The Falcon and The Winter Soldier – Ep 1 Review | Spoiler FREE

Published

on

This review will be spoiler-free and will not go into any detail about plot or story points.

As soon as one exciting Marvel show ends, we’re treated to another as The Falcon and The Winter Soldier soars onto our screens. The two shows are completely different, but it looks like TFATWS is shaping up to be another great show.

I’m not going to divulge any details about the plot or the story as I’d like to try and keep this as spoiler-free as possible so that you can go into the show blind so some of this might seem a bit vague. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier has that MCU feel that the first few episodes of WandaVision didn’t but at the same time there’s more worldbuilding going on and it does feel much more intimate and personal than lots of the films and yet it still has lots of ties and references to the wider MCU. It manages to feel familiar, but it also expands into new territory as we’re seeing a different side to these heroes. We’ve seen them in end-of-the-world situations before but no we’re seeing what their families are like or what it’s like for them when they’re not out there saving the world.

The show opens with an extraordinary action set piece that just feels bright and exciting and entertaining. It does feel like a lot of the other MCU action scenes, but it also does feel a bit more gritty- well as gritty as a show about a guy in a flying bird suit can get. This immediately throws you right into the show and gets you fully on board and makes you feel like it was only yesterday that we saw The Winter Soldier or Civil War for the first time.

But as well as the action scenes, the show is character focused and spends a lot of time with our two main characters and seeing how they’re adapting to a post-Avengers: Endgame world. But the show also focusses on how Sam and Bucky, as well as the rest of the world, are reacting to a world without Captain America. At the end of Endgame we saw Cap hand his shield to Sam and now we see what happens to the world, and what happens to America, now that they no longer have a national hero and we get to see everyone’s response to this and it’s really fascinating and it’s exciting to see where the show goes next with this.

Much like WandaVision the show ends with something big drawing you in and making you even more excited for next week and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier has definitely set itself up well for the coming weeks and I can’t wait to see where it goes next. The episode ends with something really big that looks set to shake things up for the rest of the series and quite possibly for the rest of the MCU.

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier premieres on Disney+ on Friday March 19.
