This fortnight, Nick and Alastair effortlessly interweave the real and the fantastic with House of the Dragon and Thirteen Lives.
But first, some updates from the TV coalface, as Alastair watches the final season of Locke & Key, while Nick takes in the likely-final season of Westworld.
And then it’s back to the brutal world of Game of Thrones, but this time only the actual gaming for the throne without any other guff, in new spin-off House of the Dragon (12:23). But only the first three episodes, as that’s what’d aired when they recorded.
Lastly, Nick and Alastair are going deeper underground with Thirteen Lives (26:39), a movie about a bunch of kids trapped down a mine in Thailand. If that sounds familiar, it’ll be because it really happened.
