    honestly I thought I would want to rewatch show when I completed season 8

    But now it's like it brought the whole show down with it

    It's not motivating to think about watching it all again when that involves the shitty last episodes

    It's like getting excited for a free trip to Disnee world but you know you have to attend a long timeshare presentation at the end

    It's like getting a free trip to Disney but after you had lots of fun on the rides and stuff and you're looking forward to a yummy supper and bed they make you lick poop and sleep in a culvert.

    To be honest, I live close to Disney and do those time share presentations as often as I can. After 2 hours (how long you have to be at the presentation), I just tell them I feel sick and got to go.

    My wife always feels guilty about it, and doesn't want to go, but afterwards she is always happy we did it and have a good time outside the presentations.

    The sales people actively lie about their personal lives, so I dont feel bad at all about brushing them off. The last dude even said he was engaged and that his fiance died, and she willed him her timeshare account or whatever. He literally only had one picture of his "fiance" on his phone, and even tried to fake cry.

    I finally got through my second watch of all 8 seasons. Holy shit. Everyone singles out season 8 but the nosedive happened between seasons 6 and 7. Season 7 was a steaming pile of shit and season 8 was just more of the same. If they made a season 9 it would have just been a home video of D&D shitting a pile of turds then lighting them on fire.

    The difference is, 7 had the luxury of being the penultimate so there was an expectation that the quality could ramp up in season 8. 8 had to wrap up an epic story in a satisfying way. It couldn’t. Season 7 being less than stellar is contextually a lot less problematic than season 8 failing to give audiences what they hoped for.

    I also remember first half of 7 having some good stuff. It was the Snow Patrol Adventure North of the Wall that really tanked.

    They clearly struck a nerve with folks. Possibly the best TV show ever through the first few seasons tanking so hard... I don't usually use the term "epic fail" but the failure here was quite epic.

    Season 7 were a noticeable drop off, but damn at least it got a Grade of "E" for effort.. Season 8 was scribbling a three sentence essay about "Of Mice and Men" the morning your typed essay on the causes of WW2 was due....

    Yes......if ya'll could temporarily suspend all GoT S8 nonsense to jump on the Star Wars hate train, it'd be appreciated. Thank you.

    Seriously though, I'm surprised this thread is still even sticky worthy at this point.
