    Why does NO ONE ever talk about how Sam in the books is a little shit and he's likable in the show?

    I think the Cat-Robb relationship in the first season is better in the show, as well as the Red Wedding.

    it would have been gr8 if they tied up the entire north plot using the north folk and danny - but no one in the south believes it. at all. like it isnt even a thing. that would be rad.

    hey guys my Martin of country Zimbabwe . i hope you read this because you're the most knowledgeable people i know, regarding GOT, when it come to the type of question I'm hoping you'll enjoy answering . whether you respond roaring with laughter coz of how silly said question is, or if it might tickle you brain and burrow itself: until it becomes food for thou....... I should get to the point. *i didnt watch all your videos but i watched quite number of them( very nice how you answer the heading of the videos with questions as the tittle. You know what we want to know and you gave the people what the NEEDED. i think by now you're wondering where this is going. While I was trying to word my question in the best way i felt very compelled to let you guy know that i appreciate how much work you've put into these awesome videos you made. In fact I'm 99.8% sure there ISN'T Anything you haven't covered. My QUESTION is hopefully the remaining 0.02%. btw i sincerely mean every word of praise and i hope you read this far because i would be so happy if this made feel appreciated. I know people give compliments all the time, GOT has many fans. i was hoping this would feel different because this is the first day i saw your account. i guess what I'm trying to say is, this is NOT coming from someone whose been a fan for year( I'm not being emotional and saying this because this was your last video) i only started watching today because i didn't want to run into any spoilers on this type of page. it seems a silly point for me to be making but what im trying to emphasise is that i do not have any bias towards you. NOT saying my compliment is better than others, what i am saying is that you're content is at such a high standard that even me as a first comer, to this channel, am made to like it so much that iv been sitting for hour making this feedback for you( like fan boy. most of that time was spent making sure I express my humble gratitude without it being misinterpreted as being self centred . i have not altered the begging because i feel. it accurately captures the spontaneity in my chain of thought and I'm hoping you will feel like....... Well I hope you feel its like its one of the most informative reviews that lets you know how even people like me, seeing your channel only today for the first time, who HAVEN'T actually grown to like you OVER some TIME while watching are so ululated by the experience that is hearing your complimentary and contrasting thoughts on subjects that very few individuals fully appreciate. When you go to an all boys school most discussions or talks about GOT are, (no offence is intended here, i used this word for lack there of a better->) well, primitive. You know usual casual got fans. They have endless debates on who the hottest female cast member is, and instead of having debates( or discussions ) about just how much destruction was caused little fingers they prefer to put that brain power to use to create the most vivid recollection of major characters' nude scenes that have been shown in the series, and give detailed descriptions of how they hope to see the rest of the characters naked. i think i made my point. please as BRUTALLY honest as you like. hopefully it doesn't affect how respond.
    i know i wrote a mini book but its because i hoped my way of writing will give the best understanding i can , of what i felt. I hoped the way I made long sentences would help you to plainly see my thought pattern and maybe in it you'll find something funny or interesting or maybe even like my style of writing because it might make it easy it is to visualise which causes more captivating. or its too much useless writing. Please note the main purpose of this is to let you know how much i appreciate the quality time i enjoyed just experiencing your videos and how they were something that even helped me understand , and most importantly find closer after season 8............. The secondary thing that i would appreciate if you could please judge what i wrote . focusing on how i conveyed my thoughts that swooped in while i was about to ask a question. Even the length of it all was a conscious choice that i thought might emulate the feeling of becoming lost in thought and thinking so much.:)

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THE!!! ACTUAL!!! QUESTION!!! IS!!! AS!!! FOLLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If we look at most movies, series and shows, you might have notice the layering of meaning and stories and interactions this sometimes even helps make the richer, it seems to becoming more popular. I experienced while watching Got. Especially in the earlier seasons. slow paced but using that time to progress the story as they introduced characters and caused many of their carefully planed multiple perspectives to interact and notably influence each others lives. Even greater assortment can be found in the way each interaction is always unique in it on right. The point is, it's easier to immerse yourself into an assorted, densely populated and convoluted world than it is to forget yourself in a virtual world that has nothing at all. Your imagination is better at maintaining a state of vivid immersion if it has very clear and usually familiar things to fill up the landscape ...... i know you must have run into people that dislike the final seasons because of the decline of how much effort was put into character arcs, that got me thinking. About how there's never been one character who dominates and can be said to be the main character and as i said a bit earlier the focus is evenly spread and its never clear how the writer decide how to kill characters off. I HAVE THEORY ND I THINK PEOPLE HO KNOW AS MUCH AS YOU COULD EASILY CONFIRM OR DENY IF IM RIGHT, and it would be a decision made by someone who is intimately with the content. PLEASE no one claim my own IDEA :I
    AFTER MUCH THOUGHT AND WATCHING THE SERIES AGAIN. I FEEL to understand the show, one must take a huge Step back and try to observe events without becoming invested in specific characters, A holistic point of view. i did find a recurring factor that was always what decided who lived or died. its not something that sticks out but if you use my logic to check as you watch
    All the way from the verbal debates about ideals to fighting the ice king, the victor of any type of battle was always the smartest, at least in the writers opinion. I'm not sure if its Is a conscious guideline he uses. Or maybe deep down inside he wishes whits had always been what decided the outcome of battle but the link i there. it seems like an obvious point but if you agree its correct, then that could be the simplest accurate description of what game of thrones is about. A rule that all the stories and arguments were strictly governed by. if this is correct then, if you're capable of accurately how intelligent each character is , then no matter how the odds are stacked, when and if they fight it's always the smartest person who comes out on top. Obvious when you test my theory on family clashes you gauge the family as a whole an you can only confirm or deny once one family has completely won the war. not counting individual battles that occur before one i proclaimed the victor. Also consider that most characters intelligence level was always changing based on what knew at the different points in time of their different battles. So Each time you want to test my theory you must recalculate their intelligence level based on what they've experienced until that point
    using this logic the end makes a lot more sense in terms of where the surviving characters end up. Smartest got the best fate. and the dumbest got the shortest end of stick. using that you can arrange the characters from who you think was the most fortunate to the unluckiest and that will give you smartest to dumbest, respectively.

    I actually think that no. 1 is spot on. A lot of the problems of the final season I felt were a negative consequence of not having the Young Griff character. Like, imagine Daenerys' whole "they don't love me, they love him" schtick being about someone who actually WANTS the throne and is actively trying to get it instead of some knucklehead constantly going "buh i dunt want it" over and over again. It also makes so little sense. The people of Westeros don't love Jon Snow, the people of the North do. The populace of King's Landing probably don't even know who Jon Snow is let alone love him.

    The only thing I really disagree with is the White Walkers being done better in the show. I feel like this is mostly just a consequence of us not really having seen much from them in the books thus far, but at any rate I vastly prefer the mysterious and ethereal quality they have in the books. For example, one of the coolest details they explain about them in the books is that when they walk on the snow, they don't sink into it and leave no footprints. Just how they sort of feel like they're the cold incarnate.

    @24.44 its not original or unique for jon to warg into ghost and come back that way. Robin hobb wrote something very similar many years ago and George rr martin loves her work so I think thats an influence from her. It's still a cool idea tho.

    i agree with sansa's storyline!! the writers think that sansa has to go through really tough shit for her to improve and their disregard of the whole jeyne poole plot really makes me feel like it was kinda dumbed down. im pretty happy that sansa may be safely plotting in the eyrie in the books.

    Ramsay is by far the BEST GOT villain in the show. Ian plays him so well, and elevates his creepiness from the books. His good looks lend to that charming psychopath way he plays Ramsay instead of the greasy gross Ramsay in the books.

    The honourable mention for best change in the show is definitely the aging-up of the younger characters. GRRM himself regrets making them so young because he had intended to do a time skip at some point in the books so that it would skip forward and they would be older, but it didn’t end up happening.

    The storyline with Davos and the Manderlys trying to find Rickon being cut out really irritated me. I love the Manderlys in the books and they are basically cut out of the show. Also, the way they ruined Stannis is completely disgraceful, he wouldn’t burn Shireen like that, and he wouldn’t lose that badly to Ramsay. The battle between Ramsay and Stannis is almost an afterthought in the show, but in the books it’s building up to be a huge event where many characters are converging (Stannis, Jon (was planning on it), Theon, Asha, and Mance).

    Now i wouldn’t have been that pissed with the Sansa/Jeyne Poole thing if they have given her some agency, show her purposefully manipulating Ramsay, she’s at her home, at her full power. Now i know Theon needed that rescue plot, but still, they could have at least shown Sansa did sth (now i know she gave that this is my home speech, but what did she actually DO). Like make her manipulate Ramsay, but when she found out that Bran and Rickon are still alive + learns abt Jon or sth, she try to escape and messed up, alerting Ramsay, which triggers him to be more violent, and then give Theon the rescue plot.

    And we thought it couldn't get worse after last episode , ffs Dumb and Dumber have ruined it, HBO offered them more time and resources and the took a year extra and gave us the crappy ending an ending the epics that were seasons 1 to 4 and certain epic episodes in seasons 5 to 7 and 7 was pretty poor but had spectacle and we thought it better because we were sold the Night King and his White Walkers as a threat unlike any to have about 9 people die including extras and the long night being as long as any night ffs , the Night King was written to be a bitch and one shotted, video games from the 90's had better story dialog and plot than season 8 , truly gutted and gutted for all the GOT fans , this stings

    I feel like they tried to take viserys/aegon\varys plot and give it to jon and dany, like viserys was going to be this crazy conquerer and aegon this worthy king and people were going go prefer aegon blah blah in the last couple episodes you see varys trying to do the same with dany he makes her look like tha bad choice (which she ends up being) so jon will seem like a better option
