Right - I've read the first book and I've bought a NowTV box to watch Series 1 - excited!

Am I going to like it? grin

If you've read the book you're halfway there. There's so many characters, it's hard to keep track at first. Isn't it the biggest show out right now? You've done well to not watch it by now ;) I can't wait for the new series. Lucky that you can binge all these seasons with fresh eyes.

I'm so jealous. Enjoy!!!!!!

I tried the first ten minutes last year but couldn't figure out who was who or what the heck was going on!

DB lent me the book and I loved it!

Now I just need DH to bugger off to bed. grin

I watched the first one after having dd2 and switched off - bear with it for a couple of episodes!

I agree, stick with it. It just gets better and better.

I remember DH making me watch S1 and I got bored (!) because I'd been reading how the first series ended. But I gave it a another go and I'm glad I did.

Episode 1 done - made sense this time! Rather a lot of violent sexual stuff, but after the book that should be no surprise!

I posted not too long ago about finally starting GOT and being shocked at the first episode. Posters were not wrong though and it does just get better and better. I was completely hooked by about episode 4.

DH asked me if I wanted to 'Binge watch' from Episode One (I have seen the odd bit, not inspired me to sit down and get on board)

How many episodes/hours would I be looking at if I do get hooked?

NuggetofPurestGreen Wed 13-Apr-16 18:13:28

10 episodes per season, 5 seasons. So 50! And then new season next week.

I'm reading the books, currently on A Feast for Crows. Love them. Haven't seen any of the programmes (except a clip ofThe Rains of Castermere: Red Wedding on youtube) but would one day love to watch the boxed sets (if I can borrow them off someone).

Get ready to see an awful lot of tits and minge.

I've seen every episode so far and I really respect it as a whole. The books get very meandering as they go on (the last one was downright hard work) and the TV show does a heroic of keeping it zipping along.

But by God I got sick and tired of tits and minge.

Euphemia Wed 13-Apr-16 18:30:34

LOL @ tits and minge.

I bet we never see a nice, big, stiff cock though, do we? angry

StrawberrytallCake Wed 13-Apr-16 18:31:02

Hahahaha - I've been desensitised to the T&M so much I barely remember it after the first episode.

ElspethFlashman Wed 13-Apr-16 18:36:03

Well actually someone does go flapping about in an enormous manner but I'll leave that as a surprise, lol.

ElspethFlashman Wed 13-Apr-16 18:37:47

Strawberry how could you forget that ghastly brothel scene with LF?

Euphemia Wed 13-Apr-16 18:41:55

No cock spoilers, please. wink

StrawberrytallCake Thu 14-Apr-16 06:36:19

Honestly Elspeth it's behind the 'no you definitely don't want to think about that' veil in my mind, I'm sure it'll come flooding back on 24th April grin

I did a snort at the thread title ... not many virgins in GoT!

Euphemia Thu 14-Apr-16 19:51:43

Yeah it was a bit naughty of me. wink

yumyumpoppycat Thu 14-Apr-16 19:53:51

I was really surprised no one had said anything...only a couple of t&m mentions grin

But by God I got sick and tired of tits and minge.

I usually love a good sci-fi or fantasy series and enjoyed the plot and characters in GOT, especially Arya, but it was the tits and minge that finally did for me. They were the backdrop to just about everything, except for the snowy bits. I gave up after season 2, but it sounds like I swerved the Red Wedding (?) episode so a result!
