        I agree. What can you really expect when the buildup for over 7 seasons has evolved to the point to where the name of the series has set the stage for all the Thrones to come forward and confront each other. Some gotta win some gotta lose. Good time Charlie’s got the blues. In other words there is no way to blow up the plot and make everyone happy.

          There was no ending that was going to make people happy. Frankly the ending isn't the problem here, it was the final season that they rushed through at break neck pace after everyone waited so long for it to get here. Honestly the best GOT seasons were the ones that followed the books closely. At the start the series was pretty spot on with the books. The further it got from the books though the less impact it felt. Sort of a prop to George RR Martin and just how good he is when his books actually come out. It's why I'll still read the final two books intently whenever they come out.

              I wonder how many people drop their HBO subscriptions now that Game of Thrones is done. I'll give some of their other shows coming out a shot but Starz might be a better use of my money.

                We are about to drop ours. My wife is already asking about it. I put it off for a day so she will probably cancel it tonight.

                  It is just a matter of time for me. I really don't see much on the horizon that is interesting. I watch a couple of shows now, like Barry and John Oliver. But other than that, not a whole lot. Don't think I have watched a movie on there in ages.

                    I mean like Westworld season 1 was great but season 2 kind of lost me. Barry is fun to watch when I'm bored but it's not really a show I look forward to. My wife and I watched Pretty Little Liars and I'm sure she will want to watch season 2 but I'm sure it will be a let down. As far as movies it seems like they all have the same movies and with redbox we usually watch them before they hit HBO anyway. Game of Thrones was really the main reason I kept paying for HBO. Now that it's over I'm not sure I'll continue going back and watching old episodes. So it sort of seems pointless to me. I'm guessing HBO is going to see a big dip now that Game of Thrones is done. The prequel better get here relatively quick or they will take a big hit.

                      No way I am watching a prequel.

                        I have seen the first two episodes of Chernobyl. It's good but a little slow so far.

                            From George R.R. Martin circa 2011:

                            “We watched [Lost] every week trying to figure it out, and as it got deeper and deeper I kept saying, ‘They better have something good in mind for the end. This better pay off here.’ And then I felt so cheated when we got to the conclusion.” Martin also cites the Lost ending as the type of mistake he fears making with his own show, saying, “I want to give them something terrific. What if I f— it up at the end? What if I do a Lost? Then they’ll come after me with pitchforks and torches.”

                            • Black Mirror apparently has three episodes in its Season 5. Haven't watched any yet.
