Ahead of tonight’s season five premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones, the first four episodes have been leaked. Thousands of people have already downloaded and shared the episodes, and all of a sudden the rest of us are behind in Game of Thrones before it even started.
So now, we’re faced with a choice. Do we wait and watch the episodes as they’re aired on HBO, while risking that someone at work has seen the episodes and might let something slip? Or do we put on our pirate hats in an effort to avoid having the season spoiled? In the age of Netflix and House of Cards binge watching, can we force ourselves to wait and watch one episode a week, or is the temptation to see as much as we can at once overrule our morality?
What will you do?
