As someone who has never given a good god damn about Game of Thrones, it was a real delight to sit back and watch the outrage in the fan community over the final season. It seems that people aren't happy these days unless they're mad about something, and the abbreviated final season of the show gave fans plenty to be angry about.
The good folks over at Screen Junkies have put together a new Honest Trailer for Game of Thrones, their third and final in a series, which covers seasons six through eight. They make some valid points, even for someone like me that couldn't care less about the show, mainly that it's obvious that the showrunners were working off an outline since George R.R. Martin couldn't get his fat-guy-hat-wearing-ass in gear and provide them with much more than that.
Part of me thinks that this is another classic case of misdirected fan outrage, but there's almost a universal consensus that the show's final two seasons were underwhelming at best. At least with something like The Last Jedi, there are people on both sides of the argument, yet there don't seem to be many people lining up to defend seasons seven or eight of GoT. In this one case, the fans might actually be right.
