HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5: The Bells

Update: The petition has now been signed by 1 Million Game Of Thrones fans!

1 Million fans sign the petition to remake Game Of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers

Game of Thrones Season 8 is being received very poorly. The fans haven’t been happy with how the writing has been this season, complaining about the haphazard pace and convenient plot. They seem to be so angered with the whole deal that they have now started a petition to remake Season 8 with  “competent writers”. Read on!

While a lot of the complaints about the Game of Thrones have been about the plot development itself, it seems as though the fudged pace could have made it so. The first two episodes were well received, but the third and fourth were both heavily criticized, with the fifth episode, “The Bells“, becoming the worst rated episode of the show.

The displeased fans have now taken to Change.org with a petition to HBO that asks for the final season to be remade. The description reads:

“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on. This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”

Well, the petition has hit 150,000 signatures as of now and it looks like it could easily hit a million, and more, given the amount of dissatisfaction going around. The final episode plot summary was also leaked and has been getting a lot of hate so the finale could see this petition gain even more traction.

What do you guys think? Would you sign this petition? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

I agree. The series deserves much more. The characters deserve better. They had 1hr 30 mins last episode 5 and they spent whole of it burning the city. I saw the making. They spent so much on making the sets what was the point if there was nothing to show?
The audience demands should be considered.

Please also include the link to petition so we can also sign. These writers made GoT just another Marvel or Disney content.

I honestly think that GRRM should have at least written a summarized script if not the book then D & D direct from there. GRRM could have at least seen the scripts and not just the ending. I think he dissociated himself after the 6th season when his insights were needed. Fact remains the original creator is GRRM while the directors are D & D and they both cannot do each others work.

Well this is game of thrones, nobody is criticising the unexpected ending or where ever the show takes us,, the problem is with the incompetent script writing and so many plot holes in the script which was not seen in the previous seasons of game of thrones… so many loose ends in th script is what everyone is yelling about…

Agree, after waiting 2 yrs for the finale it was far from what dedicated viewers and fans deserved and seemed thrown together and contrived, not giving particularly key characters any real depth or consideration worth ending an epic series on. Truth be – I wasn’t expecting much when it came out that there would be such a delay and THEN only 8 episodes. Some endings were appropriate – others cheap – and others yet so offbeat that it seemed like the final episode was written by people who hadn’t watched the first 7. Wondering if a rewind and redo will… Read more »

Amazing. Folks have nothing better than to piss and moan about this? I would LOVE to see ANYONE even come within a MILE of talent and creativity the Game of Thrones writers have given us for the past ten years. I think they did a remarkable job and this ridiculous whining is despicable. Piss pff babies. Deal with it.

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss sign $200 million deal with Netflix

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss sign $200 million deal with Netflix

Game of Thrones is over now. The show made stars out of a lot of actors, but they aren’t the only people that ended up making gold from the success of this show. Pretty much everybody involved with the show is now in some serious demand, and most of all, it’s the showrunners — David Benioff and Dan Weiss. The pair have now managed to snatch a giant deal with Netflix, which will be their new home. Read on!

Now, we all know about Netflix and how aggressively it’s trying to expand its content library by bringing in some big names. Their latest “acquisitions” are the creators of the Game of Thrones TV series, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who have signed a deal that is being said to be in the ballpark of $200 million. The pair said in a statement:

“We’ve had a beautiful run with HBO for more than a decade and we’re grateful to everyone there for always making us feel at home. Over the past few months we’ve spent many hours talking to Cindy Holland and Peter Friedlander, as well as Ted Sarandos and Scott Stuber. We remember the same shots from the same ’80s movies; we love the same books; we’re excited about the same storytelling possibilities. Netflix has built something astounding and unprecedented, and we’re honored they invited us to join them.”

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos also released a statement:

“We are thrilled to welcome master storytellers David Benioff and Dan Weiss to Netflix. They are a creative force and have delighted audiences worldwide with their epic storytelling. We can’t wait to see what their imaginations will bring to our members.”

Other possible deals included big names like Amazon, and Disney, the latter of which already have a work arrangement with the pair, for the Star Wars franchise. With their first Star Wars film set for a 2022 release, it will be interesting to see when Benioff and Weiss get started with their work with Netflix. As far as HBO goes, the studio couldn’t keep up with the offers but will credit the two as executive producers on any Game of Thrones prequels that appear in the future.

Seth Rogen brutally criticized the Game of Thrones ending at San Diego Comic-Con 2019

Game of Thrones Season 8 still has fans mad, and one of those fans seems to be the coolest guy in Hollywood — Seth Rogen. As we had reported, the Game of Thrones showrunners, David Benioff and Dan Weiss had dropped out of the San Diego Comic-Con 2019 and looks like Seth took it upon himself to talk about Game of Thrones. Read on!

Speaking at SDCC 2019, Seth had blunt criticism for Game of Thrones Season 8 and the showrunners:

“I just wanna say we’re following the Game of Thrones panel, which is a f***ing nightmare, just objectively. I also know that the showrunners didn’t turn up, because they didn’t want to answer questions about the show… I’m not one of the creators of Game of Thrones, I am the creator of other TV shows, so feel free to ask me any Game of Thrones questions you might have throughout the night.”

He was asked what he thought of the ending, to which he replied:

“I imagine those guys regret making Bran the King because, ultimately, he doesn’t have the best story. [Arya] learned all that face shit, where’d it go?”

He also commented on Jaime and Cersei’s deaths, and said he would have liked it better if Jaime killed Cersei:

“I do, honestly. You don’t want to follow these people for three years and then have them die in rubble. Anti-climactic.”

Well, Rogen makes some good points. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau gets booed at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 for defending Jaime’s ending

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau gets booed at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 for defending Jaime's ending

Game of Thrones Season 8 is still not done getting all the hate the fanbase thinks it deserves. Like we had reported, the fans were planning on confronting showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss at San Diego but they dropped off from the panel at the last moment. Looks like the fans voiced a bit of their displeasure anyway, booing Nikolaj Coster-Waldau instead. Read on!

As you might know, Game of Thrones had a panel at SDCC 2019, in Hall H, one last time. A few of the stars were present at the panel, including Nikolaj, who played Jaime Lannister on the show. Speaking at the panel, Nikolaj defended Jaime’s death and his return to Cersei by leaving Brienne behind, saying it made sense to him, and that it was perfect for the character. This drew in a few boos from the crowd. Check out the video:

Nikolaj just laughed it off and went on to discuss the hate that Season 8 and the ending received:

“It was surprising the level of absurdity of the online petition. Every season, we had huge controversies. From Ned Stark being killed, ‘I’m never going to watch that piece of shit show again!’ And then there was the Red Wedding. And obviously, the end. I feel so lucky to have met so may fans of the show, and to realize this show has brought so many people together. Watching it, loving it. So obviously, It comes to an end, it’s going to piss you off no matter what. It’s the end! But at the end of the day, it’s absolutely fine. If you hated the ending if you loved it, that’s great. Just don’t call people names.”

Makes sense. What do you guys think? Still mad about Season 8? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
