Where does Moon Knight Episode Two land on the Banana Meter?

Hello and welcome to another week of the Banana Meter! For those not aware of how this works, let me explain it to you. First, our critics check out a television series. Then, they rate it on our scale of 0-100%, we gather the percentage from all of your critics and that’s how we get our rating on the Banana Meter.

What is the Banana Meter scale, you ask? 

When a show hits above 85% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Bonafide Bananas status.
When a show hits between 55-84% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Ripe status.
When the show hits under 55%, it means it hit Sour Status.

Our FIRST TV show to hit the Banana Meter is
Moon Knight Episode Two

Here is what our Ripe Banana Critics are saying about the episode:

Banana Meter Rating: 86%

As good as the 1st, but also packs a lot of exposition making you understand the technicalities of Marc/Steven’s mental state. Sets up the rest of the series very nicely. Also having 2 versions of the main hero with their own specific version Moon Knight, fits their specific ideologies work extremely well.

Ep. 2 was an improvement for me, I applaud the filmmakers for being creative with camera movements & the way they use reflections It’s not ground-breaking by any means but they make the show interesting (with Oscar Isaac & Ethan Hawke). Not crazily invested in it but I enjoy the ride so far.

Ep 2 delivers on the intrigue but falters on the action. Things heat up for Steven as Marc vies for control in an episode that’s beautifully shot except for the choppy action sequence. Khonshu provides a suitable menace while the score provides the tension.

This episode provided more context to what was introduced in the first episode. Overall, I’m liking where this series is heading so far.

The second outing dug deeper into the characters and world, immersing viewers in the story. It felt like a step up over the first hour.

The second episode of Moon Knight continues to entertain but brings up some concerns for future episodes. I appreciate the ambition, I’m very curious to see where this goes. Like the first episode it feels like be marvel said: “We got the action sequences” because so far my least favorite thing about the show is its action and how “light/ dull” it feels.

While not as strong as the first episode, due to its expository nature, Moon Knight still manages to deliver immaculate action sequences, stunning cinematography, and electric performances from Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke, and now May Calamawy.
