Twitter Thread Explains Why 'Game of Thrones' Feels Like a Much Different Show Now


At one point, Game of Thrones was the most beloved program on television. And while it's smashing viewership numbers with its latest season, longtime fans are very disappointed with the way the series is ending.

In fact, many are calling Season 8 the worst in the show's history, lambasting each new episode as feeling "rushed" despite the longer run time and the actions of the characters feeling "unearned."

Martin have done a fantastic job keeping viewers guessing and advancing the plot in satisfyingly surprising ways over the years, there's no doubt things have fallen off a bit in recent episodes.
