SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS—After years of abstaining from the wildly popular Game of Thrones due to its graphic nature, local man Kyle Schneider decided Thursday that he would allow himself to watch the hit show on one condition: he would skip past any scenes containing nudity or sex. After making the pact with himself, Schneider caught up with the show by binge-watching the first six seasons, and true to his word, skipped all nude scenes, making it through all 60 episodes in just under 20 minutes.
“What a wild show,” the man told reporters after his viewing session. “Both minutes of season one that contained no nudity or sex were pretty crazy! So many plot twists.”
“I’m happy I ended up getting 20 total minutes of viewing time through the first six seasons. At first I thought it would be a lot less than that—hoo boy,” he added.
At publishing time, Schneider had decided that he would also fast-forward past all graphic violence in the series moving forward, effectively leaving himself with just the opening sequence and closing credits.
After skipping all the nude scenes in Game of Thrones, view time remaining was just under 20 minutes! Whoa!
Game of Thrones has evoked controversy and debate in the Christian community since its release. Some have argued that it is tantamount to watching pornography and does not improve the Christian life. John Piper, a famous pastor, has spoken of this and brings down to asking these questions about Game of Thrones while Christians contemplate the decision.
