We have a bit more of an idea of the week’s offerings. House of the Dragon tries to get in on the competitions game with an episode about the Lord of the Tides. Interview with the Vampire teaches Louis (and us) the rules. The Handmaid’s Tale tells of dangerous missions and power moves. Andor remains shrouded in mystery, but we know Stargirl has Courtney and Cameron are spotted. Star Trek: Lower Decks, She-Hulk, and The Lord of the Rings also stay quiet. Pennyworth at least tells us he will be dealing with a precious metal tree. On See, we see a small infiltration of Sibeth’s camp. For the kids, Miraculous, My Hero Academia, and The Owl House also drop episodes.

Interview with the Vampire isn’t the only nosforatic* series in town. This weekend (Canadian Thanksgiving, eh?) saw the premiere of the Let The Right One In series. I haven’t seen it. I like the source material and the movies, but the early reviews of this revisiting have been tepid, suggesting it might be a little bloodless.
*Yeah. Torturing the language somewhat here.
“Nosforatic” sounds like a perfectly crumulent word to me!
