I just finished Season 1. Really good so far, although as someone who never read the books, I still am trying to remember the names of all 485 characters. :lol :lol

I started watching last summer, and the toughest part for me was that half of those 485 characters look almost exactly alike.  "Hey...what happened to the 40-something year old guy with the brown hair and beard?"  Yeah...like that narrows it down!

It's hard at first watch, but if you watch again, look at their clothes.  The wardrobes are done so well on this show.  House colors and sigils and certain outfits match different houses and characters.

Haha, pretty much.

I like the show a lot, but not knowing all of the characters makes it hard to enjoy it to the fullest, and I do find some of the fantasy stuff a bit hokey (I am generally not a watcher of fantasy movies/shows).

Honest trailers did one around the time season 4 was coming out and it was spot on regarding how I felt about all the characters' familiarity at the time. I watched that trailer again a few months ago and this time it was so different that I knew every single one of them without a moment of hesitation.

By far the toughest thing about GOT was getting accustomed to all the characters. The first three seasons I watched when discussing with my brothers I’d just say ‘chic with the red hair’....’the guy that bangs his sister’ etc etc.

Rewatching really helped me out with that issue.

Definitely gonna rewatch prior to the final season. The couple episodes I’ve rewatched here and there it was so much different actually knowing what they were referring to rather than having no idea.

Seriously!

Funny thing is that I remember when my wife and I watched the first episode, and she then watched the next couple while I was at work.  I made some sort of comment about the "incest twins," and her response was "how did you know?"  The thing is that I was referring to Dani and her brother (who just looked like they were incestuous or were the product of incest (which they are, although I didn't know it at the time)).  She thought I was referring to Jamie and Cersei (whom I hadn't yet seen in action).

I'll definitely be re-watching all of the prior seasons at least once in preparation for season 8.

I found GOT hard to follow when binging. I didn't start watching it live with the rest of the world until season 6. It got much easier to remember who people were and what was going on when I had a week to discuss each episode before watching the next one. When I'd sit down and plow through 5-10 episodes on a lazy Sunday, I was being exposed to so much information that it made it difficult to process it all.

That was my experience with it as well, once I caught up and there was time between episodes it really helped to understand what was going on

Pretty cool deleted scene from Season 4 between Tywin and Pycelle

Ah, yes, seen that one.

Most people says nice things to you and then talk shit behind your back. Tywin instead was always insulting Tyrion to his face, and here he kinda complimented him on his tenure as Hand  :D

That scene also exposed Pycelle for who he was, which was kind of shown via the whore scene with him and other references, but this scene made it obvious.

Saw a post on Facebook about how supposedly the biggest battle of the show has done filming. 55 days, Battle of the Bastards took 35.
