Are you sure you weren`t watching the CCTV from a Saturday night in Horfield?

Positive.

Ain't no cliffs in Horfield.

A little off topic but as GofT is based on the novels by George R R Martin fans of Fantasy novels may be happy to hear that Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time is greenlit for production as are The Dresden Files by ~Jim Butcher plus my favourite The Black Company by Glen Cook.

I am looking forward to all of these.

Better half is going to lose it when I tell her Wheel of Time is greenlit.

Yeah Hubby said the same. The first season is poor compared to the rest. But I'm just one of those people, I wasn't hooked so I can't persevere.

I thought Blackadder 1, was shite but Percyvered and loved the next three series they were fab and the last ever episode made me cry not bad for a comedy show.

You might warn her of the other two as well. Books wise the Dresden files and Black Company are brilliant.

Hubby and me had a bet, he'd watch an hour of something I selected and vice versa. He's a big Game of Thrones fan so that's what he picked for me. So I watched series 1 episode 1 of GOT. Load of naked women, some cute wolf pups, blokes in fake furs, a brother giving his sister a seeing too and pushing a kid off a cliff.

Turned it off after that. No thanks.

It's set in Whorefield?

Star Wars? No

Bond film? No

Game of Thrones? No (been to Dubrovnik twice though and apparently walked through many of the locations episodes were filmed at). 

Friends? No -shudder at just hearing that inane tune let alone the canned ‘laughter’. 

Big Bother? No 

I’m a ‘celebrity’ get me out of here? No 

 

Inside many pubs interacting with real people? YES!

Hospital for liver transplant. Yes .

We're all different.  Whilst I liked the whole lot I thought the first series was the best.

GoT, decent as it is, ain't no Peaky Blinders is it? Now, that is brilliant, absolutely sensational television. :comando:

It’s great, only problem is there isn’t enough of it 😉

Luckily, I've got the whole lot via IPTV. As I have to waste a few days leave, I've watched all of series 1, 2 and 3 again in the last few days. Just starting series 4 again now.

By all accounts, series 5 is being made at the moment. :)

My daughter is a huge fan of GoT and reads any material related to the show - yes, the next series 8 I think is in production right now.

It's a shame it had such a large gap in between the seasons. I used to look forward to them so much, I will watch them but no where near as invested/excited as I was.

Wait until you see the first half hour of the first episode of series 8.

I know what you mean, it seems a long time since the last season.

But I’m sure a few minutes into the new season I’ll be back on board the hype train.

Not for us, we got into it late, and have only just finished season 7 last weekend.

All fresh in the mind :rolleyes:

As Sky/NowTV are showing this at the same time as America, I’m hoping that it’ll be available on demand tomorrow morning so I can watch it before my son wakes up.

It was available when I woke up (6am) and my toddler wasn’t selfish/stupid enough to wake up while I was watching it.

A solid episode I thought, nothing too spectacular yet but dangled the promise of fireworks to come.

Some nice reunions but mainly window dressing as you would expect. It's going to kick off from Ep3 onwards.

I’ve just binged out on the whole of season 1 and it changes everything when you can make the connections with the characters and their families, allegiances etc . 

I was creating my own story first time round and missed quite a lot of the subtlety of the plots .

Imo it peaked at Season 4. Up until then it is driven by the characters and the actual books.

Since they got beyond the books it has become a bit more of an action-fest. More focus on dragons and the army of the dead.

While I still love watching it that is mainly because of being invested in the characters developed in those earlier series for me.

It has seriously good re-watch value when you know characters motives before they're clear

I agree but it's still darn good
