Only a few days to go for GOT
Expecting one dragon to die (may be Drogon) and become an ice dragon for the King.
Interesting season ahead.

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

If anyone wants a bit of Swiss history in English Yesterday channel on Sky (CH537, +1 CH538) Medieval Dead series has the Battle of Dornach on at 5pm UK time (15 minutes away), or on the +1 at 6pm UK. Around 5,000-6,000 Swiss soldiers wiped out 15,000 Holy Roman Empire soldiers. And I mean wiped out - killed every single one of them.

GoT series 7 is nearly here.

And, it seems.. Ned Stark is alive?! meme heaven
So, as expected we got the blood, guts and disgusting yucky things spilling out of unspeakable places that was the first episode of new GoT.. but I was not prepared in anyway for Ed Sheeran and his funny beard singing a twee little song in the forest.. WTF? I am truly appalled.. how vile and horrible!

A disgrace.. someone needs to complain.

Pity Maisie didn't just clobber him..

Evidently a lot of people did.

"Others were not so impressed, with some expressing the hope that Sheeran might get eaten by Arya's direwolf Nymeria, who is expected to make an appearance in the next episode."

"If Arya doesn't burn Ed Sheeran he'll come back as a white walker and be playing Westeros Glastonbury for thousands of years," Zack Jones tweeted."

"Another, Mike Ryan, noted: "Ed Sheeran's Game of Thrones introduction had all the grace and nuance as the time Alice and the gang at Mel's Diner met Jerry Reed."

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/tv/2017/0...thrones-cameo/

"Yet critics were far less complimentary about Sheeran, whose appearance as a soldier was dubbed "jarring" and "unsubtle" by The Independent's Christopher Hooton.

In his role as an unnamed singing soldier, the chart-topping performer is seen telling Maisie Williams' Arya Stark that the song he is singing is "a new one".

According to the Daily Mirror, the exchange "could only have been more awkward if he'd winked at the camera after and said 'Available at all good record stores'."

He's now deleted his Twitter account due to the backlash.

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

Last episode of "Ripper Street" on BBC2 at 9pm UK time tonight.

Good that they're wrapping the story up for a proper ending and not leaving it hanging high and dry. I hate it when that happens.

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

I'm also saving up for the binge:

Poldark
The Handmaid's Tale

The problem with patiently collecting episodes in your recordings, until it is time to watch them in their entirety, is that the expectation is so high. I just don't want to be let down!

Not happening quite yet, but something to look forward to...

For all "American Horror Story" fans out there: producer Ryan Murphy revealed that Season 7 will be related to Freak Show (Season 4) but will be set in modern day, and will revolve around the 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections.

Premiere date has not been released yet, but it's usually in September-October.

Yummy!
Self-quoting: American Horror Story premiere date now released, September 5th.
Subtitle: CULT.

Nom nom, I can't wait.
