“She Hulk: Attorney at Law” - Episode 5 review

Story posted September 16, 2022 in Arts & Entertainment by Brendan Conroy.

It’s another week, and another “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” episode is in the books for Marvel fans.

In this episode we spend a majority of the time focused on a court case, in which Jennifer Walters is being sued for the trademark of her alias, “She-Hulk.”

For the viewers that remember Titania from the first episode, she was a rather minor antagonist. She-Hulk ends up down right before the closing credits, and now this week we see her once again as she brings lots of conflict to Ms. Walters and the rest of the law firm.

Titania had trademarked the name “She-Hulk” prior to the close of Episode 4, and decided to use it to promote her next big line of beauty products.

After making a visit to the beauty gallery and seeing these products being sold by Titania herself, Walters decides to take action. She finds herself a lawyer to hopefully save herself, as well as her firm from losing the case against her superhero rival.

Fortunately for She-Hulk, she had great representation in the case and is able to successfully win after presenting evidence that requires the return of minor characters from the previous episode. These characters provide great support to winning this case.

Now, what truly helped her win this case, was a dating profile in which she used the name “She-Hulk” as a way of identifying herself, rather than “Jennifer Walters.”

On the other side, Walter’s best friend Nikki works with another coworker to find a suit that can adapt to Walter’s size, both as her human and She-Hulk form.

Nikki spends most of the episode attempting to find this “secret” clothing designer who can make a suit of such capacity, and eventually does, leading to her working with a designer to make it happen.

This secret clothing manufacturer is eventually who Walters goes to in order to pick up her size-shifting suit before the end of the episode.

Right before the credits are about to roll, we are exposed to a familiar looking helmet sitting in a box, potentially teasing another cameo to take place in the upcoming episodes or even in future projects.

Now, to be completely honest, this episode did not impress me much at all. It seemed to stray away from its usual trend of following some sort of pattern, and almost felt like it was a “placeholder” episode for a lack of better ideas.

There is not much excitement in this episode, and it seems as though fans are cut short of any new drama or content that might make them want to return. It was, for lack of better words, dull.

The effort in this episode seemed almost forced, as if they needed to provide fans with something, even though it is not much.

With a total of nine episodes planned for this series, fans can only hope these next few episodes improve substantially, and provide more of the excitement we wait each and every week to see.

Rating: 1.5/5
