Star Wars Review: Andor – Episodes 1-4

by Miller C. Lashbrook So, you probably noticed that this review is coming a week after Andor‘s three-episode Disney+ premiere. This is partially due to the fact that I wanted to talk about the show on the podcast this past weekend, but also because, as I said on the podcast, I didn’t really enjoy allContinue reading “Star Wars Review: Andor – Episodes 1-4”

TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 6

by Miller C. Lashbrook This week was the major test of the strength of this show. We follow up an extraordinary episode of television with an episode where four of our main characters are recast as we take a ten-year time jump. The show not only pulls off this feat but sticks the landing withContinue reading “TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 6”

TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 5

by Miller C. Lashbrook THIS is television! This show just keeps topping itself each week, and this is the politicking matching the best of Game of Thrones. Weddings are obviously special in this franchise, and in this episode, the… “Gold Wedding”… lives up to the standard set by the Red and Purple weddings. SPOILERS AHEADContinue reading “TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 5”

TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 4

by Miller C. Lashbrook House of the Dragon is so good. This episode was definitely a slow burn with a lot of character work for our four leads. This week I think is really setting up the conflicts for the future. I just cannot state enough how the writing, production, direction, and acting all comeContinue reading “TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 4”

TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 3

by Miller C. Lashbrook House of the Dragon delivers, in my humble opinion, its best episode yet with writing and direction at the level of the best of Game of Thrones.

TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 2

by Miller C. Lashbrook House of the Dragon continues to bring me right back into the old feeling of watching Game of Thrones this week.

Princess Rhaenyra is quickly showing that she is notContinue reading “TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 2”

TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 1

by Miller C. Lashbrook Wow! In the first few minutes alone, House of the Dragon sends us right back to Westeros like we never left.
