Hey thanks for the video clip Eraser :up:

Funny enough, I have never seen footage of the series at all. As I don't have cable TV to access HBO I searched and I do see all series/episodes on the net on those sites. I checked IMDB and see the series started in 2010 but ratings were very low but it has since climbed in popularity.

The question is, is it worth watching from the start? I ask because I figure I might get the DVD(s).

Whiskey, it depends on where your interest lie. GoT is called a fantasy series, but the fantasy aspect of GoT is dialed way down. It's more about intrigue, conspiracies, politics, betrayal and such. 80% of the series is conversations between characters but there's always a point to it. The other 20% is fighting and large scale battles. It's probably not that different from a series like House of Cards, except that it plays in a medieval fantasy world where Dragons are a thing. Oh yeah, and there's quite a bit of explicit sex in there. Not pornography, but if you shy away from seeing naked boobies on your TV, then you might want to skip a few parts.

I didn't really enjoy the series the first two episodes though, but I stuck with it and by the end of season 1, I was a big fan. You might want to consider getting season 1 first and watching that before you pick up the other seasons.

I had the same problem as Eraser, I had to force myself through the 1st couple of episodes before I started enjoying it but I think you'll have that problem even if you started at season 2.

Soon as you work out the characters though you'll be well away.

And the entire show is like fantasy and mystery that relies a lot on character performances and good writing. You never really know what direction it's gonna swing in next.

Dragons & boobies on TV, nothing wrong with that. It is just that some of these shows I've started in the past dwell too much on the fantasy side. Your mention of intrigue, conspiracies, politics, betrayal and that 80% of the series are conversations between characters is reassuring as is the comment 20% is fighting and large scale battles.

I could d/l I suppose but figure there must be a box-set around somewhere :D

Fuck Cranston. He's good, but the characters in Saul are so much better. Kim is the absolute anti-Skyler. Mike is the fucking man. The Salamancas are a thing and it's merging with BB more and more. Get in.

Yeah, Better Call Saul is brilliant. Quite different from Breaking Bad though. Must admit I instantly fell in love with BB though.

House of Cards on the other hand... gave up on it after half a season. Was convinced by people to keep watching and I continued watching and now I love it. Watching season 4.

First season of House of Cards was great, the rest is satirical garbage.

I'm going through Enterprise now :)

Even the 'shit' seasons are pretty good. We were spoiled back then.

You should watch Stargate too ;p

Memph, check out "The Captains", which is a documentary by William Shatner where he interviews all of the Star Trek Captains (Picard, Sisko, Janeway and the Enterprise and reboot movies ones). It's on Netflix if you have that.

I second this. It's gonna feel a little dated, but christ on a bike there's a lot of episodes, it just goes on and on and on. Used to love watching it stoned, good times. Atlantis was the best.

Kinda miss those 'feel good scifi' shows like Stargate and Star Trek, they don't seem to make em anymore :(

Mention here of Stargate had me watching Stargate: The Ark of Truth I recorded off the TV a while ago..
Nice to see the cast but I found a little disappointing.

Agreed. Star Trek really gives me the warm and fuzzies.

Andromeda, Farscape and Babylon 5... I really couldn't get into them :). Andromeda I tried very hard to n all, cos it was Gene Roddenberry innit ?. I think the Farscape cast eventually ended up on Stargate too, if I remember. Even the Doc from Voyager makes a few appearances. Firefly pretty much represented the death of this kind of Sci Fi genre, massive shame seeing as it ruled as a good formula since the original Star Trek.

With Stargate though I especially liked the episodes where they took the piss outta themselves. Like this one -



You lot catch SG:Universe n all ?, completely different approach but I was getting into it. They kept the characters way too shadey though.

Whisk - I think the other Stargate film was better n all, Continuum. It wasn't great but kept a better tone with the episodes.

I remember as a kid too, this being on at 1 in the morning -

I have heard but never watched Firefly and I have Stargate Continuum somewhere on my PC... checking ... :) so I better watch it.

Ooops, I searched the PC with *Stargate* and found 50 Stargate Universe episodes :eek: (shitty avi format so they must be old)

Indeed :D

With Babylon 5, Farscape and Andromeda I think it pushed it too far. Andromeda especially, the premise was brilliant but it went way over the top.

This was the same ep -



The icing on the cake in that is they have Farscape characters playing Farscape characters in SG
