For a long time, you could follow a simple rule of thumb: Marvel has better live-action movies. DC has better live-action shows. But slowly, Marvel is breaking that rule, with entries like WandaVision.
Now Loki is here, or at least the first episode is. And I. Am. In. Everyone loves Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and if you say you don’t, then you’re wrong. I already watched the first episode, and I loved it to bits. I love it so much that I will dedicate the next six (five now) weeks to reviewing each episode. And you can read about the first episode right now in our feature story. Just fair warning: it’s full of spoilers. One review down. Five to go.

But before you go, you’ll need the perfect beach towel—one that’ll dry you off after a swim and that’s big enough for you to lay on comfortably whether you’re on a lounge chair or the sand.

And once the day is over, you can throw them in the washing machine and dryer so they’re ready to go tomorrow.
