Only when government bailout money runs dry, then and only then will they realize they need to make a profit/make things the PAYING customer WANT to pay for, and not catering to the demented twitter mob that virtue signals but won’t buy anything anyway.
I won’t be watching it. Knew it was going to be bad the moment I told my dad about it and he said “Amazon haven’t a hope in hell”. There are some similarities between LotR and GoT but SMALL. LotR is very heavily reliant on fantasy. GoT doesn’t. I’m amazed that Tolkien’s family have allowed this.

You do know the Asoiaf books actually do have a lot of fantasy in them. Dumb and Dumber left it out of the TV-show, why, no idea, but it really hurt the show imo. This is another point where I believe Amazon will fail. If they try the GOT recipe <seasons 1 through 4> and leave out most of the fantasy, well another reason it will fail.
Yes I’ve read the books (I always make it a point to read books first and then watch the film or tv series that I’m interested in watching if they’re based on them). I’m also aware that they didn’t have much fantasy in the tv series other than the dragons and giants.
Ya the more and more I keep looking at things related to the show, the more it looks like they are trying to use the GOT S1-4 Template and its going to fail. It needs its High Fantasy, It needs to be based off the books as far as Culture(s) and it just needs to remember to take us to a place we already know and dont try and change it…
When will they learn to stop trying to fix what worked.
Give it a few years. These corporations will get tired of losing money and come back to reality.
There most likely wouldn’t be a free society in a few years so it won’t be back to normal. The spread of Communism in the Western world is why we have a woke mob at all. If that’s not dealt with, having your favorite franchise filled with identity politics will be the least of your worries. Just look at China.
