I’m ready to get back in the MCU groove. I’m ready to see ANYTHING. And, I’m ready for D+ to ramp up and show & prove on the value side because the one-year Verizon deal is about up and I’ve only watched The Mandalorian.

The show itself is very good though, especially if you spent a lot of time confusedly watching Nick @ Nite.

I'm not intimately familiar with 50's era US television, but from what I can tell they nailed the atmosphere, and the humor ties into the Marvel side of things just enough to prevent the old fashioned jokes from feeling stale.

The parts where reality seeps in are a welcome break from the zaniness and keep you guessing as to what is really going on. Olsen does a terrific job of switching up her performance when the moment calls for it.

Bettany is great too, he reminded me a bit of a less obscene Rick Mayall with his demeanor and appearance in episode 2.

Obviously things will need to start moving along from her on out, since the 50s schtick wouldn't work for a whole season, but these first two episodes are really encouraging.

I'm loving to see where the illusion is breaking down.

It's kinda hard to accept the comedy when you kinda know literally nothing is real. That choking scene got kinda creepy.

so i ended up skipping through looking for action, which ever came. maybe i just wasn't in the right mood. i just didn't think the writing or jokes were any good, but I do think the concept is brilliant.

It's a sitcom but with surrealism in it with a very sister undertone.

Obviously everyone is trapped in some kind of mind construct.

Very excited to see this week to week.

Calling it Lynchian is a bit much but for a Marvel show it’s definitely a satisfying off-kilter start

If you didn't grow up with Nick at Nite/after-school syndication, I don't know if this hits the mark. I don't know if the references work, or if they hit as hard.

I found it to be fascinating as a sitcom. I don't know if I care about the rest of the interweaving thats happening, but I'm sure I'm enjoy that as well. They never explained the show to me from the beginning, so I came in with no expectation of any action.

its like they took the 1 weird/surreal/dream/hallucination episode of the season that some shows do (which tend to be provocative and/or over much of the audiences head) and they are making it the premise of an entire season.

it feels like it could be exhausting tryna sniff out the references to make everything make sense.

but its fresh/ambitious and i support that. i do hope it works out in the end.

Couple of decent easter eggs in the first two eps are enough for me. Also Olson and Bettany are doing great with the sitcom hubby and wife trope, K. Hahn as the neighbor is great.

Being a long time fam of these characters, I didn't expect to jump into a super powered brawl. I assumed this series would be much more subtle in it's storytelling. I think this series is playing the long game, which fits Vision & SW.

That being said, they run the risk of letting it go on for too long. The Netflix Marvel runs had the terrible habit of being about 4 episodes longer than necessary. And I get how people unfamiliar with the characters could be completely lost.

But as of now, I'm definitely intrigued.

Especially since that was one of the more common criticisms leveled against the Marvel stuff on Netflix. Everybody thought it dragged, I'm sure Feige & co. took note.

If the quality remains consistent, I think moving into more recent and recognizable TV eras will do a lot to reel people in. I don't think there's a lot of Marvel fans (or Disney+ subs, even) that have a lot of memories of 50's or 60's TV beyond a few reruns.

Even now it's sitting at a comfortable if not terrific rating of around 7.5 on IMDb and Metacritic, which isn't bad for something that's essentially a big experiment and quite a deviation from what Marvel fans are used to.

I love it so far. But I can understand all the hate it getting. I thing by ep 4 there will be a shift in tone and focus that will pull everyone in.

I liked when shit got real when the laugh track stopped. The façade is cracking and Wanda keeps erasing them where she can. I kinda wanna check an Easter egg video but the last one I saw gave way too much info for me.

You get the feeling this show was a lot of fun to write/make, I bet it'll be cool for the bingers to come to in a couple months and watch how the actors change up their performances, the writers change up the dialogue and the camerawork gets more involved sll in an evening.


You do kinda wish the show was actually funny but oh well.
