Glad they dropped both, but now I want more! Big Grin

I watched the first two as well. I enjoyed it. Of course Scarlet Witch (Wanda) was on the character I collected her appearances in Marvel Comics so this has been a real treat.

No more Mutants . . .
. . . Errr, I mean “WandaVision” to watch this Friday.
But the making of/behind the scenes show is pretty interesting.

I caught one episode, I think it was the third episode. I didn't know what was going on and, given later recaps I read, probably would not have know what was going on even if I had seen it from the beginning.

I wonder how popular this type of Marvel or DC or Star Wars, or whatever big universe franchise show you might think of, really is? Or is it just that the market platform is small, so popular viewing can be minimal and still be considered successful?

Perhaps I like my entertainment less complex, but I can't be bothered to know the complete history of a franchise to understand what is going on. I can't make all the character connections, or find all the hidden Easter eggs, or anticipate how this storyline will eventually link up with some other storyline that is running in some other time or place.

It's not that I only want mindless entertainment, but superheroes and mutants should be mindless entertainment since they are not real. I just want to enjoy that stuff for the nonsense it is and not have to read a book to explain what I was looking at.

I feel exactly the same way about something like Twin Peaks too. It makes no sense. People get so invested in some of these shows for years and years, they just don't want to admit that it makes no sense. It's Lost all over again. Big Grin

Just finished watching the 3rd episode. I liked it in color much better. It has a multi generational feeling. The show is silly fun.

My brother told me about the show and said I should check it out. I've seen the first two episodes and I do like it. For this show, I think you really needed to see the first episode first and then the second rather than a random one out-of-sequence. I'm not up on most of the behind-the-scenes details either. I have heard about the Easter Eggs but haven't looked for them.

I started watching television in the early 70's, "watching" meaning understanding what I was seeing and hearing. "Brady Bunch", "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "Partridge Family" were primetime then. All the reruns of the time were 50's and 60's shows and I watched it all. I've enjoyed the re-creation of the look of previous TV decades for the first two "Wandavision" episodes because I was present for a lot of 50's and 60's stuff (cars, furniture, appliances, tech) in everyday life. It was still around in the 70's. I would wonder how many 20-30 year-olds enjoy the evolution of everything from one episode to another or if it is just a bunch of old stuff to them but I have been surprised at how familiar many of them are with various eras of 20th century pop culture. I've worked with people in their early 20's who have caught me slipping a Beatles quote (and not an obvious one) in a conversation and I have caught another singing an old Bill Withers tune.

My mom saw the first episode. She understood that they were going for a 50's look and she could appreciate the attention to detail but she'd rather watch a show from that time rather than an artful re-creation of that time.

Hi Steve,

I might watch that one tonight. It was interesting that the second episode had a spoof of the "Bewitched" opening credits along with flickers of color during the episode. That show was one of those that was filmed in black-and-white early in its run and switched to color by 1966-1967.

Definitely have to watch the show in order. The first 3 episodes are in filmed in B&w and can be fairly difficult for some to get through, but it’s part of the set up for the remainder of the show.

Since it’s only 9 episodes so you don’t have to invest as my time into as as a show like Lost or Twin Peaks. Knowing the backstory from the various Marvel movies are helpful, but not a necessity. The making of/behind the scenes episode fills in many of the nuances of went on in the show.

I've seen only some of the Marvel movies so I'm not up on all the details (haven't seen Endgame yet but have heard bits of what happened). I haven't felt like it was necessary to have all the background to enjoy what's gone on so far - now four episodes in.
