Washington, .- More than 350,000 followers of the series “Game of Thrones”, furious with the direction the script has taken in the eighth and final season, have signed a petition for HBO to redo the entire final phase of this betrayal drama and battles.
The campaign started on the GoT Reddit website and has been accelerated with negative comments towards those responsible for the production of the series, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, when an amateur wrote “Bad Writers”, and invited others to “bomb” the duo on Google.
A “bombing” occurs on the Internet when one or more individuals become in some way the protagonists of the greatest number of searches, and in this case was with the words “bad writers”.
As explained by Yahoo! such campaigns disrupt Google algorithms by making the search engine connect an image, usually disconnected, with a certain phrase.
The petition on the website “change.org” claims “a new production of the eighth season with competent writers” and started after the episode last Monday entitled “The Bells”.
The audience did not like the behavior of Daeneyrs Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke, and Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster Waldau), and in his critique of the episode the British newspaper Daily Telegraph said that “the series was ruined and without arrangement”.
Benioff and Weiss, according to the angry spectators, “have shown that they are totally incompetent writers when they do not have backup material (that is, the books of the novelist George R. R. Martin) to which they can resort”.
“This series deserves a final season that makes sense,” he added.
The followers of the series have complained for weeks about the overturning of the story and all kinds of details in the production, including the appearance of a cardboard coffee cup in a scene.
During its eight years of existence, Game of Thrones has been characterized by violent deaths and in many cases as a result of betrayal, and in this final season there are those in the audience who complain about what Variety magazine described as “character deaths”. not very well thought out “.
There have been complaints about the quality of lighting in the scenes and the interactions of the characters that seem forced, but it is unlikely that HBO will be moved by the wrath of the viewers considering that the audience is still massive.
The episode “The Bell” was watched by 12.5 million people in the United States in the initial broadcast, the largest audience in the history of the series, and by 18.4 million users of HBO platforms.
The final episode will be broadcast next Sunday. (EFEUSA)
