Season 5 of Game Of Thrones sucks y’all.
It’s really terrible and not in a fun way just in a, boy this show sure was great and this season sure sucks a lot way.
Littlefinger selling Sansa to the Boltons?
The subsequent rape of Sansa?
Maergary And Loras being stuck in prison most of the season.
No dragons for most of the season?
Melisandre and Stannis burning Shireen?
The season isn’t without it’s bright spots, but generally and genuinely sucks. Those bright spots? “Hardhome” is pretty amazing. I actually enjoy most of the Mereen stuff, even though Martin has said it’s what’s caused him the most headaches writing wise. (I can also see that.) Sansa and Theon’s escape from Winterfell is both thrilling and cathartic. And I’m in the minority who likes Arya As No One. Season 5 is just a whole lot of place setting and it’s not particularly compelling to watch. Or frankly, to read. A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons are largely considered the weakest books. I personally love Crows, because I ❤ Cersei, but it’s pretty messy.)
Anyway, this week we’ll cover seasons 6 & 7, which are just better than season 5 by virtue of being kind of bonkers, the good guys winning a lot, and making most of the country root for incest.
