    So keen!
     
  2. Tried so hard to get into GoT. Just couldn’t.

    There are too many things wrong with it.

    Okay, you're going to have to list them, because I can't think of any.

  7. I like Fear The Walking Dead although the last season or two has been pretty trash, while this season of The Walking Dead has finally got to being a good TV show again.

    It's like they both can't be good seasons at once.

    Fear the Walking Dead sucked, then was good, then really good. Then the show runner who fucked The Walking Dead switched shows and turned it into a joke.

    Which is why TWD is suddenly good again @broncospwn@broncospwn.

  9. Yeah, just watch those everything wrong with GoT videos. That will show just how sloppy it is. The constant mistakes, especially in the timeline.

    But the biggest problem being the choice of cast. I'm guessing they just hired the first person that rocked up? Some of it they got right, most of it they didn't.

    Who decided to give Sophie Turner a role? That boring bitch..

    This is from HBO, who delivered us Band of Brothers, now come up with this sloppy drivel that wouldn't have lasted that long if it didn't have tits and a lot of violence.

    I'll give you Sophie Turner, but that's the trouble with child actors.

    I'm going to have to watch these videos. Later seasons have used a fair bit of 'fast travel', but I can't recall any sloppy timelines.
     
  11. You're comparing a show based on an incomplete series of fantasy novels to a mini series based on actual events?

    What did they get wrong with the choice of cast? I'm assuming you've read the books to form that kind of opinion?
     
  12. Without doubt the silliest thing I've ever seen you post.

    For starters, watching a YouTube video designed to point out a shows flaws doesn't mean you suddenly have an informed and valid opinion on it, it'd be a different story if you'd actually watched the show from start to finish and had this opinion, but that's just crap mate.

    Secondly, as someone who's read the books I think the casting is one of the main reasons the show has worked so well, even down to the characters who only appear in very limited episodes like Balon Greyjoy & Oberyn Martell, they were exactly as I envisioned them being when I was reading the books a year or two before the show started. I think most people who've read the books would agree that the casting has been absolute top tier for the most part. The Hound, Tywin Lannister, Stannis Baratheon, Mance Rayder, etc, all absolutely incredible casting choices.

    You would be assuming wrong.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned but just finished watching handmaid's tale.. Wow, bloody good show! Thought it was a feminine/girl power type show so was hesitant to watch it but wow it is good. Its not a show that makes you smile that's for sure but it's scary how despite it being so far from current reality, you could actually see something similar happening (crazy government/religious takeover/oppression through public fear, manipulation and control). Its political commentary is eerily close to a lot of modern day topics despite it being a far fetched dystopia.

    To give people an idea of what shows I normally watch before shutting down or taking on my opinion this is my top 10 dramas TV shows of all time...

    1. Breaking bad
    2. Game of thrones
    3. Westworld
    4. The wire
    5. Peaky blinders
    6. The last kingdom
    7. Vikings
    8. Taboo
    9. Better call saul
    10. Black sails

    The handmaid's tale has probably snuck into number 3 there. Its damn good...

    Will put it on the list, have heard some great things about it. There's so much stuff to watch these days it almost makes the off season bearable, almost...
     
  17. One of my favourite shows of all time. You know which character I didn't really like on the first watch but has actually become one of my most liked on re-watches? Dutch boy. He's awesome.

    Really enjoyed DC Titans on Netflix. Don’t wanna say too much and spoil it.
