    I watched the first three episodes of GOT, didn't do anything for me, watched 15mins of fleabag and turned it off.
    Not my cup of tea, as someone says in the movie thread, don't always go with recommendations.

    Good for you! It would be boring if we all liked the same thing!

    I liked the Terry Gilliam movie but never watched the TV show, see that the first 3 seasons are currently on Amazon Prime so have added them to my watchlist...

    They’re also finally doing a Deadwood feature film, hopefully it does well and HBO will then commission a movie to wrap up Rome too.

    GoT was good wasn’t it!

    Loved the bit when the dragons fried those fudging scene-stealing, gatecrashing, muppet babies....

    Thrones is good as long as they keep Dany off screen. Terrible actress, who turns all her costars terrible as well.

    Not the first person Ive heard say that. Maybe Ive just caught him in miscast roles or something because whenever Ive seen him he is wooden as hell and just sucks the life out of any scene.

    With Altered Carbon though that played to his strengths!


    I like Quinto in the movies as Spock as well, and I have to say Im really enjoying the guy in Discovery playing him.

    And I have to say I was very skeptical about them having Spock in Discovery, but it works for me.



    About 4 episodes into S2 of The Expanse, it is growing on me...



    First 3 of Season 1?

    If thats the case Id strongly suggest at least finishing the season. Its not an episodic narrative, each season is one long story - and particularly at first there is a huge amount of getting to know the (numerous!) players etc.

    I think half way through the first season I was still trying to work out who was who and wanted what etc...

    And then by the end it comes together and is really quite brilliant.

    Ive only seen S1 and 2, so have a pretty major binge ahead of me...

    Having watched all 68 episodes in the last month I envy you, because you have some amazing television to come.

    Sansa - worst actress in anything mainstream I've ever seen.

    And a great big bag of munt to go with it.

    I agree she’s not great, she’s improved a bit for me. Danerys is worst for me by a mile. She kills any character she is on screen with. Tyrian is so brick now and has been for seasons. He used to be wonderful.

    I think the makers got unlucky with Sansa. She's supposed to be this incredible beauty and she just grew up ugly - nothing you can do when you have to cast so young.

    I think Tyrian just steals the show so often that he stands out against a very mediocre cast in terms of acting prowess.

    I watch recaps on youtube and Tyrian used to be this ambiguous often shady character, always drunk and whoring. Now he’s just this simpering sheep. I think he’s a good actor generally though the show’s level of acting isn’t great. Lena Headley, Alfie Allen, the actors who play the Hound, Varys, the shady alchemist, Davos and Stannis. They’re all decent. I saw Gwendolyn Christie in something else and she was terrible.

    I would.

    When it comes to red heads you’re just very racist.

    Some redheads are ok if you triple bag it - she's not though, she's just unattractive by any measure.
