So what would be my favourite TV show?

I'd have to say 'Game of Thrones'. I think that show is phenomenal, in all aspects. The storyline and plot is just out of this world. Each character has their own individual identity and storyline. And across the entire 'Game of Thrones' universe everything is so complex that you don't really know how it fits into the bigger picture until, you know, they show it. And so every episode usually just completely leaves you stunned or, more interested than you were previously.

I think the cinematography is beautiful. The way they do their computer graphics and CGI effects, just blows my mind. Every thing about it is very detail oriented. Like you can look at one of the very first episodes in the first season, and six seasons, you know, down the show, little bits of information and nuances that you wouldn't notice, are still present in the show.

The action, battle scenes, are phenomenal. Very well done. It rivals, you know, big blockbuster movies, I'd say.

So, I really, really like 'Game of Thrones' , definitely looking forward to season seven.
