I may just wait until September in order to binge watch this straight through. Can't stand waiting in between episodes, lol.

Is a season 8 planned?

Yeah, the last two seasons - 7 and 8 - are essentially going to be half as long as the previous ones. The show should be wrapping up with S8, though.

Season 8 will be the final one. I haven't watched the last couple seasons yet since they've gone beyond where the books left off.

They are in very different places now (the books and the show.) I would say watch the show as there is no way (IMO) they will spoil anything from the books.

Probably, but I find it very hard to believe that George won't "borrow" heavily from the TV series in order to complete the book(s) he's still working on.

Any differences that would exist between the endings of the TV series and novels would be changes made by GRRM after the fact. The producers of the show already know his plans for how the series is going to end; the details may be different, but the outcome is likely going to be pretty close to his original vision.

There's speculation that GRRM is ultimately going to change aspects of the final books to differentiate from the TV series, which could possibly explain some of the delays,

Ditto. The last few seasons have been pretty weak in comparison to the first 3, so it won't hurt me any to wait a few months and then binge.

Huge fan of the books and I'm watching the shows as they drop. Even if the shows "spoil" who dies, who lives, who marry/fuck/kills who, I don't care, because the gasp of the realization isn't what makes the books great.
There's no way the show can capture what makes the books incredible and knowing the bones of the story will most likely only make me read even slower and pay even more attention to the nuances that are pushed aside in order to cram the story into a little glowing window.

Anyone else think of this when they saw this poster or am I just too old?

Still haven't watched this show. Just not into swords and sorcery. Wish it was westworld coming back instead.

I think what explains the delays is his constant vacations, his traveling to every minor Science Fiction and Book Convention in the world and him starting up his own movie studio in Mexico.

GRRM seems to be doing everything in the world except sitting down and writing the books. From an outsiders viewpoint, he really seems like he is tired of writing and wants to do other stuff -- he wants to develop movies and TV shows.

Nothing wrong with that, but to keep promising his fans every year that he will finish a book and then to go off and do other stuff all year is silly. I would just be honest and say you are tired of writing the books and you get it when you get it instead of making excuses every year while you vacation in Paris and the Caribbean or spend months at a time building a movie studio in Mexico.

You have too many kids. You really cant in good faith watch TV, let alone binge watch anything.
