Okay ... I know this is late, since Game of Thrones has been on for 7 seasons. Wife, especially, didn't care to watch it.  I was ambivalent, being more into sci-fi than fantasy.

I also know there's a huge following, and I'm not saying anything new.

But I have to say it ... WOW !!!

Wife and I started watching season 1 Sunday afternoon.  We watched 4 episodes before I had to start preparing for work.  She asked me to stay home Monday, so we could continue watching episodes.  I couldn't.  We watched another 4 episode last night after I got home from work.  Each episode is better than the last and we are solidly hooked.

If you're a fan, we understand, now.  If you've been putting off watching it, don't.  It is WELL WORTH all the acclaim it's getting and all the awards it's won.

 

Anyone else, here, a fan ???

Embarrassed to report, we did the same about two years ago. Still haven't recovered.

My daughter tried to get me. She has all episodes recorded. I watched a little but when the dragon was killed then turned into a zombie I lost all interest! Strange but you can turn on TV with gobs of channels satellite and there's a vampire or zombie movie on at anytime! What's the world coming to. Kids watch this crap so much! Sad, wonder how many believe they are real?

Okay ... please, no more spoilers.  In our universe, the dragons were just hatched.

I have never seen it but just picked up the complete first season DVD set recently. Hope to be able to start watching it in the next week or so.

Go ahead and block out a full day ... you'll likely want to watch all 10 episodes.

I don't doubt it, I usually am that way when I start watching a series. I had actually never seen Sons of Anarchy till just this past August, then I ended up watching all 7 seasons of it in less than 2 weeks lol

laugh.png Yep!  In the military, "Dragon Lady" didn't mean "cute".  But in this case, I agree.

 

On the other hand, Wife and I are up to episode 5 of season 2 ... and it just keeps getting better.

I gotta get my season 1 in very soon. I was going to last week but I got hooked on a Netflix show called Scam City and been watching that while working for the past five days.

Watched a couple and didn't see the appeal. I haven't really found many 'new' shows all that good and when anything comes out and you already know they are making more than 2seasons of it, life's just too short. I don't bother even starting to watch.
