          Zero interest.
          They ruined it.
          Just let it die.
          I dont even care if GRRM dies before he finishes the last book. They took away my ability to care with the fire hose of "meh" the last season sprayed me down with. HBO will lose their ass on another GOT series.

                    Just finished watching the new Dark Crystal series on Netflix after avoiding spoilers for a month. Came to Nerdist to see what they had to say about it. Nothing. Not a single video about possibly the single most amazing creation in the history of nerddom. Boo.

                          I was disappointed in the incredibly rushed ending but I don't hate GoT as a whole because of it. And I don't blame Benioff and Weiss for just getting it over with. They signed on to adapt the series from GRRM's books, not his outline. They worked on that show for a damn decade and GRRM only had to write 3 more books in all that time after they'd started the show (he only managed to give us 1 of those). Instead GRRM's lazy ass left them a choice I'm sure they didn't anticipate until near the end: either write the final books for him, or just do what they could with his outline (None of us know how detailed that outline actually was. It could've just been a set of very simple bullet points even less fleshed out than season 8 was.).

                          I'll happily check out the prequel shows. At least the producers of those will know from the outset that they are mostly on their own as far as crafting the stories.

                                  It seems a little trite to make a prequel show about the Long Night and the origin of the White Walker threat after they didn’t seem to mean all that much in the main series itself.

                                  I mean I’m gonna watch it cause I can’t help myself but still, just sayin’.

                                    Why should I watch their sequel and prequels when they f* the main story up so badly? No interested, not watching.

                                          My experience over the last 20 years or so makes "prequel" a four-letter-word to me. I just tune out, no matter what franchise it is. I just don't give a damn about what happened "before"... *sigh*.

                                                      Not exactly burnt out, but very-very uninterested. There already are so many othet good things to look forward to, and in any case, G. R. R. Martin's imaginareum isn't that compelling to me, personally. (I'ld rather have a thousand stories and shows in Tolkien's, for example, but I get that this is just a matter of taste.)

                                                          Mark my words this next prequel "Long Night" will be one of the worst things HBO has ever or will ever put out.

                                                          1. There is barely any source material (which is what made GoT great. As soon as they ran out and started making up their own scripts that is when the show went to shit)

                                                          2. No one care about the white walkers anymore after they butchered their story in the show. Arya kills the nightking and that's it THE END. Why the FUCK would I care to watch a prequel that's mainly about a dude that we know dies in such a simple way?

                                                          3. NONE of the characters we loved will be in this so WHY the fuck would we care?

For me its more of the fact I dont like unfinished stories and I am no longer optimistic that the series will have a suitable conclusion before he is unable to finish them. It is in risk of being left on a cliff hanger that even if finished by someone else will pale in comparison. I read 4 of the books so far and if he finishes the series then I will pick them back up.
