As soon as I saw this I knew I had to give it a shot as anything is better than the original and I wasn’t disappointed. Many characters are seemingly redeemed and seem to be more themselves which was more than refreshing. As a newer viewer I don’t know if I view as critically as others but if I don’t notice any flaws the edit is solid to me and I noticed zero. My only complaint is that they didn’t give enough to work with as the story is semi flawed and a little inconsistent. Overall I thought the edit was great and far beyond the original! Thank you!

almightycutie attempts to take Seasons 7 + 8 of GoT and turn it into one solid ending season by jettisoning all the material that didn't work. This means that much of S7 is left intact while much of S8 is cut, in particular all the bits that made previously clever and resourceful characters into plot devices. Tyrion is still smart, Sansa isn't so relentlessly bitchy, and Dany doesn't betray her core principles because she's not getting that Jon Snow D.
The key change is amazing in how well it works, so much so that it almost seems like it would be better if GRR Martin wrote it this way. AC flips the order of events to that Dany deals with her fight with Cersei first, then comes to aid the North in a final battle against the Night King. This reframing allows many characters who met certain fates to have different ones now that the Battle of Winterfell is the culmination of the story. AC does an impressive amount of additional effects-work to try to weave the structure of this together and to refocus the narrative in a believable way, and I think the majority of it works very well. I left in-depth comments on the edit's actual page: https://forums.fanedit.org/threads/game-of-thrones-complete-seasons-7-8-edit.19047/post-385712

Overall, there's nothing in this that screams "I Am a FaNEdit nOT thE ReAL thINg", so it's definitely a workable replacement for S7 and S8 of the actual show, if you're a fan. The narrative runs into some structural issues in the last few episodes though, and I think it needs a Version 2.0 to really give a satisfying ending to fans. Perhaps like the many Hobbit edits, this first GOT one will show the way and provide a platform to build off of and just get even better. It's an incredibly ambitious accomplishment, and I look forward to what AC does next!

There is some very impressive work in this edit, and the way the story plays out as one season works wonderfully. Technically, I saw no issues and this is a very strong work. If this had been the way the story had gone originally, I don't think there'd be as many complaints about it.

For me personally, the cracks start to show in the concept in the last few episodes. I love how the battle of King's Landing was handled, but there's a few moments that don't quite flow together right (Dany's costume change mid-flight stuck out to me right away.) Overall, that section is an improvement over the original show. There's some great effects work in the final Winterfell battle, and conceptually I like the idea of killing off some characters in that segment.

The moment in the throne room with Dany and Jon didn't quite work for me, though I like what the edit was trying to do with it. I just don't think the material was there to make that moment seem genuine.

Overall, this is definitely an improvement over the original version, and if some of those final moments could be made to work a little better, it might be the definitive version. For me, I don't know that there's a way to not make the end of this series disappointing given what we have to work with, but this is pretty close.

Great job, I enjoyed this a lot.

This edit is very impressive and holds a very high quality overall.
Some blurry frames in the darker scenes were apparent at least on my screen but nothing that distracted to much.
The pacing of the episodes is great and they always ends in the perfect moment.
The episodes differ in running time but that doesn't matter to much, as the pacing of them is great.
There was maybe one or two things I felt was strange storywise but I think I have to watch it again just to be clear.
Anyway this is way better than the original final seasons of the show and you have made a massive and impressive job with this edit almightcutie.
Well done!

Really interesting and very well put together, however the writing from D&D left almightycutie with an almost impossible task.
I certanly enjoyed it more than the original, and would watch this version over the original again, i was put off at first with the voice over from Bran, but it did tie the story together better and you do get used to it (sort of).
Overall you do notice a cut or two here and there but its really well edited and the story flows a lot better, i would defintely recommend to anyone this verson.
Really well done almightycutie!
