I stuck with it as long as I could.
Even after whatever the fuck last season was, I stuck around for the first episode of the sixth season of Game of Thrones.
I was even planning on keeping HBO even if I stopped watching Game of Thrones completely. After all, John Oliver.
After seeing the Dornish story line in the first episode, I’ve decided I can not give HBO another cent of my money.
I have no illusion that my cancellation means a damn thing. I’m not that self-important. The customer service rep at Direct TV joked with me when I canceled that I must not watch Game of Thrones. She was a bit taken aback upon finding out that I am a huge ASOIAF nerd and Game of Thrones was the only reason I had HBO in the first place. I am just one against the flood of people coming back to HBO with the start of the new season. I gave her the 30 second run down on why I was done with the show, which got the amusing reply of “well I guess a five dollar discount isn’t going to keep you then, is it.”
Come on people, they pissed in your glass and you keep praising the vintage. The AV Club gave that train wreck a B fucking plus.
I would pay so much for five off the record minutes with George R. R. Martin, a writer who is notoriously hostile to fan fiction, to hear his uncensored thoughts on what D&D have done to his characters.
That’s it. Not turning this into a 1000 word rant. I’ve said what I logged on to say.
