It's only the best show of all time.
If you're interested I can PM you a website.
I'll watch all of it.
When the first men came to Westeros.
Dunk and Egg..
Just give me more.
This may actually be an understatement
would be much appreciated
Breaking Bad was a great show but GOT is in its own league. I don't see how you can even compare the two.
Breaking Bad was a simple show with ok actors and a really good storyline. If you watched Breaking Bad week to week then there were some disapointing episodes.
Game Of Thrones is way more complex but the show can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be.
The actors from top to bottom are amazing. Absolute quality.
You can get it by episode on Amazon for $1.99
Have you got a link for that $1.99 per episode deal? I've checked Amazon and all I've seen per episode is $3.99.
You can get HBO Now for free for a month if you sign up but you have to remember to cancel your membership in a month.
If it were me.... Knowing how great the show is... I would just buy the DVD's.
Robert's Rebellion would be great. I would love to see the tourney at Harranhall, the knight of the Laughing Tree, and Rhaegar's supposed conspiracy against his father.
I think showing the Doom of Valaryia would be cool to see.
It's available on Netflix DVD, just not streaming.
I buy a lot of movies on bluray, but only 2 TV shows make the cut. Firefly and GoT. I was a fan of the books first, though.
Go to the library and read the books..they're better anyway.
LOL, yeah sure.
It's certainly the best Fantasy show all time. And definitely a juggernaut as far as shows go in general.
The books are my favorite books all time, would definitely recommend, if you read.
GoT may be more exciting than Breaking Bad, and have a far more epic scale and budget. But I wouldn't really say it was a "better" show. Breaking Bad is damn near perfection. But GoT it's still a "Must See" Show. It will be pop culture relevant for years and years to come. At this point it's sort of like saying "I haven't seen Star Wars".
Breaking Bad was great but it had it's fair share of throw away episodes that were meh and kinda became a parody of itself with Walter always having some genius way to get out of anything.
Game Of Thrones hits almost every single week. It never takes a week off. Season 5 was probably the worst season and it was still great compared to any other show.
The actors on breaking bad were solid actors but nothing like Game Of Thrones.
GOT, imo, is just so much more of a quality show then Breaking Bad.
Breaking Bad had such an epic finish that I think some of it's lackluster episodes are catching a break.
Maybe it was just me but it seemed that every season of Breaking bad had that one episode that was really slow and more full of clues, foreshadowing or the like that was really slow and boring. Whether it be a dream sequence type episode or the Fly episode where the whole episode they are looking for the fly in the lab but it was full of metaphors and so on. Still informative but frankly very boring and could have done without for the most part and it seemed like there was at least one episode like that per season.
However you could look past it because the rest of the shows were usually pretty good. Plus Breaking Bad was one of those shows that could be slow but still have that grit underneath as it built up to something.
GOT...it seems like almost every episode had some kind of excitement to it. There were episodes upon episodes that I would call DANNNNGGG as something major would happen. In some episodes more than one DAANNNG (family friendly version of what I normally would say during the show) moments in an episode.
I mean I can remember a few killer parts of Breaking Bad looking back on it...Gus and Tuco's uncle in the nursing home, Danny Trejo's head on the tortoise, Heisenberg Blowing up Tucos office...Walter telling skyler he IS the danger and he IS the one knocking...the ending...But even as great as those were...I don't know if any of them can stand up to the shock at the end of Season One of GOT with Ned Stark. The Red Wedding later in the series, The Lannister Children scenes, The viper and the mountain. Tyrion vs Tywin.
GoT is so vast and full of historical stories and lore.
The Dunk and Egg book is one of the best pieces I've read, and I've read everything from fan fiction to the series. The way HBO brought it to life with shuttle changes makes it my favorite piece of entertainment, blowing Star Trek and Star Wars and comics out of the water.
I would love a Dunk and Egg series to run opposite GoT, then do it 100 or so years after the conclusion of GoT.
I used Showbox and binged the first five seasons in a 3 day weekend before season 6 came out.
Just bought A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms on google.
Of course I got a good deal of books I have bought for my tablet that I have yet to get around to reading.
