After HBO ended its epic series Game of Thrones after the eighth season, fans of the show have been dealing with a void in their life that they never knew existed until they didn’t have the George RR Martin adaptation to love and hate (for the final season, at least). Networks and streaming platforms are now jostling to fill this demand with adaptations of literary sagas and game series that have a grown a strong following over the years. Will His Dark Materials and The Witcher fill the gap?
All in all, I could safely say that Chernobyl is one of HBO’s best miniseries despite the lack of any A-listers on its roster. It was gripping. It was engaging. It was dramatic and shocking in all the right places. It took viewers to a journey through history into the most devastating nuclear disaster that threatened to wipe out an entire nation and more. It was a humbling to witness it and leaves one to contemplate one’s mortality in the face of today’s world challenges. I am awed.
All in all, Her Private Life was so much more that its fangirling concept. It was an engaging journey about finding love, redemption, endings and beginnings in the most unexpected places. It doesn’t take an overly complicated plot or tons of kissing scenes (although the good news is that Her Private Life has plenty) to make a wonderful Kdrama work. A well planned story, with the addition of a great cast, great script and great soundtrack makes for a memorable Kdrama and this one is it.
All in all, I would still recommend both the movie and the series for fans of romance and fantasy. Both versions had great cast members, all gorgeous who will make you fall in love with both the gaming world and their characters. Its worth a watch. Pro Tip: Both versions are available on Netflix.
Sometimes, timing is everything and I watched “I Hear You” at a time I only wanted to feel love and happiness. This is all that this show promises so if you don’t mind the issues that I have presented, go ahead and follow my lead. Numb your brain for 18 hours and enjoy this show. Its still worth a watch in my book.
All in all, while the last half of Season 8 was shaky at best, Game of Thrones was able to come out with a passable ending. It wasn’t the epic conclusion that fans had their hearts set out on for a variety of reasons, but it at least made sense, and its an ending that fans can make peace with in the long run, just as Westeros did with their new ruler.
At the end of the day, no one can do a better job of ending the series that its author George RR Martin, even when there are better writers. Now, all that’s left is to actually wait for the books to see if they are any better, that is after GRRM makes time to write after consulting for the three GOT spin offs in the works. That’s where you get your do-over. Not HBO.
By the end of Netflix’s The Society Season 1, it seems that there are more questions than answers […]
I immediately got started on Netfix original series “The Society” as soon as it became available becauseI’m a […]
All in all, of the episodes that I have watched, “The Comedian” was the weakest and I think it was a bad idea to lead the series with this episode. It was sub par for “The Twilight Zone” standards but don’t lose hope after this one because the other episodes do deliver on expectations. “The Twilight Zone” is well worth following.
