What Do You Do After the Finale?

When your favorite TV show comes to an end it can be a depressing time. The time and emotion you invested into these small-screen masterpieces have resulted in a great experience, but now the feeling of emptiness is here and there’s nothing on the horizon to fill the void.

Fortunately, it’s not all doom and gloom and whatever your favorite show was there’s a substitute to act as a kind of methadone treatment for your goggle-box addiction. In some cases, you might just be clinging on and will need to let go soon, but for others, the TV show substitute might be more or as entertaining as watching the original series. Here are some of the top shows and what you can do to remain in their world.

Celebrity Big Brother

With this series being so all encompassing and ending so recently, there may be many people feeling the burn of its demise. Although participants such as Stephen Bear, Ricky Norwood and Aubrey O’Day will be doing the rounds on the chat show sofas, it’s just not the same as the dynamics offered by this controversial show. For those suffering from withdrawal symptoms look no further than the Celebrity Big Brother slots game available at This colourful and immersive game combines the best elements of the TV show with the chance to win big money all for yourself. Just like in the broadcast CBB you’ll see various celebrities with very different personalities in a house together and filmed over a few weeks. The sounds, symbols, animations and music should make you forget that your favorite show won’t be around for a while! With a 200% bonus on your first deposit at bgo, a 100% deposit bonus at Guts Casino and up to 500 free spins at Bingo Extra, there’s plenty of incentive to re-enter the Big Brother house.

Game of Thrones

It will be a while yet before we can return to Westeros and see what Jon Snow is up to. You could relive the action by diving into the books, but if you’ve already expended that option and can’t stand waiting for the next book or installment of the TV show, you could try writing about it. Fanfiction refers to a genre of fiction that is written by fans featuring their favorite characters and it allows them to continue the story. Everyone has a book in them, but if you don’t believe in your writing abilities, you can always just read the contributions of others on sites like FanFiction. Although the contributors don’t possess the same story-telling expertise as G.R.R. Martin, this is a free and pleasurable way of joining the action until the show returns in the summer of 2017.

Breaking Bad

It’s been a while now since we enjoyed the adventures of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, but some may still be feeling the loss. Fortunately, there’s an easy fix for this one and it comes in the form of Better Call Saul. Before becoming Breaking Bad’s Saul Goodman, there was a young lawyer going by the name of Jimmy McGill and you can watch his moral erosion take place in this show. It’s not Breaking Bad 2, and for many it’s proven to be a little light in terms of plot development to maintain their interest, but if you stick with it you might be surprised at how good it is. Mike Ehrmantraut is another prominent Breaking Bad character to feature heavily in this spin-off series and others might show their faces in the near future. For true fans of the show, watching this one is a no-brainer.

  • Big Brother always held my interest. I found that you really got to know the contestants and I felt a bit sad when it was over.

  • I never heard of Fanfiction, but it is a great idea!

  • I am glad I do have a cable recorder box, so when I do get hooked on shows it is easy for me to watch them when I have the time.

  • I don’t get hooked on TV very often. Too many more important things in life. Lots of great shows…like The Walking Dead…are hard to ignore though. But as a rule..I try to focus my time on family fun.

  • I should have been watching Breaking Bad all this time. I often hear my co-workers having conversations about it.

  • I love to watch tv series, really like it when I can get them on Netflix and can binge watch the whole season in a few days. I love Scandal and some of the new shows look like they would be interesting. I find shows on Netflix and others that I didn’t get the channel before and can now see them.

  • I often invest a lot of time watching a certain TV series. I get so used to the show and then I do feel bad when it ends.

  • I do know Game of Thrones was very popular. I should have started watching it also.

  • Sometimes I am disappointed after Finales. Other times I am sad when a show ends.

  • I hear so many people at work talking about Breaking Bad. I wish I started watching it also.

  • (What Do You Do After the Finale?) I do miss watching Breaking Bad right now a lot. I kind of feel lost without it every week. I have started watching Better Call Saul too. I get caught up on that when I go and visit my son where he lives-

  • I used to watch Big Brother all the time. This year I have been quite busy so I did not get to view it. I was addicted to it though at one point!

  • I love watching Game of thrones and Breaking Bad!
