    [Poll] How would you rate episode 806?

    i would have given this episode a 5 because of the appearance of sweetrobin, but i feel a 1 is more appropriate for this senseless pile of shit. season 8 ruined the show, plain and simple. others may overlook how we got to the ending, i dont. the north remembers.

    Possible explanation to "Dany gate"

    Too farfetched.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 805?

    I dont care about how well a show or movie is done technically. I wasnt supportive of one or another character. Up until last season i wouldnt have voted it below 5, but it has evolved into the typical mainstream Hollywood trash. Its the lack of any creativity and it is offensiveness to anyone who has seen all the episodes before, it has gotten just plainly stupid at this point. If you cant see this, i cant help you. I think the points of those rating the show a 1 are far more convincing than those who gave it 3 or more. Seen in the context and history of this show, the last episodes have truely been an abomination, a parody of its former self. (as wsc rightly said before)

    this episode was rubbish and its tiring to read apologists defending this trash. please go back watch some season 1-5 episodes, switch to season 8 and wake up. one more episode and its buried dead, finally. what a shame to say this. 1/10
  5. rubbish, complete rubbish. even missandeis death was embedded in so much stupidity, it is too hard for me to swallow. everyone completely out of role. literally, everyone. my expectations were on 0 after last episode and guess what? this episode completely matched my expectations. everything is completely off the rails, i have zero sympathies left for any of the characters. every scene and dialogue is destructively bad written, it is sad. i dont care who will sit on the damn throne anymore. 1/10

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    after several days the episode sunk in deeper and to be honest, its shit, thats what it is, dumb shit. i went from 9 (straight after watching it) to 6 (i voted) to 1 at this point. it is so breathtakingly stupid and betrays everything the first seasons were all about. it treats the viewer as absolute idiots and its so incredible how the show has been ruined with one episode, simply unbelievable. i somewhat thought that 2 years will lead to some reparations from last season, i was wrong. i thought, maybe they would watch the whole show again and come to the conclusion why they messed up the last seasons and fix it. no they didnt. the writers are unbelievably unable. got is dead.

    Great battle plan! Dubious tactics discussion.

    there is a pretty simple reason why the stupidity of the tactics was so blatant. danys and jons armies werre never meant to win the fight. this and the lack of creativity amongst the writers of the show led to what we got presented. the baseline was, we have to get rid of the armies so that cersei will pose a bigger threat in the aftermath, because thats what we want the endgame to be. how can the armies be depleted in a visually and emotionally effective way? now from this point they didnt invest any deeper thought in authentic or smart military strategy because they wanted them to fail. its too obvious and simple to see. the displayed strategies were just stupid and had nothing to do with anyone investing a serious thought. people defending the shows strategies look over the most simplest basics of tactics. and be reminded that we are talking about parties that have been involved in serious warfare and thus strategy before. the very first and most important thing in any kind of war is information. that said, not taking the information we got from survivors, especially high level leaders with first hand experience like jon snow is beyond plausible and everything beyond that is part of the realm of subcreative, uninspired writing of low-talented people who dont make a living writing bestselling books but parastising on bestsellers others have written before.

    maybe drop some flares first with the dragons? not using the dragons to scout was military-wise not very smart to begin with...

    lol, this topic is about rating the episode. i stated my opinion thats all thats to it. and giving the latest episode a 6 is hardly hating.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 803?

    right after watching i woud have given it a 9. now, in hindsight i rated it a 6. there is just too much stupidity going on in the latest seasons. some of the terrible stuff my brain had to overlook while watching it: - the military strategy was just crap. i understand that the showrunners wanted to have danys troops decimated for future reasons, but letting the dothraki sacrifice themselves for no reason at all? the dragons waiting behind the frontline while they got slaughtered? no burning oil thrown onto the zombie heads? melissandre only setting the dothraki weapons on fire? - not a single thing learnt from hardhome? neither the headless storming of the undead considered nor the reanimation magic of the night king? how dumb is that? - the white walkers doing even less than bran? why do they have these fancy spears if they do not use them even once? - all the main heroes surviving except jorah and theon? (theon running for ten minutes towards the night king just to be sidestepped?) - after the reanimation action it should have easily been game over for everyone in winterfell, still our heroes kill, kill, kill. - melissandre committing suicide for no reason at all. - arya not even trying to use her many face skill. - ghost? 125% redundant. just a stupid dog running around. the list could go on and on. the night king and the invasion of the undead stopped right in front of the wall and having the night king killed in one battle episode was super meh. in hindsight it felt like a terrible purpose episode, killing danys and jons armies while sacrificing the whole night king/white walker/undead plot for it... super duper meh. so whats left? dumb cersei and her clown waiting for some action. the saddest part, not a single shot of sweetrobin, who was in training all the time. i enjoyed it while it lasted and was very disappointed in hindsight. lucky people with power switches on their brains.
  11. i rated it a 5. i was pretty disappointed with this episode. the dialogues were pretty bad and the staged meetups didnt help either. things i thought to be worst were - arya and gendry going for a ride - this one was just cringeworthy and didnt fit at all to the character arya lately developed. i dont mind to see a naked arya though, she is a grown up now and this may very well also be shown. nudity is part of game of throwns so there is nothing special about it. - tormund being like an adolescent about brienne - its just childish bs. i am 100% pro briemund but not in this slapsticky stupid way. - sam giving his family sword to jorah - jorah should have never accepted the sword and should have pointed out that sam is now the rightous owner of it. maybe one of the weakest flaws of this episode, to my taste. - ghost - a husky ignored by jon? even though dogs are simply annoying animals to me, ghost (if it really was ghost...) didnt deserve this. a direwolf the size of a husky? cmon. writingwise i found this episode to be as bad as the worst episodes of the last season. i just gave it a 5 since it has been 2 years to see my favourite show continue. this episode was weaksauce. they should have dived straight into the fight with the undead in episode 1 and set the meetups along the fights on the battlefield. until now it was just a display of uninspired writing. and where, where is sweetrobin? i would rate any episode with him riding on scene with full armor, ready to fight, an insta-10. sweetrobin ftw!
  12. the wall is down. 10. was thinking between 6-9 but the wall is finally down that equals a 10 in my book. i rated last episode 3, which it totally deserved, it was rubbish. this one started somewhat weak to me. i feared for another terrible one but it grew stronger and stronger leaving out theons stupid ball kickery leading to a nonsense recover and jonnys romance crap. bealish is finally dead, this took too damn long. the big meetup took quite long too, but jaimie getting his butt up to finally leave cersei behind was worth it. at this point i was at a 6 still being angry at the last episode. from then on it went upwards and the ice dragon blasting the wall convinced me that this was a one of the very central episodes in the game of thrones series. at this point jons heritage didnt really shock me but i am glad its finally out. this episode was also a good reset. i am really looking forward to see the next season. overall i rate this season a 7, mainly due to episode 6. it all felt a bit rushed but finally, after 7 years that damn wall is down. just hope the nights king is just a minor general... and sweet robin trained like rocky to kill frankenmountain. oh yeah, and tyrion should have been jorah in that staircase scene, hehe.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 706?

    i got to be honest with you guys, this was a 3. it was wrong on almost all levels. usually i wouldnt go lower than a 5 or 6 for the general high quality of this show but the destruction of consistency and sense was a new low. - i never liked the character benjen (helping bran should be a death sentence on its own, oh wait, it is!) but seeing his potential and mystery cheaply wasted and at the same time getting jon saved in such a miserable way, was weakest sauce. - the whole idiotic idea to catch a damn zombie cersei wont give a about, killed tyrion in passing. - this crappy "i would if i could" cheese and with it all the failed jonny romance. - running back to the wall? and if that wasnt enough, riding back soaked wet through ice? and dany taking spaceship dragonprise to warp 9? And all of it happening in one episode? Total chaos. - though not on the same level as the other failed elements, these chains! and the obvious fish zombie necessary to attach it... - the sansa and arya storyline along with the whole LF drag. if it wasnt for tormund and hound talking about brienne, this episode would have completely failed. that way its simply a disaster. 3, never thought i had to be that hard to my favourite show. somehow i am afraid to watch next episode. lets just hope they had to mess up one episode for whatever reason and this was an ugly exception. it left a very foul taste in my mouth. frances called it seven samurai in the snow, i cant leave it that way because seven samurai is cinamatic pinnacle. this episode was the complete prometheus experience. a slap into the face of brainowners.

    [Poll] How would rate episode 703?

    gave it a 6. bran telling sansa he is the three eyed raven able to see the future and the past and what did he look at? ramsay raping her... yeah boy, better watch your third eye. really of all things he could talk about meeting his sister after years of exile, he chose to tell her he was watching her getting raped... i always hated this useless eyeroller, all the people who died saving him... go warp into a jellyfish and look into the sun. cersei poisoning bronns wife to be was a nice scene though not violent enough, they could have at least half crushed some dorne head. jon meeting dany... boooring! greyworm... still alive... meh

    How would you rate episode 702?

    gave it a 9. too bad nymeria and fellow wolves didnt kill arya, what a missed opportunity to finish her off. the stupid sand snake sisters death was pretty pleasant but it could have happened several seasons earlier. misandeis and greyworms relationship finally left the friend zone, time to leave them both behind. man of the match: theon honestly, right now he is my favourite character. his jump overboard was so hilarious, i had to laugh along euron. all in all i thought this episode was more compact than the first one and raised the speed of events which i welcome. somehow the last season put me a bit off, at some point bored me a bit, now i am looking forward to the next episode. gotta say it again, theon, best man of westeros!
