Critics have seen the first three episodes of WandaVision, the upcoming Marvel Studios Disney+ series starring Scarlet Witch and the Vision as they take on their greatest challenge yet: the sitcom. Which means we’ve got impressions.
The early verdict is that the show, from what has been seen so far, is pretty compelling, albeit substantially more off-kilter than a normal Marvel Studios entry. There are lots of homages to old sitcoms, and it seems to, largely, anyways, be a comedy. All of which sounds pretty intriguing.

And here are some opinions from the broader pop culture blogosphere:
Intriguing! Early impressions are always to be taken with a grain of salt—three episodes ain’t the whole series, and most media is too complex to really unravel, good or bad, in a couple of tweets. But it certainly seems like there might be some real promise here.
WandaVision, starring Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, and Teyonah Parris, releases its first two episodes on January 15th.
