"Sundays shall henceforth be known as "The Long Night," at least for the last episodes of the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones. HBO has officially confirmed the estimated runtimes of the brief 6-episode season, which were previously reported by Winter Is Coming as being between 60 and 80 minutes. That didn't seem like nearly enough time to wrap up this epic tale and get into all of the character nuance required. I mean sure, 6+ hours of spectacle sounded fun but … we need more!

I'm still surprised by the short episode length for the premiere, running at a cool 54 minutes, since the series' premieres are usually when the show checks in with every living character. I wouldn't mind seeing a change to that format, though, as it also leaves almost no time for actual meaningful dialogue, and is more of a reorientation to where everyone literally is on the map…."
