    They seem unable to not see this as just another LOTR, with the night king being just another Sauron, and you kill him by punching him in the face, really really hard, cus he's a big bad bully

    For years it was touted again and again, GRRM makes a point out of battles and wars not solving things, he makes a point out of these prophecies being faintly unreliable, and varied, while maintaining some realities

    He has been planting so many threads, so many possible solutions, and hinted at so many different possibilities, and D&D opts for Arya - IN THEIR WORDS - cus it'd be kewl. OUT THE WINDOW with everything else, and in with the kewl.

    This is what I get. This is what I get for letting all of you bastards influence me into breaking my own rule against TV-shows, and getting myself firmly invested in this series.

    This is equivalent to "Oh, turns out the ring was just an invisibility-ring, has nothing to do with Sauron - didn't expect THAT didya! See? Clever writing. Now, someone go hack Sauron to death with a dagger."

    Dungeons and Dragons is writing Game of Thrones?

    Such a dissapointment though, they really had an oportunity to showcase some real twists, epic fantasy (in an original sense) and poetic tragedy (such as the Mormont vs Danaerys fan-theory)

    Instead they pulled a fucking "wildlings on the wall"-thing, where we have a hectic battle, and ka-poof, there they go, no more white walkers. What was up with the Horn of Winter? What was up with the spirals? "Nothing. Burp" -D&D

    So turns out that without G.R.R. Martin's material they are just completely mediocre writers?

    Reminds me of AOT season 3 part 1, and how idiots complained about the Uprising arc of the manga being too slow so the anime studio rewrote it and recut into an inchoerent mess, to the point where they introduce Instant sleep darts into the setting just so they can introduce the Human Supression squad on the first episode which breaks the setting so hard they basically have to ignore it from then on.

    The pacing was so fast paced that a character that had a mini arc with the protagonist through multiple episode and fleshes out the setting is instead killed off on the same episode they are introduced and they have to hastily give his lines to other characters at the end, and when they actually pick up the original material the pacing and storyline improves again. Funny that.

    I've always been sceptical (and I say that mildly) to media adaptations, book-to-movie, movie-to-comic, book-to-game, game-to-movie etc. Adaptations can be convenient - if done well, but most of the time, they're just cash-grabs, and will behave like it. When I first heard of GoT I thought it was like Breaking Bad, I thought it was something brilliant and beloved made for TV particularily

    As soon as I learned it was an adaptation - of fairly obscure but critically aclaimed 90s fantasy novels... from that moment on, I've kind of just been counting down and waiting for it to just start sucking... and sure enough! They just could not hack it in the long run.

    At one point on AOT S3-1 a character flashes back to a conversation they never had with Eren (That was actually a huge moment in the story), because the writers of the early episodes of the season thought characters talking was too boring and they needed the Human Supression Squad on episode 1.
