On HBO that's pretty close to true. Was reading how True Detective had to add the stripper scenes to up the tit quota.

In GOT
The Mountain is The Hound's brother right? That's not the same actor though is it?

I don't want to Google it just in case it spoils anything.

But years ago - in the scene where Sir Lloris fights The Mountain in a joust - that's not the same fellow that was destroying people in the latest episode I don't think. At least I can't remember him looking like that.

the format changes pretty soon for you, bigger over arching storylines for the season, with other cases thrown in. I'm up to date with it and it's still very watchable. i'm got love for Donna and Rachel in it.

in answer to your question -
He was originally played by guest star Conan Stevens and debuts in "Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things." Stevens was replaced by Ian Whyte, who had already appeared in the series in other roles, for the second season. In Season 4 he is portrayed by Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson.

Finished 'A Trip to Italy'

I loved the show, I wish I had a shit load of money and time to tour the country properly, stunning scenery, great looking food, amusing enough impressions.

Fargo
Top episode. The sequence in the snowstorm was great, even if the part with Molly getting shot was lifted straight out of Insomnia. No way she's dead, but it was an unexpected move nonetheless.
Shame to see Goldberg go so soon, would've preferred the other bloke to die, but I spose he wouldn't have been able to tell Malvo who sent them.
The fish was a bit wtf but I'm sure they'll come up with some explanation.
