They are just sad that you are missing the best show ever to hit the air smile.gif It honestly feels more like a movie to me than a tv show. There are only 6 shows this season. The scale of it is just huge. Some fans have gotten burned out with the show and say it's turned in to crap. I honestly love the show. If you get the chance, take a look!

Imho the quality went down a bit. I enjoyed it, really liked the end of the first epi. But I wasnt to keen on the cgi and the pacing felt a bit rushed..
Overall I am looking foward for more.

I have to agree. I did like the first season best, even though it was the lowest budget season of all of them, it just had great writing. They seem to be doing a slow/fast/slow/end kind of pacing thing where it just falls off a cliff in parts and pace drops down quite a bit. These types of "two people in a room" two shots used to happen on horseback, or even during a battle. I think they are saving all the money to put on screen for the battle sequences near the end. Gotta say that's what I'm looking forward to. I wanna see all the big armies go after the Dead!

This is my story...

I watched the first season as soon as it was released. Then, when the second one was published, I started watching the first episode and I didn't remember anything about all the families and characters so I said to myself, Why am I watching this if I forget everything? hahahha laugh.gif

The story continues like this....

I picked up my guitar and continued practicing... while my girlfriend continued watching it.... if I ever watch it, there won't be big surprises for me because I've seen some of the most "important" moments..

I must be the worst guy, for a GOT fan! laugh.gif laugh.gif

I hate to admit it but I usually end up practicing while I watch it as it gets a bit slow in parts. It's not enough to keep my full attention. I have to admit also that the gap was so long between seasons that I went back and watched the previous season again to try to catch up. There are only 5 left so I'm thinking it will get moving in the last 2 or 3. All the money is being save for the BOSS BATTLE smile.gif Till then we will get a lot of "two shots" of people talking on a castle wall or in a forest. I am probably the second worst got fan smile.gif I'm always thinking "cut to the battle sequence" smile.gif

Anticlimatic.
Years of stories and characters building and the resulotions of them just felt so dissapointing and disconneted with some heavy plot armor.

Spoiler:
I wished Theon was the one do strike to fatal blow on the night king.

I gotta say I sorta loved it. I Know a lot of folks are really not digging it. I saw the Danny Arc coming I gotta say. (notice no spoiler, just said she had an arc) Also, I will go out on a limb and say Jon is gonna kill Danny. We only got one ep left though so it will have to be quick.

There were several character resolutions in this one that I've been wondering about for a long time. It was good to see how they wrapped it up. However, a lot of people feel flat out betrayed by the way the story went. I liked the hard right turn right at the end, but I hate that it's all over. I know they are making a bunch of spin offs though as it's the most popular show on earth right now and translated in to every language and such. So they are not gonna just let it die smile.gif

This season of thrones has gotten wads of fan uproar to be sure. Some folks just HATE it and some folks just LOVE it. I can't wait to see how they wrap it up. I Still think Jon Snow is gonna end up King (back from the dead, thought to be a "snow", he's come a long way) and he's gonna kill Danny cause she has gone off the edge. Also since he has Targ blood, the one Dragon left will let him ride and might not kill him when he kills Danny.

Then there's 3 of us smile.gif I don't even have a TV to begin with.

I don't know the Witcher series either (it's considered a must-read for Poles) and it feels even more weird than saying I don't know just GoT. If we add to the mix the fact that I don't have an Instagram/Snapchat/Twitter profile and use Facebook really rarely, it turns out I don't even exist smile.gif

I feel like they got too ambixous with only 6 epis imo.
They Season could easily be extended into two.

But lets us see how this concludes.

I'm with ya there! They did bite off more than they can chew it seems and are sorta running for the exit in terms of narrative. Double the number of eps was needed imho. Sadly, we only get 6. I bet folks are either gonna love or hate the ending as it's been really divisive this season. Folks seem to be love/hate on various eps. At least it sure reads that way in the fan groups on facebook. Folks seem to be taking way too much of it way to personally also. I get that we are all invested in the show/characters, but it's still just a show at the end of the day. Some folks in the groups have forgotten that. I've been saying danny will die by jons hand and he will keep the dragon/throne, so I'm either gonna get bragging rights or I'm gonna be eating humble pie smile.gif
