Variety is the spice of life. What works for some people, doesn't work for others. That's just a fact. However, when it comes to TV, those rules don't apply. Everyone wants you to watch their favourite TV show and literally won't shut up about it until you do.
I'm talking - of course - about Game of Thrones.
OK, we get it. People get annoyed at the constant 'why don't you watch this', 'you'll love it' sort of arguments, but let's get one thing straight - not having watched something doesn't somehow make you cooler than anyone else, and they probably don't care whether you do or don't.
Well, that's what the internet would have us believe, anyway.
A lot of folks are gathering around the campfire on Twitter to hit back against the people who just think they're so damn cool, or somehow culturally superior because they don't watch the biggest, most expensive, and most talked-about show of the past decade.
Oh, well done, you. It must get just a tiny bit boring sitting around watching black and white art-cinema classics all the time, though?
Anyway - this all kicks off because people say things online like: "Am I still among the 1% of the people who still haven't watched a single episode of Game of Thrones."
Ooh, how edgy. Not like dragons and violence and shit like that, no? Think you're better than everyone, do you?
Other say stuff such as: "I belong to the small percentage of humans who haven't watched a second of Game of Thrones."
Well, bully for you mate. On you go and sit on your own whilst everyone else talks about the latest episode. Enjoy yourself.
All of this negativity obviously brings out the Game of Thrones fans in force. After all, nobody likes to be told that something that they love is shit (football fans know what I'm talking about).
They then say things like: "People that brag about how they haven't watched Game of Thrones really think they did something, just take the L & go."
As well as stuff like: "'Well I haven't watched GOT, shut up and go back to your hole no one cares."
I'm sure the internet used to be good for something, it's just not clear what it was any more.

Either way, one thing is for certain, Game of Thrones will be back on our screens in April 2019. That gives you ample time to watch every episode before then to catch up if - miraculously - this has changed your mind.
Or, you could at least hone your snooty responses to anyone who tries to talk about it in that time. No excuses, guys.
