That makes sense, as it was certainly my favorite. I haven't really disliked any of the other ones, but I could see why they weren't (as) popular.

WandaVision.
-It was fun, but it was also a slow burn that played a lot with it's format. Nothing really happened until episode 3 or 4.

Falcon and Winter Soldier.
-Fun buddy team up series, but we all knew it was ending with Sam holding the shield. It had some great themes it played around with, but there was also a good deal of fan service.

What If?
-I only got a few episodes in before I was bored, and realized it wouldn't play into any MCU continuity in any meaningful way, then abandoned it.

Hawkeye.
-It was fun, but they could have made that series movie-length and nothing of any real value would have been lost.

Moon Knight.
-I was really hoping for this to be way more than it was. I found myself getting bored watching this one more than any other Disney+/MCU show.

He was (probably still is) the most popular established character, so I can't say this is a shock. Nor was it a shock to them given they announced the 2nd season in the credits of the last episode

The slight upset is that of the newish Marvel stuff from other platforms they've added, Agents of SHIELD was the most popular. At least according to their trending section

Moon Knight - so boring I slept through an entire episode, didn't feel like trying again, moved on to the next and felt like I'd missed nothing.

Go watch the rest of the episodes.  Some of the Dr. Strange themes played into Multiverse of Madness.  Also, it's super cool to see what Howard the Duck does when he gets all the Infinity Stones.

"What If" is canon-ish, which is frankly what everything they've put out has become with all the multi-verse stuff. Well, maybe not the Reb Brown Captain America movies

The purpose of the What If? show was basically the same as the What If? comic - a place where writers can just play and have fun with short, self-contained stories that they don't need to worry about any consequences from for the cannon universe. To go nuts with some silly idea, and just have fun with it. That's what I loved about the comics, and I ended up liking the cartoon series a lot for the same reason. They can do something silly, stupid, crazy, or just plain neat and not have to worry about how it affects the future of that character moving forward.

I've liked all the MCU shows so far to varying degrees. I loved Loki, Wandavision, Falcon & WS, What If?, and Moon Knight - and all for different reasons. Hawkeye was fun... but I thought it was the weakest of the shows so far. That said, I think Hawkeye came out RIGHT when it was needed, just as a bit of a palette cleanser. The stakes for the Hawkeye show were much, much lower - which was needed at the time - and I appreciated the "street-level" story as a nice break between crisis's with world or universe harming implications. So it was the weakest, but I still enjoyed the watch.

The interaction between Kate Bishop and Yelena was the best part of all the Marvel series so far, if the Hawkeye show leads to a buddy movie with the two of them it will be worth it.

Yelena confronting Kate in her busted up apartment was the highlight of the series for me too. I forgave Florence for her awful accent, it was way too good of a scene to get hung up on something relatively minor like that.

Don't get me wrong, I think it was the weakest of the MCU shows so far but I still enjoyed it, and it definitely had its moments. And any MCU movie or show which doesn't end with a fight in front of a giant blue sky beam automatically gets +1 from me.

Why is Loki getting a second season? Because they pretty much left it open with a giant cliffhanger.  The rest don't really work for second seasons...

What If? could get a second season, but I wouldn't doubt it unless they need to pad out a phase.

WandaVision got its sequel in Multiverse of Madness.

Hawkeye seems more a launching point for a potential spinoff featuring Kate. If there's anything it'll be about Kate and Yelena and be called something completely different.

Falcon and the Winter Soldier felt like more of a side story to help set up things to come.

Moon Knight... it left questions unanswered, but was wrapped up in a manner that doesn't necessitate sequels and, honestly, introduces a lot of questions about the mechanics of the MCU, and given I didn't catch any direct connections to anything in the MCU (except maybe Black Panther's spirit realm) so it seems like it'll be treated more akin to a multiverse entry than primary MCU canon.

I gotta rewatch Moon Knight.

We have been watching it together as a family but my wife has had a lot of side stuff going on so we'd go weeks between episodes.

So I come back to it and I'm like "wait. What the f*ck happened?"

The slight upset is that of the newish Marvel stuff from other platforms they've added, Agents of SHIELD was the most popular. At least according to their trending section


Agents of SHIELD started off pretty mediocre, had a great arc in the midst of Winter Soldier, started to bore me again with some painfully dragged out "inhumans" storylines, then unexpectedly became excellent.

I had dropped the show, but my family was still watching and insisted I get caught up so I could see season 4, which they said was good. They weren't lying. The Ghost Rider, LMD, and virtual reality arcs were all fantastic. (The last stretch of season 3 was quite good, too.) And from there, the show was quality the rest of the way. A little bit of the future stuff dragged, but not for long.

I haven't seen many shows as effectively right their ship as Agents of SHIELD did. For me, it went from a pass to me being a big fan.

AOS was like a rollercoaster for me and the wife. We started off excited, got bored, got excited again, got bored again.

AOS had some good plotlines, IMHO its weakness was the seasons were too long for the storylines they had. They were mostly 22 episode seasons, with enough plot going on for 11 episodes. With shorter seasons the show would have worked a lot better, or if they just hadn't dragged out their one or two plotlines the whole 22 episodes, and wrapped each plot up in a couple episodes instead before moving on to the next plot.

Yeah, those long network TV seasons did them no favors. That's why it improved in later seasons. They switched to "pods," or multiple shorter arcs within a season, and it really helped them cut out the filler. Even the few dead spots they had in later seasons didn't last nearly as long as in the first three.

A fan edited the first season into three "movies," which is a good way to revisit them without slogging through the whole thing. Wish they'd have done the same with seasons 2 and 3. I wouldn't mind breezing through the stories again, but not at full length. They were obnoxiously slow.

There were Lego minifigs for What If and one of them spoiled an episode from Season 2. I wont share here but I'm looking forward to it.

What If?.. is pretty much the only series of the group has infinite season potential based purely on the nature of the show alone. So long as they have ideas, they can keep churn it out in perpetuity.

That makes sense, as it was certainly my favorite. I haven't really disliked any of the other ones, but I could see why they weren't (as) popular.

Loki was awesome and the music was suspenseful. Although they never explained how he reversed time in episode 3 with the falling building, did they?

WandaVision.

-It was fun, but it was also a slow burn that played a lot with it's format. Nothing really happened until episode 3 or 4.


Exactly. I started on episode 3 or 4, finished the series and then rewatched from the beginning.

Falcon and Winter Soldier.
-Fun buddy team up series, but we all knew it was ending with Sam holding the shield. It had some great themes it played around with, but there was also a good deal of fan service.


Agreed. It felt ... neutered? I know it was originally about a pandemic, then a real pandemic happened and it was reshot. The best part to me was recognizing Georgia's Sweet Water State Park Mill Ruins where the terrorists plotted. The series felt like a race to the end.

What If?
-I only got a few episodes in before I was bored, and realized it wouldn't play into any MCU continuity in any meaningful way, then abandoned it.


Oooooh, this series is the closest to Stan Lee's original voice as it gets! I have found memories of reading Stan Lee's Letterbox sections in I think the What If ... Series. It was all about imagination and the possibilities. This seemingly disconnected series all ties together at the end. Please rewatch. Excelsior!


Hawkeye.
-It was fun, but they could have made that series movie-length and nothing of any real value would have been lost.


Agreed. It was fun and felt real. Hawkeyes actor had real, heartbreaking motives. He was a real person who had to get home for Christmas and couldn't let his past hurt an "innocent" girl. It should've been a movie.

Moon Knight.
-I was really hoping for this to be way more than it was. I found myself getting bored watching this one more than any other Disney+/MCU show.


Boring. Watched one episode. And it's a damn shame, too, because all that Egyptian shiat really gets me going. I love love love the renditions of the old gods, but I studied psychology and watching portrayals of mental health patients with super powers is like a mechanic watching pimp my ride. All I see is a mess.
 
2022-05-19 6:23:00 PM  
Also it is probably the most/only rewatchable series. WandaVision was creative, Falcon and the Snowman told their story, What If you would rewatch the episodes you liked, Hawkeye also told its story. No idea of Moon Knight. But Loki has things to catch on rewatch and is enjoyable a second time, unlike say Falcon.

Go watch the rest of the episodes.  Some of the Dr. Strange themes played into Multiverse of Madness.  Also, it's super cool to see what Howard the Duck does when he gets all the Infinity Stones.

I had dropped the show, but my family was still watching and insisted I get caught up so I could see season 4, which they said was good. They weren't lying. The Ghost Rider, LMD, and virtual reality arcs were all fantastic. (The last stretch of season 3 was quite good, too.) And from there, the show was quality the rest of the way. A little bit of the future stuff dragged, but not for long.

I haven't seen many shows as effectively right their ship as Agents of SHIELD did. For me, it went from a pass to me being a big fan.


The most fun is the episode where some of the team is stuck in the 1980s and they have to fight evil robots that have the same design as the ones from Chopping Mall.

I am not making this up.

bighairyguy: AnotherBluesStringer: What If?
-I only got a few episodes in before I was bored, and realized it wouldn't play into any MCU continuity in any meaningful way, then abandoned it.

Go watch the rest of the episodes.  Some of the Dr. Strange themes played into Multiverse of Madness.  Also, it's super cool to see what Howard the Duck does when he gets all the Infinity Stones.


Also a variant of a major character from What If? shows up in the Multiverse of Madness.

Two Tea Leonis at the same time?


I never thought I'd see that much full-frontal in a Marvel cartoon.

browneye: AnotherBluesStringer: That makes sense, as it was certainly my favorite. I haven't really disliked any of the other ones, but I could see why they weren't (as) popular.

WandaVision.
-It was fun, but it was also a slow burn that played a lot with it's format. Nothing really happened until episode 3 or 4.

Falcon and Winter Soldier.
-Fun buddy team up series, but we all knew it was ending with Sam holding the shield. It had some great themes it played around with, but there was also a good deal of fan service.

What If?
-I only got a few episodes in before I was bored, and realized it wouldn't play into any MCU continuity in any meaningful way, then abandoned it.

Hawkeye.
-It was fun, but they could have made that series movie-length and nothing of any real value would have been lost.

Moon Knight.
-I was really hoping for this to be way more than it was. I found myself getting bored watching this one more than any other Disney+/MCU show.

The only one I haven't watched is What If? It's animated and didn't seem to be canon so I don't get what was the point in creating it in the first place.


The same reason they created the What If? comic, to tell some fun non-continuity stories.

Tom Hiddleston Is a delight, but the show is so convoluted and vapid.

Why was it most viewed?

Thirsty, thirsty fangirls.

I guarantee you I didn't watch for the plot.

Dude. That wasn't Howard the Duck. it was Squirrel Girl.

Cthulhu Theory: Why is Loki getting a second season? Because they pretty much left it open with a giant cliffhanger.  The rest don't really work for second seasons...

What If? could get a second season, but I wouldn't doubt it unless they need to pad out a phase.

WandaVision got its sequel in Multiverse of Madness.

Hawkeye seems more a launching point for a potential spinoff featuring Kate. If there's anything it'll be about Kate and Yelena and be called something completely different.

Falcon and the Winter Soldier felt like more of a side story to help set up things to come.

Moon Knight... it left questions unanswered, but was wrapped up in a manner that doesn't necessitate sequels and, honestly, introduces a lot of questions about the mechanics of the MCU, and given I didn't catch any direct connections to anything in the MCU (except maybe Black Panther's spirit realm) so it seems like it'll be treated more akin to a multiverse entry than primary MCU canon.


I think they are all setting up a new slate of Avengers or Avengers-like team up with Yelena, Kate, Moon Knight, Falcon, Ms. Marvel, Shang-Chi, America Chavez to deal with Kang and the fallout from his actions.

The only one I haven't watched is What If? It's animated and didn't seem to be canon so I don't get what was the point in creating it in the first place.

The purpose of the What If? show was basically the same as the What If? comic - a place where writers can just play and have fun with short, self-contained stories that they don't need to worry about any consequences from for the cannon universe. To go nuts with some silly idea, and just have fun with it. That's what I loved about the comics, and I ended up liking the cartoon series a lot for the same reason. They can do something silly, stupid, crazy, or just plain neat and not have to worry about how it affects the future of that character moving forward.

I've liked all the MCU shows so far to varying degrees. I loved Loki, Wandavision, Falcon & WS, What If?, and Moon Knight - and all for different reasons. Hawkeye was fun... but I thought it was the weakest of the shows so far. That said, I think Hawkeye came out RIGHT when it was needed, just as a bit of a palette cleanser. The stakes for the Hawkeye show were much, much lower - which was needed at the time - and I appreciated the "street-level" story as a nice break between crisis's with world or universe harming implications. So it was the weakest, but I still enjoyed the watch.

The interaction between Kate Bishop and Yelena was the best part of all the Marvel series so far, if the Hawkeye show leads to a buddy movie with the two of them it will be worth it.

The new avengers team up is a given, it's just a matter of what that team looks like....

I'd be more incline to believe moon knight were involved if they'd actually included anything tying him directly to MCU canon. So far he's just... there and nothing in his canon seems to gel directly with the rest of it. There a lot of things it introduces that kind of brings into question established MCU lore. Like the Egyptian gods, for starters.

I've really enjoyed the D+ shows.  My ratings:

Tied for first place is Loki and Hawkeye.  After that is TFatWS, then WandaVision.  I think the one I really didn't care for is the What If? series.

And as others have said, Loki is the only series that really left a "cliffhanger" compared to the others....so...an easy explanation of why it would get a 2nd season.

Kevin Feige basically admitted there are not going to be anymore "Avengers" movies. Now, there might be some big cross over something or other, but they weren't going to call it Avengers. Which sucks, b/c we're still missing the Great Lakes Avengers.

Myk-House of El: I suppose "most watched" roughly translates to "it made us a lot of money."

Not everything has to be setting up the next big thing


In fact that's what ruined comics, with no breathing room and everything is a tie in to some giant multi title arc
