    The most important book character that did´nt made it into the tv-show

    It’s impossible to say until Martin finishes the series, as all of the cut characters haven’t really done anything yet. As of now, I would say Aegon, but for all I know Martin could pull a Quentyn and kill him off early.

    I thought “guilty pleasures” were things you liked, but that the majority of people didn’t like, so you were ashamed you like it. Maybe I’m wrong, though. Anyway, I don’t spend my time watching television shows I don’t like, but that’s just me.

    People only enjoy Twilight because they think it’s good, so it’s not laughable at all. There is no such thing as a perfect television show, so if the flaws of GOT stop it from being high quality, the flaws of Breaking Bad stop it from being high quality.

    Quality is subjective, so of course my love for the finale isn’t proof that it’s good. It’s just my opinion. As for your second point, why would you love something you thought was terrible? That makes no sense.

    1. Oh, I absolutely agree that the acting in The Americans was phenomenal and I was very happy when Matthew Rhys won his Emmy. I also believe that the acting in GOT is phenomenal, though I prefer the characters in the latter. 2. Quality is subjective. Always has been. Whether or not you believe a show to be high quality is completely up to you. 3. They showed us that Sansa was a highly competent Lady of Winterfell. I don’t think Danerys went mad. She fell victim to her own ego and became a delusional tyrant, the very thing she’s been fighting against. It was very poetic. She’s always had dark impulses in the past and her first instinct has always been to set things on fire, only her loyal advisers reigned her in. She ran out of loyal advisers. I understand why people think Tyrion has been incompetent, but I looked at it differently. Tyrion was losing the short game, it is true, but he was playing the long game. Tyrion was trying to end the war with the least amount of blood, so episode 5 wouldn’t happen. He wanted Danerys to be able to rule with love, rather than fear. Unfortunately, he failed, but I place the blame more on Danerys and Cersei. 4. When Bran dies, the Lord Paramounts of the 6 Kingdoms will get together to choose a new king. That’s what Tyrion said.

    Because he never desired to rule. As Varys said, the right person for the throne would be someone who never wanted it in the first place. Then there’s Tywin who said, “Wisdom makes the best king.” Who’s wiser than the 3 Eyed Raven. He was wise enough to forgive Jaime, he was wise enough to forgive Theon. He’ll be the first king in a long while who is capable of showing mercy. There was more set up to Bran becoming king than Robb. The North seceding has been set up all season long. Greyworm’s plans were set up when he and Missandei discussed returning to Naath. Yara’s resentment? That wouldn’t have contributed anything. What I really wanted was her reaction to Theon’s death. That would have been better.

    I disagree. We were already shown about why Bran was the right choice for king. Tyrion only reiterated what we already knew.

    Showing is better than telling. They showed us where all the characters ended up. Only, 3 of them were with a montage.

    We already saw where Bran ended up at the small council meeting.

    But I don’t. The Americans is my fourth favorite show despite all its flaws. Breaking Bad is my third favorite show despite all its flaws. Why? Because the positives of those shows also far outweigh the negatives. I hold all my shows to the same standard. I look for the positives, but if the negatives become too much that the positives can’t overcome it, I stop watching.

    It’s not nonsense, it’s the truth. I much prefer the GOT finale to The Americans. In fact, the last montage of all the Starks was more emotional than the entire series of The Americans.

    How so? I listed my reasons for why the finale worked for me.
