Game of Thrones Cinematographer says you're the problem for the episode being so dark

Apparently it's your fault that you could hardly see anything on this week's ep of Game Of Thrones...

'Battle of Winterfell' has been crowned the most tweeted about episode on TV history for a number or reason.

Some couldn't stop raving about the episode, other's shared what they didn't like, but the majority of viewers took to twitter to say "WHY TF WAS IT SO DARK".

But according to Fabian Wagner, the cinematographer for the episode, it's not that the episode was super dark, it just you not watching it correctly.

Wagner said the show is 'cinematic' and should be thought of as a '73-hour movie' rather than just a TV show which means it's going to have cinematic lighting.

“A lot of the problem is that a lot of people don’t know how to tune their TVs properly,” he told Wired UK.

“A lot of people also unfortunately watch it on small iPads, which in no way can do justice to a show like that anyway.”

Wagner continued that the dark setting was used to separate this week's battle with the Night King from the many other epic battles the show's had over the previous seven seasons.

If you're sitting there thinking 'that's cool and all, but sorry, you're wrong...' Fabian has a final message for you. 

“I know it wasn’t too dark because I shot it,” he told TMZ.
