Having watched the pilot I am reminded of one programme that aired years ago. That would be The Outer Limits.
The Outer Limits was an interesting TV show, with stories, often with an narrator, stories to make you think, feel and question reality as we know it.
What If shares this pattern of story telling, it appears to turn elements on its head, but the problem is the carbon copy. You appear to have the same story of Captain America told in a different perspective.
Hello Captain Carter, I liked seeing the Union Jack on the shield, being that I am British. It’s a shout to British patriotism, but I found the character flat and unsexy. The reverse of the love affair didn’t seem to work for me either, felt unbalanced.
I don’t know how other people felt with the pilot. But I was a little underwhelmed, it was well done, the animation was top quality. But the story felt lacking. I was hoping for it to be different. Hoping for a more unique feel, however I wasn’t too impressed. I will be hoping next weeks episode will be better.
