  • Enjoying the Game of Thrones endings

    Unlike most of the Internet, or at least the most visibly boosted tweets and comments, I liked how Game of Thrones ended. This isn’t meant as a controversial statement nor as an excuse for the bad parts of the last two seasons. This article is, in part, for me...
  • Forget Game of Thrones, Barry is HBO’s – and TV’s – Best Show

    Game of Thrones is the biggest show on TV, and it has every right to be. For 8 seasons now it has grown into a mammoth global hit because of its tremendous writing, intimate character drama and increasingly epic scale. It’s one of my favourite shows, not just of...
