Loki Season One Review

Updated: Nov 23, 2023

This week, I'm going to do a review on the Loki TV show, which, although I genuinely enjoyed, I intensely disliked, such as the overuse of time travel. Of course, there were many things I did like that stood out. I'll start, though, with the dislikes and get that out of the way.

So, in general, I wouldn't say I like the use of time travel, and it's for many reasons. I didn't even like it since "Back to the Future," which tells you just how long I've had this feeling. I feel as though it is a get-out-of-jail-free card whenever something doesn't work out. For instance, Kang the Conqueror is notorious for changing time/traveling through time to fix anything wrong for him. And we see this time and time again where characters don't have to face the consequences of their actions due to traveling in time. Also, I think it's overused; I understand how time travel is used to repurpose characters, but I wish more creative solutions were used.

Additionally, I wouldn't say I liked that Loki seemingly fell in love with a female version of himself, aka Sylvie. I feel like that shows a self-obsessed aspect of Loki's personality, which I don't think is the way he should be depicted. Like going back to The Legends, you don't see him as a self-obsessed being, so it may just be me, but I think it shows an inaccurate side to him in the show.

Lastly, I wouldn't say I liked how this version of Loki didn't face severe consequences for his actions. We should never forget that he willingly teamed up with Thanos to conquer Earth. While Loki is not the head villain, it shouldn't be overlooked that he played a significant role in the invasion and consequent destruction. I understand he is the God of mischief, but there is a distinct difference between mischief and mass murder. And honestly, I'm not sure how a character can atone for such a crime. I do hope, in season two, the show finds a way for Loki to atone for all the chaos that he has committed throughout the Marvel universe.

Now let's get into my favorite parts of season one, which were right after the cloud-like creature was destroyed and when Loki and Sylvie met Kang the Conqueror and what happened after. I like this part because this is where we start to see character development in Loki. It starts to show him as the voice of reason when he tries to talk Sylvie out of killing Kang, which we haven't seen that side of before. However, I still enjoyed that Sylvie killed Kang the Conqueror afterward despite Loki telling her not to.

While I had several dislikes of the first season, overall, I still enjoyed it because it put Loki in a position that he had never been in before. I'm interested to see how that changes his perspective and actions in the future. What are your impressions of it?
