Game of Thrones - catching up

Post by Tim Wakefield on 2017-06-27, 17:32

I don't want to open the season 7 thread since I'm only through season 2. My HBO free trial expired but I want to catch up and watch season 7 with my buddies.

Are the summary/recap videos on YouTube sufficient? Any suggestions for how to catch up on the storyline?

I'm not above begging either, so here goes: if anyone has an HBO login I could use, that would be sweet.

Just like a super detailed summary of what has happened so far would be good enough

Start witha clash of kings, it's pretty detailed, although you probably can't finish all the books before the next season starts. Maybe try watchers on The wall. Check Wikipedia, but it's a lot.

Buy a fire stick and download Kodi. That's how I watched them all.

You can read the Wikis but you're missing a shitload of stuff regardless.

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 guess if someone just wants the gist of what happened so that they aren't completely lost when watching the new season. But you'd miss some amazing TV along the way.

Yeah..if you are trying to catch up then actually watch the shit. If you dont get done in time the new episodes will be on demand anyway. Don't skimp, GoT is fantastic watching.

Nice. I don't know exactly when I realized I was hooked. Not for awhile. Episode 1 was good but I was still kinda like...ehhh...not really my cup of tea.

Two beheadings in the first 10 minutes, so far so good.

So, after finishing season 1, I'm going to score it Vikings 7 Thrones 3.

I'm not sure how Ned Stark became a such a popular meme after he eventually failed.

Emilia Clarke is good.

Vikings is pretty solid, especially S1, but lacks depth and I lost interest after a few seasons. It was basically the same storyline over and over and over again.

The thing I liked about Vikings was the spirit of adventure and they were always on the move, trying to conquer something.

Back to Thrones, thank god that insufferable pompous ass twerp Joffrey is finally gone.

Well another insufferable character's entrance music should be playing right about now.
