Wanda and Vision are an unusual couple, and that’s a given due to the trailers leading up to the sitcom’s release, but there is a lot of stuff in “WandaVision” that I love.
If you have not watched the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), which spans from “Iron Man” in 2008 to “Spider-Man: Far From Home” in 2019, paying particular attention to the “Avengers: Infinity Saga,” you would feel a bit lost watching this show.
“WandaVision” follows the American sitcom tropes from the 1950s to the present day, or as close to it as possible. There is also an everlasting mystery in the show that I want to know more about.
“WandaVision” references several classic sitcoms, such as “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” “Bewitched” and “The Brady Bunch.” I don’t know what will happen in the next few sitcom eras and shows that will be covered in WandaVision, and that’s where the mystery dwells in the show. There are also references to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, like characters and voices we have seen in phases 1-3 of it.
If you get the sitcom references as I did, you will enjoy it immensely. I think, judging by what I’ve seen so far, it’s definitely PG-13 as there are some parts that parental supervision is needed if kids don’t understand it yet.
There are also some moments in there that I wouldn’t recommend your kids watching and some foul language in the show that you wouldn’t want them listening to if they’re not at least teenagers. However, this is going off the first three episodes, and I don’t know what will happen next in the rest of the nine episode series. “WandaVision” is the start of phase 4 of the MCU. You have the likes of Wanda and Vision, two characters you should be very familiar with if you follow the MCU. Anything could happen in “WandaVision,” and I like it so far, even if the pacing is a little bit slow.
“WandaVision” takes spontaneity to a whole other level and is unlike anything we’ve seen in the MCU so far. The show is worth watching if you’re a huge fan of MCU, American sitcoms and Wanda’s and Vision’s romantic relationship. I love this show and I’m looking forward to what it has to offer in the rest of the episodes leading up to the season finale on Mar. 5, 2021.
“WandaVision” is available exclusively on Disney+.
