So last night we sat down to watch the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones! To say I was disappointed would be an understatement!
When GOT, as everyone calls it first came out, we weren’t really interested. Everyone was raving about how fantastic it was, but hubby and I weren’t even curious, so it passed us by!
Then last year, with news of a final series we got curious. We decided that perhaps we should see what all the fuss was about.
We borrowed the box set from a colleague at work and set aside some time.
The first series was difficult. Not in the usual sense, but in an interesting sense! There was so many things going on, different lands, characters etc that it wasn’t easy viewing. This said, we were still hooked.
As we got to learn who was who, who was linked to who etc, we were hooked.
We don’t have much free time as you know in the evenings, so told ourselves we would only watch 1 episode a night during the week! Yer right!
We would have great intentions, then as that episode finished there was no way we could go to bed without knowing what happened next!
We were totally hooked! GOT had taken over our lives. Sleep no longer mattered! I think in a few weeks we blitzed 7 Series! OMG! It was amazing. We couldn’t wait for the final series to start!
As the time drew closer, we decided to revisit series 7 again just to remind us of everything that had happened before!
Series 8 started and we were so excited. It was due to be shown at 2am in the morning so we had to record it, but Monday night was now our GOT night.
If you haven’t watched it, don’t worry I won’t do any spoilers!
The final series is made up of 6 episodes. I have to say, this series isn’t a patch on the first 7. Don’t get me wrong, there are still some twists and turns that you don’t expect.
Last night though, while there were plenty of them, it didn’t feel right! Things happened that shouldn’t! It certainly wasn’t what I expected! I finished watching feeling disappointed and cheated!
Next week is the final episode. I have no clue what will happen. That is probably a good sign as the script writers have really kept the plot creative. My only hope is that they don’t rush the ending.
Based on the series so far, I can see this will be the last one, so I hope I don’t end on disappointment. Only a week to find out!
If you haven’t seen GOT yet, definitely watch it, but from the very beginning!
If you have seen it, I’d love to know your thoughts too.
