Playing Catch Up With Game of Thrones on a Rainy Sunday

I caught the 1st two episodes of the series last year, but as I had to rely of the kindness of friends (no HBO - can't justify it) I never caught the rest.  Until I realized Amazon had the 1st season for sale in DVD.  Quickly snagged it.

Today is a nice rainy day here in NYC, so I figured I'd see if my wife was open to watching it.  As she fell asleep during the Fellowship of the Ring just after the initial credits, I figure red this would turn into one of those "watch it while she's at yoga" type of shows.

Nope.  Although she almost succumbed to Mr Sandman in the first 20 minutes, she suddenly got hooked.  Hooked as in me telling her after we watched episode 6 "We have work in the morning and 4 more hours of viewing to finish the season.  Let's call it for now."

She's hooked, I'm having a blast.  It's going to be a long wait for season 2 when we wrap this up ;)


  1. I put about 20 min into the first episode before turning it off. I didn't like the books but I was hoping that the tv show would be different and better. I will have to give it another try.

  2. My wife and I love the series too. We are now in the long wait for season 2 since we don't have HBO either...

    You guys should watch the Pillars of the Earth series, that was really good too! You wouldn't think a story about building a cathedral would be as entertaining.
