When Disney+ announced the first round of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) based series, WandaVision seemed like a bizarre, niche sort of venture, whereas Falcon and the Winter Soldier seemed like the no brainer. Perhaps we forgot about Iron Man II, Thor the Dark World, Age of Ultron and Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2. In the MCU sometimes the follow up efforts don’t land quite as well as their predecessors. Halfway through the six episode series the Regular Joes check in on Captain America’s former sidekicks and see how they are fairing in a post Cap MCU. There’s a lot of bickering, pointless diversions, several bad choices, and at least one dude who needs therapy badly. Yes, we’re still talking about Falcon and the Winter Soldier, not the Regular Joes themselves. Who will end up with the shield? Can the Shrimp business be saved? And, perhaps most importantly, with everything we have seen so far why is the internet obsessed with dancing Zemo? And , do we really care? The Joes also get caught up on other recent news from Disney +. And, of course, there’s also Random Topics and What’s in the Box. Thanks for listening!
