Yeah. The producers have openly stated that they're looking to wrap up the series so that they can move on to their next project. So, they're cramming everything into this last season and closing the book on Game of Thrones. I still enjoy the show but I really don't consider it to be canon anymore. I'm just really hoping that GRRM finishes his books (though I won't hold my breath).

So lame. GOT could be one of the best shows ever.
Why "try to finish it" so you can move onto another "probably" crappy show?

This feels like season 6 of Lost. Such a let-down.

Anyone read Jordan's Wheel of Time?
Yeah, Jordan died before finishing his life's work...

yes, it took Jordan's wife, his editor and Brandon Sanderson to finish it several years after his death...

my wife is also watching GOT for her first time and even she noticed how the last few episodes of season 7 seemed rushed especially after I told her all the story lines finish in season 8.

Without any hints, she even guessed the walkers would kill a dragon... seriously, she guessed it on the first try...

It'll be interesting to see the spin-off shows once this is all over. The current show runners won't be involved so it'll be a fresh take on the subject matter. The current producers may be tired of GoT but HBO isn't.

Wait, there's FTL travel in GoT? Haven't read the books (nor do I plan to).

nah, i'm just exaggerating how it takes a month's travel to go from king's landing to winterfell
but when it's expedient to the plot, you can travel the entire length of the continent in a night.

plot contrivances and lazy writing turns a great show into the "walking dead"...

Yeah they really screwed the pooch with last season and done of the choices they made. Even made it seem like running for help when they were trapped on the ice was a quick thing to do.

Looking forward to next season, but they are FiOS are being a PITA and not letting me redeem my points against HBO get. Not paying all that money a month for one show I like.
