Shit, why would he do that? That's work. This gig of creator/executive producer/hype man is waaaay easier.

HBO wants to keep that sweet GOT money train rolling? Pay me. Syfy want to base a show on a thirty year old book? Pay me. Hulu wants to do a show based on a series of short stories, only a few of which I wrote? Pay me. Oh, you want a book? Fuck you. I don't need you. I'm getting paid, bitch.

That fight is believed to be a battle scene which will last for an entire episode and is thought to be the longest consecutive action sequence in film history.
I sure am looking forward to that!

Ugh.

I feel as though this is not a prospect I am particularly looking forward to. It'll be cool to see visually, of course, but nonstop, mindless action evokes thoughts of Marvel movies...which bores to me no end. The show for me has always shone brightest in its character and world building, rather than the (admittedly excellent) fighting scenes.

Though I'll be happy to be proven wrong, a 90 minute fight scene strikes me as a chore to watch, more than anything.

Reunion episode with everyone getting back together except Cersei who I guess is no longer pregnant since she was drinking wine after she hooked up with Euron.

I found the Expanse book really disappointing so I never watched the show. Is it better?

Season 8 is coming. It will suck. I will watch it anyway. I think. The big question is whether the cumulative suckiness of the first few episodes will be enough to get me to not care and stop watching. I don't think so.
There was some serious idiocy, ranging from sending Bronn on a double-hit, to dragon voyeurism, to 'You need the bad pussy/arrogant man" to bad investing by the Iron Bank to everything else. Once again, though, it looked pretty good. If the writing is going to be so bad, there should be more fighting.

Kelly Ripa and some old queen are discussing the show right now. It has officially jumped the shark.

It unofficially did it two years ago, but now it’s official.

Meh.

Even the nudity was kinda dull. And Jesus, when did Tyrion start trusting his sister? Did the cold weather freeze his brain?

That thing with the Umber kid was some creepy shit, tho...
