What If...? - A Chaotic Episode for a Chaotic Show
Show Notes

TV-SHOW DISCUSSION:

Melvin & Dan discuss yet another Marvel property, because I guess that's what the Film & TV industry is now.

Topics: 

  • The comic history behind What If...? 
  • How the animation, and that first episode, are kinda terrible. 
  • How What If...? permits more risk with Marvel characters and concepts, especially with episode 3 onward. 
  • Melvin loves the trope of a character who observes but cannot interact (or, should not). 
  • Will certain episodes get sequels? Like, will we see Zombie Thanos fight our heros? 
  • Daniel wasn't sure he liked that What If...? went from a fun episodic "fan-fiction" style show into a typical epic superhero project at the end. 
  • Talking about which actors they brought back and which they didn't. 
  • What If...? exceeded expectations, but it wasn't like there were many to begin with. 
  • Speculating on what may happen in later seasons.
