Read somewhere that they brought the release forward, as it was supposed to be released later in the year and somehow maybes link in with the new Dr Strange/Captain Marvel storylines. Watched the second episode. It’s very interesting and totally different. Imagine kids watching it and thinking ‘what the hell?’ when expecting shooty fighty pew pew.

They moved it up to December 2020 from an Early 2021 release (still the first show) and then moved it back to Early 2021.

why are they releasing a longer version of a very mediocre film?

One of the original director’s Zach Snyder kids committed suicide.

Another director Joss Whedon came in and changed almost everything.

People have been petitioning for years to be allowed to see the film the original director wanted to make.

So it will be an almost completely different course corrected film.

The director is Zack Snyder, the guy who has never managed to do a good story and always has been style over substance. The only difference will be all the joke-y bits Whedon put in will have been removed and the black actor who originally had a large part will be shown more on screen since Snyder isn't a closeted racist.

What's the actual premise of the show?

All I know is that it has Kathryn Hahn in it and that's pretty much enough for me to watch almost anything.

If you've not read some specific fringe Marvel comics runs then it's essentially impossible to get a grasp of the show until later.

Yeah, essentially :lol: I've happened to read (what I assume) the comic storyline this likely is based on. Naturally it won't be just as the comics, as they need to make it fit the MCU, so I can piece stuff together - but you essentially need to be a bit of a Marvel nerd to appreciate the Marvel parts. However, I fully enjoy the ride through the different sitcom decades. Nine episodes, so assume they'll be doing sitcoms until ep 7/8 with more and more of the outside story thrown into the mix as we go along.

It's somehow not, as long as you are interested in sitcom history.

The Marvel story will be well worth it in the end if it is what I think it is. If so it's perhaps the most ambitious storytelling attempt for a TV show I'll have witnessed.

Yes and no.

Stuff is already happening, little bits here and there - I imagine more and more cracks in the reality will appear each episode as the pieces come together.

When you say sitcom history, do you specifically mean American sitcoms, or will there be Fawlty Towers and Blackadder references?  Would definitely watch it if Vision and Scarlet Witch were priests on a remote Irish island.
