So … get comfortable. Because we’re going to have to wait a while before we get the second season of ‘House of the Dragon’

Why I don’t have cats:

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Hurricane Ian hit Western Florida as essentially a Category 5 hurricane yesterday afternoon, and we have plenty of weather broadcasting shenanigans as a result.

The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore was nearly taken out by a tree branch:

An Orlando reporter, Tony Atkins, rescued a nurse trapped by flooding:

Meanwhile, a Fox News reporter made the most of a fire hydrant in his coverage:


Also these things happened:

In all seriousness, this was a brutal storm that hit an area that is honestly not usually a target for hurricanes.

If you want to help the people of Florida, CNN has come up with a good group of organizations you can donate to.

Well, well, well. Look who is finally recognizing that supporting actors in TV series of different genres shouldn’t just all be lumped together in one category. Was that so hard, Golden Globes?

Netflix will no longer designate Dahmer as LGBTQ content, which is for the best.

My children who are both Gen Z can not tolerate commercials, so this study suggesting that it is older Netflix viewers who will consider switching to a cheaper ad-supported tier is not surprising to me at all.

House of the Dragon will begin filming season two in the spring of 2023, which is great news, I guess, but that means there’s no way it comes out before late 2023 at the very earliest — 2024 more likely.

Meanwhile, there are rumors bouncing around that Henry Cavill and Elizabeth Olsen might join the cast of House of Dragons next season. Y’all. While I agree they would both be Very Sexy Additions to the series, I’m pretty sure this is just some hard-core wishful thinking on the part of certain fans. Cavill being able to take the time away to film another series — much less another fantasy series — seems highly unlikely, for starters. Still … Targaryens do like to take baths, and if anyone knows how to do a bath scene …

So this is crazy: Jerome Flynn, more famously known as Bronn on Game of Thrones, was once in a cover band with Robsen Green who plays Detective Inspector Geordie Keating in the British crime drama Grantchester. The band was formed after the two of them sang a version of “Unchained Melody” on the show they were on together, Soldier Soldier. It was so popular, people wanted to buy copies of it, and Simon Cowell — that Simon Cowell — hounded them until they agreed to sign a record deal with him. That recording went on to become the second best-selling single of the 1990s. The whole story is right here, and it’s ALMOST as crazy as the fact that Jerome Flynn and Lena Headey — Cersei on Game of Thrones — dated back in 2002, and had such an acrimonious breakup, that it was rumored she refused to appear in any scenes with him.

Netflix has said so little about Benioff and Weiss’s next project, The Three-Body Problem, that I forgot they were making The Three-Body Problem.

You are going to be surprised by this, I’m sure, but gun violence is pervasive on TV and does not accurately reflect reality.

Jimmy Kimmel — who is not a bad guy — admits that his little Emmy stunt did take away from Quinta’s moment (not that that’s what he meant to do).

You’ll be able to rent the Stranger Things house as a themed Airbnb if you are in the Atlanta area in the next few years.

Mila Kunis thinks it’s stupid that her fictional character is married to her real husband’s fictional character. (And she’s not wrong.)

So, if you don’t know, Lizzo played James Madison’s crystal flute (not a euphemism) at her D.C. concert on Tuesday, which she was invited to do by the Library of Congress, and certain white people lost their damn minds.

This is all to say that I’m with this guy:


  • Kleo has been renewed at Netflix for a second season.
  • Power Book II: Ghost might have been renewed for a second season on Starz.
