    Oh man that was the best! We’re on Pacific time momentarily so we stayed up to midnight to watch the finale with our 9 yr old who got into Loki midway with us.  

    Comment that is probably a spoiler:

    I really loved what Jonathan Majors did with that role of “He Who Remains.” He took it and went all the way.
    I liked how so much of the finale’s runtime was dedicated to a Mexican stand off with a philosophical dilemma, and Majors just really convincing the audience how insane he is yet how logical he is.  It was like they were playing chess with Death a la The Seventh Seal.  I loved the stinger that there will be a Season 2.  I don’t know if that was already known but it was news to me.  This is my favorite thing MCU has put out since Endgame.

    Still not sure how to hide stuff, but spoilers.

    Spoilers . . . .

    Here it comes . . .

    I wish they hadn't danced around the main bad guy reveal for so long. Anyone that's read a lot of Marvel time travel stories saw this coming a mile away.

    I don't think most people were expecting this version of the bad guy to be Immortus, but it makes sense as they get their cake and eat it too.  He's a future version of Kang when he's not so bent on conquest.

    It would have been cool to actually see Kang come in and wreck Immortus' castle, but whatever.

    He'll be the main bad guy of this phase.  I'd rather see the main characters face Kang, but by using him they open the door to recasting Cap and Iron man and brining in the X-Men pretty easily.

  • Loki

    This was the first episode I really enjoyed.  I love Hiddleston and Wilson, but the rest of the actors and the story has been "meh" for me. 

    I'm not 100% sure how to hide spoilers on here, but run if I didn't format it correctly.

    I really enjoyed the Alligator Loki and the kid Loki.  Good mix up of the kid loki from the comics a while back and King Candy from Shazam (I know . . . but it is a thing). 

    Who actually caught Frog Thor on the first go around?  I did, but I was actively looking for easter eggs based on where they were.  

    Classic Loki's costume was legit.  

    I just wish I cared about Enchantress/Female Loki.  She just doesn't excite me, the guard lady from Lovecraft Country is more interesting to me, but whatever.

    I do wish they would quit C-teasing and just get to Kang being the big bad.  I mean anyone that's read avengers for a bit should see that coming miles and miles away. Or they may use Immortus, but that's the same damn character anyhow.

    However, this is the best TV show they have put together yet.  I just worry for the others moving forward as Hiddleston is one of their best actors.

  • Superman and Lois

    Is anyone on here watching this show?  I posted a comment on lunch last week about how good this show is.

    I'm loving it, the Superman Rebirth storyline by Tomasi and Gleason was excellent and that is where the TV writers are getting the bones for this series.

    It's my favorite show on TV right now.  I'm a big DC fan and I get that, but its just far superior to the other superhero shows on right now. 

    All the characters make sense, I really enjoy that Clark and Lois have a great relationship and work as a team to raise their sons and deal with the antagonists in the series.  Both are smart and capable and lean on each other.  Their sons are believable teenagers and aren't super annoying like in many TV shows. 

    This isn't a Superman who doubts himself or his place in the world and he isn't underpowered like he was in the silly Supergirl crossovers.  They are aware of the Crisis from the CW shows, but I am beginning to think that this is a separate world entirely where Kara isn't around.  That's a good thing for this story.

    It's on CW and HBOmax like I mentioned last week. It's definitely worth checking out.  

    One thing I like about it is that it actually has some family values.  My foster daughter loves watching it and we sit down every week for it.  She's 17 so that's kind of a big deal.  I figured she would like the boys the best or Lois, but she said Superman was her favorite character.   I think it is a great thing to have a decent male father figure for kids to see on TV.

    Yea I would bet they're setting her up as the "villain" of Doctor Strange 2.
    I think she will be a pawn of Mephisto or Nightmare and she is the catalyst that gets the action going for that movie.  

    I'm also guessing white John Byrne WCA Vision may end up in that movie too and all that stuff with Vision and Wanda are resolved at the end of it and they are back to normal. 

    They are running out of good characters to use, they can't waste these 2.  

    The 2 Jr. Caps aren't going to cut it and they aren't going to use T'Challa for a while if ever. 
  • Locke and Key - Netflix

    I love the comic series, I'm ready for it to keep going. 

    The art in the book is incredible if you've never checked out the comic the series is based on.
