All in all, the games were intelligently crafted for Alice in Borderland Season 2. The backstories were told effectively to connect the players to the games. And the final twist was chef’s kiss. It was an epic end to two seasons of deaths and it was the perfect explanation for the title and how the characters were linked in the real world. And because there were still some questions left behind, I personally would not mind another season of Alice in Borderland.

All in all, The Menu was not a bad movie. It had an interesting premise and a creative approach to food and the artistry and passion involved in serving the perfect dish. And it was beautifully crafted. For me, it ticked all of the boxes for technicality but I felt that the general sense of cynicism made it hard to connect with the film, or any of its characters.

HoTD is doing a good job covering diversity and gender issues, actually without being too preachy about it. Its just part of the realities of the narrative and the show needs not explain itself overmuch about what it is trying to say. Its an intelligent way to treat its audience and it is something, I think that is not lost on the show’s viewers. So thank you, HBO.

We Light the Way laid many foundations for the second half of the season. It seems that Rhaenyra made more enemies than allies with her marriage to Ser Laenor, and you can see the innocence of the first few episodes peel away with each heartbreak for both the Princess and ex- best friend. To say that the episode was stressful would be an understatement. Still, it was a great set up for the excitement that is to come with each faction declaring war.
