She-Hulk must help Wong as he tries to convince a magician named Donnie Blaze to stop sending people through portals in the latest episode of “She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.” Meanwhile, Jen tries to get a date through a dating app, but it fails miserably, so she creates a profile as She-Hulk and receives numerous swipes. This leads to a big battle scene where Wong has to help Donnie Blaze after Donnie opens the wrong portal and has to pull She-Hulk away at midday to help in the fight.
This episode brought some of my fourth favorite wall breaks from the series so far. I really appreciated Jen telling everyone that Wong was “basically Twitter armor” for the week. It makes a lot of sense. While there are a lot of fair reviews for this show, there are also a lot of unfair ones. Usually unfair critics can be distracted by something they like. In this case, it’s Wong. It was a perfect line to call out the toxic part of the fanbase while admitting we have another “guest star of the week.”
I also really appreciated her comments after I started the “She-Hulk” profile and got a lot of swipes. Her comment that it’s “demoralizing for Jen” is terrific. Looks like she agrees to have an alter ego. Instead of Jen and She-Hulk being the same person, she shows that she accepts that the rest of the world sees her as two different people, so she has to treat them as such.
The only thing I don’t like about this series so far is the lack of Titania appearances. She’s been promoted as the show’s big bad, but we’ve barely seen her. Yes, she burst into court in the first episode and it was a beautiful scene. But, since then, we’ve only seen his name appear in newscrawls and web articles. We need to see her more. This Easter egg of Jen’s “who is she” didn’t land for me like the broken fourth wall, because it’s the show’s job to tell us who she is. It’s a case of Jen saying what the audience thinks isn’t good for the show.
Hopefully we’ll see more of Titania moving forward with her papers to Jen for trial. That means they’ll have to face off in the courtroom, ironically over the name She-Hulk. With five episodes remaining, I want to see how Titania becomes the main villain. Being in the background is great when there’s another obvious threat in front of our hero. It’s great for a drama, not so much for a legal comedy.
I’m still really enjoying this series overall, but there’s still a long way to go before I can really rank it. I enjoy it more than “Ms. Marvel” but not as much as “Moon Knight”. I enjoy comedy. I enjoy guest appearances. I loved Madisynn with two “N”s and a “Y” but not where you think. But I would like more in the courtroom and I would like more of Titania. Hope we move forward.
Rating: 3.5 stars
