Wandavision - Is anyone watching?
« on: January 30, 2021, 10:07:27 AM »
Due to Covid.. Black Widow was moved to 2021... at least at this time.  So now we have Wandavision... and it looks very interesting.  I am thinking of paying for a year of Disney+ to check this out.

Who is watching?   What are your thoughts? 

WandaVision returns with a wallop to the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper - tv.avclub.com

It definitely looks pretty cool.   Thoughts? Comments?  Post it up

I've seen the first two and about 9 minutes of the third one. It's interesting enough to keep watching but I'm not sold yet. I could stop watching it easily but I do want to see where they take it.

The show pays a nice homage to the sitcom tropes of yesteryear, yet you can see glimpses of that reality cracking and having an Avengers MCU underneath.  So far it has been good enough to watch the first few episodes.

However, if you are considering paying for a year of Disney Plus.. WHY HAVEn't you done that for the Mandolorian?  Besides, the rest of the Avengers movies, the Star Wars movies, Star Wars: Clone Wars, and Star Wars Rebels are all on Disney plus.  You know, they do have Frozen and Frozen II too.  :P

@Grindspine LOL... yes... yes... I know.  I have a thing about not buying other monthly services right now (IE not paying for TV and lots of other things). 

@targetrasp you're right... and that's exactly what we want to start watching.  And now it's hard to say no with Wandavision.  I would like to get in before the price hike... and may not renew.  But we will see.

Been watching it and it's superb. It started out slow but has gotten much better. Can't wait to see how it all connects to the next phase.

Which is rumored to have...

Spoiler: ShowHide
The X-Men. Although, with Evan Peters showing up, it kind of makes it obvious.


I'm really happy to have some proper MCU content back.

@CreepinDeth you may have encouraged me to finish it out, I really quit after 2 or 3 episodes deep.

@CreepinDeth dangit... we are going to pay for Disney+ for a bit... you guys and your recommendations... just take my money.

@targetrasp yeah... the initial reviews had me a bit worried.  Now I cannot wait to dive in.

The Falcon and Winter Soldier show airs a little after this, so there will be plenty of content on Disney+. Then there's the Loki show, which I think is at the end of this year.

I like the Wandavision series. It is well put together, neat quality package, unlike the Mandolorian which just doesn't jell with me for some reason. I wished they had the same people working on the Mandolorian. Wandavision is MARVEL. And it has that feel to it.

This last episode just dropped a giant hint as to what will be the catalyst for the next set of phases, like the infinity stones prior.

All of the subtle hints throughout every episode makes this a fun watch.

I have jumped to so many different conclusions with every episode. My perspective has been all over the map. The last episode was like, "boom." You're right it is so much fun to watch.

Just one more episode left!!

I started watching again from the beginning and the first two episodes hit differently this time around now that things are more fleshed out.

Although, now I don't think it's introducing what I thought it was going to. Now it looks like it could be...

Spoiler: ShowHide
The Fantastic Four

These past two episodes really made me reconsider what I thought was going to happen. The writers of this series is doing a magnificent job, in my opinion.

Yes this last episode was, WOW for me, and awesome. I am so wondering how this is going to go. How will they intertwine the comic book storyline into this? Or have a slight different take like they have creatively done with the rest of the MCU? I am going with the later. I am also wondering how this will impact the next Avengers movie.

@CreepinDeth - how did you come up with what's in your spoiler tag?  I just caught up on all the episodes as of Friday.

This series has had so many twists in it now... it's pretty crazy. I'm not 100% certain where it is going after that last episode lol.  So... can't wait until the next one comes out.   I'm hoping they have a few seasons of this.  Not sure how long this one will last.

@BLUEVOODU because the Fantastic Four were involved in the comics.

minor comic spoilers...

Spoiler: ShowHide
Agatha has a connection with FF and Wanda in the comics. Keeping the comic info low since I don't want to completely spoil everything in the case it doesn't happens. Although, if it does happen, I expect it to be not in your face with the way the story is unfolding. It's completely Wanda's story and it should stay that way.
