Enjoyed it, I'm in.  I had an "oh damn" feels moment in that one.

Really enjoyed the first episode. Love that these series are giving us good background and character development for the “lesser” heroes. Really helps to give more depth to the MCU.

Yeah that was phenomenal depth episode. Hoping from here it moves forward, dwelling too much on the backstory and development gets stale fast, but I think we know where they are now and get the gist the avengers are a shell right now because they are rudderless.

I love how they're fleshing out the characters.  This is great stuff so far.

Episode 2 was a step down for me

The racial aspects of Episode 2 were really hamfisted. I'm not sure if they just didn't know how to handle it or if it was just a misstep, but everything just felt really weird and lacked any bit of subtlety. 

 

I like the concept so far and loved Episode 1, so I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt so far.

I hope the "Not my pig, not my farm" was a subtle Letterkenny reference.

This is just a mediocre, 6 hour long Thor Dark World level Marvel movie at this point. (And of course I'll still watch every episode)

That was fantastic.  I'm waiting for them to overtly reference Erskine about a good man.

Minority point of view here, this is just a complete mess, incoherent, lame wannabe politics, boring chemistry between the leads, uninteresting villains... Last shot was great though

Ok the last two episodes IMO have been great, and have made the show a lot better than it was. I'd still take WandaVision over this (unless the finale is just bonkers) but last episode was a lot less ham-handed and it made a -huge- difference.

I think a lot of difference between the two is that Wanda was set up to be a limited run and done, and told a concise limited story. They couldn’t go further than that cause it’s set up to be the plot of some upcoming movies.

But Falcon could go on and do multiple seasons cause it’s kind of a side quest to the other stuff going on. It’s highlighting that there are no avengers right now and that’s a problem, but these two running off and tackling specific problems, kind of like Cap and Widow did off screen for a while leaves things more open ended, kinda time filling. Although this show has been doing some groundwork to introduce the X-men and Fantastic Four/Dr Doom if you are paying close enough attention.
