"Game of Thrones" fans waited long enough for Season 8 and now that it's here, a lot of them are underwhelmed. Somebody was angry enough to start a petition, asking HBO to redo the whole season with, quote, "competent writers." The petition goes on to say, quote, "David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on. "The series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!" The petition originally called for 150,000 signatures, but they've already surpassed 200,000 and now they have their sights set on 300,000.
