  1. It's that Lazlow considers Sean to be his best friend, but I didn't need to hear about Sean's poor money management for another week. Between gambling away all his savings to whining that his friends won't partake in his MLM scheme, I'm sick of him. Didn't think the courtroom thing was very funny either. It felt forced in there. I do like how Guillermo is standing up for himself more. Even though he couldn't play Nandor and Nadia off each other for long, I don't blame him for trying.
  2. Saw this on Disney+ since I was bored, lol. Have to agree with the general consensus, it's not a bad movie, but adds nothing. The realistic visuals take away from any expression the lions made, and the voice acting (with the exception of Rogen, Eichner, Kasumba, and Oliver) was weak. Florence Kasumba really stood out with Shenzi. Just menacing as hell. Something that really bothered me visually was that I couldn't distinguish any of the lionesses apart. With the male lions, Scar had that malnourished looking mane while Mustafa had the grandest one. Simba's was similar. But I coul
  3. I'm not sure how the TVA would work in s2, especially since MoM will have been out by that point. But it was by far the best setting and I would love to see more of Casey, Hunter 15, etc. Even Ravonna. As much as I loved the Loki/Mobius dynamic, this is an entirely different Mobius, so the relationship would be different. Would love to see Jotun Loki in action at least once. I don't know why they didn't show anything from the first film when the events in it were so important. Sylvie has potential as a character, but they need to let that forced romance go. It doesn't help tha
  4. I love the variant posters, but damn, President Loki and Kid Loki's faces have been photoshopped way too much. They look like mannequins.
  5. Much better episode than the past 2 weeks. I wish we had gotten more with the other Loki variants, but they got the point across about who Loki is. I'm in the minority, but I really didn't see the big deal with President Loki and alligator Loki. I dunno. Maybe because their scenes were so brief? Loki has shown a lot of growth, though. He's finally admitting his wrongdoings and can understand why people don't trust him. He clearly wants a connection and I'm glad to see him reaching out. Richard Grant was amazing as Classic Loki. The perfect blend of cynical and bravado. He did
  6. It felt like a cheap framing device. I'm fine with Loki and Sylvie bonding, but I wish it hadn't been implied that they could possibly save Lamentis, even if they were only trying to save themselves. The Pompeii scene worked because it was brief and while Loki was practically giddy with excitement, Mobius reminded him that they were there for a reason, and that it was poor taste to be openly celebrating. But they spent a whole episode on Lamentis, showing the citizens who were struggling to survive. I knew Loki and Sylvie would make it, but it happens so fast, no muss, no fuss a
  7. I had this exact thought. I don’t know if it was poor direction or what, but Ravonna actually stood back when Sylvie grabbed the TemPad, and none of the guards made ANY attempt to stop her from escaping. I was like "Why are they just standing there?" I could see if Sylvie had a weapon or if she was running too fast for them to catch her, but nope, they just...let her go. And she’s been on the run since childhood and no one has managed to catch her? Plus all that build up for Lamentis to go down in flames just for the TVA to conveniently show up to the rescue? There was a slight impl

    As much as I loved the drunken scenes, I see what you mean. One of Loki's characteristics is that he's always thinking ahead (like he told Mobius that he's always "10 steps ahead of you") which makes it hard to get the jump on him. After he and Sylvie got on the ship, it's like Loki just said screw it and did whatever. I couldn't understand why Loki wasn't interrogating Sylvie more, and I really couldn't believe that Loki would just get drunk and potentially botch the mission. He finally had the Variant and she couldn't escape without the TemPad from Loki. Why would he let himself get com
  9. Wow, that was good. So glad it did not disappoint. Tom Hiddleston owns this, no doubt, but he's got an interesting plot as well as a great supporting cast. That life reel couldn't have been easy to watch, but it had to be done. What I didn't get was that they never referenced the first Thor movie, or what happened to the Frost Giants. There's no question of mind control or influence when it came to that. Loki's actions on Asgard were entirely his own. He tried to wipe out a whole race of people just to keep his secret hidden, and I couldn't believe that Mobius never brought that up.
  10. I know I'm past the Auntie age because I had to look up what a bodycon dress is. And the Millie Rock. 😭 Gabrielle is this season's MVP. The gang retreat was better than the first and she owned the Auntie sketch, along with Laci as the fairy godmother. I kept rewinding that one. But the vampire/demon stuff at the end just felt like a poor way to shoehorn the rest of the cast into it. The apocalypse side plot still doesn't make sense, but even worse, it's just not funny. It wasn't that logical last season, but at least the cast was just hanging out and having fun, rather than try
  11. Honestly, I thought that was a terrible premier. Who wrote these skits? Some of those lines were just straight up cringe. I do like Robin, but her acting is too hammy. She just tries too hard and exaggerates everything. I understand Quinta couldn't come back this season, but they couldn't even mention her during the apocalypse scenes? As it was, it didn't really make sense. Robin gets knocked out and ends up in some random warehouse? I dunno, it was just dumb. And Quinta's absence is noticeable in the show. As for the newbies, it's still early. Laci was pretty charmi
  12. The man really can wear a suit. That three piece that he wore during the first Avengers promo was everything. Getting more excited for this, although I don't want my hopes too high. Also, I saw a box of Boku juice in the very end trailer. Does anyone remember that? The sophisticated high school juice box of the 90s. Ha!
  13. Going to direct streaming was the best thing possible for this movie, because it meant that I could fast-forward/skip all the boring stuff. Was anyone really clamoring to see the Russells again? Why bring them back? Anytime one of the Madison's Scooby Doo scenes happened, I just zoned out. Sadly, I wouldn't have cared if they ended up as casualties of Godzilla or Kong. What a waste of Brian Tyree Henry. Suprisingly, Jia was a great addition, and one of the only humans that I genuinely felt for. I think the writers had wanted people to like Madison the way they liked Jia, but Madison
  14. So this is the April Fool’s joke this year. The Aqua Teen (or Aqua Child) theme song dubbed with childrens voices is cracking me up. I just wish I knew the lineup. I think they’re going to show an episode of Metalocalypse, along with a few other retired shows.
  15. That was good. The slower pace doesn't bother me, I think we needed that after the batshit crazy WandaVision. I didn't care for the first fight scene. It just looked so cheap for some reason. And the closeups to Sam when he was in the air was terrible. Closeups on scenes like that don't usually look good, imo. I truly sympathize with Sam wanting to save the family boat, but I'm on Sarah's side. She's been on her own for five years, raising two small children, trying her best to keep things afloat. She clearly doesn't want to sell it, but I see why she feels she has no choice.
