A part from the nytimes interview with sophie turner, she said if you think season 8 was garbarage then you’re disrespectful :thumbsup:
The fan reaction this season has been much more negative than in previous seasons. Were you surprised by some of the vitriol?
Honestly, I’m not surprised. People always have an idea in their heads of how they want a show to finish, and so when it doesn’t go to their liking, they start to speak up about it and rebel.
The thing about “Game of Thrones” that’s always been amazing is the fact that there’s always been crazy twists and turns, right from Season 1 with Ned’s beheading. So Daenerys becoming something of the Mad Queen — it shouldn’t be such a negative thing for fans. It’s a shock for sure, but I think it’s just because it hasn’t gone their way.
All of these petitions and things like that — I think it’s disrespectful to the crew, and the writers, and the filmmakers who have worked tirelessly over 10 years, and for 11 months shooting the last season. Like 50-something night shoots. So many people worked so, so hard on it, and for people to just rubbish it because it’s not what they want to see is just disrespectful.
what a retarded take lol, fuck her if she actually said this
first of all, people who pay for a product have every right to voice their dissatisfaction for it, no one, not the writers, nor the cast and crew, are doing it out of the goodness of their heart, they're doing it for money from the people who watch it, sophie fucking turner has certainly received more from the show than we did, not that people are even really criticising the cast and crew anyway? the solipsistic idiot lol, the blame is pretty much solely being placed on the writers who absolutely deserve it
second, people liked the plot earlier on because it was well done and believable, even the "crazy twists and turns" made plenty of sense in retrospect
a main character didn't have insane plot armour and is executed? holy fuck wasn't expecting that, i guess that's the kind of show this is
main characters assassinated to end a war by some people they'd just recently spurned? holy fuck wasn't expecting that, but makes sense
an arrogant man, drunk on vengeance and distracted, throws a fight he thinks hes already won? holy fuck wasn't expecting that, but once again, makes sense
main characters survive for like 15 minutes in an insane scenario, surrounded by thousands of zombies that just tore through a whole army, with no explanation? yeah fuck off, we already established that isn't the sort of show this is supposed to be
unsullied and dothraki back in full force after being nearly annihilated, with no explanation? yeah fuck off
dany chimping out on women and children without sufficient build up showing how unstable she is? yeah fuck off
drogon, who's been portrayed as essentially a dull, domesticated beast for the entire show suddenly understands the metaphorical significance of the iron throne? yeah fuck off
bran, barely even human, "I can't be lord of anything" stark elected as king without hesitation? yeah fuck off
it went from fleshed out, and refreshingly realistic and internally consistent to an incredibly rushed and illogical flaming hot pile of garbage with dialogue to match
I can't understand why anyone isn't pissed off at the showThis post was edited by Dominate2 on May 22 2019 10:29am
