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...

This needs to be remedied immediately.

2. So you zero in on your target.

Time to convert a new recruit.

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

Like they haven't heard already.

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

To fill your friend with ~good show vibes.~

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.

You may be a bit more excited than they are.

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

NBC

Maybe you sing along with the theme song. It's a rookie mistake.

🎶DOO WEE OOOOOH.🎶

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

What if they hate it?!

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

Can't miss one moment!

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

Makes lots of sense.

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.

And mostly fail.

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

"YES I SWEAR THE CGI GETS BETTER AND EVERYTHING."

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

But you can't say a word.

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

Too bad it's all the way in season 3.

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.

Or (even worse) that the show had an untimely end.

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.

Good luck.

23. Time to try again.
