I would describe the final Game of Thrones episode as disappointing, rather than a total disaster, mainly because I found the writing lazy, probably due to the rushed arc of the final season, crammed as it was into six shows. There were plenty of narrative gaps that left me shaking my head.
While, as I said, it wasn’t a disaster, it did feel lacking, enough that I felt a need afterwards to revisit the finale to another show to remind myself that there are folks out in TV Land who know how to get things right.
That’s just about perfect.
And it’s the lead in to this week’s Playpen topic: give us your list of great television finales.
See you in the comments.
