The first season of Legend of Vox Machina left off on a significant cliffhanger – Vox Machina had overcome the Briarwoods and liberated Whitestone – and had succeeded at their first major act of deliberate heroism. However, the Chroma Conclave were literally on the doorstep. Season 2 kicks off the start of the Chroma Conclave arc.

These past few Marvel TV series have been generally alright. I checked out of What If with the zombies’ episode (as I’m generally wholly done with Zombies with a small handful of exceptions), but otherwise have enjoyed the MCU TV series. So, Moon Knight, starring Oscar Isaac, has recently concluded, and I figure I should give my thoughts on that. There will be some spoilers below the cut.

Season 1 of the Critical Role animated series, Legend of Vox Machina, has finished airing on Amazon Prime, and I have seen all of it. So, I’d like to give my thoughts – in the interest of full disclosure, I did back the series on Kickstarter.

The Book of Boba Fett, when it was set up at the conclusion of the second season of The Mandalorian, was intriguing. The lead-in was setting up the idea of Boba Fett becoming the new crime boss of Tatooine. The final product, however, has left many underwhelmed, and it’s worth talking about why.

This time I’m taking a look at the two previous MCU TV series from Disney+ in advance of next month’s release of Loki. Part 1 will be covering WandaVision, and Part 2 will be covering Falcon & The Winter Soldier.

If WandaVision was an experiment within an experiment, Falcon and the Winter Soldier is a much more conventional limited TV series. It’s still very much a MCU work, with the higher budgets that come with a show like this. However, if you were expecting some more standard superheroic action, this is certainly the show for that. That said, this is, when all is said and done, a show in the vein of the Captain America movies, and like Cap’s comics counterpart, while all comics are political to some degree, Captain America comes to the table planning to be overtly political, with things to say, so to really discuss this show, I’m going to have to say upfront, I’m going to have to get into spoilers – starting below the cut.

WandaVision is the first part of Marvel’s new initiative for incorporating TV series into the MCU. Rather than the long ongoing series like Agents of Shield, or more street-level series that are superheroic but smaller in scope than the Netflix series, these are more limited series that are more limited in scope, while also involving some of the actual Avengers.

There will be spoilers below the cot.
