  • Rian Johnson, and Abrams to a lesser extent, deserves every bit of scrutiny for Star Wars though. The Last Jedi is in itself a terrible movie. I'm still trying to figure out which is worse though. They might be exactly equal. Danny got Luked. Characters were ruined. Events made no logical sense in how destructive or weak they were (compare Holdo's hyper jump to the dragons dying in 1 episode and wrecking a city and entire fleet in the next). The explanations and themes are nonsensical in both. And both have this "subversive" theme. Let's not downplay how terrible The Last Jedi was...

    • Personally, I think the biggest problem with the new trilogy is that it feels the need to proclaim itself a trailblazer without actually having the ambition to *be* a trailblazer: it wiped out the old expanded universe, it proudly announced that it was going to do new and heretofore unseen things... and immediately proceeded to crib notes from everything they were supposedly trying to get away from. Han's son turning to the Dark Side, the return of the Empire, another new Death Star-style weapon, a mysterious document contained within a droid, a villain so nebulous he might as well be the Emperor, a mask that looked borrowed from Darth Revan, another planet with no canon identity being blown up, a search for a Jedi master living in seclusion, "we can rule together" offers being made by the villain in movie 2, and the hint of the *real* Emperor Palpatine coming back in the third movie... so many things seem to have been borrowed from the original trilogy or the expanded universe that it starts becoming comical after a while. Maybe this is just the inevitable consequence of having to reinvent such a well-established franchise, but it seems *very* samey to me. And without anything new to say or do, the only goal the trilogy sets itself is to be "subversive," because the films desperately need a way of surprising the audience - but because that seems to be the only thing it wants to do, we end up with diminishing returns.

  • What unites people? A tangible common enemy everybody hates and an inspiring leader against them. The night king is the perfect example. Not stories, and definitely not Bran's sorry ass sitting around story. Also I think Daenerys saving people's lives from a fate of being undead would inspire some loyalty. Not just agreeing with politics alone. A debt to be paid.

  • "I used to watch and re-watch the earlier seasons of the show, but now - knowing how it ends, knowing what they're building towards, knowing how nihilistic and stupid and mean it ends up being - there's just no enjoyment in the journey, even, anymore." Every time I see GoT in my watch queue, I think something like this. It's tragic, because the first half was so good. But why watch it, when it just leads to the second half?

  • The "power reveals" instead of "power corrupts" proves a distinct lack of knowledge of what corruption is.Corruption includes the abuse of power by a trusted person in a place of authority. Someone who does the right thing, but doesn't necessarily follow the rules, a robin hood if you will would be a form of corruption, through his power being his skill. When you have the power to avoid the rules to do what you want, people will do what they want, rather that's considered "good" or "bad", it is still corruption.

  • Okay, one note about Jamie's redemption: no he doesn't need redemption for killing Aerys, but he does need redemption for pushing Bran out of a window, and basically everything he he did to the Starks before season three, and everything he did in Cersei's name. That's the redemption arc that was ruined.

    04whim04whim6 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • Yes! It's a bit shit because they could easily have had him end up in King's Landing just with a different motivation: "i can get close to Cersei and kill her, sparing the city from being sacked", or "I'm not a monster any more, I need to try one last time to salvage my twin sister's humanity", or "i never got to be a father to my dead children and if they kill Cersei now that's one more child I won't get to hold". That's three different motives that wouldn't totally undermine his redemption.

  • Why does Sansa have to be “smart?” Why can’t she just be “clever?” The two are not the same thing, but are both commendable attributes. I haven’t read the books or watched the show (though I’m planning on doing the former soon) but it sounds like Sansa and Cersei are the... intimate opposites. They’ve both endured hardships, been put into damning situations by the men in positions of power, but Book Sansa sounds like she holds onto her kindness and care for others, while Cersei casts it aside in her pursuit of power. She’s a schemer, possibly like Sansa, who loathes the world around her for the hand it’s dealt her. And if that’s the case why wasn’t Sansa given a definitive scene to contrast her with Cersei? Was it to “subvert expectations?” Or was it because D&D figured it was more important that Jaime’s character development get borked because “Cersei is his weakness?”

  • I couldn’t even watch your videos until now, because my heart has been brutalized by this ending. It still is. I’m meeting Kit and Gwen next month, though, and I’m trying to muster my enthusiasm for their work (which is spectacular) apart from the scripts they were dealt. It’s there, but I’m hearing GRRM speak the night before I meet them, so I’m going to pretend they starred in the true ending that is to be. I’m going to hope that AI comes along to retcon the last three seasons with these amazing actors in place to provide them the chance to do the work again properly with scripts written by GRRM or Tad Williams or Kermit the Frog, anyone who can do this show true justice! That is all I can hope for at this point. Because, like you, I can’t even watch the earlier seasons of the greatest television show in history anymore.

  • I have a theory: The backslash from Sansa’s rape in Season 05, hoping on the back of the #metoo movement, was more than D&D expected. Worrying about their career prospects in the future if they were labelled “sexist” and “rape apologists”, they over compensated by: - Making Sansa the smartest, smirkiest and most fail proof character in the series. - Deciding Arya would be the one to kill the Night King, instead of John (they said in an interview they decided that around 2016, so the timeline fits). - Making almost every single kingdom ruled by women by the end of season 6 (I don’t really care about this except for Dorne: a dead prince’s mistress and her three bastards daughters killing the rightful heir does not give them ruling rights!) - Pretty much all male characters started giving bad advice and couldn’t come up with a winning strategy. There are other hints that D&D shift gears to appease the woke jury, like Benioff saying in the last couple of seasons that his favorite character is Sansa because... reasons? They were so worried about making these characters “woke approved” that their development suffered. And the story with them.

  • GoT disintegrating into the mess it became after season 4, only goes to show that DnD are completely incompetent at writing on their own. It's like they didn't have a single thought in their head with the last season. But tell me again about how "themes are for eighth-grade book reports."

  • Every time I hear your introduction, I first think the "power reveals" truism applied to DnD. Then you apply it to Daenerys. I remain unsure as to whether you intended both (90% probability), or if I am just reading in the both. As soon as DnD got enough power, BAM, zombie ice bear, fast travel, unbelievable character actions! Even as a very gay very feminist, I wish they had been more interested in showing titillating sex in the last 2 seasons than endless stupid battle and fight scenes and the cringe sex between A/G, J/B, E/C.

  • Another "whoa, Sansa, really?" moment - in either Season 6 or Season 7 she demands that two houses be taken off the descendants of lords who fought with the Boltons (but who have just died in battle). After Jon politely tells her to eff off, the descendants are shown to be two little children. Did the writers really think it was empowering for her to want to turn two children out of their homes for what their parents did?

  • Okay, I'm sorry Lindsay, this was a great video overall and I respect and agree with most of your points EXCEPT the commentary on the North. The North has, historically been apart from the rest of Westeros in terms of culture, religion, customs, and way of life. Which, ofc, all comes to a head when Ned is assassinated and Robb declares the North's independence in season 2. The North's objective in the War of the Five Kings was to gain their independence from Westeros. Robb died for it. Northern houses were destroyed for it. Houses lost heirs to the cause. Sansa was tortured in King's Landing for it. As the age old saying goes, The North Remembers; the dream didn't die with Robb, if anything, the fact that he and thousands of other Northmen died for it makes the cause that much greater. Jon was the son of Ned and the brother of Robb (as far as anyone in the North knew), the Northmen chose him as their king to continue his family's legacy. By bending the knee to Dany, he spat in the face of what Robb and the Northmen died for during the War. Then, ofc, there's the fact that Dany's father burned Rickard Stark alive and executed Bran Stark. Again, the North Remembers. Of course they would be hostile to Dany and her army given what they represent, the end of the North's independence as well as the madness and tyranny of her father. What, Dany can be pissed at Jaime for killing Aerys but Sansa and the rest of the North have to let bygones be bygones with Rickard and Brandon? I'd say Sansa and the rest of the Northmen being hostile to a Targaryen conqueror who threatens to take away their hard won independence makes logical sense, story wise. If anything, it was the one of the only things s8 got right in terns of continuity.

    Bria GreeneBria Greene10 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • Difference here is the North arguably saw that Daenerys was willing to treat them differently than other rulers would. Robb didn't just start the war because he liked independence but because Ned was killed. Who killed him? Not Daenerys. Who moved most of her army up to a cold North and helped save the Northerns? Daenerys. With Daenerys they could see they had someone different and better for them. At this point Sansa wouldn't have cheered Daenerys but all the other Northerners would and did.

      pplr1pplr12 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • Yup. Also explain why the Stark sisters changed the Stark motto to "fuck you, got mine" : they've experienced first hand what happens when they get far from home and get cut off from their family, and when their home is taken over by strangers. That Sansa would want to close ranks with her siblings, and cut the north off from the rest of the kingdoms makes all the psychological sense in the world for someone who's been burned that much.

  • Add Brienne to the list of characters who were done wrong. It made nooo sense that she should end up in the same bed as Jaime. Renly gives her some empathy after she's humiliated ; he sees the value of her fighting abilities, against everybody's opinion : that's where she starts. Her story is getting the respect she deserves, which she gets once Jaime knights her. That much made sense : that's the chemistry they have, the self-respect they gain from the respect they give each other. The knighting felt like a satisfying end : so why tack on that awkward romance/abandonnement thing ? 1) Fan service 2) let's not have a powerful woman without taking her down a peg (Dany's fascist PMS, Cersei's "scared girl" death) and 3) well we need to get rid of Jaime, and we've decided that he should die with Cersei, so what if he slept with Brienne and had second thoughts in the morning? Which makes no sense for Jaime but let's go with that and take down Brienne in the idiocy landslide. And I'm not even talking about the king's guard thing. That's nice for her but why wouldn't hyper loyal Brienne stay with the queen in the north, after she swore her shield to Sansa and her mother?

    Constance McAbreConstance McAbre11 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • @Dominic Bounds Yeah. And Jon not reacting at all to Sansa having Ramsay eaten by dogs. Execution for this psychopath, sure. But this? Jon Snow is cool with this? It should have warned us D&D planned to turn the action-oriented embodiment of Stark morality into the amorphous "but she's mah queen" mess he ended up as.

      Constance McAbreConstance McAbre6 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • @Constance McAbre Or at the very least, some consequences. That was my first hint that the show was *really* going downhill: the lack of any serious repercussions - to Brienne choosing Stannis over Sansa, to Tyrion fucking up yet again, to Not!Elaria murdering her lover's family, to Not!Euron having his entire fleet stolen, to Arya getting virtually disemboweled, to Jon getting caught in a frontal assault that should have killed him all over again, to Cersei blowing up the Sept of Balor. If 5 was the season of fuckups, 6 was the season of plot armour.

  • 1:05:23 The sad truth. I can't even bring myself to rewatch the old episodes based simply on the fact that the ending is a poorly written mess. They not only ruined the final season of the show, but the entire series for me. It just leaves you with the thought of "What's the point?". It's a damn shame really.

  • I love this video, it's a great breakdown and I particularly appreciate your refutation of the argument that Daenerys' turn to insanity or tyranny made any kind of sense. The only thing you didn't mention that drove me nuts was how nonsensical the battle strategies were. Castles have walls for a REASON and cavalry are best used in flanking maneuvers, you do not send them in a frontal assault against superior numbers. The dragons could have been used to take out wights before they ever got to Winterfell's walls and as close air support after. How did this show get to filming without anyone fixing the basic battle failures?

    Bluebyyou 21Bluebyyou 2111 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • @Ana Blaque Yes, the same does go for males. However, males have the non-child version 'guys' to refer to above puberty but not quite considered a mature male. Females don't. The closest equivalent would be 'gals' but unfortunately, it tends to be used in a devaluing manner so while better than girl it is not much better. Sayings/turn of phrases have power. Calling a female a girl groups them in with children, contributing to the continuing infantilization of women, a serious issue contributing to the prevalent sexism in western society. Given all the the things the female characters in Games of Thrones went tthru, the responsibilities they held, the life and death decisions they made, none of them should be implied to be 'just' anything, let a lone a child. It is an insulting excuse, belittling and depowering them, when they were actually strong, amazing woman. FYI: not only is english is my first language but I live in a western society.

    • the same goes for males....... and its just a saying/turn of phrase in the west., I'm sure you don't know English enough to understand that. and just going through puberty doesn't make someone a man or women. they still have to grow up and learn a lot. a post-pubescent 14 yr old male isn't culturally a man yet etc...
