Here's How To Efficiently Binge Game of Thrones Before Season 7
Winter is coming on July 16th, so what better way to prepare for the coming storm than by staying inside and re-watching all six seasons of Game of Thrones?
Who needs summer anyway?
So much has changed since Season 1 (remember when Ned Stark was
the hand of the king
alive and relevant?), but there's no doubt that some of those storylines will still be alive and kicking in Season 7.
And what's the best way to revisit said storylines? Re-watching every. single. episode.
Let's break down the timing. No complex math involved, I promise.
Each of the six seasons has 10 episodes, which means there are 60 glorious episode to catch up on.
Season 1 --> 557 minutes
Season 2 --> 549 minutes
Season 3 --> 555 minutes
Season 4 --> 543 minutes
Season 5 --> 561 minutes
Season 6 --> 563 minutes
Altogether that's 3,328 minutes, or 55 hours and 28 minutes, of death and destruction to catch up on.
If you started today, June 6th, you'd have exactly 40 days, or 960 hours, to finish all six seasons, translating to a rough 3.5 hours per day, which is about 3 and a half episodes.
Let's say you're crunched for time and start the re-watch on June 16th, exactly a month before the Season 7 premier. That gives you 30 days, or 720 hours.
This means you would have to watch 4.62 hours of GoT each day, or around 4 and 2/3 episodes.
If you skipped the opening credits (on average 1:40 minutes each), you'd be saving yourself at least 88 minutes.
Not too shabby. And really, what would you do during the summer besides pretending it's winter?
