If your client has been arrested for hitting a woman, and she sends your client this text message…
Please let me know you’re okay when you get this. They assured me that you won’t be charged. They said they had to arrest you as protocol when they saw the injuries on me and they knew we had a fight. I’m so angry that they did. And I’m sorry you’re in this position. Will make sure nothing happens about this. I told them it was my fault for trying to grab your phone. I only just got out of hospital. Just call me when you’re out. I love you.
…do not release it to the media. It is not the exculpatory message that you think it is. It is a message that will tell the future jury, He sent me to the hospital over nothing and now I’m all turned around and blaming myself for getting hit. Which will suit the prosecution right down to the ground, but: what’s the victory condition, here? How does this make things better for the client?
PS: I wonder if they scheduled any quick rewrites/reshoots for the second season of LOKI. If so, I also wonder if they got them done before the strike started.
Having had some time to digest it, I think I like LOKI the best of the Disney+ shows so far. Mostly because Tom Hiddleston loves playing this character more than any other MCU actor, with the possible exception of Chris Hemsworth. I’m definitely looking forward to the second season.
I liked it. Probably my favorite of the Disney+ shows so far, and I enjoyed them all. I was particularly impressed that they managed to surprise me with the ending: they did the one thing I honestly didn’t expect. Well done, folks.
PS: I’m not going to say what it was, obviously. Spoilers, and all that.
Then again, I like the Disney+ MCU shows generally. LOKI in particular is the sort of thing that can only be made when a studio has more money than God and is amusing itself by having Tom Hiddleston sing in Norwegian. Which he does a pretty good job at, mind you.
I know, I know. But the family wants the channel and we’re paying for it, so I might as well enjoy the stuff I like.
It’s good, although some people online were a little surprised by the aesthetic. The aesthetic is VERY 1970s pre-digital bureaucratic, with analog everywhere. Personally, I liked it a lot — but I also associate said aesthetic with things like CONTROL or the SCP Foundation, which means I’m expecting LOKI to dive into cosmic horror pretty quick. Guess we’ll see if I’m right!
June 11th. Which is… a little weird? FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER is coming right after WANDAVISION, and LOKI is apparently coming right after that. Are they trying to get people in the habit of not canceling Disney+?
Okay, when I put it that way it makes more sense. Never mind…
Interesting, no? “Marvel Studios will give a solo spotlight to both Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, with each getting a TV miniseries to be offered exclusively through the Disney streaming service that is expected to launch in late 2019.”
