The First 4 Episodes Of “Moon Knight” Hints That Marvel May Have Finally Found The Right Recipe For Their Limited Series

If you’re excited for Disney Plus to finally start dropping episodes from their latest limited Marvel series “Moon Knight“, you’ll be excited to know that you won’t have to wait much longer.

The first episode of “Moon Knight” will premiere tomorrow, March 30th, exclusively on Disney Plus.

And even though I’ve already seen the first four episodes, with episode four not being a finished product just yet, I’m still extremely excited to watch all the episodes again, weekly with all of you! And that’s saying a lot, because the only reason I ever watch an episode twice, is to participate in a Black Disney Moms twitter watch party, or to discuss it on Clubhouse with the girls, and other Marvel fans. So yeah, to say that the new “Moon Knight” series, is amazing, is putting it lightly.

Now I’ve already shared most of my excitement on my Twitter account, as well as on my first love, Popcorn and Tequila, via this review of the first episode . So check those if you just wanna hear me ranting and raving about how good “Moon Knight” is.

Because that’s not why we’re here.

I’ve gathered you all here today … to discuss Marvel’s new “recipe” for their limited series!

And I know some of you are like … but sis they figured out their new recipe a few series ago. Like this guy on Twitter.

But you’re all wrong. They didn’t.

I said it here on Twitter, and I’ll say it again.

When I say new “recipe”, I’m not talking about the number of episodes! It took me awhile to realize that’s what @Gindor8 meant when they responded. However, what I’m referring to … is the writing.

In every other Marvel series we’ve gotten so far on Disney Plus (the OGs, not the stolen goods from Netflix they just threw on the app a few days ago) there was a very visible pattern terribly hidden into the series.

Terribly hidden because I mean come on … after both “WandaVision“, and then “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier“, you could pretty much tell that even though the series started off slower than molasses, things would kick in after episode 4.

We were practically begging people online not to give up on “Loki”, or “Hawkeye”, because “things would get better, and it would pay off in the end”.

We KNEW that the show would get better! And that was the freaking problem! The show should have been amazing from the get go. I mean, it’s Marvel after all. They’re on such a high pedestal right now, because their movies have always been great. So we expect that same level of greatness from their series. We just weren’t getting it!

Until, now of course.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVED WandaVision! Especially the first 4 episodes! Despite the fact that a lot of other people didn’t. But, even though I loved those episodes, it always felt like the storyline was just dragging along. Like we were just waiting for something to happen, before the intensity kicked up a notch.

And we were.

“WandaVision” turned its ship around right after the “color came back” in episode 5! Hell, “Hawkeye” didn’t kick in until they got rid of the cheesy ass Christmas music, and coach finally put Florence Pugh in the game, towards the end.

All I’m saying is, the first 4 episodes of every Marvel show felt bland compared to the rest of its series. But that’s NOT the case with “Moon Knight”.

For some reason, “Moon Knight” came out swinging in episode 1! The cinematography, the scoring, the story, the costumes, the creative concepts! They all kick in right within the first few seconds, and it never lets go!

I haven’t seen the last two episodes yet, but with the way things have been going, I don’t see this excitement bulldozer stopping anytime soon. And that my friends, is what I mean when I say Marvel has FINALLY found the right “recipe” for their limited series.

Each series before “Moon Knight” pales in comparison to this one, and they all felt incredibly incomplete, even during its final hour. But “Moon Knight” just doesn’t disappoint, the way the others did. I’m still not sure why just yet, but I’m excited to see the last 2 episodes, to see if it can keep its momentum.

And I hope we get more series written and directed just as well as “Moon Knight” in the near future. This is the new standard Marvel, so I hope you can keep up!
