After the abomination of last week’s episode, I figured we could just go up from there.
However, after watching the latest and most absurd episodes of the series to date, I’m now seriously wondering if that’s even possible. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law It could be the worst TV show ever made.

Strong woman She has a lot of problems, and beyond her blatant hate, the biggest one is that she has no direction.
During a cable season that averages 16 episodes, you’d expect to get a few filler episodes that have nothing to do with the overall story of the series.
However, in case Strong womanEpisode 5 is the second filler episode (after Aunt Wine’s Facebook post surfaced last week) of its short nine-episode season.
Talk about wasting people’s time.

This show exists only because it is about a superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
At this point in the story, Jennifer Walters is not a hero, as she makes clear in her multiple denunciations of the idea that she could be a costumed crime fighter.
Hell, she’s hardly a lawyer.
Strong woman He also suffers from the fact that he has no disguised villains for fans to root against.
In fact, the only thing that comes close to a “bad guy series” Strong woman She has feminist cartoons of guys you keep meeting up on dating apps.

Worst of all, the show is clearly not funny, and with every attempt at humor it seems to patiently play the chicken of its viewers.
What do we have then?
We’re left with an episode about copyright and clothing.
This is it.

The A-plot from this week’s episode revolves around the copyright conflict between Jade Giantess and psuedo-supervillain (if you can even call her) Titania over the name She-Hulk, which the latter recorded in retaliation for her. bad humiliation In the first episode.
At this point, Titania is nothing more than Khloe Kardashian with superpowers.
Speaking of, we still don’t know exactly Why Titania attacked She-Hulk in that episode.
With no official word left, I’m left to guess that in an effort to impress viewers, the first episode was almost re-tooled with footage from later in the series that would explain why these two are absolutely enemies.

The fact that they were so willing and able to slice up the series’ story structure in post-production is another sign of that Strong woman It has no direction.
This show is a mess.
But do not worry, dear viewers, because the plot of Episode B is more interesting.
And interestingly, I mean it’s pointless.

While the episode doesn’t focus on Jen’s current problems, the episode follows BFF Nikki and her legal friend a pug (who appears to change character and speaks in a voice between each episode) as they search for “Drip Broker,” a secret fashion designer who works exclusively in superhero costumes.
(Also, for the record, I still suspect that Pug is gay, as he is the only male so far on the show who has received any amount of positive portrayal.)
In the end, the two are introduced to the same man, Luke Jacobson, a character who feels like he’s been snatched from the lineup of contestants in RuPaul’s Drag Race Finally before putting on his makeup, Luke agrees to take on the task of not just crafting Jen a custom shape-shifting business suit.
Feeling inspired by his new client, he also threw in her first superhero costume for free.

Don’t worry, you won’t see it in this episode, as this story isn’t going anywhere, and after being forgotten mid-episode, it’s revealed to be a long way to prep for the reveal of Daredevil’s new helmet in the future from his cameo next week.
Of course, for those of you who are waiting for Daredevil to debut in the MCU, keep in mind that the writers of this show won’t use any of the canon from the Netflix series. Brace yourselves for something reckless.
On the topic of Jane’s fashion date with Luke, their interaction in the last moments of the episodes shows a very strange editing error.
Arriving at Luke’s studio on time to try on her new clothes, the stylist leads Jen to the changing room, helping her inside before handing her a suit off the rack next to him.

Strangely, as soon as she received the suit, a noise emerged from inside the changing room, followed by an excited response from Jane as she set her eyes on the clothes.
This delivery follows a brief moment as Luke, looking at Jen, completes his work before turning around to close the changing room curtains and give her the privacy to change her clothes.
At this point in the scene, since there is no zipper that Locke hasn’t handed, the designer appears to be simply looking at Jen naked as she takes off her own clothes.
However, the next moment reveals the source of this error, as Luke then hands Jane her superhero dress as it was packed into a garment bag – a garment bag that has a zipper and can be heard being unzipped for the next few moments.

What does this mean? This means that the series’ production team fell asleep while driving and thought both of Jen’s new outfits came in garment bags, even though her business suit came off the shelf as is.
She’s young, but how Jen seems to have no problem with Luke watching her undress, it’s a mistake that totally breaks what you might have had a little indulgence.
On the topic of the series’ lazy production team, the visual effects of this episode are arguably the worst in the series to date.
Some of the visual effects look completely patchy, as if there was no time to do post-production on some scenes before they air.

Oh, and as a bonus? A show whose actors and crew regularly complained about men portraying women, and whimpered and denounced men, reruns this “sexy male feminist” episode from the final episode just in order to let the audience know he’s a sexy feminist.
With that kind of mentality at the forefront of her series, it’s no surprise that Strong womanThe showrunner pays 40 and is still single.
I know this is a shorter review, with an appropriate amount of it devoted to a single editing error, but that’s because there isn’t much to say about this episode.
Nothing happened. I saw more plot development in a 10-minute episode of Doug (Nickelodeon Doug, not Disney Thor****) than I did here.
If there’s anything positive about this episode, it’s that it can be seen as the calm before the storm, as I have a good feeling there will be a lot of people going to be pissed off with this series after their favorite Hornhead gets Disney – Pure Therapy Week .
That, and this episode was at least shorter than the one before it.
