'Game of Thrones' Leaves Fans Torn


Over 19 million U.S. viewers watched the series finale of “Game of Thrones”, a record audience for HBO. The finale was the most-watched ever on HBO, surpassing the previous record set by “The Sopranos” in 2002. The finale proved as divisive as Season 8 itself, with the hard-fought Iron Throne melted down. Reuters reports the saga ended in what some called an anti-climax. USA Today’s Kelly Lawler called the finale “a disaster ending that fans didn’t deserve, hacky and cliche.” Over 1.2 million fans worldwide had signed a Change.org petition, criticizing Season 8 and calling for a remake. Television series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were silent on Monday.
