“This is not how television works … TV shows are not fan service,” Reinhart wrote on Instagram. “It’s ridiculous of people to think they can demand creative change from artists.”
But viewers fired back at Reinhart’s comment.
“TV is fan service,” one person wrote in response. “The only way a show is successful is by the fans, by the people who watch the show.”
Others commented on Reinhart’s own show, Riverdale, by stating that it was the epitome of “fan service.”
“Riverdale has so much fan service!” another wrote. “Like characters using names that fans gave them… bughead, choni… that’s fan service.”
I've loved this last season of GoT, including Dani going bugshit all over King's Landing. There's been a lot of negativity about the windup, but I think it's just because people don't want ANY ending. But you know what they say: All good things...— Stephen King (@StephenKing) May 16, 2019
After episode 4, “The Last of the Starks,” aired on HBO, a viewer created a petition to have the whole season remade calling the showrunners “incompetent writers” due to not having the books to “fall back on.” The last two books in the series haven’t been written yet.
The petition has been signed by nearly 1 million people.
“I don’t think people can reasonably expect HBO to completely remake the season or any part of this particular series … I think most signers understand that,” the petition’s creator, Dylan D., wrote before quoting Heath Ledger’s character, the Joker. “’It’s not about the money, it’s about sending a message.’”
The season and the last two episodes, in particular, have been met with distaste from fans and critics alike. From the showrunners killing off one of the series’ only Black characters to turning Daenerys Targaryen into a mad queen and then offing one of the world’s most complex villains with a pile of bricks, viewers are unhappy.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the final season pales in comparison to its former seasons with a 71%. The last two episodes stand at a 57% and 41%, respectively–the lowest of any Game of Thrones episode ever.
