Kinda pissed how they left the door open for follow on shit.
Fact #7
From an empirical viewpoint, the problem with Free Will (and causality) is reconciling determinism and freedom to make sense of morality.

Honestly feels like it would have been too clever of a moment or too high of a spot for this largely underachieving, at the best of times just barely adequate season

The Real Reason Fans Hate the Last Season of Game of Thrones: it's not just bad storytelling—it’s because the storytelling style changed from sociological to psychological

my sister sent me this and I don't know shit about the show but I was curious if it rang true for anyone

I feel like I don't enjoy the so-called "sociological storytelling" of early/trve GoT - maybe this is why I have no love for Battlestar Galactica? I just started a first viewing of The Wire (which they cite as sociological) so we'll see how that litmus test goes

I read that article a while ago, and I pretty much agree with it 100%.

It's particularly interesting because the conventional wisdom seems to be that storytelling is either "character driven" or "plot driven", where the former is better, but this basically argues that GoT and similar shows are neither.
