Happy Game of Thrones Final Season Premiere Day!

This is it!  It’s hard to believe that Game of Thrones is almost over.  The first season aired in the spring of 2011.  I had heard of A Song of Ice and Fire from fellow The Wheel of Time fans, but I didn’t pick up the series until the show was ordered.  I pounded through the first four books.  I remember throwing A Storm of Swords across the living room of my now-wife’s apartment after reading the Red Wedding.  I took a few days off from studying for the bar to read A Dance With Dragons as soon as it was released.

I was living in Chicago when Game of Thrones aired.  I remember how exciting it was to see ads for the show featuring the iron throne around the city.  After growing up with the Conan movies and the sword and sorcery movie boom in the 80s, then an almost entirely fantasy-free decade with the 90s, it is just cool to see a high-quality fantasy show on television that is part of the cultural conversation.

I rewatched all 67 existing episodes of Game of Thrones in anticipation of the final season.  You can find my reviews of the first seven seasons below the jump, as well as several other Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire-related content I have featured at Every Day Should Be Tuesday over the years.

I will be resuming the recap posts I did for season 7.  You can find those posts below and expect my recap of the season 8 premiere tomorrow morning.

    What wonderful recaps! I don’t have time to go back (right now) and re-watch the seasons. This is great!

    (though I will come summer break….)
