Television Quadrant: Wanda Vision

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a review that is worth. Huh? Oh no! (Gets zapped out of the Nerd Satellite)

Wanda Vision

Oh crap! I think I got zapped into the Josie & the Pussy Cats world! A bit fitting! Sorry for the wait guys, I’m here to review Wanda Vision! I know, it’s been a bit, but school and work has had me busy! I will try and get more posts out in the meantime since I have other deadlines to meet! Now onto the disclaimer!

Disclaimer: This review is based on thoughts and opinions by the lead writer of this blog! Please respect her thoughts on this miniseries!

Wanda Vision is the first of many series taking place after Avengers: End Game where we catch up with Wanda and Vision? In a sitcom type life where they’re in a town called West View. Things are a little weird since they go through weird happenings and the scenarios we tend to see on early decades of television. Such as inviting the boss and his wife over for dinner to the community talent show and even having kids! But there is something going on behind the scenes and S. W. O. R. D. is trying to find out if Wanda is pulling the strings or is it someone else?

My thoughts on this series are that I liked the transition that they pulled through the decades. We got the start with a bit of I Love Lucy and then got into Bewitched and even Malcom in the Middle. It was revealed that Wanda grew up on watching sitcoms as a kid with her family so they could learn English which makes sense. Sometimes people learn languages by watching other shows, I think I remembered knowing someone who learned Spanish by watching Spanish dramas most of his life. Anyways, this weas a good follow-up to End Game since the last time we’ve seen Wanda was talking with Hawk Eye about losing Natasha and Vision and this shows what happens next. Also, we finally got to see S. W. O. R. D. because since Agents of S. H. I. E. L. D. we haven’t gotten to see this group yet since Disney wanted to just focus on S. H. I. E. L. D. and glad that they have brought the other half. I wonder if anyone named their Pokémon player characters after any S. H. I. E. L. D. characters, I was tempted but not doing it.

I do have to say is that it was great to see that they brought some of the characters back from other Marvel properties like Darcy from the Thor movies and of course getting to see Monica Rambo from Captain Marvel taking the stage since she did get blipped out of existence for five years during End Game. One thing Richard wished we had done was that there was one point where they brought someone back and don’t want to spoil it if you haven’t seen it. Even though how and why they were brought into it did kind…) rwind!) Huh? What was I saying? Oh yes! This was a good miniseries for Marvel to start with and since now we have Falcon & Winter Soldier now up and running, I want to see more of the Marvel filler series take part since who ken ows we will get back into a movie theater even though they have started opening them on the west coast. Which of course how this series ended will be the jumping point into the next Dr. Strange movie. And of course, some foreshadowing into the Captain Marvel sequel which of course we can’t wait for both of them!

Rating: 5 Shooting Star Paw Prints Out of 5! This was a really good miniseries and a nice start in seeing what had happened to the characters themselves after the five years of being dusted or blipped. We also get to see S. W. O. R. D. take action since their other counterpart has ended with their show and glad to see them in another property. I hope we get to see more of them like how Colson took part in the earlier Marvel movies and add more to the story since we’re supposed to be in the new phase of movies soon. I can’t wait to see what holds for Wanda in Dr. Strange 2 since of course we get to see how things continue due to how her powers manifested throughout this series. Oh yes, more magic action! If you haven’t seen this series yet, definitely check it out on Disney + and of course if you’re visually impaired like me, there is audio description available for this series.

There is one more thing though, I do have to give major props to Paul Betney for reprising his role as Vision. Of course, we get to see newer stuff in this and what Wanda did but I don’t want to give too much away. Still, he knows how to bring the Jarvis into all of his work!

And one more thing, a little tidbit that was interesting and that is since they did pull more of the Dick Van Dyke Show for episode one of this series, the actual Dick Van Dyke did show up and helped out pull off some of the things they did in that episode by help consulting it. Makes sense to have a legend help out with the series since you are basing it off of old television sitcoms.

Well, that is it for this review! I better get out of this set; I wonder where the satellite is! Moonbeam! Beam me up! (Nothing happened!) Great, we’re stuck! Next will be my BoxyCharm for this month!

Beauty Quadrant: Empties 2021 Part 1

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a new post!

Empties 2021 Session 1

Time again for some empties! I am sorry for not doing the review round up because I was really busy and I feel that I didn’t use that many products from my subscriptions either. So, moving to empties to fill that void. So, I finished some products these past months and glad to do so since I also have a few food items to include!

S. E. Cleansing Water: First up is a cleansing water from S. E. which is one of the brands from Ipsy. I got this in a bundle and I think I used the moisturizer in this brand or maybe using it at the moment. Not sure since our bathroom cabinet is a mess. This was a pretty good product. It did get my makeup off very well and didn’t dry my face out. I didn’t like how it slightly irritate my eyes even while keeping them closed but not bad of a product. I am glad I tried this out when I did and if they do have this in a bundle, I may pick it up again.

Skin Iceland Cloud Cream: Next is a moisturizer from Skin Iceland and it’s their Cloud Cream which also came in a bundle that Ipsy had. I found this product stung a little despite the claim that it works on sensitive skin people. I found it weird that it did that which I can see why if some of the products I was also using caused that reaction too, but I’m glad I got to try it which I’m not sure if I will try it again even if it’s on 21 Days of Beauty, which their eye gels tend to be placed on that sale due to how pricey this brand is. This moisturizer was even up there in price on its own. Again, not sure if I want to try it again.

Formula 10.06 Face Primer with SPF: Next up is a primer I finished from Formula 10.06 and man it was a bit greasy and spit out a way bit too much for my liking. I found this while trying to find my favorite Formula 10.06 items on Ulta but they were no longer carried there so I decided why not try this out since I didn’t unpack my daily makeup items and this item was okay but it squeezed way too much product in the tube. Would be better if it was in a pot than a tube so I can have better control over this thing. So, won’t be buying this again!

Dose of Colors Liquid Lipstick in Chocolate Wasted: Next up is a liquid lipstick from Dose of Colors and I felt like this finished a little too fast since I did like it a lot and it’s the shade Chocolate Wasted. I remembered Jen Luv mentioned this as her favorite shade and I do like wearing a dark brown lip sometimes to be a bit out of the box. Plus, it sometimes gives me a bit of a goth look with my shadow looks. I will definitely buy this shade again!

NYX Shine Loud Lipstick in On A Mission: Next up is another lip product and this time from NYX. I got into their Shine Loud Liquid Lipsticks due to how long they can stay even under a medical mask because so many people have to wear masks even after vaccination and finding that lipstick to stay can be hard. Just as the pandemic continues NYX had that answer and I found it in Allure. When they advertised this, I had to try it and it’s basically like the Rimmel lippies with the shiny topcoat and the lipstick color and glad that they did make these because I think Rimmel stopped making their items since I loved those. I did find that this finished up too quickly with the lipstick end and it was the shade On A Mission since I tend to wear the blue red for work. I will be getting another one of these. I do have a few other shades from this line since I did try two of them, which was this one and a blue one, now got their peacock green ones and another in a nude one. This one was my most used one for work so I will be buying another one!

BH New Foods Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bites: Now onto my food items! First up is an item from BH New Foods. I have been trying out different keto variety of snacks and foods and this was one of them. When I used to go to movies, I always loved getting the chocolate covered cookie dough bites almost every movie. These are bigger and better and buttery! I mean is that these taste like you’re eating them out of the bowl and took dark chocolate and covered them in it. You get two pouches of these in each order and I want to go back for the chocolate peanut butter since peanut butter is keto friendly. Ha! Take that hungry girl! Sorry about that! Next!

Pink Panda Candy Astro Blaster Pack: No, I’m not talking about the weapons from Power Rangers in Space but these are candies I got from a new candy brand called Pink Panda Candy and one of the packs I got is their sour candies called Astro Blasters and if you love sour candies, I suggest these because they’re low in sugar and plant based and not too sour. That is what I found about most sour candies is that they can be a bit too much but these aren’t like that, they kind of feel like space themed Sour Patch Kids in a way. I would take these anywhere because they are in portion-controlled pouches and you get eight of them in a pack for around $16. I will definitely buy these again!

Seaweed Snacks in Wasabi and Sea Salt: Next up is some seaweed snacks I got from Amazon. I got two flavors in different packs of course. I got the ones in sea salt and wasabi. The both of them really good. I did get more in teriyaki flavor which I can’t wait to try. Amazon is a good place for keto and low carb items.

Well, I think that’s about it. I’m glad to do these empties because I get to know what I like and be able to share what I finished up. I am currently on my low buy for this year which is good. I’m doing better this year than the last actually and of course I am trying new diet foods along the way. Let’s see how that goes. Next up is my review on Wanda Vision to keep reviews going! Stay tuned!
