    Well i suppose they stuck to the notion that everyone can die in game of thrones, every character, including the show itself in season 8.

    You know i thought that this ending was a little more satisfying, but no any end where dany dies is not satisfying, I know it make me feel like i am a blind follower but she is all that we wanted on the iron throne

    I entered the fandom pretty late (2019) but I can deff see why so many people hated the two final seasons, especially season 8. I too think about it a lot and it still pisses me off how D&D messed up such a near perfect show.

    I disagree with your last point to an extent. Peaking in the penultimate episode is a very GoT thing to do.

    S01E09 is Ned's execution.
    S02E09 is the Battle of the Blackwater.
    S03E09 is the Red Wedding.
    S04E09 is the Battle for the Wall.
    S05E09 is Oberon vs The Mountain.
    S06E09 is the Battle of the Bastards.

    The formula changes after season 6, and there are some exceptions, like Hardhome being arguably the peak of season 5, and the King in the North scene being another peak of season 6. My point is that peaking early and then having a wind-down episode is definitely part of how GoT operates and would have been perfectly acceptable if the rest of season 8 was good. Just like how LotR Return of the King spends about 40 minutes ending, it's fine because what came before was so good.

    An Unpopular opinion:
    New star wars sequels = trash, overrated
    Game of thrones = overrated
    Stranger things = boring and overrated
    New men in black = ... i'll stick with the OG series
    new ghostbusters = overrated, hardcore feminism

    They really ruined a fan favorite character. Dany's story arc of maturation and salvation was entirely thrown out; all that remained were the few signs of corruption, paranoia, and madness that had crept into what was once a three dimensional character. Over the seasons she lost her naivete, her idealism, and the childish delusion that power in the right hands would fix everything, then she got mad and killed everyone. What was the point of her journey? Why did Jon Snow have to be resurrected just to waffle about, fret some more, and screw his aunt? They made all that character development meaningless. It was a weird choice and it did feel like they'd written themselves into a corner.

    The hate towards the coffee cups and water bottles were because it was seen as further proof that the show was rushed and mishandled in the final season. Writers took a year off to develop something great and we got a sloppy mess across the board (including continuity errors).

    GOT started out soooo damn good!!! I watched since it the books...listened to damn near every theory video on here...but when they built up the night king and white walkers for years...and they got killed off in 1 episode...was 1 hell of an episode...the last season was good and bad...truth is...till grrm brings the last 2 novels out we cant compare...grrm can put out dunk and egg and the world of ice and fire but cant finish his main saga...when the show started he said the show and books r 2 diff road...headed to the same showrunners know the alleged outcome of the main i guess thats how it does cant be accurately compared till we have the last 2 this point im thinking the show is gonna be the only end we know...just my opinion

    So to simply answer all things about GoTs ending: David Benioff is a manipulative, narcissistic Egomaniac who didnt learn how to screenwrite and simply got into the Showbiz because his rich daddy was friends with some other rich daddies in the filmindustry.
    Dont argue about plotholes, character arcs and so on. It doesnt matter. D&D are just two hackmasters who pretend to be "genius" writers but their scripts are garbage.

    John Snow was the promised prince and should have ruled in the end. They should,d have spent atleast 2 seasons laying the foundations of Danny losing her mind, and the knight king should have had a full season where nearly destroys everything with the guy in the wheelchair (it's been a while) bei g the one to defeat him with John snow.

    The decision itself that Danny turning evil was cool with me. But the way they did it was....rough

    • R8Zio
      R8Zio 5 днів тому

      It was nonsense cause Dany never showed signs to turn mad if she is in despair. Everytime she felt lost and alone, she grew stronger. Examples: being sold die Kal Drogo and becoming his proud wife and to bear his son. Losing Drogo and most of her "Kalasar" just to emerge out of fire with three dragons. Then being held captive by the united Kals and the Widows, just to burn them down and emerge from fire with a united army of dothraki. nearly losing mereen to the slavers just to come back right in time, destroy them, take their fleet and sail to westeros. Thats where the crap begins with tyrion being stupid and dany forgetting about her enemies aka S7 and S8 and the Storyrush.
      That said, she showed signs of going mad when it came to political matters. And i can see a storyline where power corrupts her and she actually kills everyone in KL. But that was not the case in the show. Show-Dany (as the writers even said themselves) wasnt her father and wasnt meant to turn mad.
      Im pretty sure GRRM told D&D this ending and the two decided to go with it, kinda forgetting they never wrote a story where that would happen.

    So actually, Dany could have gone straight from Dragon stone ( when everyone was still alive~ You're a Dragon, be a dragon) to Kings landing. Torched the walls, and then the red keep, which would have left more people alive in the city and she would have a mostly intact kingdom and then all of westeros would be available to fight the night king.

    I agree taht you can have dany turn "Bad" and Jon kill her but it wasnt earned to me. it's a poorer analogy, but image if Jamie's redemption arc took place in one season.

      @R8Zio they did that for all actors

    • R8Zio
      R8Zio 5 днів тому

      just to let you know that theres a whole big story behind the dorne plot:
      D&D really like the actress Indira Varma, who plays Ellaria Sand. They were fine with her Character being the sidekick to Oberyn Martell. But then they learned that Indira would be in for more work and now really wanted to give her more screen time, so they created the Dorne Plot. That was when they were already in production and every department told them, that they have no capacity at all to do that additional filming. D&D didnt care because they wanted the "bad pussy".
      So they wanted to film in the Alcazar Place in Seville and the whole fight scene between the Sandsnakes and Jaimie/Bronn was written to be at night! But the Palace is Unseco world heritage and you are not allowed to film at night there (if D&D would have just googled it, they would have known). So they filmed it in the garden at daylight. The whole production of the Dorne Plot was rushed because they had little time.
      All in all D&D did the Dorne Plot just because they wanted to see Indira Varma perform (which she did great but thats not the point).
      What is also interesting is that Dorne in the Books was meant to be "Medieval Spain". But D&D see Dorne as their "Brazil", which led to the "you need the bad pussy" line.

    With an ending that somehow managed to exceed the very bad way that Lost concluded. It started to auger in around season 6 or so and just got worse. By the time season 8 got to us, it was on a greased and rapidly sloping decline with no hope of stopping.
    SUPER job on this video. From saying that the Night King was "cool"...ha ha ha! your other more serious points, you really hit it out of the park on this. Very well done!

    4:50 Eh I dunno about this one. Snoke was never built up to be the same threat that the Night King/White Walkers had been for years upon years; anyone who had been paying attention would have known that Kylo Ren was always going to come out on top of that.
    Plus, Snoke was such a terrible villain. He's basically a walking archetype. JJ Abrams wanted to bring back all the classic elements of Star Wars, and they needed an Emperor. So, here's Snoke. Getting sawed in half by his apprentice was honestly the best outcome for an empty shell of a character like that, and a very Sith-like thing to happen.
    Kylo Ren doing this also makes more sense than bloody Arya doing it; Ben Solo has always been a character going around and shaking up the established order of things, while Arya on the other hand is a child assassin who never had any beef with The Others unless you buy into the whole "Master over Death" thing that they tried to haphazardly shove in mere seconds before she kills Night King.
    Can't believe I'm here arguing that a Star Wars movie might have been better written than an adaptation of A Song of Ice & Fire.

    • R8Zio
      R8Zio 5 днів тому

      The difference between D&D and Gilligan is that Gilligan had a Team around him who would supervise the writing. They had a writers room where they discussed every major idea and brainstormed about it. You can see the same thing with "Rick and Morty", where the two creators are praised for their writing but its actually a big team effort too.
      D&D never did that. Benioff blatantly admitted to come up with ideas for the script the night before scenes were shot and nobody questioned his decisions.

    Nice Video, but you obviously don't get GoT..From the way you described your views on the ''death'' of the Night King to Danny burning the city, you are - as you describe your self- a viewer who started in 2018 and probably bingwatched a lot of seasons.It's a common thing, to oversee some stuff while bingatching a show with a complex plot like GoT.I don't blame you, I respect your opinion, but it's just as wrong as the ending itself

    '' It's pretty great''
    With all due respekt, it's one of the greatest shows of all time and could habe been THE greatest, if not for the fuck up of D&D in the last two seasons.
    pretty great is - to be honest- an understatement.

    • R8Zio
      R8Zio 5 днів тому

      While season 5 and 6 have their flaws, if you put the first 6 seasons together, its truly one of the greatest shows of all time which ends with the big cliffhanger of dany sailing to westeros. In retrospective, D&D should have departed from there and go on to new projects, so other people could have picked up the show and gave it the 6 more seasons it deserved.
      Sadly we are not living in that timeline.

    Arya killing the NK was totally undeserved. There were many others that spent seasons dealing with WW and related issues eg wildlings that could have got the kill. NK didnt really do much harm to Arya personally. Far better for her to have killed Cersei instead.

    Season 8 could have been good IF ONLY the points within it were foreshadowed in previous seasons. Bran as the king? Fine. But have allusions to 'A broken ruler for a broken throne' Dany going insane? Fine. But build her up as insane previously (also playing on the 'broken ruler' thing).
    That said there's plenty that is unforgivable, The Night kings death, the walkers not hitting kings landing, the pacing, the scripting. Just thinking about it makes me feel like ive wasted time on this fucking show.

      There is something we can do and already did: Having a voice and telling the world that the last two Seasons are not good screenwriting. You can like it or hate it but that the script of S7 and S8 is total garbage cant be denied. D&D pretend to be screenwriters but never went to writing-school nor read books about the techniques.
      I love the show and because of that i care about how it went downhill!

    I'm so happy I didn't watch it now. I'm the type to stick with it till the end even if it starts getting boring just hoping for it to have something redeeming but GDI GOT was too damn long to even start and I don't care to waste my time starting it then this fiasco happened.
    My mom was watching it and was complaining about how boring the final season was and stopped watching by the 3rd episode (she never finished it)
