OK, fair.... I just couldn’t think of another long-running spectacle-type show to compare to.

The fact that Walking Dead is probably GoT’s biggest competition in terms of sheer cultural influence probably says plenty about how the show stacks up to other things on TV (i.e. it annihilates them).

We all agree it’s not at its best, but honestly it had NO RIGHT to continue to be even remotely good. The fact that it’s got some of the best and most cinematic sequences — and, indeed, entire episodes — on “TV” is really quite impressive, given the fact that everything after season 6 has been one big fat experiment in what the fuck to do when you’re adapting a series that the author can’t be arsed to complete.

One look at the Battle of the Bastards, or the last minutes of season 7 (zombie, dragon, wall, OMG) or literally any episode from this season proves that more thought and time is still being put into this thing than most other shows get at their best.

*shrug*

If it is shorty, it’s GRRM’s fault. But it’s not. It’s just got a lot of Dunkirk-type moments now. Action sequences are top fuckin’ notch.

some stuff that's been on the telly these weeks:


- Young Sheldon season 2
- Agents of Shield season 3, it's the best season so far.

- Eurovision Song Contest. Oh My God, why is everybody singing out of tune on top of their lungs!? They should provide free earplugs!! The Dutch song is the favourite this year, which is a first since the seventies. But even that song is boring as fuck
- NBA Playoffs!! Come on noone is watching this you US folks? Curry vs Curry. Who wins? Curry of course! Eastern finals will probably be more competitive than the Western, and Durant isn't even playing

I actually do keep up with what's happening and I'm sure there are some great looking bits but eh. Reading the spoilers for the last few, and next, episodes made me think I've still no intention to watch it for a good while yet.

As it stands there's too much watching Will and Grace.

Just watched the Scott Tucker episode on Dirty Money. What a cunt rag that guy was. His attorney as well. Live how he was giving the "poor me" act cos his stuff was getting seized when his whole fortune was based on fucking people over like that . Poetic justice.

im on my last weekend of hbo (just subscribed for the goto month) and just checked out the first episode of “the leftovers”

maybe it’s a good story but it feels very unpleasant hahaha. don’t feel like suffering right now so i’ll bank it for a future subscription.

im sticking to veep season 4, young pope, and the thrones final game.

Yeah, What We Do in the Shadows is GREAT.

I had to slow down because I always want more more more.

BARRY is also amazing, and I’d be going through some ATLANTA withdrawal without it (similar vibes, similar balance of hilarious and deadly serious, but, y'know, with white people in LA).

finished chapter 4 of the young pope and holy fuck i love this show

sure sure the cinematography—whatever, it’s a given

i absolutely do know what the fuck is gonna happen next

and no, not in the “ooh clever plot twist” cheezy way.

it’s just that it’s original writing and written with great intelligence. damn!

jude law is so great in it he doesn’t even look like jude law anymore. he looks like his character.

a+++++++



(also, rob hit the nail right in the head the other day with his categorization of “tropes tv” shows. i keep going back to that very good idea. this show has zero tropes, btw.)

I loved that.

I love the “theme” music they play for Law’s character (which is a track by Recondite, by the way).

Diane Keaton... yeah.

It’s great, and I’m SICK of waiting for the sequel series, which was supposed to be out by now.

Hahaha! Just avoid Secs post until AFTER you've watch whatever series.

Look forward to talking more when you finish it. I agree that it's something you have to pay attention to. No mobile phone browsing and the like.
