Dang! I must not be reading the same articles as you but yeah, I can see that. He's appealing in a different way to me. Not gonna go there though...not in public anyway.
I'm still in. I'm sure I'll find some other series to console myself with, rewatch the original Upstairs Downstairs, something. I can still appreciate the acting, the production including locations, set design, costuming, all the technical stuff especially CGI dragons, casting, everybody down to the drivers and catering. It was a massive massive undertaking even if we did get shorted on writing and season length, there's still so much to appreciate and love.
Maybe we'll still get a surprise or two tonight. Maybe more like Bullwinkle saying "watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat!" and then it will make no sense and we'll all be able to bitch and moan about that for a few days.
Someone will maybe have to help me with this, I've been trying to find the article or post here about it - wasn't there some talk of an older Brit actress being cast to show up in the finale? I want to say this was spoken of a couple of years ago, so it wasn't in context of the wonderful all hail Dame Diana Rigg as Oleanna. Maybe I am confusing another show with this but I'm sure it was GoT. Oh well.
