    This makes sense to me - at least the part about GRRM getting in a little over his head on the story.

    I haven't read the books, so I don't know exactly what parts of the show do and don't exist in his books. I've heard the books end somewhere around season 5 or so.

    It was a little before that where I started to feel like the show was slipping a bit (to be fair, that meant going from great to good/very good). My biggest gripe was that there were so many story-lines that were so complex and nuanced, that it started to get hard to follow. More accurately, it was hard to care that deeply about that many things at once (the Bran story is where I chose to abandon all smurf giving). It didn't ever feel, to me, like the show struggled to be able to carry any individual story-line, I just grew tired of having attention diverted from the ones that I really found interesting.

    Again, the show never stopped being at least "good".

    It did make re-watching the early X-Men movies a little uncomfortable though...

    You mean New Star Wars bilogy.

    Disney’s happy until they realize all trilogies get told in two movies, story arcs are chopped, and instead of hyperspeeding through the Kestle Run, the Star Wars universe suddenly invents teleportation...

    There’s LotR, and then the very forgettable Hobbit prequel-trilogy.
