None of those were real. True story.
So why do people are calling Dany's killing of the fake people of King's Landing immoral? When she committed mass murder before? She has been a murderous despot for quite some time now. With audiences cheering.

The answer is simple. In real life, like in fiction, people are ok with killing people who aren't of their perceived "tribes". Now audiences are shocked that a mass murderer killed people of the "right tribe". Thing is, despots kill people of the "right tribe" more than people of the "naughty tribes". But clearly the lesson isn't learn. All disatisfaction is put on bad writting instead of people doing some soul searching and asking themselves if they do not favor immoral behavior and authoritarianism.

My only consolation is that I'll get to say "I told you so". If all goes wrong of course.

Hmm.

Because people are often wrong.

When she committed mass murder before?
She has never committed mass murder. She has pretended to on T.V., though.

The answer is simple. In real life, like in fiction, people are ok with killing people who aren't of their perceived "tribes".
The answer is simple, and it has nothing whatsover to do with real life. The answer is because T.V. is pretend and it's fun.

My only consolation is that I'll get to say "I told you so". If all goes wrong of course.
Dude. I don't know where you've been, but it has already gone wrong and it had nothing to do with cheering pretend killing.

You've never watched Games of Thrones it seems. It explains a lot.

So you''d be ok with people cheering the pretend rape of Sansa? That tells me a lot about who you are.

That is pretend doesn't matter. It is just moving the goal post. People are shocked by immoral behavior, when they cheered for the same immoral behavior a few seasons ago. It is a reflection of their moral values. MArtin tried to show that, but it is going over your head. No lesson is learn what so ever.

If you think you can tell anything about me based on how I look at pretend, you're deluding yourself.

If you really can't tell the difference between reality and pretend...

Dany losing it and destroying the red keep (Innocents and all) makes sense. Her turn to full on nutter was handled poorly.

All I'm saying is things would have played out a lot differently if StoneMountain64 was the officer in charge of the Golden Company

Apparently the two showrunners don't like the number "3", so we never got a third Targaryen mounting the third dragon. Fair enough, but why not having Jon Snow ride Rhaegal above KL trying to stop the fury of Daenerys? That would have been cool, also causing havoc in the city more as a collateral damage than unilateral assault.
Drogon kills Rhaegal, then, in last episode, Jon kills Daenerys as seen on TV?
or any other random ending...

Because they kind of forgot how to write...

Some blame also the budget not enough for two dragons
I do not buy that. They were offered tons of cash and loads more episodes by HBO.
They also keep spewing the line about how expensive it is to create/shoot Ghost and to have dogs behave a certain way.
Maybe they could have spoken to the guys who managed the dogs in John Wick Parabellum.

Given the rest of the show, I'd put it down to lazy writing.

Fur,hair and grass cost a lot to animate. They probably preferred spending the money on other effects.
They paid for Jaime and Cersei in the final episode when they could have just used the golden hand to signify they were dead within the rubble.

Although they did save on the makeup costs having the crushing debris not matter, and there was also only one layer of bricks so that was nice that Tyrion never had to dig very far.
