I have to admit, I didn’t think I’d like it. So much blood, gore, violence and over the top sex scenes that really had nothing to do with the story (well, most of them anyway) that it just didn’t seem like it was a show for me. I never watched the previous seasons even though my husband had and I would just go watch something else it when it was on.
Then my husband mentioned that season 8 was starting in a few weeks and I thought ‘well let me watch the first episode’ and I was hooked. I watched 7 seasons in a two week time span and when season 8 rolled around, I was afraid to watch one at a time without being able to binge watch one right after the other. How would I survive having to wait an entire week to watch the next episode? I found out quickly that if you don’t watch the newest episode right away, what happened in that episode is splashed all over the news and social media!
So I decided to watch them as they are released by HBO on Sunday nights at 9pm. The story line is fantastic and if you look away during the bloody scenes, you’d probably love it if you’re into medieval kingdoms, kings, queens, power trips and such.
Do you watch? Leave me a comment below and let me know your thoughts…
