TV Review: WandaVision

Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Wanda Maximoff and Vision are living the idealistic suburban life in Westview, New Jersey while attempting to conceal their powers and backgrounds. Maximoff has the ability to harness magic, telepathy, telekinesis, and alter reality. Vision on the other hand is an android built by Tony Stark and Bruce Banner from the artificial intelligence J.A.R.V.I.S. and Ultron as well as the Mind Stone. Every episode is set within a decade and influences from past TV sitcoms determine the episode’s plot. Starting in the 1950s with influence from I Love Lucy, each episode contains traditional sitcom-like adventures and jokes up until the early 2000s. The episodes also contain parodies of real-life commercials that hold hidden symbolism within the Marvel Universe. Although, Wanda and Vision’s life takes place within its own fictional sitcom, WandaVision, which is broadcasted on television.

I, personally, have been a Marvel fan for years and after seeing Endgame in its opening week I was so shocked and happy to discover the Phase Four plans for Marvel Entertainment. Considering the past year and a half of events, watching WandaVision and being able to see Maximoff and Vision was lightening. I highly recommend this show to anyone who has Disney+ and is a huge Marvel fan like myself.

  1. I haven’t really watched Marvel or Avengers before, but the way you described this show made me interested. I have some friends who watch this show, and I have heard nothing but positive comments about it. The jokes and comedy that you mentioned got me interested in this show because I love hilarious movies and shows. I will definitely add Wanda Vision to my watchlist on Disney Plus. Great review!

  2. I really enjoyed watching WandaVision as well. It was great, and I liked seeing what happened to the characters after Avengers: Endgame. I enjoyed the symbolism in all of the commercials throughout the show and am also excited to see what else will be in Phase 4! Great job!

  3. WandaVision is undoubtedly one of the greatest Marvel series I have ever watched. Honestly, I’m not that great of a Marvel fan, but I agree with you on how interesting the twists are in the series, where they jump between reality and fiction. In my opinion, the show is extremely unique, but also a great gateway into the Marvel universe. Amazing review!
