Game of Thrones – its finally ended

I must say that I was not instantly interested in Game of Thrones when it first got released. I remember tried watching the pilot episode about 4 times before I actually made it to episode 2.

Even by then, the show seemed to have moved very slowly and I was just watching it as my friends were telling me how excellent it was and already 4 seasons had passed so there was a lot of catching up to do .

How I got hooked into Game Of Thrones was actually in episode 9 of season 1 where we see the first of the Stark to get executed and you truly thought that somehow that in the last few minutes there was going to be something that would happen to save Ned Stark.

But nope ! He’s head really did come off and that got me intrigued as it was different and you don’t really know who would be the hero which would last till the end.

Of course over the next few seasons we do see a lot of deaths from people we thought that would live thru. The most dramatic event was the RED WEDDING for me. Truly unexpected episode which I’m sure took everyone by surprise and have never expected to see more Starks die.

Except for Rickon Stark .. never had a connection with this one. He was never really involved in the show …

My favourite season was actually season 6 where we had House Bolton and House Stark battle it out. There was a lot of focus on the northern regions and its armies in this season.

So now with Season 8 finally over and we saw the end of the night king in one of Game of Thrones darkest episodes … and i literally meant DARK as everything seem to have been shot in the night.

And John Snow who had prevented the rise of another mad king or let me rephrase .. mad queen. It was clear that she was headed towards the path of insanity.

So we start to wonder, what other epic tv series do we watch next after literally watching the finale of what took a decade to build up to. And this so coincidentally also happened just not too long after Marvell finished off Avengers Endgame a brilliant end to a decade of buildup.

Now scrolling thru the tv series finding something worthwhile watching. Heck .. even Big Bang Theory just ended ! LoL ….

SO whats next ? Anyone ?? Please no vampire shit as I never did like those series.

The Umbrella Academy

If you are a fan of superhero flicks, you must make time to watch Netflix’s latest series called The Umbrella Academy. The Umbrella Academy is based on an American comic book¬†series created and written by¬†Gerard Way

Just like the comics, season 1 is focused on saving the world from a Apocalyptic event and these superheros which were orphans taken in by Reginal Hargreeves since they were infants nurtured their talents to bring out the potential in them.

I’ve never read the comic book so I won’t be able to compare the plots however after watching a bit of episode 1 , i was hooked till the end of the season. There are only 10 episodes in season 1 so , good enough to fill your entire weekend.

The entire season is filled with really cool soundtracks and if you remember the 90s … you would just love it all.

Rotten Tomatoes gave its a good score of 7.23/10 and here are some of the reviews from critics

By the end of the season, you would be looking forward for Season 2. Not to give out any spoilers, it finished off season 1 very well opening it up nicely for season 2.

So if you do have time this coming weekend, I do suggest you give it a watch and see if you like it. Cheers and have a great week !

NETFLIX Roman Empire – Reign of Blood

Finally managed to sit down and finish Season 1 of Netflix ‘s Docu Series ( Documentary Series ) of the ROMAN EMPIRE – Reign Of Blood. And I was surprised that I managed to go thru all of that.

Revolving around two different timeline of the reign Commodus , it gave insights to the politics within the Empire of ROME and all the challenges they faced to retain power and how decisions made by them made ROME into the most powerful empire in the world.

Season 1 focuses on Commodus the son of Marcus Aurelius who ruled the empire and expanded the Roman Empire throughout most of what we know as Europe now.

It was a mix of both Documentaries and TV Series making it one of Netflix more interesting shows to watch.

So if you do have the time and is interested of a lil bit of history during your weekends, do check this out.
