    Started rewatching the series. Just finished season 4. I think I'll stop there and pretend it just ends with Arrya, Tyrion, and Varys sailing away forever. What a great show.

      @Fr Kd Season 5 fails with Dorne and Jaime, plus you start to see Tyrions dialogue get flatter, though in that season you can at least blame the drinking and that he’s given up on life for the first half of the season. S5 also treats Sansa as a punching bag.
      S6 also has lots of rough areas within it, but how it ends feels better than S4 in my opinion. Battle of the Bastards is entertaining and ends with Jon & Sansa taking Winterfell back. Dany is finally sailing for Westeros. Cersei blows up a lot of characters and part of the city. Arya’s storyline falls flat in S6, as well as Theon, and Bran’s storyline has the tear jerker with Hodor, but they kill Summer off so quickly without emotion and since we don’t see him in S5 his training with the three eyed raven feels rushed and not earned

      Seasons 1-4 are peak television. Seasons 5-6 are good, but clearly a step down from the first 4. Season 7 is bad, but at least rewatchable (though I don’t recommend, stop at S6).
      Season 8 for me isn’t even rewatchable. I tried once and didn’t even get halfway through the first episode, it’s an open wound forever.

    What maddens me is that the story was always grounded in political truths: a ruler cannot be strong if succession is not assured, which is why Dany was targeted by assassins and Joffrey's illegitimacy mattered. Suddenly a Targaeryan with a legitimate claim on the throne can be banished on a promise not to come back and contest things and a king can be appointed who can never produce a dynasty - guaranteeing the civil war will start again when Bran dies. Nice one 👍

      I don't think this is established in the show verbally, so it doesn't necessarily excuse this. But I always thought that the succession after Bran and beyond would be a kind of Witan, which, although often electing the eldest (or any son) of the previous King, was able to elect any eligible King, it doesn't necessarily preclude a civil war but nor does a straight succession truly if there are multiple sons

      @INTpleb it doesn't even have to be clever. Jon is the male heir. He technically killed Dany who was a usurper since the rightful heir Jon was still alive. He broke no laws by killing her and should've immediately been crowned king.

      @R Vera 100% legacy. It made no sense for 2 Starks to rule the north and south, and the south to have an impotent king that couldn't produce heirs. That leads to warfare and why a Queen bearing sons was always so important. Daughters weren't ideal, but they could reign if all else failed and preserve peace. Jon and Dany would have been able to unite both the north and south with their bloodlines, but Jon and Sansa/Arya would have achieved the same result if Dany was destined to die. So many viable and interesting options but they went with Bran the Boring... -.-

      I’ve been reading up a lot on the Wars of the Roses… which GoT is kinda based on (dynastic wars due to crisis in succession). Problem for a TV show is its theme doesn’t conclude… the wheel never breaks! And the writers had no way of imagining a way out of that conundrum. Same with George M. should Dany rule? Why? Should jon? Why? The only conclusion to war is legacy. Which is why Return of the King ending was so boring.

    • INTpleb

      Dude, same and well said. It's pointless and stupid to have a Stark on one throne and a Stark on the other. The point? Especially when one can't breed wtf... The best way to fix that would be to have the actual classic hero (Jon Snow) with the legitimate claim to the throne defeat the Night King, saving all mankind, and having the stealth assassin (Arya Stark) or the trusted hand (Tyrion) take out the mad queen in one of their clever fashions. This would leave Jon open to taking the reigns alongside his cousin Sansa, uniting the entire continent of wildings, northerners, and southern Targaryen loyalists. If the eunuch army got their panties in a twist, then Melisandre could have used Jon's kings blood to awaken one of the stone dragons on Dragonstone, easily wiping out the foreign threat. Uniting the Stark and Targaryen houses is what will bring stability and peace to the entire realm. Literally everyone but the "writers" knew this, but I guess subverting expectations gave them a bigger boner than writing a cohesive and satisfying story that dozens of people dedicated over a decade of their lives to create.

    Being bad is one thing. But being so incredibly awful that it actually manages to ruin all the good seasons that came before it, is almost impressive.
    I loved the show before season 8 (And yes, I know S7 was flawed). But after the ending I haven't been interested in rewatching a single episode, and actually gave my DVD's away in a charity shop. They destroyed the entire show with this ending. I can think of no other show that has ever achieved that.

    The story of the rise and fall of GoT is like a Greek tragedy. It was at one point the most fucking incredible show to have existed, that had the biggest fanbase in the world who were obsessed with endless theories about how it would end. Wherever you went, GoT would come up in conversation as casually as football. It was a phenomenon, lightning in a bottle. It was arguably the biggest pop culture touchstone of the 2010`s.
    And then season 8 happened.
    In just a handful of episodes they managed to completely crumble the towering monolith they had built. GoT was now a joke, and will forever be remembered as thus. It was so bad it made us question if the show was ever really good from the get go. And if was all because of the staggering hubris of the show's creators and the laziness of the original author.
    Even if it had stuck the landing in a bumpy way, the show still would have been remembered as an amazing achievement. But they didn't so much land, as more like crash to earth and torch the entire runway.
    Thus it will remain as a cautionary tale to all those who want to know how not to finish a series.

      @Fun Size Yes I agree, even George Martin said they were rushing the show in season 8. Probably because they had another film to produce. I agree about that part, but people are also forgetting to give credit to the hundreds of actors, artists, crew, and people before season 8, at least give them the credit they deserve. The whole Game of Thrones film doesn't have to be scrapped because of a final episode issue. Its unsettling, but perhaps there is ways to make it up in the next seasons. However I don't want them to take away the very thing that made Game of Thrones Unique, which is its Historical representation of a completely fictional story, with many realistic aspects that you can find in history from Ancient times to Medieval times. The last thing, which is the true humaneness of all the characters makes it unlike any other show, if they take that away, it will not be Game of Thrones, it will just be another Marvel style representation of a medieval story. I like the story for what other films don't have, that depth and complexity.. The new film is showing High Renaissance costumes when the first of the show represented Greek style costumes how could that happen? Why does the new film seem so much more mythical and less representational? As George said before, he didnt want something so over whelmed by magic that is takes away the humanness too it, and he wanted to continue to represent historical aspects to it as we could delve into the raw truth of what it might have been like back then, from a whole new stand point, a story never told before. Only someone who knows history like him could have ever meshed those things together so well as he did. This is where I feel the new films are going to fail as I mentioned before about costuming and CGI use, as well as the dragons look less realistic.

      @brittany ritenour but it wasn't just one episode, it was the entirety of the eighth season. The writers couldn't have made it more obvious they were sick of the show. Half of the events only happened because the characters were suddenly rendered absolute idiots (Dany supposedly "forgot" about the Iron Fleet? Seriously?) There's not much I could say about that abysmal final season that hasn't already been said. The quality of the writing took a drastic dip after they ran out of source material to adapt, but season eight was the crowning turd.

      you might want to give it shot. its not nearly as bad if you paid close attention the entire series. if you're one of the people that didnt know Jon was a Targaryen until the show literally spelled it out than maybe you shouldnt bother.. but if that was obvious to you like it was to many other than Dany being evil shouldn't be a surprise and neither should Bran being on the Throne. the Major plot points that people complain about just shows how shallow such a massive audience can be.
      i will say the script was lazy and the way they ended minor characters like Varys and Brienne were horrid.. definately worse than evil Daenerys.. evil Dany was hinted at since the first season many times.. literally everytime they mention her father.. if people didnt see that coming they werent really watching the show lol

    If only he...you know.....FINISHED them long ago. That way we can get a proper consistent story and not a slap in the face for everyone. All of the actors were upset with their characters abrupt and unnecessary endings.

      @Ismael But *is* ASOIAF actually good? I know we all wanted it to be. I damn sure did - that's why I read book 5 after the pointlessness of 4. It's okay, maybe even good, but certainly not great. It's decent political drama, and the subverting-expectations gimmick is memorable. But Martin has no vision, no ideas, no real story to tell. That's why we haven't, and won't, see book 6, ever. He defrauded us. The books don't suck, but let's not pretend the series is anything other than decently l-written, fraudulent crap that wasted our time.

    A massive blunder that never gets talked about is what they did with the Hound. Since season 1 we learned that his older brother had burned his face off and from that day forward the Hound was seeking vengeance on the Mountain. Fast forward to season 8 and I am expecting to seeing the Hound finally get even with the Mountain. Instead he gets the crap kicked out of him for an hour and then realizing he failed he kills himself and his big brother. How is anybody supposed to feel good with how that went down?

I’m no screenwriter but I can think of many ways they could’ve done this and all of them are better than what we got.

    Long night battle was just wrong.
    Everyone at this point knows you can’t defeat the Others in a traditional battle.
    For the very fact that your casualties end up swelling their ranks.
    It’s statistically impossible.
    So a grand battle is just stoopid beyond belief.
    Jon should’ve known this along with anyone who’d faced the Others.
    It’s also the same trite cliches that Martin carefully sidestepped.
    In which all conflict is resolved in some great battle. If you’ll notice, nearly every season towards the end used battles to tie up everything neatly and tidily.
    Did they learn nothing from the red wedding?
    Things are not neat and tidy in GOT.
    And resolution via battles is just a euphemism for the bad writing of Hollywood.
    And how many times was the Long Night alluded to?
    I thought for sure we were going to get some truncated version of the past Long Night in which the Others ravaged all of Westeros.
    And it cuts against the most dominant theme in the books, that everyone is squabbling over petty things like the Iron throne while the greatest existential threat to humanity looms large.
    So only the North suffers for that petty squabbling?
    The North who already knew and remembered that what lurked beyond the wall was a threat?
    The rest of Westeros goes on in ignorance.
    All those that mocked ‘grumpkins and snarks’ never realized how wrong they were.
    All the ‘wise’ maesters who ignored the threat never experienced their folly.
    No lesson learned.
    And Cersei?
    The one who not only turned her back to the threat of the Others but uses it for strategic advantage.
    She never gets any comeuppance for ignoring that threat.
    A perfect conclusion would’ve been Cersei dying by Jamie’s undead hand.
    Serving to admonish Cersei for her disdain of the Others while fulfilling the prophecy.
    Not to mention Sam and Bran’s arcs.
    Bran’s arc is to be bait for the night king while warging around purposelessly?!
    Fuck off.
    And Sam’s arc was no more than finding dragonglass?
    That’s only mildly better than Bran’s.
    I’m just so disappointed.

Everyone who made a mistake in the game of thrones was punished for it. And here we have season 8, where everyone can make the most dumb mistakes and not only get away with it, but rewarded for it. D&D really forgot what made the books and the early seasons of the show great. They valued fan service and nice visuals over great story telling.

    Now that it's been a couple years, what's interesting is how thoroughly AGoT has been dropped from pop culture. The actors show up in other media but the show itself just vanished. There's a sense that GRRM won't ever finish the series, may not even finish the next book. Hollywood still has big plans for spinoffs, prequels, etc. but I feel like the viewing public is just done with it. That's a hell of a finale, that it was bad enough to destroy the whole run of the series.

      @Lemuria GameDev Exactly. Perhaps it explains why D&D suddenly decided to drop out of taking over Star Wars, after having rushed AGoT's ending just to start on it. OTOH, the new prequel, House of the Dragon, is excellent. It started out doing good but not great in the ratings, and then viewership steadily increased as word got around.

    it's actually kind of sad how bran is portrayed as just a barely concious entity trapped in a flesh box willingly so he can communicate with everyone, now i don't know where i heard what i'm about to say so forgive me if i butcher it or if i'm wrong, but in the books they detail bran's out of body experience as more than just seeing his dad's past etc, in one scene, according to the order of the green hand i think it was, in one of their videos they go over how their is a lot of little references to lovecraftian horror in the song of ice and fire, like the iron island throne which is not man made and depicts fish people, or the fact that their are other gods in the world that are dark and terrifying, and bran i think if i remember right, SAW one of these ancient deities linked to some red jewel far east beyond the realm of the dothraki, and so on, some far country conjuring some great unspeakable evil and something a thousand times worse than the night king to come, or some such thing, i think part of it is taken from the book in like a single paragraph description and the rest is speculation, but part of the reason he seems barely their or seems to barely care, is because he knows none of this means anything and that something even worse is on the way and the kingdoms need to be back in ship shape before that and so he's cool with whatever so long as their ready, sadly NONE of this makes it into the movie and like i said i might be miss remembering the video, and some was speculation, but it stands to reason their might have been much more planned for the series as a whole

    To this day I keep wondering the usefulness and symbolism of the wolves that had so much prominence and stage time in the first episode. One pup for every Stark child, including one for the bastard. Wolf that is the symbol of the Stark house. Surely they would have some relevance to the story. 8 seasons later and it seems to me that RR Martin and the Direories have tried to include as many references as possible in GoT and then they don't know what to do next. The wolves of GoT for me are the most iconic.

      He can't be that smart if he still needs a master of whisperers despite being able to see the future. Also, important story aspects happened way before he could see the past/future. So the only thing Bran did is warge into D&D to write this shitpile of a story.

    The fact the two producers still have jobs is proof positive about how corrupt the entertainment industry is. Producing bad but fun shit (looking at you Mike Bay) is one thing, but these two LITERALLY destroyed the final season so badly that it went back in time and nuked all 7 prior seasons, and, it wouldn't be a stretch to think that it will fundamentally impact the sales of George RR Martin's final book when released.

    • Wendell Shorteyes
      Wendell Shorteyes 8 ай бұрын +2

      Nope. I'm an idiot, but it's easy to craft an intelligent character--their actions just have to make sense for their motivations and personality. You have the infinite advantages of time and internet to tweak the details, and the fact is they'll be judged by their actions within the context of the story.
      Take Littlefinger, for instance: in the first seasons he seems intelligent compared to most of the poeple around him. In my opinion, that's sort of a 'you dont have to outrun the bear...' situation. When it comes to sly trickery, basically only Tyrion or Varys hold a candle to him in GoT. But put the same Littlefinger into the midst of the French Revolution? I say he's out in the first round of beheadings, maybe second.
      D&D just got too greedy, they wanted it done fast, they wanted the Star Wars deal, they wanted the Netflix deal, and they got it. Hundreds of millions of dollars, and the ire of entire fanbases. That's enough for them to feck off somewhere forever.
      They weren't just dumb, they were lazy, which is a special kind of dumb, and for it they deserve the nickname Dumb & Dumber stamped on their foreheads forever.
      I mean, damn... Tyrion and Sansa join Dany, one of them turns Benedict Arnold, Arya kills Cersei, Jon fights the night-king, Bran wargs into a dragon to help him out... It plots itself.

      There are some tricks you can use. In fiction if the smart solution doesn't quite work, the author can adjust the problem until it does. As someone else said you can give yourself weeks to think while the character only has seconds. But yeah here it is true. The failure to write smart characters is one of the earliest things that start to shit up in the show, as far back as S5.

How you can kinda see things before it happens, but what could is that ability of you can’t stop it. The three eyes Raven can’t take control of mentally sound people, only people like Holdor or animals. At that point just hunt the three eyed Raven down every time.

      I remember being kind of excited about that "hold the door" development, seemed like a new twist on the time paradox thing. I predicted that's where the Mad King's "Burn them all!" psychosis came from. Bran physically in present time surrounded by zombies needing burning, affecting the past in astral(?) form. Of course, ability was never mentioned again, went back to just being a peeping tom

    My biggest gripe is, by far, the characters that were 'phosphatized' for something and literally came back from the dead only to be completely thrown out unrespectfully. Like the one-eyed brotherhood knight who died, what, like 6-7 times and did pretty much nothing in Season 8? Or the red witch who also did pretty much nothing during the battle except get the dothraki killed with slightly higher morale. Or like any of the Starks just standing in the background and getting non of the send-offs and scenes we hoped for. Or if that's not enough, what about Jamie who was at the peak of his whole redemption arc and then just ran backwards to his death for something so little and stupid. Or the Cleganes being anti-climatic despite build-up for years. I could go on and on just like this video could have, but damn I'd be worn out eventually from all the problems and issues the last season alone had. It's a shame how far down it fell with how much they had to work with

    Omg! This video nailed how I felt last night watching this episode last night for the first time. There was just no thought or care about the details. It drove me nuts trying to watch it because questions and details that would have been fleshed out in previous seasons were just ignored and the characters, well, seemed to be out of character. It was a huge letdown and so unsatisfying. All of a sudden, there’s a meeting right after the dragon takes D’S body away. What? So everyone psychically knows she’s dead and they all leave their kingdoms randomly to meet to talk about it? I even could go along with Bran being the king, but nobody even fought for Jon’s claim - just ‘cuz grey worm says no. Come on. After the political intrigue of the earlier seasons, I felt dumber after watching that play out. And why would anyone want to going sailing with aria? And like what was mentioned- all of a sudden, militaries are resurrected and buildings are rebuilt magically….,What? What a letdown. 😂.
