Well when you consider how the show was paced before to what it is now that is a valid complaint depending on what you want out of the show. Characters are pretty much just teleporting around Westeros. Must have unlocked the fast travel option.

The storytelling quality if significantly worse and its become more of a summer blockbuster but without the books to guide them that was a trade that is ultimately for the best.
It was time for the show to pick up pace.

I've thought about going back to watch them all, but I also wouldn't mind just reading the books as well.

They don't have the time to take 3 episodes to travel from Winterfell to Kings Landing anymore, we all know how long it takes by now so they don't really need to keep showing us every step of every journey, we should just accept that time passes between what we saw before and what we are seeing now. Like when Varys was on Dany's ship people complained because he was just in Dorne, do they not think that time had to have gone by to get the fleet ready and hell even to make that awesome dragon head for the front of her ship? They don't need to hold our hands and fill in every second anymore, there just isn't the time. The episodes were bound to get bigger because the army building is done and now all of the players are in place not to mention we have full grown dragons so yeah that's going to make things more of a spectacle than they were before.

I have never seen this show. But I figured with it being so popular, I should check it out. I just ordered season 1 in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. I am looking forward to seeing if this is a show I will like.

You sir are in for a treat. I wish I could go back and watch it all over again for the first time.

The previous season was incredibly disappointing due to its predictability, fan-service, and lack of wit from the earliest seasons, when GRRM's writing was used. I don't have high hopes for the final season. I'm expecting the Starks and Dany to win and live happily ever after.

RR had a strong hand in it if memory serves.

Don't think so. He used to write an episode a season but stopped.

Well its still going to be his ending so I doubt we will see that kind of happy ending. They definitely aren't capable of writing the show well without the books to go so yeah I don't expect great story telling. I'm just here for the spectacle and to get some (and the only ever) kind of conclusion.

Season 7 was amazing, sure this last season will be as well.
