    I understand it’s like watching adults play Dungeons & Dragons. But with boobs. Lots of boobs.

    My 2 rules for watching the boob tube; no dragons, no zombies. This one’s a double loser.

    The only reason I knew about GOT is because during a strongman competition coverage they mentioned that Hafthor is an actor and plays "the mountain" in a series....

    If there is such thing as a GOT scholar, my daughter qualifies, she is mad about how it ended..................and like her mom, once she is mad, she stays mad forever. :couch:

    On the plus side, if there is ever anything I want to know about the show/books, I can ask her.
    Too bad she can't turn it into a paying gig.

    verb
    a simple past tense and past participle of get.
    auxiliary verb
    Informal. must; have got (followed by an infinitive).

    So if you are upset about GOT, then GET a life or ask yourself the question, GOT a Life?

    We watched the last season only. It was only like 8 episodes. We didn't want to get too invested in it

    The best ending for GOT?

    Dany and Jon embrace and kiss...and then the nuke hits. Fade to black.

    Game of Thrones.

    ( I assume, having never seen an episode myself )



    Someone is going to have to drag you, kicking and screaming , into the 20th century.

    I can’t imagine a TV show having that much of an impact on my life...

    It wasn't the genre I typically enjoy, but it was a damn good 8 seasons of entertainment.

    However, once the battle against the snow zombies happened, I stopped watching it. But I guess 1.7 million people are mad enough at the ending to sign some silly petition over it.....

    The best ending would’ve been then Tony Soprano was daydreaming the whole time before he gets wacked in the booth.

    Really though, that ending was terribad. With the way they painted themselves in, there’s three acceptable ways the show could’ve ended. The Night King wins, Jon wins, or Danarys wins. They went with the most milquetoast ending possible.

    I read a knowledgeable (?) source to say that the fault was AT&T's takeover of HBO.
    They sharp penciled revenue vs production cost and cut the last season from 8-10 episodes to six. Several story lines were just dropped and there was no time for development of Danerys as a megalomaniac who planned to kill opposition until everything was peaceful.

    That ending was so funny! Remember the screaming when Star Trek was cancelled back in the 60's

    Its the important **** that really brings us together, like tv shows... Couldn't give a second thought about homelessness, hunger, and abuse but will fire off 12 emails, 19 tweets, 5 instagram pics backing up my "not happy face " I had when I sent 19 tweets, and a nice calm burning(you know, to show them you mean business) of all clothing that depicts characters from the tv show I based my life around for years all because a fictional tv show didn't end the way I'd hoped. Really YOLOing the f*ck out of life...

    Wow... It's okay that some of you missed one of the best shows to have aired in a long time... You don't have to be upset and offend those of us who made it happen. You guys don't ever go see movies, or a play? It's the same thing-just entertainment. It's just a momentary, or temporary, reprieve from life. A short form of escape for a few minutes. Nothing more. Nothing less. A whole heck of a lot less harmful than drugs or alcohol which MANY people choose to partake of (again, as a form of escape), and maybe even some of you that are hating on those of us who have admitted to watching the show. Yes, it was just a show. Why you think it's the center of some peoples world, or existence, is puzzling to me.

    Why the vitriol folks? If you did not watch the show, or care for the show, and have nothing positive to add to the post..... why are you here? Is it because the world is short of adult males *****ing about things? I don't think so! So, like your mamma probably told you-but you either did not listen, or chose to intentionally ignore-if you ain't got nothing positive to say... Just don't say anything at all. Cool?

    Now, on to the important stuff...
    This is how it should have been done;

    Yup...for sure waking up in bed with Suzanne Pleshette would always be a very happy ending.....something about her I always liked.
