I wish that there was something I could say that would indicate that I liked this show any more than I do. I cannot say that I love it, I’m not even sure I like it, but I’m watching it? So I guess I’ll talk about it.
Something the MCU has done extremely well is bring a bunch of B/C-listers together and make them stars. The A-list of the Marvel comics is Spiderman and the X-Men (really just Wolverine, I’m being generous here). Captain America is a B+ and the Fantastic Four might warrant an A- but that’s basically it. These movies brought out all the schmucks and made them matter, made them the A-listers of our generation. Scattered among Thor and Hulk and ~Black Widow~ (don’t get me started) are the D-listers, namely The Vision and Scarlet Witch. I barely cared about them in the movies (as previously stated) and so this tv show, while interesting, is not gripping me.
Vision and SW are fighting because he knows something isn’t right but she’s trying to maintain the fantasy. His consciousness is slipping through her fingers and becoming independent, even to the point that he tries to escape the hex to get help for the people inside. Wanda is walking around a suddenly children-filled Westview with her kids (who now have superpowers) and her “brother” Pietro when the one with the mind powers says he can hear their dad in pain. Wanda blows up the Hex, expanding it and capturing some Sword agents in her wake, creating a carnival on the edge of town (Darcy is inside too now, so hopefully she’ll be able to talk some sense into someone).
Why does the leader of SWORD want Vision’s body? Who cares? Why doesn’t Wanda just give up? Have you ever been a grieving woman? I get that part, but at episode 6 it’s wearing a little thin. I’m bored, and I’m not even interested in the sitcom premise anymore. I need more information, I need to know where this is going. I’m not going to stop watching, but gosh, we’re almost to the end and I could use a little payoff.
