It's time to put your fingers where your mouth is! More than 100 Shat on TV listeners wrote in their improved versions of "Game of Thrones," and we chose the weirdest, smartest, and most original rewrites for this bonus edition of Shat on TV. Your wild imaginations brought us everything from George R.R. Martin's cruel childhood to a Hulked-out Tyrion. And more serious topics ranged from Daenerys' possible bipolar disorder to brutal endings for nearly all our characters. What if we had more cliffhangers and a longer season? What if Bran delivered the future to us in the final episode? Or if Dany went full White Walker and Jon Snow still loved her? Plus, one listener wrote us a letter we couldn't help turning into a song with the help of singer Natalie Ribbons. It's our parting gift after two painfully short seasons of Game of Thrones together.  Let's keep the party going! Subscribe to our other podcasts at shatontv.com and shatthemovies.com.

"Game of Thrones" is over, but listener email keeps pouring in. And that's the recipe for a Bonus Small Council edition of Shat on TV. The King Bee is back to share his opinion on Season 8 and ask, "What's the worst thing you ever did to an ex?" Gene explains how "Game of Thrones" is like a decade-long Bob Ross painting, and listeners continue their fight over whether Bran is a fitting king or just a sneaky creep. Listener Ken L. shares his theories on where Drogon went with Daenerys' body, plus what happened to the Dothraki after she died. Meanwhile, listener Reeshee writes in about the demonization of minorities in "Game of Thrones." No matter your opinion, we all can agree on one thing expressed beautifully in a voicemail from listener Courtney K: Jon Snow is the worst boyfriend in Westeros.  Catch it all in this Bonus Small Council, and be sure to vote in our Second Annual Thronie Awards by clicking here.https://shatontv.com/vote-thronies Read All Small Council Emailshttps://shatontv.com/category/game-of-thrones-small-council/ Read Emails Read on the Podcasthttps://shatontv.com/tag/small-council-read/ Help Support the Podcast Support with Paypal - https://shatontv.com/paypal Support With Venmo – https://venmo.com/ShatPodcasts Shop Amazon With Our Affiliate Link - https://www.amazon.com/?tag=shatmovies-20 Sponsor's Listener Survey - http://shatthemovies.com/survey Leave an iTunes Review - https://shatontv.com/game-of-thrones-review Leave a Voicemail - (914) 719-SHAT - (914) 719-7428 Feeds & Social Media - https://shatontv.com/subscribe-and-follow/ Checkout our Movie Podcast - http://shatthemovies.com Theme Song - "Seven Nation Army (Epic Orchestral Cover)" - Ciaran Burch 
We asked you to withhold judgment until after the Game of Thrones finale. And now that our watch has ended, it's time for the gloves to come off. This Small Council listener mail edition gets down to the nasty business of assigning blame for a questionable season 8, casting shade on the show runners, George R. R. Martin, and even poor Gene Lyons. As fans dig into "The Iron Throne," messages pour in to question Bran's legitimacy as king, Jon's right to be alive, the Kingsmoot's entire function, and why HBO's most successful series is ending. Gene learns an important lesson about the C-word. No, not that one, and Big D guides us through a record number of voicemails. Have a listen, then join us Tuesday for a Bonus Small Council!

"Game of Thrones" is over, and we're having a hard time letting go. Our final On The Throne Deep Dive examines whether "The Iron Throne" helped or hurt this monumental series' legacy and why things ended the way they did. Gene and Big D discuss whether Bran was the right choice for King, whether justice was served, and what the heck the Dothraki do now that they're stranded in Westeros and don't get speaking roles. We couldn't bring you a "Game of Thrones" Season 9, but Gene argues the final episode of Season 8 had all the makings of its own season ... so he wrote it. And we reflect on each major characters farewell and how it fit his or her tale. Also, if you were confused about who the heck also those randos were at the Kingsmoot, we've got you covered.

Game of Thrones' series finale, "The Iron Throne," felt like two episodes wrapped in one. Maybe even two TV shows wrapped in one. There was the somber, sobering examination of absolute power corrupting absolutely, and there was the saccharine sweet series of farewells to our favorite characters that prevent a civil war. But in the end, we got some answers a decade in the making. Who would sit on the throne? Would there be a throne? What would Arya do when the killing was over? Could anyone defeat a queen with Unsullied, Dothraki, and a dragon at her disposal? Where the hell is Yara? And did Robin Arryn die? Have a quick listen to the Instacast, recorded immediately after the series finale punched in the gut while trying to tickle our funny bones. You're a weird one, Episode 6.

It's Daenerys Day on the Shat on TV Small Council. This week's "Game of Thrones" listeners rained down fiery emails and voicemails about the massacre at King's Landing and how it might all be Jon Snow's fault. Your messages were pretty evenly split on whether you loved or hated Season 8, Episode 5 "The Bells," and we snagged a strong sampling of each for this extended-length podcast. Dr. Ashley Schlafly of "The Dana Buckler Show" dives even deeper into Gene Lyons' character arc primer, and U.S. Air Force pilot Fatso explains Drogon's atomic romp through the Westerosi capital.  Other topics in this edition: Was Cersei death worthy of her character? Race in "A Game of Thrones" Sansa's reaction to her rape and torture Ser Davos' upbringing How much fire does a dragon have? Cleganebowl Arya's mystery horse Who will sit on the Iron Throne? Will history repeat itself, or is The Wheel actually broken?

"The Bells" should have been the triumphant climax for "Game of Thrones." It was the battle we all were waiting for. The good guys finally made it to King's Landing, and justice would be done. But "Game of Thrones" Season 8, Episode 5 gave fans something different: a look at the horrors of war, the power of legacy, and the unsatisfying end to some of our favorite characters. Sunday was the day many viewers said "enough," but a small contingent said, "Let's take a second look." And some even said, "We don't want justice. We want destruction." Join Gene Lyons and Dick Ebert as they debate whether Daenerys is truly a Mad Queen or simply a brutal conqueror who is perfectly sane. Examine which deaths were deserved and what happens now that the fires have turned to ash. Learn more about character arcs and why some of them feel less gratifying than others. And, of course, we've gotta talk about that Euron's and Jaime's Knife Party at The Cove.

Game of Thrones' penultimate episode, "The Bells," was either one of the coolest things you've ever seen or a sure sign that HBO has completely lost control of George R.R. Martin's incomparable realm.  Old scores were settled, true natures were revealed, and the entire CGI budget was spent. Gene Lyons loved it. Dick Ebert threw his hands up in frustration. And meme makers had a field day.

Season 8 Episode 4 gave us a standoff between Cersei and Daenerys, a farewell between Jon Snow and Ghost, a funeral for the fallen, and whispers between Tyrion and Varys. But listener mail mostly was about one thing: How the hell is the North so bad at stuff? We scoured more than 200 emails and voicemails after "The Last of The Starks," and we chose the best for this edition of the "Game of Thrones" Small Council. Hear other listeners' takes on the new Scorpion design, whether King's Landing will fall, Jaime's and Brienne's romance, female disempowerment, and who ultimately will sit on the Iron Throne. Other topics in this edition: Missandei's execution is the death of diplomacy Dany isn't mad. She's just angry. How does Euron always know where to be? Canadian wrath Gendry's path to the throne Vary's secret aspirations Tom from Chicago's SWOT analysis of the war to come and much, much more!

Jon didn't deserve to die any more than Jaime Lanister. Greyworm probably knew Jon did the right thing.

Rick Wagner I am not saying the writing was great or even good but there are many reasons that he shouldn't have harmed Jon. He would have gained nothing and probably lost everything if he did. He already lost his love and he like Jon was probably just done with all of the throne stuff and the people surrounding it.

herbsta magus please, imagine when grey worm comes into the throne room to find Jon covered in blood. Jon tells him he just murdered dani and drogon flew away with her body. grey worm is basically now in charge of kings landing and tyrion is locked up. it would be good duty to kill jon on the spot. grey written was just slitting the throats of surrendered soldiers. of coarse he'd kill jon. The writing in season 8 was just terrible

SMSimon No real fan of GoT can think season 8 was anything but a total disgrace. it was laughably terrible and I have always said it was the best show ever. after season 8 breaking bad is back on top.

J WIII Kinda easy for an opinion to change a little, once they've seen the whole season and can properly judge it in it's entirety. SMH

Dany should have made a deal with Jon to let him take the throne in name while he would let her actually rule the kingdoms. Two people that actually loved each other could have easily come to this solution. Dany's inability to truly love Jon (not neccesarily her fault) and share with him was Dany betraying Jon and herself more than anyone else betrayed her.

I've tried at least 4 different podcasts about GoT. This is THE one worth listening to if you have limited time. Also, with 3 episodes per GoT episode, there's plenty of great content.

I am so sad that I found this podcast only three weeks ago! but since then I've been recommending it to every one of my GOT buds. This podcast is amazingly well done, and definitely something you can be proud of. Thank you for all of the insights, perspectives, and creativity.

I don't think there will be another battle. It's going to be intrigue, poison, Arya, etc.

you guys are insufferable when you do this hindsight 20/20 Bs. "should have done this." "I would have done that". also you guys miss a lot of details for watching it multiple times.

The Dothraki charge was used to trigger the attack of the dead army. They had to do something drastic to begin the battle because the dead could have just waited for the living to get too tired or hungry to fight.

Deleting now. When a woman calls you out for ignoring women, defensive is a weak response. And two men speaking isn't enjoyable.

This review is a great review. There are some reviews that are good, but this one is simply great. Easily a 5 star review. Dare I say it is the best review ever? Yes I will. It is the best review ever! But, the Shat guys are just OK. YAYYYY!!!
