Topic: Off-topic / So I finished watching Game of Thrones

Depends what side of the show you’re into.

In order of decreasing relevancy -


If you’re into the kind of setting of the show (the medieval feel and what not) then there’s “Vikings”. It looks like a tacky attempt by the History channel to make a drama (and a lot of people overlooked it for that), but it is surprisingly good. Season 2 was also very political and felt very much like a discount Game of Thrones.

The best all rounder I can think of is “The Borgias”, which was an incredible historical drama from Showtime. Not quite medieval, but early renaissance so it’s not too dissimilar. It’s sort of historical, but liberal with the facts so it can tell a great story. LOTS of sex, war and political games. Highly recommend it. It is a little slow at times though, but I’d recommend pushing through. Also, Jeremy Irons is fucking great.

“The Tudors” was pretty good too. I only saw the first season so I can’t really comment on the whole thing, but it’s another historical drama (I guess mid-renaissance, slightly after Borgias is set but in England) that focuses on the stuff that makes good television. Also, Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell in GoT, is in season 1 & 2.


If you’re into the show purely because of political intrigue, then “House of Cards” is a great way to go. I loved the show, but some of the things that happen just seem so far-fetched that it at times ruined the immersion. But Kevin Spacey does such a great job, you do feel really invested in his story.

“Boardwalk Empire” is another great one for politics. A lot of backroom dealing, a lot of crime, and of course lots of sex and violence. The setting (Prohibition) is really interesting too and was one of the things the shows captured brilliantly. Characters are great, feel a lot more fleshed out than the other historical dramas. Steve Buscemi is fucking fantastic.


“Lost” is probably the best show out there for character development. I’ve seen a lot of great television, but Lost was the most committed I’ve ever been to a show and it’s characters. I sat through some of the most fucking ridiculous story arcs you could think of with Lost, but enjoyed it because I just wanted to see what happened to the characters. It really says something about a show when everything else is utter shit, but its strong point is enough to undo all other wrongs. Still one of my favourite shows of all time.

“The Wire” is great too. It’s quite political (a government race plays a big part in season 4) but it’s mostly focused on crime, so it’s not really all that relevant to GoT. But the characters are fantastic, and it has Aidan Gillen (in season 4) who plays Littlefinger in GoT, so that’s cool.


Hope you find something, because there’s no hope for me :(

Hey, this actually isnt THAT bad of an idea.

It would help aganist spam/excessive shitposting!!!..

I would up it to 5, maybe even 10 threads thought. And you can still post to your hearts content.

Yeah you shitpost about 10 threads a day on average, so makes sense you’d want the ceiling raised.

I dont even make threads that much.

If anything I am more of a poster. Especially right now, that I have a LOT of threads to post in due to my hiatus…

You better not start necro’ing threads that were made while you were gone.

Topic: Off-topic / So, I read somewhere that its possible to make money off Youtube videos...

All the profits are determined by ad revenue.

When Gangnam Style hit 1,000,000,000 views, it had made about $875,000 in ad revenue.

PewDiePie makes $4M a year in YouTube ad revenue, he has 27M subscribers or something and makes a shitload of content.

The top (determined by number of subscribers) 1000 YouTube channels make an average of $23,000 a month.

The top 500 YouTube channels produce an average of 884,000 monthly views and have 35,000 subscribers.

So you’ve got a long way to go before you start earning some real ca$h.

Of all the milestone threads I’ve read and complained about, this is by far the best.

This was actually a really nice thread idea. 10,000th post (or 10,001st cuz of FIFA) or not, it’s still wonderful.

Topic: Off-topic / Israel and Palestine

Israel needs to give Palestine the territory it asks for and actually work towards a two state solution. They’re not asking for much, and it’s no skin off Israel’s back. They have absolutely no need for the territory, since the territory claimed is of Muslim majority. Israel’s not giving it back on principle.

Too many Israel apologists out there.

Niceman is making fun of gabidou in hopes that we’ll stop making fun of him.

You know you’re the only one who gives a shit.
Sure, everyone thinks im an ass, but thats the whole “gist” of my name.
And I dont respond seriously (anymore) to stupid/troll comments.


I’ll just ignore some people who like picking on a retarded white 13 year old. You won. You beat me in a battle of wits. A battle of wits that have no meaning but to make another person angry for no reason. I have gotten better recently, but its only these threads and some other posters that like picking on a kid. I don’t care if a useless OTer is better than me, like that makes sense. Please see this and say, “Ok.” My random outburst to show my side of comedy was from my opinion. Anybody who hates me so much that when I am in the fu­­cking mood that I am never in now when I post and attack for no reason, leave me the f­uc­k alone, you nasty trolls.

I posted that atleast 10 months ago
Why the hell does does anyone care about that?

I saw that.
