Was thinking damn! There’s nothing to watch on Sundays any longer. Then I see The Last Watch. Loved the table cast reading and learned what a club sandwich means. I will miss this show.

You may want to look at Chernobyl on HBO, although it's not for the faint of heart. It is, according to most accounts (including many user reviews on IMDB by those who grew up in the Ukraine), a very accurate depiction of that tragedy.

Yeah, the promos for this show look pretty powerful.

The Last Watch was a wonderful way to end our investment in GOT. Absolutely brilliant.

Yes, the original audio is compressed, but when decoded to analog, the analog is not compressed. What it has are errors, which hopefully are not heard by the listener.

IOW, there's a distinction between data compression and dynamic range compression. DD and DTS don't compress the dynamic range, but they do compress the data.

putting aside everything else, the last few minutes was beautifully shot and the score by Ramin Djawadi was epic...the montage of the various Stark siblings heading out on their new adventures was great- Jon, Arya, Sansa (why wasn't Bran included in the montage!)...the shot of Sansa getting crowned Queen was especially gorgeous...I'm guessing the original title of GRRM's final book in the Ice and Fire series was a big clue- A Time for Wolves...I think over time people will appreciate the finale and the final season more...it was rushed and didn't feel as epic as I wanted but overall the show will stand the test of time as a truly great fantasy show

Djawadi really grew as a composer over the years of doing this show. No matter what music snobs who always pine for a John Williams type say, there's no doubt in my mind that Djawadi was a perfect person for this job.

John Williams has a much larger body of work and has created some of the most iconic scores in movie history- Star Wars, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, Jaws etc...Djawadi is amazing but lets not go comparing him to John Williams...Williams is a legend...Djawadi is the best TV composer ever in my opinion and his work on Westworld and Amazon's Jack Ryan sealed it for me...

I never compared the two specifically. It's just that there are those who chastise all composers who developed their craft in the computer age of scoring rather than pencil-and-paper. They see them all as Zimmer clones and miss out on some truly good, individualized work.

Considering Djwadi uses many live instruments mixed with tech it is really a shame. His work spans both movies and TV with people probably not knowing he did the score (until GoT). While Williams is a legend, GoT theme and music will be up there I think as far as “legendary” TV music.

I was kind of disappointed in The Last Watch. There was a lot of people talking about the challenges they had and how much they had to put into it, but not really all that much showing why that was so. Very, very light on details. I was hoping for a lot more about all the decisions they were made, what obstacles they faced and how they overcame them, showing the mood(s) on set, getting more into the thought processes as they occurred, etc. What we got instead was a handful of people making comments of how hard it was, how excited they were, and how they'd miss it...and we got to meet the food truck lady.

I thought the only really interesting part was the brief glimpse of the table read, and the guy who was an extra.

I thought I was the only one who felt this way. Granted, I've only watched the first hour thus far but I've found it to be pretty much a snore-fest.

I am inclined to agree. Although I didn't hate the special and found it occassionally engaging, I also found my attention flagging with distressing frequency.

Pretty much a summation of my thoughts as well .. in some ways, I guess I'm glad the show is over ..

Well you do have to save some for the physical release I’m sure we’ll get more one of these days that goes more in depth.

I wasn't going to say anything, but since it's out there, I agree. Two hours of pretty low calorie stuff. Wasn't terrible, but it didn't need two hours.

I haven't even watched the 2 hour documentary yet...seems like HBO just didn't want to see the flagship show end and wanted to put something else on related to the show...doesn't seem like anything all that amazing that couldn't have been put on the Blu-ray...I personally would have been much more interested in watching the GoT roundtable discussion featuring the cast (even ex-cast members like Sean Bean) which will be an exclusive feature on the Blu-ray

Correct. After DD and DTS are decoded, there is no dynamic range compression taking place either. After decoding, there is no compression left of any sort. What does remain is compression artifacts, which are hopefully not heard by the viewer.

This is not something to even joke about IMO. Fans can sometimes not realize that when you start making petitions, etc that it can reflect on the actors themselves as well. From what I have read elsewhere outside of a crazy schedule he was worried that he/they would let fans down. I’m sure the backlash of the final season hasn’t helped stress for him since much of it focused on him and fans have been very vocal about their dislike of the show. Some people take that to heart since it’s a reflection of their work and putting a few sentences of “hey the actors were good” never makes headlines.

That’s cool. I do wish him well. The guy has the world in the palm of his hand.
Fame is a tough thing to cope with if you’re not mentally tough enough.

But he has been outspoken regarding current events. He should stay focused on his career.
Personally, I’d cut him some more slack if he stayed away from American “issues.”
His Joffrey comparisons was not necessary. We watch these shows to escape reality.
I don’t want actors ‘breaking through the glass’ and giving their worldly opinions.
As the saying kinda’ goes, “Shut up and act.”

Fame is a tough thing to cope with if you’re not mentally tough enough.

Personally, I’d cut him some more slack if he stayed away from American “issues.”
His Joffrey comparisons was not necessary. We watch these shows to escape reality.
I don’t want actors ‘breaking through the glass’ and giving their worldly opinions.
As the saying kinda’ goes, “Shut up and act.”
I have become immune to actors who pontificate about political issues. Virtually none of them have the background or experience to vest them with any kind of credibility and most seem more to be currying favor with their likeminded friends in the Hollywood bubble than to state opinions, which would actually be helpful to the public at large.

Because actors' political positions mean nothing to me, I never let my reaction to them color my decision whether to watch their work. It works well. This way, I get to see a bunch of terrific performances by talented actors that I mighht otherwise miss and my digestion is improved.
