I give it a 9. I last couple of seasons have dragged things out too much. I probably prefer House of Cards slightly.

The folks watching the show for the political machinations (and comparing it to House of Cards or Sopranos or whatever) are missing the point. Despite all the sex and violence, the entire story is a think piece. No one is going to "win" at the end. That's not at all what the point of the story ever was supposed to be - unless the producers change it, which would be just about the worst thing that could happen.

It would probably help the average viewer to know that GRRM was/is a conscientious objector.

Everyone I know is canceling the day season 7 ends and probably going to do a free month when season 8 finally rolls around. Terrible marketing idea by HBO, they are going to lose upwards of 18 mos of subscriptions in the meantime. No one is going to carry the intermittent period.

I know there won't be any substantial development on Bran/NK/The Wall until the later episodes of this upcoming season, but it is fun to speculate. If the show sticks to the "there is no hope" angle with the WW and the army of Wights, there is going to be an absolutely brutal sequence when they finally get through the wall

Been binge re-watching all 6 seasons the past few weeks to prepare for season 7...whew, it's been great, even better than the first few times I watched them. Rains of castamere, hardhome, battle of the bastards...the door, my god talk about hitting you right in the feels!! Really anxious to see what's in store for S7.

It's crazy how many characters were re-cast: the mountain, Dario, 3 eyed raven...

Sir Gregor was always going to be difficult to cast considering in the books he's 8 feet tall.

My wife and I did the same thing over the course of the last month or so. It's fun to pick up a LOT of small things along the way, plus it's an easier watch now that you know who everyone is from the start. There's so much foreshadowing that you don't see the first time through. And yeah, Rains of Castamere is played quit a bit at the first half of the show.

Definitely need to re watch some of the older episodes before the next season rolls around. I noticed some of the promotional pictures going around on Facebook today... getting excited!

The Ringer put out podcasts the dive into each episode. They've been releasing them one season at a time, I think they are up to season 3. It's called Binge Mode. Definitely worth a listen if podcasts are your thing.
