Yes, it's like people's expectations/hopes keep resetting every 30some minutes.
"Maybe the next episode will be the one where things finally get serious...."
Spoiler: it won't be. So just enjoy it for whatever it is.

It's very much a 30 minute comedy. It is not a film stretched and cut for television. Honestly, I think the more episodic it gets, the better it plays into its strengths.

This new episode was pretty fun. We get a little fight. We get a name drop of a evil marvel organization (and potential set up for the leader?). And we catch a glimpse of at least the organization behind the wrecking crew.

Intelligencia.

Comics wise it was a semi dark illuminati with the leader, modok, and others like them. I could see the MCU version being a potential branch of AIM or just the Leader.

Let's hope they actually go somewhere with his character, unlike Blonsky. Would suck to see the Leader become another quippy half-baked ego villain.

They have reported that The Leader (Samuel Sterns) will be the main villain for Captain America New World Order. I just wonder if this Intelligencia/Trying to nab some She Hulk blood is set up for whatever his plans are. (Gamma World? Just make a bunch of Hulked out monsters?) For those that don't remember the Hulk movie, Sterns was studying Bruces blood and mass produced a bunch of samples from the small sample Bruce sent him. He could be trying to get a hold of another sample to do it again.

Mrs. GG and I are trying to enjoy She-Hulk but so far just not really clicking with it. Mrs. GG said it reminded her too much of Bridget Jones. I want to watch it in order to keep up the world building of the MCU but it has been a struggle so far. Except for Wong. He was cool. More Wong please.

The more episodic nature of the story makes it feel like the weakest of the MCU series to me for sure, but I’m still enjoying it enough to keep tuning in.

This show is narratively all over the place. Episode 1 makes her out to be a #GirlBoss (I guess at least in her own mind?), but ever since then the show constantly brings her down. It isn't really fun or funny how the show seems to go out of its way to be mean to her. I want She-Hulk to be a great character for the MCU, but they are missing the mark so far.

It's a comedy that isn't funny. That remains its chief central problem.

There are laughs every now and again, but for something billed as a comedy it just isn't one.

The last episode was cringe humor, like a Ben Stiller movie. Not for everyone. (And I hope they vary up the humor some more.)

At least Wongers is consistently funny.

Oh, and the subplot with the other lawyers and the divorce case was funny.

Naturally. The one good guy in the show can't actually be good. That wouldn't fit the show at all.

You are forgetting both her current boss, who is at least neutral, and Pug. And Bruce. And her Dad. And Wong. And maybe Abomination?

You think her dad is a possible romantic interest?

Context. Those are good men (one neutral) in the show, not romantic interests.
This isn't a 'blar, men bad' show.

A fair few of the women have been bad, too, but mostly in the wedding party (and Titania).

However, it tells you something that the two breakout stars of the show are Wongers and Madisynn, neither of whom are really part of her world.

I think you saying that isn't dissimilar to the bride disregarding all of Jen's work and Hulk achievements to reduce her level of success to who she's dating.
