Also ya Danaerys story this season is 100% filler and that's pretty annoying. I know a lot of America are just sitting on their couch going OH MY GOD DRAGONS WOW BADASS WHOA WOW WHOA but like they could waste less time on that shit for sure.

It's cool that shit is happening but more and more this season I'm feeling like there's just too much shit happening for a 10 episode season to cover and they're just compounding a bunch of events to rush towards the finale. Like okay, some cool shit started happening in the Iron Islands for like one second, are we never going to see that again? Some cool shit happened with John Snow for like 2 seconds, what's going on with him now? There's so many characters and events and shit for the show to cover I feel like it's impossible for it to really be satisfying. I like start to care about something that's happening and I want to know more but then they just move on to the next thing and FUCK.

I read there's only gonna be like 2 more seasons and they want to make them even shorter? So yeah I don't know I'm getting scared that at this point the show is just going to spoil major book plot points while changing/glossing over everything else and that's kinda lousy.

Oh and I guess Coldhands shows up now and he IS Benjen? What the fuck man. WHATEVER.

I'm ready for the next hype show, please. Something sci-fi, I think.

I mean, this was always going to happen. Like unless GRRM had actually beat the show, they were always gonna eventually spoil the future books. I dunno, I disagree with Dany's story being filler. Fits into the "To go forward you must go back" style of her story. I've loved most of her scenes but then she's one of my favorite characters so perhaps that's just some personal bias.

As to BenHands I think it's clear they're conflating the characters. I believe GRRM when he says Coldhands isn't Benjen, but I also believe Benjen will have a similar role going forward so they decided to just merge the two. All of that pales in comparison to the mad LSH setup we're getting though. The hype is real.

books are better than the show ,but then again books might not be that good either way, too convoluted.
If GRRM wants to tell a story, then why he couldn't do it in 3 books or less.

What's the point on going on so long from a story telling perspective, if he is going to get sidetracked from his original intention when he started writing these.
convoluted ≠ complexity

Right now, both the show and the books are suffering from Lost tv show syndrome.

It's time to move on peoples

But saying that it has to happen doesn't make it good.
And honestly it doesn't have to happen on the scale that they're making happen. Last season how much they rushed to catch up to book 5 when book six doesn't even have a release date really started making the show shittier and shittier. Not even talking about it following the source material, like even if I had never read the books a lot of this shit now I'd be like. Soooooo what the fuck else? And it was one thing when I would sort of mentally fill in what was going on by what I knew from the books but now that there's none of that it literally feels like they're just telling part of a story.

It's still entertaining and cool stuff still happens and MOST of the cast is FANTASTIC so it's never like painful to sit through an ep or anything, but there's no way I can sit here and be like this is the best fucking show ever till the end of time.

And honestly in the books it felt like Coldhands totally should have been Benjen but then GRRM was like no way that's too obvious and easy cheesey so I'm gonna throw in some random shit that makes it so it's not him. So I'm not really mad about them doing that in the show at all, it's just like at this point, FUCK IT.

And the books are deeeefinitely too convoluted and taking way too long to put out, but at least up through the five books I've read it hasn't outweighed how fantastically interesting the story and characters are, and some of the connections he makes to shit that you totally forgot happened a long time ago are really fucking cool. But there's soooo much shit that keeps getting brought up with the show and with me not having read them in a few years that I'm like. Wait who was that? No wait, what was that? What the shit? I thought s/he was over there doing this and this etc etc. He definitely could have told a better more concise story and then did maybe extended universe books which I'm pretty sure he still has anyway so like...fuck.

You can't argue that Dany's shit isn't filler tho. They could have spent 10 minutes showing her getting rescued and starting to travel and that's it. Literally nothing else has actually hapened with her. All her shit is like LOOK AT ME IM THE POWERFUL FEMALE ROLE AND PEOPLE LIKE THAT SO HERES MORE SCREEN TIME AND LOUD MONOLOOOOOGUES. I'm just nit picking, it's not like I'm sitting here scoffing every time she's on screen and going THIS SHIT SUCKS I HATE IT, but it's a definite downside to this season.

FUCK this ruins the Benjen = Daario theory

What I want to know is who the last cylon is. All the clues have pointed toward Danerys, but I feel like that's just what they want us to think.
