By die hard you mean mostly book readers who are some of the biggest high and mighty cvnts on the planet? Are you talking about that egregious group of tools? Danny has always been dull after season/book 1. Nothing about her has changed. She was never written poorly, even now that hasn't changed. Her character makes sense, she's just not a very interesting character because she has dragons to solve all her issues.

Sansa is a well written character, but that Littlefinger trap was clunky writing. But that also makes sense when the actual author is fvcking off writing literally every thing except the story he made too big to finish. Yara is not a main character. She's fine, but her role is too minuscule to matter. Arya has been sloppy, but that's with the books as well. GRRM like the double Ds don't know what to do with her post book 3.

None of this has anything to do with that dumbass stronk wymen nonsense you said.

Who cares about plotholes when you have CGI dragons!

Who cares if Varys and Tyrion have been performing the same eunuch joke/midget joke repetotoire for two consecutive seasons---im retarded so its fresh to me!

Who cares about Sansa's refusal to tell her military commander brother about the secret deus ex machina army he could have had at his disposal. 1000s of men died because of this but muh qween in da norf rite? Lets not mention it again.

Who cares that the formerly distinct and diverse costumes have become monotonous? Why wouldnt every frey wear the same hat, every northerner be dressed in the same brown and grey leather ensemble? Makes 100% sense




Look man if you like the show thats fine, just dont pretend it has any merit. Its garbage made to appeal to the reddit and tumblr crowd.
You're an idiot. Probably an annoying-ass dude IRL.

I didnt claim that characters dying was a reason the shows quality has fallen off a cliff you illiterate spastic. You said it was the best acted show on tv, i contenddd that all of the good actors are either dead or relegated to the sidelines a'la Dinklage and Alfie Allen.



These are the types of low IQ dumdums who sperg out at the idea someone criticising their awful show

You're probably just a kid so it's a waste of time to go back and forth. Every single thing that you posted makes you sound like a whiny little bitch in my eyes.

Read what you posted again and tell me that you aren't complaining about characters being killed and complaining about costumes. Who in the fuck even cares.


If you don't like the show then don't watch it you whiny little bitch. You aren't impressing anyone with your whiny regurgitated faggotry.

He's mad about the costumes going black? I thought that was a clear case of symbolism = black = people fighting at the wall vs Wildlings (and WW) = everyone leaving their colors/titles behind to band together. I don't know GRRM will do the same, but I don't see him finishing the story either way. He will finish the next book and someone will write the ending based on cliff notes after his death. His latest interview shows he doesn't know how to finish it all.

I dont watch the show. You are the whiny ****** who cant handle criticism of his fggy dragons and ice zombies show.

You need to learn the difference between critcism and complaining. i.e I may criticise your parents for their decision to procreate despite both having down syndrome, i am not complaining about it.

It is naive of me to expect an enthusiatic got watcher to understand the difference.

Azor Ahai killed his wife Nissa by pulling Lightbringer from her heart after stabbing her which represents Rhaegar impregnating Lyanna then Lyanna dying of childbirth which means:

Jon Snow = Lightbringer, the one who will end the Great Other

I doubt he would make it that metaphoric. It's a bridge too far.

The colour change happened a long time ago. Every bolton in winterfell was dressed the same. Not a shred of red or pink to be found. Im also not mad about it, im just stating that the costume and set design has been on as steep a downwarđ trajectory as the writing.

I have the first four books read part of the first book and I'm sure down the road I'll revisit this world by reading them all. Out of nostalgia 10 years down the road if anything.

The series is probably going to get the wheel of time treatment I doubt GRRM will finish the series. He already has the core story mapped out but it doesn't look like he'll get around to it. He's executive producing a ton of shows and seems busy with a lot of other projects highly doubtful that fat boy sits down to finish two or three more books in the series.

Then why the fvck are you in this thread complaining? Do you really think people value your opinion so much that you must let us know how awful you think the show is? GTFO.

Millions of people around the world enjoy GoT, and it is BY FAR the best thing on television right now. Sure, it's gone downhill a bit starting with Season 5, but that doesn't mean it's all of a sudden terrible. GoT is the benchmark for which all current shows are compared to.
