Dear Those Who have Asked that I Watch GoT
If I did not have an argument before ~ and I did, given the painful smearing of the writer's fingerprints over ever bit of dialogue ~ the above is enough.
Some will say, "Well, shit happens." Those people have never been in a movie. There are dozens and dozens of people who are involved in the making of this shot, from the cameraman to the director to the editor, not to mention the actors, the continuity and the many, many techies who were lighting and propping this scene. And no one noticed. No one.
Or, it was intentional.
If no one noticed, it was because everyone involved in the making of this trash is clearly, plainly, going through the motions. They've all stopped caring. If they cared, this would have been caught and fixed long before it broadcasted ... but they didn't, because hell, who gives a shit. Let's just film this bit and get it done. Bleh.
And if it was intentional ... well.
Either way, no one on this crew, no one connected to this scene, should ever work again. Or, at least, they should experience a period of suffering, during which they endlessly have to re-evaluate their commitment to their art. Given the number of people watching, this was Merkle's Boner.
It is forgivable that someone goofed. That some "one." But dozens upon dozens goofed here, or phoned it in, and that's amateur night. That's high school.
No, I do not want to watch a show this tired.
