    I'm willing to bet that George R.R. Martin does not know how to end his Ice and Fire series. I have seen this a lot where some author or show runner creates an increasingly complex narrative web with a constantly expanding expectation of a grand ending from the consuming fans. The problem is, how does anyone fulfill a nearly infinite fan expectation?

      did he just say that he doesn't think the last 2 books of a song of ice and fire are popular? you're beginning to sound pretty stupid

        The vast majority will always only know of the trash TV version so why would a rich man waste any more of his very limited remaining lifespan trying to please a dwindling few who will never change that reality.

            All martin has to do is sit there and dream up the overall plot that he want to see, and the rest can be done by hack writers, he doesnt have to sit there and dream up every detail, just come up with a really compelling narrative and let other people fill in the blanks...

              GOT is dead, season 8 just killed it.
              Jon Snow heritage was just forgotten and nothing of it when he should have been torched by a dragon to show the world he should be the one true king...
              Absolutely brilliant TV series that ended in the toilet

                  Before S8, I was super excited for the prequels, even thought I knew they'd never be as good as GoT. Now I couldn't care less, not even going to watch any of them. That's how detached I have become from this story that has consumed my life for 5 years

                      The other prequel “Blood Moon”, is going to be woke trash. It’s supposed to take place in Westeros in the north 10,000 years before GoT. The producers and writers shoe horned black actors into roles, then later realized that there are no black people in the north, so instead of making the people from the summer isles or Essos, they are going to make them black because they are cursed. Like really? You just made your show accidentally racist trying to be woke without actually reading the source material, good job HBO.

                        The sad thing is this: if Martin doesn't finish the series, the HBO ending will be the only one there will be. As it is, it's not really Martin's series anymore: he is writing the book adaptation of the television series now, rather than the other way around.

                          I actually liked the prequel short stories "the knight of the seven kingdoms", its refreshing seeing Plantos from a poor person perspective.
                          I don't think you understand what prequel means, the tales of Dunk and Egg are the original prequel.

                                  April 2019. The month that ruined GoT forever. The month that took a good two weeks out of my life trying to cope with the fuck up that was series 8. 4 months later I though I was over it, coming back to this site to find out prequels are in the making, old fattie still hasn't finished the book that noone wants to read anymore. Sorry I am leaving. This time for good. Noone ever mention GoT to me again. I am so done and still angry.

                                    Game of Thrones lost me when they took a little girl that we had all watched grow up and gave her a nude sex scene. Sorry HBO, but the majority of your fanbase is not into "daddy daughter" shit.

                                          I would watch a Dunc and Egg show, really enjoyed the book. Surely it would be a cheaper show to create also? Since there are no dragons or massive battles.
                                          Just seems like Martin is scared to finish the main story now it has been sacrificed on the alter of Dumb and Dumbers careers. But that won't stop him milking the franchise as much as possible.

                                            I find it kinda weird that you defend the last two ASOIAF books. They're terribly written. Unless you just really have a thing for turtles.
                                            "Tyrion had glimpsed a dozen different sorts: large turtles and small ones, flatbacks and red-ears, softshells and bonesnappers, brown turtles, green turtles, black turtles, clawed turtles and horned turtles, turtles whose ridged and patterned shells were covered with whorls of gold and jade and cream. Some were so large they could have borne a man upon their backs. Yandry swore the Rhoynar princes used to ride them across the river. He and his wife were Greenblood born, a pair of Dornish orphans come home to Mother Rhoyne."
                                            Oh, and I guess if you really wanna find out where whores go.

                                              He's also writing for a Dark Souls clone called Elden Ring. He's out there doing literally anything but writing Winds of Winter.

                                                imagine comparing Fire and Blood to the season 7 and 8, your opinion is absolutely worthless and completely irrelevant after that. Fire and Blood is easily beyond anything since season 5.

                                                  You have no right to criticise george for milking it when you probably can't even write anything remotely close to his books. Also don't just assume he can finish it whenever he likes, ASOIAF isn't that easy to write obviously. Jesus i can't imagine how brainless this guy actually is to say he has no desire to finish it or he would......

                                                          The problem, besides lazy writing, I think the Hollywood has is this need to write simple easy stories because they have such a low opinion of consumers they feel anything too complex will be rejected. Part of that I think comes from what they consider "Deep" is often just political pandering garbage which is just as shallow if not more so than much of their other works.

                                                          This I think is why Game of Thrones did so well, as it was a breath of fresh air in a rather stale market. There wasn't the hero always wins because they are the hero and the villain always fails because they are evil. It was more like real stacks where one wrong move could result in death no matter how righteous or villainous you were. It created a sense of tension where character felt more believable and the victories felt truly earned.

                                                                Makes ya wonder why there is such a cult following around GRRM's works when it's generally agreed upon that his "Silmarillion" sucks... I mean c'mon if the overview is bad how can you in good faith stand behind the rest of the work? The whole thing is tedious and uninformed. This is the fantasy writer who referred to "wyverns" as "dragons" and thought he had invented the idea of them.

I dont even care if he doesn't finish the books. I mean then I wont have to read the books to justify how horrid that tv ending was. I think that ending broke my intrest in this story.

                                                                        • Special Agent Bill Maxwell

If they go for Fire and Blood, I would hope they'd focus on the Dance of Dragons. But I'll wait and see how it looks before I renew an HBO subscription. I get the feeling they're going to run this into the ground however.

So why are they launching into more series which presumably will become equally expensive? Have they put a cap of stars fees this time or banned them form seeking other work that ups their price tag?
