   The highly-anticipated premiere of the new Disney+ show “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” started streaming on Friday, March 19. The six-episode special is centered on the beloved heroes, Bucky Barnes aka the Winter Soldier, and Sam Wilson aka Falcon. The show is set during post-Endgame events, after the complicated “disappearance” of Captain America. The two, both best friends of Captain America, try to navigate the new world without him. They also don’t seem to get along very well, constantly getting into arguments fueled by bitterness and disappointment with each other. However, when a new “Captain America,” or rather a man dressed up as him, takes over the valiant position as the face of America to protect from a new sinister group of super-soldiers, Sam and Bucky reunite to fight against the new threat without the impostor.

   At the time of writing this review, two episodes have been released. Personally, I liked the second episode more because there was more action and teamwork. In the first episode, the two are shown living their separate lives, trying to fill the emptiness that the trauma of the past five years gave them. In the end, they reunite and find out about the impostor Captain America. Episode two was about learning about the new guy and the new threat, the super-soldier group mentioned earlier. 

  Overall, I think the first two episodes have been a little slow at points, but still entertaining regardless. The plot is starting to progress quicker, meaning there’s more action coming. As a big fan of the MCU movies, it is great seeing some of my favorite, under-appreciated characters in the spotlight. If you like action films and shows like I do, I definitely recommend giving this show a try.
