    From what I've heard, Oscar Isaac is only in it for this series and we won't be seeing Moon Knight outside of it, so I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Episode 2 was cool, my only complaint was the fight scene against the invisible hound. Anytime you fight something invisible in an action scene it usually looks goofy.

    But plot wise i thought everything was really cool. Definitely has me hooked so far.

    I am hooked. Not really familiar with Moon Knight. He crossed over into a few of my spider man comics at one point but yeah really don't know anything. Read up a little bit to have a better understanding. I think they are doing a really good job with this so far and Oscar Isaac is doing a great job.

    Good third episode. Nice to get some more action/punch ups both in and out of the suit. Nice to see more of what Moon Knight's powers are in that fight. Much as the moving the sky was kind of silly (there's an app for that!) it was a pretty neat visual. I guess there were some hints at another personality yet to be revealed so it'll be interesting to see when/how that comes out. Apparently there is going to be a

    in the next episode so that's kind of lame but hopefully it won't be too much of a focus.

    Good 3rd episode. I've realized the only thing I'm not digging is Ethan Hawke. It's like when Highlander played Raiden. IDK. They should've cast his brother Stephen Dorf.

    I really like this show so far. Some of the CGI is not great, but I have come to expect it with the MCU shows.

    When you watch the animated movies or even the cutscenes from the games, you realize just how horrible Christopher Lambert is not only as Raiden but as an actor in general.

    Was outstanding and maybe one of my 2-3 favorite Marvel episodes off the top of my head. Very very interesting and emotional.

    I just watched the 5 episodes out over the past few days and I'm enjoying it. I can't believe there's only one more episode I thought these shows were always at least 8 episodes. I'm interested to see how they wrap it up.

    I just caught up on the last 2 episodes. Wow, Asylum was outstanding. I agree it was one the best, if not the best, singular episode in MCU television so far.

    Ethan Hawke is great in this. I can see why some people weren't feeling him earlier on, but I never thought he was bad. And in the latest 2 episodes he was great. A real Ned Flanders vibe, lol. But obviously Oscar Isaac is the superstar here and I think he should be a strong award contender for this role.

    Though I'll be sad this show ends next week, I'm fine with there being only 6 episodes. Better to wrap it up than stretch it out.

    Prior to this I had Loki as the top MCU show to date. This could top it. At the very least it'll be in the top 2.

    Episode 5 of Moon Knight was incredible. Isaacs’ performance was a tour de force and it was a really well done exploration of trauma and abuse. Not your conventional superhero show by any means. It’s great to see Marvel taking risks with the format by doing shows like this and Wandavision.

    I have no idea how they wrap this up in one episode unless there’s a season 2. Interesting that Isaacs hasn’t signed a big contract with Marvel like other actors traditionally so. But Kevin Feige apparently got him to sign on after giving him the scripts for episodes 1 and 5. I can totally understand how those scripts piqued his interest.

    Apparently they changed the preview description of this week's episode from "series" finale to "season" finale.

    Good finale episode if a little underwhelming but I feel like that's generally inevitable.

    Very much looking forward to She Hulk. Looks like it'll be a lot of fun. CGI's a little dodgy on her, though.

    I think it looks solid but not great. Sort of like Hawkeye with matching an Avenger who's never had a solo movie with a new female character, except in this case She Hulk is the clear lead. I don't know the actress - a lot will depend on how charismatic she is and how well she can carry a series.

    Story-wise, I'm not all that interested yet. I heard my girl Grace Randolph say She Hulk is very popular in the comics and holds her own story-wise but this seems very much like a spin-off.

    Tim Roth coming back is cool though. If he's the main villain (which I suspect he is) and if he's heavily featured, that would be a big boost IMO.

    The actress carried a show for 5 seasons. I would be surprised if she ends up being a problem.

    I think the CGI looks fine, but I'm rarely someone who notices bad CGI until other people point it out.

    Random thought but I would have liked to see Kaitlin Olsen in this role. And not just because of the below screenshot, but because I think she would legitimately be great and funny at it, like in that dating scene in the trailer.

    I'm sure they will have time to make updates to the CGI. There were a few odd looking shots, but I'm not going to base a show off a trailer.

    Orphan Black is great, and you all should watch it. Tatiana Maslany is an incredible actor and she is a very good fit for She-Hulk.

    Interested to see how they explain:

    I am looking forward to this. A couple of the shots made the CGI a bit dodgy but that doesn't mean all of it is bad or they won't clean it up a bit more.

    Much like Moon Knight I am not familiar with this character so going in fairly blind.

    I really enjoyed Moon Knight so I am sure I will enjoy this.

    My wife and I watched about 4 seasons of Orphan Black so i can also vouch hard for the lead. She's a force. If you were impressed with Oscar Issac playing two guys on Moon Knight, she played about six people on OB.

    I wasn't positive that was him. But now that you say that and I do a quick google search I see that it was him.

    I was going to mention it. Will be curious if he's just a guy in a dating montage or if he actually has some time on screen.

    Just watched the first episode of Ms. Marvel. Really enjoyed it. Main actress is very likeable and does well. Really good job of developing the family dynamic, they do a great job making you feel for both Kamala and her parents. Liked the vibes with the visuals and incorporating words/pictures into the backgrounds/setting. Was curious how they'd origin her powers as I heard things were different from the comics, and probably would've expected that, and I'm curious to see how it's explained further.

    Agreed, a very fun first episode. I get nervous when kids are the leads of shows, but they both knock it out of the park. The family pitch perfect as well. Really hope they keep this tone throughout the series.

    Not too bad of a first episode. I don't know jack shit really about Ms. Marvel so going into this with an open mind. I agree with mth about how it looks visually especially with animation being incorporated at various times. The concept is cool, a superfan of the Avengers, mainly Capt Marvel, becomes a super hero.

    I did not expect the Ms. Marvel TV show to be where

    debut in the MCU.

    Overall, it was a good show. I have to admit i got a little bored with the family history stuff set in the past as I was more interested in Kamala's current day situation but I understand why the backstory stuff was important and meaningful for the character. I absolutely love the main actress and look forward to seeing her more.

    I liked Ms. Marvel, but I didn't love it. It was well made and everything, but I just found myself waiting for something to happen a lot of the time. I sort of feel like everything they accomplished in 6 episodes could have been done in 2 and then she could have faced an actual villain and come out on top. The DODC didn't interest me and the Clandestines were just boring in my opinion and didn't feel well thought out.

    It's an origin story, so it makes sense to focus on her learning her powers and her past, and her connection to her larger family/community. All that is great, and I like that they wanted to do something different than their standard formula, but I kind of missed the formula honestly. I wanted Kamala to leave the series feeling triumphant, and I didn't feel that way to me. The conflicts were mostly personal and I never felt like the outside threats accomplished much. The show set a bunch of things up and then didn't follow through on most of them. I know the character is coming back and this gives them threads to follow later, but I would have liked resolution from a conflict besides the family stuff.

    Overall, even though I was a bit disappointed, and I think this is probably my least favorite Disney+ Marvel series, I thought it was good. When I do an inevitable re-watch I'll be interested to see if my perspective is different on a second viewing.

    By the end, I enjoyed Ms Marvel as a whole. It was another example of Marvel using TV to do something, this time leaning into a different culture rather than genre. I thought her family was nicely drawn and Kamala herself is a great addition to the MCU.

    On the one hand, some of the middle episodes dragged a bit but I also came away feeling like there could have been two more episodes. The way episode 5 ends so abruptly felt odd. The threat from Damage Control came out of nowhere in the final episode. They could have been built up better, even if the lack of a big bad in the early episodes was refreshing. The trip to Karachi meant that Bruno and Nakia dropped out of the show altogether and then having to get back to Jersey for the finale resulted in little time to explore Muneeba’s feelings about Kamala’s powers.

    The threat from the Clandestines seemed mega rushed - they had barely been introduced before suddenly wanting to murder everyone at the wedding. They were unwilling to spend even a few minutes considering how they can return to their realm without wrecking ours in the process. I didn’t understand why Najma’s death closed the portal, when another Clandestine had been killed in the exact same way a minute earlier, nor why Kamran suddenly got powers like Kamala’s.

    With everything we learned in Moon Knight, on top of all the multiverse and celestial stuff, the MCU is piling on the mythology and layers at this point. So while this introduced yet another dimension into the mix, it was good to see a friendly neighbourhood style hero by the end of the show.

    The brief mention of the Scott Lang podcast was a great way to explain how all these characters in the TV shows can possibly know the specifics of the final battle with Thanos. I wish they had kept more of the visual style of the first episode, with Kamala’s imagination coming to life around her.
