Chaotic, bizarre, but thrilling new TV show

Really good so far. Not your typical Marvel TV show. Less superhero comic and more psychological thriller/psychological realism. It is a strange mixture of action, comedy, and thriller. The Mummy meets The Bourne Identity meets 12 Monkeys. Also some Stranger Things vibes. The main character struggles with mental illness (dissociative identity disorder) and severe insomnia. There is violence but nothing more than what you would see in an average Marvel movie. As stated in the CSM expert review, a lot of it is implied rather than shown. A couple of swears (a**, sh*t, h*ll) but nothing major. May be too intense for younger children but older kids will enjoy it. Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke do a phenomenal job portraying these characters. This is a must-watch. Can't wait for the next episode.

This is a really good show and unlike anything that we’ve seen before in the MCU. There’s a lot of mystery, suspense, and thriller. There’s also the confusion that both the audience and Steven feels. The locations and context of the scenes keep suddenly changing, which I know is intentional. There is so much going on, and it keeps you engaged. I have to admit, I think this show should’ve started off with a two-episode premiere. It might be one of the better Marvel Disney+ shows.
