While some fans have been happy with the show’s final season and latest episode, many have been deeply unsatisfied with an ending they feel departs from the shows central values.

‘Too Hollywood’, ‘incoherent’, and ‘inconsistent’ are phrases that have been tossed around ever since all of our favourite characters mysteriously survived the Long Night.

Also plagued with editing fails, this season has not quite measured up to fans’ expectations, and now many are calling for the last season to be remade entirely, and we haven’t even reached the final episode.

An online petition, called ‘Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers’ is gaining serious traction online, with over 11,000 fans signing it in a matter of days.

The petition cites incompetent writing for ‘ruining’ the final season, and insists: “This series deserves a final season that makes sense.”

The 10k strong support suggests many fans agree, however there are some that insist people’s dissatisfaction with the final series isn’t a reflection on the writers.

Game of Thrones is not a crowd pleaser, they argue, you’re not going to get the ending you want, you’re going to get the ending that would actually happen.

However others insist the final season is a major let down, even going so far as to suggest season 8 is ruining other, more popular seasons.

Guess fans everywhere are holding their breath for next weeks finale, hoping that somehow the show will win back lost fans and come good.
