“You, Vision, are the piece of mind stone that lives in me. You are a body of wires and blood and bone that I created. You are my sadness and my hope. But mostly, you're my love"

Let's talk about WandaVision!

Started off super promising with the sitcom format and I honestly really thought we had a winner on our hands here, but then it all went downhill after episodes 1 - 3. None of the episodes after that had any of the originality and mystery of the first three episodes and felt more like they were made to keep the fans statisfied that complained about not liking the first episodes. Episode 8 genuinely drew me back in and made me excited about the show again and I won't lie and say I didn't enjoy the Halloween episode (I even got myself a Wanda in the Halloween costume funko). However, the final episode was mildly dissapointing and featured the worst action scenes I have witnessed in the MCU so far. Despite that, Wanda & Vision their final scene together was definitely the highlight of the show and would've definitely put some tears in my eyes if my brother wasn't sitting right next to me.

While the negatives definitely outweigh the positives, any MCU content just gives me so much serotonin and I'm really not able to dislike it. But let's talk positives now. While pretty much every character suffered from crappy writing, the actors really did some wonderful work here. Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany finally get their big moments and they're both stunning, but there's one person who truly stole the show: Kathryn Hahn. Not really a shocker, I mean, she has been delivering great performances for so long now. The "Agatha All Along" moment was probably one of my favourite moments of the whole show.

Like I already mentioned, I seriously loved the first three episodes. Creepy, funny, super sweet and just lots of fun to watch. And they completely ruined all of that charm and weirdness with the messy switching back and forth. I'm aware they had to move away from the sitcom format at some point, it was just a bummer to see them do it so early into the show. Episode 8 was really refreshing again and I loved how they went through some key moments in Wanda's life with everything leading up to her tragic arrival to Westview. It definitely had its great moments, but sadly just not enough to make me love it as much as most people do.

While WandaVision may not have sticked the landing due to them rushing through every plotline in the final episode, I sure had a great time for 9 weeks. Wanda deserved a better TV show though. I mean, the sitcom she broadcasted in the series was better!
