For those that were not enamored with the old fashion sitcom feel of WandaVision and just wanted something that felt like the Marvel Cinematic Universe, episode 4 "We Interrupt This Program" is for you.

WandaVision offers something new while tapping into nostalgia at the same time. It is quite special.
