Just seen the first two episodes of this over the last couple of days. It's taking its time getting going, but is quite intriguing, I think. Though the characters seem to be kind of reversals of their original comics incarnations, Tandy Bowen now being basically a rich girl gone bad and Tyrone Johnson not half as much of a nerd and from a rather more stable background than I seem to remember Bill Mantlo's version being. On the whole, I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops...

Not having seen this, I thought you were going to say they gave her the darkness/Cloak powers and he would have had the light/Dagger powers.

I just bought it on Amazon (the price went up $3 for the season since yesterday!) and I'm looking forward to it.
Now to find the time...

Is that a streaming thing (ugh) or is it available on DVD?

I can see the advantages, but having that obsessive collector mentality, if I like something I want a physical product. I could never buy digital comics.

I get that, in that I want to OWN what I own, and with electronic products you don't. But, I have NO ROOM for more, and (if I'm honest) ebooks and such tend to be cheaper (though not always) and so I can get more of them with my money.

There's always a way. In the corner of our living room is atable, under a white cloth, with a rather nice display stand on it. Except it's not a table; under the cloth are six boxes of comics, heavily disguised. I haven't yet replaced the base of the bed with comic boxes, but hey, it's always a possibility... Very Happy

I want to die peacefully in my sleep on the day I retire, because I can't afford a decent pension.

Well, as for Marvel tv series, is someone watching Wanda Vision episodes now? I do not because I don't have Disney + now, sure I can apply for a 6-month trial in my country, but I have to change Tv/buy Chromecast before... Rolling Eyes

I'm not.

I don't have Disney +, and don't have a burning desire for access to it, either. I don't watch much current TV myself and I'm more likely to watch older syndicated TV shows that have not produced new episodes for a few years (sometimes decades).

We are watching it, and absolutely loving it. It's weird but quite wonderful, the most experimental thing Marvel have ever done on TV, but it's really intriguing and clearly building towards something big. It apparently connects in some way to the next Dr. Strange movie, and it's already introduced (or reintroduced) several characters to the MCU who are clearly going to be significant going forward, including
Spoiler:
Monica Rambeau
and, in a really unexpected move,
Spoiler:
Quicksilver from the Fox X-Men movies
.

I agree, entirely. We binge-watched it over the weekend, and it was really interesting. I hope it pays off, because there's a lot there!

Lucy actually got me the Disney+ subscription for Christmas just so that we could watch this and The Mandalorian.

You should definitely thank her. We watched The Madalorian and it was very good. Kind of a western, kind of Lone Wolf and Cub, but just very well told. And it was distant enough from the main Star Wars stories you didn't have to know them, but still conmected.
I am excited to see where Wandavision goes.

DC needs to put more effort into the video material.

I guess so, especially after watching some episodes of "Legends of Tomorrow"... Very Happy

Loved the first season of The Mandalorian, too! Cool
Btw, are you guys "satisfied" after the season finale of WandaVision? Wink

Spoiler:
I am. I thought it was a fitting ending for the show. They didn't leave any loose ends of note, although you can see it leading to another movie (Dr. Strange I think). And I thought it did a great job of dealing with the central character issues they were developing.

I HOPE that isn't a spoiler if anyone hasn't see it.
