WandaVision TV Series Review

You probably don't know this about me, but I'm a huge Marvel fan. If you've been keeping up with the franchise, you might know that they've released two series in 2021, with a third one coming! WandaVision is the first of these two, a 9-episode series about Wanda Maximoff resurrecting her husband and living with him in a town she bewitched and is fully in control of. 

The idea of this show was one of the most notable things about it. It had a strong beginning and middle, but a weak ending. Marvel tried to fit a big plot into a 9 episode series, resulting in rushed pacing. What would have made this show perfect for me would be a much larger episode count, with the sit-com episodes in the first season, and then the problems with the town occurring in the second. 

The characters were another big highlight of WandaVision. Wanda, Vision, Darcy, Agent Woo, and Monica were a diverse cast of characters, having individual personalities and backstories. 

The ending was weak because it introduced a villain we didn't know about and had to rush through the backstory of. The fight scenes also didn't make much sense because the motive was not clear, nor determined throughout the previous episodes of the series.

I give this show 4 stars out of 5 because of the plot of the beginning through middle, the characters, and the fact that every episode was highly enjoyable until episode 8. 

I had a great experience watching this. My expectations were high, and for the most part WandaVision delivered. Marvel already has out their second Disney+ series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (review coming soon), and I'm excited to see what they do with the rest of the shows they have planned.
