And I calculated that there are currently 67 past episode and the new series will start in the first half of 2019. So I averaged it to start April first and figured I need to watch 2 episodes per week to be up to date by then. I figured that if the series starts earlier I can increased to pace. I consider this an improvement over last season when I tried to binge watch 60 episodes in a row. So we watch episodes 3 and 4 of the first season while we shucked peas last evening.
So the peas got shucked, and we appreciated new details of GOT that we had overlooked previously.
