Pop Style Opinionfest: Low, Nuclear, and Big Dragon Energy

Posted on May 17, 2019

 

Darlings, we flipped on our mics and once again decided to go all-in on TV Tawk this week. What can we say? We have a lot of opinions on things.

First, we offer some running commentary to go alongside our recaps of last night’s Project Runway and RuPaul’s Drag Race. For the former, we talk a bit more about how that social justice-flavored challenge just didn’t work. For the latter, we go into a bit more detail on the idea that while this season’s queens are talented, they aren’t bringing the intensity we’ve come to expect from Drag Race girls.

 

 

After that, Lorenzo has MUCH to say about HBO’s limited series Chernobyl, which is about … you know, Chernobyl. Tom had trouble getting past the first episode because it’s so relentlessly bleak, but Lorenzo stuck with it and he can’t gush enough about how wonderful it is.

And finally (in every sense of the word), we put our last thoughts on the most-discussed pop culture issue of the week, the hard turn Daenerys took toward [SPOILER] in the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones. Having cooled down from our initial review and after listening to many different perspectives on the matter, we … still think it has some issues, whether it makes sense for the character or not. Three words by way of comparison: Sept. Of. Baelor. Oh, yes. Points are getting made.

 

 

 

So pour yourself a cup of ambition, yawn and stretch and try to come to life, and then settle in for a boatload of opinions and goof-talking from your two favorite cartoons. Thank you for listening, dolls!
