    "I started watching GOT back in 2011. I'm not gonna lie, at first I didn't want to watch it because I'm not used to explicit scenes shown on tv but after my older brother recommended it to me, i GOT hooked (see what i did there), I judged too quickly! the storyline, actors, and cinematography will take you to the world of the characters and even though their are so many subplots, each of them are really interesting to me! I definitely recommend this series to anyone who wants to immerse themselves in adventure and fantasy."

    "Why is The Last Kingdom ranked so low on this list? It deserves to be on top! Not only doesit portray the medieval period realistically and poignantly, we also follow a strong protagonist who moves the story line beyond borders. Kudos to the captivating cinematography and breathtaking acting this tv show brings to its audience."

    "REIGN IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE! Seriously though, no one talks about it enough? Everytime I recommend my friends to watch it they would have no idea what i'm talking about, perhaps they're living in a rock?? Anyway, reign is the best, and i recommend it to anyone who loves a good tv series."

    "Seeing Donald Sutherland in this series reminds me of his character as the seething President Snow in The Hunger Games movies. Man, i can't take that image off my head. aside from that, it was really difficult to gather HD quality vids of this series on the web so thanks for this man."
