Warning: spoilers for “Game of Thrones” below.
“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (the series’ creators) have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on,” wrote Dylan D., who launched the petition.
“This series deserves a final season that makes sense,” he added. “Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”
It’s almost inconceivable that HBO bosses would consider remaking the big-budget blockbuster TV series, and many folks on Twitter are expressing annoyance with the petition’s popularity.
Signing a petition to demand HBO remake Season 8 of “Game of Thrones” is not only juvenile and embarrassing, it will be about as effective as signing a petition to add five more days to June “cuz then summer will be longer!”

Everything you need to know about Season 8 of #GameofThrones is summed up by the server crashing because people were signing up so fast for a petition to remake the season and leaving comments by the thousands on how much they hate Benioff and Weis.

just spent the last 20 minutes scrolling through Twitter, and am now depressed that a fan petition to “redo” the Game of Thrones ending seems to be getting far more attention than the news from Alabama…

I know, let’s make a petition for a remake of game of thrones season 8, and not a petition for the horrid choices being made in Alabama and Georgia. Sounds like a reasonable thing to be focused on as a group of folks. 🙄 #Priorities

A “fan edit” of the 8th season of #GameofThrones would fix many issues instead of all these HBO petitions.
1. Move Rhaegal vs boats to Ep 5
2. Spread the Battle for Winterfell across ep 1-3
3. Speed Jon’s name storyline all into Ep 5
4. Ten 50-min eps
5. Dub some exposition

Forget Game of Thrones, we need a petition to reboot the last two years of America. Get some new writers in here. This shit is fucked and the plot makes zero sense.
