OK, so I watched the first two episodes.

I know that a few Marvel-history-related things probably went over my head, but I'm enjoying the story. And as brewski said, the two leads are really fun to watch. Wilson seems like he's having a blast, and Hiddleston has the "charming scoundrel" thing down pat.

As long as they don't get too deep into the Marvel weeds, I'll keep enjoying it. If they lose me, I'll move on.

One thing I really liked about The Mandalorian was that a viewer didn't have to be a total Star Wars fanboy to enjoy it. My wife, who had seen about 2 hours of anything related to Star Wars in her entire life, loves The Mandalorian. So I hope I can say the same for myself about Loki.

Good to hear. 

All I know is Owen Wilson better be allowed to ride a Jetski before this season wraps.

I find myself not as anxious about seeing new episodes as soon as they come out.   Taking more of a Loki approach.

The courage to change the things I can,

I wonder what Chicos would think of Loki revealing he was bisexual.

I suddenly regret opening this thread...   

As far as MU82's position... this probably doesn't help your cause, but my wife (who has barely watched any MCU content) enjoyed Scarlet Witch and Falcon & Winter Soldier but last night she put on headphones and told me she wasn't interested in Loki and wasn't following it.     Not to discourage... but this one is definitely more tied up into MCU fandom than the other two as far as being able to stand alone.  Not because of story line, but just general interest I think.

Not sure if they'll dig into it, but that's pretty clearly not Lady Loki. The powers, the blonde hair, and the name Sylvie makes that clearly Enchantress.

I tend to agree, and think the comics are certainly a roadmap, but Feige and his team will put their own spin on this version of Sylvie.

So many jaw dropping moments. I thought the blast from the past was big, but that episode just kept making me go "oh damn!"

I don’t know what any of this means.

Nonetheless, I’m still mostly enjoying Loki … but it’s no Mandalorian.

I really enjoyed Black Widow. Just a good fun action flick. Strong Mission Impossible vibes. I also like how they're quietly setting things up beyond what's scheduled.

I saw over the weekend also.
Cleared up some things, set-up some things and was very entertaining the whole way.
It felt good to be back in a movie theater.

Coming full circle in the story arc?

Loki had a bit of Avengers end credit scene extended vibe. I enjoyed the show thoroughly. Still think CAWS was my favorite, but between Black Widow setting up the Disney+ content & Loki setting up the movie Multiverse, they are really tying everything together.

Just my opinion, but I thought the last episode of Loki was a letdown.

I get it.  It was because it was more about setting something up than maybe concluding the Loki/Sylvie journey
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

Agreed. I thought it was the worst of the 6 episodes. Quite boring. Too much talking. Meh ending.

I'm not a Marvel aficionado so I thought maybe my lack of big-time knowledge of the Marvel universe made me miss something. I'm glad to hear I wasn't alone in loving the season finale.

Overall, though, it was fun and I'm glad I watched it.

Anyone else watching What If? I'm enjoying it so far, though clearly you can't go super in-depth with 30 minutes. I've heard rumors Captain Carter could show up in Multiverse of Madness, and they are clearly setting up another story with the Star-Lord ending. I always loved those comics conceptually because of the fun and freedom the stories presented.

we've been enjoying it. much less at stake in the series and its been nice not having to find all the hidden Easter eggs and fan theories after each episode. A lot more relaxed viewing.

Anyone else take in Shang Chi this weekend?

We went downtown New Haven to see because it's our favorite and the movie theater finally reopened 2 weeks ago post-Covid.
The theater was packed will Yale students going to see

I saw it, my buddy rented out a theatre for his sons birthday. Much more relaxed experience.

I thought it was a beautiful film. Without giving any spoilers away too soon, just beautiful sets and choreography.
