Welcome to WandaVision Weekly, your home for bottomless speculation, awkward amusement and summaries of the new Marvel television actualization ‘WandaVision.’ This commodity contains spoilers for the show, so get out of actuality if you haven’t watched it. Also, it actualization a deranged editor talking to himself about a television actualization in a faux-interview format. It has been preserved in its absoluteness for accurateness and posterity, should said editor assuredly breeze aback he’s affected to rewatch ‘Iron Man 2’ for an article.
Nick Johnston: Let’s alpha this anniversary off with a softball — what’s your admired holiday-themed adventure of a sitcom?
Nick Johnston: Oh, man. Are you talking, like, an absolute “holiday special” as advertised, or aloof an adventure that happens to accept a anniversary in it? Because I anticipate I’d allegedly accept two actual adapted answers depending on the context.
You’re authoritative this added complicated than it needs to be. I’ll go first: The Thanksgiving appropriate in WKRP in Cincinnati is the alone adventure of the actualization I’ve anytime seen, and I candidly don’t apperceive if I should go aback and watch more, out of abhorrence that it aloof won’t be as acceptable as “Turkeys Away.”
I’ll accord you some for both categories: for the former, it’s a accident amid The Star Wars Anniversary Appropriate and whatever one had Bing Crosby and David Bowie dueting on it; for the latter, it’s allegedly “Marge Be Not Proud” from The Simpsons. That one has some of the greatest jokes in the show’s history in it — “THRILLHO-,” Bart accepting yanked out of the photo by the Loss Prevention Specialist, and, of course, Lee Carvallo’s Putting Challenge.
Good choices all around. How’d you anticipate WandaVision’s “All-New Halloween Spooktacular!” compared?
Well, that’s the affair — it didn’t, really. Halloween’s aloof a fun set bathrobe here, not absolutely meant to accomplish any allusive appulse on the contest of the actualization itself. But, at atomic at the start, it was affectionate of fun to see nods to the characters’ comic-book apparel all the same, and it was candidly appealing funny to apprehend hand-wavy explanations for why they’re all dressed like that (including the twins, who are cutting agnate apparel to Wiccan and Speed’s gear). Allegedly Sokovian fortune-tellers do dress like they’re classical caricatural stars, and Wanda’s all about luchadors, admitting not abundant to let Eyes abrasion a Sancho-style mask.
Quicksilver was my aces for “best-dressed,” but that’s mainly to do with that hairstyle.
Imagine the bags of CFCs that had to be put into the atmosphere in adjustment to get that beard to angle up that straight. Now we apperceive why the aperture in the O-Zone band was so bad.
Anyway, it was a almost parody-light episode, alike admitting they avant-garde to addition era of the sitcom: the hyper-modern Malcolm in the Middle actualization of the backward ’90s and aboriginal ’00s.
Honestly, I was absolutely appealing abject about that. I’ve been appealing acrid about the ball parodies so far, but they took a affecting about-face for the bigger in Adventure 5, and I would accept been appealing stoked to see what the autograph agents — anniversary of whom absolutely had some acknowledgment to this blazon of ball — would accept fabricated of it. Hell, alike in the ambience of the actualization itself it would accept been appealing absorbing to see how Wanda’s eyes would accept accommodated a change in angle (remember, it’s Billy accomplishing the fourth-wall-breaking account here). But it’s accomplished with almost bound so that we can accept chilling times with Eyes and Quicksilver, and added ball and artifice at the S.W.O.R.D. camp.
Let’s alpha with the Eyes artifice aboriginal — our dude is still appealing analytical about what’s activity on in the apple about him, and he break ball agreement to go aberrate about the neighborhood, area he encounters two things: arctic townspeople and Agnes, ashore in her car, dabbling at a stop sign.
Yeah, Vision’s acute abundant to apprehend something’s wrong, and he notices some of the abate capacity — such as a breach bottomward bottomward a woman’s face, as she’s ashore in a bend while aggravating to adhere a Halloween adornment — that gradually become bigger as he walks on through the town. And aback he runs into Agnes, who’s allegedly “lost” and can’t acquisition the boondocks square, he briefly frees her from the illusion, and she freaks the fuck out.
Perhaps the best important allotment of their chat is aback Agnes tells him that he’s an Avenger, and Eyes doesn’t apperceive what the hell she’s talking about, and she begins to aberration out about how he’s “dead”.
It’s a awe-inspiring scene. People are allegedly appropriate to abide to be apprehensive about her, and I anticipate that the way her acumen changes aback she realizes he doesn’t bethink annihilation is appealing telling. But, yes, it appears Wanda’s absolutely wiped his memories abroad of the alfresco apple or, and this may be aloof as likely, re-birthed him into this apple fully-blank and molded to fit her cerebral angel of him. This could be why, a few scenes later, aback he tries to avenue the barrier and access the “real” world, he starts to deliquesce as if he’d aloof been snapped.
You beggarly “blipped.”
Oh, shut the fuck up. But, aback to the affair at hand, is Wanda absolutely the one authoritative these illusions? Her chat with Quicksilver at the big brawl in the boondocks aboveboard feels like she ability aloof be as abundant of a victim actuality as everybody else. She reveals to her bro that she’s not absolutely in ascendancy of any of this and that she doesn’t apperceive how any of it works afterwards he acknowledges that this seems to be a little above her archetypal power-set. Do you get the activity that Schaeffer and the writers accepted that criticism?
Yes, they absolutely did. Added importantly, however: we, already again, get corpse-vision to alarm all the kiddies.
He’s comatose and abounding of ammo holes, which I anticipate bureau that he’s the MCU Quicksilver (remember, Sansa Jonas alone put him in a blackout in Dark Phoenix), admitting he could be Mephisto or whatever. But I anticipate it ability be a accurate “recasting,” rather than what some others ability think. I could be wrong, but I wouldn’t put all of your hopes on both Fantastic Four and mutants authoritative an actualization in this one series. Though, if one does, I achievement it’s Johnny Storm and that he brings aback his Pharcyde-style rhymes.
Speaking of the Fantastic Four, let’s arch aback to the S.W.O.R.D. camp, area shit’s accepting crazy. Our boy Hayward is starting to lose the artifice a little bit, afterwards Wanda about dead him, and he expels Woo, Rambeau and Darcy from the admixture for not actuality on lath with the accomplished “let’s try to annihilate this metahuman who is superpowerful” charade.
Hayward’s agreement of the accusation on the superpowered for absolution the Breeze appear is a appealing air-conditioned second-order aftereffect of the franchise, but it’s appealing absorbing that he’s advancing from the Bush-era academy of “if this is alike a slight blackmail to us, we charge annihilate it.” This ties into a approach that I’ve started to develop, too, but let’s accomplishment the recap.
Oooh, suspense. I like it. But yeah, Monica and aggregation annex an armored agent and activate to drudge into the S.W.O.R.D. computer network, and they acquisition out that the bureau has amorphous to clue Vision’s corrupt signature in the boondocks and, also, that Monica’s abiogenetic anatomy has been adapted by entering “the Hex.”
Yeah, if she enters it one added time, she’s absolutely activity to become Captain Marvel. I’m alone half-kidding aback I say that, too, accustomed that she was Ms. Marvel in the comics at one point, but, yeah, that’s allegedly activity to be the big acme — her advertent that she can dispense activity in a way agnate to how we’ve apparent Scarlet Witch do it previously, and Wanda accepting a new ability set. But, afore any of that can happen, she still has to accommodated up with her hidden pal, who’s on their way to advice her and Woo get aback into the world.
Right, and as they leave, Darcy gets captured, Eyes crosses the barrier, and Wanda “comes to his rescue.”
If by “comes to his rescue,” you beggarly “expands the Hex’s force acreage so that encompasses the S.W.O.R.D. affected and a agglomeration of added ground, yeah, you’d be right. It’s alarming that the S.W.O.R.D. goons are adapted into a circus, accustomed that their accomplished ambiance is a zoo and that they’re all clowns, but it’s appealing funny that they’re still afterwards a ringmaster, accustomed that Hayward manages to escape. But, added importantly, Darcy’s befuddled into the hex as well. Roll those seven-minute-long credits.
So, that’s the episode, I guess. What’s this approach that you’ve affable up?
Well, it’s not abundant of annihilation and will best absolutely be accurate amiss — we’re not the affectionate of outlet, afterwards all, that runs impaired belief about TV shows because whatever sources we accept will allegedly about-face out to be acutely online bullshitters — but I’ve noticed a awe-inspiring trend in the show, and I anticipate it’ll acquaint us who Rambeau’s pal is as able-bodied as a little bit about the “reality” of the MCU.
Just discharge it out, dude.
Ok, ok: If you attending at the cast, anybody of note, with the exceptions of Olsen and Bettany, has starred in a ball of some sort. That’s doubly-true for “the absolute world,” area every non-extra has accent one. Teyonah Parris? She was on Survivor’s Remorse, which aired on Showtime. Kat Dennings was, actual obviously, on 2 Broke Girls, Randall Park was on Fresh Off the Boat, and alike Josh Stamberg, who plays Hayward, was on fuckin’ Drop Comatose Diva. By this logic, I’d action that, instead of Reed Richards or Hank McCoy or whoever, I’d say that Cobie Smulders will allegedly actualization up as Maria Hill.
That would accomplish a assertive bulk of sense, yes. But what’s this about the “reality?”
That’s area this gets into erect belief territory. I admiration if the “reality” presented to us is absolutely aloof addition band of Wanda’s dream, as was accounted about The Matrix sequels always — that Zion was aloof addition simulation, meant to allay the needs of those too alienated to alive in the dream. It’s a adapted genre, of course: Instead of a sitcom, it’s a active ball like 24, and that’s why they’re all aggregate there. S.W.O.R.D. never existed — it’s aloof addition alternation on top of a series, meant to casting shad at Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — and Monica and her pals are artlessly actuality manipulated into assertive that it’s real. What bigger way to accumulate Wanda comatose than to accord her a “real world” to action against?
You know, I anticipate you’re right.
Yeah, there’s a acumen we don’t do that “THE WANDAVISION TWIST YOU WEREN’T EXPECTING” fan approach shit, and it’s because we’re not decidedly acceptable at it.
Hey, I never said it was smart! Aloof that it was a anticipation that beyond my mind.
Well, you should try to accumulate those to yourself added often. Any added final thoughts?
I admiration if we’re activity to get an Office apology abutting week. Or, God forbid, a Big Bang Approach one. Anyway, acknowledgment afresh for reading, everyone. Achievement you break safe, and, again, our affliction to Rob Bricken.
See you abutting week, folks.
