Ok, I tried and I couldn't get into it either. Help me out, where should I start and how many shows do I need to watch to get into this? I guess the premier and go from there. But how many shows until I am hooked?

It took me until the end of season 1 to get invested. Which, to be honest, is a real long time for a show. Breaking Bad took me three episodes before I couldn't stop watching.

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

I first started watching it in season four and just could not get into it mostly because there were so many stories going on it was impossible to sort out.  I went back to the start of season one and it makes sense and flows well if you start at the beginning.

I would agree you really need to watch the first season to be hooked.  The best episodes of the season are 8/9 (this season 9 and 10).  The first seven+ episodes are really set-up episodes, the problem is you really need the ground work to appreciate the later episodes.

Not true. It's part of the entire package but it's not just for the fucking nudity. That's erroneous.

You can find it without HBO go. Do as you please.

I've read the books. I think Travis might be on the last one. They are long and much more detailed. I can't wait for winds of winter.

Caught up on season 6. Who do we think takes the iron throne? Time to place bets, only 12-13 episodes left.

It's not that bad. I got over that stigma after season 1. Season 1 is so boring, but it gets going in season 2 and beyond. S5 and 6 are fucking awesome.

I am NOT into any medieval time type of movies/film at all, but this is pretty rad.

Honestly I read the description for the episode and I can't see how I'm gonna like this. But I'm going in open minded. Let's see. I might pollute this thread a bit with questions. But fuck it, it's the swill. Hope you guys don't mind me interrupting your S6 thread.

I'm doing shit on my laptop with Thrones on for a while. I got you.

I'm telling you - it may seem larpy early on but just keep watching. It's the darkest shit on TV. You will enjoy it.

If you're getting into it because you want to see dragons and ice zombies you're in it for the wrong reasons.
If you want to see unflinching brutality of man and cutthroat Machiavellian political maneuvering you've found the right show.

I made a comparison when I watched it the first time. White Walkers = the Predator? They clearly are aliens or some shit. Not humans.

What folly said - something that will progress over the time of the show. There's a lot of dialogue but it's deep. Ain't no NBC drama.

Guys I'm not gonna lie. I'm kinda engaged. Not gonna finish S1E1 tonight. But I will finish it. I'm 40 min into a 61 min episode.

It is kinda larpy, though. I'm not trying to be cool guy and judge. To me, anything that's all Kings and Queens and Monarchs and North Ends and South Ends and royalty and princes and shit reminds me of the worst hotel on the Strip....the Excalibur. This is kinda Excalibur but with lots of gore.

I'll try to stick with it. Initial impressions. And yes, now I'm sorta drunk.

Get off me. Like I said I had to watch Tyrant and then I was getting sleepy. I had 75 unread emails when I woke up this morning. I had to be prepared to do some adulting today.

The first episode ends with incest, a child murder, and a rape scene. Hopefully this helps you make the push down the stretch.

The funny thing is when you said incest I thought you meant the creepy albino kid touching his hot albino sister's nipples. I didn't realize the dude the queen was boinking was her brother until the start of the 2nd episode.

I'm intrigued. I finished the 2nd today.

Dude... Daenerys' titties carried me through season 1. It's like a gateway drug to the storyline.
