How the Game of Thrones Showrunners Pissed Off the Fans… Again! (Nerdist News w/ Amy Vorpahl)

    How did they get their big breaks? They'd worked on some films before, but crap ones like that messy X-Men one. HBO ended up entrusting them with a huge budget to make GoT, and from this it sounds like they needed a lot of hand holding. I'm not saying they're not without talent, because overall the show is excellent, final seasons except, but they had no pedigrees going into it.

    Well, Amy, as to your question; I haven't even watched GoT, why would I watch its spin-offs LOL that Q&A sounds like an elaborate prank considering the reputation GoT managed to get, but hearing from all the backlash from the Finale, it makes sense. I'd rather stick to The Mandalorian and The Witcher and any other series with clear narrative structure and roadmaps

    The last season was not on the same level of quality as the first few, but it still remained a good fantasy show. I understand the disappointment, but to say it was terrible is over exaggeration.

    I am now convinced more than ever that GRRM is all part of this scam as well. That's why he picked THEM and let them try to end what he has no idea how to end. This is like Lost, just throw a bunch of stuff out there, and then never really explain any of it plausibly, like what happened to the dinosaur that ate the pilot in episode 1. All this time an effort breaking the books down and coming up with theories, it is all just stuff GRRM thought seemed cool.

    Best example of talentless white men failing upwards. Beinoff wrote the X-men movie with a mouth less Deadpool and they allowed him to make this show. And NOW THEY HAVE 260 MILLION DOLLAR DEAL WITH NETFLIX WHAT THE FUCK

    Don't know why people are surprised season 8 sucked, GoT was bad from season 5 onwards. D&D are hacks with no experience in TV.

    I don't get what the big deal is. GRRM has given up on this story. He gave up after book 3. Book 4 and 5 seemed little more that just randomness happening here and there. White walkers are barely mentioned passed the opening pages of the series. He has no idea where he is going with story. At least HBO was trying to provide some sort of closure to fans. I have my doubts that we will ever see another written word from Martin.

    Fallen? You people are still obsessed with S8 or the overstated the “ show was crap as of S5”. Given the fact that so many people made so much money from talking about the show and theorizing what the meaning of every sentence George wrote in his books, then we the viewers understand that you Tubers are just pissed that the show didn’t continue and continue. I mean you folks are still making videos bitching about the show, right. Don’t fret. When the upcoming prequel ends you will have more stuff to complain about, eg why didn’t the show us Valyria, why don’t we know anything about Aeneas The Dreamer, What happened in Dorne etc etc

    I love the cast and the crew- everyone who made it amazing, sooooo much, thank you to all of you ❤️❤️❤️ Feel betrayed by D & D for taking such an epic story as if it meant nothing in the end and have admitted to it . I’m sorry, but I love a Song of Ice and Fire as much as Lord of the Rings. Peter Jackson took that seriously, read the books, they should have asked him to finish GOT. He would have got it right. The ending was an insult to all the characters in the show, George R.R Martin’s epic writing and books, I hold those in the same esteem as J.R.R Tolkien. You wouldn’t insult Tolkien, so don’t insult George R.R Martin and his amazing fantasy world and characters.

    They are right about the fantasy writing. Like Tyrion having crazy eyes and the Targaryens being unnaturally bright complexion. It is a huge turn off for people. It just the psychology of humans. Someone could write a thesis on the subject

    This can’t be true :O I heard that when D&D asked George if the could make a series from his books, he said yes if they could answer ”Who Jon snows mother is”. I also heard that the their ”goal” when they started was that they wanted to get so far into the books so the could make the ”Red wedding” episode because they both loved that part in the book and everything else they made beyond that was just a huge bonus. Was all that just s lie? :(

    They just have no respect. For the fans or the actors or anyone. I'm also so sick of the "we ran out of source material" garbage too. There's like 12 or 13 seasons worth of story in the five books that exist. They could have been more selective about which plot lines they included in the adaptation. They just didn't give a fuck.

    This series is DEAD TO ME after the horrific season 8. Nothing makes sense anymore. No point in watching of the spinoffs as it will remind me of the bitter taste the original had left me with. It's like reading a manuscript to uncover a secret only to realize you've been played when the secret isn't even given.
