WandaVision was pretty good and original but then had a very disappointing finale. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier started off a little too mechanically, but ended the last 3 episodes strongly with the 4th and 6th episodes being the best. Part of it is because the series dealt with complicated issues and tackled them, not with a straightforward answer, but with being willing to ask more questions. Sam's speech was perhaps a bit too on the nose but it was right on target for our current political climate where everyone thinks they have the answers before they've figured out whether they are asking the right questions.
I wish Bucky's ending had been a bit more fleshed out, but he, Sam, and John Walker all got terrific character development over the course of the series, something WandaVision failed to do with Wanda, who really needed it. I didn't like Batroc dying and had hoped Batroc would be developed into the more flamboyant character he is in the comics. Perhaps that was beyond St-Pierre's acting chops though. Sharon got an intriguing heel turn, and who her partner in crime is should be an interesting reveal. Norman Osborn perhaps? The Isaiah Bradley moments in the finale were touching.
