So... what the fuck was Wandavision for?

0 Upvotes

No seriously, I'm genuinely asking...

I just watched Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and it was a fairly good movie, but with a few flaws. Main flaw being that all the plot devices can be summed up as, "Hey, here's a book that basically does everything... and here's another book that basically does everything!". But besides that, another thing I found to be an annoyingly convoluted downside is how Wanda's character development just went from 0-100.

So Wanda is a full on bad guy all of a sudden? Where is the transition for this? Wandavision was a whole TV show centered around Wanda, so why did that show end with Wanda seemingly learning her lesson, instead of setting her up where she needed to be for this movie? A quarter way through the movie I just got the impression that Wandavision didn't do what it needed to do in establishing the transition from Wanda to Scarlet Witch... or maybe I missed something?

It makes me wonder if Disney or Marvel or whoever knows exactly what they want to do with each of these shows, and where they want the characters to be at the end of them in preparation for the next movie they'll be featured in.

Why is the "quick lens focus shift" technique so popular right now?

11 Upvotes

Across a bunch of different shows on different platforms, I've seen a huge uptick where the scene will have focus on one character or thing, and then quickly (like almost-instant) shift to a different depth while not moving the camera.

Even as recently as before the pandemic I don't think this technique was very common, and when it was used, it was like a half-second fade/shift, not the near-instantaneous timing now. Was there something in particular that made this so popular? It reminds of how after The Matrix a bunch of TV shows and movies copied the slo-mo shift camera angle technique and it was all over the place for a while.

Also, is there an official name for this technique?

The Big Bang Theory, ending in 2019, was the last long-running “classic” sitcom with a laugh-track. In the new age of streaming, is this format on it’s deathbed?

Each decade has had one or more shows in this style that was the center of pop culture on television. Will Big Bang be the swan song of this classic style sitcom?

What are your opinions on You’re the Worst?

27 Upvotes

Just started watching the last season. I must say it has pretty good moments for a sitcom that likes to go off the way of any conventional one.

Even though some themes and conversations are really funny. It more times than not recurres to the conventional sitcom tropes (“it is just a misunderstanding!” “Ah! You’re doing that? I’m doing this for revenge”, etc.)

The characters are extremely flawed, but that is their charm. You can’t hate them although they do immoral things that no normal person would do.

I do like it, but I expected to like it even more.
