    I really liked that break with Hahn where she asks to do another take. So good.

    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?"

    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

    Second episode, even better.

    This weird limbo world that they're in may be my favorite thing about the MCU. I like that I have no idea where this is going and that Olsen/Bettany have tremendous chemistry while doing it.

    Yeh that's why I don't understand the hate. It's so 'right field' from what the MCU has previously done that it's almost intoxicating.

    There is no "hate", just a bunch of entitled people with no patience. If you can't stand two short episodes of TV references that will definitely lead somewhere pretty soon, I don't know what to tell you.

    I liked the first 2. Ep3 started to grate on me (I hate laugh tracks, even used ironically). But ep4 got me back in.

    Edit: I was so irritated at ep3 I had to stop half way through lol.

    Actually loved episode 3 on my end. The reality is unavoidable as the "tv age" gets closer and closer to reality.

    *oops* I never actually saw Age of Ultron that was the start of these two characters. Watching some clips afterwards, it's funny seeing how much more interesting each character is now compared to what they were at the beginning of the MCU.

    Is there a reason she had an accent at the start of it all, or an explanation of how it got dropped btw?

    It fades a bit as the MCU goes on. This show does address it in a somewhat creative and subtle way in Ep5.

    I liked the first episode. The 50s sitcom stuff made me laugh a bit. This feels weird enough to keep me hooked.

    OH, DAMN Episode 4.

    I mean, in a way, it's the saddest thing to see this alternate world that Wanda has created for herself, knowing what's actually out there.

    I can't imagine the other tv series are going to be this creative.

    I think it was episode 3 where we actually got a look at dead vision. That was spooky and just shows how much she's grieving.

    All caught up, and I read through the entire thread.

    Again, I'm absolutely loving everything about this show. I was picking it up at the talent show, but this is one of the better approaches to not only grief, but also, "What could've been" that I can think of. Olson is absolutely nailing it by enjoying her imagined-created world, but can't stop the reality that's coming.

    I'm glad that the first and second episode were almost entirely unaffected and we got to see the created world without mostly a blip.

    This is likely going to only be a one season approach, so I'll enjoy it while I can. It wouldn't surprise me if they throw in Magneto at the end and that becomes the highlight for everyone...

    And here's to hoping for a 90's-Seinfeld approach next week with Vision as Kramer.

    Tbh that's already waaaaay too imaginative for "Wandavision."

    The episodes aren't quite based on old shows. It's more like they're sticking to a specific formula -- family based sitcoms -- and borrowing production elements from them and literally nothing else. Not the characters, not specific dialogue or scenes, not any one scenario.

    Eg: The first episode had nothing to do with "Dick Van Dyke" outside the sets. Likewise the "Brady Bunch" and "Family Ties" stuff. None of the characters or situations from those old shows appeared in a recognizable form. (Well, maybe "Bewitched," but only in the broadest sense.) So even if they riffed on "Seinfeld's" setting, Kramer wouldn't appear because he would be too specific a reference.

    They won't do "Seinfeld," though, because it wasn't a family sitcom. There's no way to plug Vision and Wanda into that show's format.

    What's weird is that Disney owns ABC television, and therefore presumably the rights of a shit ton of old sitcoms. They could have done a line by line, shot for shot remake of "Donna Reed" or "Bewitched" or "Three's Company" or "Happy Days" and that would have been vastly more interesting than what they're actually doing.

    They could have made genuinely weird pop art out of this ... but for some reason chose to play it safe and do the most anodyne thing possible.

    Not sure what 90s family shows come to mind that wasn't already done last episode.

    Family Matters, Full House, they won't touch Cosby, Fresh Prince of Bell Air come to mind.

    Friends if they are really ballsy.

    "Fresh Prince" was NBC. Likely Disney won't go near it either.

    "Family Matters" was ABC, but I don't think they will borrow from a well known black family sitcom and re-populate it almost exclusively with white actors, not in 2021.

    My bet is "Full House," because this show loves the meta joke.

    But I also think that's asking the wrong question, because the meta joke and show-within-a-show is the least interesting part of this.

    I want to know how and if they're gonna walk back making Wanda a major villain, outside a few lines of throwaway dialogue.

    ETA: Also if they're gonna retcon Vision back to the living.

    Didn't they touch Full House already? That opening title sequence in the last episode was almost 1/1 Full House.

    No it wasn't. That was 100% Family Ties. (80s)

    I watched a whole bunch of Family Ties when I was a kid, and completely forgot pretty much everything about it. Yeah, they did the portrait thing, but the picnic on the grass in the end? I'm kinda thinking they did both, and will skip to something completely 90s next.

    Just popping in to say that while Uncle Phil justifiably got a lot of praise, I always feel sad that Carl Winslow is never really mentioned in the same breath. I watched way more FM than Fresh Prince, and Carl was like a second father figure to me almost. I love him so much. Even if Jaleel White got all the ink and chatter, I always enjoyed watching Carl/RVJ work more.
