(CBS News) — Some fans haven’t hesitated to share their disappointment in the final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” the last few weeks. But now they’re taking it a step further — as of Friday morning, more than 800,000 people have signed an online petition to remake the entirety of season eight. 

In no particular order, here is an abridged list of plot points that fans have taken issue with this season:

Disaffected fans are so outraged that the petition calls for a remake of the whole season with “competent writers.”

“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,” the petition’s organizer, Dylan D., wrote. “This series deserves a final season that makes sense.”

The petition launched on Change.org soon after the most recent episode, “The Bells,” aired Sunday. By Wednesday, the petition had reached its target of 15,000 signatures, and the tally soon surpassed half a million.

Season eight of “Game of Thrones” is the most expensive season of television ever produced, so it is unlikely that fans will have their way. But there’s another important point made in the petition — Benioff and Weiss are set to direct the upcoming “Star Wars” film. “I don’t want these two anywhere near Star Wars, either,” the top comment on the petition reads. “This was abysmal.”
