Game Of Thrones Fans, thoughts so far on Season 8

Recommended Posts

What a great episode!! Wish it was a little bit brighter so I could see more but I was still on the edge of my seat the whole time. I didn't see the ending coming at all, and when it did I thought she was dead. Well done GOT!

While I enjoyed last night's episode, I'm not super happy about how the story is unfolding... basically the whole white walker thing is a giant plot thread that just gets Jon out of his obligation to the Night's Watch prior to the final war for the Seven Kingdoms and equalizes Dany's army prior to having to face Cersei's?  Meh.

I expected worse in terms of who would be killed off. And certainly an unexpected outcome. But I thought this GOT's worse episode in terms of direction. I record it and watch the next morning and several times I fast-forwarded this one out of boredom.

In the end I Think TYRION will be on the Iron throne with Sansa as his queen. everyone else will be dead Cersei will wipe them all out in one big battle but Arya will be in disguise and kill her off leaving the throne to Tyrion

I think you could have dropped the whole dragon storyline and it wouldnt have changed a thing...they played no real part in the war...maybe in a warmer climate??

And talk abut under developed....the whole white walker king thing...

.I thought maybe we'd get a little backstory but 7 seasons...winter is coming winter is coming.... boom....winter is over...now back to our regularly scheduled plotting and scheming.....

I havent seen past season 4 or 5 yet. Dont have HBO nor netflix bluray, just streaming. But maybe that might change since I do miss out on a lot of stuff and I dont do torrents. So I am avoiding spoilers as much as possible. Some time in the future, when I have time, I will watch the rest. In the meantime, I'm avoiding reading anything in this thread like its full of... well... I was going to say something slightly political but I wont.

Yeah the HBO writers just didn't have that depth. Season 7 & 8 have "meh" compared to the first 6 seasons. There was so much build up to the white walker army. It would've been much more enjoyable if say they fought them on different fronts to the point they all get holed up at Kings Landing and then sure you can kill the Night King. but all that rave, all them dragons and then just pooof.

Found this article that has some pretty good insight to the episode. it also has sub links leading to other answers. like what happened to Rhaegal and what happened to ghost (jons animals)

So far they changed my thinking on the episode and perhaps it was the darkness....which also has a lot to do with the actual streaming I'm finding out....like 1080 isn't really 1080 if the stream isnt good, so I think I might try it again tonite.

Anyhow....I found some of these sub articles enlightening.

OLED is great for deeper blacks, unfortunately the stream is only 1080p so it had to be upscaled for my 4K. The blacks had wavy patterns where there was transition between moonlight and the pitch dark. 

 

Non-IPS, LCD people, I feel for you.

I think the writers problem is that GRRM didn't finish the books. They've been great at adapting the existing books, but don't really know how to write what's in GRRM's head.
