    Anyone watching The Falcon and The Winter Soldier? It's a short mini-series, only 6 episodes.
    I like it, but it's not universally popular compared to Wandavision or The Mandalorian. One contention is that it has political overtones. But the thing is, the very concept of a "Captain America" is inherently political to some degree.

    It takes place after Endgame, and as the title indicates, features Sam Wilson (Falcon), back from oblivion, and James "Bucky" Barnes, the former Winter Soldier. They are engaged in fighting terrorists who liked things better during the Blip. The villain, Helmut Zemo, who is following his own agenda, also has a significant role, as does the new Captain America, John Walker.

    New episodes drop every Friday.

    Some positive reviews about the most recent episode (#3).

    I haven't watched it yet, but the buzz is that episode 4 is the darkest so far.

    "John Walker loses patience with Sam and Bucky as they learn more about Karli Morgenthau." (IMDB)
