The people have spoken.

A petition has emerged on Change.org 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 Change.org 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.

If the walls are thin... all information is fair game. The secrets that are exposed, the lies uncovered, the heartache, the joy..... heck, things we can listen from our neighbor's lives can be better than any telenovela. So many buildings are built so paper thin (thank you slumlords of NYC) that listening is unavoidable. And Lord do the neighbors have issues.

Food, like art, is objective. What we all feel in our mouths is a private thought. Our bodies are chemically defined in so many ways. How we indulge in taste is our our journey. However... somethings don't belong together. Like, it's total revolt against humanity. And pizza is the basic food life force. Don't get crazy with pizza... pizza is beautiful already.

Weddings are an emotional day for everyone involved. With so many different emotions in the air, ranging from happiness to queasiness to, you can bet something is sure to go wrong. By "wrong," of course, we talk about the moment when a priest or pastor asks if anyone has any objections to the union of the two people and someone feels inclined to say, "I object!"

Have any of us really thought about the Megalodon? Like, really think about it? Something that large and that intimidating once lived on the planet where it needed to live, eat, and breed. Meaning there was more than one! That's insane to truly comprehend, but the scarier thing is there were once other creatures outside our imaginations that once roamed, or still roam, the Earth.
