Thoughts on WandaVision

After the hype of the finale, I decided that I would finally give WandaVision a go. I had seen some early clips and decided it wasn’t for me, but I had nothing to do today so I thought I’d binge the whole series in one go.

Without including spoilers, here are my overall thoughts of each episode:

  1. Painful
  2. Painful
  3. Slightly less painful.
  4. I think this could actually turn out to be quite interesting.
  5. Interesting but weird.
  6. Still weird, but I’m increasingly intrigued.
  7. The weirdest so far.
  8. An interesting turn of events. Things are starting to make sense. Probably the first time I became fully invested in the series.
  9. What an incredible episode.

Here were my thoughts after 7 episodes:

  • After the first three episodes, I was constantly questioning whether something was a joke or not
  • The first episodes were dull, and I think could have been reduced to 5 minutes.
  • Because the early episodes were so weird, I was on edge for the rest of the series.
  • I’m not a fan of the cheesy and cheery type of show that I think it’s meant to be mimicking, so this could be a reason why it didn’t click that much with me early on.
  • There are moments where I think it could get interesting, but they’re surrounded with so much filler.

But episode 8 was when it really kicked into gear. That’s when I started to find it really interesting, and I was actually gripped for once. And episode 9 was absolutely incredible. These two episodes made up for everything I found boring in the first 7.

I’m actually now excited to see where the storyline continues.
