The slightest look takes in a whole new meaning knowing what we know now.

Game of thrones will land for a great many people when they rewatch.


Despite what I just posted, I agree that it can be interesting to rewatch something when you know the ending.



I love you cos you make a beautiful simply put point that I can’t argue with.
And you always make sense.

You bastard.

;)

Don't be that guy.

Life's too short to spend it on a show that ends so poorly a second time over!


I love you. I really do. But if you think the ending is more important than the journey, you’re missing something deep inside.

I agree on some shows. Seinfeld’s shitty ending doesn’t detract at all from everything that came before. But when so much of the plot relies on intrigue and complicated machinations? And to know they come together in a limp-dicked final season? Meh.

By all means, knock yourselves out and watch it again if it brings you joy. I’m not trying to deprive anyone of that. I just think there’s other stuff I haven’t seen yet (I’ve never seen Deadwood!), and my viewing time is limited.

You haven’t seen Deadwood?

Don’t post again until you have. You’re talking outta your ass until you’ve seen it.
Undoing your own point bringing it up when you have no idea what happens.
How about that

It’s almost like the me too crowd in Hollywood have finally read the game of thrones books and just now discovered they’re packed with rape, child rape and incest.

It’s like it’s new information to them.

Bizarre.

That is a perfectly reasonable reading of this news.

They made a wise choice, went for the right prequel.

"HBO has ordered a Game of Thrones spinoff, House of the Dragon, straight to series.

The new prequel is written by Ryan Condal (Colony), with George R.R. Martin set to co-executive produce. The project is based on Martin’s 2019 book Fire and Blood, and is a history of House Targaryen (the ancestors of Daenerys) as they fight through a civil war. The 10-episode project is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.

HBO executive Casey Bloys made the announcement at an event for HBO Max, AT&T’s streaming service coming May 2020."

Are they still doing that other prequel that takes place far in the past? I thought I heard someone say they cancelled that? That would suck.
