WandaVision

So the first two episodes came out today. I thought Marvel could do no wrong but they're trying their hardest with this one.

I get the concept but jeez it's tedious. The first episode was pretty much all terrible, and the second only had moments which were in any way interesting.

I hope they don't drag this out all season with small reveals near the end of each one. They need to get on with why they're there pretty damn sharpish or I'll just catch up once it's all done so I can skip through it.

I quite enjoyed the first two episodes but I agree it will get boring quickly if they don't move the reveals on soon. Its certainly going to get mixed reactions.

It's just awful. Really struggled to get through it. Needs to pick up fast

This seems to be getting very positive reviews from the critics so this is interesting to read people's views on here. Will get round to watching over the weekend at some point.

I thought both episodes were a bit weak.

I really enjoyed it - well made and willing to take risks that might alienate some of the obvious fan base.

Same here, I think I've watched a different show to every one else compared to some of the opinions.

Watched the first two episodes tonight. I can see how people may not like it overall but it had some good and also some funny moments while subverting the tropes of the sitcoms of old.

Same here. I don't think there is going to be much rewatch value in this show, so I'm happy for it to unfold week by week and try to get some enjoyment out of what they are doing. I do think there are Easter eggs to find and subtleties to look for...

Loved it. Great casting too.

The scene where Mr Hart was choking was completely unnerving.

It's ok I suppose.

It's not particularly funny either and, as others have said, they need to start ramping up the reveals

I enjoyed it after I got used to it not being action packed MCU. The canned laughter seemed to be too often to me though, but then maybe that was how those shows were.

I’ll keep watching. I mean it’s 25 mins and interesting enough to get me through to the conspiracy reveal stuff.

It was very Twin Peaksy.

Quite enjoyed the first two. I actually really liked the old skool sitcom setting but it going to get old fast. Hopefully it will move on quickly after this.

I really enjoyed it. Maybe it was the “simple” nostalgia thing, but was better than thought would be and had that “lost” vibe in that people end up talking about what’s what and how things will unfold

The strange thing is it does seem to be a show which gives the viewers more the more they know about the comic book universe (the m logo on the bottle of wine, the whole house of m stuff, the house number, and the headgear for the suspected main villain in the credits etc etc)

It seemed to be a show where all the normal geeky eater eggs are actually things that are likely very important.

Saw episode 1 last night, started, I enjoye dit, made me laugh and had a bewitched feel. But as it went on it started to feel too contrived and rushed in its situation, with a farce vibe that just wasnt funny, and by the end of the ep it was dragging and I wasn't enjoying it and it had ceased to be funny and was terrible instead (the lobsters)

Will watch second ep next week and hope it gets better.

I had to watch it twice before it clicked with me. The first time I watched it it was OK, weirdly I enjoyed it much more the second time round as I felt like I hadn't given it enough of a chance on the first watch, but it'll need to go somewhere pretty quick to maintain my interest
