                                          I can't believe how many "average" people (no offense meant) have come up with the greatest ideas for S8. The dragon coming from the coverage of nogt/or even water...it makes me want to cry over how obciously it all could have been....and with only the entrails of Georgia R R. Martin's story as the base--that is just how great it ALL was before S8. It literally hurts when I hear all these awesome ways it could have gone. (Sigh)

                                              I've watched a lot of these Season 8 critique videos, but you're the first reviewer to go out of your way to suggest better plot progressions and character moments. Most people have just pointed out the issues with the existing material and left it at that. This video was great!

                                                      Re: Daenerys, the character development is all wrong in the last two seasons. One of the main themes of GoT is what makes a person, their family name, or themselves. I'm betting that R.R. Martin told them the end result, and they totally botched the development leading to all that destruction.


                                                      Think about it: Daenerys comes to Westeros, they fight her tooth and nail, even though in her mind she's just there to save them from the tyrants that be. She slowly shifts against the population -- unable to comprehend that even the poor aren't the slaves of Essos, and won't accept her 'liberation' -- because of that, she slowly goes mad or a semblance of such, and endeavors to save the citizens of Westeros at any cost, even from themselves. The missing development is exceedingly obvious, especially considering the lack of explanation for her manic behavior at the end. Was it because she was a Targaryen? Or was it circumstance and a previously unknown lust for power?


                                                      The reason the ending fits, but the delivery is terrible, is it works with the prior themes of the books and show. People are never what they believe themselves to be (And specifically are not as good as they think). Family determines destiny, or does it? Chaos begets chaos (And violence begets violence) -- a twist on the common Asian theme of 'revenge is all-consuming.'


                                                      But D & D hamfisted their garbage through, and failed at writing and character development. Like someone said of Dark Phoenix, "They should have recognized that the plot was beyond their writers, and payed the money for good writers to replace them." We'll probably never know how it was supposed to develop, because it's going to be forever until the next books come out, and R. R. Martin is getting old...

Now I'm even more mad about her sudden turn. People don't go from zero to genocide that quickly, but dumb and dumber had other projects to get to.

Not sure if I make sense, if not I apologise.

And when it comes to adapting Game of Thrones, they’re really damn good at it! But when it comes to writing it? No... no. And it’s not their fault GRRM is taking forever to write the book (which I think he’s doing on purpose), but they are still bad writers.

It was all about "you come for your revenge you die". So he added some lines as some bonus wisdom "do you wanna end up like me" etc as a by the by, while we're here know that some revenge is good, and you Aria killed plenty of people out of revenge already, call it quits, because if you keep going obsessively about it you are going to turn Dark.

                                                                                  • Tareca Hubbard-holt

I was so disappointed that they made us wait almost 2 yrs for such a sucky ending to it all. What was the point of building up all those great characters just to make their endings so inconsequential.

                                                                                        Violence, sex and dragons? It was not popular due to characters. It was the violence, sex and the dragons. Because there were not any shows really doing the first two to such degree and before this no show pulled off the cgi as good to prove such a fantasy setting could be put on television. The fact that the characters were great was an added bonus. When Game of Thrones was most popular people were literally tuning in to see who lived and who died, what unexpected shocking twist came next.
