Whaaaaat? Those movies are masterpieces, especially the second one.

Star wars is already screwed up. I'm not optimistic.

I don't think Christopher Nolan invented grimdark, but I see your point. He did take a superhero series in a super dark and gritty direction, and it was brilliantly executed. Not everyone has his vision or his touch, though.

Yeah, those are two great endings, but also two very different styles of series. GoT could write a LOTR style ending and get lambasted for being "too conventional."

They may have gotten the broad strokes, but the execution left a lot to be desired. They rushed it, is all. I think the season could have been much better had they done 10 episodes and taken their time.

If GoT has taught me one thing, it's patience. This season was rushed and it paid the (iron?) price.

They definitely rushed. The ending to the various plot threads weren't terrible, but how they got there was sloppy. Like Dany going mad queen needed two full seasons of development, not two episodes.

Haha, I get what you're saying. It sucks to invest time in something that shows promise but sputters and limps across the finish line.

The ending was, for me, an upswing after some major missteps in episodes 4 and 5. But overall it still felt lackluster, although I did like parts of it.

Oh, they definitely rushed it. I'm disappointed with the season as a whole, although there are still parts I enjoyed very much. My point was that people would have been upset no matter what, we hyped it up way too much.

I'm glad to hear the later seasons return to form. I'll slog through season 2. It's not my favorite but there are still some compelling moments. I think they just grew the story too quickly.

I'll just make that the title "Murder, incest, rape: all a kingdom needs." Should be a best seller. And a good way to get myself blacklisted by a hundred different groups, haha.

Perhaps a blend of those two options, haha. Kill half, revisit the other half later.

I think it was the result of them wanting to go off and write star wars movies, haha. They got the TV equivalent of senioritis.

I'm not defending their narrative choices, I'm saying people would have been pissed no matter what they did. It couldn't possibly live up to the hype. The show was a victim of its own success.

It wasn't a great ending, but I think they did about as good as they could have given 1) their reduced timeline 2) season 7 3) season 8 episodes 4 and 5- total nightmares. My point was that no matter what they did, people would have complained. Victims of their own success.

My pacing was all over the place in draft 1. Finally smoothed out after several edits, it takes time.
