What does a Queen song from "The Game" have to do with this story?

I find it hilarious that after the epic failure of GoT poisoning the property, they're spending money on another series.  I just can't imagine bringing myself to watch it, and I'm not even a hard-core fan.  The people who really care would have to be even less likely to watch, wouldn't they?

I don't think so. Some hyperbolic nutters, maybe. Fantasy fans are definitely going to check it out.

I was as disappointed by the end of GoT as anyone, but I don't understand the people who seem to take it as some kind of personal betrayal.

The way I see it, we got several seasons of incredible Fantasy television. The only thing that even compares is the original LOTR films. So they didn't stick the landing. Big farking deal. I got many hours of enjoyment out of it.

So, yeah. I'll be watching the new show. It's not going to be as good as the best of GoT. But few things are.

Inaditch: people who seem to take it as some kind of personal betrayal.


Not a personal betrayal to me, it just retroactively killed all the drama in the political machinations and betrayals, the stuff that - despite the awesome sex and violence bits - was what made the show.

OK, Bran wins 'because he had a good story' - that we pretty much never saw.  And all the other problems just go away after pretty much everyone's dead anyway.  Great. It killed my interest in the world they'd built. I've no interest in even more backstory to a disappointing conclusion.

Excellent. That's what I always say about LOST. Yeah, the ending sucked. Yeah, I wish they had stuck with weird physics and the Dharma project angle... But they went with farking purgatory. Don't care - still had fun with it for several years. It's like going on a road trip to see a music festival and having a great time in the road ... Then it rains on the day of the show. You still had fun so quit whining!

The ending was so bad it tainted the whole process to get there, like a wacky cross country drive to Disney World that ends with you getting raped in Tampa.

Maybe it's the difference between being a Journey guy VS a Destination guy. (Not "Don't Stop Believin') Journey).

For me, the fun along the way was worthwhile even though the ending sucks. But I can understand the other POV as well.

I didn't even know about that. I just got a notice a day ago about my subscription to HBO ending and I was like "did I miss a payment or something?"

i must be the last to know this.

I was as into GoT at the time as everyone else, and it certainly had its poignant moments and unique characters. But as time goes on, I'm less and less interested in it. I can remember less and less about it. It almost feels a little dated.

Compared to LOTR, which is still as vibrant and relevant as when it was released.

I'll still probably check out the new show. But GoT didn't make me care about the world it built.

It didn't help that it wasn't really that... original? It turns out that there indeed were characters with plot armor, it's just that we spent a lot of time watching the red shirts get back stories.

I agree. Once you got past the nudity and unexpected murder, it really wasn't that original at all. The set pieces varied from dreary castle to dreary castle, but brighter because its in the desert.

I liked the costumes the sets and the cinematography of the show. Some pretty good acting as well. The ending sucked and I haven't watched it since it  aired. It left me angry.  I would watch a show about Arya's voyages but that's about it. And I like dragons. But not interested in a prequel.

LOST was like taking a road trip with an obnoxious prick who keeps swearing that although this part of the trip seems stupid and pointless, just around the next bend you're going to see why it's worthwhile and eventually it gets amazing. ... Okay not that bend, I was thinking of the next one. Just another few miles. .... Oops. No, no, I know this part sucks, I promise it isn't all like this. Just another few miles.... Okay that wasn't it. Next town up here, it'll all start to come together. ... Just hang in there. Yeah I know I've been saying that ever since we left. ... Okay, next one. ...Just  another few-- Well anyway I guess we're stopping here, we're out of gas.

GOT at least had some great scenery along the way. LOST was just absolute f*cking garbage.

/probably won't watch any more GOT, but that's just because I've had my fill, not because the rushed ending retroactively made me hate it or anything

TheMysteriousStranger: More like they did not care about the world they built.


See, that's ridiculous. I think it's very clear that D&D and their team, and the actors as a whole, cared quite a bit. They just didn't know how to wrap things up after they leapfrogged the source material.

And, to be fair to them, Martin doesn't know how to wrap it up, either. If he did, we'd have the rest of the books.

Fantasy fan here. The fantasy setting in Game of Thrones is just a backdrop to what is primarily a complex R-rated soap opera.

To be fair, it was *their* decision to rush the final two seasons and bail out to do other things. HBO likes money, and would've been happy to give them the time they needed to do it right, either in terms of additional episodes or seasons. (And Martin would've been happy for them to keep going, for that matter.) They no doubt would've preferred to end the show *well*, but it's pretty obvious that a higher priority was ending it *asap*.

And the massive pacing problem was the crucial failing of the final seasons; many of the things that felt jarring to viewers would've gone down far better had the showrunners bothered to develop them in a style similar to the previous seasons rather than rushing from one cartoonishly abrupt event to another.

Basically (because of the two-pilot fiasco) they were under heavy supervision by HBO up until the Red Wedding made them international stars. So essentially up to season 4, they were closely supervised and they had ample source material and the show was good.

As a point of background, GRRM had always been worried that a bunch of idiots would fark up his masterpiece, so he consistently refused offers to adapt the material. When D&D passed his test he agreed they would be the producers, and HBO was not allowed to change the producers.

Afterward the Red Wedding aired, D&D went rogue. As long as they brought in the viewers HBO wasn't going to cancel the show. So they basically had absolute power. Season 5 seemed a little off, but all the weird story changes were accepted (by many, but not all) as, well the last two books are hard to adapt and these guys know what they're doing, so we'll just have to trust that they know what they are doing. Spoiler: They did not.

I think it took them 6 months to finish the construction across the street... then a few months gap, and then built another home right next to it.

But I took this 'complaint' to be advertising to any GoT obsessed people where to stay if they want to try to sneak onto the set
