Loki begins! And Storycast is here to break down its underlying themes and genre conventions. As always, we'll also discuss the works of literature and film that inform it.

Episode 1, "Glorious Purpose," explores the question of free will vs. predetermined fate, and sets up even more thrilling interrogations of that eternal conundrum. It also makes powerful use of the archetype of the dystopian bureaucracy, which informs everything from character to set design.

Join Maeve Adams, Amanda Marcotte, and Marc Faletti as we unpack all of this and more on the Marvelous TV Club's Storycast!
