Game of Thrones Fans Spot a Huge Mistake Involving Jaime’s Hand

Game of Thrones Fans Spot a Huge Mistake Involving Jaime’s Hand The coffee cup blunder in this season of 'Game of Thrones' was just the first mistake fans have spotted as the series winds down.

There really is no better show to replace Game of Thrones than this one, mainly because if the inspiration behind it didn't exist, neither would Thrones . But even though it has more than its fair share of hairy moments, it doesn't take itself too seriously – the perfect wind-down after Thrones .

11 shows to watch now Game of Thrones has finished © BBC Politics, violence and some seriously impressive magic. But don't worry! There's loads of other great TV you can use to distract yourself from the screaming void inside your empty heart, some of which have clearly jumped on the Thrones bandwagon, while others walk a different line but are easily as good (if not better).

'Game Of Thrones' Creators Explain That Daenerys 'Mad Queen' Twist

'Game Of Thrones' Creators Explain That Daenerys 'Mad Queen' Twist The creators of 'Game of Thrones' have offered an explanation to Daenerys Targaryen's downfall into the 'Mad Queen' in episode five. WARNING: This article contains spoilers for episode five of 'Game of Thrones' season eight Anyone who's been paying attention to the barrage of not-so-subtle hints Game of Thrones has been throwing at us (via prophecies, foreshadowing and on-the-nose subtext), will have seen Daenerys Targaryen's descent into Mad Queen territory coming. But still.

The seventh season of Game of Thrones may have come to an end, but there's still plenty of amazing shows to watch before Christmas. In no particular order, here are the 11 most exciting TV shows of the remainder of 2017.

Now playing: Watch this: Game of Thrones season 8 finale: Our watch has ended. If you wish Game of Thrones had more magic and talking dragons -- and was a bit less horrifyingly violent -- Merlin is for you.

1. A battle for a Throne – Empire

Where: Fox / Amazon Prime / Channel 5

The Empire characters might not employ Valyrian steel swords and fire-breathing dragons to get what they want, but we have no doubt in our mind that they wouldn't hesitate to use either of those options if they became available.

This drama is all about Empire Entertainment, a hip-hop music and entertainment company that's up for grabs when CEO Lucious Lyon announces that he's looking to choose a successor among his three sons.

Cue backstabbing, manipulation and every dirty trick in the book.

Sound familiar?

2. Loads of gross stuff - American Gods

Where: Amazon Prime

Incest, castration, people being put into pies, there's all sorts of sick stuff going on in Game of Thrones. If you're missing that kind of thing we have a couple of pieces of advice for you.

Game Of Thrones Author George RR Martin Pours Water On Claims He's Finished The Books

Game Of Thrones Author George RR Martin Pours Water On Claims He's Finished The Books Game Of Thrones author George RR Martin has been forced to address claims he’s finished the final two books in the series and unfortunately, we’ve got bad news for anyone hoping to read them soon. 

How it's similar to Game of Thrones : Since there are magicians, there's that fantastical element. Also, when they enter into Fillory, the fictional land that's not-so How it's similar to Game of Thrones : The Lannisters' dysfunctional ass dynamic has NOTHING on the Gallaghers. Where to watch : Showtime

Game of Thrones has spent several years as a national sensation, winning awards, critical praise, and diehard fans along the way. While there was considerable angst over how the eighth and final season unfolded, it still dominated online discussion and scored its highest ratings ever. But the sad truth is

One: get help. Two, watch Amazon Prime's American Gods.

This is a show where a couple have sex, only for one of the participants to get gradually swallowed whole by the other person's vagina.

It's weird, violent and tons of fun. Just like Thrones, then.

3. Great cast – Black Mirror

Where: Netflix

Thrones is perhaps best known for its sprawling casts of colourful characters (okay, it's known for something else too, but we'll get to that)

But forget about the HBO epic for just a moment and treat yourself to some re-runs (or maybe you're a first-timer) of Black Mirror. Charlie Brooker's sci-fi anthology series is essentially one massive cautionary tale about technology and its ever-increasing role in all of our lives, and how it affects the human condition – and its become known for its stellar casts.

Previous alumni from the first four chapters include Doctor Who and Broadchurch star Jodie Whittaker, Get Out's Daniel Kaluuya and Game of Thrones' Jerome Flynn.

Lena Headey reportedly earned $69,000 a minute for her appearance on 'Game of Thrones' Season 8

Get invested in this show , and when Game of Thrones comes back, it’ll be like no time has passed at all. This one is all the way hard sci-fi, but it’s essentially Game of Thrones in space. Set in a future where humans have colonized the solar system, few series better capture the feeling of a society on

I need something to fill the emptiness of the next 11 months. We need a new show to fill the Game of Thrones -shaped hole in our lives. So tell us which show you'd recommend to Game of Thrones fans and why, and your submission could be featured in a future BuzzFeed article!

The upcoming season five features Fleabag and Sherlock actor Andrew Scott, Marvel's Anthony Mackie and the one and only Miley Cyrus.

Talk about varied.

4. The ins and outs of politics (without the crossbows, poison and wildfire) – Veep

Where: HBO / Sky / Now TV

One of Thrones' crowning jewels (arguably less so during the final season) was its focus on politics, establishing highly authentic power plays and allegiances, bringing together the schemers and the dreamers for a wild ride.

But if you found it all a bit too much at times, Veep is ready and waiting for you.

The multi-award-winning show is all about vice president Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and the daily grind in Washington.

It's funny, smart and it absolutely nails politics and what it means to work in the field.

Just what the doctor ordered after that Thrones finale.

5. Big budgets being spent on medieval nonsense featuring Ed Sheeran – The Bastard Executioner

Where: buy it on Amazon

At a cost of $10 million for the pilot and $2m per episode after that, The Bastard Executioner certainly had the ambition of Game of Thrones – though sadly not the staying power.

Watch: Game of Thrones cast 'disappointed' with season 8 Even the actors don't seem to like how this show is ending up.

Entertainment. Television. 9 Shows to Watch After Game of Thrones Ends. HBO has even (not surprisingly, considering it’s home to both) recommended Westworld as a companion to Game of Thrones , for its violence, power dynamics, powerful female characters and complex world of fantasy.

Well, it happened, the penultimate season of ' Game of Thrones ' has ended leaving us with nothing but the memories of incest, dragons and 30,000 thinkpieces about But we do like binge- watching TV, so here are a few shows to fill in the time until your next, inevitable re- watch of 'GOT' from the beginning.

Cancelled after just one season, there's still plenty for fans to enjoy here.

The story of a Welsh knight's revenge mission (one that sees him disguising himself as an executioner, hence the title), it's PACKED with violence, gore and more swords than you can shake a stick at (why are you shaking a stick at a sword? That's just silly).

Especially as, ridiculously, it also featured 'acting' from Ed Sheeran – what is it with this dude and medieval shows?

6. Blokes in hairy outfits with swords – Vikings

Where: Amazon Prime

Inspired by the sagas of actual early medieval Vikings – but don't let the history lesson element put you off (even if it is showing on the History Channel), Vikings features loads of blokes in hairy outfits, with hairy faces, tooling about on green hills and chucking swords at each other.

But, like Thrones, it also features powerful women. We'll let creator Michael Hirst explain:

"I wasn't really conscious of making Lagertha almost unique as a leading female character in a TV show.

But I think she is unique. I mean, she's a mother, a wife, and she kicks ass. And she's a wonderful role model, absolutely. Unfortunately, as a writer, I have to punish her again and again. So she's always losing everything. And I think that, for women, that's often the price.

"Certainly for a powerful woman, that's the price they pay for achieving anything. So every time you think she's actually achieved something, risen to the top, you think, 'Oh, things are going to be easy!' – no, they're not. They never are.

Game Of Thrones is over for the year! Why not watch Preacher, Fargo, Billions, Orange Is The New Black or something else to fill that TV craving? So if you're in need of something new to watch , let us offer some suggestions. We haven't plumped for shows that replicate the experience or style of

Email. Facebook. Whatsapp. Pinterest. Twitter. Advertisement. The penultimate season of Game of Thrones (GoT) has finished , setting things up nicely for the final season. Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait a while for that season to arrive on your TV screen.

"For women, I think then and now, the Dark Ages and now, there were just more problems. More issues, more things to solve, more complications to life. So I don't write the women differently, but I write them in the same way, so the women are as interesting as the men, and they don't just decorate the show."

7. Complex female characters in a literary setting – The Handmaid's Tale

Where: Sky / Now TV

Stylishly shot, powerfully acted and deeply disturbing, The Handmaid's Tale, based on the iconic Margaret Atwood book, is far darker than Game of Thrones and more disturbingly likely to actually happen (put it this way, there's more chance of women being apocalyptically oppressed than there is of a dragon appearing above your local Tesco).

If your favourite character in GoT is Cersei, Arya, Sansa, Brienne or even the "Shame, shame, shame" nun Septs Unella, there's plenty you'll enjoy about this.

8. If you enjoyed Starks vs Lannisters – The White Queen

Where: StarzPlay on Amazon Prime

Okay so it's Yorks vs Lancasters in The White Queen but seeing as George RR Martin was directly inspired by The White Queen's real-life subject matter (the Wars of the Roses) when writing A Song of Ice and Fire, we'd say the similarity between the names isn't a coincidence.

There really is no better show to replace Game of Thrones than this one, mainly because if the inspiration behind it didn't exist, neither would Thrones.

9. Magic, baby – The Magicians

Where: Syfy / 5Star

The clue's in the title. If the threat of the White Walkers, Melisandre's affiliation to the Lord of Light and big, fire-breathing dragons are your thing, look no further than The Magicians.

Our “ watch ” has ended! Unfortunately, much like our favorite characters in the hit HBO series, Game of Thrones is sadly coming to an end. Saying goodbye to our favorite show after eight seasons proves to be a difficult feat, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. As you stumble through reruns of GOT and

This show is all about the fantastical, the narrative following a group of young adults studying at a college for (yup, you guessed it) magicians. There they face a raft of supernatural challenges, from a Fairy Queen and her army to possession to absolutely loads of spell casting.

But even though it has more than its fair share of hairy moments, it doesn't take itself too seriously – the perfect wind down after Thrones.

10. Coming-of-age in a dangerous world – The Society

Where: Netflix

When we first meet the likes of Bran, Arya and Sansa, they are kids without any real life experience, governed under the watchful eye of their parents, Ned and Catelyn Stark (RIP).

But then Bran was pushed out of window by Jaime Lannister, Ned was executed, Joffrey essentially held Sansa captive in King's Landing and Arya went on the run. All of a sudden, the young Starks are forced to grow up (and fast), each of them confronted by a number of harrowing challenges.

In The Society, Netflix's latest YA offering, the teenagers of West Ham are thrown into similar turmoil. They return home after their school trip is cancelled to discover that the rest of the town has disappeared without a trace, and they are cut off from the rest of the world.

There is a brief moment of calm before the storm, and then all hell breaks loose as warring factions emerge, big decisions are made, and tragedy ensues.

It's like we never left the Seven Kingdoms.

11. Big internal character struggles – Barry

Where: HBO / Sky / Now TV

On the surface, Bill Hader's dark comedy doesn't sound like it has a lot in common with Thrones – he plays the titular character, an Afghanistan veteran turned hitman who accidentally joins an acting class in LA and finds himself reevaluating his entire life.

Like we said, not many parallels going on. But the inner conflict he wrestles with on a daily basis as he struggles to be a better person and make the right choices is something that was laced throughout Thrones.

From Jaime Lannister's relationship to abandon Brienne for Cersei to Jon's decision to betray his queen and murder Dany, both ask a lot of their characters, and just as we see the full effects of those choices in Thrones, Barry, too, will give you significant food for thought about the human condition.

'Game of Thrones' star Kit Harington checked himself into 'a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues'.

Sources told the publication that the ending of the show "really hit him hard." Harington has previously said that the show and its ending have taken a toll on his mental health. "The final day of shooting, I felt fine . . . I felt fine . . . I felt fine. . . Then I went to do my last shots and started hyperventilating a bit," he told Esquire in story published in April.
