What to watch when you've finished "Game of Thrones" season 5Daenerys and pals have departed our screens for another year. Here are our picks of the TV shows and movies to try next.
Game of Thrones is over for another year. If you're missing the punishing world of Westerhoff, here are our pics of what to try next. Game of Thrones draws inspiration from real moments in history, so why not settle in with a drama based around actual characters and events. Six part British drama Wolf Hall recounts the rise to power of Thomas Cromwell in the courts of Henry VIII. [APPLAUSE] Another blend of history and fantasy, the screen. 2004's Troy was written by David Beneoff. The cocreater and showrunner of Game of Thrones. This ancient epic is far from flawless. But has the swords and grandeur to suit anyone pining for the adventures Denaris and pals. Will you go to war with me, Brother? If you like Game of Thrones unpredictable plots and frequent shocking surprises, you might like the twist filled sci-fi show the Outer Limits. [MUSIC] Which comes in either original 1960s or 90s reboot flavors. As an added bonus, the first episode of the reboot, The Sand Kings, is based on a short story by George RR Martin. [INAUDIBLE] Arguably the finest creation in HBO's impressive stable of shows, the Sopranos is pure polished drama. It may focus on New Jersey mobsters, rather than dragons and White Walkers. But at it's core this is still a story of warring families and strange loyalties. Game of Thrones plays on a genera's expectations by sometimes mixing a fantasy story and a world that cruel and bitterly down to earth. The unsettling and tragic Pan's Labyrinth plays with the same ideas placing a young girls exploration of a fantastical realm within the brutal world of post Civil War Spain. That should be enough to tie you over for now, but can you think of any other shows that would be perfect for a Game Of Thrones fan? Let us know and happy viewing.
