First Episode Date: 15 January 2021
Storyline: In what appears to be a spot-on black-and-white rendition of a 1950s domestic sitcom, Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), a.k.a. the Avengers’ Scarlet Witch, lives with the cyberbeing Vision (Paul Bettany), complete with a scrunched 4:3 aspect ratio, canned laughs, and a zany dinner.
Wanda’s predicament, concealing her supernatural ability from her ordinary neighbors, sounds like something out of a 1960s fabulist sitcom like “Bewitched.” And that’s just what “WandaVision” becomes in Episode 2, with no clarification but a growing feeling that something isn’t quite right in this made-for-TV universe.
The show’s greatest surprise is how “WandaVision” explores what it really is week by week and decade by decade.
Thumbs up: It’s an entertaining show that feels like a Marvel movie. The show is very interesting. Moreover, we have always known Wanda as not being the most powerful avenger but in this show, we just see how powerful she is.
Thumbs down: The first two episodes are pretty much average which might make some people think twice of finishing the series.
