    Omg I can’t wait! I love Matt Smith.

  2. FHMom says:

    It does look good, but I’m not sure if it looks good enough to get HBO back

  3. AppleCart says:

    Every time I drop HBO something sucks me back in. But I will wait until the season is over and just binge this and Barry in one month. And drop it again.

    • Princess Caroline says:

      I’ve basically resigned myself to the fact that HBO Max is just going to be a forever subscribe at this point. Every time I think I can stop it for a month or two something terrific is released. Right now the hubs & I are obsessed with Winning Time & Julia

      • MangoAngelesque says:

        @PrincessCaroline — As soon as HBO Max claimed Doctor Who, I knew I’d be permanently subscribed. There’s a lot of other shows and movies on it that I love, but it’s 💯 the Doctor that locked me down.

  4. Lightpurple says:

    I will never recover from seeing that Madison Cawthorn video, which was inescapable the other night on Twitter.

    • Lucy says:

      I am so glad I haven’t seen it. Cawthorn is the worst and I don’t care what gets him out of office. It would be nice if his sexual harassment of women did it, but whatever. I hope he and Gaetz spontaneously combust, or something

    • minx says:

      I wonder if these male-on-male shenanigans are what will finally turn off his voters—not that he’s a stupid lying traitorous POS. Well, whatever it takes.

  5. JanetDR says:

    I really want to see a series with The Hedge Knight, I’m more in the mood for Dunk and Egg than this drama!

    • GoodTimeGirl says:

      I LOVE Dunk and Egg too. One of the best books I’ve read. Would be fantastic if they make that into a series AND GRR writes more of their adventures.

  6. Michael says:

    I enjoyed the Moon Knight finale. There is a post credit scene that should be watched as well

  7. Jenns says:

    Ramin Djawadi to me was the true star of the GOT series. His music just elevated the show to another level. So after listening to his score in the trailer, and seeing this amazing cast together, I’m cannot wait to watch this.

  8. Becks1 says:

    For some reason I thought this prequel had been cancelled lol. whoops. I’ll watch it, probably.

    We’ve been watching Moon Knight – I’m only half following along as I read a book – but my husband really likes it, he says it reminds him of that TV show Legion that he loved.

  9. bettyrose says:

    It looks good, but in the original GoT it was sort of a surprise (at least to those of us who hadn’t read the books) that the women emerged as the biggest badasses of the story. This show seems like it starts out to make the struggle of the female characters front and center. Which obviously is great as long as it’s not self-conscious about that in the writing. I don’t like seeing female characters tormented just to make the point that it’s harder for them.

    • FF says:

      Why say “women” emerged as bad-asses when it’s just white women? Ellaria and Missandei didn’t emerge as anything.

  10. Dss says:

    I have questions…..mainly how can someone who is paralyzed from the waist down be jumping anything especially that energetically!!

    • Ange says:

      I don’t know his particular situation but paralysis doesn’t mean all the muscles don’t work or have sensation, I know quadriplegics that can walk. Besides, he’d have some decent upper body strength and would know how to work with his lower body by this stage.

      And ugh, I can’t believe I’ve thought this hard about some gross frat boy and his dry humping lol.

  11. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    If HBO wants to generate interest in House of the Dragon, the best thing they can do is loudly advertise that D&D are NOT involved in it.

  12. NJ says:

    The Moon Knight finale was awesome! It’s best seen rather than read about.

  13. Marceline says:

    I see the wigs are still terrible. And nope. After the sexist vaguely racist mess GoT devolved into, nothing would induce me to watch this.

  14. MangoAngelesque says:

    I really love Emma’s Louis Vuitton suit. Her styling of it was perfection…it looked even better than how it was done on the runway.

  15. FF says:

    Maybe they should give up on the ASoIaF universe because GRRM is never finishing those books, so it’s a load of comprehensive mythology that goes nowhere fast – never to be resolved.

    GOT might be the only ending that thing get ::shudders::

      Scott Disick is, like most people, a multi-faceted person. He was very young when he started KUWTK and I don’t think a lot of people would have survived documenting the growing pains of their young adulthood publicly, especially under the Britney-era tabloid culture, and then the reality-tv and social media juggernaut that it all became. Once he became a father there was no turning back from the family business and once they became the cultural phenomenon they’ve become, there are very few other people he/they can relate to as peers, so it’s not like leaving for another life was feasible. To top it off, he was one of those who didn’t just party in their 20s, but had to come to terms with being an alcoholic. And he has made a huge share of mistakes that he will have to live with. I don’t wish that on anyone, public or private. But Scott did not end up like Lamar or Rob, he has repeatedly tried to take ownership and get sober and be a good dad and family member and try again. If you watch all of KUWTK, you can see this and see the good family member he is when he is doing well. It’s moving to see his reaction in one of the “About Bruce” episodes, how he is with the kids, MJ, Kris, all of the girls, and how much they all love him. I think he’s been insecure and was very entitled at times, made huge mistakes, and above all his alcoholism/addiction issues really caused problems. In light of that, he probably doesn’t deserve the label of 100% douche-even Kourtney said if his substance abuse wasn’t an issue, then they probably would have made it. I’m not making excuses, I’m just having empathy for someone who has been struggling with sobriety since at least age 23, while being a KUWTK cast member from day 1, which resulted in a life that no one could have predicted and must have been very hard to live through. Yet by all accounts he has become a good father and family member and is still trying to be sober and a productive person. Maybe I’m too nice, but I feel like nobody’s perfect and I don’t want to judge, especially not harshly.

    I hope Ana’s career really takes off. She doesn’t need crusty Ben. I want her to obliterate him.

    • FF says:

      Why, did someone force her to date him?

      She seems to be doing just fine, anyway.

      • littlegossipboy says:

        I think I’m just salty about the treatment she received after they broke up. Putting the cardboard cutout in the bin so publicly and him refusing to promote their movie.
