The people have spoken.

A petition has emerged on regarding the final season of Game of Thrones.

The fans have called for a remake of the series, but with a different writing staff.

The petition, entitled 'Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 With Competent Writers', makes a plea for the writers to be replaced, as they feel the show has been declining.

Their page, run by a person by the name of Dylan D., states the following:

"David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on.
"This series deserves a final season that makes sense.
"Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!"

There is clearly a significant emotional response to the quality of the current season of Game of Thrones.

It has proven to be a controversial series for many, claiming that the show has become "half-assed" and "abysmal", according to the petition's comment section.

Others feel that the eight years of character development has been wasted.

Wendell Edwards, one of the fans who signed the petition, had this to say in the comments:

I"t felt like watching a shallow blockbuster movie (which are fun when you go into it knowing that's what you're getting!), and felt like the showrunners took the easy way out by flattening characters and the use of spectacle. I'm shocked not at how the story progressed, but at how much discontinuity there is between this season and previous ones."

However, many have been poking fun at the 35,000 or so fans that have signed, tweeting about how they clearly feel entitled regarding certain elements of the latest season.

This isn't the first time fans have called for a piece of pop culture to be remade. Many Star Wars fans signed a petition to remake The Last Jedi, after being disappointed by the film's release.

What fans see as unpopular decisions within a film or TV show or video game, is simply how the writers' felt they should tie up all of the loose ends of a story.

No matter what a writer puts out into the world, there will always be people who criticize it. It's just a part of the creative industry, and there is no pleasing everyone.

Let's hope this inspires George R. R. Martin to finish his last two books.

Robinson declined the invitation in the most epic way possible.
