First Impressions : House of the Dragon

First Impressions : House of the Dragon

The ending to Game of Thrones absolutely broke me. My two favorite characters destroyed in different ways, my hopes for their own future and the future of Westeros completely dashed. But here I am, watching a show about their ancestors, who we already know, are also doomed, depending on how you choose to look at it. Why do I do this to myself?   Perhaps it’s that tiny sliver of […]

Review : Bridgerton Season Two

Review : Bridgerton Season Two

Way back when, Bridgerton first released on Netflix, and I started watching it without knowing anything about the series of novels on which this regency show was based.

The only slightly spooky game I’ve played is Back 4 Blood and I quit watching the one spooky movie on Netflix I picked up, because I didn’t think it was scary. Despite my utter […]

Watch : The Dragon Prince Review

Watch : The Dragon Prince Review

After watching the trailer for The Dragon Prince, I was skeptical.  The trailer featured the dialogue lines, “Unstoppable is just another kind of stoppable,” made The Dragon Prince seem cheesy and somewhat childish. But after hearing all the hype, and of course, from loving dragons, I decided to give it a try. I was immediately blown away by the complex storytelling that rivaled any high-fantasy novel or role playing game, […]
