Fun, but has some cuss words

It is great fun, great acting, great show overall, but has some cuss words like asshole, and has references to Loki having a girl-friend, etc..

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (15):
Kids say (75):

This delightful, thoughtful addition to the MCU brings all the quirky fun and humor of Thor: Ragnarok while deftly exploring some pretty big questions about existence and free will. Loki smartly plays off the supercilious Loki with the perfect foil -- the warm, earthy Wilson -- and their buddy-comedy banter is a pleasure to behold. There are also tons of mostly grown-up jokes about the TVA being mired down by endless paperwork and bureaucracy (shades of Joe Versus the Volcano). And it's always a treat to see Eugene Cordero (The Good Place), this time as a hapless desk jockey who's spent so much time working at the TVA that he doesn't even know what a fish is.

Viewers understand that Loki's ultimate goal is to be king of Midgard (Earth) and rack up the rest of the universe after that. And, as we've seen in previous films, Loki is very, very hard to trust. But this series explores what the trickster god is truly made of and doesn't shy away from asking the big questions. It gently explores the ideas of determinism and free will while solidly remaining an action-packed superhero revel, and this balance represents the very best of what Marvel can do. Loki's premise opens up tons of fun possibilities -- even in the sometimes bloated world of Marvel spin-offs and iterations, viewers will likely be left wanting more than a limited series this time around.
