    Remember how good this show was once. This is so strange.

    You people are in for it

    Broke as fuck in the style of the times. Gratitude is all that can return on your generosity.

    Yeah... He knows he has to promote it as part of his job, but he simply can not hide how much he hates it.

    Jesus Christ.

    I have never heard such vitriol in "These guys are the best writers in television."

    Like.

    That's sure one way to follow the letter of decorum while also setting it on fire.

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    Remember how annoyed everyone was with the How I Met Your Mother ending? It's going to be like that.

    I actually think it's going to be much worse, if the ending is truly as awful as some suspect

    The one silver lining about the ending being horrible is that I wasn't that miffed when someone signed up for an alt account on these boards just to try and spoil it for me.

    can't help but feel all these weird media interview reactions are bait

    although I guess it's pretty hard to reliably orchestrate something that's so subjective

    i just... actors interview about terrible schlock all the time, and for the headliners of the most popular show in the world to go out in public and mishandle easy questions so bluntly... fishy to me. like a purposeful attempt to lower expectations so that the finale hits a little harder

    You seem a very conspiracy-minded person

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    I think that thinking they are playing 4D chess and having fake reactions is way less plausible than just being very pissed about the show you've been doing for almost a decade (and in several cases literally grew up doing) being totally mishandled and botched in its final season (which was also extremely hard to film).

    It ain't like its just a random shitty movie they did, its been a huge part of their lives for a very long time.

    Especially given...you know, what we've seen so far this season.

    I think the best way to get people hyped up for the finale would be to make the rest of the episodes good rather than sending your actors out to be fake pissed off about it so that everyone drags those clips back up while all your garbage episodes are airing.

    Also I can't fathom the thought that they're doing better acting intentionally randomly on the red carpet than they have been on the show they've regularly appeared on for almost a full decade

  • JansonJanson Registered User regular
    I can’t imagine an ending that will solve all of the current issues and be all cool and twisty on top of that in... two episodes.

    Like I don’t know how you recover Euron or all the sexism or the loss of the night king/dragons

    I would love to see one example of a product marketed as worse than it is to "surprise" people with the quality

    It's a theory I've seen bubble up... kind of a lot, recently? For various things?

    But it isn't how anything has been marketed, like, ever

    New coke is probably the conspiracy example everyone points to thinking this is a thing

    The only thing that weirds me out about these interviews is that these interviews were done months ago but people are only noticing them now. Which makes me wonder if we're just seeing things or reading into it.

    They tried to warn us but we were too blinded by the hype to listen. Just when we thought we were safe and happy, our joy turned into ashes in our mouths.

    I think that because GoT has been a show about subverting our expectations of the traditional heroic fantasy arc it was easy for people to read into the interviews that some terrible things had happened and the actors were reacting to that.

    I don't think it'll be worse. Maybe in volume, since GoT is a bigger show, but the HIMYM ending actively reframed the show as something worse than you thought. There's not really a way for GoT to do that, I think

    I think that while there were certainly bad moments in seasons 4-7, it was mostly good, and the bad bits were spread out enough amongst good moments to keep it mostly on the good side generally, plus there was always next season.

    But the 1 - 2 punch of the battle episode being one of those 'ehhh' episodes, followed by that utter crap they aired last Sunday, has just flung the show off the rails, and we all know there just isn't any way it can be fixed in 2 episodes.

    The show is almost certainly unsaveable. We all watched it for years, and mostly loved it, and it's going to end in a pile of shite, and we all have to watch it happen.

    lol this sucks huh
