I haven't watched the show in ages and I long since gave up on the books ever finishing and now apparently the internet is losing its shit about got doing something stupid.

All I know is jon finally fucked his aunt dany after the book fans saw the foreshadowing for this decades in advance and there is apparently a darth maul ice man now

People complained that it takes too long for the plot to advance,
now they are complaining it's going too fast.
People like complaining what they hate that they pretend to love.

It's still awesome, OP.

Also I'm in a Game of Thrones fantasy league and Arya is my MVP.

Okay apparently a few things I gleened: in the show Sam is YOUNGER than his brother which makes no goddamn sense for his character since his whole being sent to the Night's Watch by his dad was to keep him from inheriting the lord title.... Which he wouldn't even do if his brother was older.

The other thing is that Dany is apparently blind to a huge fucking fleet. Also a ballista can take out dragons despite dragons being the entire reason for the Targaryen's initial conquest and subsequent control of Westeros.

Ice Darth Maul got instanly yeeted a la Snoke from star wars.

Never read or watched GoT, although from what I hear it has lots of dragons and boobies.

Honestly all I know about A Song of Ice and Fire is that there's dragons and political drama and violence, and that it was the second most popular setting to base your MUD off of, next to Wheel of Time, which I also know nothing about.

Surely Pern was the more popular MUD setting, although I guess the C&Ds may have cut down on that.

This and also that the SA thread about the books became really bad.

Yeah, plus, Pern was more often used as a setting for MUSHs or MUCKs or MOOs rather than the more gameplay oriented style, since everyone liked roleplaying that setting I guess :-I It ended up being like Harry Potter in that way, where when those books came out, it was the social roleplay-style games that popped up.

Ok Fontra remember how ice zombies were a big deal and the whole running theme of the entire series was that everyone was fighting over politics and lands and thrones instead of focusing on the bigger threat? How they're gonna have no food for winter, how their armies are exhausted and there's an eldritch horror coming from the north that's gonna destroy the kingdom?

Well it turns out it wasn't that big of a deal cause they killed those guys in one episode and we never learned their motivations or goals. Bran didn't even do anything, he's still around and hanging out with his weirdwood pals.

Oh wow. That's... pretty terrible. The whole political pettiness theme while ignoring an apocalyptic threat was really innovative as a fantasy theme back in the day and is arguably more relevant as a theme than ever.

tfw the episode of Gumball where they're stuck in the classroom during the parent teacher conference does that theme better than an HBO series

That said I think you'll be happy to know that they stayed true to the other major running theme of the series, by making the Wall fall shortly after Dolorous Edd became Lord Commander.

At least this is setting an incredibly low bar for GRRM when he gets around to finishing the ASOIAF books.

Note: I have not read any of the books nor have I seen any of the show, but fucking lol at what Highbrow Dash said.

Well... I still think it's entertaining despite its flaws but for completely different reasons. Of course the quality is lower but at least the plot is accelerated although it's tumbling down the hill.
