    We just finished ours. Honestly enjoyed it through season 7. Not on the level of the middle seasons but still enjoyable.

    And then 8 was what it was and had us hating it again.

    yeah on second thought there's some really good scenes post RW that make the slog through the rest of the meh shit worth it. You at least have to get through Tyrion's trial because Dinkelage fucking kills it. Hardhome is worth watching. Battle of the Bastards is impressive from a technical and budgetary standpoint but I personally was really disliking the show by then so I probably wouldn't make it that far on a re-watch. I bet I'd stop after Arya's magical healing dagger wound

    I began a rewatch this past week. I just finished S1 Episode 10 “Blood and Fire”. A scene that flew under the radar the first time was Lord Commander Mormont’s intelligence and bravery in leading the Rangers out to find out what was going on with the Wildlings and Night Walkers. That scene was immediately followed by the one where Dany enters the inferno and emerges with the 3 dragon hatchlings. It served to just overwhelm the Castle Black happenings.

    True, but if you stop at the rw, you’ll miss season 4 which is one of the best seasons imo

    Wife's been casually rewatching and she just got to the final episode. As bad as season 8 was, nothing was more unrewarding than Cersei's death.

    She's the primary antagonist of the entire series and she essentially dies off screen. As a writer, how do you let that happen?
