It's bad writing
I've realized it's just inevitable for people to hate on the endings of shows/movies/books they love. People have been doing this since the end of the original star wars trilogy. People build up all these grand, unrealistic theories in their heads, then get bummed when something else happens. Just watch the damn show and enjoy one of the best shows ever coming to an end.
@Sappy Poop Stain, I think that has a lot to do with it. They don't want it to end and there isn't any way to end it in a way that will make people happy.
If they were bad writers you woudnt be watching, they just didn't take the direction you wanted. How dare they.
I don't care that you disagree, prove me wrong by not watching the rest of their work.
I also dont care if you don't care because you dont watch game of thrones.
Edit: to everyone that didnt like it, you'll still be there watching on sunday, so clearly you're over reacting. I dont care that it didn't come out the way you would have done it, it was still great to watch.
@TheHippie52, it's bad writing
@microman, 17million viewers, must be some awful writing for everyone to tune in as a joke
@TheHippie52, The first few episodes actually were poorly written. The pacing of The Long Night specifically was awful. But last weeks episode was great, so I'm hopeful, although a bit concerned, for the finale.
@TheHippie52, you seem to be excluding the possibility that they are bad at producing their own content. 17 million viewers came to see them essentially take over writing the story, it is entirely possible they did poorly.
@TheHippie52, ratings do not equal good writing or good television there are tons of sh!tty reality shows or Kardashian shows that have high ratings.
Those shows are piles of trash, it just means they have found a niche audience. GOT started out fantastic since it had tons of source material, as that dropped off so did the quality of the shows writing. The built in fan base from the earlier seasons has remained, does not mean it's good writing.
@TheHippie52, having the night king die with 3 episodes left, and never even touch on why he wants to kill the 3 eyed raven... bad writing.
Having Cersi, the second biggest antagonist, in die buried in rubble... bad writing
Using Arya, again, as the perspective on the ground continually running away while the world burns, but somehow just happens to find a miracle horse unharmed... bad writing
@TheHippie52, maybe fans have just invested what a decade into watching it and maybe even read the books so they're too invested due to the history that they just have to tough it out?
I'm not the biggest GoT fan. I enjoyed it, and have watched it all the way through so far. That's a big time investment to just quit at the end w no resolution even if it isn't that good.
Now, is it worst writing ever? Of course not. If it was objectively the worst written thing ever, (Maybe by the creators of sausage party) people wouldn't watch it. But it's still a pretty big drop from what it used to be.
@TheHippie52, exactly this. Everyone is just butt hurt that it's different than what they want. It's not bad writing, it's just not what they want.
@big freedom, the Night King wanted to kill Bran because he was the memory of man, and the Night King wanted to extinguish it. It was clearly stated in episode 8:2...
Cersi was an antagonist...
@TheHippie52, the writing is just trash compared to what it used to be. It’s not horrible compared to most shows, but compared to the first few seasons of GoT? Absolute garbage.
@fettman1138, or superhero movies...
@TheHippie52, nope, that’s a non sequitur, you are assuming the quality of writing is a constant, the criticism is the quality of writing and directing has fallen dramatically over the last few seasons
@TheHippie52, People will complain over anything and there's nothing they can do to fix that. Even with the rushed writing the past few seasons, it's still better than most other shows on TV right now and I don't think people appreciate that enough.
@TheHippie52, how can you be that fvcking stupid
@agent339, well that's rude. I have more upvotes than downvotes, if it's even close to more ppl agree with me than you, then you're clearly not seeing the bigger picture
@agent339, you're dramatic and overreacting. Didn't I explain that in the original post?
@A Blunt Object, thanks for the reminder... that you’re a sanctimonious prick.
Auto correct changed to protagonist and 1 comment in 1 episode to clarify the entire underlying “winter that never ends” is good enough? I think it’s bad writing.
@big freedom, classy as always, friend.
Happy you corrected antagonist in your post.
I never argued the writing was good, but if I ever need an example of poor writing your posts are a great resource. Thanks.
the fan service to Jamie Lannister was absolute garbage, we deserved a better cersie death.
Honestly the bad writing wants me to start reading the book series
@Dominicant, do it, good series, but long winded at times, you can skip large parts of the Deanarys arc and not even notice (he gets a bit repetitive, kinda like Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand). And even the Martin makes some of his characters do random, inconsistent things at the end of book 5
Glad.i don't watch the show. But if Mr Martin actually finished his books to be able to draw inspiration from then this wouldn't have happened. They weren't gonna stop production for who knows how long just to read a book and then write and get all the logistics working again. And all you people would be pissed you had to wait years for a new season
@dmany13, then I’d be waiting until I died for both the book and the show...
Amazing that the people complaining about the writing in GoT are probably the same people that swear by, and would die defending, all of the Marvel movies. Especially with Endgame. Despite just about every movie being the same surface-level, linear plot, cgi action fest.
People just want everything their way and screw you and everything you love if you don't agree and give it to them.
@Devils Conscious, I don’t watch superhero movies because I get annoyed by them as well. GoT writing was great at first, new season is trash relative to what it used to be.
Don’t worry. They’ll have a remaster and it’ll be called GoT: Brotherhood and it’ll follow the story correctly
