Wandavision is legit.

Matt Shakman, one of the very best GoT directors, directed every episode. It's a lovingly-done pastiche of classic sitcoms (decidedly NOT a parody) and also has a slowly-unfolding mystery.

These clips will probably get taken down, but here are the themes from eps 2 and 3:



"Hunger is the purest sin"

This iz a show I enjoy, esp in its visual gags, but it makes my roommates cringe so it's become a loner watch.

Iím WFís roommate, apparently.  :yabbse-grin:

I checked the premiere after a frustrating Demonís Souls level and was shocked at the hollowness of the pastiche/the mystery. The ten minutes credits are hilarious, though.

Like...make a one hour special of this thing, no?

I'm watching this mostly for the theme songs I think

I watched the premiere of Falcon and the Winter Soldier a few weeks ago, and I just could not conjure the interest to continue. It bored me to tears.

I really miss Wandavision. Was the finale disappointing? Sure. But ultimately I put this in the same category as Westworld. It's imperfect but has a creative vitality that we can end up taking for granted.

Iím not watching, but it feels as if nobody else is watching, too, or maybe people got exhausted after Wandavision and its very noisy reception?

Episodes 2 and 3 of Falcon + TWS were all right, on par with the Netflix marvel shows at least. But the villain/antagonism iz near nonexistent. Works best when its a buddy show about Falcon + Bucky's disparaging ideas/ideals regarding Steve. Episode 4's finale caps off the penultimate hour with a mature beat - but nothing that's breaking ground.
