    Writing awards for D&D!

    i liked the last episode, eventhough i think it had some weaknesses, i really liked the last season of game of thrones, but of all thoses six episodes, i strongly disagree that the last one is the one that would deserve a writing nomination... episode 2 however....

    Extended Edition

    A lot of criticisms say the season was rushed, an extended edition could solve the problem (if there are indeed important scenes that were cut). And i'm sorry but making a petition while knowing it's impossible to remake the season is even dumber than i thought. But unfortunately a lot of peoples are crybabies it has always been the case, and internet has made it worse. Now i will probably not bother answering you anymore, because i know we don't agree, i have no problem with that, but there is something agressive and hateful in you that i don't want to deal with. So, as you say in France, "passez une bonne journée" (to be honest i am french too)

    Extended Edition

    Just an idea... i quite liked the last season, but i did feel it was quite rushed sometimes, it didn't ruin my experience but anyway. I've seen that there is a petition asking for HBO to remake season 8... i think it's dumb... however, don't you feel like asking for an extended edition release would be more realistic? There are probably scenes that were cut in the editing room, and i understand that tv show have time constraints and the episodes were already pretty long, but for the dvd/blu-ray release there is no time constraint (other than the discs themselves). What do you think about it?

    Red Flags: Dany = Meereen Nobles

    Yes, but to be honest, it's not that she let him die the big red flag to me, it's the look on her face when it happends. She looks like she's either feeling nothing, or worse, like you said about Drogo's speech, she's turned on. For comparaison, we can see Tyrion's reaction to discovering Cersei and Jaime's bodies in the rumbles, he cries... Cersei hated him his whole life, tried to have him killed, and yet, not only he tries to save her life, but he's overflown with sadness when he realises his big sister (and of course his big brother toot) is dead.

    Red Flags: Dany = Meereen Nobles

    There were a lot of other red flags actually. In season one she watches her brother being killed without batting an eye.. yes he was a bad person, but he was her brother, she grew up with him, she could have at least shed a tear, show an emotion, but not, she had that stare, the same stare she had everytime she killed someone, no emotion, and a slight fascination toward what was happening before her.

    Dany the Mad Queen was a terrible idea

    Ambition to rule is a bad thing... yes, unfortunately lot of rulers had ambitions, and you know what? most rulers are pieces of sh**. As for the Stark, well yes they are ruling by birthright, and it kinda works because they have good morals, the show takes a few exemples of birthrights going wrong (Joffrey, Dany) to teach us that it's not a good thing. If every birthrights had to be destroyed so the show would not be hypocrite it would not be credible, it would be like a movie about cigarette causing cancer where every smoker in the world gets a cancer... it would not be credible and it would ruin the message of the film.

    Dany the Mad Queen was a terrible idea

    and yet, in the end, Tyrion's speech in dragonpit is telling us that birthright is a bad thing...

    yeah, she had reasons, but she's pretty f****ed up anyway.... Arya would be a bad ruler... fortunately, unlike Daenerys, she is not at all interested in ruling anybody

    Dany the Mad Queen was a terrible idea

    nobody ever said that Daenerys was the only character that shows crualty in Got.... Arya is pretty f****ed up.... But only Daenerys has dragons and the power to murder thousands of peoples in a few minutes....

    Dany the Mad Queen was a terrible idea

    First, you don't know how much they've changed G.R.R Martin's story thematics, yes they have changed a lot of details, removed some storylines, combined some characters, "butchered" some others (i am not using this word in a pejorative way, but i think everybody will agree that, for example, show Euron has nothing to do with book Euron... i am not saying it's a bad thing, nor i'm saying it's a good thing, but yeah, show Euron is nowhere near as interesting as his book counterpart) but the thematic may have been perfectly respected by Benioff and Weiss... or not... i don't know yet, and you don't either, and anyone who pretend otherwise is just disingenuous. The White Walkers did not end up being a joke, they were a threat, something that made the "game of throne" pointless in the eyes of any sensible character within the show, but this great war was not what the show was about, that's it. The show was about mankind, about what peoples do to other peoples, how the power corrupt us, what is a good ruler, what is not... the white walkers were basically the writers telling us "ok, in an ideal world, all these conflicts about who is on the throne would be forgotten and people would unit because there is something that threaten us all... unfortunately, mankind is not perfect, and once the threat will be done with, they will start again their little game of power" Yeah "ambition is bad" is a "trope" but where the show was clever with that trope, is that it used two versions of it, a classical one, with Littlefinger, and a more subtle one with Daenerys. Everybody could see that Littlefinger was only driven by his ambition, but few peoples saw that Daenerys was too, because we were caught in her messiah complex. And yeah, despite the show telling us that birthright is wrong, the show ended with Sansa ruling the north, and i see no problem with that... Tyrion understood what was wrong with birthright, Tyrion had a lot of discussion with Varys that helped him to... Sansa had not... Not everything has to end well, after all it was supposed to be a bittersweet ending... And finally, in Essos, Daenerys was doing good things, but it was not really for good reasons, she was not, in the beginning, driven by the will to make the world a better place. Remember season 1, she is with her Khalassar and she doesn't mind them pillage villages, yes, she asks them not to rape and kill every women, but that's it... When Drogo talks about killing westerosis and destroy their houses, she doesn't seem to be disgusted at the idea... What happen then is that she frees the unsullieds, not because she wants to free them, but because she needs an army and cannot pay for it. After that, when she realises that her soldiers love her because she freed them, she start freeing other peoples, slaves, mainly because she loves being loved... and in Essos, she gains the support of those who follow her... until she comes to westeros, where she does nothing to gain the love and support of the peoples, she just demands it, because she is blinded by her birthright. And that's her downfall, she thinks peoples should love her when they have no reason to, quite the opposite, she is coming with dragons, with foreign armies, and with a claim based on her father, who was the Mad King... Daenerys should have stayed in Essos, where she had something to offer

    talk about BS.... Kit Harrington crying during the table reading has nothing to do with him not liking the ending... and you know how i know this? because if it was the case then you would have never seen this, they wouldn't have put in in the making of.

    Dany the Mad Queen was a terrible idea

    I knew somebody was going to say that, but it doesn't matter what the book are called, we are talking about the show here, not the books. The authors of the show could have decided to change the core thematic compared to the books (and from what i know, i really don't think they did), it would be within their prerogatives as showrunners... a lot of adaptations do it. Anyway... Yes, Jon Snow is right when he says that the white walkers threat is more important than who is on the throne... but he is right within the world he inhabits... he is not talking about the show. William Faulkner said "the only thing worth writing about is the human heart in conflict with itself". The white walkers, while being a big threat within the show universe was never going to be the theme of the show, just like Emperor Palpatine is not what Star Wars is about, and Sauron is not what the Lord of the Ring is about. When i said that birthright and ambitions were the worst reasons to rules, may be it was not the best way to phrase it... let me rephrase it: "birthright and ambition are not good reasons to rule" so yes, you can find worst reasons, but that doesn't change the fact that these are bad reasons. As for what is the message of the story? Well, let me say it again "BIRTHRIGHT AND AMBITION ARE NOT GOOD REASONS TO RULE".... should i say it again? i guess you will, once again, put your hands over your hears and scream "NAH NAH NAH I AM NOT HEARING!"... And what about Essos? Well... in Essos she was not about birthright and ambition, and in Essos she was doing something positive, she was freeing slaves.... she already had a dark side, and she had it since season 1, but she was bringing something good to the peoples of Essos... As soon as she came to Westeros she was no longer about freeing anybody, she was just about "i want the throne of my father, everybody has to bend the knee before me".

    Dany the Mad Queen was a terrible idea

    so basically when one of the main characters is telling you what the show is about, all you understand is "it's about nothing!" .... i think you're a lost cause... there is no point trying to explain you, you don't want to understand anything...

    actually there is a lot to learn from her journey!

    Dany the Mad Queen was a terrible idea

    if it was stereotypical she would have been the villain since the beginning and you would be happy with that... The show is about how birthright and ambition are dangerous, and Dany was all about birthright and ambition
