    “By the end of the episode, you realize it was all a bad dream. None of it was real.“

    (Here is my review for the series as a whole.)

    These are my initial reactions to each episode in the series.

    Episodes 1+2: I already love this show. I hope this sets the standard for what we will get from the upcoming Marvel Disney+ shows.

    The first two episodes are really good at building the mystery while also playing creatively with the…
