Flame On :: Episode 258 :: WandaVision with The Scarlet Bitch
Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.
Did you think you were the only magical gal in town? Well our very own Scarlet Bitch, Oral, is here to (re)introduce himself to you! WandaVision debuted on Disney+ in mid-January and changed the fabric of the MCU forever and now you’ll get to hear the boys give their thoughts from inside the hex!
From The Dick Van Dyke Show to Modern Family, Monica Rambeau to Agatha Harkness, Wanda to Vision, the team behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe had their work cut out for them when they announced a slate of new made for television shows starring characters that were almost never in the spotlight more than a few fleeting moments in most movies. In addition, a global pandemic made those plans even tougher to pull off. However, thanks to the work of an amazing cast and crew, the first outing from the television side of the MCU is a stunning homage to classic sitcoms and astonishing storylines that spanned decades of comics from West Coast Avengers to the solo series Scarlet Witch and The Vision. As everyone may know, our very own Oral is THE BIGGEST Scarlet Witch fan, and a review of the show would never happen without his presence, so we were ecstatic to be able to find the time to sit down with him to not only discuss what this show did right, but also point out some areas that maybe fell a little short (spoiler – Oral finds no fault in the show and disputes any notion to the contrary!) while also addressing how fan theories can go overboard and try to diminish the work even though none of those theories were promised from the source. To cap off our review, we throw out our own wild speculation and theories about where we want to see the characters and plot threads go from here!
BE WARNED! There are spoilers galore, so if you haven’t finished watching WandaVision, listen at your own peril! *evil witches cackle*
Sit back and get ready to FLAME ON!
