Brief Explanation

Love could be in the air for this couple as Sarah invites Ian over to her place to watch the latest instalment of 'Game of Thrones'. He naturally says, "Yes"... but there's a problem. A fifty episode-sized problem, in fact. You see, Ian hasn't seen a single episode of the show. "Winter is coming", intones the VO - not that it'll make much sense to our Westeros newbie. Luckily, with pay TV provider Foxtel on his side, Ian can embark on a mission to watch every episode before Monday night. As fans of the show will attest however, one doesn't so much watch 'Game of Thrones' as let it put you through the blood-soaked ringer.

Execution

This film is all about what us men, in all of our pathetic neediness, do to every women we like... We lie. Sometimes it’s about how much we shower, the fact that we have hobbies other than just masturbation and beer, but the most common of all it’s that we share the same interests. Game of Thrones (for anyone who just jumps in and watches a random episode) is a deep web of intrigue and mind boggling confusion. This film is a fast paced anthropological study of the cultural phenomenon that is "the binge". The frenetic piecing together of information; with moments of success, moments of absolute stress, moments of sheer confusion mixed together as an intense and brutal tapestry of experience. It’s a drama about a guy watching a drama, shot with the production quality of a contemporary retelling of the conflicts of Westeros.
