The reading

People who watch the television programme Game of Thrones are not happy. Over one million viewers have signed a petition to get the final, eighth season of the show remade. They are unsatisfied with the story. The petition is on the Change.org website. It says the series "deserves a final season that makes sense". The petition was started by a man called Dylan D. He said the writers of the final show lacked imagination. He said the first seven seasons were great because the storyline of Game of Thrones followed the books the show came from. The show's creators had to write the storyline for the final series themselves. Dylan D called the creators "woefully incompetent".
