Six weeks of action and excitement have come and gone and I declare that the first season of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was awesome! I loved the whole darn thing, from beginning to end. A lot of chatter online has this show as flawed, but I disagree entirely. I had fun the whole way through and loved pretty much every minute of it.
TV Rating: 9/10 – Great.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was everything I wanted and more. Going into the series, I expected an action show on par with the action-heavy Marvel movies, and we got that. I expected some fun banter/butting heads between Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes. We got that. Then the show took things even further with some truly memorable side characters and a deeper exploration of race than I would have ever predicted. I thought that part was great as well!
What can I say? I love me some Marvel Cinematic Universe content!

The Super Bowl was yesterday and, as is my nature, I didn’t watch it. But I definitely watched the new trailer for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, released alongside the Big Game! Still looks great!
The show comes to Disney+ on March 19, with is a little more than a month away. And…there’s not much more to say about the show at this point. The trailer looks amazing. The special and digital effects are movie-quality. This looks to be as good as a Marvel movie, and that’s insane!
I wish I was a smarter, more academic person so I could analyze how this will effect the TV landscape going forward. TV shows with the budgets and digital effects quality of movies? Madness! And I’m very excited. I hope you are too!
