I'm A Casual Marvel Fan, But I Just Watched All Of "WandaVision" And Had A Lot Of Thoughts
77. Also, what's happening right now?
Warning: obviously MAJOR spoilers for WandaVision lie ahead, but there's also a spoiler for the book The Giver, so, you know, you've been warned.
For the past several weeks — or, in these trying times, for the past ≥ six homemade breads — WandaVision has been the hugest of shows. So, I decided to watch it and see what everyone was raving about.
However, I am not a Marvel expert in the slightest. I've actively seen Marvel movies within the past year, and I love the whole thing about the Infinity Stones, but I basically know nothing about the comics.
Nevertheless — or, perhaps, because of that — here is a play-by-play of my casual-Marvel-fan thoughts I had while watching WandaVision.
To set the scene before Episode 1, Vision is dead and Wanda is presumably very sad about it because they were in love. Now...let's get cooking.
Episode 1, "Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience"
My main takeaway after Episode 1: I'm so into it. It's out of nowhere, but I'm so into it.
Episode 2, "Don't Touch That Dial"
Episode 2 takeaway: shit is happening.
Episode 3, "Now in Color"
Episode 3 takeaway: shit.
Episode 4, "We Interrupt This Program"
Episode 4 takeaway: SHIIIIT.
Episode 5, "On a Very Special Episode..."
Episode 5 takeaway: shit's about to go down.
Episode 6, "All-New Halloween Spooktacular!"
Episode 6 takeaway: unbelievable.
Episode 7, "Breaking the Fourth Wall"
Episode 7 takeaway: wowie.
Episode 8, "Previously On"
Episode 8 takeaway: brilliant.
Episode 9, "The Series Finale"
Episode 9 takeaway: that was so sad. I can't believe how good that was.
WandaVision takeaway: It's one of the best things I've ever seen. The way that everyone was the same character in different time periods is a feat of acting. The story was so respectful of sitcoms. What a portrayal of grief.
Every single human should watch this. And every single witch. And every single Vision. And every single Kree or whatever they're called.
