Let's Kick it with the Joneses - Why Falcon and The Winter Soldier is Great

Marvel Studios’ newest show, Falcon and The Winter Soldier, takes a serious look at race and the current climate in our country. The show also takes a look at what it’s like to be a member of the military, showing the darker side of being under the thumb of the government. From run-ins with the police to the overarching storyline of Falcon choosing whether or not he wants to be a part of the legacy, the show has heavy moments that elicit some uncomfortable feelings.

But, it doesn’t only have dark moments and thoughtful commentary on the state of racism today, the show is also a fun buddy cop style dram with lots to unpack.

The Joneses dive into “Falcon & the Winter Soldier.” Come join us! Grab a seat at our table and let’s chat.
