In a row?

Okay, some of those are nothing, and half of that is reaching.

BUT some of those are really fun and I love them. Especially the toaster thing. That's pretty cool.

Maybe I'm reaching now, but I definitely think TV and movies are incentivizing rewatches. Which is cool, I guess.

Wasn't the beeping Stark Industries bomb a callback to the first Iron Man?

I gave up on it during the first episode but gave it another shot and it's pretty good, if confusing, especially if you're not an expert on The Avengers.

For the audience, maybe, but not to Wanda.

I've seen a few reviewers rag on the episode for essentially recapping the first seven, but I thought it did a fantastic job of putting everything in context and focusing on the emotions of the characters and town. Olsen, Hahn, and Bettany crushed it.

Westview looks exactly like what a depressed, early white flight city in Jersey would today.

As they once again miss the point of the show. Recap episodes are also a common TV trope that was (apparently a bit too subtlety) incorporated in Wandavision.

I am firmly convinced that all reviewers need to STFU until the series is complete. It's like critiquing a movie after 15 minutes. And then again after another 15 minutes. And so on. Wandavision has obviously been, from the very first episode, a series that can only be judged in its entirety.

Shout-out to the writer of this week's episode, too. Knowing that the entire show was built around dealing with grief and that it came from real experiences with therapy helps ground it as much as a show about a witch in love with a dead robot can be.
 
2021-02-27 11:18:29 AM  
....oh. it's on every week. I just binge watched (I hate that expression but it's here to stay) the first seven. I thought they dropped whole seasons at a time like most streaming shows and seven was the season finale. I thought seven was an odd number, I mean it is an odd number but I meant for number of shows in a season. Cool.

Can we just make it illegal to have headlines on the internet that include the phrase "I am screaming" or "and I can't even" or anything like that?

Remember when people just used to enjoy watching things without freeze framing every single scene for "Easter eggs"?

So fake Pietro is a fake controlled by Agatha?  That's disappointing, I was hoping it was that version of Quicksilver because he's great.

I take it that both kids had magical powers or something and the mind stone just enhanced them?  Pietro was inexplicably kinda left out of that part.

I thought Wanda had stolen Vision's corpse but I guess not.

I Iove this show, but I was lost in this last episode.  I get the bombing backstory, I just don't grok the whole Agatha thing.

I just watched those movies and enjoyed Evan Peters in them. I also just came across this and thought it was hilarious.

Uh, what?  It's a 30 minute superhero TV show, not Schindler's List or Sophie's Choice.  Get ahold of yourself, woman.

It's a story about moving through the 5 stages of grief.  The writers just use a superhero setting to tell that story.

We've been rewatching the full MCU canon over the last few weeks (introducing our 10 year old to it), and we happened to hit Age of Ultron on Thursday night.  Getting Wanda's story from AoS and then seeing this episode the next day was an interesting experience.

I think we all agree with that, but the insane overexagerration by the author of "violently weeping" for 30 minutes while watching the show is eye-rolling and something a high schooler would write.

She's the only person in Westview who wasn't either there to start with or a SWORD agent sucked into the Hex. She came on her own to figure out what was happening, because Wanda was exhibiting a ridiculous amount of power, and was only ever playing along with the Westview illusion.

Her theory, after pulling Wanda into a whole theater of the mind deal, is that Wanda was a minor magical talent that would've gone nowhere with it, but then she got tweaked by the Mind Stone. Now she's a chaos magician who can create entire people out of nowhere and warp a sizable chunk of local reality around her little finger.

Internet/Twitter reacts too.

Nothing is a spoiler if you don't know who anyone is!
I've been watching/enjoying it fine enough, but the whole Agnes/Agatha reveal isn't really revealing if you don't know who Agatha is to begin with!
Like the aerospace engineer they teased at.
Then they reveal its some lady with a truck?

Oh, ok, maybe in the comics she was a big deal, but to me, you teased at someone but all I got out of it was a lady with a truck!

Did they though?  I got the impression that the woman she met with was given the plans from Monica, and wasn't actually the person that designed it.

Could be mistaken. I've only watched it the once.

Oh, I only watched it once too but she mentioned several times in a couple of episodes  "I'm going to meet my aerospace engineer friend" so then she said "we're here!" And a woman gave her the space truck!

Shrug.

And I would have said "Ah.  Shrug."

Well, I mean, Darcy went from being handcuffed to a chair to being an escape artist in chains when she got put into the hex so it stands to reason a delivery guy would be a delivery guy. If it's something natural the subject won't struggle as much under the spell.

Or a production crew that really groks their source material and knows how to make a show that appeals to both the general public and to the rabid fan base, unlike some other comic book movie house I could mention.

No, actually Darcy is an interesting character. She sort of grounds the show as a regular person among all the crazy shiat going on around her. She sort of is a stand in for the audience, a common trope in stories like this.

Rewatching Ep. 8 again, two things I noticed:

The future home of Wanda & Vision is on Sherwood Drive, a probable reference to Sherwood Schwartz.

The marquee of the Cornet theater reads:
TANNHAUSER GATE
PUT THE FUN 1N DYSFUNCTION

Before it is transmuted to:
now showing
'BIG RED' color
'KIDNAPPED' color
