‘Game of Thrones becoming one of the biggest television shows speaks volumes about its prestige. The Red Wedding and Battle of the Bastards were everywhere from 2011 to 2019, regardless of whether you understood what was happening. Each episode generated discussions about the activities of this exceptional cast of characters.
The conversation was left out of your hands if you were not up to date, and you avoided spoilers at every turn. There was high expectation for the final season, especially since it would be the climax of the series.
As a whole, season 8 received mixed reviews if you weren’t there. Almost in a way, I feel sorry for the people behind “Game of Thrones.” Popular things, whether they are movies, television shows, or music, are subject to a lot of criticism. Internet users can surely rationalize these things, can’t they? After watching those two last episodes, a large group of people, including myself, began watching the show.
As soon as the reactions poured in, those associated with the series became aware of them. The Emmy award-winning actor Peter Dinklage, who won a Golden Globe for his role in the HBO show “Game of Thrones,” has continued to defend that show, even more, saying jokingly just last year in an interview with “The New York Times” that he believed the show’s fans expected to see “the pretty white people ride off into the sunset together,” but that the show had subverted those expectations, which made it more entertaining.
The star of “Cyrano” shared his thoughts on fan criticism, as well as his explanation for why he thought the criticism was so significant. Dinklage is trying to convey something, even if it’s a little misplaced here. “The Last Jedi,” for example, is one of my favorite movies, but every time I see it trending on social media, I cringe, knowing it is fueled by such toxic fandoms.
The last season was rushed and emotionally unfulfilling for some, however, there was plenty of solid foundation to support criticism when it came from the right place. There is no such thing as catering to everyone, and this mad dash to the finish line did irreparable damage to one of the most beloved television shows. There was no denying that “Game of Thrones” had several problems, but let’s not lose sight of the fact that Dinklage’s exceptional performance was never one of them.
