Bold, Italicized, and Underlined

Game of Thrones is over, for the time being. I've heard that many fans are mighty upset at what they perceive to be a lack of quality in the final season.

"Rushed", I've heard a few times.

"Cheesy" is what I thought after I watched an episode on CTV a couple of years ago. (That network experimented with broadcasting a season. Ratings were underwhelming, apparently. Makes sense: the fans had already watched that year on HBO. And downloaded.)

To me, the one I saw looked like it might have been something made by a theatre company that had grabbed a camera and visited an old ruin.

In all fairness, watching one episode, and out of context, is hardly any way to judge an entire series (which I will not bother watching from beginning to end).

There's quite the GofT fan petition going around. It calls for a remount of the show's entire last season.

It's just a TV show. (Bold, italicized, and underlined.)
