Season 8 has really stunk it up. So many plot devices built up over several episodes have turned out to be pointless and strong likable characters have become weak and detestable. Reminds me of The Last Jedi. Hopefully the last two books can do a much better job if they ever come out.

Yeah it has been a bit of a bummer. Even last weeks episode essentially had no bearing at all on this weeks in terms of the strength of the armies and fight and the previous losses incurred (dragon included).


It must be hard to end long running series. Trying to think of some that did it well. Personally i have never got over the deterioration and finish of Dexter.

What happened? Only made it to S5 or so. (You could answer in code/PM if you want to avoid spoilers)
Quality deteriorates badly from where you are but you need to finish it right through and make up your own mind. Like a lot of series, characters make decisions that don't make sense either in general or in line with their personality/character; and plot holes abound.

Lucifer is back on Netflix after being canned on the previous channel. Quick 10 episode season. I think canning it may have been the right move. Seems to have lost its way a bit.

yeah, it's very good... not as manic as the film, or the book, but good nevertheless.

The book is great!! Give it a try.

This series got better and better, just finished it tonight. Beautifully shot as well. The lead actor who played Yossarian was fantastic. Really loved Kyle Chandler as Col. Cathcart too.

Just heard on the radio that in the US tonight there’s 2 live to air remakes of The Jeffersons and All in the family. Never watched the Jeffersons but with Woody Harrelson as Archie Bunker that’s something I’d like to see.

Wonder if they PC Bunker or keep him the way he was.
