  1. I think more than to continue Got HBO should want to make it advertizable again. It is hard to make an extended universe and create buzz when people don t want to rewatch the original series. In regards to kit I agree. It should be hard to stomach that you were 1 of the main characters of something like Got and in the end everybody hated the show and your character was ruined. My only doubt is if they intend to make a got s8.5 or some weird Jon snow solo show...
  2. But at the time there was a lot of madness going around. I can t imagine anyone wanting to see a show about terminator Arya in a new land. What is the relation between that and got? Unfortunately that would kind of fit with show Arya. She finds a new land and decides to take it for the starks... And if there is gold she would totally think to use the natives to work the mine so that she can help her smart sister getting money to buy food...
  3. Is Arya that popular? Because after she became the terminator it became kind of hard to care about her... And with S8 and she going away what would her story be about? Who want to see a show about Arya in a land with no relation to westeros or essos exterminating people?
  4. I think this might be positive for the books. It could mean that grrm is admitting that the ending doesn t work and is working on some changes. I mean, if he hasn t released winds by now we can all agree that he is completely lost. Probably realised that whatever he had planed doesn t work... On the other hand this might be a show 9nly about Jon and his wildling pals and therefore have no real meaning...
  5. You really have a grudge against most characters! I think most of what you wrote would be cool but it won t happen. My problem with these suggestions is that they are a mix between a kind of reboot or a story about a conflict between wildlings that I have no real interest to see. For example, the varamyr idea. What would the story of that show be? Jon brooding about his life choices while chasing varamyr? Him accepting that he could have been better for Danny but at that point the only choice was to kill her? I think that while the story will be mostly about Jon it has be about more than the wildlings. And given how got has taken most of the magic out of the story it made the wildlings even more boring... And there are several ways to include other characters while mostly focusing on Jon. Like a essos invasion because of a blackfyre (it would tide pretty well with other series), slavers capturing wildlings and Jon going into the world in order to save them, bran or Sansa dyeing leading to a sucessin crisis, people plotting against Sansa and/or bran and them needing help...
  6. Anything that makes people think about a continuation of Got would attract a lot of attention.
  7. It is always funny to see asoiaf fans worried about delays in wild cards. I am more interested to know if the series will be only about things happening in the true north or if it will involve more places in westeros.
  8. Imdb has an individual rating for each episode and a completely different rating for the series as a whole. And I meant the show was bad, as in it isn t interesting. I didn t mean it bad as in it is unwatchable garbage. Maybe I am being to strict, but a good show needs to have more than slightly good reviews. And by the way, a show that landed kit and Liv Tyler at the time attracted a lot of buzz.
  9. LOL that is similar to the plot of Gunpowder... I confess, in my head this is a one season project where we have an update of what happened in westeros and have a somewhat different ending. If the objective is to have Jon and the wildlings go on adventures and find the beauty of the true north I will be shocked
  10. You are confusing the titles. Kit's Gunpowder has 6.5 on imdb which is bad for a series. For the standards of imdb and Metacritic those scores are bad. You don't really get scores much lower than that unless the production is very low budget or the story is very bad. And your opinion about imdb is what I think about rt. To me it is useless and unreliable. And another parameter you can use to evaluate the series is the low number of people that bordered to rate it.
  11. You consider those numbers a success? 6.5 on imdb for a series is bad. 63 on Metacritic the same. I don t have enough experience with rt to say if 7.25 is good or not. For comparison, those numbers are similar to the outpost. A cw sci-fi show...
  12. Kit was very involved in the creation of gunpowder. I think it was his personal project. And the kindest thing to say about it was that it was boring. If you think about it there aren t a lot of needed returning characters. Sansa, bran, Sam, tyrion would need to appear in some episodes, then it would be nice to have some unimportant characters from got to appear in 1 or 2 eps for continuity and finally at the very least a special appearance from Danny in order to change the last impression we had from jon/Danny. And if some of these characters don t want to return then they can have died. Hell, if the spin off was about the succession after branʼs death it could work...
  13. The problem here is that kit's interviews and his previous series gunpowder are very far from inspiring confidence. And I don t see how a Jon snow spin off can be anything else than a GOT8.5... If they won t show us the consequences of what happened in Got why make this? What I can agree is that other Got important characters won t appear in every episode.
  14. I agree with you, but I think there are 2 important things to add. If the tyrells and lf were together the when it becomes public knowledge that lf is in the vale with a bastard daughter nobody knew about they would immediately suspect it was Sansa. One of the strongest arguments there is for LF having plotted everything to happen exactly as it did is that he tells Sansa he met with joff and influenced him to do something. I am on my phone so I don't have the quote but it is interesting to keep that in mind. However, if we all can agree that nobody knew that tywin was going to die then LF planning to kill joff is mostly useless. It would be much better for him to kill tyrion. But to be honest, I have no idea why everybody was so adamant to blame tyrion and kill him when he was married to Sansa and if they could find her he was still the lannisters best bet to get the north. And there is also the fact there was a known poisoner in KL that hated the lannisters...
  15. Season 5 is much better than 4. It has its silly moments, but in the end you will feel that the whole story of the show makes sense. It is the kind of feeling you would want to have after watching GoTs8.
