Sellsword (3/8)

  1. Honestly, at this point, I'm just so tired of hating and ranting about Game of Thrones... but I'm still not over it, so I come to forums and watch videos about other people ranting... I think only Winds of Winter can cure this wound that D&D gave me.
  2. We don't need to see Bran ruling to see how hard it is to rule, we've seen Cersei, Jon and Dany do that.
  3. Has anybody considered the idea that Bran might become king 40+ years later after the main events in the epilogue? Everybody seems to think that a 10 or 11 year old Bran will be elected new king...
  4. I wonder what made them drop the "Tyrion is in love with Dany" storyline. A Jon-Dany-Tyrion love triangle in season 8 - this something so horribly bad I'd watch it just so I could hate it.
  5. Okay, the first sentence of the article is already wrong - the opening sequence of GoT is by far the best opening of anything ever and fans to not "dread"it.
  6. You can actually take any moment from season 2 and say that this is when they started going off rails. I just recently re-read the books and re-watched the series and season 2 is so butchered I find it surprising it never bothered me before. Season 3 is much better adapted, because they split ASOS into two seasons. They should have done the same with ACOC. About 1/3 of ACOC is not adapted at all. I'm not saying one third of the book is changed during adaption, I'm saying 21 out of 70 chapters in ACOC are just left out completely. And the rest is heavily modified for the show. But I do admit that I enjoyed rewatching season 2 as a good television series even now after everything. Personally, what bothered me in the show the most was Robb not becoming the king in the North AND Riverlands. Riverrun, Edmure and Blackfish should have all been introduced in season 1. Instead, Robb spent the first two seasons as a romantic freedom-fighting king (don't even get me started on the war strategies or the war at all) who suddenly in season 3 had to go to his mom's place because grandpa was dead. And now he was suddenly the king to the Riverlands as well. I'm quite sure D&D would have left the Tullys and Riverlands completely out if they didn't like the red wedding so much. But basically yea, I didn't like how they adapted Robb's and Catelyn's storys at all, so for me it started going off the rails in S01E10, I seriously started doubting in it after Jaime raped Cercei and by the middle of season 5 there was no hope left. So when season 8 failed after another fail I was already used to it and it didn't bother me as much as it seemed to bother everyone else who considered season 7 a masterpiece.
  7. I'm reading some comments from season 2 threads and it's so horribly funny how much people defended stupid decisions back in the day. For example, Jaime killing Cleos Frey while he is still Robb's prison. Oh dear how wrong were those guys. I think finding excuses and more excuses was the mistake, if people had shown a little outrage or discontent towards the changes, then maybe D&D wouldn't have been so fucking careless. But no, all D&D heard for 8 years was how big a geniuses they are and then suddenly everyone hated them. edit: the guy's name wasn't Cleos in the show, but was still Jaime's relative
  8. There is some truth in it though. The show was full or flaws and illogical behaviors since season 5, but the mainstream audience only started to notice them in season 8, when the show was nearing the end and it was clear that some shocking plot twist isn't going to fix everything, time's up for that.
  9. The ending of Arya IV in AGOT, after Ned's imprisonment & Arya escaping from Meryn Trant I like the wordplay here - what it literally means, is that Arya is escaping towards the tunnel, which is dark, but if you've read the next novels and you know what kind of turn her story takes, then "Arya plunging deeper into darkness" takes a whole other meaning as well.
  10. I wouldn't be surprised, since they planned the epic Arya killing Night King in like 2015 or 2016. Can't wait for the Emmy awards. The D men are very likely gonna win the best writing and their speech is going to be hilarious.
  11. George wanted Jeyne Poole as fake Arya to be introduced in the second episode of season 4, but the D men cut that out. The second episode of season 4 is also the last episode that was written by George. I don't think the relationship between George and the D men is as dandy as the interviews make it seem, there is no way George is happy with the direction the show went starting from season 4.
  12. Also, reminder, that season 8 scored record number of Emmy nominations and it's likely gonna win a record number of them. Why is it that the show started winning best drama emmys from season 5 onwards, exactly the time when the only awards it should have gotten are for best CGI? The world hates ASOIAF fans in every aspect of life.
