4 Things You Need To Know Before Watching 'WandaVision'

Disney+ started streaming the show "WandaVision," and the Marvel Universe keeps getting better and better.


On January 15, 2021, Disney+ released the first two episodes of "WandaVison." This is the first of multiple Marvel-related TV shows that are expected to drop in the next year, and "WandaVision" has taken the Marvel Universe to a whole new level. Now, near the end of the first season, I've realized how incredible this show is. It stars the Avengers' Wanda and Vision, and it also includes Dr. Darcy and Jimmy Woo. In order to understand the Easter eggs hidden throughout the show and the overall plot, there are a few things you should know before watching.

1. It starts slow.

Since "WandaVison" is Marvel's first live-action TV show, I'm not surprised that the first two episodes start off a little slow. There's not a whole lot of action like you would expect from a Marvel production. These first few episodes are on the shorter side, but don't worry, they do get a bit longer as the season progresses. Don't be discouraged if you don't automatically love it at first. It'll grow on you.

2. Brush up on your Marvel history.

If you're a fan of the Marvel Universe, than you most likely know a lot about each character and their stories. Whether you prefer to read the comics or watch the movies, be sure to brush up on your Wanda, Vision, and overall Avengers knowledge before you watch the series. Not only will this make it easier to understand the plot, but it helps you recognize the Easter eggs and make predictions.

3. There are cliffhangers.

This is one show that I recommend binge-watching purely because of all the cliffhangers. Every episode leaves you wanting more, and with more questions than answers. Not only does the show get better every episode, but every cliffhanger is more suspenseful than the last. Be prepared to be angry if you have to wait to watch the next episode. I promise you'll grow to hate the dreaded "Please Stand By" screen at the end.

4. Every episode is formatted like a sitcom from a different decade.

One of my favorite elements of "WandaVision" is that for almost every episode, it's formatted like a sitcom from a different decade. The first episode is reminiscent of 60's shows like "The Dick Van Dyke Show." Other episodes are reminiscent of "That 70's Show," "Family Ties," and finally "The Office." One of the best moments is Vision looking into the camera like Jim Halpert. The whole concept is fun, and brings an element of nostalgia to the show.

"WandaVision" was a great new addition for the Marvel Universe, and it sets the bar high for the upcoming shows.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
