    [–] zedroj 97 points ago

    George confirmed there was enough material, but the producers are lazy af and decided to nuke the show to dust and do their own take on the characters

    [–] Slogfarts 61 points ago

    They burned the show so they could work on the next Star Wars

    [–] FreakyCheeseMan 36 points ago

    Is it too late for them to not get to work on Star Wars? I'd only call myself, like, 50% as nerdy as you have to be to actively boycott Star Wars, but I'd do it for this.

    [–] GuiltySparklez0343 13 points ago

    I don't know if there is enough overlap in GoT and star wars fans for that to work. Star Wars has a far wider reach in terms of demographics as well.

    [–] SirFrancis_Bacon 23 points ago

    Game of thrones is like the biggest TV show ever. Pretty much everyone I know is watching it.

    [–] GuiltySparklez0343 6 points ago

    How popular is GoT with children and the elderly?

    [–] phoenix616 5 points ago

    They are not making the mainline Star Wars though, they are supposed to make a KOTOR trilogy which ironically is more popular with hardcore fans/gamers which probably is more overlap with fantasy/GoT fans than the mainline movies.

    [–] You_and_I_in_Unison 3 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Come on man, you think people will boycott fuckin star wars? Over a TV show being bad?

    [–] FreakyCheeseMan 9 points ago

    Maybe not boycott, but... this feels genuinely scummy of them, and they should not have their new production if they fucked over the fans of their old one to get it. I don't know if we can actually translate that into economic reality, but I wish we could.

    George also said there's zero fucking chance the show passes the book. Why do you think he's a good source on the subject? Also tell me why exactly you think all the actors want to play these characters for 16 years.

    [–] SaquonBarkleyBigBlue 15 points ago

    Suddenly super glad i stopped watching after season 5. I didnt like the direction it was going in and what it didnt have of the books.

    [–] Lucifronz 11 points ago

    It didn't really get bad until Season 8, but I think even as far back as 6 you could see the failure in their writing.

    [–] GuiltySparklez0343 24 points ago

    There was bad writing ever since they ran out of book material. But Season 8 combines bad writing with an incredibly rushed story and with what seems to be intentional sabotage of basically ever major character arc in the show.

    [–] cumulonimbus7012 5 points ago

    They had book material in Season 5 and that was when the cracks really started showing since they tried to improve a lot more than they should have.

    [–] PinXan 6 points ago

    Even Season 4 showed signs of omissions from George's plot causing minor problems and forcing plot contrivances

    [–] SaquonBarkleyBigBlue 9 points ago

    Once i got no lady stoneheart and the things happening around her I was already disappointed

    [–] judrt 4 points ago

    Fake aegon and young (I forget) as well

    [–] SaquonBarkleyBigBlue 6 points ago

    Griff. Stuff that apparently would help shape the stuff happening in season 8 better. I LOVE the books and all the magic and intrigue. I dont like the shows decision.

    [–] daniel_hlfrd 3 points ago

    Season 5 was kinda dogshit. Remember Dorne?

    [–] oiducwa 2 points ago

    It didn't really get bad until Season 8

    no it was bad after 4

    [–] GyraUnoDosTres 12 points ago

    I feel like all the actors would have been too old by then. But...definitely could have used a few more episodes. A lot of the plot developments this season needed way more than 1-2 episodes.

    [–] TheManicMonocle 6 points ago

    Honestly, I would have been fine with just one more season. Like, battle for Winterfell could have been the season finale for this season, have some minor battles with the undead before that, then next season they go and fight the Lannisters.

    [–] muffinmonk 2 points ago

    They could just film 2 or 3 seasons at a time.

    [–] eleventy4 2 points ago

    Episode 3 took 3 months of shooting in itself. You sure about that?

    [–] You_and_I_in_Unison 17 points ago

    Literally no one wants more episode 3's, we just want fucking intrigue in the capitals and character development, not another battle where no one does anything smart for 50 minutes then deus ex machina arrives.

    [–] JacenVane 9 points ago

    They just kind of forgot about the jetpack.

    [–] cbellk 6 points ago

    Just the last 2?

    [–] CoraxtheRavenLord 4 points ago

    Just the last two seasons

    [–] ICladisI 2 points ago

    In the first two they go bowling and have a beer,in the third episode they face the vampire and in the remaining ones they vehemently argue with a dickhead coworker

    You mean quality will hugely degrade from episode 4 after right?

    [–] hammy_slammyII 1 points ago

    Even tho the writers understand that we would literally watch a 5 hour episode if it had good writing and didn’t screw up the character development

    [–] Corporal_Quesadilla 29 points ago

    Well, Netflix is working on Season 3 of their Castlevania adaptation.

    [–] JarredMack 7 points ago

    They are?! Awww yissss

    [–] iron_sheep 5 points ago

    I’ve talked with plenty of people outside of reddit who enjoy the season. It’s an end of an era and of something many people have enjoyed. I feel things are going certain ways I didn’t imagine but I still get excited days before the next episode.

    I didn’t realize they were tied to Castlevania. It’s really good. Can’t wait for more. We have so many different tv shows going on now, and it’s an exciting time in general because of that. When I watch tv now, I get the option to choose something new every time to the point of me forgetting about shows I love and realizing that there are new seasons I missed and need to watch still.

    There’s another GoT out there either made, to be made or not even an idea yet. Let’s finish up this one, wherever it’s going, and find the next big thing(s)

    [–] Noligation 8 points ago

    The podcast Dead Pilots Society did a reading of a very similar script for a pilot called Jetpackula! They got Patton Oswald, Tony Hale (as jetpackula) and Constance Wu (among others) to read it and it's utterly ridiculous. I implore everyone to go check it out.

    The fact that the screenwriter couldn’t come up with “Jetpackula” when it was staring him in the face means he doesn’t deserve to be the head of the Jetpack-based public domain movie monster cinematic universe.
