    I didn't really care for the first episode much. The others have had a better framework, I just wish they actually had any meat on the bones.
    no its more like company advertised bagged candy in flavors that were appealing to me, I ate first candy and it was pretty good, but then some of the candies in a bag are misshapen and half melted, wrappers are stuck to some of them so badly you cannot completely separate candy from wrapper and every once in a while, you pull out a candy that is stale.

    maybe some people, but not all of us. you CAN criticize candy on merits applicable to candy, just because its candy doesn't mean its flaws are excusable or cannot be pointed out. a half melted candy with a wrapper stack to it, might still taste just as sweet, but those wrapper pieces you end up spitting out are STILL annoying.


    edited to add... these is a skip credits button on Disney (at least browser version, one of these days I'll actualy watch something on my TV, but today is not that day) and it takes you to mid or post credits scene. its not exactly clear that this is what it does... but I clicked cause I was curious and ... there it was.

    I'm just saying if we're agreeing that comedy is subjective... it's better to avoid terms like "do it better"


    Some of it might just be the browser, I could swear there was a "skip intro" option before when I had D+, but it's been a while. (I just get it every now and then for a month and watch all the stuff I missed... and they had a $1.99 deal!)
    Well, there's definitely a "Skip Intro" option on my TV's version of the D+ app. But yeah, it might not be on the browsers veersion.



    No, they don't, but they should. And yeah I guess it's silly to even put them in if you'll let people skip to them, but I just skim through to find them so I don't know what they gain other than a "tradition" that's not that old.
    Post Credits scenes had been around for quite some time before Marvel started making them a part of the viewing experience. They first started showing up in the 60's.

    The first one I remember ever seeing was at the end of the Masters of the Universe Movie way back in '87.

    Isms bore me. I think they are only brought by people who seek to marginalize the potential of each ism to provide something meaningful. Name it, Capitalism, Socialism, even Communism-- all contain something of merit towards structuring a society. The biggest flaw in human history has been the need to take the worst of a system along with the best. It doesn't have to be all of one and none of another.

    The "next episode" thing is always mistimed too, but I am pretty sure that was always a thing. Just easier to exit and select the next episode.

    .
    I thinkit's more like you pulled out like a Strawberry flavoured candy first, thought it was pretty good...but the next flavour was black licorice or somethng like that and you really didn't like that. That is to say...there isn't anything actually wrong with the candy...there's just some flavours in there that you like more than others.

    I remember having that issue when D+ first launched... but I haven't seen it happen much since. Typically doesn't bother me much as long as they aren't cutting off the end of the episode.

    I mean, I think most of us can agree that the mediocre CGI contributed to budget which lead to shorter episodes?

    nyah, I'm not critiquing subjective preference flavors here. my issues with writing on she hulk are pretty tangible and not necessarily of the "just not my preference variety" the only subjective thing here is whether those same issues bother you to the same degree as they bother me.


    so I reiterate. just because its candy, doesn't mean one is obligated to just accept production quality issues. we absolutely CAN discuss them. and maybe they don't bother you to the same degree and that's fine. there are plenty of things that I'm willing to wave off because they don't bother me enough to throw me out of the narrative.

    and how we interpret certain writing choices might also be subjective (as long as we are using accurate quotes or to go with candy analogy, I may think that licorice doesn't taste like licorice to me, but I can't claim that the label says something other then licorice), but this show is far from flawless and it being equivalent of candy does NOT change that.

    The episodes are as long as they are supposed to be...that's why there are 9 episodes instead of the usual 6. The episodes are closer to the runtime of Sitcoms.

    It has shorter episodes because its meant to be a sitcom, hence shorter and more episodes.

    Cannot help but enjoy how people take great length at breaking themselves and making superficial analogies and metaphores to just state their dislike over the show.

    She Hulk isn't even a candy. Candy has some uses and is sweet. She Hulk was brewed in a lab under the guise of a sit com that highlights the worst of marvel while offering none of the redeeming factors or light hearted fun that made it such a hit in the first place. And uses tired tropes combined with a dash of sexism and a fruity injection of talking down to the audience with poorly utilised 4th wall references that only serve to break immersion.

    I wonder which youtubers I stole that off

    Sorry you don't like She-Hulk as a property, then. Why are you still here? The show's about as perfect a translation as you could hope for of Dan Slott's run from 2004, which is widely considered one of her best runs. If you don't like the 4th wall breaks and talking to the audience, then you weren't ever going to like this, because that's a key element to She-Hulk.

    Half of the complaints that get leveled at this show are like saying you don't like the new Batman because it's so dark and broody and gothic, or that you don't like the X-men because mutation doesn't work like that in the real world. Like, that's the concept, if you don't like it, fine, but that's not actually a criticism. It's just a statement of personal preference.

    And when it's just your personal preference, that brings us back to asking why you're even here. I don't like sports, so I don't hate-watch sports and then go shitpost the Sports forum to try and ruin everything for people who DO like sports. It's a personal preference, and I can recognize that pissing in people's wheaties is just a personal character flaw. So why are you here, pissing in our wheaties, based solely on your subjective personal preferences?

    I mean, I'm posting here because I enjoy the show and discussing it. It's folks like yourself who're so "worked up" you've got to come in here to try and ruin it for everyone else for some reason.

    You don't have an argument. You're just pissing in people's Wheaties.

    You have a fascinating definition of "everyone", I'm going to borrow that definition for the moment.

    "Everyone" thinks you're making a ridiculous claim.

    can't help but be amused by your continued bending over backwards to stretch things to fit the narrative you want to see, not the one thats actualy there.

    here's a clear statement for you

    I. LIKE. THE SHOW. I ENJOY IT.

    you can like something and still critique it! novel idea, I know in our current environment of media illiteracy.

    Well, either you stole some youtubers ignorant opinion or you're just stating your own ignorant opinion.

    They are clearly just trolling. They aren't even hiding their trolling like others in this topic tried to do. Just ignore them and move on.

    I really wish people stop twisting things like this. It drives me nuts.

    You get them doing it all ways. If you argue against them, you must love the show. If you critique the show at all, you must dislike the show. There is absolutely no room for anything else.

    Right now, I can't say where I personally stand on She-hulk. There are things I like, and things I don't. (The humor tends to be hit or miss with me. I know there are always stupid jokes, but some of the jokes I just go okay, that was a little much.)

    Based on the opinion, I am wondering if they even watched the MCU at all. Because She-hulk is pretty standard fare for the MCU as a whole since Phase 1.

    I mean in Iron man, Tony literally makes a MySpace joke, which was written as Facebook among college kids was on the rise.

    Okay, then.

    As it was established, you must say only good things here about She-Shrek, so I will.
    So, the 5th episode.
    Things I liked:
    1. All the jokes were real funny, especially that one and this one.
    2. The character of Titania finally had a major spotlight and received a solid development and build, now we know a lot about her, and she's very interesting.
    3. The court scenes were fun and interesting, the whole trademark case was interesting
    4. The modellier guy was gorgeous, rupaul levels of gorgeous.
    5. Jen's dates, such a funny bunch
    6. Bald date guy not being a dick
    7. Non-racist, politically correct jokes about asian guy and asian production being cheap carbon copies, I mean - Avongers? What's not to like?

    Eagerly awaiting next episode.

    good god, dude, you continue to not only miss the point but shove it into your narrative regardless of whether it fits or not.

    no it has NOT been established you cannot say anything negative about the show. it has been established that you do not get to lie or twist words from other people when you express negative opinions about the show. I have literally expressed multiple negative opinions about this show and not everyone agrees with those opinions and yet somehow I do not feel attacked by people who do not share my negative opinions ... except by you and people LIKE you.

    I'm about 50/50 on whether you are being sarcastic or genuine in your "points" so until you clarify, I'm not going to respond to them. and I do not give a fuck about yet another youtuber who decides to pull shit out of their ass to make this fit into their narrative they have already established, judging by their thumbnail.
