A simple word - WandaVision. In my mind, (not a very simple place to place to live..... I overthink, overreact, over plan, and yes, I even overtype. Where was I again? Oh yeah.....) I always saw it as 2 meanings. Like television, but from Wanda -- WandaVision. Or simply as the 2 characters -- WandaVision.
I'm not going to go as into the whole plot in this one as I do with some other articles. There was definitely a lot of talk about this leading up the airing. Then there was a lot of confusion when it aired, especially after the first couple episodes. Also thrown in there, were a lot of mixed reviews. Some loved it. Some hated it. Some didn't know what to make it of it. The first 2 episodes were like contained sitcoms in 1950's style. This is actually one of the things that drew me in. Yes, I'm a huge Marvel fan anyway but I am also a movie/tv geek and loved watching sitcoms as a kid. So, I laughed at the classic sitcom gags and cheesy plots. Something a little different from the MCU but they did their research and teamed with all the right to people to make it happen and made sure it’s done right.
As the episodes progress, we learn a little more about what’s really going on but shhh. So much to say and so little time. Any Marvel aficionado with have an absolute joygasm over the well planted Easter eggs from the MCU and even from the comics. If you are more well versed in the comics history, you may already know how certain plotlines will play out. If you aren't that well versed and need a little explaining, there are plenty of videos on YouTube but since they explain things, they do give away a few things and plant theories which may or may not pan out also. So if you look things up as things are happening, you may get spoiled - and now you can't say you weren't warned.
WandaVision is a wild 9 episode ride, shot in front of a live audience for the sitcom parts. Pretty awesome, right? And actually, done with old school wire effects for the real 50's feel. Very cool! Yes, I am a giant nerd! After all is said and done, there is also the "Marvel Studios: Assembled" documentary on the behind the scenes to delve into. That’s only one episode but it’s nearly an hour long look into what was going on behind the scenes. Definitely a must watch for fans!
DAVE - Dave Christy loves horror, music, documentaries and more. He is also the co-runner of several fan based groups including Morningstars (THE Lucifer fan group also run by Melanie), and now is a member of the VIPers Spotlight Lounge team for Melanie's Muses. Other than "In The Spotlight" Features -check out his "31 Days Of Halloween Movies"
I’m always on the hunt for something different and "WandaVision" definitely fits that description. When I first heard they were doing this show I was excited, because boy do I love Wanda and Vision together.
**SPOILERS - This note added by Melanie but she also recognizes that this is her own fault because she refuses to watch the last two Avengers movies and is probably one of only 10 or so people that haven't lol **
When he died in the "Infinity Wars" movie, I could definitely feel my heart break along with Wanda's.
Now, I know what you’re all thinking. These Marvel shows are being overdone, and it’s the same thing again and again but NOPE! Well at least not "WandaVision". It takes a spin on classic series and makes it its own. Now I won’t say which series because that’s part of the fun with each episode trying to guess what old show they’re mimicking now. I also had fun trying to figure out what’s really going on and who’s behind it. But after a few episodes for me it was pretty much obvious, so let me know if you figured it out too!
If you haven’t watched "Wandavision" yet or on the fence about it, don’t be. Trust me this is definitely a series that you’ll enjoy.
JENN - Jennifer Rhodes met Melanie back when True Blood was popular and they have been friends ever since. She loves TV (especially things that make you smile), Doctor Who, Finding new shows, and regularly provides awesome fandom items for Muser Giveaways. Jennifer is now a proud member of the VIPers - the Melanie's Muses Spotlight Feature Team!
Melanie (Yes Again lol ) - Hmmmmm so I never watched this but now I think I might be tempted! Check out the trailer below and if you want to watch it is available on Disney+. Whilst Disney+ no longer has a free trial it is worth checking with your phone plan, or current TV subscriptions! (Ones that I am aware of - Many Verizon users have free Disney+ for varying lengths (6 Months - All Contract - and Hulu has a lot of bundle packages that include it so it is worth checking).
