So, here's the GoT (not go-t) story so far …
DL'd all of season 1 and 2. I know that me wife likes those old-timey "period" programs, but really hates like scary spooky stuff, and GoT has a lot from column A and a little from column B. So, got her to commit to watching the first three episodes before deciding to continue watching or bail.
Of course S01E01 starts with a massacre at the hands of some non-descript white walker character, so she didn't much like ep 1. But, she carried through with the commitment to watch 2 more. By end of ep 3, she wasn't convinced she liked the series, but willing to go one more. Ep 4 really starts to move out of character development and jumps fully into to all the political intrigue and has a real cliffhanger ending … so by the end of that one she was hooked and super keen to see more.
So we've been watching 1/night for a while now. I just informed her that we've finished watching season 1 and she was all like "holy crap, we've already watched a whole season worth? We have to see what happens next!"
Looks like we'll be through season 2 by end of next weekend. She'll freak when I tell her that season 3 doesn't even air on HBO until end of this month!
