game-of-thrones-logo-i21034

Long-time show hold-outs Bina007 and Nadia give in the to the hype and binge-watch Game of Thrones seasons 5, 6 and 7 while pop-culture queen Michal/Inkasrain stands aside and laughs as their heads explode.

In the first spoiler-free section, we discuss the impact of no-watchers vs show-watchers on the fandom in general and VOK in particular, and whether it’s better to watch with a crowd or alone.

At 20 minutes in we enter our show-spoiler part of the show with a general discussion of seasons 5 to 7. At 26 mins in we get into Season 5 in depth – at 48m, Season 6 and at 1hr2m, Season 7. The after show begins at 1hr 20m and there’s some TWOW spoilery-stuff at 1hr24m.
