Re: How long should the new series go on for?
Ideally, the model they should look towards is the Bond series. It allows them to make self contained films, but being able to march forward with sequels. No one wants another trilogy, let alone reboot atop of the Affleck helmed one.
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the B---- of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?"
One of the best soundtrack sections. Ever.
