What to pay attention to when the Game of Thrones ends
Don’t ask who the game is; it’s your throne. This weekend’s “Game of Thrones”, invented the death of the TV show, is finally over. Now you can move on, at least until the start of the prequel. What should you pay attention to? It depends on your expectations of power.
Destroy robots, Mr. Robot, House of Cards and Americans create tensions in dual life, secrets, and violence. Six Feet Under kills one person per episode. The walking dead put their characters under hell and then resurrected them to evil. The crown dramatized the pressure of the royal family. Orange is the new black to follow a huge ensemble actor, letting you sympathize with the villains. Our Lady of Jenny (also coming to an end) uses her hands to fight the shocking revelation. You can gain power through Lost, Rome, Heroes, Tudors, Borgias, Westworld, Wolf Hall, The Last Kingdom, True Blood, American Gods, Outlander, Downton Abbey, Boardwalk Empire or The Wire. Here’s what Lifehacker employees recommend for your next visit, and why.
A.A. Newton, contributor: Deadwood
Have you missed the complex, embarrassing dialogue, the overwhelming severity and the semi-historical accurate political manipulation of the early Game of Thrones? Then, Deadwood is for you. Based on real-life Deadwood, South Dakota – and historical figures living there – the show follows Deadwood from a crumbling mining camp to a real town. It is full of curiosity, violence, power struggles and gender stances, as well as the old-age racism and misogy that people like to defend for history – just like the Game of Thrones!
Video producer Abu Zafar: Medici: Master of Florence
Do you want more political conspiracy and dynasty confrontation? Do you miss Rob Stark? Netci’s Medici: The Florence Masters is the best choice. Created in Florence in the 15th century, this historical drama tells the test and suffering of one of the wealthiest and most influential families of the Italian Renaissance. The first season’s star, Rob Stark, was the ruthless and effective leader of the Medici family, Cosimo de Medici. The second season focuses on the most famous Medicis, Lorenzo Magnificent. The show is indeed full of freedom of historical facts. However, the true history of Medicis is full of murder, betrayal, politics and taboo love, all of which exist and explain on the show.
Virginia K. Smith, Executive Editor: The Sopranos
This has nothing to do with the “Game of Thrones”, but revisiting the “black belt family” is not a bad moment. Especially if you watch it the way I am, it is to make a theme night every time you watch. There is some red wine on the deck, as well as a plate of meat/olive/GABAGOOL or pasta and meatballs or Italian sandwiches, or any other red sauce-style meal approved by Artie Buco. When you look at Tony doing the same thing, pushing the cured meat onto your face is a very satisfying way, and I won’t check or explain too much.
Food Editor Claire Lower: I think you should leave
Give up watching high-budget soap operas, just carnival I think you should leave, this is the most enjoyable and ridiculous sketch collection I have seen for a long time. Whenever I need pure, stupid escapism, I will put it on top and neatly package it in a 16-minute episode. I have seen it four times now. Episode 5 – An Acura – is my favorite.
David Murphy, Technical Editor: Chef’s Table and Nailed It
I will make a complete 180 and extract myself a bit from the fantasy world. This means it’s time to revisit Netflix’s greatest show, Chef’s Table, or a new street food spin-off. I hope they show an elegant, slow-motion 4K lens, of course, someone pulls the hot dog out of the hot tub of the street cart and sets it up for some cute Mozart music.
But, am I kidding? I want to watch Nailed It Season 3 because it brings me happiness. Nicole Byer’s passion for Wes is exactly what I need now because my entire Thone All-Star team is dead. sigh.
Financial writer Lisa Rowan: Killing Eve
I have never entered a Game of Thrones because I am too busy watching Americans, Orphan Black, Mr. Robot, and almost all programs that need to increase the brightness of the TV. If you just want your screen to leave alone for a while, then put on the eve of killing, this is a surprisingly interesting spy and spy thriller, staring at Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer. Maybe Game of Thrones has a higher body size, but I believe you will adapt to the environment. As the second season is coming to an end, you have enough time to catch up.
Nick Douglas, screenwriter: Borgen and it is heavy
I have not read power, but read books because I am an intellectual. And my favorite part is watching everyone compete for the position – my favorite characters are Varys and Littlefinger. I don’t need sex or violence, I need more dexterity.
This is exactly what you got in the previous episodes of Borgen, Denmark’s West Wing. Like the West Wing, this series also applies to this week’s issues and family dramas, but it is first and foremost a power struggle to control the Danish Parliament, which is run on a multiparty system that you want to view… Wikipedia.
But if you don’t want to read the subtitles, you can try the thick parts of the British predecessor Veep, which is more sensitive, more energetic, and full of people (although metaphorically) betray each other in order to lead in the government.
Meghan Walbert, contributing writer: Peaky Blinders
If you are not a fan, I am the one who wrote “The Last Season of How to Survive Game of Thrones”, so you may not want my opinion. Instead, I asked a real Game of Thrones fan (my husband) who immediately suggested another show I had never seen before: Peaky Blinders. IMDb told me that this is a 1919 gangster family epic collection in Birmingham, England, focusing on a gang that sews razor blades on the peak of the hat. “My husband described its appeal in this way:” The twists and turns, it has the violent aspect of Game of Thrones, some people really enter, the roller coaster relationship, it is dirty and dirty, a great accent. ”
Heather Haas, Creative Producer: Song of Ice and Fire Audiobooks
My advice is for those emotional people who are not ready to let go. For those of us who entered the final episode, we dragged our nails and popped out audio books. The narrative is great, each of the five books is between 30-50 hours. In addition, in the book, you really enter the mind of each character in a way that you can’t watch.
Watch the behind-the-scenes story of each episode of HBO between listening. This should keep us busy, and if we can save an hour every Sunday night, we might extend it for years.
After that, you can watch every movie that has ever appeared in any character. Danielis: I am in front of you. Sansa: X-Men: Apocalypse. Hound: Hot blur. Alex: Fallen. Cersei: 300. Missandei: Anger 7. Jon Snow: Youth Will. Yola: Tomb Raider. Tyrion: X-Men: The days ahead. Brien: The Force Awakens. Gendry: Skin. Ned Stark: Lord of the Rings. Bran: Awakening.
When you don’t have any Game of Thrones-related things to spend, it’s time to continue your life, lie on your bed and stare at your ceiling to listen to this.
Senior video producer Joel Kahn: Barry
If you need to watch something after Game of Thrones, why is HBO itself not placed directly in its calendar? Of course, this is Barry (even a 30-minute comedy film shot in Los Angeles) that will satisfy your desire for Game of Thrones. Citing another role from Bill Harder, Barry has everything: shocking death, bloodthirsty warlords, complex good and evil, and dark humor. Plus Henry Winkler!
