Thread: What TV shows are you watching?

Ooh thank you chaps, those are by far the best two maps I've seen! I'm so scared of searching for GoT related stuff, that I couldn't bring myself to do it. Looks like there's a lot of work left to do.

The mutiny of the Night's Watch was well handled IMO. Nice beat after Craster's threat before the choas ensue.
This episode reeked of things to come in the near future, amirite?

So Amazon is running a free (US-only?) Pilot for Alpha House (and a bunch of other shows.) This particular one caught my attention, though: Written by Garry Trudeau of Doonesbury fame, starring John Goodman, Gus Haynes from The Wire and with a cameo by Bill Murray. The director, Adam Bernstein, also directed some of Breaking Bad's best episodes, including "ABQ" and "Box Cutter." I haven't watched it yet, so I'll have to get back to you on whether all that pedigree stacks up. The other shows look like unmitigated garbage; I guess that big survey button on the right side is going to be used to decide which one Amazon ultimately decides to greenlight.
New GoT was good. Not sure what all the bitching was about to begin with, although the entire Unsullied plot probably could have been wrapped up in one episode without all the overt telegraphing.

So earlier in the week I decided to give Game of Thrones a go. After watching the first episode I wasn't sure if the focus on people would be for me.
I did give the second episode a go though where it's much clearer that the focus isn't on the people but the politics. Since then I've burned through all of season 1, 2, and am now up to date on season 3 >.>
A few things bug me about the show though: firstly how naive/dumb/trusting all of the Stark's seem to be, despite everyone they know being treacherous/untrustworthy.
And secondly, that the show still hasn't answered some of the questions it posed in the first season, namely the magical dire wolfs that are apparently ferocious, and loyal despite clearly having not been trained.
Otherwise it's been good, aside from the very out of place music when they [SPOILER] cut off prince Charming's hand. [/end]
I've also been watching Happy Endings, which is now my favorite sitcom on TV. It's like How I met your Mother or Friends, but far more self-aware, the main cast aren't all straight white people, and it's still actually funny. It's also got some very punchy one-liners.

It illustrates my boredom that I've actually been keeping up with this awful season of Community, but the latest episode (written by Dean Pelton, who's an Oscar-winning screenwriter) was finally worth watching. I don't know how they screwed up a puppet episode, but there you have it.

I would say season 3 definitly more works as an ending to the show because it is very melancholy nearer the end and the characters grow a lot. Then they revert that in season 4 and im out.

The latest Doctor Who episode cinematically reminded me a lot of Farscape it had the same wooshing camera through corridors and not really staying still that Fascape likes to do a lot. Also the main salvage characters are probably the most morally bankrupt characters its ever done pretty ghoulish.

Starting to really enjoy Game of Thrones with the last two episodes, especially the relationship between Jaime and Brienne and how everything seems to be falling apart around Tyrion and Cersei.
I read the two first books a couple of years ago but felt it was a bit like reading a soap opera (and then they went and made a soap opera, hmhm) and I didn't continue so S3 is all new. Those who've read the rest; think it would be worth picking them up again or better to wait until the TV series catches up?

I actually think the people are doing quite a great job of adapting the book that I don't think your required to read the books now, a few adaptation changes here and there. But I would recommend them since they are really good.

Read the books over the show if you don't mind reading past the TV show. I enjoy the show but the books do have the better story, at least so far. Clash of Kings the book is better than the show, not through any reason other than it's able to go into much more detail. And there's a few story differences that reading it doesn't mean the TV show is completely spoilt.

I'm quite bad at sticking with TV shows for more than one or two seasons, and I'm getting to that point with Game of Thrones where I wonder where this is all going. So many characters now seem to live off in their own bubbles, hardly interacting with any of the other supposed leading characters and most of them, to me at least, aren't interesting enough to really care about on an individual level. The last few episodes have left me with a distinctive 'meh'-feeling. Time to look for some other interesting series, I suppose!"He has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free". ~ Luke 4:18

Do you guys watch Vikings? It's from History Channel and I really like it. The plot is good, it keeps you wondering what is gonna happen next. It has some really cool battle scenes and the action, in my opinion, it's not excessive (It's one of the things that I don't like in the Tv shows, but probably it's just me lol) and it's historically accurate.
So, if you like vikings and his mythology, or if you just need a good show to watch, give it a chance!!
PS: Sorry for the bad english, i'm trying to improve it :)
