Had to happen though. He's always been there, the big threat in the North but he's been a mysterious, barely seen mute while everyone else engaged in intricate plots. If he got past Winterfell his army would be bigger still and he could also raise every grave to kings landing making him unstoppable.

They said, I guess he could have lost all his walkers and 2/3 of his army. But it would still have robbed us of any resolutions from 7 series of conflict. The idea everything else was meaningless by the end was my biggest concern in the whole thing.

Now we can continue ask:
Is Bron just in it for money and kill Tyrion/Jaime?
Will the hound kill the mountain?
Will Tormund get anywhere with Brienne?
Etc.

Far more interesting than the only question being "can anyone stop the night king?" - it's not a medieval zombie series.

I have to say I do find Tormund sniffing around an ogre like Brienne and her lukewarm response one of the funnier micro plots.

The character “High Sparrow” also amused me a lot for some reason and I was disappointed when he was killed off!

Yeah the dark was problematic. If you’re being generous to the makers you’d say they were trying to portray the disorientating nature of a battle of this nature. But it may just be they were fudging it to save cash...

I have to say I was mesmerised from start to finish. Never had so much tension build up whilst watching TV before. Absolutely brilliant in my opinion
We had a meeting at work today and I was asked what steps I would take in the event of a fire. Apparently "fucking big ones" wasn't the right answer

Like Eric I don't like dragons with my tits, but this did make me laugh.

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Yep, it’s magnificent and possibly even more so this series, which is no mean feat. I keep avoiding any interviews with the three guys behind it so as to not ruin the magic of the characters they inhabit (my wife didn’t and is regretting it now). It does really subtle and broad brush with equal skill and there’s so much heart to it.

Line of Duty.
I always knew there was something not quite right about it.
Not the writing, which is good
Not the acting, which is wooden at times, but that's not the problem. ....
Couldn't put my finger on it, but there's just this amateurish feel about it. Compared to American shows it just feels a bit rubbish.
What could it be?



It's the editing. Unbelievably poor.
Watch any 5 minute section and concentrate on the editing.
There's a cut every couple of seconds, usually for no reason. It doesn't add to the tension or push the story forward. A pointless shift in the point of view. Sometimes they just cut away to another pov and back every 3-4 seconds when nothing is changing. Other times, with the interrogation of Hastings ( the key scene in the whole bloody show ffs) they totally destroy the tension by cutting away to a character who is purely secondary.
Why?
Just destroys the flow.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.
