Eh I don't mind the level of exposure, it's I find the characters themselves to be insufferable tropes. The rest is all good though I'll give you that.

It's still an impressive achievement and nothing even comes close in television but the latter parts of the story should have been told in a slower manner.

Exactly and perfectly so. Finaleitis has reduced the quality, but GoT is still the bestest show on TV.


Nah, that'd be:

Barry.
Legion.
Westworld.
Mr. Robot.
Better Call Saul.

And if you meant of all time then I can only assume you've never seen:

Breaking Bad.
Mad Men.
The Sopranos.
The Wire.

The leak I read came from the guy who leaked the last episode accurately. That is mainly why I am believing it.

It's a successful, convincing fantasy show that kept on going for 8 years without losing popularity, followed the books extremely well created countless memorable moments. It's a very hard achievement.

What the fuck are you talking about? GoT is okay but it is really nothing special or "century defining." That is one of the largest and quite frankly most nonsensical exaggeration I have ever heard.
