I love the MCU.

Can someone quickly convince me to watch this?

Do you love Wong? Are you OK with female empowerment storylines? If yes, then give it a shot. If you're someone whom would roll their eyes at a strong female lead, pass completely. Unless something is coming later on we don't know about, this show doesn't appear to tie into the overall MCU story arc the way something like Falcon/Winter Soldier did.

I mean, there's a lot of thought that Bruce's story in the first couple episodes is leading into a World War Hulk plot.

Maybe the Hulk will fight Hugh Jackman's Wolverine on Battleworld in Avengers: Secret Wars.

Truly, truly odd. If you love the MCU, why would you have to be convinced to watch an MCU show?

Re: She-Hulk (S1E05) - Episode 5 - 9/15/22

I have not been a fan of this series due to its lack of seriousness, but I changed my expectations of what this series is about and enjoyed this episode quite a bit. Laughed at many scenes (the fashion designer, the ex-dates, the lawyer representing Jennifer, the court room scenes, etc.)

Not sure how this series will mesh with the more serious Marvel universe (or if it even will), but for a superhero comedy show it beats out Mr. Terrific and Captain Nice (if anyone remembers those shows.)
Spoiler:
Nice to see the Daredevil cowl in this show, but the Daredevil series with its gritty violence and dark themes don't seem to match up well with the She-Hulk show. Will see if Daredevil makes his appearance by the end of this series.

I find it rather ironic that Disney, perhaps the most aggressive company at filing trademark infringement lawsuits, has a show on their channel in which the lead character wins a trademark case against the person who actually owns the trademark.

Daredevil is making an appearance on the show at some point. It has already been shown in the trailer. Also, it seems that the new Daredevil series won’t be as dark and gritty as the Netflix series.

By the way, it was fucking heartbreaking to see how Jen had to take that she isn’t someone’s type but She Hulk is.


No after credits scene this week?

Curious as to how they will explain Matt being on the west coast. I guess Gladiator is not the one to make his costume like in the Netflix series. I kinda of wished we could have seen Yukio pick up a suitcase from the tailor.

Another silly and so much fun episode. This series knows what it is and hasn’t yet broke its pattern. Just stupid fun.

And who’s helmet was in the box? What’s in the box? And, why was there no end credit sequence? I mean they’ve all been silly, but why not continue the tradition? That’s odd.

Another great episode - Tatiana Maslaney continues to be a goddam delight. Love the even more comedic side to the MCU.

DD lived on the west coast for a while in the 70s series, and again recently in Mark Waid’s run.

This.

I loved how her cousin (or brother) came into her apartment and tried to get her to sign the packaging so he could sell it at a premium. He's an idiot, but he has heart.

Great episode.

This show is so much fun.

Not sure how I feel about a more "lighthearted" Daredevil, but we'll see what they do with that.

Looking forward to seeing She-Hulk's new wardrobe!

Even though we knew it was the title, my wife burst out laughing when they read off "mean, green and straight poured into these jeans". I think women can REALLY relate to this show.

The tailor could be shipping his helmet to him in New York. super hero tailors may be hard to find locally in the MCU.

This show definitely had a few laughs for me and that's what is keeping me watching at this point. The wall breaks and self deprecating humor keep me coming back.
