yeah this is ridic

it does get me thinking though, there will be inevitable "fan edits" that will be hailed as amazing whether they actually are or not, to "prove their point"

I wonder if I would have it in me to tackle. would take months and many many gigs. but might be a fun side project.

The books are never going to be finished so there's no way they're remaking the show again.

They're better off making more spin-offs to expand the universe, a lot of it canon to the show. GOT Season 8 has felt small.

Maybe an unpopular opinion, but I don't really have a problem with the petition existing or people signing it. Something like this can come off as petty and entitled. But the petition isn't a contract, it isn't going to force anyone to do anything no matter how many signatures it gets. It's meant as a proof of how many people want this and are disappointed. It's for the artists to decide how to react to that.

The level of effort it takes to sign this petition is very little, so mistakingly thinking that there's a huge level of outrage from some of the signers is not entirely accurate. Some people might see this, think "yeah it sucks, I'd like to see it better" sign it, and move on.

Put my vote down for "Really? The white chick who was posing like she was on some BS Africa service trip is actually an imperalist who supports war crimes? I find this fact utterly impossible to fathom and may require an entirely new brain to replace this one, which is clearly and obviously defective"



A friend the other day pointed out this kind of picture is for white girls on social media what "shirtless with a fish" is for white dudes, and I can't see it any other way any more.

GoT s1 : Dany burns someone
GoT s2 : Dany burns more people
GoT s3 : Dany burns more people
GoT s4 : Dany crucifies people
GoT s5 : Dany burns more people
GoT s6 : Dany burns more people
GoT s7 : Dany burns more people

Fans: I sleep.

GoT s8 : Dany burns people.

Fans: Oooo noooooo! CHARACTER ASSASINATION

If only... someone had warned them...

People keep going around saying this shit, but I have a feeling they haven't really been paying attention. Ask yourself, who were the people she burnt in S1-7? Were any of them random innocent civilians? No, they were not. Context matters.

I mean she locked up her dragons after one of them killed a kid, ffs.

Daenerys destroying the bells and getting even more crazier

How do you know that little kid who got lit up in KL wouldn't eventually grow up to own slaves?

This is so hilarious. I suppose they can go ahead and have their outrage while the rest us just shake our heads.
I now ignore GoT threads like I ignore Star Wars and Star Trek threads. Fandom taking this kind of stuff waaaay too seriously is just ridiculous to me.

This is kinda funny, and sad. And I say that as someone who thinks season 8 has dropped the ball so hard it's currently en route to the Earth's core.

If people get to make silly nonsensical internet petitions then I get to make silly nonsensical jokes about those people.
 
Yikes, the hubris of media fandom.

Those petitioning to have hundreds of people forced to remake some bullshit because they didn't like it need to grow the fuck up and move on with life, like those who make the show wanted to do 3 years ago.

The internet had a totalitarian problem.

They need to quit being slaves to the fallocy of sunk costs.

This might be the first online petition like this that I agree with. It’s unbelievable just how badly they dropped the ball in the final season. First time I’ve seen people react to character deaths with “Wait, really?”

So, honest question in response to your honesty: why do you think you have any right at all to ask these creators to “redo” their art?

Jeez, even though this petition is probably not going to accomplish it's goal of a reshoot, at least it allows for another way for dissatisfied fans to voice their concerns.

What really surprises me is so many posters here bagging on these fans. "Waste of time." Lol why don't some of you show some empathy. The actors themselves know it's bullshit but some of you want to pretend this is actually some great ending with completely adequate writing and nothing but butt hurt super fans not getting the ending they want.

This is literally the only GOT thread from the past several weeks that I haven't immediately hit the ignore thread button on because the vitriol and outrage (while...mostly deserved) has just ramped up to absurd proportions that any sort of conversation is impossible, and the only reason why I didn't ignore this thread was because I wanted to make yet another joke at GRRM's expense

This is an incredibly stupid oversimplification of what went down.

A small fraction of the fans theorized that she might turn evil (book readers mostly). Now that it happened in a totally nonsensical and lazy way, everyone and their mother comes out of the woodwork to tell fans they saw it a mile away

"Did you know she didnt pay off that parking ticket back in season 2?"

"Whoa dude, what a massive foreshadowing"

lol, unbelievable. And btw they should remake s8 and maybe s7 while they're at it then. The reception to this last ep is a culmination of them rushing and halfassing things for the last few seasons. Remaking a single ep is not going to fix that.

Asking them to remake anything is laughable.
