Before the final season of Game of Thrones ended, a group of dissatisfied fans made themselves known with a petition to “remake” the final episodes. And while that’s unlikely to gain any actual traction, perhaps this next thing will be different. According to the Moscow Times, a branch of the Communists of Russia Party have also started a campaign to get season 8 remade.
Sergei Matasov, first secretary of the party’s regional committee in Russia’s republic of Altai and we assume a massive Game of Thrones fan, commented via Facebook: “There are many sincere fans of this wonderful series in our party because it demonstrates the consequences that monarchist regimes can bring.”
Okay, so far, so Communist. Then Matasov makes it weird…er:
Disappointing millions of fans and presumably misappropriating the funds allocated to the show, which came from the taxes of ordinary American workers and downtrodden negroes.
We… demand an immediate apology from the creators of the finale of ‘Game of Thrones’ and a compulsory reshoot of the final season with new directors and screenwriters.
Naturally, Matasov suggested that the U.S. Communist Party be involved in the reshoots. We’re sure HBO will get right on that.
So, we are not political scholars, but it looks like the Communists of Russia Party is a pretty minor party in existence since 2012. The main Communist party in the country is the Communist Party of the Russian Federation. And if you’re wondering, neither of these parties are the ones that Russian President Vladimir Putin belongs to — that would be the All-Russia People’s Front, which actually isn’t so much a political party as an conglomeration of other parties that have all come together to support Putin.
Russian politics are complicated.
But the point is that the Communists want the final season of Game of Thrones remade. Maybe someone can unite the Russian and American Game of Thrones fans so they present a united front? I submit the time Rocky ended the Cold War in 90 seconds as a guide. Looks simple enough.
