Eat lunch with the Walking Dead fans instead...?
I was surprised how much I could bluff my way through conversations about Breaking Bad at work. Never seen one episode.
Just tell them that it's not as good as the previous seasons, and that if they still like it then THEY are not the real fans.
It ISN'T as good as previous seasons, but that doesn't mean they're not fans, it just means they like crap things.
Am I the only one who genuinely feels bad for this guy?
Bad for him, AND for all his coworkers. Who are probably all in that very same situation (which he contributes to maintain).
No one actually likes Game of Thrones
