Game of Thrones season 8 : I don’t watch the series and I told you why

While the world eagerly awaits the season 8 of Game of Thrones (fans count the days for at least a year), I’m actually wondering how I will manage to escape conversations about the episodes. Yes, I don’t watch the series and it does not bother me absolutely not. I’m not an alien, I assure you. I explain why I’m not the show.

A craze that I don’t understand

“What are you lookin at not Game of Thrones ? But how you doing”, “You should look at this is the best series”, “don’t worry, you’ll have to put in it”, “It’s going your life ?” Yes, it will, thank you for asking. All of these phrases, I hear them regularly when I say that I don’t watch Game of Thrones.

People when I say that I don’t watch Game of Thrones

So no, I don’t come from another planet. What reassures me is that I’m not the only one not to follow the series. This does not make us of those awkward, eh ! We can also see very well on social networks that there are two team.

One of the mega fans

Those who don’t follow the series

To be honest, I don’t want to put myself in the series just to make fun to my friends and to be back in the clan GOT. There is so much other series to watch. So, I prefer to follow my tastes and my instincts. While the whole world will be watching season 8, I will seek a series less well known to look at and I will take advantage of my Monday in the most great peace.

Game of Thrones season 8 : me in front of all the fans

After all, I’m not saying that people are watching only Game of Thrones, but I’d like to see them have as much enthusiasm for other shows such as Quicksand or Brooklyn Nine Nine. It attracts me more ! However, I tried to watch Game of Thrones. I promise you, I’ve made the effort, but I don’t have any hooked. This is where I said, ‘but why is all the world to me sells it as the best series of the earth’.

“This is the best series of the Earth.” Good Ah ?

I wonder what she was also exceptional, explain to me, really. I do not judge eh, but there are dragons, of the dead, swords… ok this is cool, but we are already seeing it everywhere in the movies or on tv. It may be that the dragons speak, or that the fights are really worth the look, I don’t know… I tell myself that the next hyper trash adds may be a value to the series. I must admit that all the hype around Game of Thrones has me repulsed. I don’t like to do like everything in the world, it is true, and there, I find that it is too much.

There must be an orga-sick, the flemmeeeee

It seems that it has become almost a tradition in the mode and it should be respected and especially not to miss’. “What are you doing Monday evening ?”, “I stay at home and watch Game of Thrones”. Ah yeah ok. Why block an evening for a series that you can watch in the next day or even the week after ? I’m stumped.

Game of Thrones

After, I understand the anguish of spoilers because this series is surely the least protected of all. And then, there was always a friend that you balance too proud a huge spoiler, kind of, a death. At this moment, you hate clearly. But imagine : you have a date with the boy or the girl of your dreams and the only day where he/she is available, it is Monday. You really see him say ‘oh no, ossd, I have the episode of Game of Thrones” ? After that, if she or he is looking also, it is good.

When you refuse a date for Game of Thrones

Moreover, it can be as valid as a couple. You expect to spend a nice romantic evening, and there, thy or your chéri(e) to remind you the previously unseen episode. Aaaaaah ! And then, you can’t even go out with friends because they all have the same program that evening. We should create a group to bring together people who do not watch Game of Thrones, would we feel less alone.

Follow GOT, it’s an entire organization of sick in real life. It is necessary to make a blunder in its planning, to the social networks to avoid spoilers. Some people even take a least in advance to install software to block the info on season 8 and characters. Too much stuff to think about, I would have a headache in their place.

When you fear you spoiler Game of Thrones

Why so much love for Jon Snow ?

In addition to all that, there is another thing that I find difficult to follow : the madness around Jon Snow, played by Kit Harrington. It is sexy, it is beautiful, it is perfect… Yes, surely. But this is not the only actor to have all these qualities, non ? Maybe it’s the fur coat that is its charm ? I hope that some of you do not look for him, it would be a shame. All admire a photo of the actor all day, it is the same. Well, we know that a nice kid always add a little something extra in the series. I can’t contradict you on that.

Game of Thrones : why so much love for Jon Snow ?

True, it’s just not my style

In short, the mass effect with this series is a bit beyond me. So yes, we will surely say that “I have understood nothing to life”, but nevermind, I don’t feel excluded. Except that the real reason why I don’t watch Game of Thrones is that it is not my delirium. I do not catch with the universe that is not at all my style to the original, either in the movies or the series. The dragons, the swords, the middle ages, the history of kings and queens… Very little for me.

Game of Thrones : a series with dragons

So, complicated to GOT, even with all my good will. And then there’s the need to follow the series too. It looks like he has all the time of the dead. You don’t even have the time you attach to a character that he is already dead or about to die. And then, they are too many. They have names so complicated in the genus Daenerys Targaryen, queen of Andals. There were not more simple ? Even my friends are there anymore.

Too many deaths in Game of Thrones

Otherwise the good news in all of this, is that the season 8 of Game of Thrones is the latest. Finish the conversation from Tuesday on the last episode of the “best series of the earth”. Alléluiaaaaaa.
