House of the Dragon hit it’s mid-season and with some pretty big changes to come I thought I’d talk about my thoughts on the first half. Especially since some of my issues can be summed up in episode five alone. Spoiler warning!
It was a surprise to me during the run-up to the recent movie when I heard Amy March was an unpopular/controversial character amongst Little Women fans. I thought why? And then I was thinking you’re a card-carrying member of the Catelyn and Sansa Stark fan club (books anyway) and the three characters actually have a … More Amy, Cat & Sansa: My Favorite Unpopular Characters
My apologies if you have a particular love of like cats and don’t want them lumped in with CGI creatures- I do to. Or vice-versa. But I’m lumping them all together with the great performances by animals, CGI creatures of all sorts, and of course one very famous puppet.
The Emmy’s were last night and I must admit for a show I wasn’t even going to watch as I thought they’d just give everything to Thrones and Veep I’m a little surprised by how happy I was with the winners!!
In super exciting news Circe- which was one of my favorite reads in a very long time- got a straight-to-series order from HBO.

I mean don’t get me wrong there’s been some good stuff even some gems … More Halfway through 2019: A Little Look Backward & Forward
So Game of Thrones has ended and yeah, I have some thoughts 🙂 Disclaimer: Spoilers obviously. Other disclaimer: I read the spoilers when they were released so I think by the time it aired I was more resigned than anything else. My biggest problem with this show has always been the writing and it didn’t … More The More Things Change the More they Really Don’t
So The Bells happened. I’m going to talk about the last episode of Game of Thrones which did in some fairly major characters (in more ways than one) and why I’m worried about the books for the first time and not just that Martin probably won’t finish them.
