The Book of Boba Fett Episode 2 is the second instalment of a science fiction action-adventure drama series, created by Jon Favreau based on George Lucas’ Star Wars franchise. The seven-part series follows the exploits of fan-favourite bounty hunter Boba Fett (from the original Star Wars trilogy) as he sets himself up as a crime lord on Tattooine, with fellow bounty hunter Fennec Shand.
The Book of Boba Fett Episode 1 is the first instalment of a science fiction action-adventure drama series, created by Jon Favreau based on George Lucas’ Star Wars franchise. The seven-part series follows the exploits of fan-favourite bounty hunter Boba Fett (from the original Star Wars trilogy) as he sets himself up as a crime lord on Tattooine, with fellow bounty hunter Fennec Shand.
The Bad Batch S01E02 is the second episode of an animated scifi space opera action-adventure streaming TV series set in the Star Wars universe. Basically a spin-off of the final season of The Clone Wars, The Bad Batch features five ‘deviant’ clone troopers who come together like The Dirty Dozen (click on the link if you are too young to get the reference!) to take on missions that ordinary clone troopers are not equipped to handle.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier S01E05 is the penultimate instalment of a six-part superhero streaming TV drama miniseries. Set six months after the events of Avengers : Endgame, the miniseries continues to expand on the Marvel Cinematic Universe (“MCU”) after the 5 year blip, and the impact this has on the world, and of course, on the superheroes themselves.
With the Disney+ streaming platform being available worldwide since February this year, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (“MCU”) movies can be found in one convenient place. Power of Pop has been a staunch supporter of the MCU since the release of Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk (which is not available on Disney+) in 2008. Thus, we continue our look back at the MCU with probably its most significant movie, 2012’s The Avengers.

Thus, we continue our look back at the MCU with Iron Man 2, which was released in 2010.
WandaVision Episode 9 is the final instalment in this streaming superhero TV drama. Entitled “The Series Finale” (duh!), WandaVision Episode 9 – as the title suggests – concludes the narrative of Wanda Maximoff’s tale as she fully assumes the mantle of The Scarlet Witch. Although there was much online speculation concerning how the series would pan – including the much anticipated introduction of key MCU characters, fundamentally WandaVision operated along the same lines as a typical MCU solo movie.
WandaVision Episode 8 is the penultimate instalment in this streaming superhero TV drama series. Entitled “Previously On”, WandaVision Episode 8 – as the title suggests – essentially reveals to us the key events that took place before Episode 1. As seen in the previous episode, Agatha Harkness – a powerful witch – has been manipulating events behind the scenes in order to find out how Wanda Maximoff was able to create the pocket reality that has engulfed WestView.
WandaVision Episode 6 is the sixth instalment of the Disney+ superhero streaming TV drama. After the mind-blowing surprise ending of the previous episode, WandaVision Episode 6 carries forward the sitcom concept of the series thus far by morphing into a 90s-era TV show, complete with powerpop-based theme song (think : Friends)
WandaVision Episode 5 is the latest instalment of the Disney+ superhero streaming TV drama. Episode 5 is probably the best episode in the WandaVision miniseries thus far. We believe that this has mostly to do with the parallel storytelling in Wanda’s pocket reality (a.k.a. the Maximoff Anomaly) and the real world (a.k.a. Marvel Cinematic Universe). Perhaps this should have been the approach the series should have taken in episodes 2 and 3.
WandaVision Episode 4 is the latest instalment of the Disney+ superhero streaming TV drama. After spending three episodes in a bizarre alternate reality where Wanda and Vision were living in TV sitcoms based in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, we finally get to see what is happening in the ‘real’ world i.e. the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
WandaVision Episode 3 continues the Disney+ streaming superhero TV drama miniseries. As mentioned in our previous review, WandaVision is the first time Marvel Studios has spun off the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) characters into a TV series. Anyone familiar with the MCU – isn’t that everyone? – will be aware of its interconnectivity and perhaps that’s where WandaVision (so far) has held back in favour of a very fanciful storytelling artifice.
WandaVision is the debut Marvel Studios superhero TV miniseries drama streaming on the Disney+ platform. Of course, we have had Marvel TV series like Daredevil, Jessica Jones etc on Netflix, Agents of SHIELD on ABC and so on. However, this time around, WandaVision is effectively spinning off the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) characters of Wanda Maximoff and Vision into a TV miniseries. Thus far, Disney+ has released the first two episodes of the miniseries and its fair to say that WandaVision is quite different from what MCU fans may be used to in the hit movies.
The Mandalorian S02E03 is destined to be a fan-favourite episode of this popular Disney+ series. Entitled “The Heiress”, The Mandalorian S02E03 introduces the live-action version of Bo-Katan (played by Katee Sackhoff), from The Clone Wars animated series. Bo-Katan is of the Mandalorian Clan Kryze and plans to reclaim Mandolore from the fallen Empire.
