In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Loki has been one of the most popular characters since his debut in 2011's Thor. Due to this popularity, Disney+ decided to give the God of Mischief his own show, which premiered in June 2021. In this show, Tom Hiddleston reprises his role as Loki, along with Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius and Eugene Cordero as Casey.

The show starts where Avengers: Endgame left off. The 2012 version of Loki that escaped with the Tesseract during the time heist gets apprehended by the Time Variance Authority (TVA). The TVA is a bureaucratic organization that monitors timelines to ensure the stability of the multiverse. However, after reviewing Loki's actions, the Time Keepers give him a chance to redeem himself by fixing a Nexus event he caused when he escaped.

As fans of Loki know, he has always been a cunning and manipulative character. However, in this show, we get to see a more vulnerable side of him. Loki has to confront his past that has led him to this point, and he starts to question his identity and purpose. Throughout the show, he goes on a journey of self-discovery while working alongside Mobius to stop a mysterious villain who threatens the TVA and the multiverse.

One of the highlights of the show is the pairing of Hiddleston and Wilson. Hiddleston delivers an amazing performance as the God of Mischief, as usual, but it's his chemistry with Wilson that steals the show. Wilson's character, Mobius, is a TVA agent who is trying to solve a case that involves Loki. Mobius is a skeptic when it comes to Loki's intentions, but over time, he develops a sort of friendship with him. The banter between the two is hilarious, and their dynamic is reminiscent of the classic buddy cop films.

The show also explores various themes, such as free will, destiny, and power. We get to see how the TVA has been controlling the flow of time and suppressing free will, which raises ethical questions. The show also touches upon the concept of destiny, and whether it can be changed or if it's set in stone. These themes add depth to the story and elevate it from being just another action-packed superhero show.

Another standout element of Loki is the production design. From the look of the TVA to the various timelines that Loki visits, the show is visually stunning. The TVA has a retro-futuristic aesthetic that is reminiscent of the 60s and 70s, which is a refreshing change from the high-tech look we're used to seeing in sci-fi shows. The different timelines that Loki visits are equally impressive, each with its unique style and tone.

In addition to Hiddleston, Wilson, and Cordero, the show has a talented ensemble cast. Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays Ravonna Renslayer, a high-ranking TVA agent who has a history with Mobius. Wunmi Mosaku plays Hunter B-15, a TVA agent who has a no-nonsense attitude but still manages to be hilarious. Sophia Di Martino joins the cast as a mysterious character that is shrouded in secrecy.

Overall, Loki has exceeded expectations and has set up an exciting future for the MCU. The show is funny, thought-provoking, visually stunning, and features standout performances from the cast. It's a must-watch for Marvel fans, and even for those who aren't familiar with the MCU, there's enough intrigue and action to keep them hooked. With only six episodes in its first season, the show manages to tell a complete story while leaving room for further exploration in future seasons.

Loki is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on June 9, 2021.
