Wanda vision is... weird. Not sure I like it yet. Some interesting theories online as to what the show is setting up.
Tried it last night and the first episode was painfully slow but I suspect its building up to something much bigger

Im going to wait for a few more epiosdes to be released so I can binge it.

My month of D+ ends like tomorrow, so I figure I'll wait until the series is done and then sign back up in a few months

So I kinda like WandaVision. It seems to be put together by a team that has a real affection for old TV comedies and comdey tropes.

I thought that they would be doing a sitcom from every decade, so I thought the first episode was doing "I Love Lucy", but Dezi was a Bandleader and didn't do a 9-5 gig. So then I thought: Olsen is doing Mary Tyler Moore, and that makes a lot of sense, so the First Episode is "The Dick Van Dyke Show".

The second is clearly "Bewitched".

I hear the third is "The Brady Bunch" as they move into the 70's. I wonder if we will get an "All in the Family"/"Good Times" vibe to it. Really any Norman Lear show.

Waiting for "The Crosby Show" and "Friends" takeoff. Maybe "Mad About You" as there has to be a couple in it

So I watched it anyway because my wife wanted to see it....woof. What in the **** did they do to Wonder Woman? If you're going to spend almost 90 minutes to get the movie started, how did almost no character development or anything remotely interesting happen?

I guess, maybe. I'm not a fan of the campy 70's & 80's era superhero stuff (Hulk, WW, Superman, etc), so paying homage to that didn't do a lot for me. I'll say this, of everything that occurred in the first ~60 minutes, at least it was the honest and decent execution of some sort of filmmaking or storytelling concept.

You don't know what you're missing.

When I was a little kid, my aunts in LA were well aware of my superhero obsession, especially Spidey.

So one time I got like three VHS tapes in the mail, and when I popped them in the VCR, it was a few of these live action Spiderman episodes. Back then, no internet, no reruns really since it was several years after it aired (maybe a decade), so I didn't even know the show existed. What a thrill.

Unrelated thrill - as a comic fanboy, I recently got referred a client whose work for DC and Marvel I've kinda been obsessed with for 20+ years now. Pretty fucking cool even though 99.9% of the world wouldn't know him or his name.
