In the middle of a rewatch.  Trying like hell to finish!  Every bit as fantastic the second time 'round.  Really glad I'm doing it because now that I know much more about the world of GoT than I did 8 years ago, I'm picking up on names, places and connections that I missed or had questions about when they originally aired. It's given me a great appreciation for how layered this series is.

Both looking forward to and dreading Season 8.  Dreading because it's the last!

I did the same thing about a year ago thanks to Netflix streaming and was rewarded with a tremendous amount of context and insight revealed to me, as well.  I know more than one person including my brother who got so lost with the density of characters / family relationships / events swirling in those middle seasons that they gave up.  It's a show that almost benefits from binge watching because the names and places are easier to associate when there's not weeks or months separating their spaced appearances.

I did the same thing last year. The series has had so many characters that come and go and return again, it's almost necessary to review earlier seasons to keep up. Thankfully, doing this not only is enjoyable and helps me remember things I forgot, but also spot things I missed or glossed over the first time viewing.

I'm also on a rewatch.  I had been limiting myself to only one episode per day to let things sink in.  I'm on season 7 and limiting myself to one episode every other day. I am very excited to see where the last season takes us!

Almost didn't think we'd do it, but after pounding through nearly 40 episodes in three weeks we are down to our last six. That may, upon first reading, sound like a punishment but it's actually a joy.  There's so much fun to be had revisiting this world in a way I didn't experience it first-watch.  Characters, situations, moments.  They all have greater depth the second time through now that I know how it all plays out.  This is a series I think demands a second viewing.  As great as I thought it was before, it's better the second go 'round.

I was a hold out, not watching it until it was in its third season. A friend gave me discs for the first two seasons. I took two episodes, and then I was hooked. I am looking forward to this final season more than anything in recent memory next to AVENGERS: ENDGAME.

This is just all sorts of wrong.  My all-time favorite movie.

We'll definitely rectify that when you're here in a couple weeks!
