I don't remember who said it or where (it might have been here on PA) and I make no claim to the originality of this statement, but I definitely think it feels true:
The first 5-6 seasons of Game of Thrones feel like they were based off of books and were adaptations of an existing story. By contrast, the last few seasons of GoT feel like they were written off of a bullet point list of high-level plot beats and there's almost no story there at all. It just moves from beat to beat with no transition at all.
Which is probably exactly correct, since Weis and Benioff sat down with GRRM and had him give them exactly that, a high-level bullet point list of where he intended to take the story.

I guess the silver lining is this: By the time he finishes the last book, the tv show will probably be 20 years in the past and I'll have forgotten some of what I know. :p

It's amazing how this one series is considered something that everyone knows, loves, and watches. Inescapable, just like advertisements. High fantasy as a setting is so played out and boring by exposition that I cannot even take anything based in that setting seriously or with any interest (Yeah, that includes Lord of the Rings too Tolkien fans, fight me). How are people not utterly bored to tears the second they reveal this is the backdrop for whatever story is told? I wouldn't mind an accurate middle ages portrayal, if they could do anything besides glamorize it like an old spaghetti western.

I just noticed the little "And Amy" addition to the credits on this one. That's cool.
