WandaVision Episode 2 – Don’t Touch That Dial Review

WandaVision Episode 2 – Don’t Touch That Dial Review

Where the first episode found its inspiration in the early fifties sitcom setting, “WandaVision” episode two leaps forward a decade and takes a decidedly ‘Bewitch’-ing approach, right down to the animated – and yes, Easter-Egg packed – opening titles. Hoping to better engage with their friends and neighbours, Wanda (Elizabeth Olson) and Vision (Paul Bettany) ..

WandaVision Episode 8 – Previously On Review

While it may have wrongfooted some viewers who were expecting the fireworks to begin – fireworks which are most definitely on their way – PREVIOUSLY ON is a surprisingly quiet episode – a quiet which Gandalf would no doubt observe as “the deep breath before the plunge”. Not only does it give WANDAVISION the opportunity ..

WandaVision Episode 9 – The Series Finale Review

So here we are at last. Nine weeks seem to have flown by as Marvel Studios have served up, piece by piece, one of their boldest, most emotional and most fascinating productions yet.

WandaVision Episode 4 – We Interrupt This Program Review

With events last week reaching a crisis point in Westview last week, all eyes were on the fourth episode of WANDAVISION to see how the story would be continued.

WandaVision Episode 3 – Now In Colour Review

We leap forward to the happy, clappy, “Now In Colour” seventies in this week’s Westview wackiness but while the style may have changed – hello “The Brady Bunch” and the decade turned, we pick up exactly where we left off last week with Wanda newly(ish) pregnant and with the nesting instinct in full swing. While ..

WandaVision Episode 6 – All-New Halloween Spooktacular! Review

WandaVision Episode 6 – All-New Halloween Spooktacular! Review

The dizzying pace of WANDAVISION continues as we effectively skip the 1990s and crash into the 21st-century sitcom stylings of MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE. ALL-NEW HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR!’s credits boast a couple of surprises themselves, with a conspicuous addition to the roster – and no I’m not talking about Pietro Maximoff’s still-puzzling presence. For all its ..

WandaVision Episode 5 – On A Very Special Episode… Review

It’s getting harder and harder to write these up without divulging some of the interesting and intriguing things that are being revealed. I’ll still try not to give too much about ON A VERY SPECIAL EPISODE… away but, with a heavy heart, I’m going to slap this post with a warning for… ***SPOILERS & SPECULATION*** ..

WandaVision Episode 7 – Breaking The Fourth Wall Review

WandaVision Episode 7 – Breaking The Fourth Wall Review

While the big revelation of the episode might be something most of us have been expecting, BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL has much more than that up its sleeve. With the six episodes so far having been meditations not only on grief but also finding something to say about each era of sitcom it’s touched upon ..

WandaVision Episode 1 – Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience Review

WandaVision Episode 1 – Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience Review

Filmed before a live studio audience, the first episode of “WandaVision” seems purposefully – and mischievously – designed to catch its audience completely off-guard. A monochromatic (for the most part) homage to the likes of “I Love Lucy” and “The Dick Van Dyke Show”, its twee 1950s suburban setting, replete with all the trappings of ..
