2019 was arguably the best year ever for genre television - so much so, that it was virtually impossible to watch everything. While you probably caught most of the big releases, we're willing to bet there were a few shows that slipped through the cracks.

With that in mind, here are the best sci-fi, fantasy and comic-book themed TV shows from the past 12 months. (And yes, we're including the finale season of Game of Thrones - it wasn't that bad!)

The Game of Thrones series has had a plagued year. First there were the dismal reviews for its final season, then the Naomi Watts-fronted spin-off that was cancelled at the last minute. But there's finally some good news for Thrones fans.

Series author George R.R. Martin has confirmed in a blog that a new series called House of the Dragon is on its way. Here's everything we know so far.

In the hallowed words of Theon Greyjoy: "What is dead may never die."

Scientists are among the millions of die-hard Game of Thrones fans digesting the show’s finale. Even in this fantasy world, geological processes like tectonic plate movement, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions would have built the mountains, carved the rivers and created vast oceans.

Ask not for whom the game thrones; it thrones for thee. This Monday Game of Thrones, the television show that invented death, finally ends. Now you can move on, at least until the prequel starts. What should you watch next to scratch that itch? It depends on what you’ll miss about Thrones.

One more episode of Game of Thrones left. A lot of people are gonna have some postpartum feelings. I’m going to feel relieved. I’ve spent eight years deciding not to watch our decade’s defining TV show. For a while I felt like an outcast, like Jon Snow, or Arya Stark, or Theon Greyjoy, or Tyrion Lannister. OK so I read the books. But you don’t have to go that far to beat GoT FOMO.

By now, everyone will be across the glaring "error" in the most recent episode of Game of Thrones. In case you missed it (and I'm not sure how given I've never watched a single episode of the show and I know about it!), someone left a Starbucks coffee cup in front of Dany during the Battle of Winterfell celebration. But was it really an accident? I'm not convinced.

The traumatic, stressful nature of Game of Thrones means it is best “enjoyed” with a drink in hand. If you want to go the themed route, you can choose from Cersei-approved wine or the countless GoT-themed potables — but the most recent beverage making a buzz in Westeros is giant’s milk.

(If you are at all sensitive to spoilers and have not seen last week’s episode, turn away now.)

But don't offer yourself up to the Many Faced God just yet - we've discovered a trick that will let you watch the whole thing on Foxtel for free. No, really.

With a friend in tow, it's possible to watch the series for as little as $12.50. With a little judicious timing, you can even watch the whole thing for free! Here's how it's done.

I’m a big fan of gambling. I’m not one to lose massive amounts of money playing poker in Vegas, but I do love March Madness brackets, fantasy sports, and really anything else where I can wager a small amount of cash in order to win bracing rights over my friends, which is why I’ve been on the hunt for some ways to enhance Game of Thrones this season with a few friendly wagers.

After two long years, it's finally happening: on April 14, the eighth and final season of HBO's award-winning fantasy series Game Of Thrones will premiere around the world. In Australia, the only "official" way to watch Game Of Thrones concurrently with the US is through Foxtel.

However, there are a few options available that don't require you to sign up to a costly pay TV subscription - some of which are technically legal. Here are all the ways to watch Game Of Thrones Season 8 in Australia.
