If you have HBOGo or access to it, get started now. Gotta start from the very beginning though. Two or three episodes a night, binge what you can on the weekends, you can probably be caught up by the end of this season. Start now.
Yes I concur. I will tell you the same thing I tell everybody though, first half of season one is a bit slower since a lot of it is setting up characters and introducing storylines. Once it hits the fan though, man does it and it is great stuff from then on out.
Man does this show crush your soul though.
^ One of my favorite (non-violent) moments in the show. Does spoil a certain character's death though without being familiar with said character it's not a complete spoiler.
One day I will give this another shot. But man, those first two episodes way back when I watched them were just brutally boring and slow going.
You said that Fear the Walking Dead finally grew on you or it finally picked up enough to make it mostly worth watching right? Once you get past the first few episodes where they're establishing back story(which I still enjoyed), this show makes FTWD look like Barney. I
f you don't like this show then you don't like good TV. I have never talked to anyone that has said anything along the lines of "Yeah, I watched the first season and didn't like it."
I'll say again it took me a LONG time to watch season one. I bought it after my brother and one of my friends talked it up so much. Watched 2-3 episodes and just didn't get it. I waited a good 3-4 months and finally started watching it again and now it's easily one of my favorite tv shows.
The thing with Game of Thrones is there are a lot of stories that are moving simultaneously that are all crucial plot points. I'd dare say GOT has more important subplots than any other show. Well with season one you have to start to establish those stories for those who didn't read the books. That's a big thing too, season one is better on a rewatch because now you are familiar with the characters and are more connected. Which I'm sure those who read the books going into season one had a better initial viewing experience than those that didn't simply because it was easier to follow. I'm not trying to sell GOT as overly complex but it certainly has a huge cast of characters that all range from semi important to very important. None of them really fail to serve a purpose even if it seems that way at first.
Sadly we only have 14 episodes left according to the showrunners. Next season is as of right now only going to be 7 episodes, which sucks considering GoT is pretty short for a typical show as it is. By their math the final season would then only be 6 episodes. I won't be shocked if HBO makes them stretch it out longer, that show has been a gold mine for them.
