    Finished

    Zemo was the best on this tbh. Falcon and Bucky just ain't interesting enough. That's how I felt about Wanda and Vision but they made them 10 times more interesting on the show unlike here.

    US Agent was also pretty disappointing after peaking with that crazy scene.

    Sharon was also disappointing since nothing happened.

    Ayo and the girls were nice.

    And how the f--- is everyone able to catch and throw the shield like that if Steve had the serum and they don't/didn't?

    Thought it ended WAY better than wandavision that ending was laughably bad. Only problem I had was that Sharon being the Power Broker was the most predictible choice they had. Overall I give it a 7.5 - 8

    I think some of the lines sounded kinda corny and predictable "are you telling me lamar's life didn't matter" but I'm white so that's not really my fight lol u enjoyed the show overall though

    I also think marvel shows will probably almost all have odd endings cause they're still treating it as part of a universe so the payoff of a long season might be lessened I do think this finale was pretty decent and it does tie off way more if not all loose ends compared to wandavision

    Whole racism thing was corny, but it is what it is. They made a whole show to let us know that Sam is black, and that he's Captain America now, nothing we didn't know.

    I think they handled race decently well but there was some stuff that was extremely on the nose it never really bothered me outside of a couple things but like I said it's not really my criticism to make at least not as much as other people

    I liked it overall. WandaVision started off great but dropped the ball. This show remained consistent, was pretty straightforward but they didn’t pull the rug out like WandaVision did.

    Idk, feels like they been telling us that Falcon is black for the whole show. We knew that lol no one cared. I understand that he's captain america now, but d---, it's been a bunch of episodes and most characters s----d.

    I feel the other way. The first 3 episodes were just there, nothing was really going on until 4.

    I've watched both Wandervision and this over the last couple of weeks. Did you ever try to re-watch WV? Holy s---, it was amazing. I thought the same as you to begin with, "what is this s---?". I nearly switched off after 2 eps but I'm glad I didn't. It goes from 0-100 in like ep 3 or 4.

    No mate didn’t give it another go. I might have to now though after reading ur post.

    I’ve just started watching Shadow and Bone, and then after that I’ve got that Marvel’s series to watch Winter Falcon thingy.

    I’ve only watched the first 3 episodes of Shadow and Bone, it’s great so far, deffo recommend it if you’re into that sort of thing.

    What's it about?

    If you like the Marvel stuff then you've got to try WV again. Honestly, after the first 2 or 3 episodes it all just fits into place. You'll understand.

    Let me know when you watch it again!

    Not gonna lie, I didn’t exactly care for that finale. I think it might’ve been the worst episode tbh. Don’t get me wrong, it was good, it just felt rushed to me.

    I was confused with the US Agent character towards the end. I understand his gripe was with the flag smashers, but why were Sam and Bucky just suddenly ok with working with him towards the end. Feel like I may have missed something. I genuinely thought he’d be the “final villain” after the flag smashers (worst MCU villains ever) were taken down. Idk. Definitely a great show and can’t wait for S2 and whatever the h--- Cap 4 is gonna be lol.

    Karli was just too boring to be the actual villain. I was hoping it would be someone else.

    US Agent had some good moments but ended up being a mess.

    Did you even get the point of the show. Everybody knows that having a black man be the new captain america is gonna be opposed by a lot of people so did you really expect them to just make that plot point a smaller part of the show? The show has a lot of problems but this critique is literally just ignorant.

    lol I know. It's just been so boring to me. They were into something with Zemo, Sharon and US agent, but in the end, nothing really happened.

    New suit is also kinda ugly, at least the head part.
