WandaVision Review

Ayush Kapali, Assistant Editor

WandaVision is a great show on Disney+ that takes the Marvel Cinematic Universe and blends it with classic television tropes to create a thrilling series about loss and what someone would do to see a past loved one. The show hosts Wanda Maximoff, who is played by Elizabeth Olsen, and The Vision, who is played by Paul Bettany, and puts both of them into parodies of old television shows like I Love Lucy, The Brady Bunch, Malcolm in the Middle, Bewitched, and many other shows. 

The show really feels like a love letter to those who love the shows mentioned. WandaVision starts in the 50s, with a whole episode in black and white with each episode covering a different era of TV. But what hooked me into the shows, were these mysteries of what is going on with the show itself. I absolutely loved the twists and turns the show made with its main characters. The performances were amazing with my personal favorite being Kathryn Hahn, who plays “Agnes the nosy neighbor.” The songs in WandaVision are also references to the era they are in, with all of them sounding like something you would hear on TV back then. The songs themselves were written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who both wrote songs for Frozen so you know they are going to be good. 

Overall, I would recommend watching WandaVision if you are interested in watching it or are just looking for a good show to pass the time. It really did take me on a journey and had me guessing all along the way.
