Yeah...that is evil...and they said it themselves on the show...so "SHAME!....SHAME!....SHAME!" on them. :)

What's more evil is that Season 7 is just 7 Episodes not 10....but I expected that when there was an interview with the Producers a few months ago who said that the entire Series was planned to be about 74 episodes in total.

So, since we just finished 60 episodes...14 Episdodes were left. They were not gonna do Season 7 as 10 Episodes...and then do a 4 Episode Season 8. I thought they would make Season 7 all 14 remaining Episodes.

But it seems they want to milk it for another 2 Seasons splitting the 14 Episodes over Season 7 and Season 8. Then also, Martin, the creator is about to release another Novel...and they would take that and make another 9th and 10th Season out of it...and then end the series altogether. It's all about money in the end.
The creators have said in the past that they cannot logistically make more than 10 episodes in time for a standard April premiere, let alone 14. Something like the Battle of the Bastards took almost a month to film and that was only half an episode and does not include the pre-production and post-production..

Well...guess what? I was right based on the number of 14 total remaining episodes being only that way leaving just one other season after Season 7.

It was just announced that Season 8 will be the last Season of Game Of Thrones....meaning that there were only 14 episodes left as predicted. 7 for Season 7 and 7 for Season 8...so they basically just split the remaining 14 episodes (from the 74 episodes that were originally planned when they started making this series) over the two remaining 2 Seasons.

Spoiler alert: This post contains spoilers from Season 6 of “Game of Thrones.” Proceed at your own risk. But honestly, if you haven’t watched it yet, what are you waiting for?





Ramsay Bolton’s death intended it to be even more gory.
http://variety.com/2016/tv/news/game-of ... 201859737/

“They shot the scene with multiple takes,” explained Image Engine visual effects supervisor Mat Krentz. “They did a pass of the dog on green screen, then Ramsay on green screen, and then we also had a background plate, which we put together.” Artists also created a CG jaw for Bolton, and animated it to reveal the flesh ripping between Ramsay’s skin and gums. The effect was too gruesome even by “Thrones” standards, so they pulled it back a bit, using a 2D composite instead.

Image Engine’s creative team was also behind the season’s 72 on-screen deaths — spread over 10 episodes. This is how the death count broke down: 22 by sword, 14 by slit throat, 1 by pike, and 1 by dogs (Bolton’s aforementioned death following his loss at the Battle of the Bastards).

I hope they release the uncensored episode when the DVD/BD comes out.

The show just won another 12 Emmys and is now the most awarded scripted show in Emmy history with 38, beating previous record holder Frasier with 37. Congrats!

Lena Headey was robbed though.

How did she get robbed?? She's not a real character actress and the role is pretty much plain vanilla. The real surprise is why Jon Voight cant get a win for Ray Donovan. Nominated every year for best supporting actor. Fantastic actor and rangey role. Emmys are a political scam.
If the glove don't fit you must acquit! #WINNING
