    The biggest problem was clearly the ending. The season was enjoyable but for the rushed finish.

    Aye they had so many options and possibilities but it was like they thought * it let's think of a way to * off as much of the audience as we can.

    Haha! From a technical point of view I just really enjoyed them, thought the scope was dramatic and really intense at times.

    I honestly think folk were just over-reacting.

    Disagree mate. When people have been invested in a show for almost 10 years, a show with tightly woven plot lines and character arcs. Of course they’re going to be * off when all of that goes out the window in favour of brainless “twists”.

    The idea that people hated it because they didn’t like that some of their favourite characters died or it didn’t go the way they expected is bollocks. People’s favourite characters were killed left, right and centre for years and nobody complained. In fact, that was one of the strengths of the show...because it made sense in the story.

    Yes the last series ( although it had its moments) but there were so so many * ! jaw dropping moments ,
    The Red Wedding , Every scene Jofferey and Ramsey Bolton were in , The Wall coming down , Jon Snows death and resurrection , The Battle of the * was tv at its finest , The * stuff .. ooooerr . The wee girl getting burned ( I actually turned away at that ) just off the top of my head .

    That botb sceen when snow is getting crushed was epic I could feel my chest tighten while I watched that, as you say so many great episodes of that show, the dragon getting killed and resurrected was up there for me, my imagination went wild with what was coming next, best show on tv by a mile for me even with the * up ending

    Season 1 was some of the best telly ever. Never really appreciated it first time but after watching it again and understanding it a lot better, it really was incredible.

    Fry up then season 2 is getting blasted through.

    Hardhome...where the night king resurrects everyone and the ending shot was just Jon snow and everyone in the boats looking at it happening in silence. It was my favourite moment of the whole series

    Watched it through again in about 3 weeks man, I even enjoyed the last season this time.

    The best thing I’ve ever seen, was gutted when it ended.

    Buzzing for the final 2 books, stories are totally different to the series at this point.

    As much chance of him finishing the series, as there is of the show's final season being redone :55:
