She-Hulk Episode 3: The People vs. Emil Blonsky

Overall 8.1/10


Story 7.9/10

Jennifer Walters tries to weather the storm created by news of Abomination’s prison break. Meanwhile, her alter ego gains a lot of popularity. It makes things a little difficult for Jen, who has her life upended by rumors on social media and reporters that keep tabs on her.


Cameos are the rule of the day for the show. The audience has enjoyed at least one every episode. This one is no exception.


The cameos are really strong. Besides using them as tools to tie together the various Marvel properties, they also serve as pivotal elements of the story. It's possible that we could see a cameo every week as Jen Walters defends various heroes and villains in the MCU. It just gives viewers yet another reason to tune into the show each week.


The writers treat viewers to even more humor in this week's episode as they double down on more Buckowski. But he's not the only one that brings the funny.


Character 8.2/10

Maslany proves that she has great comic timing. Her ability to break the fourth wall and talk directly to viewers is a nice touch. It adds to the humor and gives her an even greater connection to the audience.


And Jen Walters seems to be adjusting to the new world that she finds herself in. In fact, Jen doesn't even bat an eye when the Sorceror Supreme makes a grand entrance that the audience has seen so many times before. But it's Jen's first. And she acts as if he just strolled in through the front door. But perhaps that does make sense. Her client is Abomination. Her cousin is the Incredible Hulk. And lest we forget, she is the She-Hulk. It's just another day at the office for her.


She seems to take it all in stride. But how is she so well-balanced? At this point, she's even better than Wong at maintaining self-control. It'll be interesting to see if she'll remain this cool under pressure as the writers turn up the heat.


Final Thoughts

This episode doesn't disappoint. It is even more humourous than the previous two. Somehow Bukowski taking the brunt of the jokes offers a surprising feeling of satisfaction. And we also learn that there is most certainly another level to Maslany's genius. She makes comedy look effortless.
