G.O.T. Finale
Spoiler!
A bit anticlimactic but was always going to be that way, really. After Dany died it was a case of wrapping the story up.

I liked it. Not the best ending ever but not shit either, wrapped stuff up nicely, a couple of "for TV" endings which were maybe more positive than the books will go for. Was pleased Sam's suggestion was laughed down, not absurd vs the real world but also a little dig at the state of the US/UK right now. I expected an Arthurian round table at the end but the end result isn't far off anyway given the new king is pretty passive.

i really didn't expect bran to be put in charge, to the exent that he really is, rather than just acting as a token figurehead, with his 'top team' really running things. it seemed a bit strange that he'd even accept given, e.g., the way he flatly turned down lordship fo winterfell/kinship o't'north a few weeks ago.

No chance after night - the closet to kumbaya you'll get is if Dany fucks off back to Essos. My biggest issue with the current series is that they've stopped killing off the good guys/girls - other that Lady Mormont and at a push Vary's.

I thought last nights episode was great - but I will throw up next week if Tyrion gets it on with Sansa ...

Spoiler!
other than Dany getting a prick from Jon is was all pretty much kumbaya then :mrgreen:

The Chernobyl thing on Sky Atlantic is bloody good tv, some proper edge of seat moments.

Think it’s on a weekly release so you’ll possibly have to wait until the last episode, think there are 6. Well worth the wait on the evidence of the first two episodes. I’d stay off here the next month if I were you. :mrgreen:

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.

Spoiler!
With the four Starks (if you include John Snow) now effectively running different corners of the world (one of them discovering new lands) they’ve left it wide open to a new series in 5-10 years - not to mention a backstory!

Pleased I didn’t get up at 5AM to watch that like Ponte :)

Enjoyed the last five minutes, wrapped it up nicely whilst leaving it open for spin-offs whenever HBO need to boost their subscriber count. Great that Sansa told the south to do one, good that Jon headed back home north of the wall as was predicted, and cool that we could see a spin-off with Sansa exploring the West. Bran’s character has always bored the tits off me, especially while I was reading the books, but I suppose he served a purpose, revealing Jon’s true identity and being a honey pot for the night king. Not too bothered that he ended up King of the Rest, who give a toss who rules the south once the North is independent. Thought the clowning around the table at the end with Tyrion and crew was a bit daft, but it’s the south so ....

Hope to fuck we’re back in the EPL before Arya’s series hits the screens..

decent GoT article. precisely ranking them all is a bit daft but i think a number of sensible micro points are made here.

The originals had no laughter track [in the UK]. Are they showing that one? I prefer it.

Just binge-watched over a couple of days. Bit more from Gran and Grandad this time, which I liked. Good scenes with sad/dimwit son and horrible Pauline in last couple of episodes. Overall, v good indeed.
