Oh I know, I just thought it was amusing to post considering how it could be taken in the context of the more critical fan base absolutely hating the season so far.

I think the problem is that D&D just aren't bothered anymore, it was their decision to cram these seasons into 6 and 7 episodes; HBO initially proposed they do regular 10 episodes per season is what I understand from various bits I've read about it. There are so many errors, examples of poor writing and the show not even being consistent with itself from previous seasons because it is being rushed. It just exists as a means for people to share hashtags on social media now and so they can wrap it up and move onto Star Wars.

They’ve been handed a new Star Wars trilogy, completely separate from the Skywalker saga. It’ll end in tears, I expect.

I'm guessing that many of the cast will be from GoT's. Tormund, Jorah and Bronn in a Star Wars film would be great :lol:

I think it will be a cultural phenomenon for a while yet.



This is the level it is aimed at, people whooping like it's some sort of huge spectator sport.
THIS is the reason why we do not get intelligent things anymore

What we have is another season if you think about it

8.1 = 1 hour
8.2 = 1 hour
8.3 = 1.5 hours
8.4 = 1.5 hours
8.5 = 1.5 hours
8.6 = 1.5 hours (maybe 2)

So that is 8 hours, 2 hours shy of a full season

what we have is shit writing. D&D just wanted it done. To be honest it should have had 15 hours with the battles reversed - the Sansa bit resolved followed by the big pay off with the Night King and more than half the cast dying leaving Jon to be king after a pyrrhic victory

I am so glad I am watching Narcos on Netflix. Every season is better the previous, based on true events and treats you like an adult.

I think John and Denny both need to die but I wouldn't be surprised if we get very very few character deaths now.

At least George Martin will be saying to himself "well I know that didn't work !"

He's probably too busy counting his money to care.

Nah, don't be daft. He was never going to finish it anyway.

I'd bet the fucker had it well finished but decided to make lots of changes after the success of the show and lost his way.
