GoT’s rewatchability suffered immeasurably from the final season. Similar to BattleStar Galactica it rushed and forced plot “answers” and character interactions that probably would have been better served not existing.

For example the final Cylon reveal was so offensive the actors hated it. Which is depressingly familiar to GoT nonsense like when Aryia got a sex scene she thought it was a joke.

The rush to provide answers and closure, was at odds with a more natural character progression which is far more believable when strung out.

The sudden reveals if lineage was similar to BSG, Jon is Targaryen, so and so is revealed to be a Cylon. The more that happened in BSG the less impact it had.

Bringing everyone together for meet and greets in GoT was forced nonsense and stripped the show of its previous power of side story / adventure driving character building.

Jaimie and Lady B is the perfect example. Their road trip was legendary and emotional while their coming together was a disaster like Moonlighting TV series, instantaneously evaporating tension and meaning, the relationship was twisted into bad-boy meets and sexes up good girl, and breaks her heart

Jaimie = Starbuck
