I think I mentioned in the thread that it's reminding me a lost of LOST in that the showrunners simply don't know how to end any of the plot threads.

This series of GoT has just been the "Jacks Tattoo" episode, but x5 so far.

The thing is Lost wasn't planned past the pilot. They made it up as they went along. It was always going to be a struggle to tie it all together especially in a way that nobody had guessed.

This is based on source material that has been carefully planned out by an author. It shouldn't have the issues Lost had. I know the books aren't completed but do they not have GRR Martin involved? If not, why not?

It is still genuinely upsetting how poor series 6 of Lost was. I did enjoy the very end, but that is probably because of how much I loved the show between series 1-5. The main content of series 6 was truly awful. Literally just walking around the island and utterly destroying the until then intensely interesting character of Jacob.

Game of Thrones is different for me. It's like watching a massive car crash where the people inside are only dummies, so you can enjoy the fascination of the destruction. It's probably because I never loved it anyway.

Oh, definitely, Ob. I hugely enjoyed seasons 1-5 but 6 was disappointing and forgettable.

I gave up on Lost some point mid season 2, it clearly didn't know what it was doing and there's only so long you can put up with that!

Season 3, especially after the mid-season break was where it all started rolling downhill for me. I was still invested in the characters, but I remember watching Ben and his strawberry floating rabbit walking up a hill revealing they were on another, separate island and wondering where the hell they were going with it all.

Pro tip: Spot a person who's never watched any decent TV by listening for "The Constant" when they're asked about favourite episodes of television.

You know it's true. The start of LOST was great. The Constant was terrible.

Last series was gooseberry fool on the whole but it had it's moments.

1-3 were godly though. I strawberry floating loved all the hatch stuff.

The time travel dharma stuff was awful though - take all the mystery and things that don't need to be said and spell it all out midichlorian style.

I never watched a single episode of Lost. Just somehow managed to avoid it, despite all the hype at the time it was on.

I'm currently watching S2 of American Gods and that's starting to be a bit of a chore to watch, its all very well produced but strawberry float me is it slowly paced, without going into spoilers I'm finding the whole Laura sideplot incredibly tedious and just wish they'd hurry up and resolve it so the focus can return to the main plot.

If you consider S2 of Lost to be godly then you need to learn to hold your deity's to a higher standard. It was a load of aimless shite! :lol:

Lost was for a time an excellent show that I looked forward to like no other week after week. Once Ben turned the wheel and the "When are we" stuff started happening, that's when it started going downhill. Everything prior to it was very good. Well, almost everything.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Lost might have been good if it had done terribly so they had to end it after two seasons.

I'd really like it if they'd used Lost's approach to pacing for Game of Thrones.

So, for example, after the red wedding cliffhanger, they'd follow up on with an episode where Jon, Tyrion and the Hound have a round of Golf.
