I think for shows I cared about it was HIMYM, Dexter and Sons of Anarchy. The Seinfeld finale wasn’t great but played its part and isn’t that bad after all.
Jon Snow and Dexter ended up with the same ending but that’s what Jon wanted so it wasn’t a bad ending.
HIMYM last season was a train wreck that could have been saved by a good finale but the way they did it was horrendous.
i think Dexter takes the cake because I will still argue that S4 is one of the best seasons of TV ever, it was all downhill from there but the finale almost nailed it but the final scene was just hot garbage.
@zruiz7 I think that’s a bit strong, I thought he sounded no more disappointed than a majority of other fans.
I’m not saying you’re wrong I also want you to take a step back and think about his journey with the show. He started the pod with Mad Brew and went crazy on book lore and theories. He also spent an incredible amount of time trolling through theories and tinfoil bullshit like Varys is a mermaid or Dario is Euron.
He did all of that so that strangers around the world could discuss something they loved and he might not ever see anything out of it monetarily. Then at the end all the big theories and ideas people have had for 20 years get proven, Yada yada’d or just thrown out with no real worry of the impact on fans. Ie R+L=J was bought up after the first book sooo long ago but it meant nothing really.
I can understand he is hurt as a fan even though he declared fan bankruptcy but my take was he ended up putting so much time into this endeavour and the guys making it couldn’t have cared less and just wanted to get onto the next project.
The Double D’s will catch some blame but in the end it’s a combo of them and GRRM not finishing the book. I’m pissed at both of them but for different reasons.
As a fan that watched Dexter from the start of that series I was having some PTSD going into this but I think they redeemed it even if Jon copies the ending.
This wasn’t a bed shitting moment and that makes me really happy. We were heading into Dexter, S.o.A and HIMYM territory (on a grand scale) but ultimately I think they steadied the ship.
I think the series ended up similar to The Wire and The Shield below average last seasons with a finale that closed the books. This finale wasn’t on that level but in the same ball park.
