      Moving away from GOT for a little, anyone ever watch Misfits? Watched it ages ago but think I stopped after season 2.

      Joe Gilgun who plays Rudy in it, what an actor! And his character is absolutely brilliant, really good show imo.

      I think I’ve seen about 3 episodes. Never really had a desire to watch it partly because I’m not sure how a story about medieval wars and dragons has to have gratuitous sex scenes all the time. Anyway, I did watch the most recent episode. Kind of liked it but from what I have read, most hardcore fans are severely pissed off.

      Guess I know how that feels since I felt the same at the end of Lost.

      I was all for her descent in to madness but it needed more time and character development to make her turn to the dark side believable it was all incredibly rushed for an 8 season show.

      Look at how expertly paced the last season of Breaking Bad is in comparison, you fully believe and understand all of the characters motivations at the end.

      Same here mate, I’ve got no problem her turning into a mad women but this should have taken another couple of episodes to build towards. This was right up there with Skywalker turning into Vader. Really disappointed with it, the only bit I enjoyed was the hounds scrap with his brother and his farewell to Arya which was excellent

      One of the great satire novels, has been adapted for TV in a 6 part series.
      If they've got it right, it will be brilliant.

      The article was pretty flattering, so hopefully it's better than the film was.
      It's going to be pretty difficult to capture the humour that runs through the book, but a 6 part adaptation has to have a better chance than the film did.

      Major Major Major Major, is still the funniest explanation of how a character was named tht I've read.
      It's not often I laugh out loud at a book, but I did a lot of it reading this one.

      Duvet was a good shout.

      Garbage finale to a poor final season with the exception of episode 3.

      George Martin was fully involved in writing the ending with the writers of the show

      When he does the books the ending will be the same , the battles will be the same just will have a lot more meat on it as you expect from the books

      I thought the ending was perfect

      Yes it was nice and calm and bland and boring and basically a shadow of the great show it once was.

      I literally felt nothing for a single character in their final scenes as I was numb from the monotony of the whole episode. The f**king CGI dragon rendered the only tiny bit of emotion in a scene that didn't even make any sense.

      Anyway it's done now.

      GRR has already announced after the finale that his ending will be different to the show which I find both hilarious and clever. It guarantees they will be massive sellers as everyone will want to read and visualise how the last two seasons should have went down.
