    I’m one of the very few people that did not watch this show. I had to know what the hype was, even though i did not know what to expect.

    I went out last Saturday and bought season one. HOLY HELL!! Totally blew me away! I watched all of season one by the next day.

    I went out and bought seasons 2 and 3 Sunday. I’m now on episode 7 of season 3. So glad I don’t have to wait to watch these from week to week...yet. I will for sure buy every season.

    i envy you. treasure these times. you can never have them back!

    i was where you are a year ago. after years of people telling me to watch it i finally did. i wasnt getting into it initially and wondered if i would continue then there was the episode that ended with lady stark calling her banners in the tavern when tyrion confronted her...from that moment on i was hooked.

    i watched the first 6 seasons in about 4 months, just in time to catch season 7 in real time.

    I'm assuming you bought hard copies of the seasons.

    Why would you buy multiple seasons on DVD format when you can get HBO stream 1 month subscription for less than 1 season? In a few years DVD will be obsolete bro.

    My advice to the unsullied: don't read this thread again until you're caught up. Don't click spoiler buttons even if you think it's a harmless joke

    everyone dies

    Why do people still buy vinyl? I just like to own things like this. I do appreciate the heads up on the stream, but it’s just what i do.

    First season was epic, the past couple of seasons was good. Did not catch all the seasons in between.

    I most like reading the character sypnosis and stories and seeing how epic they are

    There is always a lot to take in with every episode. It wasn’t just about those two in that episode for me, i just hated to see it happen that way.

    Just finished season 4 which i bought same day. I cannot stop watching, it’s never seemingly enough. I’ve never done this with any show ever.

    Watching episode 1 of season 5 as I type this right now.

    Must be cool watching the older episodes while the rest of the world has watched it years ago.

    Like a new sensation.

    Same, I watched the whole series about 4 months ago for the very first time. Was devastated when I realized season 8 wasn't coming out for another year, even more devastated when I found out it's going to be the last season.

    If you thing GOT is great and addicting. Try watching Golden Girls. Give it until around the middle of the 1st season. You won't stop after that.

    Let’s hope that George RR Martin is HEAVILY involved in the script and HBO gives the series the finale it deserves. It’s going to take some clever writing to

    Undo all the terrible dialogue and plot lines of Season 7. It really treated the show like the fan fiction it wasn’t instead of the political gothic tour de force it was for so long. Please don’t force feed us Clegane Bowl, or some drawn out Viseryon vs Drogon firefight. Just write it well and give it the time it needs to conclude. Don’t mind waiting.

    Not to be mr. negative, but its hard to imagine a 6 episode final season where a lot of people aren't disappointed in various ways.

    I mean, I'll be disappointed unless a lot of characters die. Lol.

    Well. No reason to pay for HBO in 2018.
