We Prepare for the Storm: My Game of Thrones Plans

What I’m about to say is a little embarassing for me: I didn’t start watching Game of Thrones until the end of season six. I know there are people out there who have been with Game of Thrones since the show began back in 2011. Hell, there have been people that have followed the story since George R.R. Martin’s first book in the series came out in 1996. Me, I didn’t get into it until season six. I had seen friends and family members watch the show, and talk about how good it is. I saw the parodies and jokes, like this little sketch from Robot Chicken:

But my favorite was South Park’s “Black Friday” trilogy. Listen to that intro:

So, after years of hearing about it, and doing a quick read-up on the Game of Thrones wiki to get the gist, I watched it. I got hooked in about two seconds; why didn’t I watch it sooner?
To be honest, I may chosen a good time to jump in. Season six saw a major injustice avenged and the stakes build for the final battle. Plus, I could binge the series if I wanted to get caught up.
Now that I am caught up on everything, I can say this for certain: the final season of Game of Thrones will be the biggest TV event of the decade. I daresay it, it might be one of the greatest moments in TV history.
So, to prepare for it, I decided that, starting next week, I’m going to be writing about all things Game of Thrones. I’ll be writing my thoughts on each season, the biggest moments, the biggest deaths, and more. It all leads up to my honest reviews of the final season of Game of Thrones, coming the day after every episode.

Until then, be sure to check back tomorrow, when I talk about the trailer for Game of Thrones: Season 8.

I would also like to let everyone know where my loyalties lie: Team Stark-Targaryen for life.

  1. Sweet! Looking forward to it! I got into GOT after Season 7, so you’re not the only one who started the series late. I’m also excited for the final season. I’ll be posting my (most likely off the mark and completely, utterly wrong) predictions for it soon.

"Consider, can the universe be justifiably called infinite? Doubtful. It may not have a discernible end, but it had a beginning and its component parts definitely have a limited cosmological shelf-life. Splitting hairs or not, if history tells us anything, it's that scientists often make very poor poets. We're all just a ship of fools chasing phantoms, heedless of what really underwrites natural law." - Okabe Rintaro
