Loot is an American comedy television series created by Matt Hubbard and Alan Yang that premiered on June 24, 2022, on Apple TV+. The series stars Maya Rudolph, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Joel Kim Booster, Ron Funches and Nat Faxon, and received generally positive reviews. In July 2022, the series was renewed for a second season.
It was announced in March 2021 that Apple TV+ had ordered to series an untitled comedy that would star Maya Rudolph, created by Matt Hubbard and Alan Yang. In May, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez was cast, with Joel Kim Booster joining in July. Olivier Martinez was cast for a recurring role in November. Nat Faxon and Ron Funches would be revealed as part of the main cast upon the series first look. On July 11, 2022, Apple TV+ renewed the series for a second season.
AppleTV+'s Loot recently completed its first season. The Maya Rudolph vehicle about a woman whose husband left him for a younger woman after she turned 50 is a relatable and well-trafficked story. Loot's twist is that the wife has been left by a Jeff Bezos-style billionaire whom she'd supported when they were broke 20-somethings and also worked in every aspect of her husband's business from day one until he became a multi-millionaire. Sound familiar Viewers can't help but draw the parallels between Maya Rudolph and Adam Scott's Molly and John Kovak and Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos. However, other than that and the fact that Molly goes on to become a major philanthropist post-divorce, Loot veers into very different territory.
When John leaves Molly, he diminishes her role in his business by saying that she had spent 20 minutes tanning herself by their pool. Molly is lost, as anyone in her position (even without billions of dollars) would be. She reverts to her maiden name of Molly Wells and finds out she has a foundation that performs charitable acts and decides to wander into the office one day with her snarky assistant Nicholas (Joel Kim Booster) where they meet Sofia (MJ Rodriguez), Arthur (Nat Faxon), and Howard (Ron Funches), who turns out to be Molly's cousin. These five characters are the core group in Loot and throughout the 10-episode first season, they learn, grow, and change together and individually. Molly brings a perspective of self-care, valuing yourself, and treating yourself, while the foundation staff instills in Molly a sense of humility and really makes her care about the causes they are devoted to.
Episode 10 of season 1 of Loot left audiences with some big cliffhangers. Spoiler alert: Molly pledges to give all of her money away and ends up back in bed with her ex-husband John. In an interview with TV Insider, Maya Rudolph shared her thoughts about season 2 storylines and Molly's decision to give all of her money away, saying,
It\\u2019s also weirdly tone deaf to make Molly so entrenched in her wealth for the entire season like she\\u2019s fulfilling the position of the nicest member of a Real Housewives cast. Every episode is crammed with reminders of just how rich and pampered she is compared to her staff of passionate, average but engaged people whom she can\\u2019t help tempting with her exorbitant life. Those two realities don\\u2019t mesh at all and that conflict highlights how tough it is to rally around Molly as someone to root for when she\\u2019s got little to complain about and is so blind to the people who need help she can give. Without Rudolph\\u2019s inherent warmth and humor, Molly would be a straight-up unlikeable cartoon of a human being, not to mention reductive to actual women who were married to billionaires and came out of those failed marriages with true philanthropic purpose.\\u00a0
Circling back to Loot\\u2019s Apple TV+ cousin Ted Lasso, both shows have first season episodes that dive into exes having a confrontation at a charity event. In Lasso\\u2019s \\\"For the Children,\\\" Rebecca suffers the passive aggressive humiliation of her ex trying to one up her at her own event. But through her friends and her own self worth, she walks away triumphant. In Loot\\u2019s \\u201cThe Philanthropic Humanitarian Awards,\\u201d the ex dynamic is much the same. But because of how Molly is shown with no real agency up to this point, when she says that she funded his early dreams until he made it big, and he counters that she sat at the pool for 20 years, there is a bite to that barb that the show\\u2019s writing doesn\\u2019t discount. Molly and her lack of agency make the insult land with some truth. But why would the show let a jerk like him be the instigator of her self worth when there are myriad ways she could have done that herself by meaningfully meeting the people the Foundation is helping, or just shedding the McQueen outfits and jewelry for an episode where she can connect to her own calling The writers don't seem bothered with giving Molly an inner voice or motivations, which is so strange when you have a titan like Rudolph leading the show.\\u00a0
Unfortunately, Loot plays like one of those comfort sitcoms that you watch in the background while doing other things. And that\\u2019s fine, but the show had the potential to be so much more. The series finally gives Molly some agency in the season finale, \\u201cThe Silver Moon Summit,\\u201d but by that time the season feels like an exercise in bland, wheel-spinning storytelling that was wasted time when it could have pushed up this episode to mid-season and really given the cast and characters some juicy stories to explore and play with. Instead, it dangles a second season with more promise than the first and that\\u2019s asking for a lot of patience it hasn\\u2019t earned.
By Friday's season 1 finale, billionaire Molly Novak (Maya Rudolph) announces plans to give away all of her money after a ten-episode arc focused on her kooky journey to self discovery, supported by no-nonsense Sofia (Michaela Jaé Rodriguez), sardonic Nicholas (Joel Kim Booster), affable Howard (Ron Funches), and potential love interest Arthur (Nat Faxon), among others.
YANG: I mean, we love this idea. We always, throughout the course of the show, knew that one of the driving forces was that Molly would be influenced by her coworkers at Wells Foundation to open her eyes to what was going on in the world around her, and have that sort of intellectual and emotional growth. They'd change her in ways that are positive. And she gives this speech. So she has this victory in a professional sense, but you also want there to be some conflict and storytelling juice left for future seasons. One of our writers, Anna Salinas, had a really good idea: What if she takes some professional steps forward, but one huge personal step back
-Valor could be used to buy a targetted piece from the other four dungeons.Giving you a choice to either upgrade ilvl the gear you farmed in the available four dungeon in that season. Or buy the piece your spec really needs from the inaccessible dungeons. If we were to use the current season as example, you could target a 262 piece ( or even lower ilvl if the value seems too high ) or upgrade 1 maybe 2 items to 272 for same price.
The fact that the available loot will change with each patch is one of the things I like best about the idea. It will shake up the meta with each patch, and spare us from having to farm the same trinket from the same dungeon every tier.
in whatever version of the Great Vault we will likely see, will the vault have only DF gear (current season rotation, or both current and off season dungeons), or will it drop gear from any of the current season dungeons, DF or older xpacs
I would also consider dropping the seasonal affix from 10 to 5 so that more players can experience it, and get attuned to the mechanic. I often see players say that they are intimidated by it at level 10 because of the challenge of bringing a key up to that in the first place, as well as the fear of messing up the route because of inexperience with the new seasonal.
Exile Isle has 11 chests and an Oathbound Chest. Additionally, it has a Holo-Chest, floor loot, and several ammo boxes. While we don't recommend this location in Trios or Squads, it should be perfect for Solo or Duos game modes.
