Interesting Show, but not Marvel's best.

Pretty good show but Wandavision and Loki were more consistently creative. There is intense violence but the show is not overall that violent. One instance of blood goes by very quickly and is hardly noticeable. Julia-Louise Dreyfuss as Madame Hydra was an interesting addition, I hope she's used for something substantial. Also nice of them to remember and wrap-up Zemo and Sharon Carter's stories, and they very respectfully handled the death of Chadwick Boseman.

This series was woke in regards to race, violent, and just boring. I wouldn’t bother also they didn’t make Falcon, Captain America, which stunk! Disappointed.
