I'm not against a female Doctor in theory. But the producers' obvious 'diversity' agenda bugs me.

Blood Drive - Quite probably the best show on TV you're not watching. Julian Slink :lol:

Game of Thrones - People complaining about "plot holes" and pointing out pointless little inaccuracies need to get a fucking grip. This whole season has been fantastic so far.

The Mist - Fucked it off after five episodes. What a load of old arse. :lol: :lol:

Mr Mercedes - Stephen King done properly. Only two episodes in but it's brilliant so far.

Twin Peaks - David Lynch makes a TV show for an audience consisting entirely of David Lynch.

Watched the first episode and realised what a shit show it was gonna be. A bunch of boring character interaction, generic plotlines, yaddayadda.

So the Game of Thrones finale was pretty good. The Little Finger stuff was a little anti-climatic, but it was still satisfying. The scenes on the way to, and in, the dragon pit were good too, particularly the reunions between certain characters.

Can't believe there's only six episodes left, and we might have to wait until 2019 for them. :cry:

A lot of people seem to be criticising Littlefinger's death, but I thought it was fine. He died on his knees, snivelling and trying to worm his way out of things. A perfectly appropriate ending.
Theon's story also seems to be annoying people, but that was a real "fuck yeah" moment.
Eventually.

After the complete mess that was the previous episode, I quite enjoyed the finale. Littlefinger's death was pretty fun to watch, and it looks like Theon might actually do something next season. The thing that annoys me about the whole series still crops up though - the whole "steal a wight" thing. I mean really, they should never have expected Cersei to change her mind (especially so easily), and it was obviously more of a risk than was necessary. The fact that the last shot suggests the White Walkers would never have been a threat if you hadn't gone up there and given them a dragon sums it up even more. I get that it's just for plot progression, but surely they could have written it in a way that made actual sense?

So Red Dwarf's back on. First episode was very "by the numbers" Red Dwarf -- mostly entertaining but nothing to write home about. Hopefully the other episodes make a bit more of a splash.
