ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Bells’ (Season 8, Episode 5)

“There’s no denying that ‘The Bells’ was a visual feast. You could see the blood, sweat and tears that went into making it, as well as every penny of the none too shabby budget. ” Our Round-Up of the divisive penultimate episode of the show.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Bells’ (Season 8, Episode 5)

ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Last of the Starks’ (Season 8, Episode 4)

“After the storm whipped up by the Night King, ‘The Last of the Starks’ seemed to offer us some much needed respite after such a monumental battle in the North. The characters grieved, they laughed, they drank, they lost their virginity. It was all going relatively well until we realised that Cersei had a chance at winning this war, and what’s more, we’re not sure how we feel about that now that Dany is revealing herself to be a less than worthy ruler.” Our Round-Up of the enjoyable, but jarring 4th episode…… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Last of the Starks’ (Season 8, Episode 4)

ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’ (Season 8, Episode 2)

“For a show that’s set a rip-roaring pace for the last couple of seasons, this character-driven calm before the storm was as surprising as it was welcome. Bryan Cogman has described ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’ as a ‘love letter’ to the characters he cares so much about, and there doesn’t seem like a more fitting description.” Our round-up of the excellent second episode. … Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’ (Season 8, Episode 2)

ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Queen’s Justice’ (Season 7, Episode 3)

“With Weiss and Benioff back in the driving seat as scriptwriters, Thrones┬áreturned to form with punchy, gut-wrenching and sometimes raucously funny dialogue in ‘The Queen’s Justice’. Likewise, the various storylines from one end of Westeros to the other slotted together neatly, adding to the impending sense that the pieces of the puzzle are all coming together, as some of the main players begin to turn their attentions to the real threat: the Night King and his army.” Our Round-Up of the ‘punchy’ third episode.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Queen’s Justice’ (Season 7, Episode 3)

ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘Stormborn’ (Season 7, Episode 2)

“Admittedly much improved on a second viewing, ‘Stormborn’ still had pacing issues which overall made the episode rather clunky. Nevertheless, there was plenty to chew on as various reunions were set up for the coming weeks, and clever callbacks reminded us of the journey we’ve been on with this show and its characters, and how far we still have to go.” Our Round-Up of the solid second episode. … Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘Stormborn’ (Season 7, Episode 2)
