Ladies and gentlemen, I’m seriously considering rewatching all of “Game of Thrones” on HBO.

Now, as you all know by now, I’m a huge fan of the hit show. I’m also cooped up in my house because I’m doing my part in the war against coronavirus, and trying my best to save the college football season.

I’ve already cruised through “Yellowstone,” “Ozark” and every available episode of “Westworld.” I’m seriously considering firing up “Game of Thrones” from the start.

There’s just one major problem, and it’s really stopping me from diving in. I’m not sure I can rewatch the ending and not want to throw something through my TV.

As much as I love “GoT,” I’m not going to sit here and pretend like the ending was anything less than trash. It was horrifically bad.

Right now, we’ve already had a lot of bad news in the world. We’ve had a lot of heartbreak after March Madness and sports were canceled.

I’m honestly not sure I’m emotionally ready to rewatch all of “Game of Thrones,” get built up with excitement and then have it all come crashing down in season eight.

I’m not sure my soul can take that kind of punch during the coronavirus pandemic.

Then again, I love living on the edge. I might as well risk it and fire it up! Stay tuned because there could be a massive binge right around the corner.
