    Well done. I agreed with every word. I wonder what Martin himself things of the abomination B&W made his work into? Probably, since he is struggling to push the colossus over the finish line, it was a world weary shrug but I’d like to imagine he was annoyed at least by what they made Sam into.Report

      I wonder if it all kind of sapped his joy. I mean, I’ve had projects (like this one LOL) that were not well received and it does suck the joy out of it.

      Just knowing that everyone hated hated hated the end of the show has to take some of the fun away!

      Thanks for reading!Report
