REVIEW: What If…? Season 1, Episode 7 “What If… Thor Were an Only Child?”

“What If… Thor Were an Only Child?” makes it clear that this animated Marvel series still has some kinks to work out – some very big, very annoying kinks. The worst impulses of the show take center stage this week, where instead of using a diverging timeline to explore the characters, they j...

REVIEW: Loki – Season 1, Episode 3 “Lamentis”

With “Lamentis,” Loki takes on another of the characteristics of its eponymous trickster and shapeshifts, becoming a buddy cop action-comedy without breaking stride.
