I was hoping for more of a dark plot twist, but I guess it wasn't meant to be. The battle itself had me practically cacking myself throughout, so that's something positive at least.

I was sooooo disappointed. Clearly the writers aren't on the same page as GRRM  :(

Holy shit DLPB, we actually agree on something!  Although I'll admit, I'm not unhappy about this, the show fell the fuck apart once they ran out of source material; so I just turn my brain off and enjoy the spectacle; so from that perspective, I've been pretty satisfied, although this season has been spectacularly dumb.

On the bright side though; CLEGANEBOWL IS COMING 100% CONFIRMED GET HYPE

It's not really a shock that it came to all this though, is it?  The writing has been getting worse season on season since they left the books behind.  And even before that, as I mentioned previously, Dumb & Dumber were making foolish mistakes and deviating from the actual plot for no logical reason. Even when GOT was a 10/10 show, there were clear signs that they would be useless once GRRM's material ran out.

Yeah, I'm one of those that think it took a sharp dive pretty much as soon as they ran out of books.  On the bright side, CLEGANEBOWL 100% CONFIRMED GET HYPE.  Cleganebowl is basically the only thing I actually WANT out of the show still; not even because it'd be awesome writing; just the sheer shitlordery of it is very amusing to me.




EDIT: also, if you thought last week was bad; just wait until you watch this week's.  Lots of stupid.  There was some stupid last week that wound up not being AS stupid in context (IE I thought the dead starks rising in the crypts was going to be dumb; but the way they wound up doing it, in the second siege wasn't too stupid.  It was how that second siege was used that was stupid AF), but this week is just gonna be stupid after stupid after stupid

Honestly, though... no show has disappointed me with an ending as much as GoT.
You should watch Dexter next

1. Battlestar Galactica (new series)
Yeah, talk about jumping the shark.  New Caprica, say what???  (but I still think the "Adama maneuver" was pretty sick)

Umm... how about any decent sci-fi series Fox picked up, like Firefly or Terminator:Sarah Connor Chronicles?

Firefly had a great last episode and a very good season - and was cancelled.  The show itself didn't disappoint me at all.
It was cancelled despite doing well in the important categories.  'Nuff said.

Quote
I never watched Sarah Connor nonsense...  spin offs like that are always going to be poor as hell.
If you've got DVD Netflix, give it a shot (don't know if it's on streaming or not).  It was reasonably well-written (especially when compared to the likes of Galactica and DS9, both of which Ron Moore was involved with), and was getting into how the players in the future (being SkyNet and the Resistance) were sending back more than just "Kill ___" and "Protect ___" missions, but almost playing a game of chess against not only each other, but even itself (especially SkyNet).  Oh... and Summer Glau is easy on the eyes, and she was also in both series (do I see a pattern?)

Oh, and there aren't any misplaced Starbucks coffee cups in SCC like there are in GOT:  https://comicbook.com/tv-shows/2019/05/06/game-of-throne-season-8-episode-4-coffee-cup-mistake-daenerys/

Oh, good heavens. Four excellent seasons, one meh season, two crap seasons, and then season 8 was the single worst season of a television program I have ever seen, capped with the single worst episode of television I've seen, a finale so stupid that it makes the rest of the season look brilliant by comparison.

I'm not going to invest time for nothing.
Watch Babylon 5 instead.  Netflix reviewer said it best... "Season 1 showed the lack of budget they had, but so much that happens later in the series depends on things inconspicuously laid out previously."

Funnily enough, I'm actually re-watching BSG right now.  Say what you will about it (and MY GOD is there a lot to say.  It's not exactly a good show, but I still love it); but the ending does make sense in context of the rest of the series.  They generally hint at something of the sort throughout the whole show.  They just implemented it....poorly, for lack of a better word; blame the Mormons.

Season 1 is also a very decent season that for some reason gets criticism.
Mostly because it does spend so much time setting up back story and future events, that it doesn't seem to actually "go" anywhere.

Quote
Parts of Season 5 were on the poorer side, but again it was a very good season with an excellent final episode.
Much of what happens in the latter half of season 4 was pulled forward from season 5 because the team didn't know whether not they'd get renewed.  When TNT did pick up the fifth season, they suddenly needed filler material.  The series finale was actually shot during season 4 (production number 422) because of that.  After being renewed for the fifth, what we saw as the season 4 finale (production number 423), was filler (even here JMS managed to incorporate the foreshadowing of humanity's future becoming non-corporeal, which we saw again in "The Very Long Night of Londo Mollari" as Sheridan was changing "uniforms" in the Zocalo).

Yeah, the consensus everywhere is "Don't watch Dexter", so I definitely won't haha!

Is it worth watching season 1 or does it end on a cliffhanger?  I'm not going to invest time for nothing.
Honestly, the first four seasons of Dexter are absolutely worth watching. The show is pretty good about isolating plot arcs to seasons, especially early on, so you can easily watch the first three without cliffhangers. Season 4 is the best season the show ever got, and it ends on a... sort of cliffhanger? Like, it definitely leaves some questions unanswered, but it still makes for a good stopping point. I would definitely recommend watching Dexter and continuing through the end of season 4.

Pretty much agree with what everyone else has been saying, the writing took a nose dive since they ran out of books to follow. D.B Weiss and David Benioff are completely incompetent and the only reason they are the shot callers is because of their hollywood connections, completely incompetent. Even in the seasons which were fantastic and mostly followed the books they added needless modern day political commentary and extra sex and altered scenes, so it came as no surprise to me that as they gained increased freedom with the script the show would suffer even more. That being said it's still interesting and I'll finish watching it just to see how they wrap things up or if they can wrap things up completely. I'm dissapointed with Martin's nihilist version of Tolkien's universe in some respects, it's evident in the fact that the giants, the children of the forest, the dragons, everything magical is dying from westeros. So nothing this season has really surprised me, we'll see though!

It took until the end of season 5 for me to realize they actually started to run out of material. I didn't know the source material wasn't finished. But when I was told it made perfect sense. Jamie's trip to Dorne felt like filler written by fanboys.

Season 7 ep 6 is still the worst one imo. That episode made anti-sense.

Yup, pretty much how I feel about it. Dexter is far from my fav show, but to anyone planning on watching Dexter: For the love of God, stop after season 4, cliffhangers be damned. Season 3 was kinda lame too, but somewhat worth watching 'cause of season 4. In the case of GoT you can't say that. Knowing how it all goes downhill afterwards, especially after season 6, I can't see myself watching GoT ever again. It's too disappointing. Perhaps The biggest disappointment in fiction history. Up there with Mass Effect 3. And the Star Wars prequels.

I really enjoyed episode 5

Game of Thrones will never touch that.  And even BB doesn't.
This has to be trolling

Only seen season 1 of B5, and keep hearing good stuff about it. I know the cg is outdated but still wanna check it out.

Ep 5 was terrible. Sure it looked good; the best description I've heard so far is "disaster porn".

Not gonna spoil anything, but to anyone who is up to date: Think about Jaime's character arc in the latest 2 seasons (or any other character really). It's so #ยค@% dumb. You can pretty much sum it up in 1 sentence.

Can't wait for this to end. Season 7 was bad. Season 8 has been a disaster.

CG was never the driving force behind B5.  They did set some records at the time for stuff like number of objects concurrently on-screen, but that was never their goal.  If/as you watch, keep in mind that the most seemingly innocuous of events/statements can have empire-changing ramifications two, three, or even four seasons later.  Example:
Spoiler: show
Londo speaking to Vir:  You moon-faced assassin of joy.


BB =?
