I've been semi-present in my attendance for all these recent fantasy series, only was enthusiastic in my response re: Sandman, but very excited for this tbh

Okay this was a great start. The antithesis of _Rings of Power_ in the best way, in that I’m very much looking forward to the rest of the season.

hey you know what, this show is great
queer and silly and bright, giving 0.5% of a fuck for the self-serious high fantasy tone that sludges up gamehousering of dragonpowerthrones

Yeah it's been a total treat. Everything feels like it's being made up as it goes along, which is 100% vibes. It's like an ultimate fanfic, and the queer YA core of it all is indeed brilliant. Also love all the song choices and covers.

yes and heck yes, hi 5 bro! i was iffy at parts of the first couple episodes, like the first time someone said "dude" i needed to pause & recalibrate & decide if these flavors clashed or complemented, but it's won me over and i will now firmly stan this show until it gets bad or i get bored.
love the colors, the songs (even [especially?] the bratty pop punk), the dedication to shoehorning in jokes no matter how corny, the awkward teen romances, the way it's equally happy barreling straight into the cliché-est cliché or skewing off in any other random direction. it feels like everyone is having fun and i love that!
kind of didn't love the kill-your-gays-ing of the excellent woodswomen, like how dare you dangle these beautiful lives before us and then immediately snuff them out!? unnecessarily cruel imo but c'est la tv, and anyway there's still enough shaggy exuberance to keep me ensorcelled ☾ ⋆*･ﾟ:⋆*･ﾟ

Alas, that will be it, at least as a show:
Pity because I did like the crazy ending, song choice and all. (And a hint of a returning Ebersisk.)

Ha, not quite that but imagine if

More like, we're not canceled, we just released the cast to do other things, but we may get around to it in a year or 30.
