23 Things That Happen When You Introduce Someone To Your Favorite Show

Game of Thrones is back in two weeks. It's time to force your roommate to watch it.

1. You're talking to your friend one day like...

2. So you zero in on your target.

3. So you start to tell them all about it.

4. You gather everyone you know who also loves that show.

5. And you kinda can't shut up about it.

6. Maybe you've struck a bargain to watch one of their fave shows in exchange.

7. It's time. You get out the snacks and turn on the first episode.

8. The first kinda weird thing happens, and they're like...

9. You watch their face instead of the actual screen because... reactions.

10. And if they dare speak during a pivotal scene, you have to rewind it.

11. There's the weird moment you decide if you laugh loud enough, they'll start to like the jokes.

12. You get the sudden and often urge to pause to make sure nothing needs to be explained.

13. And you try super hard not to mouth the lines along with the characters.

14. They inevitably ask the question, "So does it get better?"

15. They ask a question or posit a theory about the show.

16. You just want them to get to that ~one episode~ that will get them hooked for sure.

17. They start to see the appeal of a character or actor they didn't really *get* before.

18. Then you bond over a newer character who's the WoRsT.

19. The first time they get emotional is like an AMAZING TREAT.

20. They catch up on their own and realize they now have to wait FOREVER between episodes.

21. Good news: they join the fandom and blame you for their eternal love.

22. Or (bad news) they don't actually love the show and you have to accept defeat.

23. Time to try again.
