Came for Rings of Power…

…stayed for Willow. I love what Ken is doing on Force Center, so when he said he was deep-diving Rings with Alden Diaz here, I was over the moon! And I’ve enjoyed the Willow analysis even more. Thank you so much for providing these wonderful spaces to have intelligent, analytical discussions of all these pop culture properties.

Masterly Talk

A refreshing take on all things GOT (and some LOTR) with no snark and the appropriate Stark. I look forward to these episodes as much as I do watching GOT on TV. 🐉🔥🩸

Bettie Bloodshed ,

Heads up

Really enjoying this!!

Please remember Emma d’arcy uses they/them pronouns so refer to them as an actor!!
