I thought this might be a good thing to start since I "binge watch" so frequently. Notice I'm okay admitting this because I don't feel like this is looked down upon these days. We all find ourselves doing it, don't we? A television show pops up on Netflix, you remember the  previews when it initially started 5 seasons ago on whatever network so you decide, "Yeah, sure, why not." That's when suddenly Netflix asks "Hey, are you still watching?" after you've hit episode 7 and your entire Saturday is gone. Don't be ashamed. We've all been there. Unshowered, with potato chip crumbs on our t-shirts wondering where the day went.

I know exactly where the day went, it went to Game of Thrones. Well, at least this past weekend it did. I'm currently starting season 2 of the HBO series that people seem to be completely obsessed over. A fantasy land of Lords and dragons and hierarchy. I get it, I really do. I mean, I didn't at first but once you're invested the drama is overwhelming.

Here are some thoughts I had watching Season 1 of Game of Thrones:

  • I better like this crap.
  • Whoa, what the hell was that?!
  • Did he call her a white walker? Wait, is this like The Walking Dead???
  • Ew. Bloody.
  • Oh, that kid's cute...look at him climbing around.
  • Don't get mad at him for climbing, hello, do you have any idea how many kids are video game obsessed today? Oh, right fantasy land.
  • That dwarf dude gets some serious action.
  • Wait - aren't they brother and sister? (goes on imdb.com to confirm character names) EW!
  • Oh, that's why he shouldn't be climbing. Poor kid.
  • I'm glad I'm not in this world. Women are total punching bags!
  • She's totally going to fall for this, Drogo dude. Total Stockholm syndrome.
  • Whoa...anyone will kinda do anyone in this show, huh?
  • See, there she is, falling for Drogo. Drogo's a no-no, come on!
  • Geez, I've never wanted to punch a kid more than I want to punch the Kings son.
  • Annnnnnnd, there goes the King. This show will kill anyone off! It IS like The Walking Dead!
  • The dungeon has a great view!
  • Finally, the Stark family totally needs a break.
  • Well, that didn't go as planned, huh? I hate Joffrey. What a spoiled, entitled brat. The Queen has no control over her own kid.
  • "Oh, I'm Drogo I'm a bad-a**"
  • How is anyone okay with how women and even this Stark girl are treated?!
  • Say WHAT?!
  • WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED?!?!
  • I CAN'T EVEN.
  • THAT KILLED HIM?!
  • DID THEY JUST BEHEAD HIM?!
  • WHAT IS EVEN GOING ON?!
  • BABY DRAGONS?!
  • WHAT IN THE EVER LOVIN...
  • WHAT?!?
  • *turns off last episode of Season 1*
  • I have time for one more episode, I think.
  • I'm going to be tired tomorrow.
  • It's going to be totally worth it.
  • *clicks Season 2 on* Okay, lets do this...
