Teens are often portrayed very one-dimensionally, even in more recent shows. However, “Never Have I Ever” features characters that deal with deeper issues outside of school and who sometimes let their messiness show.
Loki is such an interesting character because he has so much going on under the surface. In previous Thor and Avengers movies, we got a glimpse into his painful past and inner-conflict between good and evil. Having a TV show for Loki to star in gave us a more in-depth look into Loki’s character. At the start, Loki was very much guarded and selfish. But each episode shaped and molded Loki into someone unrecognizable compared to the first time we met him. The writing in this show lended itself so perfectly in shaping Loki into a multi-dimensional, complex character.
“Patriot Act'' masterfully unpacks complicated political, social, and cultural issues in a way that all audiences can comprehend and relate to.
What was done particularly well was how the Kim family relationships and dynamics were written. In Korean culture, family is everything, so I was amazed to see how well that translated throughout the show.
With a perfect combination of action and charisma, the show is endlessly entertaining, wholesome, uplifting, and ridiculously funny.
