I knew he’d show up but not that version!

I think I see the need for last episode now, but I still assert this show would be much more interesting if it could be entirely sitcom.

My issue is that I don’t entirely see this series as more than an experiment. As we see more and more, Wandavision is little more than doses of things we’ve seen elsewhere: Truman Show, Annihilation, Pleasantville, Inception. It makes for something decently interesting, but it brings up a branding problem that it feels as though it’s fighting really hard to course-correct. Marvel has built a brand mercilessly for nearly thirteen years now and although we were given the heads up that Phase 4 was going to get a little more out there, I’m not sure how this is correlating yet. When I think Marvel, I’m not sure something like Wandavision is what I’m expecting/wanting and yet when I think of weird, surrealist cinema Wandavision doesn’t really reach the depths of brilliance there either because it has to retain elements of the MCU when it could be David Lynch directs Marvel if they’d run with it.

That was crazy and I absolutely love it!

Holy crap... That episode was great! Evan Peters Pietro, but in the MCU? I am bonkers confused.

I love that Vision's finally figured it out. Also, baby Vision just crept me the fuck out.

Oh and also the part where Agnes slipped out of character was so, so good.

loading replies

Sooo......maybe Wanda isn't controlling all of this but just using it for her benefits?

loading replies

OMFG! Its rare that I have a total full-blown unrepentant geekasm, but the last five seconds of this episode are the best five seconds of television since Buffy sang in a musical.

I have just watched this episode and OMG, I loved it from the beginning until the end. I knew it was going somewhere...

Spoiler Warning: Agnes: do you want to take it from the top ? Wanda looked nervous that Agnes knows what is going on. Great scene.
Plus Agnes probably killed the dog. I think Agnes is who Vision’s co-worker is afraid of, not Wanda.
Awesome 80’s like opening credits as well. Such an awesome episode. Quicksilver from the Fox X-Men movies. So weird.

This episode's sitcom parody was maybe the most accurate yet (except that they just gave up and shot it in widescreen) but whenever it cuts back to the "real world" the show just loses all steam for me. I love Randall Park and Kat Dennings in those roles, but those scenes are filled with such clunky, expository dialogue they're just not enjoyable. I didn't understand why people were so excited about that ending at all because I didn't recognize that guy. Maybe I'm crazy, but I kinda feel like you shouldn't have to google actors' past work to understand plot points of a TV show!

OH MY GOD IT'S FUCKING PIETRO!!!! EVAN PETERS PIETRO! Lowkey wish it was Aaron Taylor Johnson tho...... BUT I KNEW IT. Every time the door bell ring, I always wish it was Pietro and it wasn't, but I kept thinking 'oh, it's coming alright, it's coming' and then BOOM.

Also, I have never been more scared of Vision until he raised his voice as he argue with Wanda, like..... shit, I'm genuinely scared.

Vision being like "Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?"

This is the last episode I am watching!
If they want to go on with this old comedy parody this show is not for me. I hope all the other Marvel shows will not follow this path. If you want to pay homage, do it with one (at most two) episodes. This is not the show I expected and I came to watch. The continuous change of scene between parody and "reality" is bothering me. Scarlet Witch is a fantastic character to expand and explore as you see in the very few snippets this show gets "real" and Elizabeth Olsen is a great actress able to act in a superb way in every role, comedy just doesn't fit in the MCU for me.
You lost me at this point and I surely will not be in cinemas (whenever they will open again after pandemic) watching new MCU phase 4 films on day 1 as I did before, I will wait to see if they are worth.
3/10 for the episode, 1/10 for the show 9/10 for Elizabeth's acting.

Well, this episode got dark very fast.

First, the kids aging up is creepy weird. Second, Wanda emerging from the hex; that's freaky. And for a moment, I thought she was going to kill the head of S.W.O.R.D.

He wants some agency and Wanda isn't giving it to him. He wants to live properly. I'm feeling really sorry for Vision; let the boy be free!

TECHNICAL SCORE: 7/10
ENJOYMENT SCORE: 8/10

WHOA! Shocking ending! I love it. Our first crossover from Fox’s X-Men

This show is getting so good. Wanda facing off with S.W.O.R.D. was so amazing!

I just absolutely LOVE this show.

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!!!!! Evan Peters!!!!!!!!

loading replies

My God… that episode was AMAZING! There’s so much stuff to talk about. First, we now know that Wanda is in (at least 90%) control of everything that happens inside Westview and that Agnes also knows what Wanda is doing and she is (for some unknown reason) just going along with it. Does she have an ulterior motive or is she providing the means necessary to help Wanda? Vision just found out what is happening and he’s both terrified and worried, the woman he loves is controlling and hurting other people to fill her own selfish needs. That’s gonna blow up in her face… eventually. I’m pretty sure there’s a logical –in universe– explanation for the Pietro “recast” and the episode’s full with loads of proof:

  1. A brother that lives “far away” (not dead and in another Universe).
  2. “Family is forever”.
  3. She is not “creating” new people or new stuff. Maybe it's the soul shreds thing from the comics?

You didn't see that coming?

Finally, it starts to get good. Took too long to get there and the sitcom gimmick - when it's being entirely that and Vision isn't breaking it down - is still cringey as fuck. But seeing it come apart, seeing more plot unfold is good to finally see.

Dark as hell for Marvel to be like "yeah Wanda stole Vision's corpse" but I can't really feel much for it aside from that because I still don't buy this relationship. Maybe that'll change by the end or not. Who knows. The writing and acting need to convince me and seeing him and Wanda fight - like really fight/yell - was a good step in that direction.

Either way, glad to see it get more interesting.
Still pretty sure Agnes is pulling more strings than Wanda in this, so I'm looking forward to seeing what that reveal is.

I knew it ! yes! So happy they went this way.

I guess you have to be a MCU nut to really get into this show. The fact that X-Men's Quicksilver shows up is weird and will force many to have to resort to Googling the connection. I like the Marvel movies, too, but this show and its interwoven story lines are probably just going to frustrate most newcomers who won't understand what all the fuss is about.

I'm not hating on this series, it's just made for the fans, of which there are millions. And it's going to be a treat for them.

Oh my goodness. Is this the beginning of the X-Men entering into the MCU?!

This series is so inconsistent - a couple of brilliant episodes and a few awful episodes. In my view, this was not a good episode. The sooner the writers move away from the "sitcom" scenario the better - it feels like it has been pushed too far already.

loading replies

Really loving this series. Excellent episode!

loading replies

I like that it's heading back to the sitcom format but I hate that it's beginning to explain things as well. It's only episode 5 and there are still 4 episodes to go. I don't want answers yet! That being said, this week's ending was a killer, though.

Holy shit this had me screaming on my seat! That was so good, at the same time it got me confused.

Mostly good episode brought down by the sitcom crap.

I've liked the episode but the only thing I really didn't liked it the commander agent was made in a shitty trope that doesn't make sense because if he is someone high up in SWORD, then he absolutely should know how to deal with supers.

Horrible to watch. The comments in agent scenes about the show suck. The kids addressing the audience is a bad tool for a show like this. Show looks like a big filler and a bad written new agent organization.

I still wonder if this'll ever make much sense but at least it's interesting (and trying to figure out what's going on as well as guessing what'll happen next is fun even though I'm not good at it).

the death of Pietro was the greatest travesty of any of the Marvel films... I'm glad to see it finally righted!

loading replies

I fast-forwarded through most of the sitcom garbage since it's become obvious to me that it's the only way that I'm going to be able to enjoy this show. Part of it is the fact that it's SUCH a waste of time for the most part in a self-indulgent way on the part of the writers and producers, but most of it, I admit, is the simple fact that I loathe laugh tracks. If you were to look at my viewing history here on Trakt, you'd see a complete absence of laugh track-laden sitcoms, and for that very reason. In any case, the 20 minutes or so of this one that I watched is a good mix of revelations on both sides of the bubble, with more tie-ins and callbacks to the larger MCU canon. I guess I'll keep on keeping on for now while being grateful for the fast-forwarding option...

i cant express in words my exitment when i saw that silver hair as she opened the door. I love this show, the mcu is heading in an amazing direction, especially if the spiderman 3 rumours are true. I kinda regret catching up though coz I cant wait for the next episode.

loading replies

Every second spent outside of sitcom world lessens the impact of the show as whole. I have never watched any Marvel content, but the sitcom stuff just works on its own terms. Everything outside the 'bubble' is very standard and tedious.

My only complaint with the sitcom part is getting the time periods so badly wrong: the Internet in the 1980s, on a Commodore 64, in a 'mainstream' sitcom? Was that a deliberate anachronism as a nod to something? As it made no sense otherwise.

Here's hoping next episode is a Horsin' Around-style 90s sitcom!

You did it. You crazy sons of bitches did it! You merged the X-Men franchise into the MCU.

It was bound to happen after the 20th Century Fox buyout, and Deadpool 3 being confirmed, but this was the most unexpected way to pull it off.

loading replies

What a great big meta nod to bring the Xmen universe version of Quicksilver in. I do much prefer Aaron Taylor-Johnson's but must admit that's a great move and fits in with the idea that she can't create/ressurect. Instead she's just changed someone else to fit.

The ending was mind blowing :O

Btw, if her father appeared (played by Ian Mckellen) at the end of the series for short cameo that would be fantastic. Just saying)
