Snapped Back Into Reality - "WandaVision" So Far

 As a fan of the MCU, I was pretty excited about WandaVision simply because it was part of the larger story.

Once it was revealed that it would be a partial tribute to classic television my excitement level increased. I grew up with syndicated television reruns, everything from "I Love Lucy" to "The Brady Bunch" and onward. I was ready.

And just like that, watching the first two episodes (which were tributes to "Lucy," "The Dick Van Dyke Show," and "Bewitched") sent me into classic T.V. nostalgia warmness. All the while dropping weird glitches and hints at something much more serious and sinister. Many fans were just outright confused. I can't say that I truly knew where all this was going but the nods to T.V. were keeping my attention. The third episode (being a "Brady Bunch" homage) brought even more glitches and weirdness and MCU fans were slowly starting to have their own theories about what was going on.

As this fourth episode aired, it left the security blanked of television memories and swiftly explained (but not too much) what was going on with all of these confusing episodes. And hinted at a tragic and terrifying reality for our Marvel superheroes, with The Scarlet Witch in particular the focus of maintaining a reality far removed from her losses.

This show, much like the rest of the MCU, represents a riveting type of storytelling that goes into different types of genres, giving it its own distinction all the while keeping up the continuity of the storyline. What's also great about this show is that it's utilizing a lot of under appreciated characters, including the lead superheroes. And though there is now Captain America, Hulk, or Iron Man, the power of Marvel is very much in this show.

They are giving us such great storytelling so far through familiar and unique ways. Which is why we love The MCU to begin with. Unfortunately the tea leaves tell us this isn't going to end well. And that alone is gripping. And I can't WAIT for more...
