So after 10 years, this is what we get?

I wish I never read the books or got invested in the TV series. I feel robbed.

Well at least the books can’t be worse if they ever get finished!

SPOILER

I kept expecting Drogon would show up in the last scene to whisk Jon Snow away.

What a complete waste of all those years building up the story, it could have been so much better. Instead they went for a completely formulaic ending. Some of the ideas presented on Youtube could have made a much better endings, like.

Bran being secretly converted or taken over by the Night King when he touched him in the vision at the Three Eyed Raven's cave and Bran warging into Daenerys at the battle of Kings Landing and using her to burn it. Then he takes over Winterfell and an unstoppable army of the dead sweeps down on a totally defenceless south.

Or

Daenerys accidentally setting off the stocks of wild fire hidden under Kings Landing and watching in disbelief as the chain reaction obliterates the city

Or pretty much anything to what we got.

So, while we wait for season 4 of The Expanse later this year or the next Westworld series I guess it might be time to dive back in to Black Mirror. The darkness of Charlie Brooker's writing is a complete turn around from his previous work and quite refreshing. Not one for folk that like a happy ending.

The new season of Archer will be out on the 29th. I'm a bit behind, and have missed a season or two. The new season is sci-fi and set in space. Could be quite good.

Watched Godzilla King of the Monsters the other day. It's much better than the previous one, but then again I was probably one of the few people who enjoyed that one.

I'm looking forward to seeing that. I heard the story was so-so, but the monster fights were great.

I bought a Switch, and so have been playing that rather than watching TV/movies recently. Currently playing Breath of the Wild. Amazing.

The story was ok, not great, but entertaining. It does have some stupid moments in it but overall it's fun fun fun.

Breath of the Wild was amazing, I might delete my save and restart it.
The end boss was a bit of a let down though.
There's a gaming thread now I see!!
