It is time to re-join Falcon aka Sam (Anthony Mackie) and The Winter Soldier aka Bucky aka James (Sebastian Stan). Hot on the tails of WandaVision's success the MCU is ready for its next TV series - The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. A show that is set to be an action packed, buddy comedy focusing on Captain America's (Chris Evans) two best friends and allies. The big questions going into this series are: Can the MCU pull off another fantastic series? How will Caps legacy be honoured? and who will take on the shield? The season is comprised of six weekly episodes each varying from 45mins to just under an hour in length. I will be reviewing each episode here on this post, so make sure to bookmark this page and check back each Friday for my updates. There will be spoilers beyond this point!

Episode 1 Review - New World Order
This is a slow episode, that's commitment is to show us how lost Sam and Bucky are. The opening explosive scene will be a winner for action fans, but Marvel is really trying to connect us to these characters on a human level and I love that. The big bad organisation: Flag-Smashers are introduced, their motives originating from the better lives they had as a result of the snap. There is a nod to Captain American: The Winter Soldier, with the mission against Georges Batroc (Georges St-Pierre), which was a nice easter egg. A promising start to the series, the motivations have been laid out, I'm willing to bet this will be another fantastic MCU instalment.
