George R.R. Martin Admits He No Longer Watches ‘Game Of Thrones’

George R.R. Martin is a busy man. With international touring, his executive producer role on the super-hit TV show Game of Thrones, and writing the sixth installment in the Song of Ice and Fire novel series, it's understandable that he doesn't have a lot of time for leisure activities like WATCHING HIS OWN SHOW. 

The author reportedly told Metro that he has fallen quite behind:

Technology may be to blame for Martin's falling behind — he reportedly writes his novels on a DOS machine without internet access. 

An HBO streaming subscription might be a bit much for an old soul:

Martin hinted that fans who didn't like Season 7's breakneck pace may enjoy what's going on in the novelized Westeros:

The book series and TV adaptation go their separate ways. On the screen characters are killed right and left. About 20 of them have died already, which are quite alive to me and will appear in a new book.

Martin told Entertainment Weekly he still watches Game of Thrones when he has time, but he's simply fallen a bit behind on Season 7.

After all, as the show's executive producer, Martin knows what's going to happen:

Fans eagerly awaiting Winds of Winter, the next installment in Martin's series, shouldn't get too excited. Though Martin insists he's hard at work, he's not concerned with any particular release date for the book, which was initially slated for 2017. 

Martin believes a good book is more important that how long anyone has to wait for it. In his words:

Age does not add enthusiasm.
