In this episode of She-Hulk: Lawyer, Jennifer Walters has sex with a manbaby, gets spooky, then cries about it in therapy.
That’s it. Both A plot and B plot. That’s all that happened.

In 2014, before their fight at UFC 182, then-UFC champion Jon Jones told Daniel Cormier that “every ounce of training you put into this fight is going to be a waste of your life.”
This is exactly how I feel after watching every episode of She-Hulk: Lawyer.
Guys, the first season of this show is only nine episodes long, and for the second time in three weeks, She HulkThe 30-minute running time of gave us nothing to talk about.
A superhero show in name only that’s not even good enough to be called a sitcom, legal drama, or really anything.
To be perfectly honest, it should never have given the green light at all.
She Hulk could be the worst thing to ever come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – and yes, that includes Captain Marvel and eternal.

In case you’ve forgotten, Jen went to a wedding last week to steal the spotlight from a former high school sweetheart while her paralegal dealt with a client who would rather kill himself than deal with the women in this universe .
This week’s “Writer of the Week” Zeb Wells, who is perhaps best known for writing several episodes of the Adult Swim show robot chicken as well as numerous Spiderman Comics for Marvel, decides to focus on Jen’s romantic interest in the aforementioned marriage.
Although his name is Josh, we will refer to him as “Spencer Baculi” due to the fact that they are basically the same type of simp.

Since ‘Spencer’ is the only man in Los Angeles who wants to be with Jen when she’s not She-Hulk, after a few dates she ends up sleeping with him.
After that, however, days go by without her hearing from him — no calls, no texts — and so she begins to obsessively hover over her phone, hoping to hear from him.
This is the plot of the entire episode. I’m not exaggerating.
There are about three, maybe four scenes in total in this episode, all of which revolve around Spencer’s alleged “ghosting” of Jen.
Still no Daredevil, by the way, and still no She Hulk great suit.
When she brings Tim Roth back for another appearance, at some point during her sulk, Jen is asked to accompany Emil Blonsky’s parole officer to check him out for a malfunction in his ankle monitor.
When she arrives at Blonsky’s secluded retreat, she finds him running a pirated anger management camp (which may or may not be a front for something more nefarious) for people with low superpowers.

Blonsky’s clientele includes the MCU versions of the comic book originals Man-Bull, El Águila, Saracen, Porcupine, and The Wrecker, the crowbar-wielding member of The Wrecking Crew. She-Hulk BTFO’d back in episode two with ease, whom the series portrays as having changed from his old ways, despite never really having a character at all.
The whole “camp” concept feels like either a poorly written babyface twist for these characters, or an even worse setup for a future heel turn that audiences will see coming since episode two.
While there, Jen vents her dating issues to the group, and the half-villains just sit back and listen.
Of course, when they interfere, they all speak and react like women, even though they are men.
In a series that seems to exist only for 40-year-old women to project their Los Angeles dating frustrations onto the Jade Giantess, the only semblance of a theme here is that Jen continues to sleep with men, only to end up being rejected and heartbroken.
A wise person would take this as an indication that the “hook-up culture” is not good for a woman’s mental state.
But because She Hulk‘s authors are modern intersectional feminists who hate men (needless to say I know), they will not allow the promiscuous lifestyle constantly promoted by progressive young women to be portrayed as leading to a life of unhappiness and lead to bitterness toward the opposite sex.

From the first episode of She HulkJennifer Walters was portrayed as an angry, selfish cunt who’s kind of surprised that no self-respecting man wants to date her.
It’s now six episodes later and the show has yet to give audiences a single reason to like their character. So why on earth would the writers think anyone would care that she’s stressed out about a one night stand that doesn’t call her back?
She-Hulk is the living embodiment of a neoliberal white woman: drunk, angry, bitter, middle-aged, and consistently excellent despite being terrible at her job.
The only positive spins I can think of for the show at this point is that it only has two episodes left and given the Nielsen ratings it’s doubtful we’ll get a second season. Not even luring She-Hulk into another character’s show could help her at this point.
Instead of feeling sorry for myself for having to watch this show for your entertainment, I feel sorry for the women who relate to trash like that.
Identifying with this show is like betraying yourself into the world of being associated with an unsympathetic female protagonist who, despite having superpowers, thanks to her personality doesn’t want anyone around.
I wish there was an actual plot, plot, or topic I could sit here and discuss with you, but none of that exists in this corner of the MCU.
Here all men are bad because some of them don’t call back after sex.
This episode of She Hulk was the worst thing i watched last week and i watched the broncos vs niners game.
