Rushed & Predictable
23 July 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge Game of Thrones fan, but I can't help but feel extremely disappointed after watching these two episodes.

What happened to the seamless story progression Game of Thrones had from season 1 to season 6? It's been completely abandoned. Yes, I am aware the season has been cut down to 7 episodes, but the transitioning throughout this episode as well as episode 1 has been atrocious. One scene we have Daenerys requesting for a letter to be sent to Jon Snow, and in the scene following right after that, Jon snow reads the letter! Talk about rushing!

The notion I get from this is that we'll have more slow paced and choppy story progression up until the final couple of episodes. A template for all generic 1-6 star TV shows. Such a shame really. Clearly the writer's are struggling to continue this show. It has most certainly become apparent in these first two episodes.

Fortunately though, the TV show is coming to an end. If it were to go on past season 8 they would have completely destroyed this show like the writer's for Dexter season 6 and beyond did.

Such a shame really.
