20 minutes of your life would be well spent watching these. You will not appreciate the references they make in the trailers to the story line but you should be in jaw dropping awe at what is happening and the sheer quality of what you are looking at.

Re: Game of Thrones

A friendly suggestion before you watch 7x01. When you sit down to watch it make sure you have no distractions, you are not finishing up a conversation with somebody or checking out facebook while you think the opening credits are going to roll. Make sure you have silence before you press play, you are concentrating and it has your undivided attention.

Re: Game of Thrones

To be completely honest, I've never seen more than a couple of episodes. Episode 1 was promising but it did seem like a LOTR rip off, but that may be unfair?

I can't commit to watching the trailers unless you tell me for sure that that Daenerys Targaryen bird strips in them. I hear she has a no nudity contract now which sort of makes it very unlikely I will stay awake to pick up plot lines

It's just like most soaps - lots of people being nasty to each other for their own gain - just has more sex and violence.

I've seen a few episodes of series one and just find there is too much sex (not needed at all) and the violence too graphic. Spoils the story.

and it doesn't let down as the series progresses. Yes it is graphic but tbh I think it is very well done and always compliments the mood and context of the scene. For example, you have got the little **** of a psycho Joffrey and you know how he thinks and what he is capable of so when somebody walks in on him and you see him doing a certain thing, although you know what to expect, actually seeing it has such an emotional impact and makes you hate him even more.
I think it is all cleverly done and serves to only deepen your emotional investment in the series. Like with the MCU, everything in GoT is done with a delicate and perfect balance.

The best TV series ever in my opinion, i watched the first 6 seasons all in 1 go.

Re: Game of Thrones

Funny you should say that because i was thinking about that last night. When it is all done and dusted i think i might take a week off work and have a GoT marathon and watch one season a day.

Re: Game of Thrones

I think 10 hours would be pushing it, I could probably do 3 or 4 in one go, then I'd need a break.
