Original writing & sensational performances, they created it out of nothing while jedis can still be downstream

Mandalorian is gimmick marketing that appeals to LCD

its a Star Wars show not about Star Wars. Jedi, Empire.....

felt like a show about something else that would have failed so that people would watch it like that god awful Joker movie

so no didn't like Andor...... the hispanic chick in it tho..... she could catch the D.

Either or. Both are great in their own way. Have you never seen these 2 shows?

Me and my girl have been consuming RuPaul's Drag Race seasons since December. It's the most fun I ever had in a reality show, since it's also a talent show and full of big characters.

If your significant other ever says he/she wants to watch RPDR, give it a try, everything after season 2 is amazing.

Recently watched The Wire for the first time too, outstanding show.

Just finished last night watching another classic HBO show "Oz", superb show, highly recommend it - dark, violent, funny prison show.

This is the main show as far as I am concerned, always rated Dunk&Egg tales more than ASOIAF

its actually an interesting and fun story. Unlike Star Wars that the prequel information is awful, the actual series was pretty shit and the New trilogy was worst than the prequels.

they make a cool show with Mando then they just throw 50 shit characters in so they can have their own series.

Seeing your "fat fuck" comments make me think you are maybe mad at him so your judgement is a bit clouded.

I'm not aware of his bibliography tbf but it just seems too much. There's a freaking prequel show running now as well :D

I think this mostly shows that as a viewership base we're dumbing down and we seek familiarity over quality. Not saying that it won't be good, but people will watch something they're aware of over something else. And in turn this means less risk.

Six Feet Under for example as a premise sounds extremely silly if you were to sell it to someone now as a concept, but it's probably a top 5 show in the 2000s. Random works. Familiarity tends to disappoint. I'm looking at you Amazon and Rings of Power!

House of the Dragon is so much better than anything Star Wars, Star Trek or anything else with million prequels and sequels, so that point is kinda moot.

While Dunk & Egg has been on the top of my list for TV adaptations since the amazing third story that is my fav short story ever. I wonder how are they gonna make it work, since it has a lot of foreshadowing, but hey, a show that literary ends with Summerhall incident and Rhaegar getting born (Danys and Viserys' older brother) cannot go wrong
