Re: Films & Telly thread (formerly Will Ferrell etc)

20% they fuck it up, S7 was their first one without books to go by and it was incredibly rushed in terms of people being half way across continents within an episode. In hindsight they wasted far too much time with shit like Reek's torture and Arya's training. It must be the last TV show of this si...

Re: Films & Telly thread (formerly Will Ferrell etc)

I'm not overly bothered by whether or not it's historically accurate myself. History channel or no it's drama, and S5 too often fails on that score. Meh, will watch 6 anyway but no high hopes for it. I do see Michael Hirst is going to be working with Scorcese on a new venture for the History channel...

Re: Films & Telly thread (formerly Will Ferrell etc)

Sixth series was recently confirmed, also confirmed that will be its lot. But aye, it's lost its way. Think it misses Ragnar/Fimmel's charisma more than anything, while Ivar is poorly conceived and poorly cast. I fear 6 is likely to be a lot more of Ivar's evil doings and the actor's cringeworthy pe...

Finished The Wire a while back. Thought it was well worth watching in the end though the 5th series isn't as good as the others, mainly down to one lame central plotline.

Rome was very, very good. Second not as good as the most impressive first but that's mainly due to them finding out it was being cancelled half-way through.
