    Sounds like a good soap opera.

    I think the dragons would make short work of it, but that's probably not how it will play out.

    But Euron's dragon horn could make an appearance next season.

    You think they would have mentioned that in the show at some point.

    It could just be held off as an element of surprise for the TV version. Or it may not appear at all.

    I think they often leave parts of the TV show out for a while, so that those who read the books think it's not going to happen, then they end up using it.

    It's sad the tv version of Euron is so lame, the chapter leaked a few days ago shows what a monster he really is in the books, couldn't they at least have given him his crow's eye?

    Has anyone watched Silicon Valley? I think it's the best comedy right now, but I'm probably biased because of the theme.

    I watched season 1 and enjoyed it, will watch the rest soon.

    Also watched season 1 of True Detective and though it was good it was also disappointing, I expected more. Started season 2 and it seems to have nothing to do with the first even thematically.

    I really loved True Detective, it's probably my favorite show ever, very close competing with Breaking Bad. I really never was in in the mood for season 2 after such bad criticism. The last two seasons of Silicon Valley are better than the first, mainly because of the Richard-Bachman relationship, Jobs-Wozniak-esque. Bachman's Mona Lisa speech was pure joy.

    I thought the relationship between Woody and Matthew was contrived at first, which taints their dynamic throughout the show. Also the ending was very unsatisfying. I really didn't get a proper feel for the villain. In fact, there were too many 'bad guys' who didn't get enough character development.

    The show was enjoyable but I feel like it was the exact opposite of Breaking Bad, which took its time to build up the stakes and develop the characters.

    True Detective season one is untouchable.

    Finished all of Penny Dreadful and Vikings. PD end was awful but enjoyed the rest. Vikings is epic.

    I enjoy but haven't been fully hooked on either. I finished Breaking Bad, and certainly enjoyed it, but felt it hard to really empathise with any of the characters, which made me enjoy it less.

    True Detective I enjoy but I'm not sure why I just haven't been hooked enough to really watch the whole thing yet.

    Just saw episode 6. This season has been so good.

    I am concerned though, GoT has never served the fans, and this series everything the fans have wanted is slowly coming together.

    Episode 7 and Season 8 could have some big surprises.

    I need a new series to watch.


    And not GoT because I'm stubborn.
