I admittedly lowered my expectations for the finale and was pleasantly surprised. A ton of things could be nit-picked but the majority fall under the umbrella of the ending being rushed.

Agreed and it's early in the rating. These things cycle. I imagine more will come round to your way of thinking.

4.7 is ridiculous. I agree people are upset just cause its cool to be upset at this point. I'd rank the episode 7-7.5 The big battle episode was disappointing but I'd still rate it above average.

Lol 4.5 now. It's going to end up around a 4.2 or 4.1.

I think 7 is fair. Way below GOT standards, but above avg for most tv.

I don't think that's necessarily fair to say. It's supposed to be fun, that's why they have the rating game. No one owes the show anything and I doubt the writers are losing any sleep. People, neither viewers nor creators are jumping off ledges here. Yes probably some frustrations being vented, some baby names being changed but everyone wanted the perfect show in their life-time and they feel a missed opportunity.

The acting isn't being slammed. The writers and possibly the editors did stink up the two previous episodes and it's fair, IMO to rate the last in that context and it had nothing to do with the rush in MY observation.I think those poor ratings were well earned based upon the story as told.

23 pages so far.

At the end of the day, it was a show that included dragons, giants, zombies, talking trees, 3 eyes ravens... Entertaining, sure. However, at the end of the day it was a fantasy show. No one should have gotten too attached.

Yes and no. Some of the reactions are over the top, but its also the biggest TV show of the last 15-20 yrs. As I said before, with NFLX emerging in the last 5 years, Im not sure well see a show that reaches such a large audience ever again.

You know our next round of trolls is going to have a Bronn or a Ramsay Bolton... I'm surprised one hasn't shown up yet.

Yeah with this & Big Bang Theory ending in the last week, I think that officially closes the book on the age of weekly television. No other shows are pulling 10M+ live viewers per week.

Good call. Maybe a Littlefinger is in order!

It has been a minute since I have been a routine viewer of any TV show.

The last couple would have been Sons of Anarchy, Bates Motel, and if I have go back to actual network TV....................it may be over 20 years now.


Actually, it was in 2005 with JAG. That was the last TV show on network TV that I made sure I watched (or taped) if I wasn't home.


With many of the shows, like the Big Bang, I liked it but never watched it on network as it was always on their reruns on cable.

They missed the mark badly and deserved low scores. This last episode was solid.
Completely agree. The final episode was far superior to either of the big "battle" episodes that took place this season

Watched the series finale of Game of Throwns while a Tornado went through town here in Huber Heights. Hey, we ignored the warnings because it was the finale of Game of Thrones ... who wouldn't of? Even when I heard the strong winds followed by boom of something smashing into something still nope, kept glued to the damn show. So, is Bran going to wake from his vision and we learned that this last season was just that, a vision and we get to start it over again!

Geez, they could have at least given a nod to Rickon and Robb. I would have loved if bad-shot Bran, crippled Bran and newly minted 3-eye Raven Bran had all told Rickon to move left and Rickon being Rickon, ignored the advice.



With Sansa an exception, the new lords and ladies are a very poor imitation of the ones that started this thing.
