I don't like coming away from the tv with depression,PTSD or anything like that. I recently found myself "The Mask" from 1994 which is good clean harmless fun.

I finally watched the last season of Game of Thrones (*).
I liked it, I liked the ending too. Everything has been building up to something like this - extremely dramatic, yet strangely uneventful when it counts - and there was sufficient plot twisting to make it more interesting.

I was touched to tears (and also slightly horrified at most war scenes - they really went for it, but again, it felt like the right thing to do, dedicate 2 full episodes to warring).

So what was the fan outrage about back then, what did they want to do differently and why?

(*) It took me almost 5 years to watch all of it. Weird, normally I always binge.

Imagine a cross between a particularly dystopian Black Mirror episode (or Iain M. Banks' concept of digital afterlife), Idiocracy, and The Truman Show... four episodes in, good fun!

I read almost all of them some years ago, all from the library.
Maybe time to re-read them...

It was good fun.
Alas, Season 1 went all too quickly...
Full of crunchy little details like this one
But still a captivating plot; it's not mainly about laughs.

Now watching DEVS. Amazing imagery, mindblowing soundtrack. Contrasting with that, a well grounded murder mystery plot with spy action.
