Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is one heck of a Hulk SMASH! With a different feel than other Disney+ Marvel series, is She-Hulk kid-friendly? I’m breaking down all of the thematic elements, including it’s TV-14 rating, in my She-Hulk Parents Guide and review. As always, no spoilers.
She-Hulk Parents Guide + Review
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is the latest Marvel series to smash into the Disney+ streaming platform. I received early access to the first four episodes, which is what this review is based off of.
Tatiana Maslany plays the series protagonist, Jennifer Walters, who also happens to be Bruce Banner’s cousin. Jennifer becomes a Hulk, and Bruce teaches her everything he knows. Evidently, no two Hulks are the same. Jennifer consciously remembers what she does in her Hulk state.
The Marvel cameos and Easter Eggs are a-plenty. You’ll want to keep your eyes peeled to be sure you won’t miss any!
Is She-Hulk kid-friendly? Here’s your Parents Guide:
She-Hulk fits into a whole to different genre than other Marvel series. It’s more-so comedy than drama. And while there is some action, it certainly doesn’t compare to others like Hawkeye and Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
With that being said, is She-Hulk okay for our littlest Avenger’s? She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has an MPAA rating of TV-14 for mature themes, violence, and language. Each episode is around 30 minutes. Here’s what parents need to know before watching She-Hulk with their kids.
Hulk’s are obviously a bit on the violent side. Where do you think they came up with the phrase “Hulk Smash?!” Expect to see fighting scenes and destruction.
Wow. Jennifer Walters has quite the mouth. There is a lot of language in She-Hulk. Certainly more than my liking for what I was hoping for a family friendly series. However, with that TV-14 rating, it’s definitely on par. Expect to hear words: sucks, bullsh!t, Hell, sexy, thirst trap, d!ck, “what the fu…”, and seeing the middle finger. Yikes.
There is a whole lot of drinking in She-Hulk. There are bar scenes and references to getting drunk. While sexual acts are not shown, they are implied. There is also mention of specific Avengers being virgins.
Unfortunately, She-Hulk is not intended for the younger audience. If you are comfortable with the above mentioned themes, then I’d strongly suggest screening the episodes beforehand. She-Hulk very much earned its TV-14 rating.
Although She-Hulk: Attorney at Law might not be family friendly, that’s not to say it’s not an enjoyable watch. It’s much lighter than other Marvel series, and at only 30 minutes per episode, it’s a quick binge (once all episodes are released).
She-Hulk brings us lots-of-laughs. Jennifer Walters is a great addition to the MCU.
Above all, She-Hulk is a major dose of female empowerment. And that’s something I can get behind. Case closed.
Jennifer Walters navigates the complicated life of a single, 30-something attorney who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered Hulk.
