Black Falcon Captain America and Buck the White Wolf ’cause Winter Is Over
Sherin, Julian, Alice, Mae, and Philip step into the ring to share their main thoughts about The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, streaming now on Disney+. Did the show meet expectations? And what the hell happened to the storytelling in the third act? Y’all, these questions bring up a lot of issues our Rioters have with Marvel and that makes for one hell of a discussion.

Get out your plushy unicorns and put on your David Bowie socks because you’re gonna need comforting after watching Amazon Prime’s Invincible. Our hosts get into the hyper-violent superhero action and discuss why certain changes from comic to screen did or didn’t work—yep, that includes calling out some lazy writing when it comes to characters’ cultural backgrounds. It also includes why they think this series has the capacity and world building to stick around for a few seasons—so y’all better be watching.
