Loki: Season 1

After stealing the Tesseract during the events of “Avengers: Endgame,” an alternate version of Loki is brought to the mysterious Time Variance Authority, a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space and monitors the timeline. They give Loki a choice: face being erased from existence due to being a “time variant” or help fix the timeline and stop a greater threat.

Creator: Michael Waldron
Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, Gugu Mbatha-Raw

Where to Watch: Disney+

Review: A delightful diversion from the MCU as we know it, Loki successfully sees star Tom Hiddleston leap from beloved villain to endearing antihero — with a little help from Owen Wilson — in a series that’s as off-kilter, charming, and vaguely dangerous as the demigod himself.

Loki’s first season was a triumph, full of great performances, effects and lots of amusing timeline shenanigans plus a great finale that sets up so much to come in the MCU.

Wilson, now at the peak of his powers, is a real hoot. He’s effortlessly perfect as the grizzled old detective type, but he’s also deadpan comedy gold, and watching him and Hiddleston play off each other is an unexpected delight.

Verdict: Worth the Popcorn
