Beginning with a hilarious tribute to Lou Ferrigno’s “The Incredible Hulk” series and then quickly shifting into serious repercussions for Jen’s understandable outburst at the end of last week’s episode, “She-Hulk’s” season finale manages to marry these two tones together to create something truly special.
Daredevil is back!
While it may seem like another detour at first, “She-Hulk” confronts its plot head-on in The Retreat. While it might not spell out exactly where the show is heading going into its final two episodes, and with next week almost certainly seeing the return of Daredevil, this week’s episode takes the time to be a bit more serious. It develops Jen into a more well-rounded character while simultaneously taking the plot in a dark but not necessarily surprising direction.
Instead of Daredevil, we get a wedding episode this week. I’m not mad or disappointed, just amused at how Twitter will react.
“She-Hulk” is back! Though she obviously never left, her name’s trademark was just busy being taken by the villain Titania (Jameela Jamil).
Yes, I know Wong appeared in the last episode, but that was in a small, supporting role. This week, he's given the time and spotlight he deserves.
Though its premiere was somewhat weak, the second episode helped the series establish its identity in the MCU. The People vs. Emil Blonsky, doubles down on last week’s silliness, paving the way for “She-Hulk” to satirize the MCU from within. This series is proving to be a great tool in the universe’s arsenal to self-evaluate and to see if the law in their universe is as slow to update as in the actual U.S. (spoiler: it is).
There’s been a lot of discourse about this show, some positive, but primarily vitriolic. Let’s address all the room’s elephants all at once: "She-Hulk" isn’t even remotely bad or offensive, it doesn’t deserve the constant review bombing it’s been getting since before it was even publicly available, the effects are fine for a TV show (and better than what was shown in trailers) and the comedy works. I know most aren’t going to agree with everything I said above. Marvel projects are a highly volatile subject matter, whether you come away with a negative opinion of them or not, but writing this show off as “woke garbage” before it could even begin its nine-episode run is ridiculous and asinine.
"Bullet Train" should’ve been a gimme of a good time. An action-comedy with an insane cast following a bunch of assassins all unknowingly on the same mission within the confines of a passenger train? Sign me up!
Leading into this series’ release, I wasn’t excited. I actually think this was the least into a Marvel project I’ve been, based on the trailer and marketing. Those trailers really made it feel like it was trying too hard to be relatable to its targetted teen audience. The marketing just made it look like a cringey, boilerplate coming-of-age show with superpowers thrown in.
What a season of television.
Thor: Ragnarok is one of the MCU’s best entries and a great action-comedy. Just don’t ask Twitter. Thor: Love and Thunder, however, doesn’t live up to its predecessor.
Let's get this out of the way: "Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed" is the weakest episode of the season so far. It's not terrible, but it lacks the urgency shared by the other episodes of the season, and its slow pacing stands out. This episode clearly intended to set up the focal threads for the finale next week, but its foot-dragging can't be entirely forgiven, especially as it stands as the most lengthy episode of the season so far.
*Spoilers for The Boys season 3, episode 6 ahead.*
Season three of The Boys is moving at a breakneck pace through its first five episodes, but somehow nothing feels rushed — it all feels natural. While watching this week’s episode, I often thought “Well, that has to be where it ends, right?” Then, it would continue, giving me more and more of those episode-ending cliffhanger moments as it progressed.
It's always a long week waiting for a new episode of The Boys, and this week felt even longer due to episode three's exceptional cliffhanger and a (slightly) delayed release. Despite that, episode four, "Glorious Five Year Plan," made the wait feel worth it, delivering the best episode of the season so far. That's saying something when the season has been extremely strong up to this point.
Two years have passed since the series last graced our screens, meaning there’s been a massive rift in the superhero film sphere. The Boys occupies an area of the space that neither DC nor Marvel would touch with the world’s longest pole, a world filled to the brim with debauchery, ultra-violence, depraved sex, corporate pandering and government corruption. In other words, a realistic depiction of the United States. Thankfully, it’s back to show us our reality through a superhero lens, being both gloriously entertaining and disturbing, often at the same time.
When director Scott Derrickson left the tentatively titled Doctor Strange 2 in 2020, my hope for the sequel was mostly lost. Derrickson both directed and co-wrote the original Doctor Strange, and it was a passion project for him. The massive stage of the Marvel Cinematic Universe launched Derrickson into a whole new chapter of his career. Doctor Strange was his vision, and with the sequel announced to be more horror-centric, losing one of the best horror directors working today seemed like a death knell. Later that year, Sam Raimi came aboard.
Moon Knight is a disappointment.
