During this last week I’ve had discussions with siblings, friends and work colleagues regarding the finale of Game of Thrones and how utterly disappointed each and everyone of them were with the ending. Now before I continue, I’ll admit I haven’t watched the final episode however I do know the conclusion. To be honest I haven’t watched the last 3 or 4 seasons as I’m not as fanatical as others. One day I’ll get around to watching the entire series. However, my discussions with each of those fans reminds me how Dallas (Lorimar) ended with Conundrum and I’m left questioning why the producers and writing teams have such difficulty in creating a satisfactory conclusion to a series. Dallas and Game of Thrones both share something in common. From small beginnings both became behemoths in the television landscape. Both series followed the story of feuding families. Both followed the script of power, sex, revenge and death. Both dared to kill off popular characters namely Bobby in Dallas and Jon Snow in Game of Thrones; only to be resurrected. One series sidelined many viewers, the other was received with rapturous applause from around the world. But I’m questioning how is it two of the biggest TV Series in my lifetime can screw up their respective finales? While many here on Soapchat (myself included) argue Lorimar Dallas limped to its inevitable end I’m left wondering how the producers and writing team of Game of Thrones with advanced notice could not end the series in a blaze of glory. I mean this is Game of Thrones, not Friends. I understand some will argue the producers and writing team will not make everyone happy with their respective conclusions but should we have expected something different with Dallas and Game of Thrones?
