  1. I didn't hate the end of GoT as much as others but it was mediocre, and far below the quality of the rest of the series. Personally I split the series into two halves, before and after Tywin's death. After he died, being the best character IMO, things started going down hill

  2. I think I"m getting sick of fantasy countries ending up democratic or decentralized. We live in the reality of democracy. I like the fantasy of kings because I will never experience it as a modern dude, and an American. Not like I'd advocate for it, but kings and fantasy are cool.

  3. S1-4 Almost perfect television.
    S5 Starting to unravel
    S6 Really Good Episodes
    S7 Really Bad Episodes
    S8 Awful

  4. Not sure how you managed to include season 5 together with 1 and 4. 5 Is just as awful as 6 and beyond, but it takes you an entire season to realise that things are now going downhill and it's not gonna stop.

  5. wow this was not the video to watch to fall asleep to. now MY blood is boiling comparing the amazing feeling of the first few seasons with the disappointment of the end

  6. you forget the part when they talked about 'the war'for a couple seasons,litterly everyone waited for that big LOTR war. the imp went to battle get nocked out instantly 5sec later woke up oh your dad came he won gg

  7. In my opinion:
    Season 1 – 95%
    Season 2 – 85%
    Season 3 – 100%
    Season 4 – 100%
    Season 5 – 85%
    Season 6 – 95%
    Season 7 – 75%
    Season 8 – 50%

    Overall: 68.5/80 = 85%

  8. I disagree? I didn't love the ending but 7/10 overall? Really?! I would call season 8 a 7/10 and the show a a whole a 9.9999999/10. That's just me tho

  9. The worst part is that not only D@D suck at writing but the reason, why season 8 is so rushed is that first, they get bored of it or rather didn't know what to do next and second(actually more importantly) they´ve got an offer from Disney so they fuck off…R.R. Martin expected 13 seasons!!! But because of the reasons mentioned earlier, they run off of this project and finish it. Instead, they could give it to other producers to finish this serial properly, which, for reasons mentioned earlier, would everyone understood and nothing of this would happen…BUT no…

  10. 13:14 Didn´t Bran said to Sansa in season 7 that he cannot be lord of anything because he is the Three-Eyes Raven now?

  11. Wow, thanks, glad I didn't waste 10 years of my life. Oh, yeah, and stop using the sacred name of the honorable Neanderthals in a derogatory manner.

  12. Your argument seems to mainly revolve around 'why?', 'why didn't they do this thing i wanted…?' / 'why didn't this theory i endorsed come to light…?'.
    So many people argued that the showrunners lost their skill for shock, surprise and subversion, yet everyone also complains that they didn't do what they expected they'd do.

    * The gods didn't play a massive part because they're gods, most of them probably don't exist, and the only one that shows the most presence – The Lord Of Light – did do a lot (revive heroes, create the wall of fire, create a shadow baby etc). I know it's fantasy, but i'd like to think there is some sense of restrained reality, us as humans have been around for thousands of years and not one person can conclusively proof the existence of gods, so why should all of a sudden all the gods of Westeros have a very real and very present part to play.

    * I don't get the argument that nobody died in the Battle of Winterfell. If you actually tally up the numbers a vast amount of more characters die than any other battle. Take the top 5 battles: Battle of Blackwater – 0 prominent characters die. Hardhome – 0 prominent characters die. Battle of the Bastards – 1 prominent character dies, Ramsey (joined by smaller characters like Rickon and Wun Wun). Battle of Castle Black – 1 prominent character dies, Ygritte. (joined by smallers characers like Grenn and Pyp). Battle of Winterfell – 4 prominent characters die, Jorah, Theon, Night King and Melisandre (joined by smaller characters like Edd, Viserion, Lyanna and Beric (arguably quite a big character this season)).

    * I don't see the whole raped and flogged through the street as quick character development. I see the raped seen as a real demonstration of how cruel Ramsey is, and how utterly bleak and detestable Sansa and Theon's situation is. It was a hard scene to watch, but GoT has never shy'd away from the idea of rape and touchy subjects related to sex. It wasn't like it was glorifying it, if anything I felt it was a brutal reminder of how detestable such an action was, it's something that should never happen to anyone and can severely damage someone for life. Instead you got an army of easy offended viewers turning a blind eye to a fairly serious issue. People who state that Sansa's development into a hardened and calculated woman was purely due to that scene clearly haven't been paying attention to her story arc what so ever. What her time with Ramsey achieved was being that tipping point for a multitude of reasons, yet everyone points at that one scene as says 'Oh Sansa's now no longer this innocent little girl because of that…', instead of looking at someone who's gone through some of the hardest trials and tribulations only to be locked in a marriage with a psychopath creating this poignant period in her arc where everything comes to a head and she understandably changes and evolves. The rape isn't a glorified deux ex machina, it's a horrible disgusting life altering event that would change even the strongest willed person.

    Don't get me wrong you do make good points as well, but I just feel it occasionally falls into the category of popular unfleshed out opinions that I hear repeated again and again. Rather than a subjective look at why those decisions were made, the thematic, stylised and woven subtext and how the story differed from the multitude of theory crafting that was honestly never going to be on the money.
    And I'm not without critique, while I liked a majority of the story beats the last season was to short, 5 episodes on White Walkers and 5 episodes on the battle for the throne would've given so much time for airing out plot points. Subtly was a bit wonky – Euron was way over the top and just obnoxious/Jon and Daenary's relationship was a little rushed and unfleshed out/Rhaegal dying suddenly was pretty jarring (even though I though the shock factor was fairly consistent with GoT – I don't mention Daenary's turn, because to me it felt like the longest thread running throughout the whole series. I've been rewatching from the beginning and she always resorted to brash, aggressive and inculcated outbursts (Gates of Qarth, Crucifying the masters, Burning the Khals), only difference is we'd normally be routing for her and she'd normally have someone to advise her to take another option, or compromise, but by the end she's lost everything and is unwilling to listen to that same advise.

    Bit of a long one, but just wanted to put it out as I'd like to see a bit more open conversation revolving around a few more varied opinions.

  13. not only did one of my favorite youtubers make a video about GOT, but he also had the correct opinion. 10/10 video

  14. UBER that part where you said what if john was cremated deadass 1 for 1 what i thought should of happened when we got that Targarian dropped on us surely instead of dropping the ball with their no source material dumb fkery they just got George R R Martin down some amphetamines so he can smash out the last books
    Love ya work brother

  15. completely fucking agree, having binged this last season 2 nights ago im still fucking fuming out my cock hole at how horrendous this last season was. As soon as John was brought back to life every character that you cared about grew so much fucking plot armour that the show wasn't worth watching anymore. I remember, as someone that hadnt even seen the show, the number of people crying and ragging and taking days off of school from John's death. All of that emotion that people feel and what do they do? WHAT DO THEY FUCKING DO? They teach us that sometimes the religious bullshit that has been nothing but religious bullshit throughout the whole show, with the exception of that random cult guy that keeps reviving, was actually completely legit if it means bringing back a character people became borderline suicidal over the death of. Fuck the last 2 seasons. Nothing but killing off side characters that you have no real emotional attachment to until the last episode of the last season where they went "well there's nothing actually lost if we kill them now because they dont have several other seasons where people will want these characters to be alive"
    the last 2 seasons make me want to read the books because it's obvious that the books care more about the depth of each character rather than just meeting whatever plot points they think will be cool and using random lazy plot points to get there.
