Why? This was the best season they've done so far

the best season? they rushed through the whole story. barely any buildup to any of the scenes, just quickly tick off one plot point after another.

I also think they could have easily done a regular 10 episodes in this season and give some screen-time to a lot of other characters, which in turn would have made the pacing less inconsistent with previous seasons. But this is the common complaint about season 7. I think the showrunners and HBO believed that the viewers wouldn't have patience for that, but then they forget that 90% of GoT's appeal was character building and dialog, not just special effects and battles. What bothers me the most perhaps is that John STILL doesn't know his true heritage, and they will be dragging that horse into the last season.

Unfortunately this is now what it has become. The final season, which will be just a minor 6 episodes, will no doubt feel even more rushed. I cannot imagine how they can tie up the remaining story-lines in just 6-8 hours. That being said, the special effects this season were very well done, beating most top budget movies. This probably caused a lot of the show's budget to get used up however, and potentially is also why we only got 7 episodes.

Here we go then, over a year left to wait to see this story ends. It'll be strange not having such a big series to follow anymore, and I doubt any of the upcoming spin-off series will be as big as GoT itself was, since none of them will be sequels to the current story, and featuring none of the current characters.

I do think we owe GoT a few things. It raised the bar for series as a whole and made them more appealing to both viewer and cast/crew. The show took the spotlight away from 90 minute movies and highlighted that there is a huge interest in coherent season based series with deep character building. They are the modern day books.

I enjoyed this season even through the rushed plot points. It was a nice change of pace compared to last season and I too agree that GoT raised the bar as far as film making in general.

I don't know what the future holds for WestWorld but that's my next favorite show that has a similar "touch of class" feel to it like GoT.

I don't know if any of you guys watch Netflix series but Jason Bateman did one called Ozark that is on a pretty good level. It's up there with Narcos and the first season of True Detective

incest ftw

Otherwise, actors getting old, series rushed out. It's great, but it's hard to top for itself.

Only the movies are good. Any random book you pick in a library is better than the song of ice and fire series.
