Pretty sure Thor isn't that funny in the comics. He mostly talks in a pretty serious and poetic way to make him different than the other heroes considered his state as a Nordic god.

But for the MCU the Thor version that was present pre Ragnarok was damn boring and by far the least interesting out of the cast. Ragnarok made him ten times better regarding the MCU, and regardless of how he acts in the comics.
This is exactly my arguement to my friend.

Liked it. Backstory fillers were a drag.

And Mobius the self proclaimed catcher of dangerous variants, loses his clicker to a dumb pickpocket move? And the next few scenes...way to go to make the TVA looks like bunch of amateurs!
Maybe it's part of the play to get him on side? After all, they know the path everyone should be on.

I enjoyed it, Wandavision and The Falcon/Winter Soldier didn't kick off from the get go, needed the first episode to build the story.

They know the Sacred Path, but with the variants out of that path, will the TVA still know their other paths too? Perhaps only Time Keepers do, not sure.

That's what I'm counting on too. Else it'll be super lame for TVA.

I think they will and they'll use this variant of Loki to put it all right.

I agree if it turns out that way then it'll probably ruin the series for me.

I think its a good start, all series will be different but Loki has scope to be a very clever series.

In case it was good?!
Most people think it is. You expected it to be shite for whatever reason and decided it was.

I'm not saying you have to agree, but I tend to not bother with something if I don't like the look of it, rather than watching it the first day it comes out. It just seems a bit weird. Like self flagilation. Which is fine if you're into that kind of thing, I suppose.

Im with you. Most things I think are not going to be worth it, I wait until a season or so then look at reviews, see if it's been renewed etc

What I'm doing with power book 2 or some of the Netflix series now

I really liked it. Loki was the one I was looking forward to the most.

I did the same with Lost and GoT. After the reactions to the endings, I thought it was definitely not worth all the hours invested in it!

No but who cares if it's first day or 100th Day? He still believes it's crap.
Because he's gone out of his way to watch something he had predetermined was going to be crap. Why not choose to watch something you might possibly actually enjoy? Life's too short to actively choose to watch stuff you know you're not going to enjoy.

I already told you - curiousity. And hope. We've all been pleasantly surprised by some films. And we all go out of our way to watch things. Doesn't matter how soon after release. Maybe he's not super pressed for time? People watch all sorts of crap these days due to the whole streaming /binge watching culture.

Yes. But the Marvel TV series have been good.
Can't say. Haven't watched any due to the films. Might try one out. Which one of the 3/4 do you think is the best? I also know feck all about their 'universe' so hope that won't be an issue?

All worth a watch. I like the aesthetic direction of Loki it reminds me of Mindhunter. WandaVision isn't standard Marvel as well. Falcon and WS was fun but nearer to conventional Marvel stuff but good TV nonetheless. I hate the movies too so I've been pleasantly surprised.

It's the same everytime something new comes out. People just love to be contrarian and be the first to shit on something for Internet points.

I'm with you, if I expected to dislike something I certainly wouldn't be tuning in day one just to confirm my suspicions. Shouldn't be surprised though, it's always the same on the Caf. Look at the WandaVision thread, people couldn't wait to shit on it.

I really don't see the problem. Even if I dislike the concept of a show what prevents me from watching the first episode and see if it wasn't what I expected? If this was a movie of 2 and half hours I might understand the idea that you won't want to sit through all of it but the first episode of a show? I see no harm in him trying it himself and see if it surprised him or not. No contradiction or hypocrisy for me at all. Better than shitting on it without actually seeing it.

Good start to the series. Loved the reaction of Loki when he realized that there are forces out there stronger than Thanos.
