Ozzy Man NAILS my take on GoT ep5 and the season overall

SPOILERS at all links

I’ve become a fan of his videos in general and this one is like he read my mind. Watch the whole thing, he does a ribald, sweary kind of send up summary first, then comes a nicely nuanced and considered review. (NSFW language)

Final series scene will be George RR Martin waking up in a recliner surrounded waist deep in snack food wrappers.
"It was all just a dream."

As we pan away, George's wife Cersei is arguing with youngest Arya about her dating the much older Gendry, depressed teen son Jon mopes around the house in pajamas and hair-dyed teen daughter Sansa thumbs obliviously into her iPhone....While pert blonde neighbor Dany and her blond boyfriend Jamie knock on the door to invite the family over for a barbecue. (Jamie mouth and gestures 'phone me' to Cersie and both smile knowingly at one another.)

George's lawyer Varys, former high school football buddies the Cleganes and his back doctor Qyburn show up for their weekly poker game.
George reaches for another cookie in the jar beside him on the end table (Tyrion)

There’s a frantic rapping at the door, George’s editor, again, “DAMMIT George, I know you’re in there!! I need the rest of that manuscript now!!”

George looks around wide eyed, grabs up a nearby yellow legal pad and pen and starts writing down as much of the dream as he can remember...

You obviously know Red Smith’s quote, "Writing is easy. You just open a vein and bleed." big grin smiley

Has there been any TV show series that ended well?
An ending that "superfans" were very happy with.

You're right; it's hit or miss. I can recall a few that stand out in my memory. And not all are superfan-perfect endings; you're right about that.

Parks and Rec had a pretty spot-on finalé.

Ditto Six Feet Under; its final sequence -- those last 10 (?) minutes -- was perfect.

I know not many enjoyed how they wrapped up Battlestar Galactica, but I quite liked it, especially Kara's story arc and what she turned out to be. (And especially b'c they had no plan whatsoever and were basically winging it.)

I still talk about the final episode of Quantum Leap with people who watched the series. It may not have been a perfect ending, but it was memorable.



Make it a good day today.

Thousands of Game of Thrones Fans Sign Petition Demanding Season 8 Remake

what is wrong with these people?

Democracy sometimes misleads people into thinking that what they want matters to other people.
