I realized that the boring narration, political drama, and dry humor aren’t the main reasons I dislike Game of Thrones. Nope. I stopped watching the show when Stark killed that first dire wolf.
I HATE stories where the dog dies, but I REALLY HATE stories where dogs die senselessly, like in Game of Thrones. Now, say all you want how the dire wolves die doing something, blah blah, “protecting their masters,” blah blah, “symbolism.”
I don’t care. I’m a dog person, and EVERY doggy death is senseless. In my opinion, Game of Thrones should end with all the human characters dead and all the dire wolves (alive) hanging out at Winterfell.
I have other problems with it, like all the boobs (obviously men had a hand in this show), all the backstabbing (it gets old), the constant political nonsense, the lack of a main character, all the character death, the lack of comic relief, TOO MANY characters, the rating level (I would have liked this show a lot more if it had a bit lower of a rating. I mean, I love a good fight scene as much as the next person, but sometimes it throws rape, murder, and mutilation around too much).
It might be different in the books – I barely made it through the first book for the reasons mentioned in the first paragraph. I don’t want to be halfway through a book and feel the need to ask, “What’s the point?”
