I've finally been put out of my misery. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is over! We don't have to experience this show ever again (Marvel, Kevin Feige, please don't give this a second season). If you didn't read my review, I hated this show. It was atrocious. I don't understand how this is what Phase Four has come to. I'm hoping this was just a misstep and Wakanda Forever puts the MCU back on track. That said, here's my ranking of all the terrible episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
9. The People vs. Emil Blonsky
This is possibly the worst thirty minutes of the MCU. The People vs. Emil Blonsky chooses to split focus between Abomination...and an Asgardian elf impersonating Megan Thee Stallion. What? Not only do they make Abomination a total goofball, but they actually have the real Megan Thee Stallion cameo in this episode. The after-credits involve She-Hulk twerking with Megan Thee Stallion. Like, really guys? This is what the MCU is now? I hate it so much.
8. Is This Not Real Magic?
I hate this episode slightly less than The People vs. Emil Blonsky, but episode four was just as terrible. Madisynn is probably the worst character in the entire MCU. She's so not funny and so, so annoying. They give you Donny Blaze...which is meant to be some kind of twisted homage to Ghost Rider, but it's just stupid. God. We also have She-Hulk going on multiple dates. Because that's what everyone wants to see in the MCU. A terrible CGI female Hulk going on dates. I HATE THIS SHOW.
7. Just Jen
This episode is terrible, but not for the same reasons as before. WHY THE ACTUAL F**K WOULD YOU TEASE DAREDEVIL AT THE END OF EPISODE FIVE AND NOT MENTION HIM IN THIS EPISODE???? THE WRITING IN THIS SHOW IS SO BAD. Sorry. I have a lot of pent-up anger towards this show. We also have a goofy fight scene between She-Hulk and Titania as well as a tease for Hulkking (who I thought was the Leader at the time). Ugh. Whatever. This show sucks.
6. Mean, Green, and Straight Poured Into Those Jeans
This episode was almost watchable. They re-introduce Titania and we get an episode where she sues Jen for her pseudonym. Because that sounds SO interesting. We get a dumb court case paired with this terrible, exaggerated MCU version of Edna Mode that results in a fun final tease that doesn't pay off in the next episode. Bleh.
5. Whose Show Is This?
I praise the finale of this show for going wild crazy wacky with it. This is not what I'd expect from a Marvel finale, and that's both its biggest strength and its biggest weakness. Is it weird and funny for She-Hulk to go visit Kevin Feige's office? Yes. Do I want that to be canon in the MCU? No. The finale makes fun of the show for having terrible writing, which isn't funny, because making fun of your show for being bad doesn't make your show good. Also, this is the worst villain reveal in the history of TV. I cannot believe that that doofus Todd guy is the big bad of the season. Unbelievable.
4. A Normal Amount of Rage
This episode is more frustrating than it is actively terrible. I liked the inclusion of Bruce. You kind of got to see what he does when he isn't saving the world. The big problem is that Jen is really unlikable in this episode, because she just yells at Bruce and constantly insults him, which you don't like, because we've known Bruce for fourteen years at this point. Not horrible. But still bad.
3. Superhuman Law
This episode also isn't very good, but it's also watchable. Superhuman Law reintroduces Abomination and pays off that weird scene in Shang-Chi. They present some interesting ideas about Abomination that they never really expand on, but it's just fun to see Tim Roth in here again. I cannot say that I actually enjoyed this episode, because it still has all the problems of the rest of the show with all the silliness and terrible writing. Watchable? Yes. Good? No.
2. The Retreat
This episode was decent, I guess. It does some interesting stuff with Jen and actually develops her character. There's something entertaining about having Abomination in this entirely different phase of life, even though his character change is ridiculous. It feels like this episode actually moves things forward instead of just doing another horrible situation of the week story. It's not great, but it's not really that bad. This is what I would've preferred more of in this show.
1. Ribbit and Rip It
This...is not even close. Episode eight is, for my money, the only true good episode of this show. Throughout the whole season, I was terrified for Daredevil's appearance, because I thought that they'd make a goofy, stupid version of him that I'd hate. They didn't. He has a few quips that I wasn't a fan of, but he felt shockingly consistent with the Netflix character. Daredevil is, obviously, what makes this episode good, but we also have some actual superhero stuff. It's the only episode of this show that feels like it takes place in the MCU. I really liked it. And I wish this is what the whole show was.
