I've noticed a million people (and counting) want a remake of Game of Thrones Season 8 and replace writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss "with competent writers."
I'm of two minds on this. For one thing, it seems so ridiculous. Fandom clearly has gotten out of hand. And considering the bloodiness of Game of Thrones, one would wonder if lynch mobs are ready to go after those two.
Besides, the cost to remake that would be astronomical, and there's the matter if the actors would be willing to return for their roles.
On the other hand, I agree that GoT needs some improvements. For one thing, my idea of competent writers would be writers who would at least tone down the show to at least TV-PG or TV-14 to appeal to wider audiences. For another, hire more writers for the show (only two writers were behind this whole thing? Most shows have a lot more than that). That can prove essential, given a Screenrant article mentions that there Season 8 would easily stretch into two more seasons.
Plus, it may be possible to undo what happened in Season Eight and follow the books and do all that in Season Nine. Perhaps if there first was a druid who was sought out and went back in time (I read druids can sometimes do stuff like that) and ensured, maybe even entranced, Dany the Mother of Dragons to not become the Mad Queen, and ensure Jaimie killed Cersei, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. And stretch it into three more seasons, working with Martin's books.
Seriously. A magical form of time travel. To undo what happened in Season 8. It's not only cheaper, I'm surprised Martin didn't event think of that.
Hope you can bear that in mind, HBO.

And, well, a remake's pricey, but renewing the show for some more seasons and doing magic time travel to undo what happened in Season Eight, well, it's cheaper. And easier.
