It definitely has the undertones of Twilight Zone which is of the same era.That was awesome. I'm so glad they stayed true to the sitcom style, but weren't afraid to play with it a bit. Hearing all the callbacks to the real world was very creepy. Especially when Wanda said Vision had an "indestructible head". This whole thing is like a horror movie in disguise. I found myself creeped out when Mr. Heart started choking. Elizabeth Olsen also did absolutely amazing. The way she switched tones so flawlessly was amazing.
Overall, this was an amazing start. I just know it is going to get way more exciting as we go on.
Yea, it is a bit hard to judge with only 2 shows out. It might have been a better idea to drop the first 4 episodes or more at once. Hopefully casual fans stick with it. I've had a few friends and family ask what the point is. I'm not sure it will hold the casual viewer week to week.It’s ok so far. Hard to judge it without much of a plot thus far.
The slow burn may hurt the show in the long end. people pay for streaming to bin watch. it worked for the mandalorian but people hated it for THE BOYS season 2, and so far not a lot of people like the weekly release idea for this.This is right up my alley and I can't wait to see where things go.
I feel the show is appreciated on at least three levels simultaneously.
First is just going along with the idea that this is a real sitcom.
Second is watching it knowing it isn't and considering all that we know about these characters.
Third is wondering about all the things we don't know.
If it was all put out at once many would have watched all through already. Many would be spoiled. All would be robbed of the fun of speculating.
