With the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones having less episodes than previous seasons, and with a storyline that needs wrapping up, it’s not surprising that the writers of the show have decided to increase the pace of the episodes where we’re getting a lot more information in a shorter period of time.
It seems that many fans have so far not been particularly thrilled with how the show has been going to far, especially with the way some of the characters are portrayed and how their storylines are being played out. So much so that one fan by the name of Dylan D. decided to launch a petition on Change.org asking HBO to remake the entire season.
According to the petition’s description, “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.” Whether or not HBO will pay attention to this petition remains to be seen, but it is obvious that many aren’t too happy with the writers of the show.
There have also been comments that have expressed displeasure at seeing the showrunners for Game of Thrones take the lead on the next trilogy of Star Wars movies.
