Winter is coming.
Technically, winter came last season but I am still super super excited.
Game of Thrones is back!
And thus, it begins. The war for Westeros. But a more immediate threat is the war between the Watchers of the greatest TV Series of all time and the non-watchers. You guys are so… You know what, I can’t even.
My wife and I (yes Ian, you read correctly) just finished watching the first 7 seasons. It was the hardest thing I have ever done. See, I had already seen the 7 seasons but my wife was all like, “Mimi niliona tu mpaka Joffrey akikufa”.
I was like, “That was years ago! Hata you don’t even know Ramsay.”
“I don’t care who Ramsay is.”
“You better care who Ramsay is!”
“We’re going to watch this thing together. From scratch.”
“No. We are not. I don’t want to.”
At this point, I gasp because, who wouldn’t want to watch this show. There’s danger, intrigue, passion, romance, politics, zombies and dragons! And, you know, naked bodies for those who are into that stuff.
“We’re going to watch it.”
I did not know how or when but I got the first season and played it. An episode a day, I told myself. Wifey was like this picture of Lyanna Mormont all the time.
And then after Joffrey died she was like.
And then by the time Tommen (the worst character in the history of mankind) was king she was like.
And then, miracle of miracles, she said to me. “I actually like this show.”
And I was like.
Jesus can come back now.
Although He should wait a bit till season 8 is done.
And till I get a Blu-ray copy of Captain Marvel.
Okay, maybe He can come back after Endgame.
