Are you a fan of the Games of Thrones television series? I know a lot of you are because it is a very popular show.  

My husband is more of a fan than I am. He has read some of the books but I haven't yet so I have no idea if this tv series stays true to the books or not. 

Anyway, I did enjoy season 7. It isn't my favourite season but I still enjoyed it and find it entertaining and so much goes on in the series that it does get you to keep watching.  The battles were fantastic, the story great and like I said there is so much going on that you have to watch every single episode.

I know my husband and I will watch the series so far again in the future.  Only problem now is we have to wait until 2019 (?) for season 8th.

I give this 4 out of 5.


Game of Thrones:The Complete Seventh Season is now available to purchase online and in stores near you.

Catch up on the show that The Wall Street Journal calls “a spectacularly appealing enterprise,” when The Deuce is available for Digital Download on November 27, 2017 and on Blu-RayTM and DVD February 13, 2018. Set during the early 1970s in New York City's Times Square, The Deuce, starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal, gives viewers an up-close look at the gritty world of sex and crime, as the porn industry begins its climb to legitimacy, cultural permanence, and billion-dollar profitability. 

This eight-episode series, which has a 93% Certified Fresh rating from Rotten Tomatoes, is  “Vibrant…relentlessly interesting.” (The New York Times). The DVD and Blu-RayTM include exciting bonus content including exclusive audio commentaries from the cast and crew, including James Franco (Oscar®  nominee for  127 Hours), Maggie Gyllenhaal (Oscar®  nominee for  Crazy Heart), and David Simon (The Wire, Treme, Show Me a Hero), cast interviews on this unique period in history, and more. The Blu-rayTM and DVD release also include a free Digital Download copy.

MY THOUGHTS

I admit I had never even heard of this show prior to receiving a digital copy of the first season but this show sounded interesting so I  decided to give this show a chance even though it isn't something I would watch on tv. 

I did enjoy The Deuce season one.  It is very entertaining.  The cast does a fantastic job and I admit that I was hooked into this show from the very beginning.  

I am giving The Deuce season one a 4 out of 5.
