She-Hulk Series Review

SHE-HULK: ATTORNEY AT LAW SERIES REVIEW

After a freak accident, attorney Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) is contaminated by her cousin’s blood which contains lethal levels of gamma radiation. Ordinarily, that would mean death, but when your genetic cousin is Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), the Incredible Hulk himself, that means you get Hulk powers, too. Unfortunately for Jen, balancing her personal life with a career in a male dominated profession is about to get exponentially more difficult once the world learns she has superpowers. While humor has always been a staple of the MCU, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is Marvel Studio’s first live action situation comedy. A very self-aware, very meta, legal sitcom, to be exact. Years before Deadpool hit the comic book stands, She-Hulk was smashing the fourth wall, and offering up a stream of in-jokes and metacommentary that skewered the superhero genre, the comic book industry, and fan expectations. Like her comic book counterpart, TV show Jen knows she’s a character in a TV show and often addresses the audience to critique toxic fanboys, the show’s writing, and Marvel’s own formulaic approach to blockbuster story-telling. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has a stacked cast, fun MCU cameos, and an irreverent sense of meta-humor, but was that enough to successfully make the transition from page to screen? Our crack legal team Harmoni, Beau, Sarah Jane, and Marco overrule any objections from online trolls, and deliver their final arguments for why you should give this sweet and silly show a fair trial.

YOUR REVIEWERS

 

Marco Noyola (Digital Noise, Highly Suspect Reviews, Screener Squad, Audio Editor)

By day, Marco is a mild-mannered office worker, but by night he is a mild-mannered movie watcher. He does other mild-mannered stuff too.

“You don’t need to follow me. You don’t need to follow anybody!”

 

 

 

Beau Paul (Highly Suspect Reviews, The Original Gentlemen, Screener Squad)

Beau Paul is an Austin native, an actor, and a writer. Sometimes all at once! Previously he has attempted to be an internet entertainer (the funny ha-ha kind, not the naked moneymaking kind) at Spill.com, and now here on OneOfUs.net. You can read his pithy witticisms and the retweeted material of funnier, cleverer people on Twitter or Facebook, and can buy him stuff on Amazon.

 

 

 

Sarah Jane (Highly Suspect Reviews, Screener Squad)

Sarah Jane was born and raised in Southern California but currently calls Austin, TX her home. She’s seen over 5,700 movies so far with zero plans on stopping. She has a penchant for all things exploitation, and she loves Godzilla with all her heart. Her favorite films are Deep Red, Le Samourai, and Miller’s Crossing. When she isn’t watching movies, she’s busy herding her four cats, her husband, and her 11-year-old kiddo. She’s been a contributor to TalkFilmSociety, Daily Grindhouse, FThisMovie!, Looper, and the Austin Chronicle. You can find her on Twitter and Letterboxd at @fookthis.

 

 

Harmoni Anderson (Screener Squad, Highly Suspect Reviews, Unstabletop Gaming)

Harmoni is a mermaid-haired, millennial, rum drinking, Section 31, Slytherin (who’s divorced J.K. Rowling) preschool/nursery teacher and multi genre geek who also loves all things film, tv, fashion, makeup, and an embarrassingly huge BTS stan. Like really embarrassing. As in, mention them and then sit back and watch the insanity. Harmoni likes being able to game and talk movies/TV with people that aren’t 3 feet tall or all that demanding of her. Plus she can curse at us and not get fired….so bonus!
