Now that it's all said and all done, what are your most memorable scenes from the show? There is a lot to draw from, I'm interested in what impacted you the most.

Didn't he release a Barristan Selmy chapter a few years ago?

Yeah, there's no way he's finishing those books at this rate. He's already 72.

Looks like D&D's conclusion is all there's ever gonna be. :-)

You know he's just sitting on three or four more finished books, trying to maximize the payoff.

HBO starts production on the spin off in 2021 with GRRM executive producing. Which would seem to mean his old ass won’t be working on the books. But who knows?

Doesn't Brandon Sanderson specialize in completing other dudes' novel series?

Season 8 just destroyed everything before for me.
The show took a noticeable dip in quality for me in season 5 (though it had some of my favorite moments beyond that point), but seasons 1-4 are truly all-time TV. I put those seasons up against The Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad, etc.

He's probably the best shot we'll have at getting a finished product. I'm currently reading his Stormlight Archive and he's great but I think Martin's writing is a bit more layered. No one writes at the speed Sanderson does, though. If he ever takes over, he'll have this thing wrapped up within a few years.

The thing I don't understand about the end of GOT is why they tried to condense it into such a little amount of episodes. There was so much story left that in the short time they had they had no shot of actually making it end well.

Once they caught up with the books and didn't have any more source material, I think they were completely lost as to what to do. I think when they started the series, they figured that George would have written some more books by the time they got to that point. When he didn't, they kinda shit their pants and decided to end it ASAP.

If you came to it late, like I did, and binged it all without the gaps in seasons, S8 is not as bad simply because you didn't have to wait 18+ months just to be disappointed. They obviously struggled after running through the primary source material, but it wasn't a complete disaster after S4. Season 6 was arguably one of the best seasons (I know some places rated it above S4). Once they got the Star Wars promise, they mailed it in and rushed to a finish.

With that said, the part that bothered me the most, from years of playing Total War, were the awful, awful battle tactics.

The sad part is, if somebody who had never seen GoT asked me if it was worth watching, knowing how shitty the ending is, I'd say no. I wouldn't even recommend the books, since they started to largely suck after the third one and the series will probably never be finished anyway (die in fire Martin :-)).

Also, since the misery/joy ratio was pretty much 90/10 even when it was good, I think binging all eight seasons in short order would likely make one suicidally depressed.
