Game of Thrones, season 7

Setting aside all other advantages of this show (writing, characterization, refusal of stereotypes, setting...) it is actually a lot better than a. the books and b. the first season, especially now that;
- they have plucked up the courage and sense to do without unwarranted sex scenes.
- the plot moves steadily on towards the end, gaining focus and convergence (and white walkers and Arya Stark).

In short, it is a super-feelgood thing to watch all the Good Guys dear to your heart finally get together, all the while knowing in the back of your mind that Game of Thrones is not your average Spielberg movie and might not end with a "happily ever after".
