I admit it, I wasn’t really sold on Hawkeye the show at first, especially since I was…well, kinda resentful that he’d lived to get his own show while Natasha just died. But then it turned out the show was actually all about the aftermath of Natasha’s death! And finally finally she got the credit she deserved for y’know saving the entire world and all.
All that and finally Clint has been given the disability he canonically had in the comics, and finally we get to hear a (named) female character say the words “my wife” and finally Clint has to face the consequences of going on a murder spree that one time. It’s been a long time coming for some of that stuff but at last we got there. I enjoyed it very very much, I think it’s the best TV show Marvel’s done since Wandavision.
My only disappointment is with the post-credits scene! (Check it out above.) It was hilarious but I was SO EXPECTING it to suddenly cut to someone else in the audience, perhaps Loki himself (either staring in horror or wildly applauding, both of those things seem in-character) and then it didn’t! Oh and also Aaron Tveit was supposed to be playing the in-musical Steve Rogers but he didn’t in the end and I am SO MAD we were deprived of that. (It would’ve fit in great with Fra Fee being in the show as well.)
But yes, really liked the whole thing, I don’t know if there will be a season two but if there is I want a Yelena-Kate buddy movie type deal and more of Lucky the dog.
I have so many questions about the Steve Rogers musical. Did Bucky and Sam know about this? Did they find out from a billboard in Times Square? Is there a song called ‘til the end of the line? Does Bucky have a solo? Does Sam have a solo? I need answers. I need to see a conversation between Bucky and Sam about this immediately.

Because I’m tired of the “Steve sucks at modern technology” trope. He was picking up and using HYDRA tech that was powered by the tesseract in WWII. And user interfaces were pretty un-intuitive back then — knobs labeled in German or French, most likely. And think about the number of dials and thingamabobs on an airplane control panel! Yes, he’s a man out of time, but it’s probably the social stuff that’s much harder to adjust to. (You can tell he’s recently-thawed because he still insists on wearing at least a button-down shirt and suspenders when out in public.)
I loved the idea that one Avenger had a secret, and that it was that he was a normal guy who is genuinely connected to the world in a way no other avenger is. We cut a lot of the misdirection that would have made the reveal more fun, but emotionally and thematically it still works great for me.
Well, it does have a basis, the family were in the Ultimate comics. (Where they were immediately killed. Thankfully that didn’t happen here.)
