Yeah I think they are probably just too short. Definitely no time for the stories to breath or to get any kind of expectations for them to subvert. They are almost like cliff notes, summaries of what happened in a story arc with all the filler edited out. I really wish they spent more time on these so they wouldn't feel like they are watering down the MCU.
