    14 MCU (TV) So Far: WandaVision/Falcon and the Winter Soldier

    No new episode this week, so the MCU TV Crew chats about the first two shows from Disney+. A bit of compare and contrast, and a discussion of how these fit into the larger universe, as well as where that universe is going. (Yes, there’s a tiny bit of “REALLY!?” too.) Questions or feedback?

    Don your winged jetpack and strap on your cybernetic arm, because it’s time to fight over a shield. Marvel’s second Disney+ series, “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” picks up the story of two of Captain America’s pals as they confront serious societal issues, the representation of America in the modern age, and a gaggle of super-powered foes. It’s a show that takes some big swings, even if it does get a bit muddled, and we discuss its ambitions, what it gets right, and where it misses the mark.

    13 The Falcon and the Winter Soldier E6: One World, One People

    Back for the finale! Kelly, Don, and Lisa fail to come up with a clever title for the show this week, and were glad for the assist. There’s a dive into Marvel Comic history with Professor Melton during the popular “REALLY?!” segment, and speculation about where we’re headed next. In true comic book fashion, Don casually drops at least two personal tidbits that could be podcasts of their own.

    5 Kombat of the Captain in Winter

    This is a packed episode, as Moze and Sam talk about films you may want to fit into your life. They also break down and grade how well Sam and Bucky succeeded in their efforts to solve the repopulation “blip” problems. What exactly were these conflicts, anyway? And what may have led to audience confusion?

    This week, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier—if that really is your title!—barrel rolls towards an uneven landing. We discuss impressive stunts, awkward character beats, and whether some punches ultimately get pulled. Plus, what’s next?

    Everyone has their own training montage in this one! Don, Kelly, and Lisa gear up and dig deep into the penultimate episode of The Falcon, The Winter, and The Wardrobe. We have some theories, but also a metric ton of knowledge from Professor Melton in REALLY!?

    It’s the calm before the storm on this week’s episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. We discuss what the heck that one senator’s job is, whether we’ve seen the last of Zemo, and our spin-off pitch, This Old Boat. Plus, a very quick take on the new Shang-Chi trailer.

    Zemo was a Turkish Delight this week as Don, Kelly, and Lisa dive into the latest episode of The Falcon, The Witch, and The Wardrobe! Theories abound in “Really!?” as Lisa and Kelly get more Marvel lore, and once again there’s some accidental creating of more Marvel TV shows.

    4 Johnny Walker and Calls to His Ever-Growing Beard

    Sam & Moze take a look at how a show can spark other, maybe bigger, conversations. With so much content, picking the wheat from chaff can be a challenge. Moze lays down a hammer as he pleads for you to take a multiverse gander at Calls on AppleTV+.

    It gets intense on this week’s episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier as we have multiple showdowns. We discuss John Walker’s increasing twitchiness, an action- and meaning-packed fight scene, and why you should never trust a creepily-singing stranger handing out candy.

    No soulgazing this week! Don, Lisa, and Kelly return (after a slight “serum related” delay) for the midpoint of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Can’t Be Friends” with the Ritual Offering of the Recap, Reactions to the episode, and “Really!?” with Lisa and Kelly. There’s even time for a bit of looking ahead to the second half of the season. Feel free to hit up @IWantMyMCUtv on Twitter with your theories and feedback!

    3 Piles of Bits Smothered in Content

    There has been a bit of news this week, so we’ve plowed into it. Was “Godzilla vs. Kong” high art? Can a six-part show like “Falcon and Winter Solider” have time to create a sag in the middle of the season? All this and more covered on this week’s episode.

    Let us explain: no, there is too much. It’s a packed episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier this week, and not always for the better. We take on the identity of the titular character, a bar scene that makes no sense, and what exactly the show wants us to think about the Flag Smashers.

    We relate to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and not just because the lead characters constantly aggravate one another. This week, we discuss the newly minted “White Cap”, our heroes hatred for sidewalks, and Bucky hitting the nail on the head.

    Sam and Moze look at some news like the “Black Widow” release, the cancelation of one of Moze’s beloved shows, “Superstore,” and upcoming seasons of some new programs like “MODOK” and the returning “Solar Opposites.” We also break down highlights of “Falcon and Winter Soldier” as well as comparing “WW84” to “Wandavision.”

    32 Legends of Tomorrow S5E3: "Slay Anything"

    It’s prom night in the 2000s and the ’80s this week, as we recap a Legends of Tomorrow episode that pays homage to classic horror movies. We discuss automatic trope subversion, the characters you can’t help but love, and the sheer delight that Ray Palmer takes in crudités. Then, in our Superhero Sweep segment, we discuss our glimpses of the upcoming Marvel series on Disney+, as well as brief discussions of DC’s Shazam! and Birds of Prey. Then, in our Letters Page, a last goodbye to Arrow and some thoughts on its potential spinoff.

    Lian Yu will live forever in our hearts, so why not get a commemorative t-shirt?
