I do have to say: Marvel (MCU and now I have to say Extended with the small screen stuff, right?) is now outside of my osmosis zone. Story beats and ideas and arcs that I've already read or just somehow know about. I didn't know there was a TVA so I don't really have anything to base even assumptions on where it maybe could be going.

Speaking of Mobius and recursion and 4th dimensional thinking...

I read a youtube or a podcast that said that the name Mobius is a reference to the Mobius strip, an "impossible shape". :blank:

Dipass, quit trying to sound smrt. We made them in kindiegarden with paper and tape. Ain't shit impossible about it.

Maybe the podcaster lives in 2-dimensional Flatland, did you ever think of that, no you didn't. Damn 3D bigots.

We just got back from Black Widow.

Without spoilers, it’s set after Civil War (which we watched this afternoon), and it’s really good.

My first thought:

Well of course it is. The whole dang MCU is set after the civil war... oh, the movie Civil War. NEVERMIND.

Nothing new to add, though we haven't discussed the last few episodes of [i]Loki[/]. Just posting to say that I'll be doing a Watch Party with my daughter while she's in college tonight.

And I am just ever so excited about it

Finally got around to watching this and finished Ep1.

I’m enjoying this long-form-movie style of shows, that’s both going somewhere but has time to breath, Tenet would have been much better as a 6 part show like this, and I can’t imagine what compressed mess a 2 hour ‘Loki and the TVA’ movie would have been.

Everybody liked the final episode of Loki a lot more than I did. I mean I didn't not like it but I was kind of like "okay" but then everybody else was like "That was awesome! Best MCU TV finale ever!" I liked the episode before it a lot more. I think I need to rewatch them both when I am less tired.

Nah, I think you're right. It was just OK. The finale of The Falcon et al. was more emotional and resonant, I thought.

My one key problem with Loki (the show)



As for the ending? Yeah, okay. It was more in line with what I might expect from an introduction to the MCU Multiverse starring gods of trickery. I like that Sylvie stayed true to who she was and what she wanted to accomplish.

In case anyone has missed it: VERY SPOILER. ONLY IF YOU'VE SEEN THE WANDERVISION AND THE LOKI.

I binged it, as I feel a long form movie should be, and loved their attention to details. Like they could have had any ol special effect boom for the reset bombs but they decided to show us how they work.

You’re not wrong. Episode 5 was clearly the stronger of the two. About half way through production they got green lit for a second season and weren’t expecting it. I wonder how much retooling the final episode got, as it not only needed to setup for Doc Strange but also season 2.

You’re not wrong either. While a massive asshole Loki would have been more annoying to follow around, he would be stinging much more from what to him was very recent defeat.

Very good pointing out the attention to details. I wasn't watching for that stuff but nice to see that it's all connected at that level. It didn't break the suspension so when That Thing was presented it was "oh, okay" and because of color theory (I suppose) it made sense.

I also realized this gives everyone a legitimate “A wizard did it” response to overzealous fans for all previous films.

In that case, I would like to have a word with the powers that be regarding what happened between Hawkeye and Natasha on Vormir.

Black Widow spoiler:
