Someone summerize the end with as few words as possible... for people who never watched the show and never will.

Best first four seasons of any show ever made, excellent 5th and 6th season still better than most shows.  Rushed 7th and 8th season devastating 23 years of devoted reddit book fan theories.

That was a tough couple of weeks man, didn't realise how much anger and shit it was cuasing me on Monday's. Yesterday I had a peacful Bank Holiday Monday and enjoyed the hell out of my time instead of being pissed off at this show. Fuck the prequels, I couldn't care less for them.

The other day I realized that Game of Thrones ended, but it doesn't feel like it. Because I haven't been thinking of, or felt anything, towards how the story ended for the characters, as I normally would after a long time running series ends.
The only time it ever came up in my mind was really when I read threads like this.

It's almost as if it didn't happen, while I'm not looking forward to what's going to happen next.

Pretty weird.

In parralel universe we are ranting down this thread about how fucking awesome it was, I hope.

Months later, videos about how the show ended are still trending on youtube worldwide. The video is too long, but the part that starts at 46:00 onward is well-thought out.

Funny. It has been months and still pisses me off as much as when the episode came out. More so, even.



I didn't even watch Season 8, I already knew it was dead and unsalvageable since Season 7. I did get a lot of enjoyment from hearing how badly it went down so I'll give it that haha.



Seems like some still have a pitch and a fork over the shitty end of the series =´p

Right, it's time to find a new fantasy series of books until George gets his ass in gear and the wheel of time aint doing it for me. It's too early to read GoT again, got to a few chapters i to A clash of kings and it 's still making mr angry because half the shit I'm read eventually turns out to mean nothing or go anywhere and all thread that aee badly handled.

Anyone gots a series that has mature themes, doesn't need to be a saga but a trilogy of books would be ideal. Preferably old enough for a conclusion o fthe horizon but if new at least a soft cover release. Audible would do if it has a talented VA or multiple VA.

The mistborn series is amazing. It's a trilogy, but there is a second "era". But the main story is the trilogy. Highly recommend them. It's by Brandon sandersob

There is the witcher series of course. 

There is " the riyria revelations" series. By Michael jay Sullivan. I'm in the first book, it's a series of 6 books, that's the main story. But there are prequels. But they republished the books and added the first and second together. 3rd and 4th together and 5th and 6th together. So it can be considered a "trilogy".  

There is also the emperors blade by Brian staveley. Good book IMO. It's also a trilogy and its finished. 

While it's more of a super hero/fantasy/sci fi series. There is "the reckoners" series by Brandon Sanderson. I read the first book. It's great fun. Though it is young adult so it doesnt deal much with adult themes as Mistborn series does

Then there is also the storm light archive by branden Sanderson (he Is amazing, and writes a lot) its not a finished saga yet. And it will take a long while to finish. The books are long as fuck. I actually found a print that has the first and second book separated into 2 parts each. So I got them. That way they are 4 regular sized books. However the reviews and word of mouth on the series is very good

There is also "king killer chronicles". By Patrick rothfuss. It's a very different style of fantasy. I read the first book, and have the second. The first one was very good. I would recommend it. But it's not your epic, massive GoT style fantasy. It's a more personal type story centred around one character. 

If you like scifi there is the expanse series by james Corey. It's really good. It's not done yet but the writer successfully released a book each year for the past 8. It's a 9 series saga. So it will finish soon. 

Then there is of course the dune saga. It's a classic and considered the father of sci-fi/fantasy books with amazing and deep world building. I really likes the first book. The second was a huge disappointment though IMO. But its Dune. It's a classic so I'd recommend at least the first 



I feel vindicated after this series failed. The ending was a joke of epic proportions. I look forward to the books having their own unique problems based on all the characters whom were written into unredeemable corners and the fact that there's about 10x the amount as there is in the show. Although I admittedly hate watched the show in disgust, part of me wish it succeeded so the bar for good television could be raised higher. The fans honestly deserved better. The last few seasons just ruined the work of thousands of people and several actors who basically devoted their lives to their role. So it's hard not to feel a little bad.
