Whelp, my memory failed me again. I thought there were eight episodes for this season. Even though last night weighed in at a record-setting 82 minutes, I still feel unsatisfied! I need more GOT!
But this is all I am going to get for at least a year. I heard Season 8 might not even air until 2019!
The writers have definitely trimmed some of the loose threads this season. As befits the penultimate season, we were left with a doozy of a cliffhanger too.
I’ll have to settle in and wait for the Blu-ray release now.
My friend Dan and I both had that reaction and emailed each other as much after last night’s show.
The compressed season definitely has a forced feel to a lot of events; but I am still enjoying Game Of Thrones as much as ever. There are only two episodes left for this season. This makes me wonder how the show will leave us with a cliff-hanger.
I won’t say anything further because that is not this blog’s primary purpose. There are other great resources out there for anyone who wants to dig deeper and/or get spoilers.
Just…wow! No Spoilers. I promise. I won’t talk about anything that happened in last night’s episode.
I am glad that I added HBO to my cable package for this. I’m still cancelling it immediately after Thrones ends in 8 weeks. But…wow!
Winter is here at last and things are going to get very interesting. There is already some intriguing character development.
I can hardly wait to see more.
I don’t think I have ever talked about Game Of Thrones on this blog. I am a big fan though, of both the show and the books.
I’ve never subscribed to HBO before. But I am – temporarily – subscribing for the duration of Season 7. In the past, I have worked hard to avoid spoilers until the Blu-ray release is available. That would not be too bad if the wait were just a few months like it is for most films. Game Of Thrones is over by the end of summer and the Blu-ray release isn’t until mid-winter. Agony!
Here are some of my favourite GOT resources online:
Both YouTube channels explore histories of the Ice & Fire world as well as fan theories and trailer analysis. Each has a unique style and approach that is compelling and interesting.
Now for George R. R. Martin to finish The Winds Of Winter!
Alright, I am several seasons late to this show. But the first season of Heroes came to the top of my Netflix queue and I am sorry that I missed out on this when it was first aired.
Without any particular evidence, I had immediately written-off Heroes as being formulaic. Hollywood had already thrown a lot of superhero stuff our way – although I liked the X-Men movies, I didn’t want to see the idea re-hashed on a smaller screen.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how the plot for Heroes has twisted thus far. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the episodes.
