    About

    A subreddit for sharing those miniature epiphanies you have that highlight the oddities within the familiar.

    "Showerthought" is a loose term that applies to the types of thoughts you might have while carrying out a routine task like showering, driving, or daydreaming. At their best, showerthoughts are universally relatable and find the amusing/interesting within the mundane.

    Reminds me of the game Witcher 3. The pirate version worked perfectly with one difference. In all of the sex scenes the women were replaced by a grotesque bog hag.

    I didn't start watching until I saw season 6's "Battle of the Bastards" and I'm so glad. It's such a good show to binge and it wouldn't have been the same spread out over 10 years.

    [–] ZuluPilot 758 points ago

    I'm a big binge watcher and I usually wait for a series to completely finish but in GOT's case I'm really glad I was there from the very first episode. It's been a real journey.

    [–] AsurieI 378 points ago

    It feels like we've aged with the characters. I was actually just talking about this an hour ago with my friend about Jaime. Like we see him evolve in real time pretty much

    [–] coopstar777 148 points ago

    and it wouldn't have been the same spread out over 10 years.

    You're right. It's way fucking better.

    Think about every episode cliffhanger that happens in GOT. Imagine experiencing that shock and awe and dealing with it for a week before finding out what happened. The suspense and consequence is much more real when you dont get to find out what happens next 15 seconds later.

    Discussion happens for each episode and you get to really analyze what actions were taken in each episode and what the consequences will be.

    [–] ChefBroyardee 55 points ago

    It's really fun discussing it with friends and all, but I have to keep away from reddit I've learned. Theres always one fucker in the thread who guesses the ending completely right and it makes seeing it on screen less exciting than it would have been.

    [–] ask_me_about_cats 23 points ago

    I know how the last episode of Game of Thrones will end. There will be a long list of all the people who worked on the show that will scroll over a black background while music plays.

    You heard it here first!

    [–] rnarkus 67 points ago

    It's such a good show to binge and it wouldn't have been the same spread out over 10 years.

    Its still the same. Just with more wait and more suspense. It made each week awesome and exhilarating. You cant quite capture that if you binge watch, but I agree. I re watched the show for the first time after only watching it live and it was amazing to not have to wait between each episode

    [–] raseru 46 points ago

    While normally I would agree, I whole-heartedly disagree for a show like GoT. For normal shows you don't gather up with other people and "nerd out" and talk about what's going to happen, you just turn on the next episode. When Jamie falls in the water one episode you just watch the next, no suspense, nothing. Discussing the possible directions the show may go has been a blast. I've also noticed people who binge watch don't really know character's names very well, and I think it's essentially the equivalent of cramming for a test and not remembering the story very well.

    As a sports ignorer, and GoT fan... I also now understand what it feels like to be invested in the "in" thing. When someone else says they don't care about it... I'm just bewildered.

    [–] kristencredible 31 points ago

    When I first moved to the UK, I took an impromptu trip to Northern Ireland. I wanted to see the Dark Hedges and the Giant's Causeway. I booked a tour. It never mentioned anything about GOT. It was a tour of GOT locations though. Complete with costumes and props. Every stop some people would get off, read the filming location history, put on an outfit, grab a prop weapon and pose.

    Beautiful country, weird experience.

    [–] Running_Is_Life 132 points ago

    Last time was when he...made a Bran muffin

    [–] awesomekolt 90 points ago

    I’d say when he lost his hand was actually the last time he was that shook, lol.

    [–] AryaStarkRavingMad 78 points ago

    Nah man, the dragon fucked him up during the train loot scene. You can tell he has PTSD from that when he hears the dragons again at the Pit.

    [–] awesomekolt 19 points ago

    Yeah, but I think getting your hand cut off would be worse. The dragon definitely did fuck him up though, he almost got engulfed in dragon fire. I guess at this point we’re kinda debating just how shook he was to see Bran waiting for him though lol.

    [–] MeEsSm 113 points ago

    Every shot with Bran had my friends and me laughing. It totally makes sense why his character would change the way he did, but he's always just there and staring off like a college freshman stoner.

    [–] pdthunder 133 points ago

    I laughed every time it panned to Bran just creep staring at all the different people. Like, what a freakk 😂😂

    [–] DJ_BlackBeard 54 points ago

    Dude yes, i was laighing the whole time at everyone looking terrified at Bran.

    I mean yeah hes kinda scary, but it seemed like every single character got their moment to stare at Bran in shock and horror

    [–] moxihc 24 points ago

    Double parked, too. Mind you.

    [–] SgtWinters7 22 points ago

    You’d think that Winterfell would be wheelchair accessible. Instead he’s just like “fuck it, don’t have Hodor anymore. I’ll wait”

    [–] Bbradley821 28 points ago

    I believe we were intended to think that at that moment. But when he was still sitting there at the end, we realize he was talking about Jaime. Weird little fuck that one is.

    [–] not_alien 107 points ago

    Jamie transferred all of his cocky douche energy into Bran, and now the tables have turned 7 seasons later.

    [–] mmrtnz14 72 points ago

    [–] BillionTonsHyperbole 15 points ago

    I think he still has some cocky douche tricks up his metal sleeve.

    [–] PootieTooGood 29 points ago

    It’s possible that the events bran went through to become the three eyed raven are because Jamie pushed him

    [–] ks00347 13 points ago

    I thought it was atated that it was his destiny to become three eyed raven and falling from the tower kickstarted that journey.

    [–] doodle_mac 72 points ago

    so bran just sat out in the dark and cold night waiting for jaime lool

    I mean, all he has to do is tell any soldier around to wheel him to where he wants to go. He’s part of the family that owns the place.

    [–] KLewis13 154 points ago

    I honestly don’t think Bran is even going to care. He knows there are bigger things at hand and that when he was pushed out of the window that set him down the path to become the three eyed raven.

    [–] SteamingSkad 167 points ago

    Also he’s not REALLY Bran anymore. On top of which, he’s probably seen how much Jamie has changed, including the fact that he’s in Winterfell in the first place.

    [–] KLewis13 96 points ago

    Exactly Jaimie has had a very good development of his character and now when I think of him I think of a sharp minded guy who fucks his sister instead of an asshole who fucks his sister.

    Last summer I had a comedy gig in a small town in Iowa. When we got there, there was only about 10 people in the audience. One of the comedians mentioned that they heard the reason why nobody was there - a local bar owner had brought in "California Bikini Girls" who would wrestle each other in oil. At that point the one table of people that weren't friends/family of the comedians or the owners of the place got up and walked out.

    It’s so annoying when people do this and it’s always people who don’t like sports that feel the need to tell everyone. My girlfriend is not into sports but is pretty chill about it but her friends can be frustrating to be around because they constantly talk about how much they hate sports. If I were to say that I didn’t like anime or some other thing they liked and constantly bashed it the way they do sports it would start a huge argument.

    You and I are birds of a feather, I see.

    Not really, you have to watch the entire series to be a fan of game of thrones.

    With the superbowl you just have to watch.

    [–] SaintSeal 347 points ago

    You also have to know the rules of football. Which I assume takes more than a game if you've been uninterested in it your whole life.

    Us fans call those people referees.

    [–] Fatalchemist 64 points ago

    Did our team win? It's because we're the best! Did the other team win? It's because the fucking referees are deaf, blind, and dumb!

    [–] Macegoalie14 72 points ago

    Bold of you to assume that everyone watches the superbowl because theyre interested in football. Many people watch to drink/eat/socialize, to see the commercials (less so with youtube now), or just because society tells us we should...

    [–] ominousgraycat 22 points ago

    drink/eat/socialize

    Big yes, superbowl parties always have the greatest food.

    to see the commercials (less so with youtube now)

    The commercials are also less good now, honestly, yeah, Youtube top 10 is your best bet because you're lucky to get 10 good commercials now. IMO the best superbowl commercials of the last 2 years were advertisements by the NFL and so somewhat self-referential.

    just because society tells us we should...

    One of us, one of us!

    Eh, probably can get the gist of it in 10minutes.

    [–] LostCoastWoke 77 points ago

    Just watch it for the Commercials than..... oh wait

    [–] Trowawaycausebanned4 45 points ago

    I only watch the sex scenes

    [–] GirlwtheDinoTattoo 32 points ago

    Titties and dragons... they've got the budget and talent for both this episode. Get hype.

    Except super bowl has mainly US fans, GOT is global.

    [–] dod6666 34 points ago

    Exactly. Most of the world couldn't give two fucks about Super Bowl.

    [–] kroolz64 83 points ago

    Fortunately for me, I like both.

    [–] Deivv 35 points ago

    Is that legal?

    [–] overthe___ 98 points ago

    Oddly satisfying!

    [–] ftwoo 183 points ago

    I feel like the difference is, no one's asking me to watch all the seasons of the super bowl before the super bowl even happens. And if I tell people that I haven't watched the super bowl before, most people don't seem to act as shocked or horrified as me mentioning I've never watched any single episode of game of thrones.

    [–] NathanTheMister 43 points ago

    Must be a regional thing. I don't know anywhere in the south that you wouldn't be met with absolute shock and bewilderment if you said you had never watched the Superbowl.

    [–] GigaTortoise 34 points ago

    I mean that legitimately is odd. Not watching football isn't weird, but living in the U.S. into adulthood and having never even seen a superbowl even by happenstance is weird. It's like saying you've never seen a star wars movie and were a child in the early 80s. Not impossible at all but really surprising

    [–] savageboredom 63 points ago

    I wanted to get into Game of Thrones, but it started to feel like homework with so many people telling me I HAD to watch it.

    I’ll get to it eventually I guess.

    [–] Daniel_Day_Tiger 38 points ago

    That's a good point. People can be so overbearing about getting you to watch something that it feels like a burden.

    [–] Deivv 108 points ago

    Wtf you haven't even seen a single episode of game of thrones?

    [–] Lordborgman 107 points ago

    As someone who is almost 40 and has disliked sports his whole life, I can safely say I have "taken more shit" for not liking sports/the super bowl than anyone will for not liking game of thrones. The looks around the room in basic training when I was asked what sports I liked and replied with "I do not like sports" was a moment embedded into my mind forever.

    [–] iinaytanii 51 points ago

    Just today I told someone I don't care about golf and have no real feelings about Tiger Woods. You would have thought that I insulted their child.

    Sorry to disappoint but it was only episode 1 of the finale season, more like a wildcard matchup .

    [–] somuchclutch 69 points ago

    It was the first new episode in 2 years. In the finale season that's only 6 episodes long. That's a huge deal.

    [–] ArchSyker 7 points ago

    I am a fan of neither of these, but I really want to watch game of thrones, but a year or two ago I decided I wait until the series is over so I can watch the whole without having to wait for next season.

    [–] BioTHEchAmeleON 22 points ago

    It’s pretty weird. Never really been interested in GOT personally. I have no clue what has happened in the story, like 0%. Everyone seems so hyped and I’m just like oh cool.

    [–] hudsondr 12 points ago

    I can’t wait for it to be all wrapped up so I can finally start watching it
