How long will it take you to watch seasons 1-7 before season 8 is released?
I don’t think it will surprise any of you to know we’re huge Game of Thrones fans, our daughters middle name is Snow and Daddy is Jon (see what we did there). As you know we’re both nurses so need to plan our TV time carefully for our perperation for Game of Thrones season 8!
Did you see the
Here‘s the teaser trailer that was released with the date. Arya and Sansa look the same age, but I think Jon looks a little older. Will Jon survive and claim the Throne?
Surely we should have a full trailer and release date soon. PLEASE.
So I started to do some research into how long it would take us to catch up on seasons 1-7,
as of today (9th January) to my approximate start date of April 7th, as of today 15th January 2019 and it’s now confirmed release date 15th April 2019, which is 12 weeks, 90 days.
So the run times of each season are:
Season 1 = 557 minutes
Season 2 = 549 minutes
Season 3 = 555 minutes
Season 4 = 543 minutes
Season 5 = 561 minutes
Season 6 = 563 minutes
Season 7 = 422 minutes
Total 3750 minutes = 62.5 hours
To blast through it all in time we need to watch
42.6 minutes a day or 300 minutes/5 hours a week 34.5 minutes a day, 241.5 minutes or 4 hours a week.
To make that more manageable the credits vary in length between 1.35-1.45 minutes as they do change throughout the season. Assuming we want to watch the opening credits of each season and season 6 episode 10 when the Starks reclaim Winterfell, we can save ourselves 79.65 minutes working on credits at 1.35 minutes. There’s also the option to binge more than one episode a day when the time is available.
So in summary – we need to watch
5 4 hours of Game of Thrones a week to prepare for season 8. Winter has come.
We best get cracking!
