She-Hulk Premiere Review: A Really Fun Show With a Heroine to Root For

Jen Smash!

Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk is out, and it was really, really fun. The Incredible Hulk’s attorney cousin made her debut and really did a great job at being funny and relatable with her antics and fourth-wall-breaking style. Let’s read in detail below.

She-Hulk Story and Performances

The premiere episode lets us understand how Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) became She-Hulk. But the episode also showed the bonding between the two cousins. Mark Ruffalo and Maslany shared wonderful chemistry, and their personalities go hand-in-hand. One is an earnest scientist, while the other is a wise-cracking attorney. In the 30-minute episode, which was like a sitcom, we get to see some pretty interesting things. Without going into spoiler territory, let’s say that it tells us the progression of the Hulk gene. But the writers made sure it doesn’t feel like another sitcom, but with a green character as the lead. No, the show gives a nod to the Avengers from time to time without making it feel forced.

Another matter to talk about is the CGI. Yes, we had problems when we saw it first, but the show has greatly improved them. It is not the very best, but it is not a surprise, seeing how the VFX teams had been complaining about Marvel’s tight time schedules and tighter budgets for their shows.

Final Verdict

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law¬†was going to be a sitcom, and it nailed all the beats of a sitcom, while not making us forget that it is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The first episode is the run-of-the-mill origin story, but the hilarious presentation and characters made sure nobody got bored. That’s your cue to go check She-Hulk out on Disney+ today!
