Game of Thrones 1.1 Winter is Coming Review

Additional fun facts about April:

I’ve never seen Game of Thrones!

Technically I watched the first two episodes at a friend’s house last weekend, but we hardly ever see each other so we pretty much talked through the whole thing with her making me pay attention every once in a while. Since it’s been on for so long I have heard things that happen, but since I don’t really know any of the characters and have never read the books I honestly have no idea what is going on. This is nothing like going into The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Sherlock, or Supernatural where I had a really good idea of what happened long before I started watching them, and I started watching them mostly because I knew what was going to happen. I have an odd habit of getting into shows fairly late in the game.

I don’t think these reviews are going to be as involved as my movie reviews, but I thought it would be fun to make myself sit down and pay attention from the beginning of a show instead of having it play in the background until it sucks me in (I’m looking at you Doctor Who, and I’m sorry Stranger Things for doing that to you).

Prepare for *Hey weren’t they in______!* moments, even though they were in _____ was because they were on Game of Thrones.

On with the show!…. Spoilers ahead!

Okay so it took me a little while to get into The Walking Dead, mostly because it was one of the more gory graphic shows I’ve ever seen. So I’m not going to quit this just yet, but let me say, it has already passed The Walking Dead on gory/graphic stuff.

Seriously, these families are so messed up, who strips their sisters and bangs their sisters? That is just messed up dude. Not to mention everyone else. I’m just going to throw this ten year-old out a window, or make this ten year-old watch me cut this guy’s head off, or make this girl have sex with me WHILE SHE IS CRYING!

It’s like watching only the Negan episodes of season 7 of The Walking Dead, I’m just so uncomfortable right now. Is it because it’s the premier and they want to make sure you know what you are getting into?
