Veep – season 1

I tried. I failed.

Could not get into Veep even though it would seem to be perfect for me.

I simply don’t care about ANY of the characters. If there was only one NORMAL person, it might have worked.

And the overuse of profanity turns me off.

A wise man once told me: “Profanity is part of a good vocabulary”.

Veep ain’t it.

Game of Thrones (season 6)

Excellent. George R.R. Martin should put away the draft of his next book and simply fill in details around the TV series.

The Starks are some of my favourite characters. They feature very prominently in this season.

Arya training with the Faceless Men is one of the most interesting subplots.

And Jon Snow? … I believe he was killed.:-)

Though too violent for me, I was pleased that major things actually HAPPENED this season. It wasn’t all set-up. Winter is here. Daenerys sets sail to Westeros with her companions, armies and dragons. Cersei is now the new Queen of Westeros.

I hate football, yet loved Friday Night Lights, partly because of Connie Britton.

I dislike both Country and Western music. Would Connie Britton convince me to like Nashville?

Season 1 got a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. People love it. 

Nashville_(Vol_2)

For me it’s OK. Not nearly as good as Friday Night Lights. Too much soap opera. I doubt I’ll go on to season 2.

ABC cancelled the series after 4 seasons. Fans are still trying to #BringBackNashville.
