Game of Thrones fans petition for HBO to remake season 8 following controversial episode

Yeah it's rushed and everything being wrapped up pretty simple and unsurprising. But these partitions are dumb.

I don't see the problem overall with dany either, makes sense, but maybe needed a bit more time for the full turn.

I don't know that someone taking less than a minute to sign a petition is necessarily being "riled up".
That just makes the whole thing seem even more moot, if it takes so little effort. And in any case, these are people taking time out of their day to sign a petition and write a statement. Less than a minute is downplaying that fact.

If they ever do remake the last two seasons I hope it's only after the remaining books are out so it can be a proper adaptation. From the sound of it Martin's pretty far into TWOW to the point that a release in the next couple years isn't too unlikely. Replace season seven with that. Then hopefully it won't take longer than five or six years to finish the last book. Remake season 8 as an adaptation of it. Full ten episode seasons (or longer). Splice with existing footage as needed. Assuming cast and crew are alive and well there's like a ten year window to make it happen. Hey, Lord of the Rings has extended cuts, The Hobbit was bloated with lots of material that wasn't even in the book and retcons are more common than ever now so it's not like a project like this would be out of the realm of possibility. But I would only care IF the reshot seasons were proper adaptations of the upcoming books.

If you admit it seems moot and takes little effort, then downplaying it rather than framing it as people being riled up seems to be the proper response, right?

I hate season 8, but this type of shit is just too much. People need to not get so invested in fiction. They should focus more on fixing real life than fixing a TV show.
My life is fine, I just want to shat on some creators for fun.

I mean, almost everyone that put the name on this stupid petition know HBO not gonna remake anything.

ps. I didn't sign, the show was shit since season 5. (laugh while rolling)
