Disney finds another reason for me to keep subscribing to Disney+.

The first 2 episodes are just delightful comedy. Even my kid who hasn't seen many of the shows they are referencing laughed and thought it was fun. (bewitched, dick van dyke, i love lucy).

Then there was just enough hints of the underlaying mystery, so we are intrigued.

Anyone else? I never finished Agents of Shield but I'm realizing that without a new marvel movielately I kind of miss this universe.

We made it through the first two episodes and it felt like drudgery in hopes that they are actually going to go somewhere with it. Are they actually going to go somewhere with it? I hate spoilers, but I also hate the idea of putting in all of this work only for nothing interesting to happen.

I'm getting very strong Tahiti vibes.

Eps 1 and 2 done.I am enjoying it. Paul Bettany is pretty good at comedy. In a way I was dissapointed that they jumped from the 50s o the 60s to the 70s so fast. I could have done with more time in each er... time to settle in. It upsets the dynamics both times. Still they only had 10 episodes to fit it all in so I can see why it cuts along. Looking forward to the rest

We watched ep 1 and 2 and enjoyed it. Haven't seen ep 3 yet.

I am seriously going to put a brick through my tv, though, if this turns out to be another "you need to have seen umpteen Marvel movies, and maybe read a couple comics, to have any clue what's really going on" piece of geek pop culture.

I haven't watched this but I did catch a trailer, reminded me a LOT of the simulator in Fallout 3.

Thinking about ditching D+? We got it to watch Mandalorian 1, then the pandemic hit and my poor youngest kid has had more screen time than her brother EVER got when he was her age.

We're still doing Marvel Monday, working through the whole MCU catalog, so I feel like we are still getting our money's worth from D+. This week we're up to Spiderman: Homecoming (which isn't on D+, annoyingly).

The biggest downside is that I'm not getting actual surround sound through D+ in Chrome on Windows, which is disappointing. Did a bunch of research just now, I think I'm going to get a Fire Stick 4K for the theater as that seems like the best way to get D+ and surround sound support.

We finished the mandalorian season 1 and 2, watched all the marvel movies when they came out and then before infinity war to catch up my youngest... Watched Soul and new Mulan... so not much new to watch other than WandaVision.

I have older kids though so don't go into the vault that much. Given the amount of times our pixar dvds were replayed when my son was young, if I had younger kids I'd probably use disney+ instead of buying dvds.

Is Disney+ on the Nvidia Shield system? I’m playing around with it now and it’s pretty stellar for Plex, although the interface isn’t up to ATV standards.
