    WandaVision (Marvel)



    This looks pretty interesting. I'd take this over Black Widow.

    I was doing that while walking my dog and imagined the idea of the villain Arcade trapping them somewhere, and they had to figure their way out.

    I suspect the whole season will be Wanda's doing. She's warping reality to bring back Vision somehow.

    BTW, one more week until the premiere! I'm very excited.

    It's the beginning of getting some kind of Marvel Studio's release every week for the next 50 weeks.

    Is this dumping all at once or taking a Mandalorian type of release?

    I was also picturing a villain like Arcade being at the helm of it all... but I think Spun's idea makes more sense.

    Weekly. Right up until The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in March 19, 2021. Which goes right up to May 7th Black Widdow, which will follow with Loki in May, 2021, which will go right into Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in July 4, 2021, which will roll into What If...? in Summer of 2021, which will likely roll into either Hawkeye 2021 or Ms. Marvel leading up until Eternals on November 5th, which will run until Spider-man 3 on Dec. 17, 2021.

    What a year.

    There's also a very strong possibility Black Widow will be a Disney+ release after Marvel Studios renegotiated the contacts with all film makers after the WB debacle.

    Brilliant on Disney+. I've been changing services here and there when I get caught up with what I want.

    I'll probably do the same with Disney+ since some of those show I don't care about. I mostly just want Mandalorian and Soul.

    This looks good.
    Blog!

    Now, here I go again, I see
    The crystal vision
    I keep my visions to myself
    It's only me, who wants to
    Wrap around your dreams and
    Have you any dreams you'd like to sell
    Dreams of loneliness

    I much enjoy the goofiness of this, especially the way the show still leans into their powers for the sitcom homage plotlines. And Olsen is just radiant here, pure star charisma.

    Didn't care for ep2 as much as 1.
    When I was a young boy
    My father took me into the city
    To see a marching band
    He said, "Son, when you grow up
    Would you be the savior of the broken
    The beaten and the damned?"

    Yeh I'd imagine these first two episodes are to get the audience to ask "what?" and the stinger at the end of episode 2 is there to get us to ask "ok where are they going with this?"

    They are obviously trying to introduce Sword and/or AIM.

    Its a cute, harmless show. The casting is great, with Kathryn Hanh stealing every moment.

    yeh it was the same one on the notepad at the very end of episode one. It's S.W.O.R.D, which of course was teased at the end of Captain Marvel.

    Unsure whether the faux-commercials hold clues, but the watch in Ep2 has a Hydra symbol on its face.

    This might turn into something, but three episodes in, this is Star Wars Holiday Special level bad.

    Bruv... the laugh track? This is shit. I still see how it may turn dark cool storyline, but right now its crap imo.

    It may be from the 70s-era style that this one parodies/homages to, but the ep doesn't feel as charming a sitcom throwback as the previous two, with a more stop-start rhythm. Olsen is still having quite a showcase though, and Dottie's husband's "Oh thank god" after the blackout does get to me.

    Cute again, but hollow 3rd episode. About 10 minutes of show stretched out over 20ish.

    agree with the criticisms.

    i thought the lame sitcom schtick would last for maybe one episode before they jumped into the full story but ... nope. they burned ~90 minutes of screentime and haven't told the audience any more than we learned from the 2 minute preview trailer a few months ago.

    The two leads aren't comedic actors and they're floundering. you can see the wheels turning and hear the gears grinding; they're both too aware of the gag. hahn is the standout, which isn't too surprising because she actually has experience in comedy and knows how to punch up bad material. all the energy in the show comes from her and she isn't on screen long enough to carry it.

    who thought this was a good idea? they're doing like this weak ass sherman-schwartz-style sitcom stuff but the shows they're parodying were, for the most part, waaaaay better. like, if you pilfer dick van dyke's sets then you better up your game --- and not force the audience to sit through over an hour of constant laugh tracks.

    the teases at the end of each episode are also bad, because again they don't tell the audience anything new.

    here's hoping baby yoda pops up for a cameo.
