After last night’s “Game of Thrones” episode, I heard from a number of readers who said that if Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) dies, they are done with the show. For me as a reader, the much bigger risk is that, as the show gets ahead of the novels on which they’re based, I will not necessarily know when I have to look away from the screen or risk a week’s-worth of nightmares. These worries (and they are just worries; I am not leaving “Game of Thrones” behind) inspire tonight’s question: What makes you quit a piece of pop culture? And how do you know when it is time to go?
