What If...?

I'm not really a fan of this kind of animation style.  There are some interesting plots, and I wonder if this is ever going to cross the 616 universe, or if they're going to tackle any of the existing multiverse.

Well the trailer mentions a multiverse...but now that I think about it, what is the difference between an alternate timeline and an alternate universe, anyway?

Based on my understanding, if something different happens in one timeline, it branches off into a new timeline (alternate) which will create a new (alternate) universe.  So the multiverse is basically different timelines that branched off from the original timeline. 

I've been hearing a lot about "Sacred Timeline", so I would guess this would be the Earth-199999 or the MCU?  I'm sure a lot of this is explained in the Loki series, I just need to wait a few more days before I can finally binge watch it.

If I understand it correctly alternate universes (maybe not 'alternate') were always separate, like siblings, while alternate timelines branch off from a universe.

I get it... so an alternate timeline could vary significantly from the original in one specific way, like a major event happened to one person and it diverges from there, but a multiverse can be different in myriad of ways either minute or major.

I'm waiting for the final episode to drop before binge watching everything.  Saves me the suffering of waiting should I like what I'm watching.

Same here. I started in on the first episode but it was a little cringy. So I'll wait to swallow it all in one go, like a sort of weird movie

Based on the concept of What if..?, It's obvious that not every episode is gonna have a happy ending.  I'm seeing a lot of memes out there saying how gloomy the episodes are, which for me makes it much more interesting.  Even the comics iterations of this series mostly doesn't have a happy ending.  I'm viewing this series as more like a "Twilight Zone"-esque series.

I was just thinking of twlight zone. it's sort of spooky and a slight b movie feel for them. I don't find them gloomy though, that would signify something is boring, it's definitely not boring.

No Tora, it is not.  Case in point:

Well, Season 1 has wrapped, and I for one found it fun.  Can't wait to see what Season 2 has in store.

Personally, if they're going to explore the multiverse, I wouldn't mind seeing them cross over into other Marvel shows (i.e. Spider-Man and X-Men TAS, Avengers EMH, Spectacular Spider-Man).  Hey, if DC can bring back John Wesley Shipp's Flash and Michael Keaton's Batman, there's no reason the MCU can't do something along those lines.
