Everybody knows about the hatred that has been the part of the Game of Thrones season 8. The series did its last part recently, and the fans didn’t quite like the ending. George R. R. Martin was silent about the whole thing. The hatred rose to the point where they signed a petition which almost crossed the 1.5 million signatures. The petition was for re-filming of season 8. There were no actions taken, nor are there any signs of movement in the cast and crew.

But an interesting thing came up as the author of the Game of Thrones series also known as A Song of Ice and Fire. He called the internet and the fans toxic, and he is right though. The idea is that there can always be denial for a concept to take place, but they should not be going mad or crazy like the technical zombies out there.

George R. R, Martin said,

“The Internet is toxic in a way that old fanzine culture and fandoms – comics fans, science fiction fans – in those days, was not.”

The 70-year-old writer told Leonard Maltin on a podcast,

“There were disagreements. There were feuds, but nothing like the madness that you see on the Internet.”

This is something real, and people should be a genuine spectator of the series. Criticism should be on point, but madness like a techie zombie is not working the present era.

Nevertheless, the fans out there should understand that creating a series or more prominently a season needs costing, production, and more importantly, direction. The cost itself is too high for something like this.

Anyways the idea is not for the costing and production; the idea behind is the faulty comments make things more prone to damages. Obviously, he didn’t open up about the ending in the book where he left things in passive. And it should be like that because who want spoilers and more importantly the readers like the way it is there in words.

We hope George R. R. Martin gets on with the book sequences as soon as possible. And we as readers get to see the ending the author created. Till then, we think people may get aware of the other things of series making. Most importantly we hope that the series finds a better criticism from now and makes its mark like a boss it is. A fun fact is that the HBO has got the most of its TRP from Game of Thrones, Chernobyl and The Wire.
