    I need to try and finish this season. Stuck at episode 7.

    The final two episodes were highly enjoyable, I found.

    Ditto that. I wasn't fond of the series at first but as I got into it (gave up my preconceptions) I really liked it.

    The last two episodes were great IMHO.

    The Marvel Assembled episode for this one is really fun.

    It's up? Sweet. I'll watch it as soon as I get home from work.

    It was outrageously fun. You could tell everyone was having the best time of their lives.

    Looks like I accurately predicted which scene he would be talking about when he delivered the "super easy, barely an inconvenience" line.

    Super easy, barley an inconvenience.

    You were right. I finished the show last night. I thought it was a lot of fun. I really liked all the characters. Even the bad guys were great. Leap Frog was funny. They all were actually.

    I loved the retro introduction they did...

    If for nothing else that intro made the whole show worthwhile (obviously there were other great things as well though.)

    Just finished watching the entire series, and loved every minute of it. Funny, well-acted, and a great nod to its comic origins.

    :) Am hoping She-Hulk 2 is in the works somewhere!

    Edit: I knew I’d seen Jen Walters father before! It’s Mark Linn-Baker from Perfect Strangers!

    I thought "She-Hulk: Attorney-at-Law" was a fun, yet badly written series. I don't see myself watching any future seasons . . . if it has any.

    I enjoyed it. It didn't take itself seriously. It seems like there won't be other seasons. The reaction to the show was quite negative.

    Then you clearly haven't read this thread. Many of the people who reacted to this show so negatively are the ones the show were calling out in the first place.

    On the whole I believe the reaction to the show was quite positive. Some negative views were anticipated by the writers and shot down in the scripts before the show even aired.

    Basically, I think any negatives were from those who had an agenda from the start. Yes, I think there was a "message" of female perspective in this show. I appreciated it and don't think there was anything to complain about. I've yet to read a thoughtful, fact-based complaint about the show's presentation that it was insulting to men (me being a man) that didn't insult the complainer far more than the writers.

    Overall, I thought the writing was brilliant.

    She-Hulk is the first live-action MCU show which was actually written like a TV show, rather than an overstuffed movie cut into six bite-sized chunks.

    I think it was very effective at what it wanted to do. People are just upset because they had completely different expectations.

    I agree with all of this! The writing was top notch--and I love how they made the internet trolls who had been campaigning against the show, the big bad of the series--anticipating the reaction to the show well before it went to the cameras. The only thing that could have made it better would have been Carol Danvers--I would have loved to see a conversation about misogynistic fan boys between the two of them.

    Yes at the beginning, but they gave up on the premise entirely by the last two episodes.
