    ▬▬ Information ▬▬
    Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. Based on the fantasy novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. A Game of Thrones is one of the most successful television series to ever made and continues to captivate audiences all over the world. The series is set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos, and interweaves several plot lines with a large ensemble cast. The first narrative arc follows a civil conflict among several noble houses for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms; the second covers the attempts to reclaim the throne by the exiled last scion of the realm's deposed ruling dynasty; the third chronicles the rising threat of the impending winter and the legendary creatures and fierce peoples of the North. Game of Thrones is set to return for Season 8.

      Apparently you put more thought and care in your one comment then writers did with the last 3 or 4 seasons.

    Pretty terrible analysis honestly. Season 7 was garbage. It was a sign of things to come- piss poor writing.

      D&D straight murdered the show for me. I can’t even look at their photo anymore. I didn’t know I could hate some show producers this much.... you know..... until I saw season 8. They murdered the show.

                "The writing was bad, but we wanted more!" _- untitled whiner._
                "I knew *since the beginning* Dany will go mad but it was rushed" _- another untitled whiner._

                    S8 was a travesty because the writing was atrocious! Dany went beserk in 1 episode! Martin should have released Winds of Winter.

                      I agree. Why were they obsessed for the series to have the "same" ending of the books? Were they contractually obligated? If not, they should've done their own thing.

                        Can anyone tell me why Drogon didn't kill John Snow when he realized Jon Killed his Mother? Please, don't tell it was because of his "Targaryen" Blood! Remember the Dragon wars, that was all Targaryens! Drogon should have burn Jon alive on the spot, then destroyed the Iron Thorne.

                                  i finally was able to see the last part....

                                  and - a very very reasonable finale..... very impressive ......

                                  my disappontment is limited......

                                  at the end you made it right....

                                    I remember my son and I when we were watching E3 and we knew there wasn't much time left in the episode and we paused it because it looked like everyone looked like they were obviously going to be dead. We were shocked already because everytime it looked like a main character was definitely going to be dead...cut scene....magically somewhere else fighting. 🙄 So we should have known better. We decided Bran had to be having a vision and then tell the war council and retreat. Unpaused, same crap...Arya kills the NK. We were so shocked and angry. The season as a whole was cinematically beautiful but the writing and dialogue were insulting to our intelligence. Jmo

                                      I definitely don't think more episodes in S8 would fix it.

                                        This is the first GOT YouTube video I’m watching since the days after the finale and I still pissed. I’ve not been able to watch the finale again either.

                                            He's not wrong about great shows with garbage endings. Battle star might have gone down as the greatest TV sci fi of all time but it was hit with a baffling ending and way too many loose ends. Even the wire , perhaps the greatest TV drama of all time , had not a bad but kind of a meh final season, it just felt like it had run out of juice. Breaking bad ended brilliantly though

                                                They lack the plot-lines started on season 4 yeah season 4 and the shock factor Red Wedding they try to copy, but couldn't A Feast of Crows and The Dance of Dragons were combine into season 5 that was their big mistake. The skip many plot-lines from the books. They didn't run out of materials.

                                                    Not only could I have written a better story than D&D, I'm pretty sure my eight year old could have as well.

                                                      Thank you for this. I've pointed out how the tv series broke repeatedly from the books already so it should have just had its own story and ending. This could have avoided what may people saw as breaking or messing up several characters.

                                                              I used to think that television people wrote stupid things because they think the audience is a bunch of dummies. But I now realize that the television people write stupid things because they themselves are Dummies. That’s the mistake we keep making again and again in this society. We erroneously keep thinking that Wealth equals Intelligence. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Wealth equals Greed, it doesn’t have a thing to do with the thing we call Intelligence. It means you have a gene to Acquire Things. You don’t need brains to become rich, you just need brass balls. Which is why we have such a huge amount of Crap on television. Because at the end of the day, people with brass balls aren’t very smart. If they were smart, they would be poor.

Sorry but just because they did more episodes(for the entire show) than expected does not justify rushing the biggest battle of the series, or marinating a feud between Jon Snow and the dickless dude then nothing coming of it. Or Daenerys being taken out quick and not having any guards guarding her from Snow.

                                                                              I definitely agree that the showrunners should have gone their own direction after the source material. I HAVE seen something where way back in the first few seasons, they had an end in mind. The big problem wasn't the length of the run, while there definitely were story lines that deserved more time after season 7, they just didn't do practically any character development to drive the changes in major characters, especially the HUGE change in Daenerys. They just came up with stupid things to throw at her (Sansa being antagonistic, Jon losing his spine and his voice, "she kinda forgot about Euron's forces", and so on) to try to destabilize Daenerys to justify her doing something that we the viewers would never think she would do.

                                                                              They didn't write the story to the characters, they wrote the characters into predetermined plot points and it all just felt wrong.

                                                                              Personally, I'd have liked to see that Cersei miscarriage scene they shot for S7, and have HER go "mad queen" with wildfire all over the city. Leave out the stupid things thrown at Daenerys to destabilize her, make good on all the pregnancy foreshadowing from S7, and make the conflict about Jon accepting who he is and his love for Daenerys, and have Daenerys question if her war for the throne was worth it after Cersie blows up the whole city killing thousands.

                                                                              • Sydni Taylor

First 3 episodes were heavily hinting at a break between Jon and the Starks ( Arya scene where she threatens Jon), setting Bran as a chess player and were still selling the idea that Jon and Dany TOGETHER would have an impact- perhpas even a family.
                                                                                  Then, the last three episodes, we have a shift, where the characters HAVE to act OOC AL THE TIME to counter the plot points.
                                                                                  Season 7 was selling the idea that Cersei decision NOT to go North would bite her in the back. Add that the books hints that the White Walkers would reach the Trident...something DID happen between seasons 7 and 8 that chaged DnD initial ideas.

                                                                                  Who was selling the idea that the ending of the show would be the SAME of the books, but through different means?


                                                                                  DnD, on the contrary, were very clear the ending of the series would NOT spoil the books:

                                                                                  "“So one thing we’ve talked to George about is that we’re not going to tell people what the differences are, so when those books come out people can experience them fresh.”

                                                                                  Benioff added: “And George discovers a lot of stuff while he’s writing. I don’t think that final book is written in stone yet — it’s not written on paper yet. As George says, he’s a gardener and he’s waiting to see how those seeds blossom.”

                                                                                  Weiss explained: “It’s kind of nice for him [George RR Martin] because — obviously through necessity we’ve pulled out ahead — the show has become so different that people will have no way knowing from watching what will or won’t appear in the books.”"


                                                                                  Dont you think Arya defeating the Army of the Dead by killing a show only character is a GREAT change? Why would they not make other changes?

                                                                                  Peopla are making assumptions that DnD got bullet points and that they ended exactly where GRRM will end in tersm of who lives or who dies, but this is just an assumption based on GRRM expextations.

                                                                                  Season 7 had Cersei losing the baby- a scene that would be edited right after or before the scene where Jon and Dany are making a baby ( with voice over of Bran, linking the event to the union of Lyanna and Rhaegar that produced Jon)

                                                                                  This was not a red herring- this was not the showrunners trolling us ( like they did flying Lacquen and the Waif to Spain because of the theory Arya was not Arya or adding a scene of Jon and Dany in the trailer that DID NOT appear in the season)...they have a history if changing things and they just did that.

                                                                                  • Sophia Wilson

I was fine with the WW being destroyed in episode 3 but I was hoping they would do something more creative and give us more info on them (instead of making us wait 2 years for the prequel). I already predicted Daenerys could be the final villain but they way they got there was rushed. I think the problem was the season was so rushed and it felt like a checklist of things they needed to make happen with no depth to how to get there. Basically this season was bullet points GRRM told them but they failed at connecting the dots. I could tell they were rushing to get it done.
