Yes - not able to edit the title unfortunately.

I'm not sure that the reboot is going to be all that more successful. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. It seems like they should let different creatives take a crack at this 'franchise'.

Ridiculous argument.

The difference in reception is NOT because of IP strength but the quality of the adaptation. As someone who read ASOIAF long before the HBO show, it was virtually unknown to the general audience prior to HBO GoT whereas the widespread popularity of Tolkien's legendarium spans decades.

Put it this way - a shitty LOTR show was able to keep fairly close streaming viewership figures to a critically and popularly well received GoT show. If that's not IP strength, what is?
