The Falcon and The Winter Soldier premiered last Friday to great reviews from critics and fans alike. The highly anticipated show was clearly a smash hit in terms of viewership, with Disney officially announcing that The Falcon and The Winter Soldier had the most watched premiere in the steamer’s history.
TFATWS beats out other popular shows on Disney+, such as The Mandalorian and WandaVision. The first episode of the show, titled ‘New World Order’, was praised for its grounded approach, showing Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes engage in regular, everyday activities. Although later episodes of the season will, in all likelihood, increase the action and scale of the show, the pilot allowed for fans to understand these two titular heroes on a deeper level, seeing their lives in a different light. No wonder fans can’t get enough.
