I have watched every episode except the latest Thor-centric one, and I must admit that this show keeps falling flat for me. The only episode I've truly enjoyed start to finish is the Dr. Strange episode, and I expected the zombies episode to be so much better than it was. Is it just me being picky, or do any others feel the same way? I'll definitely watch every episode in hopes there will some amazing ones, but thus far I'm not as big a fan of the show as I thought I'd be since I have long been a huge fan of the What If...? comics.

Doctor Strange episode is the only one I really did not like because they took way too many liberties with the plot, and all of the Christine Palmer deaths were ridiculous to the point of absurdity. The idea of "fixed points" in time is a horrible concept, and the only point of it is to enforce plot induced stupidity. Plus, how is her death a fixed point when she was living originally?

Anyway...

Episode 1 Captain Carter: Great overall, but not much story.

Episode 2 Star-T'Challa: Awesome. Great balance of fun action and story.

Episode 3 Pym Destroys the Avengers: Good overall. Still don't think Hulk should have been taken out so easily, but whatev. Scott Lang "Brain in a Jar" with the levitating cape might be my new favourite Multiverse character.

Episode 5 Zombies: Pretty good. I'm not a fan of any zombie stuff, but it was entertaining.

Episode 6 Killmonger: Awesome. This guy needs to be the main villain of the MCU. He can out-Doom Doom!

Episode 7 Party Thor: Pure fun... until the end. It's like we only Watched (pun intended) the B-story (or C-story, even). But it certainly made me laugh a few times.

The biggest problem with the series is that they're limited to 30-minute episodes. That's really not much time.
