Great: The Game of Thrones Prequel Will Explore Internalized Misogyny and the Patriarchy

You had me at "prequel." And the internalized misogyny and patriarchy is just icing on the delicious woke cake.

I'm not watching it anyway; Game of Thrones got me over any lingering appetite for Game of Thrones.

I just love watching Hollywood set millions of dollars on fire.

Now that's entertainment!

HBO's upcoming series House of the Dragon -- the highly anticipated prequel series to Game of Thrones -- will bring woke gender politics to novelist George R. R. Martin's universe by exploring "internalized misogyny," the "patriarchy," and other feminist tropes.


"House of the Dragon really creates a nuanced conversation of misogyny," actress Milly Alcock told Indiewire.

"We don't only explore it through a level of women being shut down and the patriarchy, but also go in-depth about the internalized misogyny that women are constantly faced with, and the competitiveness. Alicent and Rhaenyra's relationship is at the forefront of that conversation."

Is it Christmas already? How did they know exactly what I wanted?!

I can't wait to hear about "Alicent's" and "Rhaenyra's" "conversation" about internalized misogyny.

But what I'm really about is the deconstruction of the sexual violence inherent in a patriarchal system:

In an interview with Vanity Fair, House of the Dragon executive producer Sara Hess said sexual violence will never be shown on-screen, though it does occur off-screen,

"I think what our show does, and what I'm proud of, is that we choose to focus on the violence against women that is inherent in a patriarchal system," she told the magazine.

That's exactly what I was hoping for: I wanted my Dragon Soap Opera to instruct me about Normative Gender Power Structures and Gendered Violence.

It's like HBO just gets me.

Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos' Woke Amazon production released this awesome soap-opera style character introduction for the Diverse cast of their Stunning and Brave "Rings of Power" fan-fic.

Note this clip pushes the soap-opera look of the trailer, but they really released a clip with this kind of "As the Middle Earth Turns..." character introductions.

In addition to getting Woke Warrior Girlboss Galadriel, we'll be getting what you all know you always wanted but didn't quite have the courage to ask for:

That's right, Hot Sauron.

I mean...

I don't know if Hollywood has realized this, but they've created a derivative system of entertainment by which people actually enjoy their products, but not in the way they intended.

We enjoy them by hearing about them and laughing at them.

I have to admit, and this is a guilty admission: I know what happened in most of the Disney Marvel shows and movies, and the Disney Star Wars shows, and I haven't seen most of them.

I just listen to people goofing on them while I'm walking or cleaning.

I'm doing less and less of that because I'm less and less interested in even their enormous sweaty embarrassing failures.

But yeah, I know the basics of Obi-Wan. Didn't watch it, but enjoyed it!

I don't even know if I have the appetite to listen to take-downs of Girlboss Game of Thrones or Lord of the DEI Rings. They seem so pathetic already. They're pre-taken-down.

Meanwhile, Chris Pratt is trolling the woke critics who attacked his show for being so old-fashioned as to just deliver entertainment to, get this, men as well as women who don't mind watching male-skewing stuff.

To get the trolling, you should know that ratings on streaming services are measured in streaming-minutes, how many minutes the public has actually watched a show, collectively.

In the millions is good; in the billions, very good.

In one post, he posted an article with the headline, "Chris Pratt's new Navy thriller 'The Terminal List' defies woke critics' scathing reviews to shoot up ratings chart with 1.6 BILLION minutes of streams."

In another post, the "Everwood" star plastered a photo of Dr. Evil from the "Austin Powers" franchise and noted the number of times viewers watched his show.

"One point six BILLLLLLLLLION minutes," he scribed on the meme.


The Daily Beast called "The Terminal List" an "unhinged right-wing revenge fantasy" and "a wet dream for militia-minded anti-establishment kooks" in a scathing review.

Absolutely spot-on review. That's why I watched it.

Can't believe AllahPundit's second-favorite website nailed that review so hard.

And Top Gun: Maverick just edged out Titanic to become the seventh highest domestic grossing movie of all time. Yeah yeah, note, this is in non-inflation adjusted dollars, so recent movies always have an advantage over earlier ones.

Still, it now could possibly beat Avengers: Infinity War.

This is the domestic box office, not worldwide. It doesn't do as well in worldwide box office, because its US box office is so huge. It's one of the few big movies to have a US box office equal to the the rest of its global take. (Black Panther had an even more lopsided US take.)

Despite non-woke entertainment earning money and selling billions of "stream-minutes," Hollywood will not make more similar projects, because: You shouldn't like non-woke "entertainment." You should like the Indoctrination Hollywood feeds you. And if Hollywood can just feed you nothing but that, at some point, you'll be forced to like it.
