Each week, DT’s newest show Between the Streams is your guide to all of the hottest, most important, and (of course) dumbest new developments in streaming and entertainment to recap the week that was. (You can listen to the podcast below, or add us via RSS or Stitcher to take BtS on the road!)

Topics for our first show ever include a full dissection of the Captain America: Civil War trailer, Kit Harington’s maddening maybe-death in Game of Thrones season six, and so much more. The podcast above has the real goods, but we’ll also break down the talking points below.

As Batman v Superman readies for theaters next week, Marvel’s latest superhero mashup, Captain America: Civil War, is heating up online thanks to the latest trailer. We got everything in this snapshot of the film, including Ant Man being catapulted at Iron Man from Hawkeye’s arrow, Black Panther making his (apparently) bulletproof debut, Spider-Man’s latest reincarnation, and more. But the big question we tackle from the trailer is: Why the hell is Iron Man on the government’s side?

Kit Harrington again promised he’s not on Game of Thrones season six last week, while also promising he is in the new season — as a corpse. The latest trailer for the series (which comes back April 24) seems to back up his claim, showing his character Jon Snow’s bloody corpse on the ground with an ominous voice all but promising he’s gone for good. Still, fans are holding out hope for what seems to be the show’s best-loved hero in the making — and new footage released at SXSW seems to back up their long-held beliefs. For our part, we think he’s coming back.

J.K. Rowling showed us her Harry Potter properties are nowhere close to being through with the silver screen, as we ramp up to the latest film taken from the pages of her notes for the Potter books, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Now Rowling has invited fans to learn more about North American wizard schools, which could (in theory) open up worlds of possibilities for the franchise to go on for generations to come.

We also talked a bit about why Netflix seems to be pulling CBS-style network TV series into its original content horde. The network has already renewed the bizarre nostalgia series Fuller House for a second season, and it’s now prepping to air a new multi-camera sitcom from Ashton Kutcher called The Ranch in April — with a laugh track. As Netflix continues to widen its net, strange things are afoot at the big red streamer.

And that’s just some of the topics we covered this week, so check out the show and come on back to Between the Streams next week for more insight on the wild world of streaming and entertainment.

Here’s why Dune: Part One is still better than Dune: Part Two
Two men stand next to each other in Dune.

After several years of hype and anticipation, Dune is back. Denis Villeneuve's mammoth adaptation of the Frank Herbert novel of the same name has gotten the sequel treatment, and Dune: Part 2 is receiving many of the same plaudits and praise that Part 1 received when it was released in 2021. It grossed over $80 million in its opening weekend, and is on the path to outdo its predecessor.

Now that we have two parts to compare, though, the natural question is which is better. While Part 2 is certainly more action forward, and a lot of the setup from Part 1 is paid off in the sequel, here are some reasons why Part 1 may still be the better movie.
