It aint nothin to cut that bitch off.
How about Tyrion Lannister making K Camp proud? As bad as I wanted to talk about this yesterday, I waited a day to let everyone catch up. Sunday was a big night in TV with the World Cup, NBA Finals, and other shows. Some motherfuckers might have used that young DVR.
Anyway, I’m so glad this buns show is over for the year.
Keep in mind, this is coming from a Day 1 Game of Thrones fan that has never missed a single episode live. I know Bas and @oakshades think I’m the biggest Games hater, but I do like this show. I’ll be the first one to stand up and tell you I think some of the writing and plots were pure genius. I would go as far as to say some of the more shocking episodes changed TV forever.
Overall, I pretty much enjoyed each episode of this season. They were all entertaining and worth my time. But at the same time, this shit is starting to wear me out. It’s still a good show, but that’s it. It’s just a good show. I used to think this was one of the greats.
That’s what i realized at the end of this season. This is not one of the greats. This is not a Sopranos or The Wire. It’s not even close. This will not be remembered past our generation.
Maybe that’s my fault. Maybe it’s unfair to compare a story that was intended to be read as a series of books to a show like Sopranos that was written for TV (and the best TV writing of ALL time). It probably is. But that doesn’t change the fact that this show is starting to lose it’s luster for me.
Like are you really satisfied? Did you walk away from this season feeling like the 12 hours you spent on this show left you with any satisfaction? It just didn’t do it for me. It didn’t touch on any emotions. It caused no feeling in me. That’s what great TV and stories are supposed to do. It’s supposed open your mind and actually effect you at your core. It’s supposed to change you. Honestly “How I Met Your Mother” evoked more emotions in me this year than Game of Thrones. That’s real talk.
I think at the end of the day, I don’t really fuck with magic and dungeons and dragons and shit. It’s just not my thing. I didn’t mind it being part of the overall story, but each season this show creeps more and more into the land of CGI and fucking magical shit. I hate that.
The season finale really made a statement here. Yea, Tyrion choking Shae and killing his pops was cool, but more or less this shit is going straight Magic the Gathering on me. That weird little kid throwing fireballs at the whitewalkers? What the fuck is this shit?
Like I said, I’m not a full blown hater just yet. I still respect this show. It’s just not one of the greats. Your kids will not know about this show or talk about it. It won’t stand the test of time. I promise you that. I’m not sure how much more I have left in the tank but I will give it one more season. Because more than I love hating on shit, I love any excuse to sit down and mook on a sunday. And HBO Super Mookin Sunday-Funday is a lifestyle.
If you strongly agree or disagree let me hear it. More than open to a discussion about this.
