‘WandaVision’ is excellent television

Brady Cicero, Page Editor

WandaVision will go down in history as one of the best TV shows to ever exist. WandaVision follows Wanda Maximoff and The Vision after the events of Avengers Endgame. There are nine episodes in total, but the first 7 episodes start out with Wanda and Vision in different sitcom eras where not all is as it seems. The show goes from funny and witty, to eerie and dark in a matter of seconds. With all the episodes, (even in the comedy parts) there is a sense that something is off about the world that Wanda and Vision find themselves in. Wanda is often accompanied by her friend Agnes, the nosy neighbor. People from outside the sitcom life also tend to make their way into WestView. 

As the story progresses, all of Wanda’s traumas are manifested into the idyllic sitcom world that Wanda and Vision live in. WandaVision explores Wanda’s grief and what it means to experience tragic loss in your life, and how such heavy grief can affect your life. WandaVision also explores Wanda coming to terms with who she is, and how who she is makes her the most powerful being in the MCU. WandaVision also shows Wanda and Vision’s family life through 5 different sitcom eras, and present day. The show perfectly captures what family truly means to Wanda, and how her love for her family ties into the world she finds herself in. 

The acting in this show is also phenomenal. Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Teyonah Parris, Kathryn Hahn, Randall Park, and Kat Dennings all give A+ performances that make WandaVision a spectacular show. All of these actors give very raw, and emotional performances that are a must see and some of the best performances seen in entertainment history. Elizabeth Olsen specifically is able to go from funny sitcom character to powerful Avenger in a split second. Olsen’s acting abilities are on full display in this show and they are certainly a must see on their own. 

WandaVision is a phenomenal show with a phenomenal cast and story. WandaVision isn’t just a story about superheroes, it is also a story about grief, and what grief can do to a person. WandaVision explores grief, sadness, love, and family in a way that has never been explored before, and it does so in the most unique, creative, and amazing way. WandaVision is the best thing Marvel has ever made, and this story will continue in future MCU TV shows and movies such as SpiderMan 3: No Way Home, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. WandaVision is truly a must see for everybody.
