More than half a million fans are demanding a HBO remake of “Game of Thrones Season 8” with competent writers.
This petition is coming just days before the series finale.
A Game of Thrones fan created the petition on Change.org on May 9 but the petition didn’t pick up traction until it garnered media attention on May 15.
It argues that the writers of the show, David Benioff and DB Weiss, “have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent”.
Throughout the season, fans and critics have admonished Game of Thrones’ showrunners for everything from poor character development to bad pacing and rushed storylines, and production issues ranging from dark lighting to ‘wayward coffee cups’.
One viewer noted that “It’s the fact Season 8 was rushed with so few eps,”. Another said “Everything just felt so sudden and fast with no build up! It was just Bang Boom White Walkers defeated, Bang Boom suddenly Danny is the Mad Queen!”
