    I concur. Great episode.

    HBO's Chernobyl is quite intense and disturbing.

    "As we look forward to (or perhaps just brace for) Sunday's Game of Thrones finale, thousands of fans have already thrown in the towel on the showrunners' version of Season 8 and are demanding HBO give someone else have a shot at bringing the series to a satisfying conclusion.

    "More than 16,000 people have now signed an unlikely, fantastical Change.org petition demanding a remake of the final season with someone else holding the keys to the adaptation of George R.R. Martin's still-unfinished A Song of Ice and Fire series."

    Link here.

    Tonight, GOT is over. And given the quality of the final season, a good thing that is.

    Watched the first part of Chernobyl on HBO. Tense and well-done. A true nightmare for the people there.

    George Clooney's version of Catch-22. It's quite painful to watch one of my favorite novels (I taught in AP English for 15 years, so I practically have it memorized!) be so mercilessly butchered. I'm only enduring it because my wife is a big Clooney fan.

    This is a truly gripping show, even though we know what happened. More terrifying than a horror movie.

    The Hot Zone on the National Geographic channel, which begins this Sunday, should make a lovely companion!

    Curious about a few new series coming up soon. Interested in Good Omens on Amazon, with David Tennant. Also curious what the new Luther series will be like.
