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)

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!
