butterweedstrover Posted December 10, 2022 Share Posted December 10, 2022 Hot D is better in some ways, but worse in others. The lessons they’ve learned from the backlash they learned all too well. One problem from GOT was the underlying sexism behind turning a female icon (Daenerys) into a psycho. So instead they turned on the hero-worship for Rhaenyra (her replacement) just so everyone knows she’s the good guy to the point where her emotional stability undermines her relationships in the story. Another criticism of GOT was lore, or the lack thereof. GOT in it’s later period began to ignore a lot of the lesser houses and world building from the books. Hot D is very much dedicated to capturing every minor character, but that has also led to insignificant background characters taking pivotal roles without much time for development and the insertion of historical prophecies unrelated to the main plot being used as primary motivation for the characters. Honestly, it’s proof why hardcore book fans shouldn’t be in charge of adaptions as they are too dedicated to the source material, even the unnecessary parts. Ryan Condal is like someone from here taking charge of ASOIAF material and it just didn’t work. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
