Ahem. I'm sorry you all had to see that. I've had that in my system for a while. Now that's enough complaining about Doctor Who.
But in all seriousness, this episode was surprisingly good. Why is it that the Hulk gets the good episodes? After this and "Hulked Out Heroes," I'm starting to think that Hulk should get his own series.
|I take it back!|
Black Widow doesn't appear in this episode. At all. Not even for a second.
|This Review now has infinitely more Black Widow than the episode.|
Seriously, absolutely golden. All the characters get their most annoying traits downplayed, and this episode acts as an interesting examination of a character usually associated with mindlessness. I can honestly say, with no hyperbole, that Hulk's friendship with Glorian was a better idea than anything they did with the character in Avengers: EMH. And if you've read any other post on my blog, you know that I don't make that claim lightly. And his bowling outings with the Thing are a nice touch, as well. The humanization of the Hulk is something that rarely happens without involving Bruce Banner, but this episode pulled it off. Seriously, for a show that has less character development than your average porno, this examination of Hulk's personal life is both surprising and absolutely welcomed.
Other than that, I have little to say about this episode. I mean, what else is there to say? It's a good episode that does a good job fleshing out its focus character, and it tells an interesting story with an intriguing mystery. This episode is a far cry from what I expected after a few of the earlier, lackluster episodes.
But alas, I believe we may have reached the peak and can only go down from here. How far down? We'll find out next time. But I guarantee it won't be worse than "Avengers: Impossible." See you then.
