Verdict: not bad, as soon as I internalized that the show deliberately ignored MCU canon, all the way to the last half of the last episode. It was like they had the MCU continuity on a rubber band, and stretched it out alllll the way over there in order to do some specific stuff from the comics. Watching them suddenly release that continuity, snapping everything back to the original shiny-happy timeline, was in its way highly entertaining. I suspect some people ended up being upset at how no ‘greater’ lessons were learned.

All in all, I liked THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER, but you can probably skip it if you don’t want to soak in the MCU.

  1. I don’t know – it seemed like they tried to do too much in the 6 episodes. Three major character arcs (Falcon, Bucky, and John Walker) and only one really felt earned (Bucky). Yes, the Falcon-To-Cap story was the whole point of the series, but it felt ultimately…forced.

  2. It wasn’t bad, but I could have done without the…lectures. I will leave it at that.
