I was very pleased to see one particular individual at the end but it will mean f- all to non comicbook readers.Another slow burn but without the weirdness of WandaVision. There's obviously something here with the powered individuals. But WandaVision's weirdness got heavy discussion. Loki's show looks like it could be a little weird and pretty interesting. So I think they might need to do something each week to keep some peoples attention. What happened to the shield is a good start.
If you are talking about JW then we've known he was coming for months now because of pictures of him on the set. I only know about his story because once those pictures leaked, it was explained who he was. The handover by Sam confirmed it was going to happen but the story direction made me think it wasn't happening in this episode. Nice little cliffhangerI was very pleased to see one particular individual at the end but it will mean f- all to non comicbook readers.
The actor is also totally brilliant. He's basically my reason for tuning in next week.
I agree in terms of I prefer Bucky, just for different reasons. His thread was just far more compelling than Sam’s sister’s financial problems. Overall all very enjoyable. Nice to haveI enjoyed it when Bucky was on.
I didn’t enjoy it when Sam was on.
I just find the lad so wooden...and making Don Cheadle seem ok in the role of James Rhodes takes some doing!
^ Sam’s a government contractor, wrestling with the loss of his friend and wether or not he should pick up his mantel, he’s been neglecting his family.
Personally I took the money thing as a plot flaw so they could include some sort of grounded reality, I agree you would think he could afford to help out. I doubt it’ll ever be explained.That's obvious but was it clear he was getting paid, or just helping out? You would think he would be earning enough doing that type of contract work to prop up a small family business. Who's the sidekick, is he Sam's handler? Why is he going on undercover missions and reporting direct to Sam from the field? Fully appreciate its only the first episode, but with only 6 I think they needed to advance some of the core storytelling quicker, alongside the fleshing out character/family moments.
