Game of Thrones – A Well Timed Intervention.

We’ve started getting into Game of Thrones.  Finally!  It’s surprising really, for those who know me,  that its taken so long!  It’s full of warriors, smart women, politics, complicated relationships and intrigue.  Oh and fighting and sex galore.  Yes, there’s enough eye candy in GOT to suit those of both persuasions 🙂  I have always loved ‘fantasy’, books and movies, so GOT covers all the bases for me really.  I think it has been a well timed intervention of sorts.  I’ve found myself getting into How To Train Your Dragon and Frozen! Ahhh!  Mind you, this has coincided with the kids getting into these movies, but really, it’s not good that I’m suggesting we watch them………

I was wondering how it had taken us so long and then realised, it was released around the time our first bub was born.  And then we had our little boy.  GOT is not easy to follow – well, not at first anyway.  We’re into season two now and it’s still complicated.  And by all accounts it stays that way.  So just popping it on every now and then, when the kids ‘might’ sleep properly, really didn’t work initially for us.  We tried.  But now, most of the time, when the kids go to sleep usually get at least one, maybe two episodes in.  And really, it’s not the type of show you want your three year old seeing accidentally!

So it got me to thinking.   Game of Thrones is saving my brain.  Yep, true story.  It is a complicated, winding, intriguing and thoroughly adult story.  Hallelujah!  My brain sparks when I watch it and when I think about.  I’m going to read the books.  I’m going to read lots of books!

What else have I been ‘late to the party’ on, due to the fact that I’ve got two small children?  And they all seem to be TV shows, but that’s fine.  Vikings.  Oh my god, that show is great, but we only just found it recently.  True Detective – That has completely gone past me, but sounds like something I would get into.  True Blood.  I was behind the times anyway with that one, but did some major catching up.  LOVE. IT.  

What have you been ‘late to the party’ on?  Could be anything – movies, music, news, a food fad.  Hit me with them!

  • After the girls go to bed I love nothing better than putting on a gory highly inappropriate show to watch. I liked all of these shows you mention and for something a little different try Orange is the New Black and try Fargo as well.

    • Ohh, thanks Malinda! I’ve been meaning to check Fargo out, so I’ll add it to the list! Highly inappropriate is sometimes just what is needed after a day with the toddlers!!!

  • I’m yet to get on board with GOT. Maybe once the footy season is over and I get a chance at the remote! 🙂
