4. Ahn's tear during surgery and later opening her eyes.

And that's why we won't have nice things and I can't believe dragons will die for this.

But, alas... he's in love or whatever.

Set nearly 200 years before they did my girl Dany dirty (I’m not interested in arguing with you about this), House of the Dragon is follows the events in George RR Martin’s 2018 book Fire & Blood — the first of two volumes detailing the rise and fall of the Targaryen dynasty. Because the show begins at the halfway point of volume one, we don’t get to see Aegon and his sister-wives bring Westeros to heel. Instead, we’re in the year 101 A.C. when King Jaehaerys I names his grandson Viserys the Prince of Dragonstone and rightful heir to the Iron Throne. This sets off decades of betrayal and infighting (and incest) that culminates in the infamous Dance of the Dragons.

As odd as it sounds, it felt good to be back in this world of political machinations, tragic pregnancies, violent jousting, and dragons. Oh, so many dragons. Sarah and I discussed the season premiere, providing a bit of Westerosi history along the way.

Even though the episode hit all the beats of a series premiere (origins of the hero’s power, training montage, etc.), it still felt like a 30-minute cold open and that’s fine. It set up the quirky tone of the show nicely with hints of higher stakes and bigger dangers to come. Tatiana Maslany shines, but those of us who loved Orphan Black expected as much.

Not having read the graphic novel series, my anticipation for Netflix’s live-action adaptation of The Sandman was based on solely on my love of Neil Gaiman’s other works (American Gods), the visuals in the trailer, and the diversity of the cast. Everything delivered in the first two episodes. Charles Dance’s Roderick Burgess was like if Tywin Lannister went to Hogwarts — and you know he’d have been Slytherin — and Tom Sturridge is about to AMSR his way into reading some Buzzfeed thirst tweets. It’s not until episode two, when Sturridge’s Morpheus witnesses the cost of his absence, that things get truly beautiful.

We doubled up and covered two episodes this week because Paper Girls is just so damn good. The time travel, healing robotic insects, and giant mech are all cool, but the best moments continue to be the ones in which the girls bond. Those scenes are so well-written and the actors bring them to life in a way that feels natural. A few highlights include KJ calling out Mac for the hate speech she repeats, Mac and Erin clearing the air after that whole “you shot me in the gut” thing, and the four new friends unpacking what it means to be decades ahead of all the people and things they love.

We’ll be reviewing episodes 4 and 5 together for next week’s Paper Girl podcast. Really looking forward to seeing adult Tiffany and more of Mac coming to terms with the news about her health and her oddly wholesome relationship with her brother.

We take a break from all the murder with two thoughtful, but still hilarious, episodes focusing on Bunny's surprising connections with those around her and a look into the interrupted father-daughter bond between Charles and Lucy. We might be back to murder soon enough as it seems the newly released Teddy is Will's real father?

So, Bunny's mom did it, right? Also, if there's a next victim, I nominate Amy Schumer.

There were some tech difficulties in three spots so there may be a jump in the conversation but it shouldn't be anything too bad. 

Another good episode. We all hope Kathleen really did read Michael's ass for filth.

One episode in and we're already arguing over which world is real. 

Welcome back, Westworld. We missed you.

She's perfect. I wouldn't change a thing.

Why did I want to see the owl theory? HOWEVER, listening to Sarah describe how it scared the shit out of her and how Ellen thought it would be like a scene in a '90s Debra Winger movie made it all worth it. We all agreed this episode felt the most "TV" so far, but we enjoyed it.

This did not disappoint. Dare I say, it was even better than I thought it would be? Young Leia, an Obi-Wan filled with doubt, a reckless and frightening Inquisitor in Reva, more cute droids, new locations and old favorites. Plus, that reveal at the end of episode 2. I have zero complaints.

Michael stay getting ass and I don't know how. Also, did... did he join a Black gang? That footage had Sophie down bad. 

Next week: Hoot-Hoot

Still enjoying the way they're telling the story, complete with the reenactments of the different theories. The manipulation of the daughters is hard to watch, though. As is the obvious pure-T homophobia.

First, special thank you to Julie for co-hosting with me and for agreeing to help me cover season 2! 

The Hansu episode was tragic, yet beautiful. While it doesn't excuse anything he has done thus far, it does explain a lot. Little is Noa is a spark plug! I'm most looking forward to learning where he is in "present" especially now that we know Hansu came sniffing around. Ugh. And I just know he had something to do with Isak's arrest. Season 2 can't get here soon enough.

Cortana was like, you must not know 'bout me.

Cruelty really is the point. Everything about life for Koreans in Osaka was as hard as Hansu said it would be, but my god won't marginalized folks find a way to have joy? The birth of Noa was a beautiful moment and cemented this new household as a family. I'm so happy this will be back for a second season. Julie and I will be back next week to talk about the final two episodes of season one.
