no opinion.i haven't seen any america series

What series do you think this chat is about? What's your favourite TV show and why?

This chat is about GOT (Game of Thrones) TV Series, one of the greatest TV Shows of all time in 4 years with 9.9 ratings on TV Series websites. Anyway, this Game of Thrones is one of my very favorite TV Show, because it has very great long stories, the sequel of episodes is very well organized, consistent and connected. Every time, this show motivate the curiosity to watch again and again until the end of seasons 8. It has very strong attractions to the audience with various kinds of feelings, such as happiness, sadness, tragedy, politics, sex and a lot other more I could describe. Anyway, this show is very well done and I like it!

I think is about Games of Trones. I don't have an opinion about this series because I have never watched it because it's not my type of series. I prefer other than this.

The Game of Thrones
It has a good start, with amazing continue and disappointing final but i love it. After watching GOT i watched Friends. It's incredible with lovely character and i'm watching Shameless now

Dear Team,
I think in Task2, page3, the most logical answer is the third one.The suggested first one, for some reasons, doesn't seem to be the more correct. Am I right or not?Thanks again...

Hello nikoslado

I agree that this one is a little tricky, but I think the first option is the best one. For one thing, the man says nearly exactly the same thing (the fifth time he speaks), whereas he himself doesn't say anything that clearly supports either of the other options. He can't remember the name of one character, but that is different from the third answer option.

Does that make sense?

All the best

I don't watch Game of thrones. I don't really know what it's all about.

I love watching the series with actors that are portraying their character in all possible ways where we can see different shades of each and evey character in a series another thing which i think is important is the plot of story and the amount of time it takes to develop your interest in it. I must say that i love watching korean drama series because of their flawless acting and the attachment we feel with characters due to their brilliant acting everything seems to look so much real and we start to feel the same emotions as the actors feel.

Why do the two guys use the word "series" instead" of "season"?
