I've fully admitted the faults of the show. I say what I think is wrong with it, then you just copy what I said... Lol. The only difference is you're outraged. You're feeding of the rage of others and doubling down. When you aren't agreeing with me, you're just posting things almost word for word off Facebook posts... Like the " At least GoT Seas 8 is good for the memes ". That's not a creative or original thought, it's the rage.
And I agree with Stevo too. Expectations were high. Really high. Everyone had an ending they were imagining in their head over the last 8 years... Well, the show is actually ending and not everyone is getting it the exact way they want -- which leads to the complaints and outrage. Some complaints are valid, others not. I've sat here and agreed with you on multiple points, I've agreed with Bjorn on multiple points.
Also, I think you posting the ratings and scores backs up what Stevo brought up and I added onto... Expectations were high, people didn't get it exactly as they wanted it. Ya'll are outraged, you see other people outraged and you want everyone else to know how outraged you are. That's cool. It is what it is. lol
I jumped on the " this is super condensed " bandwagon very early in this thread... Mostly everyone seems to agree with that. I jumped on the Benioff and Weiss aren't good writers bandwagon. We agree on a lot of the main broader gripes of this season. A lot of the things we disagree on are in the details... And BTW, I have also said Benioff and Weiss aren't in this for the details, they are obviously and purposefully skipping details because they probably KNOW they suck at writing. The more detailed you want something, the more writing they have to do. I am the one who pointed out, in this thread, that HBO wanted more season (ka-ching ka-ching)... Dave and DB are the ones who said no. This is speculation, but I think there's a reason to that and it's because they don't want to write it!
The other disagreements in this thread have come down to things like Bjorn and I seeing characters wayyyy different than each other. Or people complaining about the 3 really accurate scorpion shots that took down Rhaegal. As somebody who watches a ton of action movies and shows and stuff... I'm pretty used to the follies of accuracy. I just don't put much stock in that latter kind of stuff. The biggest pet peeves I am gonna have is how they wrap up and finish these individual character arcs. And with a ton of deaths and departures behind us, I don't have many of those complaints. [Edit] And let me say, that could change on Sunday. Maybe they wrap up the Starks and Dany , etc really badly. If I think so, I will let you know. [/Edit]
I went through a lot of this with the TWD... I hated that show for so long, but kept watching anyway. I think I got some sick satisfaction out of hating it so much, lol. Eventually, I just said enough is a enough and quit watching it. Feels wayyyy better. lol
And in the end, I'd much rather finish this series not being annoyed and just pissed off at everything lol. I admit the flaws it has, and I've admitted them continually. I am just not going to give into rage or get joy out of hating this so much.
