‘The house of the dragon’ and more

There’s a lot out there, after all, and your time is valuable.

TIE: 10. luckiest girl alive (netflix movie)

Mila Kunis stars in this adaptation of Jessica Knoll’s novel of the same name, and when Mila Kunis stars in a movie, people click. Unfortunately, the film would have been better received with an activation warning. However, if you go in with your eyes open (and know that there is a lot of trauma for the protagonist due to a mass shooting and sexual assault), then you can appreciate how the story portrays the strength of Mila’s character to overcome what she has been through. , instead of letting her wealthy fiancé encourage him to bury it deep in her conscience. Also, Scoot McNairy plays her high school teacher who helps everyone sort out the mess.

TIE: 10. shantaram (Apple TV+ series)

Charlie Hunnam Reprises His First Leading TV Role Since Jax Teller collided with a Mack truck in the final moments of Sons of Anarchy. as Hunnam relayed to us, the project was as chaotic as it gets to roll, but he’s thrilled to finally have adapted Gregory David Roberts’ lengthy book for the screen. Hunnam’s character Lin finds a kindred spirit in Shubham Sarif’s fast-talking character Prabhu, and they really are dealing with some nefarious forces. Will Lin ever get out of Bombay? Does she really want her to do it herself? She’s an escaped convict trying to keep his head down after escaping from an Australian prison, so it’s not like he has too many options to stay out of trouble.

9. Winchester (CW series broadcast in various places)

If you are a fan of Jensen Ackles and loved seeing him as Soldier Boy in Boys but they are disappointed to see the frozen character, do not fear. He appears in this new CW series that is already receiving good ratings, and it is not surprising, since it is a Supernatural prequel Jensen’s Dean Winchester narrates this series detailing how Dean’s parents, John (who fought in Vietnam) and Mary (a demon hunter, naturally), saved the world. There are many dark forces and secrets at play, and both John and Marry are dealing with warring family legacies, which they must reconcile before moving forward with a family of their own.

8. rosaline (hulu movie)

Kaitlyn Dever (Loretta!) stars in this reinvention of this Romeo and Juliet side story, in which we find out what happened to the pre-Juliet love interest that Romeo seems to completely forget existed. Rude. However, Rosaline is on her game, so she plans to keep them apart, and we won’t reveal whether or not she succeeds or if they end up killing themselves anyway. Dever never gives a poor performance, and it’s glorious to see her in a project where she’s having a blast.

7. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (Amazon Prime Series)

The first season recently concluded for this epic and fantastical love child of Jeff Bezos, and one can expect him to keep funding this series until he runs out of story. Although this did not receive as much buzz week to week as house of the dragon, you can be sure that most viewers seem to love it because they kept watching it. Finally, Tolkien’s Second Age fable rose with a young Galadriel refusing to pay attention to trolls who complained that this is too “awakened” as a version of Middle-earth.

6. Andor (Disney+ series)

Diego Luna stars in this unusually grounded piece of the Star Wars universe far, far away. The show may not bring the weekly gush through Baby Yoda’s cuteness, but it’s a slow burn that fans seem to appreciate. Also, Cassian Andor is now getting a character study that we rarely see in these Star Wars shows, and although this apparently it will be the last time that Andor plays this rogue hero, it will remain the longest season of tie-in shows in the streaming service’s history (so far).

5. Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story (netflix series) Y Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes (Netflix docuseries)

Ryan Murphy can’t be stopped, and people can’t stop watching shows about serial killers, which is why Murphy’s dramatized version of the prolific cannibal is still gaining a lot of clicks for Netflix. After I’m done hearing people ask what that “smell” is, there’s also Joe Berlinger’s documentary approach to putting Dahmer behind bars. Berlinger previously directed the Ted Bundy dramatized movie starring Zac Efron, and he’s a great Metallica guy, if you’re into that sort of thing. He’s fine, I’m clearly trying to stop thinking about serial killers.

Four. Interview with the Vampire (Streaming AMC series on AMC+)

Louie and Lestat are finally revealing their romance, which is good, but they’re also very messy lovers. This show ends up being overall better than the 1990 film starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, and Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm from game of Thrones) gives us a much more stratified (and socially responsible) Louis than we’ve seen before. Anne Rice lovers can wait too The Mayfair Witcheswhich will star Alexandra Daddario as the heir to a long legacy of magical beings.

3. The vigilant (netflix series)

More Ryan Murphy. In this project, he gives his audience a supporting cast of Margo Martindale, Richard Kind, Mia Farrow and Jennifer Coolidge. One or a few of them may or may not be terrorizing the Brannock family (including Naomi Watts and Bobby Cannivale) with threatening letters. This show is a bit cheesy and not full of triggers, and while the real-life storyline never saw a resolution to The Watcher’s identity, this show takes viewers into a long list of imaginary scenarios. This one is definitely worth watching, as long as your expectations don’t include a definitive ending.

two. end halloween (Universal Movie Streaming on Peacock)

Jamie Lee Curtis says goodbye to Laurie Strode after literally decades of dealing with the sh*ttiest brother in the world. Really! But for a final round Mike Myers is back and the end product is satisfactory but not surprising, and fear not because David Gordon Green isn’t done with horror yet. Production will soon begin on the reworking of the Blumhouse version. The Exorcist franchise, which is probably something no one expected from the director of Your Highness Y quick pineapple.

1. house of the dragon (HBO series on HBO Max)

It seems like yesterday that many of us doubted that the game of Thrones franchise could top the disappointing final season of George RR Martin’s flagship series. A pleasant surprise: This is a highly entertaining, action-packed, and well-executed prequel that takes us back to all the soap operas that finally ended a dynasty. Finally, event TV really is back, so take a spagliato negroni (with Prosecco in it) and put your feet up (while avoiding Larys Strong) because the Dance with Dragons has officially begun.
