Where do I begin?
If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, then be forewarned. There may be spoilers in this post.
All I know is, I’ve never become so quickly sucked into a fandom as I have with Game of Thrones.
I literally just started watching two weeks ago. I’ve heard all about it. I’ve seen my friends post about it on social media. But I’ve just never been interested – until now. My husband did a 2 week marathon not too long ago. And now my daughter and her boyfriend are hooked.
I can’t tell you how fried my eyeballs are from binging, for the sole purpose of being current, in time for the season 7 premier, which was this past Sunday.
If you’re a fan of medieval fantasy, then this show is possibly for you. But if you’re easily triggered by things like incest and blood, then maybe it’s not for you.
Short of bestiality and pedophilia (ILLEGAL!!!), this show pulls out all the stops. HOLY SHIT. I’m 46 years old, and my jaw has dropped a few times.
Oh well. What little of my innocence was left over, is now destroyed. My poor eyes… and ears! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard ‘cunt’ over the course of 60 episodes, but I do know it is more than I’ve heard it in my 46 years. GOOD GRIEF, I HATE that word.
If you’re considering joining this fandom, do NOT get attached to any characters. Everybody fucking dies. And just when you think things are going in favor of a certain character, they die too, God damnit!
This past Sunday’s season 7 premier featured a surprise cameo by Ed Sheeran, representing House Lannister. Dear GOD. I had completely forgotten that he was going to have a part in the show. Here I was thinking he was just contributing music, when he shows up on my gigantic flat screen. Needless to say, my daughter was picking on me because I squealed like a bloody fangirl when I saw his face. O M G
