The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s “New World Order”

The first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is all setup, but it’s mostly really good setup, and it’s a chance for Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson and Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes to get a bit more development as things other than Steve Rogers’s friend. Check out my full review.

An excerpt:

Both Barnes and Wilson are trying to figure out how to live their lives in the titular new world order. When Raynor tells Barnes that he’s free now, he plaintively and frustratedly asks, “To do what?” And Wilson’s attempts to reconnect with his family is nowhere near as successful as he’d like, especially since Sarah has to constantly remind him that he’s the one who went off and joined the military, leaving her to run the family business alone after their parents died, and it’s a bit late in the game for him to be trying to be the responsible brother.
