20 Tropes 'She Hulk: Attorney At Law' Flipped On Their Head
Disney+ recently released the last episode of She Hulk: Attorney At Law, also also known in some corners of the internet as Why Woman Have Show. And it was… not bad. It didn’t contribute to the destruction of Western civilization by hordes of pink-haired communist feminists and their pronoun gulags, so, you know, we got our hopes up for nothing. In fact, the show has the deeply average quality we’ve come to expect from the MCU TV output — although we have to say its riffing off of tropes was quite entertaining.
In this Pictofact, we take a look at Why Woman Mean to Me by focusing on its tropes: Those we spotted, those it subverted, those that drew a chuckle out of us. And considering our brain is rotting with tropes, this is no small feat. Moreover, everyone knows the show is one big meta-prank: a self-aware, fourth wall-smashing affair inception’ed in layers of other shows. This makes its use of tropes particularly interesting. At its most uninspired, they are just, like, “Yes, we acknowledge the existence of this trope,” but most other times they actually put a spin on it. That is fun, so let’s take a look at it. These are 20 tropes spotted and subverted in You Don’t Get It, Cracked, The Internet Grifters Say I Should Be Angry About This!
