    I mean, I think the premise of Falcon/Winter Soldier is just less interesting on it's face. There was a huge mystery/intrigue factor with Wanda Vision (plus the sitcom gimmick in the beginning) that just isn't really present here. If other people are anything like me (seems unlikely) the lack of interest is just because the show doesn't seem all that exciting (and to be honest I don't think the cast is as strong either).

    Agreed... Falcon/WS is just a very straight-forward show. Wandavision, there was a LOT to talk about and theorize about.

    Yep.

    There are some nice aspects of F&WS, though. I applaud Disney/Marvel for going straight at the racial angles - the commentary on racial issues was often pretty explicit, or at least can't-miss-it references, something they've tended to avoid, while not being over-the-top farcical - it might have been tempting to make Walker a racist caricature, for instance.

    It's also notable that they've tried to make a villain (Carli) with real motivation, beyond the usual power-hungry, evil, greedy monster - ok, Thanos has a supposed philosophy, but c'mon. Unfortunately I don't think it's come off that well - they were calling her "radicalized" by the last episode, but she doesn't really seem that different - she and the Flag-smashers have been acting pretty much the same throughout. Compare that to Walker's development, for instance, and it comes up pretty short.

    Couple random thoughts/questions while waiting for the last episode:

    I think Sam gets a ďcap suitĒ that makes him strong enough to compete with the supers. Hence, the box.

    Yeah, thatís all he really needs. A nice super suit to go along with the shield. I think there is a 0% chance they give him the heart-shaped herb.

    Good final episode with some interesting loose threads.

    I think that whole storyline could have been left on the cutting room floor.

    I thought overall it wrapped up very well, and unlike Wandavision, it could easily have a second season.

    Ehhhh... they took two of the least interesting characters in the MCU and made a mildly interesting story about them. It was fine but nothing special.

    I too was quite put off by the person who was the Power Broker and felt it did not make any sense at all. I am sure it will turn out that whole thing plays into the Secret Invasion storyline but it was still poorly executed in this program.

    They could have left out all the Madripoor stuff, all the stuff involving Sam's family boat, and a couple other side plots and easily had enough for a movie. There wasn't enough here for a TV show... and it showed.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.
