Ok, just watched episode one and you’re right.

The end of the episode was weird (when they were having dinner)...

I watched it because Marvel and it's new. However, not sure where they are taking this or what they are actually going for.

RANT: It's like the end credits are as long as the screen time. WTF?

Scarlet and Vision are the two most boring Marvel characters. (At least Hawkeye became Ronin).
Good thing they got their own show :up:

tbh I'll probably watch a few eps, who knows.

Started watching Warrior, the Bruce Lee martial arts/western series that's now available on HBO Max. Not bad.

Night Stalker on Netflix

Interesting so far...madness that someone like that existed and that LA cops are such dicks when it comes to helping each other

Yeah, I’m late to this one, but it’s a riot! Really good writing...

Lupin - 4/10

Would be 7/10 if it was only the first ep but the writing is horrible.

First five eps are out on netflix.

WandaVision

It’s starting to look more like you’re average Marvel product...

I thought episode 4 was excellent - some context, Kat Dennings, dead Vision...

Yeah, it looks to be pretty obvious that Wanda has created this Westview paradise to cope with the loss of Vision. I just hope there’s more substance than that...

Watched the first two episodes of wandavision. All hype, no plot. It may have a twist eventually but I don't care.
Started re-watching The Magicians on Netflix instead.

Dude I’m not saying it’s an amazing show, but it’s obvious in the first episode there is more than meets the eye. You give up pretty easily...

It's been a while since I watched any Marvel, and the wife was wondering about starting Wandavision too. Would you guys recommend a rewatch/recap of a movie or two before jumping in or does it lead you into the characters a bit?

It’s hard to say being only 4 episodes in. But you do need to have some knowledge of at least Avengers Infinity War and Endgame. There are some major plot points that would be helpful to understand what’s going on...

I have very little patience for shows that string you along on the vague promise that something interesting will happen... maybe in the season finale? Maybe next season? In the mean time, tune in next week for another boring "ironic" send-up of classic TV sitcoms! With Easter eggs!

Made it to about halfway of the second episode of Wanda Vision. To that point had to be the worst viewing.

Talking WandaVision:

Ok, the ending of episode 5 confused the fuck out of me. But only because of the actor playing Pietro. This guy played Peter/Quicksilver in the X-men movies. But now he’s playing Pietro? Are they the same character? Why didn’t they use the same actor they had in Ultron? The fuck is going on?

Can anyone recommend or give comment on the TV series Schitt's Creek please? Someone suggested it is worth watching :)

I've found Schitt's Creek but haven't started viewing as yet.

However I stumbled upon and oldie, a TV series of just 17 episodes called The Prisoner starring Patrick McGoohan. I remember it was a favourite of my parents. The first episode is available on YouTube and I think I found the others....

I've caught several episodes while my wife was watching it. Not the best thing I've ever seen, but it was pretty ok. Definitely worth checking out to see if it's your kind of thing. Wasn't really mine, but not every show is for everybody.

Trawling through YouTube as you do, I stumbled on a "Snopes' link to an item Did Santiago Flight 513 Disappear in 1954 Only to Land in 1989? which led me to a Twilight Zone episode called Twilight Zone Flight 33 :up:

Edit: The Mrs asked how I got to the Twilight Zone :eek: and I tried to explain, one minute I am watching a Clint Eastwood classic, The Outlaw Josey Wales from 1976 and then :eek:
