    Like someone breaking up with their gf saying "It's not you, it's me" when it's totally them.

    If the show was liked and making money, the company would have ORDERED it to continue at any costs.
    Give actual evidence that refutes the statement from HBO.

    Hey, I just gotta know. What's it feel like to be completely wrong about everything?

    Giving any creative control over GoT to Dipshit and Dumbfuck. I don't know how they managed to land those jobs in the first place, because recently I watched a video on them that showed they had piss-poor credentials prior to GoT, but whatever. When they were following the book material at least they weren't actively ruining things. But from season four onward when they were running out of book material things went sideways fast. What they did to Dorne just because they had no idea for the story long term (due to lack of book material) in season 5 was already a travesty. And it only got worse in later seasons.

    Combine that with their desire to rush things because they got bored of GoT and wanted to move to other projects that they could get because of the GoT fame (first some show about the US Civil War, then Star Wars), with HBO doing nothing about it (either letting them go or trying to keep them for a proper amount of seasons to milk that GoT money flow) and you got a complete train wreck that was the last two seasons.

    All very good picks. Not that there is such a thing as 8th season of Dexter or Death Note after L.

    She should have had a steady decline into madness, like her father.

    Ugh, thinking about it just pisses me off... GoT is like, the one show I won’t even rewatch because of this shit.

    Also, Netflix's Witcher. Holy hell, they fucked the story up so hard. Cavill's performance was great, but the story... The "best" thing is that the more important any given short story was to the relationship between Geralt and Ciri, i.e. the fucking cornerstone of the whole thing, the more botched it was. While the less important ones were treated in a more faithful manner.

    Take the episode where Geralt was in Cintra during Duny's intrusion, for example. The slow cat and mouse game between Duny and Calante about his right to Pavetta, with twists like Calante ordering the midnight bells be sound earlier so that Duny would be forced to unmask himself before his face became normal to turn the people at the party against him was nowhere to be seen.

    Instead the show rushed the whole thing from Duny's arrival to everyone merrily accepting his right in like five minutes. All because half of the episode was devoted to worthless, non-canon drivel about Yennefer and some no-name queen, to "deepen" her backstory (of apparently being a fuck-up, even though it goes against her characterization in the book where she's respected by other mages).

    Thanks to that genius move the reveal that the Law of Surprise is actually about the promised person choosing the one to whom they were promised, rather than automatically belonging them just because of the promise, was nowhere to be seen either.

    Then combine that with how the show also axed Geralt initially rejecting his right to Ciri when he visited Cintra when she was a few years old (because the show had to warp the chronology massively for some inane reason) because he wasn't sure if he even believed in fate, refused to take her again after he randomly found her in Brokilon even despite her wishes and only took her in after he stumbled upon her randomly again after the fall of Cintra, because he came to realize that fate or not, she's something more than that. All that characterization and strong emotional moments just got flushed down the drain.

    But hey, at least we got all those extra scenes about Istredd. Even though his very character is fucking pointless without adapting the story in which Yennefer is forced to choose between him and Geralt and is unable to do so. Which is precisely what Netflix did as well. While already making Yennefer kinda cut her ties with him.

    Yeah, it was a farce. And it's not that I'm some fan of Dany bitter at not getting the ending I wanted. I'm saying it as someone who wanted Daenerys' story to go that way since I hate that character, as well as expected it due to reading the books (although the show cut out the bits about her being paranoid about the prophecy that she'll be betrayed three times).

    And there are way more instances of Daenerys acting in a good, noble, and pure way.

    Yes, in season 3 she sacks the city of Astapor. But, in that same season, she also frees the Unsullied, gives them the choice to follow her or not, proclaims that she will never spill the blood of innocents, frees the people of Yunkai, and is visibly happy that she is loved by the people, etc.

    But she said once that she'll burn cities to the ground so now it totally makes sense that she goes from "protector of the world" to "destroyer of the world" in two episodes. Because this is literally what happened. Episode 3: Daenerys risks her life to save the world from the White Walkers. Episode 5: Daenerys, ugh, "goes mad".

    I'm so happy that GoT has disappeared from public memory.

    Last two seasons of GoT.

    Last season of scrubs don't exists.

    Simpsons after, I don't know. Season 12? Too long run.

    Supernatural. Too long run. First four season are gold.

    Dexter. Seasons after rita died pretty much.

    The witcher. SJW and blackwashing just to be woke.

    The dark tower. I love Idris Elba (luther <3) but come on!

    Star wars and Star trek. Giving power to SJW.

    Jack ryan, second season. First one was enjoyable, second season was just a big joke.

    Tons of show that were shit from start and too far from original concept/script that would take ages to list.

    Anything that variates from good script/description in story that I care is automaticly utter trash for me. Different voice actors etc.
    For some blackwash might work since I don't care about them, like marvel. Marvel movies are for drunk-watching and I never got in to most american comics but I have to say I wish as nordic that they never made thor-stuff.

    Donald duck/mickey mouse, mostly translated Topolino. Publishing any of Silvia Ziche works.
    New ducktale comic/series is trash too.

    Hm...okay. The way Shmee said it in the movie ..like "Oh...I never had sex and still got pregnant" to me was in a way of "yeah right....sure...I tried that excuse once...didn't work" and really really tried to sell it as a Virgin Mary moment.

    But then again, I just plainly dislike 1-3. I really exploited the fanboi in me and I wanted to like them. Despite knowing they were just not good. I literally thought I was missing the genius in them, kept rewatching them, buying the DvDs...and still disliking them....but thinking it was me that didn't understand them

    Killing off/retiring/writing out the main character of a show. At that point just end the show because it's all downhill from there.

    Examples:

    Ragnar in Vikings
    Fiona in Shameless

    Yep. I stopped watching shortly after they killed Ragnar off—show went to utter shit. Should have ended it with him.

    Homeland killing off the main character and the best actor it had.

    Leaving it with a crazy women going more and more batshit insane with each season.

    That show just completely fucked itself.

    Next to that - for me - its killing off Ragnar in vikings. I didnt know it at the time but he was apparently the main attraction of the show for me.

    Edit:

    As for GOT i'm not 100% sure how to explain that as a descision. Its more just two of the most ungratefull people i've ever heard of. They where literally given gold, and they shat on it believing they could make gold themselves. Only to find out people arent very forgiving when you ruin their favorite things.

    Karma, karma, karma.

    The PG13 ratings slapped on movies/shows would make for a list hundreds of titles long already.
    One of the most egregious examples in recent films: Robin Hood. X character gets his arm cut clean off by an entirely regular sharp object. Zero.Bleeding. It's a shit movie, but that's where I stopped watching as I'd decided initially to give it a chance. PG13 in itself isn't a bad rating, but I find it horrid when their aim is to tackle very difficult and violent subject matters, only to then also make sure that kids can watch it despite the many fights and shootings and whatnot...

    Any show that's cancelled "just because lol", especially without making sure to wrap up the show first. Most recent example for me: Santa Clarita Diet. As if Netflix hadn't been able to afford a finishing season...

    Annoying kids. I much prefer kids that are NOT annoying little shits. The Incredibles 2 is downright grating whenever that obnoxious middle boy is in frame.

    Shows going on forever and ever and ever... When they start offing the characters that the show began with because they're dragging the show out to a point where contracts run out, I stop following. I'll read a summary on TWD when it finishes. Although to be fair, I was kinda over the show when they killed Shane (one of my fav actors)...

    Because people afraid of social justice (which most of them benefit from as we speak) and awareness of the struggles marginalized groups face, are rarely very bright. Fear is an amazing tool for Fascism to utilize, for a reason.

    I will let you figure out what show I am talking about.
    Man tell me about it...I am still salty as hell because of that.....GoT had the potential to be the best I am serious THE BEST tv show in the world history (I have been watching a lot of tv shows and movies since the early 80s so not anything impress me anymore), but they ruined it after season 4 things started to fall apart and the last two seasons were the last nail in the coffin.

    I also think the cancellation of Stargate franchise is annoying as hell specially the cliffhanger we got at the end of Atlantis series (SG1 is my favorite of all time). I pretend that universe didn't exist tbh.

    Well Universe was very, very slow at the beginning with a few useless episodes here and there, but I really enjoyed the second half of Season 2. Had me hooked, just for that to stop abruptly. It could have been a great show I think, I overall enjoyed the characters there and the mystery about the Destiny's mission could have held our breath.

    Yes but still can't compare it to the legendary SG1 tbh even Atlantis is not as great as SG1 and I still enjoyed Atlantis a lot.

    Whenever I was surfing channels and HBO came up and Watchmen was on, I just rolled my eyes and changed the channel. No wonder the show was ended after just one season.

    Discussing forbidden topics is against the rules. Infracted.
    So that’s the message you got from it? Strange. My take was “racist white people=bad, not racist white people=good.” The only reason I can see to you feeling so attacked would be.....
