It’s not a secret that we only liked the latest in the MCU. Jami, Esta, Aaron, Mike, and Tarush provide our season breakdown:


“SECRET INVASION only has five more episodes to go, but I have a feeling I need to hang on tight because “everyone I thought I knew or trusted is not who they say they were.” And the existence of humanity is about to be turned upside down.

– Esta


“Out of the episodes aired so far, episode two has much more “promise” than episode one. Except for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 3, the MCU has been in a bit of a funk. I hope in the coming weeks, SECRET INVASION can “invade” Marvel fans to become a dark thriller to rejoice over.”

– Aaron


So lose faith if you must in the MCU. As long as shows like SECRET INVASION continue to hold my attention and entertain me to the degree that I continue to anticipate episodes every Tuesday night at 11:50 pm PST, then I suppose I’ll happily go down with the ship.

– Mike


“SECRET INVASION should be mind-bending, not confusing, as it weaves its spy-thriller-inspired story. The show needs to take a lesson from the always amusing face-swap antics of the slightly more grounded MISSION IMPOSSIBLE franchise and the tonal shifts that allow those movies to have impactful moments with genuine fun.”

– Tarush


“Let’s get right to the point. SECRET INVASION was an unnecessary series. Disney+ should have taken a cue from the wonderful one-off WEREWOLF BY NIGHT and delivered something befitting to Jackson and Fury without all the filler.”

– Jami

The entire mini-series is available on Disney+.
