    What are you watching?

    YEARS AND YEARS It's so spot on it is scary. I highly recommend it.

    Chernobyl

    Give a go to the podcasts (on Youtube, Spotify). They are very interesting as well. For instance ... regarding the final episode. The explanation bit was as accurate as possible. But one major artistic licence concerned the presence (or absence) of some key persons. For instance, Legasov and Shcherbina did not actually attend the trial. A lot of the scenes were, for obvious reasons, filmed elsewhere. Like the decommissioned power plant Ignalina in Lithuania (luckily, the structures were mostly identical). I did notice some anachronisms as well ("plastic" window frames in some apartment buildings), but sometimes these are just inevitable and not that harmful. And to add more fuel to the fire, according to IMDb ... "As a result of the series' depiction of the accident, the russian government has announced it will do a version of its own, with the true facts: that the powerplant exploded due to a bomb put by CIA agents." Overall, I think the show was quite impressive. I spent a lot of time talking about it with my friends, or doing some additional reading or documentary watching.

    This would have been a better ending (for those who know/remember Dallas and Bobby and Pamela)

    Game of Thrones

    Why on earth would they go for a king and united kingdom all over again ? It's obvious it's a bad idea. The north and the south and the east and the west can hardly tolerate each other. They all have different characters and mindsets and interests etc. They should have reverted to the pre-Targaryen way of ruling ... each realm led by one of the local people. And Bran the Broken ? More like Bran the Terminator or Exterminator. He caused the death of the last children of the forest etc. He did nothing against the NightKing and just let thousands of people die for him. And he, most conveniently, forgot to mention that , as the 3-eyed-raven, his lifespan is probably longer than the normal person's. At least a thousand years. But I assume they were afraid of him because he seems to know many troubling details about people. And it seems that he is likely to miss the Small Council meeting as much as his predecessor (Joffrey, Robert ...). So - again - who needs him anyway ? And the Small Council ... what a stupid joke. Bronn master of coin ? I want my tears (and years) back.

    The podcasts are also interesting. The writer of the series explains some details, some decisions not to include certain information, or viceversa - to alter/reimagine it. Podcasts are also on Youtube and other apps (like Hbo Go).

    About the finale ... only 2 official photos have been released. I wonder where all those Unsullied came from. They seem to have multiplied like mushrooms after rain. http://watchersonthewall.com/game-thrones-season-8-episode-6-photos-released/

    Chernobyl

    In April 1986, an explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics becomes one of the world's worst man-made catastrophes. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7366338/episodes?season=1&ref_=tt_eps_sn_1 An HBO miniseries (5 episodes) Based on actual events I have seen the first 2 episodes and I feel hooked. It's grim and captivating at the same time. All I can think of, after each episode, is how easy it is for such a disaster to occur. All that devastation left afterwards ... Give it a try. Trailer

    Game of Thrones

    But Kinglanders didn't care either about the troubles of those in the North who defended and protected them. I'm not sure what people in Indonesia have to do, directly, with those in Ukraine , or vice versa. Whereas Northerners have always been a shield and a buffer for those "below" them. Anyway ... I can't say care more for Kinglanders than for others. And regarding the fact that they did not choose their leaders ... they did not oppose and rise against them either.

    Game of Thrones

    In hindsight ... to a certain extent, I'm not that upset about the destruction of King's Landing. I consider it their tribute, in blood, for their lack of interest and lack of involvement in what the North had always had to deal with (wights, white walkers etc.). I've said before I don't think it was fair for "the real war" to be fought only in the North ... they should have brought the WhiteWalkers further south so that other realms face the threat as well. The folks of King's Landing did not demand mercy for Ned Stark and would have enjoyed Margaery's walk of shame , even if she was nice to the poor people (even if for the sake of appearances). Dany sacrificed her dragons and her soldiers ... for what and for who ... ? "so plump little lords like you can enjoy their summer afternoons in peace and comfort" (as Benjen Stark said to Tyrion). On a different note ... it seems the filming for the GoT prequel pilot has already begun. http://watchersonthewall.com/game-thrones-prequel-pilot-begins-filming-northern-ireland/

    Well ... by bad then ... I would not have expected someone, especially someone involved in GoT, to invent such a thing. Such a Shame!

    Game of Thrones

    Well well well ... according to "ser Barristan" ... the books nos 6 and 7 are already finished. The author postponed their publication in order not to distract/divert fans from the show's final season. He says so in this interview, at around 31:40

    Game of Thrones

    It's because Drogon acquired plot armor. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=plot%20armor I haven't watched the episode yet, but I do know what happened. To quote somebody from Youtube: I expected nothing but still got disappointed. They ignored so many interesting & potentially useful previous plot threads (Cersei killed by the younger sibling; the prophecy about the prince(ss) that was promised). My guess is that the show will probably end with the seven kingdoms going back to being ruled just by local lords (Storm's End by Gendry, Pyke by Yara ... etc.). Just like it was before the Targaryens came. Jon will probably step down in favor of Sansa (she seems to enjoy to rule). But still ...
