Cheaters. Now that Swedish public service has stopped showing the news in the early morning, one must find something to watch to the coffee...

I've been doing movies so much more than television.

Last TV I watched was episodes of The Big Bang Theory. But if we're talking last new TV I watched, I guess the final season of "Voltron: Legendary Defender" on Netflix in December.

I'm not a fantasy fan, but I was talked into watching Game of Thrones. I've bingewatched it on HBO and am currently on the last episode of season 6.

I liked it! Though some plot elements were predictable, the series as a whole wasn't. The money put into the series, the effort and the actors made it worthwhile. I was glad to see not only Julian Glover, but Diana Rigg in such a prominent role (and my favorite Swedish actor, Max von Sydow also made a brief appearance. When the character first appeared and was played by another actor, I thought that it would've been a good part for von Sydow and then he turned up in a later season). However, the storyline in which he appeared, Bran's journey, was the one that I found to be the least interesting. I also found it difficult to find a character to root for. :D

I thought that I wouldn't finish the first seven seasons before April, but it only took a few weeks...

Not having a character to root, or said another way...hating almost everyone, was one of the reasons it took me so long to get caught up. I watched season 1 when it aired, but was bummed out by the ending and didn't get back to it for another 2 years. Then I think I watched another 2 seasons and again found myself needing some time away from it. It felt in early season like everyone I was rooting for was being taken out, sometimes in the most painful manner.

I think things started to turn around and I started to see some light as I moved through the middle seasons. Last year, I got caught up before the new season.

One thing that actually helped give me something to look forward to was going to the Ramin Djawadi/Game of Thrones concert a few years ago when it was in town. I was not caught up, but went anyway as I was a fan of his and had listened to all the seasons score by that point. Seeing some of the footage on the big screens at the concert, especially one of the battles, had me really looking forward to getting to that point in the show.

Tough watch, and don't care for some of the extreme violence, but the overall arc has me hooked.
