Thanks to Disney Plus, I got to watch “Moon Knight” episode 1 a few days before its initial release, and I am super excited to share my initial thoughts via this live recap.

But I shared my thoughts on the trailer in that post so you can check it out, see what the show is all about, and go from there.

  53. This was a wild ride. I feel like I just watched a dope ass movie man. 

Like seriously! I loved this episode! None of the other Marvel series started off this strong. Not even WandaVision, and y’all KNOW I loved those black and white, old sitcom episodes. This is also the first time I’m not worried about a Marvel series having only 6 episodes.

But that’s it for this week! I can’t wait to rewatch this again. I already saw the first four episodes, but recaps will drop weekly with each new episode.

New episodes of “Moon Knight” will drop weekly on Wednesdays exclusively on Disney Plus.
