    I'm pretty sure he played the role in seasons 4-8, and was not substituted (he took over from two previous actors starting season 4).

    Watching GoT season 8 again. It does have its weaknesses from episode 3 onward, but there is still lots to enjoy even in those. The first two episodes are great.

    I've been binge watching television shows lately on my laptop, which is something I've not done in a long while.

    I just finished watching a good spy thriller called, "The Night Manager", which is based on a novel by John Le Carré. It's on Amazon Prime Video: https://www.amazon.com/Episode-1/dp/...vies-tv&sr=1-1

    Before that I watched a BBC television series called, "The Secret of Crickley Hall", which is a creepy haunted house series, with two parallel dramas. It was also on Amazon Prime: https://www.amazon.com/The-Secret-Of.../dp/B07C4J2QPT

    And before that I watched a series on Amazon Prime called, "Catastrophe", a funny comedy that is well written and well acted: https://www.amazon.com/Episode-1/dp/...o%2C176&sr=1-1

    Just started it. So far so good, but I wonder if it will live up to the heights of the 3rd season. Lots of my favorite characters are dying.

    I'm issuing no spoilers or anything, but this season left me wanting more. And more. I hope season 5 is already in the can and unaffected by Covid, but there's a lot of good shows we may have to wait for...

    Seems a decent show so far, but one thing is really bugging me and that's the restless/shaky camera filming style. It's starting to get on my nerves.
    Am I the only one who thinks this is tiresome and annoying?
    A good example would be the sitcom Modern Family, which is almost unwatchable for me.

    I watched all of the Waco series on Netflix, and a little bit of a show starring Ricky Gervais called Afterlife. Waco was pretty good, some good acting and actually does a decent job exposing the corruption of the FBI and the media. Afterlife seems pretty humorous but didn't grab me enough to continue watching it. Gervais recent Golden Globes monologue however was highly entertaining, its the main reason I gave the show a chance.

    I think it works in this case, an action packed show, to kind of "keep the viewer on his toes" so to speak, to convey the general anxiety of what's going on. Of course, in a show like Modern Family, it makes absolutely no sense.

    One of the greatest-ever series produced for television, "Cracker" - starring the extraordinary Robbie Coltrane. A series for very grown up people about a forensic psychologist; a hard-drinking, gambling, unreliable, philandering bear of a man with all the faults and failings but an interesting and attractive human being who is adored by his wife and his colleague Penhaligen. Coltrane picks up all the complexities in the character of "Fitz" and imbues his character with a charisma which most actors can only dream about. Magnificent writing and acting:

    Don't tell me - there is a ballroom scene where the belles glance coquettishly from behind their fans and all of the beaux have got great hair.
    '...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).
