Did You Know?


This episode is described as being set "in the 50s," with a calendar on the wall giving the date of Tuesday August 1. August 1 was a Tuesday in the year 1950, but only that year of that decade. However, August 1 was a Tuesday in 1961, the year that The Dick Van Dyke Show debuted. See more »


In the opening credits of the 50s-era episode, the "For Sale" sign that Wanda changes to "SOLD" has a phone number with a 732 area code. This is the area code for east-central New Jersey, but wasn't implemented until 1997. However, episode 4 reveals Wanda has "overlaid" her sitcom fantasy on the "real" town of Westview, NJ. The "For Sale" sign was likely from present day, and Wanda doesn't realize the area code isn't from the 1950s--it would have been 201 then. See more »

I don't understand some reviews
15 January 2021 | by nielswoltersnecSee all my reviews

So some people are reviewing this first episode and saying special effects look janky. Yeah, that's the whole purpose, well done! In my opinion this episode was actually really nice. I'm not a huge Marvel fan but this is genuinely entertaining exactly because of the odd setting. Nothing like the predictable movies Marvel has made during the last few years. Love the mysteries and until now, however it does feel a bit short, guess that's part of the old sitcom vibe it's supposed to give. Looking forward to the rest of the season, I do hope that somewhere around the third or fourth episode there will be some actual plot development, but for now I like the mysterious hinting at them being in some weird dimension.
