So you've heard all about Game Of Thrones and you've wanted to watch it, but now it 's time. The final season is coming and if you want to be in on it, we have you covered! This is a little break down of how you need to binge all previous seasons/episodes of Game Of Thrones before the new season starts on Sunday, April 14th!
So if you are going to watch it all, you are going to need to get HBO or YouTube, Amazon Prime, Google Play and iTunes..so check there to get the best deals!
Each episode averages about 55 minutes, taking that into consideration, here is the rundown of how to watch it all before the premiere of the new season!
Day By day: Slow and steady
If you like to take your time and watch in small doses, this is the method for you. Realistically most of us are binge-watching junkies and I would encourage you to follow your natural instincts. Pacing is going to be key here. One episode a day is reasonable. If you're headed for a more aggressive daily viewing, be prepared to play catch up on the weekends after you inevitably fall asleep on a weeknight during an important scene like The Red Wedding.
One episode per day... start Feb. 6.
Two episodes per day... start March 11.
Three episodes per day... start March 23.
Five episodes per day... start April 1.
By week: Minibinge
Some folks want to tackle their rewatch week by week. If a weeknight gets busy, it's no big deal. You can always play catch up on the weekend! And if you want to focus on each season as a whole, I highly recommend the "one season a week" plan. While 10 episodes a week might sound like a lot, you'll really be able to appreciate the tonal and thematic shifts between the seasons.
Five episodes per week... start the week of Jan. 14.
Seven episodes per week... start the week of Feb. 4.
One season per week... start the week of Feb. 25.
By weekend: True binge-watching
Weeknights are the worst. Do you want to hit the gym? Do you need to cook dinner? Do you have small humans that just won't go to bed? Sometimes we have to push our extra curricular activities to the weekend. But keep in mind that unless you start your rewatch ASAP you are going to be in for some seriously lazy weekends. Procrastinating for the win!
Six episodes per weekend... start by Jan. 26.
Ten episodes per weekend... start by March 2.
One season per weekend... start by Feb. 23.
And, just in case you missed it, here is the new season 8 trailer!
