Question: do you legitimately think before you type? Or do you just try to immediately negate anything anyone else says by typing like a douche?
Again, I work in TV and film production; and I'm talking about when people at a company approach me and say something along the lines of: "Yeah, we want to tell the world how shitty this season was, we thought it was shitty too. But, you know, we have to report what's given to us. End of story."
A president of the network/distributor company that ordered the series is not a media outlet or entertainment news outlet.Where I roll my eyes is wondering how you think working in film/TV leads you to believe you have special insider access to what the global or critical consensus is on the final season. You have special information that all the mainstream news outlets are just dying to report on how bad the GoT final season was?? C'mon man, you're being ridiculous.
I mean honestly, listen to yourself:
But it seems like Casey Bloys (President of Programming at HBO) is finally coming around. His last line in this statement kind of confirms what D&D were obviously doing.
He just says that: "I think the last thing fans want is something that was rushed out just to make it to air." We can use context clues here or even subcontext to infer that he was admitting (amidst all of the fallout) that the final season of Game of Thrones was indeed "rushed out just to make it to air"
From the same interview:
"I think everybody had hopes for where the characters might go or should go. But Dan and David have had a plan for how they wanted the show to go for a long time, and they did it the way they thought fit as creators. I think they did a spectacular job. They landed a big plane, which was not easy. You are never going to keep everybody happy, but I don’t think that’s what they were trying to do."
I don't need to read between the lines here. I just read the actual lines. If the president of HBO wants to insult D&D, they can just do that directly. They don't play it out "discretely" as a wink in a public outlet to confirm to die-hard fans the secret truth that they already know.

You're legitimately taking two separate posts I made that have nothing to do with each other and trying to use them to piece something together because you want to conjure up some kind of pseudo-argument in attempts to validate your douchbaggery. It's kind of sad, actually.
I'm sorry, but that's some pretty extreme hyperbole there. Season 8 had its issues, sure, and I had some big problems with Season 7 that I've eluded to in this thread. I'l even go so far as to agree that I was a bit disappointed and the season fell short of my hopes, for sure. But worst writers in TV history? There's some trully awful television out there, you can't possibly be serious.Anomaly Inc on YouTube has been doing a series of videos analyzing the episodes from Season 8 to prove his opinion that D&D are perhaps the worst writers for TV/film in history.
This is kind of where I'm coming at it, too. I suspect one of the problems here is GRRM has created a situation where even he doesn't know how he's going to end it, which is why we STILL don't have a Winds of Winter. He knows where he wants to go, he just doesn't know how to get there. I'm not sure there IS an ending that would respect the scenario Martin created in the books, that would be satisfying to the fans. Even before the show ran out of books, there was a lot of speculation Martin may have painted himself into a corner. And as far as how the fan reaction will be to GRRM's ending, I've heard a lot of people upset about Dance With Dragons already, so they'll probably be pissed off too.The way the GoT commentary goes, it doesn't sound so much like GoT ended badly, but that there is a GoT ending that exists out there that is brilliant and ties everything together perfectly and makes everyone happy, and these two fucktards didn't give it to us. It's a weird bit of psychology. I'm not sure why it's now and not previously, if it can all be chalked up to social media circlejerks or just how much the internet has become a medium for anger-based content.
I'd rewatch this season 10 times over Suicide Squad or Ghostbusters 2016 again, two other recent failures that got nowhere near the crying but were vastly worse
Hate to resurrect this, but yeah, this is almost exactly how I feel.Until a month ago I only saw bits and pieces of the show here and there when friends/family were watching and I knew the memes.
I just finished watching the whole thing, I liked it!
It was quite interesting as I knew a lot of key points up front from just having heard people talk about it over the years, but it was still fun and enjoyable overall.
I mean, I thought the shocking red wedding was gonna be Joffreys one
For me the last 2 seasons (and especially the last one) were lacking, with my biggest question mark being sansa and arya suddenly getting back at littlefingers own game.
but all the outrage, come on, it’s a tv show
I do get it though, people have followed it all closely for years etc, so I guess they were a bit more invested compared to me binging it all away in a few weeks.
Then again, I’m still pretty rational about The Last Jedi too, so I’m not easily losing my shit I guess.
