If you haven't been watching Game of Thrones — or if you have but understandably haven't been able to keep up with everything — don't worry. Samuel L. Jackson (yep, that Samuel L. Jackson) is here to recap the last few seasons in a concise, expletive-laden, and incredibly entertaining explainer. 

In "Game of Thrones Beginner’s Guide: Uncensored," which was posted to HBO's YouTube page, Jackson narrates a video recapping much of what's gone down in Westeros in his signature, distinct voice (and his penchant for swearing). It's just under eight minutes and provides a great refresher for the series — you'll definitely want to revisit it before the new season starts.
