Artaylor. Were you not disappointed by the end of GOT’s. I still haven’t got over it and haven’t rewatched the whole series, something I was planning to do. I usually watched each series several times but haven’t rewatched series 8.

NotAGran55 Sun 11-Jul-21 16:48:25


I used to like that prison programme it was called Bad Girls.
Also Unforgotten, Supervet (with Noel Fitzpatrick) and you
can't beat a bit of Casualty.

Noel Fitzpatrick was on Desert Island discs today .

Hi MayBee I havent seen Series 8 of GoT's yet. We've just got round to rewatching the whole Series from the beginning with the intention of including Series 8 in our watch. I'm aware that many many peeps were disappointed in No. 8 and have a fair idea how it pans out. It's probably to do with the lack of a George RR Martin written prepared for it, though looking forward to reriding the roller coaster of a journey on the way to it.
Looking forward to the 2022 (I think) release of the House of The Dragon prequel series. Paddy Considine is in it - he's terrific.

Gosh. Glad I didn’t give too many spoilers away then. Please let me know what you think of series 8. GOT’s had been the best thing I’ve ever seen and I raved about it and recommended it to everyone for years. I’d love to know what you think of the ending.

Others that have been up there for me over the last 10 years

Peaky Blinders
Ripper Street
Call The Midwife
The Vikings
This is England
The A Word
A Very English Scandal
Frankenstein Chronicals

Currently very much enjoying season 4 of Fargo.

Perhaps I should give Fargo Season 4 another chance then. I gave up after episode 3.
