Subverting Expectations Is Tight

Thanks for the heads-up on this guy, Monkeystador. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Game of Thrones is one of the most popular TV dramas of all time, and fans were pumped to see what the creators had in store for its final season. However after a few episodes, GoT fans started to have some questions about the way D.B. Weiss and David Benioff were wrapping up their favorite show. Like what’s up with Daenerys becoming pure evil so quickly? Why isn’t anyone talking about Jon being the rightful heir to the throne? Was that really the end of the Night King? Are scorpions more powerful, or are dragons?

To answer all these questions and more, step inside the pitch meeting that led to Game of Thrones Season 8! It’s super easy, barely an inconvenience!


Every Marvel pitch meeting in order of MCU Timeline, because you aren’t actually going to work today, are you?

  1. I watch the GoT 8 pitch meeting every couple of months. The steady decline in Season 7 and utter shitshow of Season 8 left me so pissed off. The show itself was bad enough, but even the podcast I listened to mirrored the decline – they tried to be fanboys til the end, and it was hard to take. I stopped downloading it.
    Pitch Meeting Man gets it.

    When it was good, Thrones was so fucking good.
    Jaqen H’ghar, where are you?

  2. I’d watch it through the end of Season 6.
    Some profound moments, incredible television production values, and you’ll understand your Thrones memes.

    The problem is: once you’ve watched that much you’ll feel compelled to watch Seasons 7 & 8.
    But it’s a prime example of the fallacy of sunk cost.
    Don’t do it! Heed my warning!
