Twilight for Grownups: A Review of A Discovery of Witches on AMC

By Jen P

As some of you may recall, T. Mack and I delved into The All Souls Trilogy back in 2015. We read the goliath of a novel that is A Discovery of Witches, drank some moscato, and dropped our wine-honest thoughts on camera so you could decide for yourself whether it’s worth the read (You can check that out here). But even though the series was a hefty endeavor, I still found some magic in it, and when I heard it was being made into a TV show, and that many of my favorite actors would be cast in leading roles, I couldn’t wait to check it out. That was four years ago! But finally, it’s here! I binge-watched it like a lunatic, and here’s what I have to say about this slightly pretentious, vampire/witch romantic drama:

Winter is Here!

by T. Mack

Game-of-Thrones

The long night is over for Game of Thrones fans, who had to wait more than 595 days for the return of the series’ final season. On Sunday night, the show returned in all its epic glory and did not disappoint. There were awkward meetings as some characters came together for the first time in the history of the series. There were heartfelt reunions as other characters came back together for the first time in years. There were several key revelations, a couple of good chuckles, one horrifying scare, and a kick-ass dragon ride!

GOT, ssn 8, 1

A whole lot was crammed into a single hour of television. I am not complaining, though. We’ve been waiting two years for this and with only 6 episodes this season, we have no time to waste. The episode was, in my opinion, a terrific start to the final season.

GOT Winter Is Here

If you didn’t get a chance to see it, or are just wondering what all the hype is about, check out the HBO special below, “Inside the Episode” for details and the inside scoop on Season 8, Episode 1. (Watch at your own risk, for the video is dark and full of SPOILERS!)

Did you watch the season premiere of Game of Thrones? What was your favorite part? Which was your favorite reunion? Let me know in the comments below.

Netflix has become a powerhouse source for content. From Oscar-award winning films to critically acclaimed television series and even stand-up specials that become pop-culture phenomenons. Netflix is building a reputation for producing (or at least acquiring the rights to distribute) content that is intriguing and worth talking about.

One of their latest offerings is Love Death + Robots, an animated anthology series for adults in which each short episode tells a story of — you guessed it — love, death, and robots… or some combination of the three. Continue reading
