#Wandavision. Mando is enjoyable and Grogu is super cute, but I don’t find it very exciting for the most part.

Wandavision is great, but feel like Mandalorian gave me more awesome moments. To be fair, Mando had 2 seasons are lower expectations going in to accomplish it so it's not exactly apples to apples, more like frog eggs to breakfast for dinner.

Regarding the Bohner moment, I am an ‘80s child so, to quote Cap, I understood that reference. #WandaVision
