Six months after being given the mantle of Captain America, Sam Wilson aka Falcon played by Anthony Mackie collaborates with Bucky Barnes aka Winter Soldier played by Sebastian Stan on a mission to stop the Flag Smashers, an anti-patriotism gang, who are augmented with a reproduction of the Super Soldier Serum, who assume the world was a great place prior to the Blip. You'll have to watch the show to figure out if they were successful or not.
Why should you watch The Falcon and the Winter Soldier?
The most prevalent and well-explored subject in the show is racism and Black America. The plot picks up after the actions of End Game, when Steve Rogers' a.k.a Captain America handed up the shield to his long time friend Sam Wilson. Sam Wilson's character revolves around his attempt to follow the lead of his late buddy Steve Rogers. The entire show addresses Sam's underlying conflicts, trauma recovery, and other topics such as extremism and its origins, as well as the negative impacts of propaganda.
The show's look is definitely influenced by the Russo brothers' movie Winter Soldier. It's more of a follow-up to Winter Soldier or Civil War, but it's in the same genre. And, right off the bat, one of the best things about this show is the camaraderie and chemistry between Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, who play Falcon and Bucky Barnes, respectively. These two are fantastic together; their dialogue, conversation, and action are all fantastic. Also, Isaiah Bradley's character is presented well enough, being insightful, motivating, and emotionally impacting. As a result, the show has a fantastic setup.
This is a sincere, intellectual, and highly politicised show that deftly tackles problems of racism, responsibility, and legacy in a way that is perfectly suited to the MCU. Altogether, the show is recommended for everyone who likes drama, action, science fiction, and adventure genres.
