We know you’re still salivating over the last scene of the latest Game of Thrones episode. It’s fiery, right? Aren’t you glad that Daenerys Targaryen is fire-proof, likes to eliminate her enemies through burning (with them) and of course, does not like to wear fire-retardant clothes (she should consider getting some since she burns herself quite often, unless modesty is not the priority).

If you’re thinking how life can go on when Game of Thrones is finished for this season, fret not, here are 3 shows that aim to kill your social life.

1. The Crown

The Crown depicts the life story of Queen Elizabeth II from childhood to coronation to her reign. It’s always tough to portray a living person so everyone is keeping a lookout for Claire Foy’s performance. Oh well, who doesn’t love a dramatized account of the British royal family

Lines from the show

Prince Philip: Are you my wife or my queen?

Queen Elizabeth: I’m both

Prince Philip: I want to be married to my wife

Queen Elizabeth I am both and a strong man will be able to kneel to both

Prince Philip: I will not kneel before my wife

Queen Elizabeth Your wife is not asking you to

Prince Philip: But my Queen commands me.

Queen Elizabeth Yes!

Prince Philip: I beg you make an exception for me

Queen Elizabeth No!

2. Billions

We all remember Agent Brody (Damian Lewis) from Homeland. In Billions, Damian Lewis will morph into a corrupt hedge fund manager, Bobby Axelrod, who is constantly trying to outsmart U.S. attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti).

Lines from the show

A good matador doesn’t kill a fresh bull. You wait until he’s been stuck a few times.

3. War and Peace

Leo Tolstoy’s famous novel has been adapted numerous times and BBC has taken up this challenge in the form of a six-part mini-series. Marvel at the costumes while you sip your vodka.

Lines from the show

Everything ends in death, everything. Death is terrible

In the shadow of war, can young lives shine?
