You know, I don't get this at all. Don't you people ever watch TV series?
I love being part of an evolving story, to share and discuss and experience it as it happens. To just sit on the sidelines for ten months and wait… Nope, I don't get it! The joy of episodic is just this: taking part. It's part of the reason we're going down this path, and I can't wait to jump on the forum every day to read the latest theories and arguments.
I do hope most of you will be along for the ride. As for the rest of you — I respect your decision to wait. I just…don't get it!
LOL, I know I'm weird. The biggest problem I face is that I take an extreme stance on avoiding spoilers. I never watch previews for upcoming episodes. I never watch recaps because sometimes they can hint indirectly at what's going to come*. And when discussing an evolving story with others, they almost always watch the previews and say, "well based on what we saw in the previews, it looks like XYZ is going to happen." And with a community like this one with people who are very smart and very well-versed in the lore, they ARE going to figure some things out (I think you've even confirmed this, IIRC). Their predictions will be based on so much past knowledge, keen eyes for foreshadowing, and paying attention to minute details, that their conclusions will spoil my ability to theorize and predict on my own, and enjoy the unfolding story with a fresh eye, or at least my own eyes.
Oh, and as far as your question-- no, I don't watch story-based TV series with the exception of Game of Thrones.
I do admit it's a good thing that most people aren't like me in this respect. I love that RTG will be able to read the forums and "read the latest theories and arguments." What a thrill that must be to any game-maker!
* Perfect example of this: Game of Thrones Season 3 episode 1...series recap shows Barristan Selmy getting stripped of his title and sent off by King Joffrey in Season 1. We hadn't seen him since. Hmm...I guess he's coming back soon, isn't he?! I never watched recaps but I decided to watch that one. As a consequence, I did not get to be surprised when he showed up early in Season 3.
