    Honestly all they needed to do is make it 9 or 10 Seasons instead of an 8th Season with only 6 episodes sack the guy that made that decision. Frow in some character development of Dyenerys going crazy prior. Take out the unnecessary fake death sence all over "The Long Night" of the main characters. Don't drastically change the outside of Kings landing right at the end. Instead of making Ayra run away and be shown multiple sence in which she clearly should of died. Give me a fight between her trying to Kill Cerci and Jamie defend her. & Make John the king of the 6 kingdoms at the end.

    i didnt mind it the only thing was it moved to quick and bran should not have been made king and sansa queen in the north they were the only things i didnt like Jon should have after all he went through he deserved that ending in my opinion but over all the ending was okay all the characters are happy or dead and its not a show i was expecting a happy ending so in that respect it surprised me

    There’s simply no excuse for ruining character arch’s because you were rushing to work on starwars. I don’t care what the cast says. Over 50% of the public hated it. All of us who have loved game of thrones feels empty and unsatisfied. The least the writers and the cast can do is be honest about it.

    If they love the ending they didn't deserve the love we gave them for years . They did work hard and it is a++ in acting but a shit with glitter sparkles and all the shimmer and glimmer is still shit . So please get you heads examined please show us the real ending of game of thrones, a story so epic and legendary that even after generation it will rule the throne of stories forevermore.

    No. I think these actors were told by their agents to be more supportive and respectful about how the writers decided to end the series. It isn’t very easy to keep getting roles in the future if one speaks badly about the ending of such an epic series.

    Just the saddest thing to disrespect all these great characters and actors, AND to alienate your audience in one season after 7 of the greatest seasons in TV history. D&D are pure evil selfish fools. AND, it's not about HOW it ended, or where the characters ended up---it's about HOW FAST THEY RUSHED THE FREAKIN' THING. THAT is what is disrespectful to all of us, Ms. Turner.

    i really hope the actor dont think they did anything wrong to contribute to all the outrage. for as long as it was running, GoT was a masterpeice of vfx writing and acting. The final season was nothing short of amazing. the editing and effects/editing were as good as ever as well as the directing and acting. THE WRITERS TOTALLY SPAT ON EVERYTHING THEY BUILT UP AND NOT TO MENTION BOTCHING THE ENDING OF GRRM STROY BC YOU WERE TO SELFISH TO CARE

    Star Wars built up Snoke. Oh this guy is gonna be Vader times a billion bad. Body falls on the floor................ What the fu what nooo wow. Completely wasted a good character but holy crap did the GOT writers pull of an EPIC hold my beer this is how the pros destroy a hyped up character. I was floored. It was just one step above a show getting cancelled leaving everything unfinished. Farscape did that and came back around with a mini series to close it out.

    Have to say I like actors who say how they feel about their own show. Everyone always says it was amazing. A joy to work on. These and those guys are the best. Almost all the cast knew what they wanted to say and walked as fine a line as they could without getting in trouble with the studios.

  • King Petty

    Maybe its me ( i binge watched recently and didn't watch the show when it was active), but i too thought the ending was bad but not for the reasons most fans do. I honestly feel the truly satisfying ending for me wouldve been NOBODY gets a happy ending.. nobody ending is wrapped in a bow. Nobody gets the throne or to be king or queen... the truly satisfying ending is the dead win! You cant make it make sense that that many dead, dragons and giants wouldn't take over once the walls fail. All night king needed to do was fall back and keep raising up the dead. Everybody would've died for their treachery

  • lollypop2414

    Actors do interviews to promote awful movies or television series they're in all the time. It's extremely rare for an actor to go on a talk show and say "yeah my movie sucks" or "this season of the show I'm on is awful" because they sign contracts saying they won't say anything bad about the movie/show/studio/producers etc. No doubt the cast of GoT know how awful the last season is, but it will be years before they can admit it, and quite frankly it's not their fault, so I'm willing to give them a pass for lying.

    No even one soul defending GOT. GOT and GOT directors that you are crying about gave you at least 7 very enjoyable years. I get it that you are disappointed. First actors are humans, they are first that were fed up with the show. Many of them was ill mentally, some actors wanted to quit like Jon Snow after Season 5. They were all under high pressure. Sam actor when he was fighting dead walkers was really crying in that scene for example. R.R. Martin have't finished book for 30 years yet we want from directors to swallow all in 1 season that could easily be wrapped up in 3 or 4 seasons. Half actors would go away, then you will be disappointed again. They had to swallow bitter pill and wrap up everything and they rushed. It is pain when you build up characters for so many season then unwrapped like this. Not big deal that Arya killed NK, but everything was happening fast. It is good that no one at least small percentage of us could predict that. Many spit on directors like the same directors did'nt do a great job, you are all perfect and ya'll know all. But comon guys don't be cunts as Sandor Clegane would like to say and show at least some respect. At vary least how ever bad season 8 was compared to all other seasons it was good

    I'll be honest, the ending was extremely disappointing. But for fans to demand a redo is just unrealistic. 1st) who's gonna pay the millions of dollars it will cost to reshoot a whole nother season?
    Then getting the whole Cast,crew, back together on top of whatever else they are doing? Then the possibility that some or most don't want to do another season? But as far as most the celebrities who have left bad/mad reviews on the final season, then all the sudden came around. I really feel as though their initial reactions are their true feelings. But for alot of them their careers are taking off from GoT. So it's more of a saving face to not hurt their career by actimg professional and not saying negative things about GoT.

    This was a great video to watch for anyone who thinks that the GoT last season was "disappointing". I have revised my view to "not what I would have thought of but was there any ending possible that would have been good enough?" But those first reactions from the cast show the exact feelings I had - like Peter Dinklage, Emily Clarke, even 'Bran' saying it was a joke. Just a TV show.

  • tokyworld

    I can understand why the actors changed their mind (via pressure from producers and even HBO itself) , but unless this vid was "sponsored" by HBO it's really a heavy handed rationalization. The writing sucked, every script writer with 2 cells on their brain eviscerated the writing on many many videos on youtube. for fucks sake, there's no sugar coating that. D&D show never write, I feel for star wars fans. Their lore is about to be buttfucked with their pants on.

We know how you all felt before hbo all slapped you on the wrists and said defend us and say it’s “art” or you all aren’t getting your Emmy. The story doesn’t seem finished in my eyes, there just doesn’t seem to be a point for characters like Jon and dany to have gone through so much just for them to end with nothing but heartbreak in the end while characters that did nothing to deserve the positions they got did.

    I like the ending . It went against everything we knew and expected which was the theme of the show in whole. Tyrion wasn’t as wise as he believed ultimately leaving him confused. Dany proved that she is her fathers daughter and Jon ended where he always felt at home . He never wanted the crown or to break his vows to the watch. Bran becoming the true king will ultimately bring a better world . Jon was too weak and too pure to rule. Bran isn’t even much of a man anymore more of a beacon
