It's very sad and disappointing how GoT went from this unique, fascinating, and enthralling show to watch and discuss with others to a stale, generic, lazy, and dumbed down piece of fluff that simply elicits apathy when you look past the solid acting and cool special effects. We can all agree that the rot started to set in season 5 but I held out hope for a while that they could bring it around for the final episodes and at least conclude it in a satisfactory manner. But now? The White Walkers, the villains they've been building up since the very first fucking scene of this whole show, are already gone, and who honestly gives a single crap about Cersei and the iron throne now. The series will end in a whimpering, cold, humid fart and everyone will forget about it in 2-3 years when those prequel series come out, which, hopefully, will have entirely new writers.Game of Thrones is in an unusual position for franchises that have shit the bed recently, in that it seems to have sacrificed the wall of Social Justice that previous garbage fires like The Last Jedi and Ghostbusters 2016 tried to huddle behind. Its plot twists have effectively served to completely fuck up not only the good storytelling and character development vile neckbeards like myself appreciate, but also most of the feminist credentials it had built up over the years. It was also never regarded as very good when it comes to minorities (Daenerys is the epitome of the White Savior), and now it's catching fresh hell on that front as well.
Lindsay might be a stopped clock, but I'd bet dollars to doughnuts most of her criticism will be cloaked in SJW language, or at least that will make up a big part of it.
