Here I am again reviewing She-Hulk even though it wasn’t my turn. Boba Phil simply turned it off half way through and passed me the turd sandwich. So here goes.
This episode was a mixed bag of some amusing parts and some that were quite frankly ridiculous. OK, it was mainly ridiculous.
Jen is on her way to a parole board meeting to defend Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth) and make her case for his early release. We get a mention of Wong from Doctor Strange and at that point Jennifer turns to the camera to explain this is her show and it won’t be filled with cameos, except for Bruce/Hulk, The Abomination and now Wong. Fairly amusing.
Megan Thee Stallion
As a side story we once again meet the white douche from episode two, Dennis Bukowski who wants to sue an ex-girlfriend. It turns out she is a shape-shifting Light Elf from Asgard and took the form of someone called Megan Thee Stallion to swindle Dennis out of a small fortune.
For those like me who have no interest in modern day “celebrities” and had to look up who this Megan Thee Stallion is, she’s a rapper most famous for having a song called WAP. WAP stands for “wet assed pussy”. The lyrics to this masterpiece are as follows:
Whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house (hol’ up)
I said certified freak, seven days a week
Wet ass pussy, make that pullout game weak, woo! (Ah)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, you fucking with some wet ass pussy
Bring a bucket and a mop for this wet ass pussy
Give me everything you got for this wet ass pussy
Beat it up, nigga, catch a charge
Extra large, and extra hard
Put this pussy right in yo’ face
Swipe your nose like a credit card…
And so on and so forth. For a company like Disney that is plagued with recent controversies surrounding grooming and paedophilia, it’s no surprise they would give a cameo to someone like Megan Thee Stallion on a show featuring superheroes that children hero worship. Classy.
Blonsky’s Parole Hearing
Back to Blonsky who is all zen and shit. Jennifer, who in the last episode was whining that she’s a trained lawyer and shouldn’t be awarded a job just because she’s She-Hulk, is now managing to mumble and fumble her way through the hearing… real professional like.
She wins the case which is mainly down to Blonsky making his own case. Tim Roth oozes charisma and charm throughout and is a rare bright light in an otherwise eye rolling episode. I can’t be bothered to go into any more description as my eyes are starting to bleed.
Bukowski’s Court Case
The Elf’s defence claim that Bukowski was stupid enough to believe the real Megan Thee Stallion was interested in him and therefore the case be dismissed because of his own stupidity.
Bukowski’s lawyer, a colleague of Jen, and a white male that is actually competent – shocking – puts Jen on the stand to build a character reference for Bukowski. This basically gives the writers an excuse to go on a 5 minute rant about arrogant white men, who are the victims of their own ego, chauvinistic, self-absorbed, blah, blah, blah. And therefore it’s totally feasible someone like that would fall for the Elf’s con.
Yeah, they win the case. Whatever. I’m amazed I made it this far to be honest. No wonder Boba Phil turned this shit off.
Oh yeah, the show went there. In an after credits scene we get She-Hulk blasting out Megan Thee Stallion’s “music” in her office while they both twerk. That’s right, Outposters, the same She-Hulk who has been constantly whining about not being taken seriously as a lawyer, is twerking in her office in full display of all her co-workers.
Boba Phil, you are doing this next week!
