Seth Rogen Explains Everything That Was Wrong With The 'Game Of Thrones' Finale At His Comic-Con Panel (VIDEO)
If you think you were the most upset about the "Game of Thrones" finale, you're probably wrong. Fans have been buzzing about the underwhelming series finale for months now, and San Diego Comic-Con brought all of those disappointed fans together. With the "Game of Thrones" executive producers declining their appearance at the convention this year, even celebrities got in on the shade. Seth Rogen's "Game of Thrones" opinion was talked about at his Comic-Con panel.
Seth Rogen was invited to Comic-Con for his role as executive producer and director for the show "Preacher". Although he referenced the show subtly in the beginning, things escalated as the panel went on. Rogen ended up basically telling the audience everything that was wrong with the "Game of Thrones" finale and the Comic-Con goers agreed!
The first time "Game of Thrones" was mentioned was when the moderator asked Rogen if he believed "Preacher" would have a better finale then "Game of Thrones". Rogen replied with, "I’m here, at least, so I think that’s a good sign. I’m willing to show my face," throwing a jab at the showrunners who didn't show up to their panel.
When discussing the storyline of the last season of "Preacher" he also commented on the unsatisfying "Game of Thrones" ending, "having a show where nearly every episode was propelling the story forward and moving towards a final conclusion […] in a plotted-out way that was hopefully fast-paced and satisfying. You know, like the end of a TV show."
Not only did he continue to shade the HBO hit show throughout the moderator's questions, but when it was time for the audience Q&A he specifically requested "Game of Thrones" questions.
Fans were happy to engage and asked him how he truly felt about the ending. Rogen said that he imagines, "they regret making Bran the king. Because ultimately he doesn’t have the best story."
He also commented on the ending of Jamie Lannister's character saying that he believes Jamie should have killed Cersei instead of having fans follow a storyline for six years, which ended with the characters having a building collapse on top of them. It sounds like Rogen has a lot of beef with the writing of the last season.
The "Game of Thrones" panel also had their fair share of problems that included a lot of booing, and a lot of questions for the actors that did show up. We aren't surprised the actors would defend the show's finale. Not after Sophie Turner called out fans when the finale first aired. You can watch that panel here.
Seth Rogen's final season of Preacher airs on August 4 on AMC!
