Re: Game of Thrones....

I'm still not sure if Jon was processing the bigger picture prior to Dany laying it out for him. Was he so freaked out that he was banging his Auntie that he somehow didn't grasp his claim to the throne? That wasn't my impression. Sam was pretty clear that he was the "rightful heir".

Bosch is the best cop show since The Wire. I will not argue this.
It ran concurrently to The Wire so I will grant you "since", but The Shield was every bit as good as The Wire.

I have not watched Bosch but will give it a whirl.

Passing over Issac Bruce (again) is a damn shame. 1000+ rec, 15,000+ yds rec, 91 TD, GW TD in a Super Bowl, 4 Pro Bowls. His crimes being he didn't seek out the media and Chris Berman never gave him a memorable nickname. Next year likely his last shot as big "stars" start coming due in 2021.
