For sure, The Price of Breaking Up is not going to be a boring series. It goes against the trope and 20 episodes in, there is a lot more that needs to be unpacked. Stunning art too.
Despite the lack of action, it was still a good episode. After all, you can’t have a war with each installment. Still, I would have Daemon or Rhaenyra sit on the Iron Throne any day over Viserys. And any episode with dragons is awesome.
I liked how the world was consistent with that of GoT, from the costumes to the characters. Knowing that these events transpired before the Long Night truly adds a new layer of appreciation for GoT. It was also bittersweet because House of the Dragon very clearly underscored the importance of the role of the Targaryens in the prophecy, none that really materialized in the end of Game of Thrones because showrunners were too busy wrapping things up to work on their Star Wars deal with Disney.

Disagreements in politics is inevitable to begin with. Politics is essentially polarizing and we all have our fair share of belief on almost all political matters. Handling disagreements then presupposes respect for differences of opinions and acceptance of diversity.
I’ve seen plenty of disaster movies but almost none where I was rooting for the demise of humankind. The people in the movie deserved it, and if life imitated art in this scenario, it makes me think that maybe we deserve it too.
All in all, Dune Part 1 felt more like a massive flex from director Villeneuve, showcasing his confidence that Part 2 will be greenlit by Warner Bros, just like he wanted. With an ending like that, who would sit still without seeing how it ends? It also seemed like the movie was intended to correct everything that director David Lynch did wrong in the controversial 1984 classic.
All in all, I would still recommend for Netflix to pick up the series for a second season. We have so much more mythical creatures to explore. Plus, there was too much backstory to unpack in just six half hour episodes. If Trese finds it in her heart to muster even a bit of enthusiasm for anything, Netflix should give her a chance to continue her journey.
