I was wrong.
I liked the first half of season 7 (until it became all White Walker boredom), but this season misses on every note. Spoilers:
I feel like they should have made last season all about finishing the white walkers, maybe ending with The Battle of Winterfell, and then made this season all about Cersei versus Dany. Certainly stretch out the Dany going mad stuff over more than 2 episodes, if you want to go down that route make it seem somewhat earned. Also then you can stretch out some of the character deaths and make them seem a bit more meaningful - Varys, in particular felt rushed, I don't feel like Tyrion would have sold him out like that, same with Cersei and Jaime where again their end felt a bit rushed. I love the Clegane stuff though. It was a really good episode, just needed a bit more build up to make decisions like Dany going mad not seem a bit hollow. They needed more episodes.
