You idiots have ruined this entire thread. It use to be fun. Then egos and hurt feelings started popping up as the series comes to its end.

This has happened every season for the past 3 on this thread.

This happens to every massively popular show on TexAgs. It becomes too big, there are too many posts to keep up with, and it will always regress into ridiculousness and people yelling at clouds. It's always unfortunate.

I'm not whining. I made a simple observation.

If I thought this thing tanked a couple of seasons ago, as most of you complainers do, I would have pulled the ripcord a couple of seasons ago.

That's how most people deal with things that disappoint them. They move on to better usage of their time.


It was kind of a slow burn to this point. I had a lot of complaints about last season, but overall I get they had to move the story along and the events were still epic.

This season is so bad on so many levels that it's just disappointing.

Maybe a few of the complaints are petty, I'll give you the Starbucks cup for example.

But there are many, many massive plot holes and characters arcs that make zero sense that are very valid.
Most the "plot holes" you mentioned were bogus. Jamie is not going to hang out with Brianne while his sister and brother fight to the death a thousand miles away. It makes total sense that he's want to get there. Same thing for Arya not STILL talking about how she killed the NK long after they cleaned up the bodies, set up funeral pyres, etc. By then, it would have been old news.

So that is the army Dany brought with her to the meeting? For a second I thought it might have been highgarden, is the only reason I ask. Just didn't remember her bringing that big of a force with her.

It's a TV show...

They don't have infinite time and money to make everything perfect.

Maybe the CGI didn't look right on a few scenes so they cut it a little short... Big deal they used darkness to hide a bunch of fake zombies.

Since 2008 Marvel has released something like 22 movies leading up to End Game. Since 2011 GoT's is going to end up with 70+ episodes.

It's pretty amazing that they have been able to do what they have with the time and resources that they have been given.

Last nights episode missed the mark so many times. But I'm not even mad this week. Episode 3 was the culmination of everything wrong with D&D these last 2 seasons.

Just ready for it to end.
You can just end it right now. Just don't watch anymore. It's not that hard.
When I was in middle school I walked out of a terrible movie and waited for my mom to pick me up. $2 in the arcade was a better use of my time.

You know, opportunity cost. Basic economics.
They had arcades in your time? I thought they didn't even have electricity yet.

I think the quality of the show definitely took a hit after the source material ran out. But I find it weird how people think this season is so much worse than last season. Both are not as good as season 3. But 8 is about equal to 7 in my point of view.

Far more visually stunning, but worse on story.

Or Walt's nazi-killing machine gun trunk. Someone could pick the plausibility of that setup and scene apart 6 ways to Sunday instead of simply accepting that it was just pretty ****ing awesome. A small dose of implausibility with a huge dose of awesome effect.

To a large extent, that's the problem. It's not the effects (which we all agree take time), it's the writing. You can't CGI yourself across writing gaps and lazy/predictable story lines.

Mythbusters did a show on that, and unlike some other things in the show, that one came out as plausible. The machine gun wasted everybody in the room. I think the better example is when he threw that explosive psuedo-meth at the ground in season one. But still.. it was awesome.

(agreed with your point overall.)

But there are many, many massive plot holes and characters arcs that make zero sense that are very valid.
Most the "plot holes" you mentioned were bogus. Jamie is not going to hang out with Brianne while his sister and brother fight to the death a thousand miles away. It makes total sense that he's want to get there. Same thing for Arya not STILL talking about how she killed the NK long after they cleaned up the bodies, set up funeral pyres, etc. By then, it would have been old news.


The plot hole isn't that he left Brienne, it's that he didn't go back to KL right away. Either with Tyrion or with Jon. Why have him be like "Yeah I'm gonna sit this one out" for the first few hours?

Right, sure someone could put a machine gun in a trunk and waste some people. I just mean there are folks on this thread that would take the improbable parts (parking the car how he did, getting it the perfect angle/distance to perfectly cover the building, etc) and shred it

that last pic just shows the absurdity of the scene. Cersei is not one to let her enemies walk away unscathed. even if we assume, they are too close for the scorpions to aim downward (how did they get that close in the first place) they are all standing there in archery range.
DannyDuberstein
How long do you want to ignore this user?
AG
I think a whole lot of people would be happier if they just backed everyone further away. I'd say the intent was for Dany to be out of regular archery range, and for Drogon to be out of scorpion range. But that's a long-ass way for us to watch a midget walk. And the visual just isn't as good. So they compromised by filming it closer while intending it to be out of range, and it left room for people to bich

I took it this way:

He has turned on Cersei (after all she tried to kill him), but still loved her to the point that he didn't want to be part of killing her. He thought that Dani had the force to do it. But when he heard that Dani suffered a major setback and that Cersei may actually win, he got on his horse to do his part.

Yeah, this is the same woman that blew up a large section of the city to rid herself of 3 people. The charade of having her almost signal the archers was a waste of time, too. I don't think anyone believed for a second she'd have Tyrion killed right there.

Agreed. My bad on misunderstanding your point.
DannyDuberstein

This is how I took it. Initially drawn to stay with Brienne, but once getting actual news of the **** getting thick and the people he just fought and bled with to save the realm of men getting hammered by Cersei, the anger and hate inside him comes to a boil and pushes him to action.

Not all that unlike when he became kingslayer. Didn't want to do it. Ended up feeling compelled.
