Game of Thrones Series Finale Review — The Iron Throne Is Gone, But the Game Goes On Forever

Spoilers follow for the series finale of Game of Thrones, ‘The Iron Throne’.

After 8 long seasons, featuring sometimes outstanding, breathtaking and sometimes mediocre television, the juggernaut known as Game of Thrones, the biggest show ever filmed in terms of scale and one of the best in terms of story, has drawn to a conclusion.

The titular game of thrones, the constant bickering to sit atop the Iron Throne by all the lords and ladies of Westeros, was symbolically drawn to a close by the destruction of the Iron Throne, but the actual game is never going to end so long as ultimate power, the end goal, resides in only one person.

Spoilers follow for those yet to watch Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4, ‘The Last of the Starks’.

For nine long years since Game of Thrones debuted in 2011, this grave threat to the realm posed by the White Walkers had been hanging over the entire show, affecting not only how we watch and interact with the show but how the characters themselves conduct themselves around each other.

‘Winter is Coming’ has not only been the unofficial motto of House Stark, but also of the whole show. We were led to the believe the greatest threat to mankind was the White Walkers marching south, leading all the armies of Westeros and Essos gathered by Jon and Daenerys to take them on in one final battle for the survival of the realm.

Spoilers follow for those yet to watch Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3, ‘The Battle of Winterfell’.

Nine long years in the making! Game of Thrones has always been about the mystery of court intrigue and the terrible things men (and women) are willing to do to satisfy their quest for power. It is what drives the show and has made it the biggest television show ever made and one of the best-written tv series of all time.

Yet since the very first episode of the very first season, we have known that a time would come when the mystery and intrigue would have to take a backseat for the great war, the battle for humanity’s very survival against the threat of the White Walkers.

Grown Man who Believes in Fairy Tales Thinks He’s Being Clever By Attacking Gays — The Case of Prince David Osei

blank

It is fashionable to attack homos*xuals in this country, that’s nothing new. Attacking gays happens everywhere in the world and even if you don’t like it people are never all going to agree on something and honest disagreement is normal in any intellectual society.

The problem is no real arguments are raised by opponents of homos*xuality in Ghana, aside raising religious objections. Different people have different religious beliefs, so thinking what your religion says about something is what everyone should believe is simply childish.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 Review — The Beginning of the End (of the World)

Spoilers follow for those yet to watch Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 — ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’.

For a global behemoth of a show which has left people waiting two years for its grand resolution, Game of Thrones sure is moving really slow towards its endgame. It’s hard being a fan waiting two years for a tv show and then having to wait just a little bit more for the clearly imminent end of the world.

Thrones only had six episodes to tell its remaining story this season. Yet after having watched the first two episodes of season 8, you would be forgiven for thinking they have the same ten episodes every single past season bar 7 had. Of course, episodes are going to be far longer this season (particularly from episode 3, most spanning well over an hour), but that has not stopped the season’s first two episodes feeling a bit like that of a normal ten episode season and not that of a truncated, six episode final season.

Godwin Nii-Armah Okine Writes: Homophobic Ghanaians Believe Only Anal S£x Is Disgusting But It's S£x In General That Is

blank

There are very few original arguments erected by Ghanaians when it comes to arguing against granting equal rights to gays.
There is the even animals don’t do it argument, which is factually incorrect, there’s the religious argument against it, which is moot in a country like Ghana which is supposed to be secular, and then there’s the it is against our culture argument, which is outdated because culture is not static but dynamic, and there are many ‘cultural’ practices we have thrown away because we’ve moved into the 21st century.

Theresa May and Nana Akufo-Addo

There are many arguments Ghanaians love to make when certain ‘contentious’ issue comes up, like homos*xuality or evolution, arguments which knowledgeable people know are wrong but because Ghanaians are Ghanaians, we still haven’t discovered they are wrong or even if we have, we completely disregard them.
One great example is the argument that even animals do not practice homos*xuality, so why should us as humans practice it? That argument is factually, practically, empirically, scientifically and any other way you look at it wrong, but people state it down here all the time as if they’ve discovered quite a profound argument.

But being the future leaders of a nation, which is simply a matter of time, is not the same as being the FUTURE of that nation.
