen says that every Marvel movie is the same.
She doesn’t think that the way women are shown is fair. Jen wants to stop acting like a superhero and work on making her life better. K.E.V.I.N. agrees and says that the finale will be changed.
Todd is caught outside the compound. Jen says she will sue him. So Titania’s hope of getting beat up was dashed. Emile says that he broke the rules of his probation. He has gone back to his cell at the DODC, where he will stay for ten years.
Daredevil, played by Charlie Cox, shows up for the happy ending with the boyfriend. Matt Murdock eats lunch with her family. When Jen’s parents ask him how much money he makes, he and Jen laugh. Bruce comes with a visitor from Sakaar.
Skaar, his son, is with him. A few days later, She-Hulk confidently walks up the court steps as a lawyer. She has taken Todd and Intelligencia to court. In a scene after the credits, Wong (Benedict Wong) gets Emile out of jail and takes him to Kamar-Taj.
Insert the word “WTF” here. So… Jen could have halted the program at any time and adjusted it to her liking. In an instant, she could have found love, dealt with Titania, and abandoned her sexist internet bullies.
With K.E.V.I.N., showrunner Jessica Gao and director Kat Coiro deliver a remarkable performance. The hack attempt to mock MCU plots and Kevin Feige isn’t creative, but it is an extremely stupid attempt at self-deprecation.
Skaar’s appearance rescues the finale from becoming a total flop. I’m looking forward to seeing more Hulk characters with stronger stories. She-Hulk: The attorney at Law relocated its headquarters to the basement.
It attempted to address important issues through humor and failed miserably. My initial parallels to Ally McBeal and Fleabag were far too kind. Those shows were well-written. She-Hulk devolves when given the opportunity to be intelligent and significant.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is a Marvel Studios production. The complete first season is accessible on Disney+.
