I read Game of Thrones twenty years ago. Long before there was even a hint of a series. I took a stab at the next book and threw it across the room when I got to the Red Wedding.
I was absolutely done with a Song of Ice and Fire from that point on. I never read another one of the novels and I refused to watch the series on general fucking principal. I canceled my subscription to HBO the same year they canceled both Rome and Deadwood, only to replace them with the craptastic True Blood. I never looked back.
I had had friends tell me that I was making a mistake. That Game of Thrones was brilliant and worth coming back for but clearly and obviously I was right all along.
So even Maisie Williams boyfriend had a better read on this show than the show runners.
And good news there!
Kray-Kray Kay-Kay has put them in charge of the next leg of Star Wars.
