My Mid-Season Episode Ranking of ‘WandaVision’

WandaVision. Five episodes in, I can’t think of anything else. So, let’s rank the first 5 episodes as we reach the middle of the season.

WandaVision has excited me ever since I saw the first trailer. But now, five episodes in, I can’t think of anything else. The series is on par with The Mandalorian for its exciting reveals and implications for the future of the franchise. And to think that we have four episodes left is bonkers. So, let’s go ahead and rank the first 5 episodes as we reach the middle of the season.

WandaVision Episode 3 Review

5. Episode 4: We Interrupt This Program

What I’ve loved about this show is its weirdness. The sitcom-themes featured in different iconic eras of television have been replicated perfectly and have brilliantly set up a mystery that has been riveting since the beginning.

That being said, my least favorite episode of the series so far actually happened to be the one that detracted from the strangeness and gave us an episode closer to the classic feel of a Marvel Studios property. I liked that it did provide answers but because it was basically a recap of the first three episodes I was a bit bored if I’m being honest.

4. Episode 2: Don’t Touch That Dial

Following the first episode which brought me so much joy with its humor, Don’t Touch That Dial seemed to tamper the humor just a tad with a drawn-out magic show that had its funny moments but felt just a little bit too long. However, its conclusion is one of the best in the series so far.

3. Episode 1: Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience

I honestly didn’t know what to expect with this show but it gripped me instantly with its first episode whose humor and situations felt like something straight out of I Love Lucy. And yet, despite the humor, there was that moment during dinner that I feel is still the creepiest moment in the show.

The eeriness of that scene and its hidden implications for the truth of the show are so fantastic and yeah, I really loved the first episode of this series.

2. Episode 3: Now in Color

Wanda’s pregnant and is getting ready to have babies?! Um…sign me up. I’ve loved this episode ever since I first saw it. It’s got some of the best jokes of the series so far, Monica’s getup is 🔥, and it’s the episode that begins to show Vision realizing that everything is not as it seems.

Episode 5: On a Very Special Episode

Is this even a surprise? This episode was clearly the best so far as it gave viewers so much to digest while also delivering a surprise that has opened up so many possibilities for the future of the MCU. Plus, Wanda is so awesome in this episode. She is the most powerful Avenger and as of right now, no one can tell me otherwise.
