Echo Review: Marvel Tries To Answer Criticisms With Mixed Results | That Shelf


The television entries of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been, to date, mostly pretty good. While not 100% successful, they have each tried new genres and expanded the universe in interesting ways. While they have performed well with most audiences, there are some that have been dissatisfied with them. Aside from claiming they suffer from pacing and structural issues, their lighter tone has left them wanting a return to the darker, more adult style of the shows previously created for Netflix. Echo, Marvel’s latest series, represents an attempt to recapture that audience, which it does but with mixed results.
