Surprised no one has started this thread yet. Episode 1 of Series 8 of Game of Thrones aired 3 days ago!

I binge watched the previous 7 series to make sure my memory was up to date before watching the new one. Worth every minute. Without giving anything away to those who have not yet seen it my favourite line was "My eyes have always been blue!" Also worth noting that the Ed mentioned by the whores is supposed to be the Ed you say singing in series 7. Jim Carroll would appreciate it :-)

We'll wait and binge this season when it's all finshed
and as usuall be completely confused for the first couple of episodes
until we partially remember who's who and what they've done to each other...

Now to spend the next few weeks in a bunker completely shut off from spoilers..

But there'll always be some inconsiderate media dick who smugly drops unexpected major spoilers
into completely unrelated news items...

Who supports who to survive
and who arrives at the throne?

It is Trump who wants Cersi
who is as cold as stone.

Nadler is for scholarly Samwell
Nunes is for magic dick Podrick

Giuliani is for Jamie
who goes straight to hell

And Tryion Jon and Daenerys
Ring strange wedding bells

In the end a terrible fight
Leave few alive after one night

This series won't end completely
Because it doesn't fade to white

Mind you, the loss of the Dothraki horde is a major blow :-( I did predict how the night king would end some weeks back and then thought, nah, they won't use the same ploy as Tolkien to remove the major threat on the battlefield.

I thought it ended quite well. They certainly could have stretched out this series for another couple of episodes but, all in all, they did a reasonable job. Leaves a number of possibilities for sequels but I got the impression they ran out of either money, steam or both!

Democracy was laughed off the stage.

The rightful king was 'locked up' in Castle Black.

The chosen King is a spooky all seeing legend with divine right power that is all stories and LEAVES action up to an old commitee.

Female leadership was harshly 'punished' for having PMS.


Yep this is an ending seemingly bought and paid for by fascist Trumpers


Only the Dragon behaved with integrity.

The dragon's reasoning was good. On seeing his mother sitting on a throne made of swords followed by seeing her with a sword stuck in her, he decided to burn all the other swords in the throne. :-)

If you looked like George Martin you might be compelled to torture, kill, rape and dislike women in your writting. I hope he got his break up out of his system by writting GOT.

Perhaps I am not viewing Fantasy in its proper light.

No spoilers but I'm going to talk about the final HBO episode. Apparently George R.R. Martin the author of the written series has been fine with the HBO finish which was not written by him. The video series departed from the written series a couple of seasons ago. The written series was still expanding with more characters and places and conflicts.
Strong points of the series was the fantastic visualization of the cities, keeps, structures including the Wall, and the best dragons ever cast. I didn't see a credit for 'dragon wrangler' but there were literally hundreds of little names flying by musta missed it.
Weak points were few. I really didn't buy the whole 'Hodor' episode. Really hokey. The ending was good considering the immense number of stories and sub-plots that had to be brought together, resolve, or successfully ignored.
If George Double R (first of his name) thinks he can resolve his version, more power to him and he will deserve a 'Ser'. May he live to give it a good finish. Then it can be filmed all over again, sorta like what happened with LOTR.

I like the women he writes, they are full-fledged people. Women are raped a lot in reality. He [Martin] tortures and kills men and women fairly equally. I don't het from the books that he hates women, just that he doesn't sugarcoat war.

The other thing about George R R Martin
is that he promised his readers
not only Winter, but Spring.

It's telling that the wildly successful television series
called a halt after getting through Winter.

Wonder if the Author and the television people
negotiated an understanding / compromise there.

I think the character of Cersei was severely short-shrifted.

Early in the series she coins the term: "Game of Thrones" and she gets many memorable scenes and quotes (I especially liked her rejoinder to Littlefinger's attempt at bragging: "Knowledge is Power").

She is the architect of a lot of the decision making out of King's Landing, until she runs afoul of the encroaching religious establishment.

She rightfully owned the moral complexities and ambiguities of the series, and deserved a bigger say in the development, which was denied her. In order to bring the tendrils and threads together to tie a string round the bouquet at the end she was turned into a simplistic baddie. And she had an ignominious end as a minor character that she did not deserve.
