Episode 5 of Disney+’s Loki was freaking awesome.
Once again, this is a SPOILER-free zone, and yes, I’m an episode behind.
So please reciprocate the SPOILER-free-ness cos I haven’t seen the last episode yet!
Two caveats to SPOILER-free:
1. If it’s in a trailer, it’s fair game
2. Queer IDs are not SPOILERS.
I really enjoyed this episode.
I couldn’t help but feel that a whole series based around this episode would be something I could get on board with.
Give me 6 hours of Loki literally arguing with themselves against a backdrop that uses a post-apocalyptic wasteland aesthetic, and I would be there!
I think that’s partly because of the potential for character-driven-ness, partly because of the banter, and partly because of the batpoop elements that we get in the best ways in this episode.
(I love batsh** bizarre elements #SorryNotSorry)
But we can’t just hang around in this world of intriguing egotistical bickering and survivalism, because that darned plot keeps getting in the way!
Not that the plot developments are a bad thing here, I’m just far more interested in the other sh** going on — like I was with episode 3, I guess. 😅
Ugh, and that effing clock thing!
…I really want to rant about the clock thing.
But I will refrain.
Because directing this much vitriol at a fictional AI can’t be healthy 😅
