I don’t watch Game of Thrones and that’s OK everyone

Right now, with the beginning of the last ever season of Game of Thrones, I feel like I’m missing out on, or not getting the hype for, some big cultural event. I feel like I am one of a tiny handful of people who don’t watch it and are not caught up in the excitement for the ending. Here’s how it feels to be left out of the conversation everyone seems to be having.

The Walking Dead: This week’s shock deaths prove how much I still care

Carol and Daryl in “The Calm Before”

For a long time now I have been complaining about the quality of The Walking Dead and how I no longer care about what happens. I considered dropping it after the Rick Grimes death fakeout but I still haven’t been able to bring myself to do so – and this week’s episode proved that I’m still into it, more than I actually realised.

Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, co-hosts of the 2019 Golden Globes

Tonight the 2019 awards season kicks off with the Golden Globes! As usual, here is my predictions piece ahead of the event, showing who I think will win versus who I want to win.

I should say that I have been very behind with TV this past year and so most of my TV choices will be guesses based on what I’ve heard/read. My movie selections will be much more educated predictions!

UPDATE: The winners are highlighted in bold.

The Walking Dead time jump has filled me with hope

Basically every recent post that I’ve written about The Walking Dead has been negative and so I naturally went into the time jump episode (which takes place about six-seven years after Rick’s ‘death’) with low expectations, thinking it would be rubbish without Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) in the mix – so imagine my surprise when I liked the episode and was left feeling positive about the future of the show.
