    I Just Watched Episode 2 Of "The Falcon And The Winter Soldier" As A Casual Marvel Fan, And I Had Some Thoughts

    Hello! Welcome to week two of my thoughts watching The Falcon and the Winter Soldier as a casual, stranger-to-the-comics, far-from-an-expert Marvel movie fan.

    Let's get into Episode 2, "The Star-Spangled Man."

    15. Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie are now in a plane over Munich, staring at each other in silence. We have to assume they've been like this the entire journey to Germany. Eight-plus hours of silent staring.

    45. Lol. I just Wikipedia'd it and his name is Helmut Zemo. Those parents did not do him any favors.

    That's it for Episode 2! My main takeaway: I'm liking the show more, but I wish it were only the interpersonal stuff. I don't really care about the Red Hand People.
