Yes, the first episode was very good, after Loki and WandaVision one wonders how Disney/Marvel could have screwed up The Falcon and the Winter Soldier so much.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was so colossally bad, I was worried about anything else Disney/Marvel might do.

So perhaps I thought Loki was so good because I had such low expectations?

Second installment was better than the first.

Highly recommend.

Don't do Marvel. Don't do Disney anymore...given their wokeness. Do watch some of the old stuff.

Am I mistaken in thinking that they just made Loki gay?

I didn't get gay, but they strongly implied bi-sexual (as with the other character).

That seemed to be the first woke nonsense they have slipped into the show. Otherwise it's still be a really good series.

Gay? No, bisexual, kind of. This is actually completely consistent with the Loki of Norse mythology, as is his 'gender fluidity (which is a silly PC way of saying that Loki can be either male or female depending on his wishes at the moment.) When he appears as a man, he mates with women, when he appears as female, he mates with men. That isn't homosexuality, bisexuality, or really any kind of sexuality that actually exists anywhere in this world.

It isn't 'woke' it is just authentic Norse mythology, pretty much all the Norse gods would screw anything that moved, male or female, the same is true of the Greek gods by the way.

Yeah, except it's tv, not Norse history. So they just made him transgender and bisexual just to do it.

Well that was unexpected. Don't be like me and assume no end-credits scene

No, surely Marvel was just going for historical accuracy.

Hmmmmm. I watched the whole thing and didn’t catch that….unless it was the graphics montage during the credits.

I’ll go rewatch.

So I rewatched and don’t get it.

Saw some images/video as the credits rolled, but don’t see how they fit together I guess….

OK, just saw it - you meant the 4th installment.

But now I’m throughly confused.
