Saw the first episode of FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER. So far so good? Tough to tell after one episode, but I’m a huge Falcon fan so I’m glad this exists. Also there’s a character that shows up that is a definite, “Ohhhh, so that’s what this series is about,” moment.

Exciting news: The Falcon And The Winter Soldier gets off to a kick-ass start with its first episode. Its high-flying action is perfectly worthy of the MCU, and the emotional stakes are set up well. It also has some cool surprises in store, so be spoiler-phobic! #TFATWS #Marvel pic.twitter.com/7nwm8dKdOw

Blown away by #TheFalconAndTheWinterSoldier. The action is HUGE, and the banter is hilarious. More questions than answers so far, like where do the characters go when they aren’t on screen and if I turn off my TV do they just go to sleep? But overall Phase 4 is shaping up nicely

The embargo just broke on reactions to the first episode of #TheFalconAndTheWinterSoldier and all I will say is for anyone who complained that #WandaVision started off too slowly, prepare yourself for some MAJOR action right away!

#TheFalconAndTheWinterSoldier Episode 1 is very grounded & character-focused that adds new depth to Sam and Bucky.
The episode delivers brilliant action sequences that rival the movies and establishes an intriguing narrative.
Full review coming next week. pic.twitter.com/TKoiQkAnXT

Everyone is going to come into #FalconAndWinterSoldier expecting big, visceral action and the first episode delivers on that expectation. It also delivered a couple of character moments that gave me chills.

#TheFalconAndTheWinterSoldier has some really touching ties to the MCU and those are some of my favorite parts of Episode 1.
References to other characters, questions about the Avengers, the world's view of Endgame storylines… some small-scale, fun MCU world building. pic.twitter.com/EBIMYssqdO

Missing #WandaVision this week? Well, I just screened the first episode of #FalconAndWinterSoldier and WOW! Talk about action packed! I loved the story lines and even got a bit emotional. Only 1 week to go before it drops on @disneyplus. What do you hope to see? pic.twitter.com/UXn5IBSkUo

For those of you wanting more classic Marvel, then #FalconAndWinterSoldier is a return to the action-packed adventure I fell in love with from the beginning. Yes to more Bucky and Sam!! And I’m not hating Bucky’s hair 😍 The first episode had me all up in my feelings. pic.twitter.com/cXsi6KcX5z

The first episode of THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER is exactly what you think it'll be, but that's not a bad thing. If you like this world and like these characters, you will like this. It's exactly what's been advertised: more Marvel, but shaped like a television show now.

Sure, it's totally different than #WandaVision, but "Falcon and the Winter Soldier" holds to the Phase 4 recurring theme: the real damage from #Endgame was the emotional trauma.#FalconAndWinterSoldier #DisneyPlus pic.twitter.com/0bWhFtxiOi

First episode of Falcon and The Winter Soldier feels like a Marvel movie in a big way, a lot more so than Wandavision (not a knock). The opening action screen feels like a huge MCU action sequence (and not a tv fight), story feels like it has significant MCU consequences.

The first episode of Falcon and The Winter Soldier has a 7-8 minute opening action sequence to kick things off, then it becomes a refreshing reality check post-Endgame of what life for real people is like in the MCU.

1st ep of #FalconAndWinterSoldier is INTENSE! Kicks off with a lightning speed high altitude 10 min action scene that is pure adrenaline! Story gets REAL.

So I’ve seen the first episode of #FalconAndWinterSoldier and oh my god!!!!! There’s so much pulse pounding moments mixed with action sequences which will leave you breathless. Fans aren’t ready for this ! @disneyplus @MarvelStudios pic.twitter.com/GzmxAlAEAG

I've seen the first episode of #FalconAndWinterSolider, and like #WandaVision, this is something new from @MarvelStudios. A character study mixed with blockbuster visuals, it's a slow burn, but a showcase for Mackie (#SamWilson) and Stan (#BuckyBarnes). That ending, though… 👀 pic.twitter.com/zo3S1f1s5Q

Marvel fans are going to LOVE the #FalconAndWinterSoldier premiere. While it's not as creative as #WandaVision (yet), I was impressed by how much it delves into the psychology of both leads, exploring a different facet of grief and trauma. The movies could learn a lot from this👊 pic.twitter.com/p6VUEpO28A
