    I'm enjoying She-Hulk for what it is, a fun show with silly humor I like and some pretty solid performances. It is certainly not my favorite MCU chapter, and I doubt it's something I'll rewatch.
    But I don't dislike any specific part of it. I thought the twerkscene was a bit weird, but that was one attempt at humor that didn't work for my specific taste. Others enjoyed it, so that's great.
    It's a great 30 minutes give or take on thursday when I get home from work and enjoy dinner with something fun to watch.

    Am I the only one that would be more interested if the person they teased was Squirrel Girl instead?
    Yeah, anyone just holding out for Murdock to show up is going to be sorely disappointed. I mean sure, having Matt back is great, but it's just a cameo, and it's a cameo on She-Hulk. It's going to be a She-Hulky cameo, with all which that entails!

    Well Squirrel Girl is a member of the Great Lakes Avengers, as is Mr Immortal.

    At this rate they are not going to have the full team till the end of season 2.

    I hope they make a meta joke about it when he does show up. Like Jen looking into the camera and saying "Yes, the moment many of you were hoping for."

    I've been following who has been writing and directing the various episodes and trying to see if the differences are noticeable. The next two episodes will be the first written by guys, also ones with both comic book and comedy experience, so I'm curious. That might be a signal of things ramping up perhaps getting people with work in comic action.

    It is true though, the show is great in different ways from The Mandalorian. ;)

    My only issue with the show is the supporting cast just isn't that interesting. The guest characters like Wong have been more interesting than any of them. Tatiana Maslany is carrying this show big time. If they come back next season dump everyone except She Hulk. Hire Madison as receptionist or something and then add a few other characters that are quirky and funny.

    ^ Yeah I'd agree with that, none of the regulars are that memorable. (outside of Tatiana who's wonderful of course)

    I fully expect a very literal wink at the camera.

    I like Nikki and Mallory a lot but I think that's more due to the strength of the performances than the depth of the writing.

    But you know what, for a half-hour comedy that's deliberately focused on the titular lead and not an ensemble cast (as oppose to, say, Frasier which was always suppose to be about more than just the titular lead), I'm fine with that.

    I guess the more obvious parallel would be how Ally McBeal focused on its cast but I never watched that show so I only know what I saw from commercials.

    I actually watched Ally McBeal for the first time recently and just finished a month ago. The show was really good. Also the supporting cast was great. Fish and John Cage and Elaine were especially my favorites. This show while good is not close to being as good as Ally McBeal but it could even be better with a better supporting cast because you would think with Superhero clients you could do all sorts of weird court cases. Heck you got even talk of Howard the Duck on the show. He could be hired to investigate clients.

    That strikes me more as an "Onlyfans" pseudonym than something caring parents would name their baby.

    However the writers can name her whatever they want in order to encourage viewers to perceive her a special way.
