    Masie Williams is awesome...lol

    I really feel for the cast. I’m sure many of them feel as cheated as the rest of us, but they feel so conflicted because of all the work and sacrifice that so many made for it. My guess is they’re in semi-shock right now and will start to become more angry as time passes and they realize a couple of power drunk show runners took a dump on their legacies.

    Last season of GoT was like a shortcut to me.Gradual creating of the atmosphere,expressive characters and no rush in the plot were the main advantages of the TV show. All of these collapsed like a house of cards in the 8th season.Do not get me wrong,GoT as a whole TV show is great but I was expected something more at the end. The last episode seemed to be like "The chronicles of Narnia" ending. Too sweet,sloppy and just disappointing.
    BTW - personally "The Wire " is my king of TV. Breaking Bad and GoT just behind it.

    No Sopranos? Some would include MASH.

    I’m one of few who just never saw great things from The Wire, at least if we’re talking top 5-10. I thought it was good, of course, but I can’t help feeling that it’s a bit overrated.

    From start to finish I think the Wire is the goat. I wouldnt argue w BB. Peak GoTs (S1-4), few other epis are as good as TV/entertainment gets imo.

    I agree with The Wire as GOAT but think The Americans is breathing right down it's neck. They were both consistently excellent from pillar to post. They both also absolutely stuck their respective landings, which as we've seen recently matters a great deal.

    I lost interest in Americans about halfway thru. I just didn't love it. The first 2-3 years were really good, but I felt it got stale. I felt House of Cards was much better, obviously, the final season was trash. It ended, I turned to my wife and said "That's it??"

    While this particular article is nothing more than a Buzzfeed time-passer, it does at least seem to directly quote Martin. Maybe someone will stumble on some better sources, but this is the first time I’m hearing that none of the potential shows would include any of the characters that we’re familiar with, as he claims that all 5 of the pilot scripts (again, not even pilots yet) are all prequels.

    Anyone watch 'The Terror' on AMC? I just started it - seems interesting,
    it is based on the real disappearance of 2 Royal Navy ships in the Artic - 1845.
    HMS Erebus or HMS Terror.

    It starts out really well then kind of slows down quite a bit

    Yeah, I tried getting into it last summer, and kind of gave up after the first 4-5 episodes. Was that the only season or is there a season two? I honestly don’t know if the storyline provided the opportunity for more than one, but I’m guessing that it was a limited series type of thing.

    Let’s step away for a moment from this quality tv talk and get into the guilty pleasure reality trash. Anyone catch the Temptation Island reboot on USA (or Amazon Prime.). As far as real drama goes, this one outdoes anything that’s been on tv in years.

    I loved The Terror S01. I'm actually rewatching it. I didn't get any sense of the season getting worse as it went along but I also binged it all in a weekend.

    There will be a season 2 but it's an anthology series so S02 will be about something completely different.

    No, but my fiancée does. I’m not ashamed to admit that I like “Southern Charm.” I even go so far as to watch the reunion-type of episodes hosted by top gay (as he calls himself on Stern) Andy Cohen.

    You’re not the only one who gave up. I thought it was terrible. That’s one where I’ll go ahead and disagree with the people of RT and MetaCritic.

    I have largely avoided this thread, as I only saw about half of the very first GoT episode, but I'd throw out HBO's Chernobyl miniseries that started up a couple of weeks ago.

    Three episodes in and it has been very entertaining so far.

    I mentioned in the top 20 TV shows thread in the Pub that it might make my list after the next two weeks. It’s been outstanding.
