Exactly a month ago, I had written a post about being anti – Game of Thrones despite my husband’s numerous attempts to get me to watch it. (Read Here if you missed that post). I promised if ‘Team Husband’ got more votes then I would watch the show. The inevitable happened .. I am now done watching all 6 seasons of Game of Thrones. It only seemed fair to write a post about the ‘transition’.
Let the show begin ….
Episode 1: ok, at least the show has nice wolves and horses. *eyes closing*
Episode 4: why couldn’t they just invent mobile phones in their era to save me the trouble of watching this …. *eyes rolling*
Episode 9: OHHH EMMM GEEE!!! We have to watch the next episode right now …. *eyes popping*
And so the addiction began ….
I never thought I’d say this, but it is the best tv series I have seen. Sure, it has too much violence for my liking, but then the story is powerful and keeps you going. To say the show was full of twists would be an understatement. Everytime there was a shocking twist, I’d turn to look at my husband with a dropped jaw and he’d have a smirk on his face and say ‘Keep watching .. there’s more‘. I’d message my friend after each episode in shock and she’d reply ‘Keep watching .. there’s more!‘ That’s all that I kept hearing and omg were they right. I am so glad I started watching the show now as opposed to before, otherwise the Season 5 finale would have been the end of me. My heart goes out to all of you who waited a year to find out what happened next in Season 6.
There is so much I want to say about the show, but I find myself being very careful with this post as I do not want to give away any spoilers. Hear me out those of you who have given the show a miss saying it is not your cup of tea. I avoided it for the same reason, but could not have been more wrong. The story is so unpredictable it will take you by complete surprise. You will itch to watch the next episode …. and until you do, ‘You know nothing‘ (my favourite line from the show).
My best advice: Watch the show with someone who has already seen it and is a huge fan. I did the same, and it doubled the fun. Plus, it helped to have someone to warn me to ‘look away’ at the right time ….
My sincere advice: Do not have any favourite characters in the show to avoid disappointment …
And if you still need convincing then just take a look at that face and those curls! *You made it worth it Jon Snow*
Think it’ll be a while now before I can start watching another tv series again. Let the countdown to Season 7 begin!
Until the next post, Let’s keep it Strictly Lighthearted!
