I'm not that disappointed with it, but I set the bar low to begin with. So far, I agree that WandaVision was much better.I gave this show a try because this thread is so popular. But then I come in here and realize the thread is popular because of memes. I want my 45 minutes back.
Are we comparing the first 2 episodes of Wandavision to the first 2 episodes of FAWS? WandaVision definitely finished strong and picked up significantly with episode 4, but those first 2 episodes were not exactly thrilling for anyone not nostalgic for early American sitcoms.I'm not that disappointed with it, but I set the bar low to begin with.

The major difference between MCU and DCU is the stuff in between the big set piecesAlso, I don't get the disappointed reactions to this show. It feels like the movies to me. Heavy on action and quippy dialogue. That's pretty much the MCU formula. I get that it's a shift coming on the heels of WandaVision, but that show stood out because it was unique. From the trailer, FaWS always felt it would be more straightforward.
When you take the Marvel movies as a whole, those moments you mentioned are miniscule compared to the amount of "battle porn."The major difference between MCU and DCU is the stuff in between the big set pieces
the shawarma scene, Tony vs Dummy, everything in Capt America before Steve got the serum, T’challa and Shuri, Kilmonger in the throne room
The TV shows allow for more of that and less battle porn
If you like battle porn you can get it in tons if different spaces
I’m not saying get rid of it all together- but it should be in service to character development not in place of
(eg don’t have a character make a dumb cellphone decision just to get to a fight)
