    Watched the whole thing in one night around when it first came out.

    The next day told my sceptical housemates they had to watch it - we watched the whole thing in one night.

    Goes to show what a great story it was, it hooked us like crack.

    Did you feel a sense of accomplishment after the second viewing?

    ------------------

    The "everybody's talking about it" thing is a double-edged sword, it's fun in real life, but the majority of the online discussion is appalling. The articles, round-ups, re-caps etc are horrendous, so much time spent saying so little. That isn't the fault of the show, it's just the media these days, but it goes into overdrive with GoT because of how big it is.
    I don't bother with articles or anything, just fan discussion (observing not participating) and memes. I can't stand all that 'thinkpiece' shit either, it's the dying cry of journalism.

    I probably just felt impatient for series 2.

    I'm pretty sure I watched the whole of the first series of the wire in 1 night. Also Narcos more recently.

    It happens occasionally, like a shameful drug binge. Suddenly it's 7am, the credits are rolling on the penulimate episode and I'm wondering what normal people are doing right now.

    That person is only a midget because he's about ten.

    You say that like - and I can't emphasise this enough - it would be a bad thing.

    Can't believe I'm into this. Started with watching Brienne and The Hound fight after someone posted it on here a week or so back which led to watching more fights and battles and then reading top 10 GoT deaths lists and the next thing I knew I was watching whole episodes. They've been running it 24/7 on Sky here. Fuck.

    Game of Thrones is cool. If you like it it means you're cool too.

    It feels insane to have to wait a week to watch something now. You just expect it all on demand what with Netflix et al.

    Have an instant reaction to anything this popular. Also anything that feeds into the infantilization (especially via forced nerd culture) paradigm. Peter Jackson and the Star Wars revival being big players in all that. But this show is not as quaint as those. Plus the birds are fit. Idk, feels like I'm being hypnotised somehow, but I'm down with it.

    It feels like Breaking Bad to me, in that it's sucked me in and I've enjoyed it but I can't ever imagine watching it all again.

    I think I will rewatch it all one day, but for me it's not compulsively rewatchable because it's so frequently unpleasant.
