Time to go to DirecTV.
Is this a joke? The Game of Thrones ending is the most epically bad ending we've ever seen. Books are being written about the failure of Game of Thrones. The guys behind the show admitted they didn't have a clue what to do and were surprised they were being paid. There were 5 spinoffs planned prior to season 8... 4 are dead... the fifth probably won't see the light of day either because of the hot mess the 8th season became.The ending was fine
The week wait is certainly better for anticipation, fan theories and water cooler chat as you describe, but personally I'd rather get new shows one season at a time.No series that drops all episodes at once will ever be as popular/epic as Game of Thrones... The week between episodes is important for anticipation and fan theories and water cooler chat and the like. The Netflix model is flawed for new content. Great for old content.
