I don't know.Why did you feel the need to share this in a "I don't like this supposedly great thing" thread?
Yes, I'll admit something I didn't like about Game of Thrones was the way most episodes of a season were just setting up for the big payoff at the end. That kind of television can get frustrating, especially when you can't binge watch it. I like shows that have a mix of standalone stories with an overarching narrative. I think The Mandalorian does a pretty good job of this, although the overarching narrative is perhaps a bit too thin at times. The X-Files did a good job of it at first as well, though I think it had kind of lost its way by the end and sort of petered out with a disappointing ending.I didn't like GoT or Sherlock, but I wouldn't say it was so much the writing or acting so much as the themes. I also like more episodic content instead of feeling like I'm watching a movie that lasts for literal days.
Series I do like include Cobra Kai, Stranger Things, and The Mandalorian.
