    Halfway through the second season of Sneaky Pete. This is without a doubt the most complicated multi-plot series I've ever seen, and one of the most fun.

    I've started binge watching Game of Thrones from the start. Again. Fourth time over the years, I think. I'm watching the Battle of Blackwater right now (2.7).

    Why do you torture yourself so? Some people talk about series with disappointing finales. This one had a disappointing final 2-3 seasons.

    Only the final GoT season was ultimately disappointing to me. I still enjoyed seasons 6 & 7 a lot. And parts of season 8.
    I'm certainly not going to watch it again anytime soon, if ever. It was a great ride while it lasted, most of the time... but the conclusion.... meh. I realize it was hard to bring all of that to a satisfying conclusion, but this was just too frustrating after 7 seasons of build-up.

    I have no issues with the general story lines of seasons 6-8, including the major arc conclusions. Execution (the script) could have been better in lots of places, but there was still a lot to enjoy. Seasons 1-5 are still of an amazing high standard. And the acting (and the music, and the special effects) throughout has been fantastic.

    The Sandbaggers

    The Sandbaggers is a British television drama series about men and women on the front lines of the Cold War. Set contemporaneously with its original broadcast on ITV in 1978 and 1980, The Sandbaggers examines the effect of espionage on the personal and professional lives of British and American intelligence specialists.
    ...

    The overall style is gritty realism. The series is particularly grim (though laced with black humour), depicting the high emotional toll taken on espionage professionals who operate in a world of moral ambiguity. The Sandbaggers aimed to invert most of the accepted conventions of the spy thriller genre. In direct contrast to the "girls, guns, and gadgets" motif established by the James Bond movies, The Sandbaggers features ordinary people in extraordinary jobs of work. In keeping with the focus on realism, there are very few action sequences and the equipment available to the operatives are standard vehicles and regular issue tools.
    We few, we happy few, we band of chipmunks....

    I vaguely remember this. It struck me as a kind of continuation of Callan in terms of its nuts and bolts grittiness.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Outstanding and laugh-out-loud funny. Superb script and superlative acting.

    Finished my re-watch of Game of Thrones seasons 1-7 (Second time). As before, by the end of the 7th season I found myself much less entertained. I purchased the first 7 seasons on Blu-ray/streaming. Certainly won't purchase the 8th season. Debating whether to binge watch the eighth season for free by signing up for free trial of the HBO channel on Amazon Prime Video.

    I'm re-watching the Star Trek original series right now too.

    I have also tried a couple of newer shows recently, one called 'You' about a serial killer, it was ok but started to get boring after about half a dozen episodes. I also watched the Chernobyl mini series, and thought it was very good.
