What are your thoughts on the new writers they hired on for Volume 7 and beyond? Do you think they helped the writing or did M&K miss the mark badly with who they added on? I know a lot of people were not too pleased about Kiersi's addition to the writing room given her own writing being questionable at best, and Eddy's been writing with RT for a while.
I didn’t like a lot of the episodes Eddy and Kiersei tag-teamed on but I’ll let it slide on them having growing pains.
I think Eddy got dealt a bad hand on his first season, he seemed to take the Clover controversy harder than he should have and tried to explain it only to be met with a lot of furour. He seems to be a good person per his Twitter so I’m not gonna say he was a bad call.
Kiersei… exists? She made an IronQrow tweet after episode 2 and that is literally all I can tell you.
Could M&K have picked better writers? Probably, but I don’t think they did a terrible job and most of the problems with the Eddy and Kiersei helmed episodes were more Volume 7 structural problems than actual problems with their writing (except the circumstances surrounding Episode 12 and the airship scene, that was… pretty bad). We’ll see how they do in Volume 8.
