Lazy Sundays: Game of Thrones Withdrawal

Right now I’m between series and there’s nothing to watch on TV because there’s normally nothing to watch on TV but in summer it’s especially bad.  Game of Thrones is done and after talking about it at least once a week for ten weeks the withdrawal feelings are bad.  In addition to that The Walking Dead isn’t back for season six until two days before my birthday (it releases October 11).  And I can’t even content myself with watching re-runs from both series’ season fives because they’re not out on DVD yet.  Normally I’m not overly disappointed with television shows but since I’ve been cooped up in the house for a week I’m getting a little TV-obsessed.  No, it’s not healthy and yes, I need to get out a little more.

In regards to the severe Game of Thrones withdrawal symptoms, I’m also very worried about book 6, The Winds of Winter because I know it isn’t coming out this year.  (I believe Martin’s publisher announced something to that effect.)  I really, really hope that Martin does get to finish the series eventually because although the TV show is great, I definitely prefer the books in a lot of ways.

Well, I’m just going to have to deal with my extremely first world problems until February 2016 when the Season 5 DVD comes out.  In the meantime I’m going to work on trying to get outside now that I’m somewhat healed up and maybe start gently working out again.  Maybe I can start the House of Cards TV series, which comes highly recommended from my equally geeky coworker.

How was your Sunday?

        It’s really good, but it doesn’t necessarily have a really gripping story until episode 6/7 or so. I mean, the previous episodes are solid and the stunt work is spectular. But it hits a certain mythic point midway.
