Spoiler to come!

This week's topic is all things Marvel. Marvel movies have been a part of my life for over thirteen years now. To say I'm a huge fan might be an understatement. It all started with Iron Man that released in 2008. From there the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) has become this huge beast that cannot be contained.

With people like Kevin Feige running the show, we get this whole universe of superheroes and their stories. But the main focus here will be on Captain America and The Winter Soldier, formally known as, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. 

Captain America and The Winter Soldier is probably the best Marvel show to date. It's got action, touching moments, betrayal, and a new bond between two friends. What more could you want? From the smallest of details to big action sequences, this show has it all. It is personally one of my favorite Marvel shows, but we'll see if that stays the same once the Loki show comes on air. 

In watching Captain America and The Winter Soldier, I couldn't help but notice the small details that really make the show what it is. Something as simple as having a small tribute to Bucky and having his logo present in the Captain America museum, makes a huge impact on viewers.

It shows us that Bucky has already been pardoned for his crimes as the Winter Soldier, before it's even said in the show. Why else would the government allow Bucky to be honored in the Captain America shrine if he hadn't been pardoned? 

The action scenes in this show are something else. We see fighting between super-soldiers, as well as ordinary men doing extraordinary things. Like Sam Wilson taking on the role as Captain America and fighting against super soldiers for a bigger cause. Then we have the fight between Sam, Bucky, and John Walker. That scene alone was enough for me to say that it was one of the best moments in the show. 

Then we have to talk about the emotional aspect of the show. We see Bucky in Wakanda as he is just being free of the Winter Soldier mind control and boy does that bring on the tears. We also get to see what it means for Sam as he takes on the role as Captain America. But we also get to see how these characters interact with their own families and we see the struggle that the blip has had on people. 

The betrayal of Sharon Carter was something that was not expected by me. Although I should have known that she would be bitter towards the American government that shunned her for helping team Cap in Civil War. But to find out that Sharon is the Power Broker? I was shocked! 

In watching this show, I was anything but disappointed. Like I said, this show has it all and it is a must-watch. Although the name should have been Captain America and The White Wolf.
