    I also found it difficult to follow GoT because of so many characters and stories within the big story and remembering all that is hard after a year when the next season starts.


    " It is true, Pakistan cricket is not defined by planning, it is not defined by team work and it is not defined by an entire match. It is defined by moments, moments of inspiration, moments of magic, moments when the unsung become the sung, when the world starts rotating in the opposite direction, when the abnormal becomes the normal, when delusion becomes logic – it is when the stars align.

    These are shows you binge watch .. so its easier to remember what happened 2 seasons ago especially if tis GOT.. True Detective is a show you want to watch without distractions because there are subtle clues along the way.... its more of a "whodunnit and where he is" kind of a story.

    Perfect for binge watching those two.

    Best show of all time is Sopranos. All the HBO & other TV network shows you see today are based on the soprano template.

    Sopranos changed television history forever & bought movie like intensity to TV screen. Watch it, wont be disappointed.

    I think "House of Cards" just broke all boundaries. Truly remarkable show.

    Have to mention Lost, Breaking bad and Better call Saul as well. I have not seen Sopranos, never got into it.

    I tried to like it but just couldn't. I just found some of the acting and writing bad. I also thought it was a bit repetitive. Stopped at season 3 and I heard that it dips in quality after season 4 so I didn't bother watching any more.

    BD on the top? I found it to be boring for most part. Liked the overall story but it dragged on forever. I fast forwarded quite a few times from season 3 to 4

    Im surprised to see such few mention of prison break. The most addictive show till date

    It's all subjective as far as what's the best is concerned but my personal favourite has been LOST, I don't think I've been so invested emotionally in a group of characters. Will rarely get mentioned in the top 10's of most plus came out before the golden era of TV series

    I think the best written show was Breaking Bad while GOT has the best Universe/environment.

    Had been watching walking dead infrequently over the years, stopped and then got back into it. Finished watching season 5 but haven't began season 6 as it's a bit addictive and don't want to be watching it too much Flash watched first season and it was pretty good, am more into dark and gritty characters but still enjoyed Flash

    Why they added characters from Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow TV Shows into The Flash? and with this alien episode it's becoming like X-Files. At the end of this episode of The Flash it says to be to be continued on Arrows. Now this is confusing are they going to mix up all these 3 shows?

    Was reading comments in The Flash IMDB page and someone asked "What order do you watch the Crossover episodes in?"

    And the answer was (current seasons in this order):

    SuperGirl (episode 8), The Flash (episode 8), Arrow (episode 8) and finally LoT (episode 7)

    The answer to this would be : You don't. You don't watch any of these trashy shows.

    I don't watch other 3 shows i just watch The Flash and first 2 seasons were good but this third season is already disappointing although many episodes still left.

    Why are their crossover episodes? are these shows by same team?

    Gimicky crossovers are common in such poor shows. The shows themselves have no real quiality so they rely on rubbish like this. The movie equivalent of such shows would be suicide squad or batman vs superman. The worst part is so many people actually watch this kind of trash and are missing out on some real quality tv. Oh well. Their loss

    This is a blunder they are trying to cash The Flash popularity to make other 3 rubbish shows a success i guess that's their thinking but this way it will hurt The Flash as well. Arrows characters were appearing time to time for a few scenes in last 2 season of The Flash but this season they are mixing 4 different shows not only Arrows

    Yeah man definitely one of the most entertaining ones, had me hooked..

    Maybe not the quality of GoT/Dexter/BB but still I want to watch it so bad now too.

    Too bad they discontinued it because of some petty protests from some religious leaders, but the directing and quality was top class and would've loved to see them continue on further into the golden age.

    I just realized what you meant. You are right though. I used to watch wrestling quite a bit up till 2010 but now it's nothing short of a joke.

    I also highly rate The Blacklist and Gotham.

    The first two seasons of the Blacklist were insane - quality has dipped a bit in the 4th season but still a top notch show.

    Gotham has to be one of the best versions of the Batman storyline I have seen. Just hope Bruno Heller does not ruin it like he did with the Mentalist.

    I gave up after Undertaker's streak ended at Wrestlemania. That was the main draw for me - CM Punk leaving also was a major letdown.

    Sick and tired of Roman Reign's, Authority, John Cena etc.

    I stopped watching after Shawn Michaels retired. Not because of his retirement but because things got too childish after that. Too much talking as well

    Talking is good when you have people who know how to talk. Not the same rubbish that Cena, Authority and Daniel Bryan's cringeworthy "Yes" chant that we were forced to listen too.

    CM Punk era from 2011-13 was the last good WWE era - been downhill ever since....

    I stopped watching it when HBK retired given that he's me all time favorite and don't blame you for tuning out around 2010 as I did to because the PG era was in full flow at that point. While things can always be better the product has improved significantly and creatively things have benefited from a brand split once again, creatively SD is so much better then RAW at the moment. The Authority shtick is pretty much gone, Cena is a part timer and Reigns has improved as a performer but its hard to shake off the bad booking he had to deal with plus they refuse to turn him heel.

    Gotham season 1 was one of the worse shows ive ever seen, certainly got better in second season but still no where near the best.

    Cena's gimmick is one dimensional and one ought to get sick of it but he remains one of the greatest mic workers of all time. Daniel Bryan got over with the fans in a way which others have unable to for years, his underdog gimmick wasn't bad at all and over the years he had proved his versatility in various face/heel roles plus as a technical wrestler he is arguably the greatest and up there with the likes of Malenko and Chris Benoit.

    Yeah, a shame Punk left; he was terrific on the mic. There's a guy called AJ Styles, who I've rated as an ATG for years and he has finally cemented his legacy in the WWE; his character work has been terrific and he's the closely thing to HBK I've ever seen @aliasad1998

    Yeah season 1 had too much filler and "monster of the week" rubbish, improved significantly in season 2 with a narrative which was a lot more coherent with lengthier story arcs. Not watched season 3 yet. Gotham would have benefited big time from being on a platform like Netflix where creativity and content isn't so limited, plus it would be a lot more darker/grittier

    I quit after Edge retired. Used to hate the guy growing up he looked like a white witch, but I grew to respect the guy as I grew older, and am waiting on the chance to use spear irl

    But after he retired I started following less and less and once Punk quit I was done entirely.

    Remember the live xyz celebration between Edge and Lita on RAW that is the main reason why @aliasad1998 stopped watching, none of that anymore.

    Edge is apparently a main character on a TV show called Haven, I've never seen it though

    I watched it live with no expectations or an understanding of how the match would be booked, in the moment I thoroughly enjoyed it! how many times in this era where fans are incredibly smarky that kayfabe itself would dictate our reactions and we begin to suspend our disbelief? it's an oxymoron to say it but pro-wrestling got real and what it has always meant to be! this whole needing wrestling to be "legitimate" makes little sense, am a big fan of Boxing and the UFC; if I want to see legitimate combat sports I'd watch Boxing or the UFC! I wouldn't complain about a 50 year old beating a former UFC world champion in a pro-wrestling contest we tune in to pro-wrestling for the feuds, characters, stories and spectacle etc

    Wrestlers shouldn't have to try to kill themselves doing an aerial attack in order to get a reaction, their characters should be strong and their charisma should be as such that they're able to control the audience reactions in the palm of their hands for example it could be with a simple roar, hulk up, middle finger or a "just bring it" that in ring presence and the way they carry themselves just has you in awe, the Goldberg character embodies those qualities and was very much alive at SurvivorSeries and he's probably among a few who could have beaten Lesnar in that fashion.

    Also, GB is going to be around for a while and when he was huge in WCW his matches were booked like this so it was the best way to elevate him and for Vince to make as much possible out of GB moving forward. My only criticism is that perhaps a rising star should have been Lesnar before Goldberg Squashed him, I mean after ending the streak the only person to benefit from Lesnars momentum over the last 4 years is Goldberg, it's the reason why there are a lack of big names in the WWE currently and they keep on relying on bringing back the likes of Jericho, Rock, Lesnar and GB because they don't invest in the talent they have

    Perfectly put @shaz619! It was the first time in a long while that I tuned in to WWE just to watch my favorite wrestler of all time (along with the Rock) back in the ring. Also loved how he got to do it in front of his family.

    Goldberg's a good guy he gets stick for leaving WWE but people don't realise that wrestling has never been his passion it was football, he came to wrestling when his footy career was ended through an injury so he took up wrestling when he was scouted by WCW alumni. When WCW folded he wasn't doing much for a couple of years, fans kept demanding he come to the WWE and the only reason he did was because he felt he had to you know one of those where you kinda just get out of the way, he also did it for the fans but just left after a year because he didn't want to be there, Goldberg is a PG guy and the other thing was the desire/passion wasn't there, he loves his fans don't get me wrong but he just didn't want to be there.

    This time round if you see his return he was so emotional, his promo was a shoot, all raw emotion, teary eyed and humbled by the response from fans. Goldberg certainly understands his value but am not sure he understands just how big he is and how over he was in his day, even in the last couple of years Vince released a Goldberg DVD and it's amongst their best selling ever. Yeah it was a nice moment for him and his family, watching the match I was so hyped man you feel his energy and intensity! I felt like I could squat 200kg and run at 200mph, that intensity and energy can really get you psyched, in the Gym I was thinking about it and I got an adrenaline boost, that power/intensity and aura are something else

    Cena is funny at times but his one dimensional character and 5 moves of Doom overshadows all the good work he does.

    The Bryan gimmick was one of the worst I have ever seen. One word chant can only take you so far. I am sure that guy can be better on the mic and is technically very good but was given a horrible gimmick by the WWE.

    CM Punk was amazing and hope he returns one day.

    5 moves of doom is an absolute myth and even his harshest critics mostly IWC feel like idiots/awkward chanting you can't wrestle or 5 moves of doom etc he has proved his exceptional ability to wrestle over the last 10 years or now, he improved significantly over the years despite being green when he started out. There's proof from his US open challenge on RAW in 2015/16 where he had arguably the best run of his career from an in-ring point of view. He has had MOTY contenders with the likes of Sami Zayn, Shawn Michaels, Umaga, Bray Wyatt, CM Punk, Cesaro, Kevin Owens, Russev, AJ Styles and countless others. His moveset has evolved and his record in big matches is phenomenal; it takes two to tango and his opponents have gone out of their way to praise his ability. My only criticism is that he's not the best seller. But yeah agree that his character is awful I hate it, as a heel rapper I loved that run and even in the current persona there are moments where I've really enjoyed his mic work, the recent feud with AJ Styles being one example.

    I never quiet got that, what's so non-sensical about a YES Chant in comparison to a "Do you smell what rock is cooking" here's the thing that underdog gimmick/YES movement went main-stream and I had not seen crowds go so crazy since the Attitude Era, he just connected in the same way Austin did with his 3:16 promo not that am putting the two personas on a level playing field but putting into perspective how over Bryan got and it lead to a famous title win at mania.

    You never really know because guys like Hogan, Warrior etc all had issues with the E but returned but I think Punk could be the first not to appear again mainly due to HHH who's still an evil, maniacal politician deep down. He even fired Punk on his wedding day and pulled sthick which would put Pakistan Cricket Politics to shame

    Agree, I have . I meant is there anything else with a similar genre.

    I thoroughly recommend Black Sails.

    Halfway through the most recent season and I actually cant believe how underrated this show and how little attention it gets. Absolutely fantastic, miles miles miles better than TWD and I'll actually go so far as to rank it up with Better Call Saul and Game of Thrones territory. Magnificent, if you have even a remote interest in TV you owe it to yourself to try it.

    I absolutely hated this season of Vikings with the whole Ragnar becoming a drug addict angle and the 'God' going around having sex with every woman in the village, it was so random and unnecessary to the show.

    Vikings was one of my favourite shows and I hope it goes back to its badassery and this new season seems promising so far. Ivar is truly Ragnar's son. I'm sure Ragnar will die when he returns back to England as per the lore.

    I agree that Last Kingdom is a good show

    It's brilliant, been watching it since it was first released given my intrigue with regards to their depiction of pirates and what they stand for not the ** stereotypes. The most recent season had a pretty heart breaking finale and moving forward it will be hard to watch but I understand why they did it given that they won't be stretching the narrative, they want to focus on quality and it also will inspire some interesting story lines and character development.

    Vikings is another show in the same vein as Black Sails, it's equally brilliant but gets little attention

    Vikings Season 4 part 2 is Spectacular, and beautiful. It is as if all the other seasons with their blood guts and bluster have been building to this deep emotionally charged season not that the previous ones weren't but this really gives you the feels. It was truly moving, only 2 episodes in.

    Excellent will be watching this tonight. I wasn't entirely sure how I would see new characters after Ragner, Lagertha, Floki etc but his sons are very interesting too.

    The cripple is the most intriguing because he's nuts in the first episode of part 2, Lagertha was doing a bit of MMA with her companion This season may be the best yet, I wonder how many more seasons Vikings will be renewed for; I think they have potential for a longer arcs and can stretch the show to about 8 seasons
