She-Hulk: Attorney At Law has just wrapped up with an absolutely off the rails finale, though it seems not everyone watching was very happy with it.
However, the show has ended up as the lowest rated MCU TV show on IMDB and lags some way behind the rest of the pack.
She-Hulk: Attorney At Law currently has a 5.1 out of 10 rating on the site with over 140,000 people giving the superhero show a score.
The next lowest rated Marvel show is Ms Marvel at 6.2, while the best regarded show is Loki which is sitting pretty on a rating of 8.2.
It should be borne in mind that these ratings are from audiences rather than critics, meaning shows can be in danger of getting review bombed if certain groups of viewers take against it.
The ratings between critics and viewers can often vary wildly, especially if a bunch of people on the internet all get together and decide they're going to review bomb the show.
Over on site Metacritic, which aggregates the review scores of critics, the pack of MCU TV shows is much closer and suggests the really low ratings for She-Hulk are more to do with review bombing than anything else..
She-Hulk doesn't finish bottom of the pack this time, an aggregate score of 67 out of 100 bringing it in a point ahead of lowest rated Hawkeye and well behind top performer Ms Marvel on 78.
Viewers on the site only rated She-Hulk at 2.4 out of 10, while the only episode of the series with a viewer review score not in the red was the one with plenty of Daredevil in it.
It seems like the team behind She-Hulk knew this backlash was coming as they took inspiration from real life trolling to shape a villainous group trying to take Jennifer Walters down in the show.
They also had jokes directly taking aim at the more toxic parts of the fanbase which proved to be absolutely spot on despite the process starting about three years before the show was released.
Showrunner Jessica Gao joked that she threatened to walk off the production if she wasn't allowed to put a baseball cap onto the robot Kevin, while Feige suggested She-Hulk get into the writers room before meeting his robotic stand-in.
One thing that's really surprised people is that She-Hulk was played by a man in one scene where the show paid homage to the 70s Incredible Hulk TV show.
