Episode 3 comes out on Wednesday right? If so, I think I might get Disney + just to watch this show. Maybe Wanda Vision too. :)

Watched episode 3 yesterday and it was pretty decent. I'm excited to see where this story goes.

Yup yup! New episodes drop every Wednesday. At least it is in the US, it may be different depending on where you live.

I actually didn't like the 3rd episode so much. Perhaps though maybe it is just because the episode length feels so short and they teased us right up to the cliffhanger at the end. Now I have to wait until next Wednesday :cry:

That's what they do. Gotta end each episode on a cliffhanger. It kind of gets annoying after a while. Episode 3 was okay, was a filler episode, but it gave us a lot of details about the variant. That's all I'll say, as I don't want to spoil anything.

So the revived the format of the serial novel. Back in the day Charles Dickens, Alexander Dumas and the like authors wrote their novels this way, in order to leave readers on the hook after each chapter ends, since the novels were published chapter by chapter.
So instead of typical novel chapter approach which goes action picks up, go to the top, and resolves. Serial novels chapters start by resolving the prior chapters action, than action goes down, and at the end it pick ups.

Well, things have ended. And it was worse then anyone thought. Loki became a side character in his own show, the TVA makes even less scene now that we've had the curtain pulled back, and the continuity is even more f**ked up then before.
Forget acting like comic book Loki. The TV version doesn't even act like his movie version.

Oh, and person who discovers the multiverse and ends up going to war against himself? Do you mean MOLECULE MAN???
They literally invented a character to fill a role that already existed in the comics.

Endgame really was the best time to check out. At this point you have Disney actively pissing on everyone who was invested before they took over.

(Btw Critical Drinker, aka Will Jordan, has 20+ books to his name. Many of which have been international best sellers. So there's his qualifications.)

From what I am seeing Disney is approaching franchises differently than usually was done.

Every franchise has audience that consists of A+B+C+D
- A is the hardcore audience that study the work, these would be the people who read most or all of the comics, and watched most if not all the shows with Marvel characters. They know all the plot lines by heart and all the little details. This audience in franchises tends to shrink as franchise ages, because some members are unable to keep up with it.
- B is audience that generally likes superheroes, and read some material and watched some of the shows. This is where people from A also end up, those that stopped keeping up with the new material. So this audience can recognize characters and generally know the story lines. They do not know all the details. This audience is bigger than A.
- C is the casual audience, they are generally familiar with the characters due to general exposure to the popular media. I am in this audience, when it comes to superheroes (not a big fan, this could be due to growing up in post Soviet Union location. I did like Batman and Ironman, but that could also be due to growing up on Soviet media). This audience can recognize the characters and maybe some story lines. Audience from B leaks into here as well, the more they stay away from the franchise the more they move into this crowd. This is also a large audience. They might have seen some but not all MCU films. And this would be the audience that would have generally left after Endgame.
- D is the audience that arrives and after sampling the franchise leaves quickly.

Generally, when people wanted to develop the franchise they tended to focus on audience A+B. About D, nobody cared, and if C was there, it was there. That is how George Lucas guarded Star Wars Expanded Universe.

Disney decided to approach differently they decided to focus on audience B+C, these audience come back to see characters they recognize, but they are not going to be as picky about all the details. and audience B+C > A+B. Plus A still ends up hate watching the product anyway.

(BTW, as per Goodreads, Will Jordan has published 8 novels, 1 novella, and co-authored another novel.)

For some reason his Amazon page double listed some of his books with slightly different tiles. Must have been re-prints with altered titles for localization or something.
