    Don’t be discouraged, Stephan. I never saw an episode of “Game of Thrones” either.

    I haven’t even seen the “South Park” episode “All About the Mormons” nor the Book of Mormon musical. I don’t even intend to.

    I’ve seen just enough of GoT to be confused every time about who’s who.

    Well, Stephen, include me in on that one. GOT is too violent for me.

    Ive seen every episode so far – I enjoy it – I don’t understand why people wear the comment “Ive never seen an episode of GOT” as a badge of honour. There are plenty of shows out there that are far worse and more worthy of your contempt. Ive never seen a full episode of a reality show but I don’t go broadcasting it everywhere – or is GOT denying the new Vegetarianism ???

    I’ve never seen it either. Must have something to do with the fact I don’t have cable. After Letterman retired, I just never bothered renewing my subscription.

    I’ve never seen it either. I was watching The Borgias at the time and it seemed to have enough historic sex and violence to be a substitute. Pity they never did a third season of that one.

    I watched GoT until Sean Bean was killed, then lost interest.

    Not one episode for me, either. But I’ve seen every episode of Seinfeld and can quote the scripts in their entirety.

    Better’n that was this one twit on a podcast I quit listening to who loved it, except he hated the dragons, didn’t like the r@pe scenes, thought some of the plot line was stupid, and I’m sure he had other critiques. But he absolutely LOVED the show.

    I haven’t had television reception for over 13 years. No cable available out here where I live either. I only watch things on DVDs, so I can be VERY selective on what I watch. Give me a classic old movie anytime…that and Dr. Who…

    I wonder if Pig saw the furry with the large cylinder on the top of its head that tapered to a point? That’s the furry with the syringe on top. Sorry Stephan. I think I beat you to it.

    I’ve watched some analyses on YouTube of the castles portrayed in the series (and what is wrong with them) and of the combat scenes (which are usually above average for stage combat, but are still definitely stage combat). The series really doesn’t interest me beyond that.

    It’s a furry convention, not a furries convention. Pig must not have stayed with the fandom.

    That ol’ “Game of Thrones” is simple. Kind of like musical chairs. But it involves a large bathroom, three ‘thrones’ (all with the top down), four ‘people’ hearing a loud, urgent call from nature, and, of course, music. Who will not have a throne when the music stops?!

    I bought the first season, watched the first episode and realized it’s not really appropriate to watch around a middle school student, and since she stays up as late as me and later than her mother, we haven’t ever gotten back to it. Maybe when she’s 15 we’ll binge watch the whole thing.

    You’re not as sick as they think, Cartoon-Boy! Or, you have a lot of company out here. MANY of us have never seen an episode of Game of Thrones (though I’ll confess to having seen a snippet or two on YouTube).

    On the other hand, all that not withstanding, you could still be a sick weirdo freak!

    I’ve never seen Game of Thrones either. I started reading his books but around the third or fourth book the storyline started to get too stupid for my taste and the wait time for the next “installment” too long.

    A woman on a news program once called it “Game of Thorns,” so I’m guessing it’s quite normal not to know anything about the show.

    Okay, ignoring the game of thrones stuff…Pig is already an anthropomorphic animal, why would he need or want to dress up for a furry convention?

    I never watch Game of Thrones either, because I’m not really into those fantasy drama shows, and I don’t think my parents would let me watch it anyway, EVEN THOUGH I’M ALMOST 20!!
