69. "It's pretty messy, but fun"
In response to In response to 62


  

          

People keep saying they're blurring the line between movies and TV but between the semi-truck fight and this...I don't watch the modern DC stuff but I'm flashing back to fight scenes from Smallville and Buffy and whatnot with the editing and coherence. If Zemo was the priority, why's he slipping out with a comedic grin on his face like it's a Scooby Doo episode?


Andy Greenwald said something I found pretty smart on The Watch, and he's read a lot of the source material but usually seems to have a level head about Marvel generally: Falcon/WS has a lot of good ideas, but it's not necessarily making a case for the ideas outside of just laying them on the table.


It's kinda weird this is only 6 episodes with all the shit they're trying to cover here, and while the show talked a big game about honestly dealing with Sam as Cap and Sam's role as a hero in the world in general, I think the show FEELS more interested in trying to make big screen action work on a "TV budget" and being kind of a buddy cop show. The dance club scene was the key for me - there's zero point to it, but we got a meme so who cares!


Again, I like the show and I really, really hope it sticks the landing on the parts I'm most interested in, but I'm reading over the top praise for what's going on here just being happy for those folks. 'Cause right now this show's like a sloppy joe - full of flavor but a real mess.

      For that matter: Why they make a regular dude Cap anyways?
Apr 13th 2021
76
           They needed someone they could control
