does anyone have any thoughts on Game of Thrones

Boring

1 Like

all of it or just the last few series

This is highly accurate

Only watched about 15 minutes of the first episode

I thought that was quite exciting

There were boobs and loads of boring stuff

was really really good to start with

got pretty shit though

pretty decent overall on balance but feels like it shouldn’t be because the end was so shite

Jook, you haven’t done Flowers yet. probably should have done it in the comedy thread, but it’s also very dramatic so maybe you can shoehorn it in here.

yeah sums it up. in fact the last series was so shit that it has sapped any energy I had for rewatching or discussing.

these polls are only for shows that have finished- I think Flowers might come back for a 3rd series? (I hope so)

My favourite show about teenagers ever

So many perfect moments, Angela is one of the most real main characters to have existed on screen. All time theme song (tempted by a Go now, go! tattoo), a great TV dad, very genuine friendships, Archers of bloody Loaf on the soundtrack (!!), sates my soft-focus 90s addiction like nothing else, and it manages to easily cope with a truly awful Christmas ep and Jordan being a black-hole of a character for 80% of his time on screen (but that scene with Ricky <3 ). Made me feel more like I was truly a teenage girl deep inside than anything else has before or since. Me and my ATD quote “we had a time, didn’t we have a time?” more than anything else, whenever anything slightly fun/novel/unusual happens, and it makes me grin every time, without fail.

Watched it at least 5 times and going to have to go through it again ASAP now. MSCL >>> Freaks and Geeks, and it’s not even close (it’s pretty close)

Yeah it snuck into my top 20 shows since the first 4 or 5 seasons would be top 5 all time for me, but then it finished appallingly. Hard to know how to judge that, since it’s not really a show you can just stop after 4 seasons and pretend it’s finished. You’ll always know …

if it was the other way around, like started shite and then finished amazing, people would say it was the greatest of all time

but it didn’t and they don’t… so…

Justified.
What a show. We dug coal together.

Also where’s Friday night lights? Or is this going in a special sports drama thread?

I enjoyed watching Game of Thrones. I think it would have been hard to make a good ending that would have reached everyone’s expectations.

Is there a specific reason all the shows are being megathreaded?

We did it, it’s sitting 9th in the overall table (deservedly)
