TV Euron never happened, I dropped the whole show when I saw him and the lack of Victarion (probably my favourite POV character in the books) also sucks.

Yeah fair enough but he killed off the sand snakes which is always good

He's almost as annoying as Dany. And Varys and Tyrion have become infinitely less interesting since Season 4, and the mighty Olenna is (spoiler) dead.

Yeah, everything feels so incredibly rushed now. I think they've done quite a few things right this season, but they clearly have no idea what to do with a significant number of people who aren't really involved in the northern endgame.

And the travel bothers me. It's like they have teleporters now.

Littlefinger would have been written out of the show by now unless he was about to drop a bombshell of sorts which I think is going to happen. He's not the type of character to keep around just for cryptic conversations. He will either be killed off soon or do something that no one will expect.

Yep, they kept him around for seven episodes and then killed him off. It was a mercy killing by the end

Yeah he was pretty good in his final scene. But he was one of the characters expected to go so no surprise. Nice scene between Cersei and Tyrion.

I'm not a great fan of TV-series to tell the truth... I liked only "Charmed" a long time ago but only first three seasons :D
And now I adore only "Game Of Thrones", that's an amazing thing for me! :o

I’ve finally taken the time to get into Stranger Things. Just binge watched season one this weekend - wow! Best thing I’ve seen in a long while, hopefully season two is as strong.

I've been watching Endeavour, which for the most part is quite good. Morse is my all-time favourite detective. There's also a fair few references to the books (the originals), which are always fun to pick up.

Ok sure why not. Favorite TV series/shows:
Classic Star Trek (grew up on the reruns), classic Doctor Who (Peter Davison is my Doctor)
for more recent/current TV shows: The Gifted and Marvel's Agent's of SHIELD. A couple others I'm enjoying are Stone House Revival and Restored (DIY station shows where they are restoring old homes).

Only Fools and Horses, a classic British comedy series. Highly recommended!

The Wire, Breaking Bad (although I prefer Better Call Saul), Twin Peaks (my personal number 1, but it's not everyone's taste. It's great to see together with someone else).

Other than the Big Three^^, I liked Justified very much for what it is. I think you'd like it as well. I prefer Elementary over Sherlock, even if the former has lessened in the last few seasons. The first season of True Detective was excellent, I stopped watching the second after a few episodes as it wasn't all that good.

Been running through Rick & Morty, lately. I love the humor in it, everything from the small subtle hints to previous episodic characters and the (more than) occasional references to/bashings of popular culture.

Also, Flight of The Conchords is high on my list at the moment

Don't know if you like Superhero shows/movies or not. If you do I'd definitely say Daredevil is worth watching. Both seasons 1 and 2.
You might enjoy the British series Sherlock. It's a modern take and Sherlock Holmes.

Since both you and Netserk have mentioned Elementary and I've thought about watching it. Sounds like I actually should. (Or we. We would include my husband.)
