WandaVision S1E1 Review
Here’s my WandaVision S1E1 review, the series is now streaming on Disney+. It stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany who reprises their roles as Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch and Vision.
The episode is as vague as can be with Wanda and revived Vision starting a new life in a town called Westview. Here they start their “married” life in a picture perfect world. But things are starting to unravel before it even begins with the pair not knowing things which becomes painfully obvious by the end of the episode.
I liked that Marvel Studios stuck their guns with the theme of sticking these two in a sitcom-esque world. We were treated to a black and white episode with some neat twists and visuals here and there.
WandaVision has given me more interest in MCU Wanda and make me actually care about her and Vision as early as the pilot.
Another thing to love about WandaVision S1E1 is the fact that it has so much layers to it. One layer tells a linear story, another has that deeper subplot with all the questions and easter eggs. There’s just so many questions here that they don’t want to answer just yet. Instead, they want to expand on those questions to get more fans talking and that’s a good thing. Everybody wants a good mystery after all.
The production value is another thing worth talking about. They did a three camera setup for this episode, a staple in sitcom production back in the 50s and 60s. The set was also absurdly detailed and it looks like Marvel Studios spared no expense.
One concern that I have for other viewers is the fact that they may not understand the series especially younger viewers who aren’t aware of classic TV sitcoms. They may not know what “Bewitched” or “I Dream of Jeanie” is. But still that’s something that could be researched and read at a glance.
