Game of Thrones Season 6 Thoughts

Welp, that's a wrap folks. Game of Thrones Season 6 is officially in the books. I mean it's not in the BOOKS yet, it's just that it's over. Whatever, I've been sick since Saturday. Also I make fantastic decisions like watching Game of Thrones last night starting at 11pm instead of going to bed early, so I'm so very tired. Also I played a bunch of Overwatch. Why does it feel like I'm on trial here?

Back to the subject at hand, Season 6 of Game of Thrones was highly anticipated because the show has finally passed the books. There were one or two small plot points that still pulled from the books but most of it was brand spanking new. It definitely changed the way I watch the show. I still download it because I don't have that HBO skrilla, but the last few seasons I've read recaps and embraced spoilers before watching episodes. I didn't even watch the final episode until months after it aired. This year I was downloading that ish as quickly as I could though and I'm avoiding spoilers like greyscale.

Overall I thought the season was very good. The last two Fire and Ice books felt like GRRM was just spinning his wheels. Taking as long as possible moving the pieces around for a big finale. Season 6 was also about moving the pieces around for the final conflict, but instead of Tyrion jousting on the back of a pig you had the Battle of the Bastards, which was absolutely epic. It'll be interesting to see how things unfold next season as it will be the second to the last. It feels like everything is about to boil over to the final conflict right now, so I'm interested in seeing how the showrunners draw things out without making it feel like they're drawing things out. They've already confirmed that the last two seasons will be shorter than usual so I guess that will help.

Now if we could just get GRRM to finish up those books. Why doesn't anyone ever talk about how long he's taking? I feel like he should be writing faster /s
