And now, you can get paid for your TV escapism. is looking to pay one lucky viewer $2,000 to watch 40 hours worth of popular fantasy shows over 30 days, including all available episodes of “House of the Dragon” and “The Rings of Power,” as well as select episodes from “Game of Thrones” and “The Witcher.” If journeying from Westeros to the Shire from the comfort of your couch sounds like a dream gig, this is the job for you.

While watching, the winner will be asked to rate the following on a provided task sheet: The creativity of the show’s world, the believability of the characters, the overall uniqueness of the plot, difficulty understanding the show or keeping up with its characters, and a final ranking of the best show among the four.
