She-Hulk: Attorney At Law


Recommended Posts

So, Episode 3, The People Vs Emil Blonsky:

Spoiler
  • We're now well into the rhythm of the series, enough that the writers can move forward instead of world-building. Good.
  • Feeling very Boston Legal now.
  • Wong less happy facing lawyers than monsters. (Well, same difference.)
  • Never Google yourself, and ABSOLUTELY never read the comments. (But giggling like a maniac at how certain Very Online folks are going to take this bit.)
  • As expected, Jen's blood is clearly a main McGuffin: one of the assailants is listed as Thunderball, which I guess confirms The Wrecking Crew. Also the fact that they're frankly rubbish villains.
  • Pug's catfishing "B plot" is 100% unnecessary to the action, but hella fun and very in-style for A Lawyer Show.
  • Keep an eye out for more blink-and-you'll-miss-it Easter Eggs, one involving Wong's LinkedIn, and Emil getting what he wished for.
  • And if you thought it was just gonna be Marvel cameos, well... shots fired?
  • ...and another instant viral mid-credit. That one might divide the crowd, and it's teetering on the edge of cringe, but that last line sticks the landing for it.

 

WAKE UP YA MISCREANTS AND... HEY, GET YOUR OWN DAMN SIGNATURE.

Look out for me being generally cool, stylish and funny (delete as applicable) on Excelsior.

You really needed a name drop to confirm 

Spoiler

the guys with the glowing crowbar and the giant wrecking ball's identities? I'm ok with them being dumb thugs but they really should be more of a threat at least. They've become a bit of a punchline in recent years but early on they could give the Avengers a tough fight.

It's a fun show, I like it.

 

Something I've wondered for awhile why is Wong the Sorcerer Supreme?

 

I think it was mentioned in one of the movies (the latest Spider-Man?) that Wong "got it on a technicality" because Strange was blipped out for 5 years.

Someone had to defend the Universe while Dr. Strange was blipped.

That someone is Wong.

I think it was the scene where he floats down and lands on the icy landing. There's a blooper reel of Cumberbach slipping on the snow many times.

So far the show is growing on me and I hate shows where the characters look at or speak to the camera. I really enjoyed the way EP 3 ripped on the media. It was made-up but also very accurate at the same time.

They knew it was coming and they were ready, even down to casting an actor to do YouTube comments.

Who - glasses aside - appears to be the living incarnation of the Soyjak meme.

I had to look that meme up and I'm both proud of myself and ashamed at the same time.

I can have that effect on people, but usually they buy me a drink first.

Yes, it was in Spider-Man: No Way Home and that was the rationale. I'm cool with that; I'm a big fan of Benedict Wong the actor and Wong the character.

Yep.  In this case two Wongs do, in fact, make a right. 😉

So, episode 4:

Spoiler
  • Thought Matt Berry had hit the gym and had a glow-up for about 30 seconds.
  • Not a fan of Madisynn, but maybe that's due to one too many painful nights out when young.
  • Also all-too-familiar with terrible dates, and people wanting one specific side of you, but not the rest of you.
  • Wong chilling with the Sopranos is a nice conceit and points out it's a pretty lonely gig.
  • Distinctly lacklustre / filler episode...
  • ...or was it? Have we confirmed Jeffphisto?

Yeah.  Byrne's run is LEGENDARY.

My absolute favorite is the issue where a Photographer Snaps a photo of her, from a Helicopter, sunbathing Nude on the patio of her Penthouse. She spends the whole comic trying to keep the Photos from being published, in vain. But when they come out in print it turns out that someone in the publishing process thought it was a camera malfunction that caused her to be green, so they had the prints color corrected before publication. The photos didn't even look like her anymore.

or there are Sappers, Man I hate those Guys...)

Spoilers from this week:

Spoiler
  • Inconvenient wedding bottle episode! Most of which seems to be Jen hitting the bottle. And then Titania. Neither of which are civilised. (Fun, but in no sense civilised).
  • Never, ever get veneers, kids. They're really not good for you - my boss had them and had an unfortunate steak-related accident. Brush twice a day.
  • Introducing Mallory Book properly. She's more an antagonist in the books, but here seems professional, helpful, damn funny...
  • ...and something is off in Renée's performance. I have a feeling there's something she's hiding. Possibly to do with her kid.
  • Ah, it's variant Edna Mode, and some very fabulous suits. 
  • No tailgag. I am disappoint.
  • Who is HulkKing and why do I get the feeling it's her creepy tech bro date? Was he getting Mallory to act out of character?
  • I'm all for mocking incels, but having them as the actual villain group is maybe a step too meta.
