    Midsommar (2019)

    I must say, I'm glad I watched the series Vikings before this, as it prepared me for a lot of what I saw. I would call this an update of the original Wickerman, but gross. Seriously, Some have complained that we didn't need the opening section with Dani's family for the movie to work, but I disagree. We needed it to (1) understand the level of pain she is dealing with, (2) understand why she would be so willing to turn on Christian in the end, and (3) empathize with her at the outset. Without the opening section, she can more easily be dismissed as the "moody, kooky girlfriend." Instead we're right there with her and understand the enormity of what she's been dealing with, which in turn makes us that much less sympathetic toward Christian. ETA: Consequently, I wonder what happened to that friend she spoke to on the phone in the beginning. I kept thinking: "Listen to your friend; she is so spot on." Then poof! we never heard from her again.

    The Dragon Prince

    No release date yet for Season 3, but some interesting tidbits from the Comicon panel (mild spoilers). So apparently dragons can talk?

    She-Ra And The Princesses Of Power

    She-Ra Season 3 trailer is up. I hope we get some good backstory! ETA: One big spoiler from the Friday Comicon panel:

    S03.E09: Heroic

    LOL, I thought he looked familiar! I was trying to remember where he was from. I will say that despite the little action, I did like this episode because it reminded me of Season One, when June nearly went crazy because she was locked in her room. It shows that you can be tortured even when you're not being physically harmed or forced to watch someone be harmed.

    Spoilers For the Hulu Show

    So in the sneak peak for next week's episode, it looks as though the Waterfords are going to try and pressure/harm Commander Lawrence and his wife. Sigh. Still no sign of Emily or Moira...

    S03.E09: Heroic

    When Janine makes more sense than you, it's time to rethink your priorities... Nice ending, glad to see that June is getting her mojo yet, but did we need to spend 95 percent of the hour watching her go mental?
  7. If you think about it, how many of the prestige dramas we've watched over the years were written by women? The ones who did/do write them tend to be the showrunners, so they wouldn't be available for shows like this. There may not have been enough women with significant prestige drama experience.

    Spoilers For the Hulu Show

    I thought I read in an article that Lydia had a son out of wedlock that she was ashamed about. Does anyone else recall this?

    Spoilers For the Hulu Show

    OMG, can it really be true? Are people in-universe starting to get as sick of June as we are? Promo for Episode 309

    S03.E08: Unfit

    That was... interesting. The Aunt Lydia flashback sequence was promising, but felt unfinished. We know how she ended up, but what wasn't clear was how/why she transitioned from "uptight and feels ashamed of her temporary loss of control" to "punish the bitch and screw love." There's more to the story and I hope we see it. The Ofmatthew thing was so over the top. She was bullied, I get it, but to attack Janine, the one handmaid who was nice to her? (And poor Janine. How many times has she been beaten up now?) The last few minutes were insane. Aunt Lydia will blame June more than ever now, at least if this show still made any sense. I hope we get Emily and Moira next week.

    S01.E06: The House of Special Purpose

    The daughters' behavior was annoying in this and throughout the episodes. They were so giggly and naive -- teehee, we're going to be rescued. In real life, the Romanovs were a lot more depressed, and Olga especially seemed to sense that they weren't going to get out of it alive, even before her parents.

    S01.E04: War

    Why did they neglect to show that Nicholas's cousin, Dimitri, was involved in Rasputin's murder as well? Felix Yusupov didn't kill him alone.

    S01.E02: The Boy

    In reality, the explosion of Serge's carriage was far worse than showed on screen. Also, it's interesting they don't mention that at the time, Serge and Ella were raising Serge's niece and nephew, Maria and Dimitri. The latter has a rather notorious role with Rasputin.

    S01.E01: The Chosen One

    Some interesting information about Rasputin. I liked it for the most part, though it bothered me that Sergei (also known as "Serge") didn't look anything like his real-life counterpart.

    S03.E06: Chapter Six: E Pluribus Unum

    That somehow didn't bother me, after watching Chernobyl.
