At this point, I feel like it's increasingly hard to just tell a story because many people get caught up on in these minute details and elements that don't matter. They don't need to explain anything about the wardrobe here. They can. It could be part of a bigger picture. But, just having mismatch of eras, in my opinion, isn't an example of anything.
I do feel like I'm on an island to myself at times. I sit down and watch these shows and movies. I enjoy them. I pay attention. But, I'm not looking over them with an eagle eye and getting caught up with little details. I'll admit, I clocked the wearing of pants in terms of that obviously being a dick van dyke thing but she wasn't wearing them on the set that looks more like it. But, the extent of my thought was hmmm. Odd. And never thought about it again. But others have been completely distracted by it or various parts of the setting. I really didn't think it was that big of a deal.
Separately, I also feel like binge watching has killed attention span of many viewers at this point. It's at a point where people can't go backwards. They can't take a slow burn. Can't let a story play out as it was written. All they want is answers. Answers!
I guess maybe Lost is to blame as well. Many people (not me. I love the show still. Even upon rewatch), felt burned by the mysteries that seemingly had no answers. So, a lot of people are weary of not getting answers or proper ones.
I'm enjoying the ride so far. I had no expectations for the show. I figured it would be weird and not your typical MCU vehicle. That is very true.
I'm looking at the show as a dream episode of a tv series. But, whereas this usually plays out over the course of an episode, it's playing out over the course of a 9 episode season. I'll be honest in that I usually don't like dream episodes. It's usually, to me, a time waste in terms of story. The difference here is that it's not a time waste. This is the series. I didn't spend episodes following Wanda and then I was dropped into this weird world. We are in it with her. Yes, one probably will be able to just jump to the end and understand things. I would rather experience the whole story. I'll judge it then.
