Ten years later and Criston Cole is still employed and still a whiny, masogynistic bitch and petty Queen Alicent is only too willing to fuel his insecurities as he fuels hers.

I'm not holding my breath that I'll get it, but I'm shipping Saeroyi and Yi-seo something fierce. Saeroyi continues to be the type of character who brings out the best in those around him -- making him the natural enemy of someone like Jang who poisons everyone -- and it's going to be interesting to see if his ragtag crew can really pull this off.

Yi-seo has entered the chat and just like that our alliance has shifted. Hey, we're a sucker for a wild child with no filter. On the slow burn revenge front: FIFTEEN years? Saeroyi has a 15-year plan to take down Jang. This man has been living off nothing but petty and spite. And we approve.

All a king wants to do is celebrate the second name day of the son he had with his daughter's bestie. Oh, and marry said daughter off to a Lannister frat boy. He doesn't want to be bothered with a war that he's losing or quieting the whispers that call for his daughter's removal as his heir. 

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

Speaking of dragons... 

Those Targaryen boys just built different. Fueled by nothing but petty spite, Daemon ended the war in the Stepstones in five minutes, all so he wouldn't have to thank his brother for the help he didn't ask for. I stan forever. 

Listen as Sarah and I break down the latest episode of Viserys, What Is You Thinking?

We end the season with the Paper Girls separated, but with a clear mission: don't invent time travel! No idea where Mac and KJ were sent (hopefully someplace without dinosaurs), but Tiffany and Erin are in the '70s. I hope it's kind to little Black and Chinese girls.

If there's one thing King Viserys is gonna do every time, it's make the wrong damn decision. Not that marrying a 12-year-old would be BETTER... What he needs to do is worry about those festering wounds and just let his daughter learn to rule from someone who actually knows how to do it. But, alas... he's in love or whatever. 

Thankfully, Corlys and Daemon are both over it and it looks like we'll get some action dragon next week. And can we please, please, please keep precious Laena away from King's Landing until she's at least 30?

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.

We love an old-fashioned tale of revenge and when it comes with a side of questioning class, privilege, and belonging in South Korea, even better. And if it stars Park Seo-Joon? Well, now Itaewon Class is just showing off.

We were instantly invested in the relationship between Park's ex-con turned bar owner Park Saeroyi and his hardworking, generous father played by Son Heung-Ju.

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.

Based on the graphic novel by Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang, Paper Girls is a live-action 8-episode series set in the '80s and follows four girls on their morning paper route. Too bad it's the morning of Hell Day.

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.

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?

I'm joined by Sarah and Ellen to discuss the first three episodes. We're all aware of the case and watched the documentary this series is largely based on so we will be discussing events that might be considered "spoilers," but as this IS based on a true story that's to be expected.

The casting/acting has been the highlight so far, and they've managed to tell this in a way that's interesting to those who've seen the documentary.

Yoooo, this was way better than I expected. Admittedly, my expectations were set by past live-action video game adaptations. I loved the way this felt like playing Halo.

Absolutely gutted by that death. Despite the foreshadowing, we'd hoped they'd be safe. The backstory of Hyun-su's bullying is as infuriating as it is confusing. Was his bully just a sociopath?
