10 Reasons I Did Not Watch Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones is a good show, granted.  Lots of people watch it, I understand.  And it seems to be the darling of social media, right - #GoT.

But, I did not watch Game of Thrones last night and very likely will not watch much of Season 4, unless randomly.  Why?

  1. I have a two-year-old.
  2. My two-year-old doesn't like Game of Thrones.
  3. There is not a single regular television series that airs between 7 pm and 10 pm that I have watched in 20 years. In some cases, not for lacking of wanting to, but I am curious who all these people are who have the time to sit around and watch television series on a regular basis.
  4. I'd rather watch hockey.
  5. I'd rather watch Barclay's Premier League replays.
  6. When I did watch (most of the episodes) of season 1 of Game of Thrones, I couldn't understand the plot well enough to continue.
  7. When I did watch (most of the episodes) of season 1 of Game of Thrones, I couldn't understand what the actors were saying.
  8. There are no subtitles.
  9. The male actors all look alike.
  10. I'm not a hipster.

Did I mention I have a two-year-old?

No doubt Game of Thrones will continue to be popular without my viewing, but I'll have to stick to (sigh) hockey, soccer and BabyFirst tv.
