Marvel’s new series WandaVision is a major hit.
New episodes are released every Friday, and flocks of people rush to Disney+ to see the next instalment of the show.
But the streaming platform has crashed, leaving fans unable to watch the latest episode.
And they are not happy.
For people in the US, WandaVision arrived on Disney+ in the early hours of the morning.
People excitedly stayed up well past their bedtimes to watch the show, which stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany.
Instead, they were met with error messages.

Maybe in 2019 a streaming platform and hit show would have less of a hold on us.
But in the age of lockdowns and social distancing, we really, really care about our television shows.
All good shows have an element of suspense, but this is definitely not the kind that viewers were hoping for.
