Have you seen it? Do you think it’s a GAS?
It seems to me that there is a potential for it, but I’m not sure, if it’s complete.
Here is my ideas (SPOILER):
- OS seems like a typical mystery filled action story (OS: Activity, Understanding).
- MC: Loki, the god of mischief. He is a “fish out of water” character in the TVA, with a suspicious backstory (MC: Situation, Past). The show’s theme about predeterminism vs. freewill could be the MC’s thematic conflict, something like Prediction vs. Interdiction, or vica-versa.
- Mobius - the mind-wiped TVA agent (IC: Memory).
- The RS could be the friendship between Loki and Mobius, and the romance between Loki and Sylvie.
The first season finale seems like a Success /Bad story (If the actual protagonist is Sylvie)
Aside from Storyform, I’m wondering if the writers changed something important in Loki’s character. However the acting was great, many reviewers noticed that the series Loki felt like a completely different personality compared to the original character from the movies. It’s a bit like Flanderization (Flanderization - TV Tropes). I wondering if the original Loki has some kind of unique combination of characteristics, which is lost in the series. Or is it a storytelling problem?
What do you think?
