Game Of Thrones Petition: Over 700, 000 Fans Want Season 8 Remade by EngrHumble(m): 4:08pm On May 17, 2019
Over 700, 000 fans of the popular television
show, ‘Game of Thrones’ have called for a
remake of what they termed “a disappointing last
season.”

The fans are signing a change.org petition titled
“Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with
competent writers.”
The petition had garnered 736, 080 signatures at
the time of this report on Friday, and was gaining
more supporters by the second.

The petition read, “David Benioff and D.B. Weiss
have proven themselves to be woefully
incompetent writers when they have no source
material to fall back on. This series deserves a
final season that makes sense.”
HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’, which was adapted
from George R.R. Martin’s ‘A song of fire and
ice’, started outpacing the series of novels in
season six.

After the show was on hiatus for all of 2018, the
premiere of season eight in April was the most-
watched one-day event in HBO’s more than four-
decade history.

A lot of fans have described the season as
underwhelming and a poor finale to a great
show. Among the numerous issues, fans
complained about the poorly lit ‘Battle of
Winterfell’ in episode three.

They also complained about the inconsistent
storylines, poor character arcs and were outraged
when the otherwise carefully shot series
accidentally left a paper coffee cup in episode
four.

HBO acknowledged that the presence of the
disposable cup in the scene was a mistake, and
later edited it out of the episode.
In the penultimate episode of the series, which
aired May 12, Daenerys executed Lord Varys
before wiping out King’s Landing and most of its
population, even after the bells of surrender
sounded.

Many thought the massacre was completely out-
of-character for Daenerys — or at the very least
needed more of a build-up.
‘Game of Thrones’ has had an average of 43
million viewers per episode which is expected to
rise as the final episode airs on Sunday.

The painful part was when Cersei died, she wasnt suppose to die like that, her death was supposed to be very slow and painful, episode 5 was so annoying ehhh.

I extend a big f-uck you to the viewers and their salty rants.
The show, for something without a guide book, was executed well.
It’s normal that characters acted out of the norm but what else should the creators have done?
Man, so far the series kept people talking — and this time more than the usual, I see it as a success.

I swear to God, i was disappointed at her death, i wanted something epic and yes, a slow and painful death but the acting of Lena and Nicolaj was on point, i kinda had a bit of sympathy for her in that scene even though she's an heartless monster

As much as I find season 8 beyond disappointing, I wouldn't go as far as calling Weiss and Beniof "woefully incompetent".

George Martin is a master in his craft; his ASOIAF books are simply peerless, so there's honestly no way the quality of the show would not have gone down when D&grin ran out of Martin's books. Of course, this knowledge doesn't make watching season8 any less awful, but at least it helps put the awfulness in perspective: D&grin really did do their best.

Take any of the 2 main "set pieces" and look at them as a stand-alone: the Battle of Winterfell, and the Battle (or should we say the Massacre) of Kings Landing. By themselves, these two events were excellent in choreography, camera work, special effects, and cinematic directing (I will leave out dialogue/scripting for obvious reasons). The problem only shows up when you look at the bigger picture: continuity and storyline-development.

My point with all this grammar is this: yes, season8 is awful, but I would not blame D&grin so much. I honestly doubt anyone could do better without GRR Martin's source material.

And by the way, a remake is never going to happen. Too expensive.

Don't be surprised when Brynn the cripple boy becomes king.
Cerci that created the atomic bomb underground in the past season could not even lift a finger to defend her City. Na wa
Night king killed by a girl that jumped from thin air. Yimu.

Even if it is going to be remade, how can they unseen what they have already viewed? cheesy

In as much as it is laughable, this issue is causing some of these fans mental disturbances as they have personalized it.

They want it remade. Like they would personally pay Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington $500,000 per episode like HBO had been paying. undecided

Dany has always shown signs of instability. Even when her brother Viserys was killed by Karl Drogo, she showed no emotions at the killing of her own brother. Her advisors did a good job at keeping her at bay. She is a Targaryen. They rain hell on their enemies especially with a dragon. Sad ending but the show must not go the way you want it.
