    Well i agree with you but i will give the people who disliked the 8th season some slack.

    GOT is a WW phenomenon and people loved it passionately.

    Its the n1 series for many people so i see how they could feel betrayed.

    But still i think some overreacted.

    I don't hate them, but I do think that they started the drop off in quality in season 5 (what they did with Sansa there is one of the worst things in the show in my view), not in this season, and both season 7 and 8 have been way too rushed and really felt differently written than before.

    It was okay season, nothing wowed me though. Maybe its because I never fully loved GoT I enjoyed it and watched episodes in a one and done way. Now Spartacus when it was on Starz that show had me excited many times towards its end.

    Here here. I also love Spartacus, and I felt it had a much stronger and more logical ending.

    I don't have as much of an emotional connection to this show and these characters. I never did. I watch this show more as an observer and to know what everyone else was talking about.

    I think all the visuals and aesthetics of this show are second to none. The acting is clearly high quality. It's the writing I tend to find very bad, Michael Bay level.

    If there was a poll option between "like" and "disappointed" that includes both, that would be my vote.

    Some things worked for me, others didn't. Overall, I still enjoyed the ride, while realizing that it was a far cry from the quality of its beginning and how it could have (and should have) concluded if only:

    1) GRRM had finished the book series, or worked harder to furnish D&D with something more substantial to work from, instead of pursuing numerous distractions away from ASOIAF.
    2) D&D had truly been focused and interested in finishing it, instead of looking forward to Confederate.
    3) the final two seasons had been standard length to allow the major story arcs and themes to develop and conclude properly and believably.
    4) they had recruited superior and more competent writing assistance, preferably from GRRM himself.

    In my eyes, D&D proved to be fantastic producers. Game of Thrones is fantastic in almost every level: the costumes, the make up, the hair, the visual effects, cinematography, direction, production design.

    But they failed as writers and storytellers. That's just my opinion.

    That's exactly how I feel. Ever since season 6 the show took a downfall for me, with season 8 being basically the last straw. In the last three episodes people are saying what some of us have been saying for the last few years. So the suddenly shocked fanbase and the internet delirium is one of the few things I was able to enjoy this season. :p

    In my opinion, this is an overreaction. I believe HBO is on track to making another hit series, based on Martin's other work, Fire & Blood, Volume 1. I think GOT prequel is going to be a hit. It HAS to be from a HBO business perspective.
