The final episode of Big Little Lies has come and gone, and we have feelings. We discuss our joy at the final outcome of the custody battle, Jane’s recovery character arc, and Renata finally deciding to kick Gordon to the curb. None of this, however, negates our continued frustration with the editing and story choices made throughout the season. We…
 
Big Little Lies’ penultimate episode brought us inside the courtroom as Celeste takes the stand. Celeste’s time on the stand is brutal and riddled with legal missteps, but it’s necessary to show the abuse survivors suffer at the hands of the system. After his behavior this week we disembark the Corey train and hope that Jane will find continued hea…
 
The antepenultimate episode of Big Little Lies continues the unraveling of the families of Monterey as Celeste’s custody trial draws near. More of Bonnie’s backstory is revealed while Jane possibly rushes her relationship with Corey as a reaction to Ziggy getting involved with the twins’ violence. We grapple with our thoughts about Madeline’s story…
 
The slap heard round the world. Is there really anything else worth talking about? We’ve lost a lot of our goodwill toward Mary Louise this week, as she continues to harm Celeste with her vicious attempt to get custody of the twins. Bonnie is still under-utilized and the show seems determined to make questionable decisions regarding the depiction o…
 
It’s the end of the world for some of our characters and their relationships, and for our antipathy for Corey and also possibly for Mary Louise. Renata and Madeline have public breakdowns. Ed has decided to indulge his anger. Principal Nippal has had it with these Shakespearean mothers. Bonnie has a new outlook — or does she? Jane continues her hea…
 
Wow. So much happened in this episode. Secrets were revealed, bombs were dropped, and relationships have been irrevocably changed.

We also discuss the show’s various approaches to family and relati…

We wrap up our discussion of the Game of Thrones finale, “The Iron Throne,” by exploring the theme of “cripples, bastards, and broken things,” and asking whether the show succeeded in fulfilling the promises made.

We’re back with more thoughts on the Game of Thrones series finale and the series as a whole. We delve deep into character arcs and writing to explain why the finale ultimately remains disappointing. We’re also still grappling with many questions like: How much of Bran is Bran? Did the Three-Eyed Raven orchestrate everything from the beginning? Is …
 
Game of Thrones is over and it turns out it was Bran all along? We talk about the emotional impact of the first part of the episode; Dany and Jon’s not-so-great great love story leaves us a bit cold but we find Tyrion’s anguish very affecting.

Links mentioned in this episode: Find us online at www.rabbitholenetwork.com Join our Facebook group and get in on the conversation a…
 
We think it’s safe to say that “The Last of the Starks” did not go down super well with fans. Despite a fun, engaging first half, and an amazing performance by Emilia Clarke, the writer’s committed several sins that we just cannot abide. We discuss the gorgeous feast scene and Brienne and Jamie finally getting their moment before turning our attent…

Rachael and Amberlee get talky about Bryan Cogman’s elegiac love letter to the characters, “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.” It’s a sleepover at Winterfell, where almost all of our characters have gathered to prepare for the big confrontation with the Night King, but did he accept the invitation? Jaime knights Brienne, making her the first woman kn…

Episode two of Sharp Objects, “Dirt,” sees the people of Wind Gap reveal their true colors. We analyze the use of superstition and generational trauma.
