Lol I've been watching this guy's videos for a little while and his latest "Pitch Meeting" episode didn't disappoint. XD (here's a tinyurl link so the video doesn't embed)

While, I think it was indeed rushed (I think there should have been an entire full season of Dani going mad, and then have the following season be what we got in Season 8)... I did enjoy the ending, regardless. But I will say that video was pretty damn funny, regardless!

Also you can embed Youtube videos without it popping up by doing this:

Code: Select all

[url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAhKOV3nImQ][b]this video[/b][/url]
Like this: this video

So as long as the words between the URL ("this video" for example) isn't also the Youtube URL, it will show the text rather than pop up the video.

Is anyone going to check out the "prequel" stuff - entitled "The Long Night." (Working Title)

According to HBO, the as-of-now untitled new show (rumored to be called "The Long Night") will be set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, and would chronicle "the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’s history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend, only one thing is for sure: It’s not the story we think we know."

It's worth noting that they were talking about 5 prequel shows in the works and then after the finale aired HBO walked that way back to 1 and said "we'll see how the pilot goes."

I'm sure people will be watching, though.

I finished the show, and I'm only disappointed that it ended so predictably. Everything went full fan-fiction three seasons ago when they caught up with the books, so the ending didn't surprise or anger me like it did everyone else. Dani goes insane at last minute and becomes the Big Bad, check. Everybody else's favourite characters live, check. The dragon eats/melts the Iron Throne, check (I only got that one half-right.) Overall, it was fine enough. It was a pretty amusing Hollywood ending for what it was.

I'm more angry about fan-reactions and everyone telling me "it's the worst thing ever" in the weeks leading up to it. That does NOT psyche me up for watching a show. I actually took three days off between episodes 4 and 5 because everyone told me they should've stopped there. This is the first time I actually sought out spoilers just to know what horrible thing was around the corner... only to find out it was a happy ending that was driving them crazy. A happy ending isn't ideal for GOT, but when it comes to bad endings, a happy one is definitely more manageable than the alternatives.

Besides, I'm convinced that once all the books are finished, HBO is going to remake the series anyway, just to make it "closer to the books" and show us the real ending. There's a demand for it, people will watch it, HBO will do it. Something like a "Game of Thrones: Brotherhood" kind of deal (anime fans might know the reference). Or they might go back to season six and remake it from there, just to show us a "That's how it could have happened... but how about this?" ending. One where the Night King takes the Throne, because until Season 6, all my money was on winter coming.

Indeed! As soon as he said that, I heard the music for it!

I think what most people seem to be upset about is...
How quickly Dani turned into the big bad. They only lend to it 3 or so episodes before she loses it. Before, she was kind of the big hero everyone cheered for - the Breaker of Chains and all.
It would have been, I admit, nice to have an entire season of seeing her, glaring around, getting paranoid, etc., rather than just 3 episodes, right at the end.


Or maybe that's not what they're mad about (I stopped reading their entitled opinions, once I heard they were doing a petition to demand it be redone!) :roll:

But it's something I would have liked to have seen. Everything in GoT was a VERY slow burn (Jamie is a "villain" for several seasons, slowly "redeems" himself to be likable, just to "turn" again very quickly). So seeing Dani, SLOWLY lose her mind, over an entire full season, would have been nice. Then have the following season be what we got in the final season. I feel like a Season 7.5 to show Dani's descent into madness would have been great! But, as I said - I was fine with how things ended - just wish there was more build up.

It kind of felt like... Kind of like when a guy is with a woman, and goes straight for the "jack pot", rather than warming her up, as Larry Laffer might have put it. :lol:

The petition was about sending a message. Nothing more. Nobody expects HBO to actually redo the season.
