Re-watching S6 in preparation, lots of the straight-up dialogue scenes are just awful. People tell each other what they just did. Tyrion's parts in particular are a pale shadow of his former wit. The action is superb, the production design is perfect and the big story beats are great, but the actual drama is terrible now that they don't have GRRM's words to crib off.
Still 100% hyped of course.
