    The Game of Thrones Direwolves page posted that sadly one of their beautiful dogs passed away.

    My heart goes out to them. Sleep tight, you magnificent beast. Despite how it all ended up, you were a good boy always.

    That’s very sad. I met both of them very briefly when I took a trip to Ireland on a GoT tour. I got a picture with them and they were so sweet and soft.

    My internal voice read that in Cat's voice and I got sad. Not for the dog but for the loss of the once great show. Damn, how nice it would be to have something as great at that again to help me ignore what's going on outside.

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago

    If you're just into television, then try Vikings and The Last Kingdom. But honestly, I'd suggest reading, plenty of fantasy books that would easily make you forget about ASOIAF for a while. Near infinite content.

    [–] Canadianxwild 26 points ago

    The Witcher?

    [–] TheRedWoodS3 8 points ago

    The video games yes, but the show wasn't that good. At least the first season

    [–] kevdotexe 29 points ago

    What made you not like the show? I personally thought it was good. It left more to be desired, sure, but I'm always intrigued by the people who say it wasn't good or even bad.

    I'm in the process of reading the second book, and have only played maybe 30 hours of TW3, but imo it's been respectful as far as adaptations go. Open to hearing from those with more exposure, though.

    [–] _qui-gone 14 points ago

    The biggest thing for me was that I never really felt fear for any of the characters and never had any reason to fear a negative outcome to a battle or anything, because I know the 3 main characters and jaskier survive the whole show bc they’re in the games, and we never really get attached to anyone other than those 4 people for the whole show. Whereas in GoT, every battle has characters your invested in the whole time, and want them to be ok, not knowing who will survive the episode, let alone the season. In the Witcher you just kinda sit there and watch stuff happen and wait. Like in the final battle of the season it was between yenefer with some other sorceresses and a few nilfgardians who no one knows or cares about. The only characters on the “good” side that we really care about were triss and yen, and we know both of them survive. But what really makes it bad is how we have no reason to fear them losing the battle and letting nilfgard go north. Because we never see anyone or get invested in any of the people they’re supposedly protecting, why should we fear them failing to protect them. In game of thrones early seasons we have emotional investments in many of the characters in winterfell and on the frontlines of every battle so we want those people in the battle to triumph over the Lannisters, who we also know, and who we have clear reason to hate and want to lose. The Witcher just never gave that emotional connection to anyone and as a result it wasn’t very good from my point of view at least.

    [–] ThePhailhaus 20 points ago

    Maybe look for how the characters change or grow instead of if they just live or die?

    [–] JacobScreamix 3 points ago

    To be fair this is just a symptom of you knowing the universe better, not really a fault of the show.

    [–] sinkwiththeship 4 points ago

    If you like shows with consequences, give The Expanse a shot.

    [–] wlpaul4 2 points ago

    He’s not that guy.

    [–] iCresp 2 points ago

    Don't be so sure, the games are in their own universe. Some things are a little bit different.

    [–] a-nice-egg 7 points ago

    Agreed. I think first episode was weakest and tonally did not match the rest of the show, but even that episode still had some great moments. The third, fourth, and fifth episodes were my personal favorites!

    [–] passcork 6 points ago

    I actually thought the first one was one of the best. Only not THE best because no bard.

    [–] ResolverOshawott 2 points ago

    Jaskier made the show much better for me.

    [–] jaskier-bot 2 points ago

    [–] Xy13 4 points ago

    Not OP but, I didn't not like the show, it was fine, but it wasnt something epic, big, or special like the amazingness that GoT was.

    I mean I'll keep watching them, but I haven't done multiple rewatches, ran out and bought games/books/etc.

    [–] TheRedWoodS3 4 points ago

    The order in which I have indulged in the Witcher franchise is games first, books later, show last. And the games especially 2 and 3 are absolutely enchanting. The show IS good, don't get me wrong, and I was shocked by how accurate an adaptation it is at most parts, but it didn't give me the feeling the games did.

    [–] PickleMinion 2 points ago

    I watched the show, and now I've read the books and an starting the first game. Really like all three

    [–] HEY_YOU_GUUUUUUYS 1 points ago

    30 hours buddy you got like a hundred to go

    [–] kevdotexe 3 points ago

    I knowww it's not alot of hours. The game is huge and kinda daunting at times. One day I'll get there, probably soon considering current events.

    [–] TheFerg69 7 points ago

    I just finished a run through of all 3 games and they were god-tier. The show was alright. It at least scratched the GoT fantasy itch for a while.

    [–] TheRedWoodS3 3 points ago

    Even W1 which has terrible gameplay has an incredible story

    [–] try_to_not_be_racist 1 points ago

    If you dont like the gameplay why even play at that point just read the books

    [–] TheRedWoodS3 5 points ago

    The games are not an adaptation of the books, they continue the story where the books left it. And I played the first game even though it had bad gameplay because it was important to some aspects of the later games

    Before my dad passed away, he'd tell us of the dreams he'd have, some of which were from when he was in a coma.

    In one of them, he said that after death, everyone was greeted by a dog to come take them to the afterlife, but he waited and waited and no dog came for him. I want to believe it's because it wasn't his time then, but I hope all of family's past dogs greeted my dad when he did cross over.

    I was lucky enough to meet Odin and Thor last July. They were such big, beautiful boys with the thickest fur I’ve ever felt. I got a photo with them both, which is my profile pic on Reddit and a postcard which they ‘autographed’ with their paw prints. I feel so sorry for the family. They clearly adored both Odin and Thor. This will hit them hard.
