Welcome to "Assembly Required: An MCU Retrospective!" Join four friends as they take a look back at maybe the most significant film series of the 21st century so far.
WandaVision - Episode 7, "Breaking the Fourth Wall"
We're starting to get some answers (and more questions) as Eduardo, Peach3z, Chris, and Robbie get together to discuss "Breaking the Fourth Wall," the seventh episode of the Marvel Studios Disney+ series WANDAVISION. Happy Endings are in doubt for Wanda and Vision's Modern Family, as Vision has traded in The Office for the circus and meets a new friend, while Wanda makes a discovery that changes everything (and will stick in your head for days). All that, plus discussion about film professors having bad opinions about music in film, an explanation of the Zonai, and the return of the Surveillance Stork.
WandaVision - Episode 6, "All-New Halloween Spooktacular!"
Grab your pumpkins and hang up your bats, because its Halloween in February as we discuss episode 6 of WANDAVISION, "All-New Halloween Spooktacular!" Eduardo, Peach3z, Chris, and Robbie are joined by first-time guest Arnaldo, who shares his top five MCU films, his thoughts on the multiverse, and the Watto Theory, which we predict will dominate the WandaVision discourse for the rest of the week. Enjoy, and be sure also to check out Arnaldo's podcast, "Films from the Phantom Zone!"
PLEASE NOTE: Originally there was an issue with the upload and the last 45 minutes were missing. That's fixed now!
WandaVision - Episode 5, "On a Very Special Episode..."
The long-lost brother has returned! We're talking, of course, about the Luigi Sound Lord himself, Danny! Who did you think we meant? Eduardo, Peach3z, Chris, Robbie, and Danny get together to discuss "On a Very Special Episode...", the fifth episode of the Marvel Studios/Disney+ series WANDAVISION. Along the way, everyone learns a few important lessons about life and '80s sitcoms, Robbie and Chris decide to start the Grand Admiral Thrawncast, the guys go on a much longer tangent about a throwaway reference to an "aerospace engineer" than you'd expect (or would you?), and of course, a long discussion about THAT surprise ending and what it could mean for the future.
WandaVision - Episode 4, "We Interrupt This Program"
And now for something completely different. Angela joins Eduardo, Peach3z, Chris, and Robbie to discuss episode 4 of WANDAVISION, "We Interrupt This Program." For the first time, the Disney+ series breaks completely from its sitcom style to give us a glimpse of the outside world, bringing together an unlikely assortment of characters from several previous MCU films. What do a snarky former intern/current astrophysicist, an FBI agent/sleight of hand aficionado, and a recently un-blipped SWORD agent we last saw as an 11-year-old in CAPTAIN MARVEL have in common? What brings them to the mysterious Westview? And did this show seriously just call out obsessive fans who comb every frame of every episode for answers? Hey, we resemble that remark!
WandaVision - Episode 3, "Now in Color"
We're back with episode 3 of the Disney+ series WANDAVISION, "Now in Color," with special guest star Bailey! (She's a podcast guest, not a guest on the TV episode, though that would be really cool.) Eduardo, Peach3z, Chris, Robbie, and Bailey talk about the 1970s-inspired episode, suspicious storks, fruit measurements, the Yeeting of Geraldine, and more. All that, and the most casual monumental announcement in podcast history!
WandaVision - Episodes 1 and 2, "Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience" and "Don't Touch That Dial"
RETROSPECTIVE NO MORE! Assembly Required takes its first steps into the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Eduardo, Peach3z, Chris, and Robbie recap the first two episodes of WANDAVISION, Marvel Studios' first Disney+ original series! Dive into the surreal sitcom town of Westview where Wanda Maximoff and her new husband, the android Vision, live an idyllic life... or do they? Hear about some of the classic sitcoms were an influence on these episodes, listen to Chris slowly lose his grip on his sanity as he recaps the 1985 comic limited series "The Vision and the Scarlet Witch," and join the guys as they engage in some wild speculation about future episodes.
