The GOT finale left a big gap in the SSBB genre ("Swords & Sorcery, Bewbs & Booties").

I found Black Sails, Vikings, Last Kingdom, and Witcher. What are y'all finding?

Black Sails is a lot of fun. I need to finish the last season of Vikings.

There's nothing like GoT. Even with the crappy and disappointing ending, it's still among the most impressive series ever...and easily the #1 fantasy in my book. Through the first 5 seasons, I don't think that any show was close...even Breaking Bad, which is a phenomenal show in it's own right.

Wheel of Time should be OK...but it's source material just wasn't as good at GoT. I really like "The First Law"/"A Blade Itself"...could be a fantastic series or movie trilogy, but it's not on GoT's level. I also love Stormlight Archives, and that probably has the best chance to come relatively close to GoT but they need to find a way to finish up strong.

GOT set the new bar even with that crappy, stupid, rage inducing final season. Did you see where the 1st Season of the new LOTR series had a $1B Production Cost? I am curious to see how that series plays out.
