It was fine. It was safe. Zero risks taken. I really didn’t have a lot to love in this episode. I agree Baron Zemo is well done, but I am not feeling the Flagsmashers, they feel so vague and unrealized with the least memorable villain. She just kind of wanders around and looks sad.
I don’t miss the needless brutality of Daredevil et al (although it had some epic fight scenes - the Disney fight scenes are a joke by comparison) but those shows had real weight, and terrifying, well-realized villains. Those shows were art. This is passable entertainment but it’s not on anywhere near the same level.
Sorry to be a downer. We’ll keep watching it because it’s Marvel but I’d say we’re both a bit disappointed.
