Michael J Faux: We have entered the age of homework television.


That's been a part of the MCU from the beginning.

I can't go swimming right now. I'm the Scarlet Witch.

It's been that way since comics started doing long story telling.

Yes AND the people who like long storytelling also like homework*, so I don't see the problem.

*Of course it has to be the right kind of homework, but you get the gist.

I'm not even sure it bothers me that much; just think it's an interesting direction things are going in that has some pitfalls when it comes to telling a cohesive story. Mandalorian, for instance, got a free pass on some sloppy in-show explanations/descriptions/backstories (Rosario Dawson's character, for instance) because a lot of its audience happened to have seen an old cartoon series. There's nothing WRONG with it; I just think there is a more impressive degree of difficulty in presenting all the relevant information in one package. I also may just be cynical about where the line falls between fan engagement and free marketing for spin-offs (not the case in the Scarlet Witch thing, but I'm sure you know what I mean).

Nah man. Comics started out as collections of newspaper comic strips. Hence the name "comic books". Then turned into stories with a more serious tone.

There were returning characters from issue to issue but their stories were mostly episodic. Easy to follow along without starting with the initial book.

Though things have gotten out of hand with cross over events, for sure.
Outside of a few movies, the MCU is just one major cross over event.

/not complaining btw
//enjoying all the references and foreshadowing
