A new Game of Thrones poll shows that the hate for the final season isn’t as widespread as most fans thought.
Many people had issues with the final batch of Game of Thrones episodes, whether it was who ended up on the throne, who lived and died as well as things like lighting and pacing. But a new poll shows that the hate for the final Game of Thrones season isn’t as widespread as many fans originally thought. It’s surprising news given that Twitter was alight with complaints before, during and well after the final Game of Thrones season was airing on HBO.
The Game of Thrones fansite Winter Is Coming broke down the news published by the market research company YouGov, discussing the surprising results. It showed that ahead of the Emmys, 52% of people surveyed were “Satisfied” or “Very Satisfied” with the way Game of Thrones left our screens. Although 41% said they were unhappy with the final season, 7% said they were completely neutral. When asked if they’d seen every episode of all the shows nominated for the Outstanding Drama Series Emmy, 18% answered that they’d watched every single Game of Thrones episode. This was also the highest percentage for any show. 18% of people polled also thought that Game of Thrones should win Outstanding Drama Series.
What are your thoughts on the Game of Thrones polls? Did you love the way it ended, or were you disappointed? Should Game of Thrones win Outstanding Drama Series at the Emmys? Let us know in the comments.
