    [SPOILERS thru S7] Where did the show go wrong?

    The Hound vs. Brienne wasn't fanservice. It was a natural way to end the Hound and Arya's journey with one another, while giving Brienne something to do. In the books, her arc is filler and she is just wandering around the Riverlands aimlessly. The showrunners certainly respect the source material, as they've adapted the books relatively faithfully through seasons 1-4. When they hit season 5, they ran out of good material and had to cut a lot of the fat from AFFC/ADWD. After that, they didn't have any source material to work with at all. Olly and Karl were minor supporting characters that took up very little time. Cutting them wouldn't leave much room for other plots from the books. Jaime's revelation wasn't needed for Tyrion to kill Tywin, we don't know the relevance of the switching of the babies yet, Lady Stoneheart is a one dimensional filler character, and Show Cersei blew up the Sept of Baelor, so not exactly a saint. Martin is more than a part culprit. If you're upset that D&D diverged from the source material, you have only Martin to blame. He's the one who failed to complete the series before the show caught up. ASOS had a lot of material, so splitting the books into two seasons was the right call. In fact, it wasn't quite two seasons, as some material from AFFC was adapted into season 4, so your next point is also wrong. Material from AFFC/ADWD was adapted throughout seasons 4,5, and 6. Of course, they still cut a lot of material, but most of it was filler and bloat. 8 seasons and 73 episodes isn't rushing by any stretch of the imagination. Remember, it was Martin that failed to provide D&D with adequate material, so they were forced to forge their own path. How would delaying GOT a year have helped? Martin still wouldn't have released Winds of Winter, so they would have had to diverge from the source material anyway. Martin couldn't work the five year gap in the books, so why do you think D&D could make it work in their show? Dance and Feast simply do not have enough proper material to create two full seasons.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Based on those interviews, it seems that D&D are working towards an ending that Martin gave them, though Martin may change his mind and go a different direction. To be honest, I don’t really care. I’m sure I’all be perfectly content with the show’s ending. As for the books, I’ll read them regardless when/if they come out.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    The general consensus is that the ending is the same, but the journey is different. Besides, some people don’t like speaking in absolutes. I always say “I think” even when I’m 99% sure just to leave myself some wiggle room.

    Do you think Doran Martell actually has a master plan?

    Fair enough

    Do you think Doran Martell actually has a master plan?

    Uh, no. Both Show Dorne and Book Dorne failed in every possible way. The only difference is the show knew when to cut their losses.

    Do you think Doran Martell actually has a master plan?

    Yes, he had two. The first was to marry Arianne to Viserys. The second was to marry Quentyn to Danerys. Both failed miserably because Doran is an idiot.

    Better Call Saul -- Season 4 Better Get Emmy

    Yeah, you’re both right. I guess I’m overthinking Saul’s line from BB. It wouldn’t be too hard for Vince Gillen to kill Lalo off without Saul learning about it.

    Better Call Saul -- Season 4 Better Get Emmy

    Oh yeah, that’s true. Maybe he died offscreen at the pool party.

    Better Call Saul -- Season 4 Better Get Emmy

    In Breaking Bad, doesn’t Saul say, “Lalo didn’t send you,” indicating he’s still alive?

    Better Call Saul -- Season 4 Better Get Emmy

    Man, what a waste of a season. Forget about winning, I don’t think BCS even deserves to be nominated for an Emmy. Odenkirk does, though. He had several great scenes these past few episodes. Perhaps Seehorn, as well, but it depends on performances from other actresses.

    Unpopular opinions

    Some people prefer characters that they can relate to. Likability plays a big part of that.
