Apparently Ghost didn't recieve a proper goodbye from Jon due to CGI complications. A giant picked up Lyanna in the last episode. Make of that what you will?

 

David Nutter the director said he was under pressure to keep the episode shorter. When you consider the time wasted on the Grissandei storyline over the last 4 seasons that really is nonsense. They even had a scene where Bran gives Tyrion a bit of wheelchair lore in this episode...

I doubt it. He is dead.

Was killed when Rickon got captured as his head was used as proof is Rickons identity.

You mean Nymeria.

 

And she already bumped into her last season.

 

Yeah, meant Nymeria. She is leading a pack and recognised Arya last season so may well make an appearance.

I think it was quite disrespectful to the viewers. Everyone loves Ghost and the relationship Jon had with him. To only have him look in his direction was very underwhelming

The whole season feels rushed, half-ersed and as if the show makers don't care any more.

 

Just want to get to the end and find out who wins.

I can't believe Greyworm is still alive, he is the least threatening warrior in history, he looks like he would struggle to hold a sword never kind swing one 

 

In all of the show I think this is the worst bit of casting

The last two seasons have been pish - Eastenders with dragons. It’s night and day (or fire and ice) from the first four seasons. Not long to go now though so might as well stick with it.

So many people claim that this is the greatest show of all time. I agree it is a great show but in this order..

 

The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The wire, Mad Men, Spartacus, Sons of Anarchy and arguably...

 

Vikings, Dexter, Justified and Lost are all better shows.

Not a fan of Sons of Anarchy. If I remember right, I gave up in 3rd series. Vikings is better than GoT imo. Also think that Band of Brothers should be in any top 10 of boxsets.

You won't be disappointed.  While GoT has been excellent, it doesn't come close to Band of Brothers.

Band Of Brothers really is a fantastic watch, episode in the forest in the snow the highlight. Now I’m typing this, it’s got me wanting to go back and watch it again. Wasn’t even sure about watching it when it first starts, because Ross Geller was in it?

I thought the follow up, Pacific, was better than band of brothers. All about personal choice though.

I would have game of thrones as the best ever though.

Never seen Pacific, another to add to the growing list of boxsets I need to watch, just not enough hours in the day. 

 

Back on to GoT though, was disappointed with this weeks episode. Also a bit miffed with the one before to. How many seasons have we been watching this, with a huge build up to that battle...and it was all over in one episode☹️

It's sort of like your first ride, you build the excitement up up a bit too much, and then it's all over far too quick.

That episode is the most terrifying bit of TV I can think of. Gripping.

The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Wire (and yes, Band of Brothers) are in a completely different league to all the other ones mentioned.

If I could add a current show, then I'd suggest Billions. You can't take your eyes off of it.

 

On topic, I can't believe we only have three hours of Thrones left!

I agree. That's because Band of Brothers was real history with real people while GoT is fairy tales with invented characters.

The now-famous Rami Malek was outstanding in Pacific.

I've never watched GoT. So I decided I'd watch this last series with the Mrs, who's never missed it. I fell asleep after 5 minutes of both episodes I tried to watch.

 

Garbage!

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it but it was just a random mash of fight scenes and sex scenes thrown together with very little storyline.

That’s hardly surprising if you haven’t watched the 7 seasons prior to it you won’t have a clue who anyone is or what’s going on

I think what's been noticeable is that since the TV has caught up with and passed the books, things have happened much more quickly.  I have doubts that GRRM will ever finish writing ASoIaF, but if he does, I imagine they'll cpontain all the detail that's missing from the TV.

I actually think that winds of winter is ready for release, and the last book isn't far off, he's just waiting on the completion of the TV series.

First couple of seasons of Sons of Anarchy were good, then it jumped the shark and went shite.

Watched all of sons of Anarchy and agree that after season 3 it diminished in quality quite quickly. 

 

The Wire was incredible, brilliant, outstanding but I do know some people that struggled with the dialogue. 

 

Breaking Bad was equally brilliant 

 

Started Mad Men but couldn't get into it(I would have stuck with it but the wife couldn't) 

 

Lost is a bit like most (I exclude It and the stand) Stephen King books, it starts off amazing, interesting, magical, mystical, then completely loses its way because it doesn't know how to finish a story.

I want to get round TO sopranos and deadwood but starting Line of Duty and halfway through season 2 of Ozark. 

 

 

For what it's worth I think Game of Thrones has been tremendous and its quite normal for it to reach breakneck speed towards the end the time for talking is done. Anyone who has endured the last few years of the walking dead would agree that "all out war" should mean just that and not ten episodes of inane chattering

Agreed. Spoilers should only be ok after the episode has aired on TV.

I dunno. I'd say for GoT, anything from 11pm on the Monday is fair. This whole having to dodgy the internet during the day on a Monday, because of the Sunday/Monday showing, is a bit of a pain.
