SHE-HULK: ATTORNEY AT LAW FIRST REVIEWS: TATIANA MASLANY IS ‘ABSOLUTELY PERFECT’ IN THE NEW MARVEL SERIES, CRITICS SAY
As showrunner Jessica Gao has confirmed in recent interviews, “She-Hulk” takes place a relatively short amount of time after “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” which means we’re also past the events of “Avengers: Endgame.” This series is filled with MCU callbacks and Easter Eggs and cameos, but even if you don’t have a doctorate in all things Marvel, the writers do a splendid job of telling this particular story in a straightforward and relatively simple fashion, making it easy to digest. —Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
The “She-Hulk” team doesn’t lack for comedy writing talent (with alums from “Robot Chicken,” “On My Block,” “Santa Clarita Diet,” and actual She-Hulk comics), but the show still searches for its voice, bogged down by larger tasks of fitting into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, developing Phase 4, and establishing this character in a world teeming with superheroes. In the four episodes screened for critics, there’s no hint of where “She-Hulk” is heading. —Proma Khosla, IndieWire
Jen works on hero and villain cases, notably involving Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth) and Wong (Benedict Wong), connecting this series to The Incredible Hulk as well as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. There are other connections as well to other films and characters that I won’t spoil here, but that doesn’t even include the much-anticipated inclusion of Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, which does not happen in the first four episodes. —Alex Maidy, JoBlo’s Movie Network
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law
Lets get one thing out of the way: There are a million reviews on here detailing the infuriating review bombing from the ever-misogynistic Marvel fandom, so I don’t think we need one more. But, while I do want to keep this as an honest review rather than a retaliation, I will say that, yes, I’m just as annoyed and disappointed as you that this kind of review bombing is still going on.
With that said, I think the first bit of She-Hulk was fantastic. It’s the perfect end-of-summer, light hearted show for comic fans, mcu fans, and general viewers alike. Yes, if you’re expecting a serious, hardcore superhero show, you’re going to be thrown off. But, seeing as it hasn’t been marketed as that, I don’t see why that should be an issue.
She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Review
Once we get into the show proper, She-Hulk really hits its stride. This is an MCU series that really embraces the medium — four episodes in, it starts leaning into a case-of-the-week format, with Jennifer and the Superhuman Law Division handling misdemeanours of the mystically powered and magically trained. There are threads linking each episode — this is not a full-blown procedural — but She-Hulk’s ability to introduce new stories and characters that expand the Marvel world in a fun, small-scale way is incredibly promising. Though we know more Loki is coming, She-Hulk — free, for now, from the shackles of feeding into the larger Multiverse saga — feels like Marvel’s first real opportunity at a show that could run and run for multiple seasons.
Laugh-out-loud funny, packed with interesting themes, and just an all-round good time, She-Hulk breaks new ground for Marvel’s TV shows — and is one of their best small-screen offerings yet.
She-Hulk: Series Premiere Review
She-Hulk: Attorney At Law hits all the right notes as a sitcom while still nailing the beats you’d expect out of an entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though the first episode is all the necessary, run-of-the-mill origin story you’d expect, none of it is presented in a way that could be considered boring. And yes, the effects look better than the first trailer you saw.
