‘WandaVision’ Is Exceptional!

Well, I’ve seen the first two episodes of WandaVision and wow, what a premiere! What Kevin Feige has attempted with this series should be a disaster and yet the writer, Jac Schaeffer, has managed to do the impossible; recreate the old-timey tone of the 50s’ and 60s’ sitcoms without making it feel too on-the-nose or just…weird. And yet, this series basks in its weirdness and I love it!

I was rather surprised with the level of humor in this show so far. Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany manage to find their inner comedic charm, providing the episodes the proper tone without ever feeling forced or unnatural.

I’m loving Kathryn Hahn’s Agnes who is just hilarious. Every time she’s onscreen my smile manages to get a little wider. Now…is she the primary villain of this show? I’m not quite sure. In fact, I’m not quite sure what the heck is happening!

There are little sprinkles here and there letting the audience know that something is very, very wrong and each episode concludes with a chill-inducing cliffhanger that has me losing my mind! The second episode ended and I said to myself, “I’ve got to wait until next Friday to see what happens next? NO!!!!”

This show has started off with a bang and now I understand that these next seven weeks are only going to get more and more interesting.

To be honest, if you’re not dying to see every episode when it premieres, I would advise you to wait until the series is over and then binge-watch it because this show is undoubtedly going to have some searing cliffhangers and honestly, I would probably wait until it was finished to watch the rest of the seven episodes if I wasn’t deathly afraid of seeing spoilers on my spoiler-ridden Twitter so…

All in all, I’m giving the first two episodes 5 out of 5 stars and 100 out of 100. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

  1. Hey, we’re finally watching the same show again! πŸ™ƒ

    It’s kind of weird, because I have a bit of a policy to try to avoid watching most trailers and reading descriptions because they often spoil a bit of the show. But for this show? I think you kind of have to know in advance that what your watching isn’t truly the farce it seems to be at face value, and that something sketchy or even sinister may be going on. I go into greater length in my own blog as to my theory of WHAT is going on (pssst… I don’t think it’s the neighbors), but knowing that SOMETHING is going on and that all is not well here is fairly important going in, IMO. The show almost lost me in the first ten or fifteen minutes when I didn’t. πŸ˜“
