Re: WandaVision

I finally got round to watching this show. This is one show where you need to binge watch it so you don't get put off by the B/W sitcom format early on , which is really just part of a constucted world from happy childhood memories watching videos with her brother and parents.  It really is a fine show suprised that Marvel resisted its tendency to dull one brain with hoards of baddies knocking one another about 24/7 ( eg the Avenger films). Unlike others here I found it starting off as Bewitched in B/W tantalising then slowly being revealed as scifi and then even later back to witches. And Elizabeth Olsen is gorgeous. So Marvel can do good shows when it wants to and has a limited set of characters  and not fighting over the fate of the universe( bore). The Bitter -Sweet ending just hit the mark with me. I think she deserves her own film like Captain Marvel, or atleast having significant appearances in other shows.

By comparison that other mini series "The Falcon & the Winter Soldier" was a dud , back to Marvel knock the shite out of people

Glad you finally watched it.  Couldn't agree more. Loved this show.

Re: WandaVision

One of the things I like was at the end she walked the walk of shame through all the townsfolk she had enslaved. Wanda did really bad things worse than even the "bad" witch who wanted her powers. Not typical for Marvel super heroes who are 100% perfect or dismiss any mistakes with the wave of an arm.
