The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman

The Weekly Stuff #291 - The Game of Thrones Episode

Episode Summary

With Sean having finished Game of Thrones, we finally do a deep dive into the entire series, especially the very problematic final seasons.

Episode Notes

You’ve wanted it. You’ve asked for it. You’ve waited for it. And now, it’s here – the Game of Thrones episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcasts. Both hosts have seen the entire series, and now we’re here to digest the entire thing, and the unmitigated creative disaster that was the final two seasons in particular. What happened to the writing, what the heck was up with that ‘capture a wight beyond the wall’ plan, why is Euron Greyjoy the worst character in the history of television, and what happens when you do an anime-only fan service ending, but with 90-minute episodes and a seemingly bottomless budget? All this and more will be answered over the course of our very punchy conversation, and before that, we talk Super Mario Maker 2 and Outer Wilds, chat about the slump in the 2019 summer box office, and Jonathan relates the best joke he’s ever heard in a movie theatre.
