Not my stuff at all judging from the official web-site (and I consider myself a connoisseur in binge watching), but Swisstree has even got me interested in it now .
This is the official web-site right?:

It actually ISN'T my cup of tea at all: it should be, because of all its component parts and I'm very much a fantasy geek, but... nope. I don't like it. I personally think it has rather a nasty, misogynistic streak to it. The men only think with their swords (both kinds) and the women are mainly naked and abused.


For those of you who love GOT, I make no apologies, but obviously this is only my lone wilderness-voiced opinion! The dragons are cool, obviously... My main problem is I hated the damn books. Martin writes like a teenage boy who isn't/will never get any and who is constantly bullied by the bigger boys.



Does it get better? I dropped out after two episodes, despite the fact that the cast is simply brilliant.

Outlander... meh. Again, hated the damn book and am not into Highland anything (ironic as I married a Scot...!) but LOVE White Collar. It's undemanding, smooth, twisty-turny crime hi-jinks and the two main leads are very easy on the eye. Eye candy binge watching!

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

Bloodline does get better if you are into family intriges/deceit , good acting

Maybe "Ray Donovan" is more your cup of tea :

'Tis a story about prominent women who rise to power out of the flames of destruction and turmoil -

Sturgeon in the North, May in the South, Clinton to the West and Merkel to the East..

Shifting powers; constant change; treachery and back-stabbing; sex, blood and gore..

And Winter's coming..

Winter? summers just arrived and were all wanting winter! p Your synopsis could be the trailer for series 7

Ha! I also meant to write (again) the 3 dragons are Juncker, Schulz and Tusk.. as you might have noticed one of her dragons is more powerful and scarier than the other two.

Now, who could Cameron be?

Thankfully, Farage is gone, met a terrible end -- he better not rise again and show up in S7.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

For those of you who want to see Mr Robot and can get Sky then you'll be swamped by it this week. Not only do Syfy have it (which they've been plugging like mad), but also Universal Channel will be running it as well - before Syfy too. Both channels are owned by NBCUniversal, but really folks I think they could have done a little better in the scheduling department. But then again, no one seems to care much about TV schedules at al these days.

Thursday 21st July:
Universal - Ep 1 9pm, Ep 2 10.05, repeated 2am and 3 am
Syfy - Ep 1 11pm, Ep 2 12.20am

Friday, 22nd July:
Syfy - Ep 1 9pm, Ep 2 10.20

And of course they both have +1 channels. So if you miss it it's your own fault.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

Ash vs Evil Dead is proving to be a riot. It's a Starz show, so take the gore from Spartacus, throw in some zombies with a splash of dark humour and leave to simmer.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

Warning for "The Musketeers" fans. Episode 9 is on Saturday at 8.30pm and the final, FINAL episode is on Monday at 9pm. Olympics start on Friday, 5th August so I assume that's why the move.

Braindead

Not for republican snowflakes .. ants from outer space enter a persons ear and half their brians drop out of their ear and they become republicans, not a promising plotline but its gripping and funny and the characters are likeable, even the republicans

Rush Hour

He's no Chris Rock but you get used to him, its a bit like Psyche but with Jackie Chan.

Us too. I was surprised that I couldn't find any other recommendation. The plot frequently requires Eva Green to take her clothes off. And rest is pretty gory and shocking. So, well worth watching .

Great new show on Netflix or if you are a cunning torrent user anywhere online:

Stranger Things

To satisfy those fans of the Goonies meets the X Files in a Spielbergesque SciFi/horror way.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

Is anyone watching Bojack Horseman?


Quite a few people have recommended it to me very highly ---I'm a couple episodes in and I'm not 'blown away' yet.

Does it get better---or is it very character driven, and I just have to get to know the people?
