Stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany are adorable, and they quickly settle into the episode's comedic conflict.

Kathryn Hahn is absolutely killing it as Agnes. She's clearly having a blast inhabiting both the buttoned-up aesthetic and the "golly gee" jargon of the era, and breathes a lot of life into the cast.

The first episode of the Disney+ series WandaVision raises a lot of questions, most of them trivial in the grand scheme of life.

Right off the bat, WandaVision tells us several things about its premise, something to be thankful for with a show this high-concept.

Director Matt Shakman gingerly balances the peculiar tonality with dark and ominous vibes.

The perfect introduction to this bizarre world that Wanda and Vision are living in. Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany ooze chemistry.

A start that may not be to everyone's liking, but which I think should not be used to judge the series as a whole. [Full review in Spanish]

Kathryn Hahn is utterly fantastic playing her, but she's almost too perfect.

For those willing to wait, showrunner Jac Schaeffer seems to be slowly building up the mystery, laying the foundation for the series by fully immersing it into the sitcom world that has become Wanda and Vision's new reality.

Cunning in its conventionality yet tonally ambiguous, this may not be what's expected, but there is a definite sense of substance beyond the superficial.

This was a fantastic, creative, humorous, and super strange series premiere. I wasn't excepting to laugh so much. Both Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany do a fantastic job, but Bettany really steals the show.

[Modelled] after a Hollywood Golden Age sitcom, from the 1950s, replete in black-and-white, a near-square aspect ratio, and a live studio audience, actually. It's got those silly jokes that you associate with old-timey sitcoms too
