对剧情不满 权游剧迷请愿重拍第八季 Game of Thrones fans start petition demanding HBO remake season 8

中国日报网 2019-05-20 09:06

《权力的游戏》第八季还剩最后一集,可是粉丝们已经坐不住了。在经历了第5集的断崖式“烂尾”剧情之后,该剧口碑迎来了滑铁卢。甚至有海外剧迷发起在线请愿活动,要求HBO重拍第八季。

 

Game of Thrones is almost finished for good, and some fans have been voicing their dissatisfaction with how the story is unfolding.

《权力的游戏》即将剧终,一些粉丝对最后一季的剧情表达了不满。

for good:永久地

 

 

Some are so unhappy, in fact, it seems they want to convince HBO to remake the entire season 8 by replacing Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss with new writers at the helm.

事实上,一些粉丝实在太不满意了,他们似乎想要说服HBO(美国家庭影院)更换主创戴维·贝尼奥夫和D·B·威斯,重聘编剧执笔,并重拍整个第八季。

at the helm:掌舵;掌权

 

A fan named Dylan D. started a Change.org petition asking HBO to redo the entire season. The petition, titled "Remake Game of Thrones season 8 with competent writers," has reached more than 1,092,000 signatures as of this writing.

一位名叫迪伦·D的粉丝在Change.org网站上发起了一个请愿,要求HBO重新制作整季。请愿活动名为“聘请能胜任的编剧,重拍权游第8季”,截至发稿时,已有超过109.2万人签名支持。

"David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on," Dylan D. posted. "This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!"

迪伦·D在帖子中写道:“戴维·贝尼奥夫和D·B·威斯已经证明,他们在没有原作支撑的情况下,是糟糕透顶的不合格编剧。权游系列需要一个讲得通的最终季。颠覆我的想象,让它实现吧,HBO!”

subvert [səb'vɜːt]:vt.颠覆;推翻

 

While the petition doesn't detail specific plot grievances, many fans were notably upset when Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke)  executed Lord Varys by Dragon's fire, then proceeded to storm King's Landing and kill men, women and children even after the bells of surrender sounded.

尽管请愿中没有提及对具体情节的抱怨,但“龙妈”丹妮莉丝·坦格利安(艾米莉亚·克拉克饰演)用烈焰处死瓦里斯勋爵,进而在投降的钟声敲响后,仍然屠杀整个君临城,男女老幼皆不放过,这样的剧情让粉丝们非常失望。

Many fans thought Daenerys' brutal actions seemed entirely out of character.

很多人认为,龙妈残忍的行为似乎完全与角色个性不符。

 

国内网友们也纷纷表达对剧情的不满:

 

But on the flip side, another fan, who goes by the name Wolfman Monsterman, started a different Change.org petition urging fans to stop signing petitions forcing TV shows and movies to "meet your demands."

但也有粉丝唱反调。另一位名为狼人·怪兽人的粉丝发起了另一个请愿,呼吁粉丝们不要给上述请愿签名,不要迫使电视剧和电影“满足自己的要求”。

on the flip side:另一方面,唱反调

 

"It's time to take a stand against those taking a stand against witnessing narratives unfold in ways we didn't expect and pledge to never sign a petition demanding those fat cats in Hollywood adhere to our stupid, stupid ideas," the petition states.

请愿中写道:“有些人不想看到故事情节偏离我们的期待,而发起请愿,现在是时候反对这种请愿了。不要为了要求好莱坞的大佬们附和我们非常愚蠢的想法而签字。”

fat cat:有钱有势的人

 

HBO did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

HBO方面没有立即作出评论。

Game of Thrones might have disgruntled fans this season, but that hasn't stopped them from tuning in every Sunday to see if their favorite character survives another day. Sunday's episode, The Bells, attracted 18.4 million viewers who watched on HBO, HBO Go and HBO Now, HBO announced Tuesday.

本季权游或许令粉丝们不满,但人们还是在每个周日准时打开电视,看看他们最喜欢的角色能不能活下来。HBO在本周二称,有1840万名观众通过HBO、以及HBO Go和HBO Now点播频道收看了上周日的《钟声》一集。

disgruntle [dɪs'ɡrʌntl]:vt.使……不高兴

 

This season's Battle of Winterfell episode, meanwhile, earned the honor of being the most tweeted episode in TV history.

本季的临冬城之战一集,也成为电视史上引发社交媒体讨论最多的一集。

Actor Pilou Asbæk, who plays Euron Greyjoy, believes that being in a popular series means dealing with a passionate fan base.

在剧中扮演攸伦·葛雷乔伊的演员皮鲁·埃斯贝克认为,出演一部热门剧集就意味着要应对众多热情的粉丝。

"The diversity of the fans and the passion they bring to the table is admirable, and you want to have all of it," Asbæk told The Wrap on May 13. "You cannot satisfy one billion people, it's not possible. But you want to have them commit to the show, even if they don't like it."

埃斯贝克在5月13日告诉好莱坞媒体The Wrap说:“粉丝的多样性和他们公开表露出的热情令人钦佩,这一切你都想拥有。你无法让10亿人满意,这不可能。但你仍然想让他们全身心地投入到这部剧集中来,即使他们不喜欢它。”

 

《权游8》惊现星巴克,龙妈喜提咖啡一杯!

《权力的游戏》第8季自开播便非议不断。在第4集的一个场景中,大家在临冬城庆祝大胜异鬼,其他所有人都在喝酒助兴,可是心细的网友却发现在龙妈眼前的桌子上却摆着个咖啡杯!

对此HBO致歉称:

The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea."

“剧中出现的拿铁咖啡确实不对,龙妈点的其实是草本茶。”

不过这一咖啡也让全世界的观众都炸开了锅,各路调侃层出不穷,有的网友就开玩笑说道,难道星巴克(Starbucks)起源于史塔克(Stark)家族。还有网友说:夜王如果没死,说不定还可以量产星冰乐。

 

随后“穿帮”再次上演——詹姆兰·尼斯特原本被砍掉的右手竟然神奇地“长”了出来。

也许这部殿堂级神剧在粉丝心中的地位是无可比拟的,所以才会对第8季这么恨铁不成钢吧。但无论如何,最后一集还是要看的!
