After watching the first season of Loki for this Loki TV Review, I’d argue that it is. The first season took the God Of Mischief to different planets and timelines. And he met new and old friends along the way. OK, and a few enemies every now and again, but who’s counting. I already touched on Loki even before the 1st season started (here).
However, I can’t simply continue with this article without the mention of something different, and yet so close to the TV series. Marvel, Disney and the MCU as a whole. Something so entertaining, but from a slightly different perspective of course. The gaming perspective. Because we know about games here at IndieGala, all too well.
Loki TV Review And Some Cool Video Games
Yup. The video games. You know, since IndieGala has an abundance of great games to choose from, it’s only fair to offer some of the best here. And not only the best. The games are also part of Marvel’s ever-growing family. And of course, games that belong to Disney’s ever-growing family. Since you know… Disney owns Marvel and all that. So with that in mind… Feel free to check out Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite (available here) and of course ULTIMATE MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 3 (available here as well).
But when it comes to Disney’s offer, there’s plenty to choose from. IndieGala has more than 40 Disney titles to offer, and it’s up to you to pick and choose the best. Well, the best for you anyway. Seriously. IndieGala’s offers are incredible. From Disney•Pixar Wall-E (available here) to Disney•Pixar Cars (available here). Not to mention classics like Disney The Princess and the Frog (just click here) and Disney’s The Jungle Book (click here for that one).
Loki TV Review And A Bunch Of Previous Disney Articles
Oh, I’ve had a few of them not gonna lie. Anything from the Star Wars franchise (Mandalorian is included of course here) to the Cars Franchise (check it out here). Some old-timers like Disney Classic Games (you’re welcome) and some new upcoming projects. Like for instance, the Obi Wan series is currently in production. You’re also welcome on that one too. I’m excited about it, and I hope you’re too. But I’m here about one particular project.
LOKI is the TV series that had its finale this week. Was it up to your liking? Did it live up to your expectations? Well, it’s the third Marvel TV show (after WandaVision and Falcon & The Winter Soldier) to receive a TV treatment. It’s also the first to be centered around a villain character (or rather an anti-hero) and the first one to get a second season order from Marvel. I can’t wait to know your opinion of Loki. Hit the comment section below and let me know if you liked it as well. I loved it. But let me elaborate why and what it is that I loved about the show the most.
Loki Is Good – Very Good
And to answer the question in the title of this article. Yes, it’s very fun being the GOD of Mischief. Especially when there are so many interesting and diverse versions of Loki, crammed in just 6 episodes. We got to see female Loki (or Sylvie), Classic Loki (played by the incredible Richard E. Grant), child Loki, alligator Loki and so many others. Oh, and let’s not forget the Loki finale set up the new villain in the next phase of MCU (more on that later).
But in the first season of Loki, the God of Mischief is a wanted man. He’s hunted by the TVA after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Not just for stealing the Tesseract. But for deviating from his timeline too. However, he gets a second chance there thanks to the lovable optimism of Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) to redeem himself. And in Loki’s fashion he’ll shake up time and space as we know it, but he won’t do that all by himself. Other variants will be there to mingle and help.
But yeah. In case you’re wondering Tom Hiddleston is still stellar in the titular role. You’d think that after more than a decade playing the same role, he’d be bored and frankly tired of it. Nope. Tom is still as invested and dedicated to the role as ever. And you should check out his range too. In only one episode (I’m talking about the pilot episode) he showed us a whole range of emotions in his performance… That other actor could only dream of ever showing in their entire career. Seriously. Would you expect anything less than perfection in the acting department? And in the rest of them, he showed that he can kick some ass, and fall for himself (or rather a version of himself) just as easily.
Great Acting And Fairly Descent Writing
Sure Tom was great, but so were the newcomers in the MCU. Yup, I’m talking about Sophia di Martino as Sylvie. And Owen Wilson in the role of Mobius M. Mobius. How fantastic is the chemistry between Tom and Owen? They’re incredible again (this time in a buddy-cop kind of a vibe). And more than a decade after appearing together in Midnight in Paris. As expected the writing is exceptional, and so is the direction from Kate Herron. That long uninterrupted shot at the end of episode 3 was a real stunner, and true craftsmanship is evident in the energetic fight scenes. And there are plenty of those. In almost every episode I might add. Just pick the one that’s near and dear to your heart and share it with us. My personal favorite is the one with Sylvie vs TVA.
It’s All About The Influences!
Indeed. And they’re also eclectic. From movies like Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy and Brazil in the tone and visual aesthetic. Oh and the cool 60’s set design of the TVA. It’s amazing. And don’t let me forget about the delightful Sothern Belle that is Miss Minutes. Yup. Voiced by the one and only, the super-talented Tara Strong. And have you noticed how Miss Minutes is very similar to Jurassic Park’s Mr. DNA?. Remember that mascot? I thought so too. But I’d love to see more of Kang The Conqueror (Jonathan Majors) in the second season. He’s one of my favorite Marvel villains and I can’t wait for more Kang. Not just in Loki, but in other MCU projects. Heck, we’re in need of a new Thanos and Kang might just do the trick. Don’t you think? So, with that in mind, I can’t wait for Season 2 of Loki.
