Just been announced season 8 won't drop till 2019. After the serious dip in quality for the rushed season 7 are we all that bothered? 

Looking forward to HBO giving us the rumoured Spielberg produced epic of Napoleon's life  based on Stanley Kubrick's script - said to be the most epic film never made. 

Also hoping Netflix make a great job of The Witcher. 

But GoT has lost a lot of its fantasy world making interest and charm as it works through an increasingly predictable and daft plot.

You must have been watching something else...other than the horrific episode with the ice javelin (and perhaps the somewhat questionable idea to kidnap a White and bring it to Cersei), S7 was excellent.

It was rushed to the point of being ridiculous. This article from the Guardian highlighted the flaws perfectly.

Oh, I think there were definitely elements of it being rushed....but it was also somewhat inevitable. There is no way either the books or the series could have concluded at the overall narrative pace of the books. It simply had to accelerate at some point in order to reach a conclusion.

I'm going to say three words:

Ed Sheeran cameo.

I'm going to say three more words:

S7 E6 WTF

How about three more?

Jet pack ravens

And finally three more:

Nobody can drown.

The best that can be said for S7 is it'll be quite a feat for S8 to be more nonsensical than that.

LOL...no doubt on all those points.  Hell, the jet-packing overall, not just the ravens. And don’t even get me started on E6....I think we all know my feelings on that turd. :P

The jet packing and wormholes are an easy fix - FFS, they managed it on SpongeBob:

:lol:

But let’s also realize that jet packing and timeline issues have been a constant in this series, both in the books and TV.  It is not something unique to S7 (although it clearly suffered more than other seasons)   In fact,  GRRM has admitted that the storylines are not all on the same timeline, I believe.

for fans, the prequel - Fire & Blood: 300 Years Before A Game of Thrones (A Targaryen History) (A Song of Ice and Fire)

Martin just needs to stop writing prequels or other assorted Westeros tomes, stop attending FanCons and talk shows, and sequester himself beyond the Wall to finish the last 2 books in the canon before he dies.  That fucker CAN NOT be very healthy.

Not going to watch the trailer.  Experience has shown me that I enjoy the show more when I haven't seen any previews.

Currently watching the whole thing again - into S2 now.

It's not PC to say "little dwarf guy".  I'm pretty sure they prefer "midget".
