 “We Interrupt This Program.” is the fourth episode of the American television miniseries WandaVision, based on the Marvel Comics characters Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch and Vision. It follows the couple as they try to conceal their powers while living an idyllic 1970s suburban life in the town of Westview.

Finally! Things are starting to get interesting on Wandavision! I mean, it’s been great so far as kooky television shows go, but this is supposed to tie in the next wave of the MCU movies and it took four episodes for things to start picking up and making sense. Normally that wouldn’t be a problem but with the series only being 8 episodes long I feel that they waited too long to get this episode out. The events of episode 4 should have been something that should have happened at least one episode ago. Normally, that wouldn't bother me but with the series only being 8 episodes long, I feel that it took too long to get to this point.

Again, without revealing too much I will say that the episode “We Interrupt This Program” 
rewinds all the way back to the beginning of this series but it is told from a different point of view. Viewers now get to see what was going on outside of Wanda’s world. We get to see who “Geraldine” is and how the events of the final Avengers film affected her life. I found this episode much more interesting than the previous 3 because it made sense and for the first time the show felt connected to the films. And I don’t think I’m giving anything away by showing my enthusiastic approval over the return of fan-favorite Darcy Lewis. I think the MCU needs more Darcy.

This episode does a great job of bringing the storyline together, without giving away too much for future episodes. It felt more like an ensemble cast with Darcy providing her trademark snarky humor.

I’m still not happy over the fact that Disney plus is only dropping one new episode per week because most people like to binge-watch and it’s only 8 episodes I don’t know why they’re drawing it out over 8 weeks. In my opinion, this is where Netflix will always come out on top because they don’t make their customers wait for new episodes. They understand the joy of binge-watching.

I'm glad the show has picked up the pace and brought in two familiar faces. I'm also glad that Wandavision is starting to make sense and bring that familiar feeling I would get while watching the MCU films. I feel connected to Wanda as a viewer now whereas before I didn’t. I'm excited about Monica Rambeau's presence. And I'm wondering if we can get more Darcy in the future.

  1. I thought I read that Netflixwas starting to do the same, that they released The Great British Bake Off on episode per week. Think it did the same with last season's Lucifer. once it's all out one can binge.

    1. Netflix has done the same with the K-drama Uncanny Counter (which is excellent).
      Streaming sites are having a problem with churn. People signing up to watch one movie or show and then canceling. So this is probably how they are trying to lessen it.
