9 Reasons You Should Definitely NOT Watch Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones is HBO's television series of George R.R. Martin's book famous book series, A Song of Ice and Fire. With the all of the hype about the show, especially this season, I thought I would share my thoughts on why you should not watch (or read) Game Of Thrones.

1. The story line.

Please do not watch Game of Thrones unless you want to get completely "hooked" by the entire storyline of this show. I started watching this show at the beginning of the year, and the storyline is so relatable to many different people with different interests. If you have no interest in a show with an incredible storyline, this probably isn't the show for you.

2. The characters.

The characters in Game Of Thrones are well developed and all are very intentional with their actions. While watching and reading the series, it is really easy to relate to a character because of how diverse the characters are.

You definitely should not get into Game of Thrones unless you want to have an attachment to characters!

3. Dragons.

No explanation necessary on that one.

4. Battles!

Alright, the entire show is basically one huge battle for the throne of the seven kingdoms. So if you hate battles, you probably would not like Game of Thrones.

5. Dragons

Every episode leaves you on the edge of your seat, anxiously waiting for the next. Likewise with the books. George R. R. Martin has a way of leaving you wanting more and more! If you cannot handle waiting episode to episode, season to season, or even waiting years for the next incredibly put together series, then this show is not for you at all!

7. Details

George R. R. Martin has only wrote 5 books so far in the Game of Thrones series, but they are packed with tons of detail, and an amazing story line to go with it. This is definitely not a show that you can put on for "background noise" you need to make sure that you are paying attention to detail! Otherwise, this show is definitely not for you!

9. It is Addicting.

So the last and the most important reason why you should not watch HBO's Game of Thrones would be that it is absolutely addicting, After finishing the first episode, I was hooked. Even more so, after finishing the first book I was hooked. I strongly recommend not getting into this series if you have no free-time and absolutely no desire to watch a totally bad ass show that will always keep you anxious and excited for the next episode.

As a personal favor for me, please do not start Game Of Thrones. It is the most addicting, wonderfully horrible thing that I have gotten into so far!

How it feels being a "Game of Thrones" fan:

Did I mention that there are dragons?!

With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
