Inconsistent, but overall very strong
13 May 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It's a funny thing with adaptations, you can never properly judge the people handling the adaptation unless they stray from the source material. Once that happens, depending both on the writing talent, and the quality of the original work, the adaptation could go in several directions.

It seems that this season has gone the way of almost total inconsistency. By that I'll use an example from this season. WHAT IS DEAD MAY NEVER DIE (03) was a terrific episode, perhaps one of the best in the series, and it was followed by GARDEN OF BONES (04) which is pretty mediocre.

It's clear, then, that as the writers stray from the source material (and they do, rather substantially, in the second half of the season) their mediocre talents stand out among the source material's already high quality.

The season started off quite well, however, with the first three episodes being quite strong, but then some perplexing adaptation choices and poor writing made the middle of the season quite mediocre. It did pick up again, but then the finale was an hour of anti-climaxes and half-climaxes, failing to do what the season one finale succeeded in: tying up loose ends with emotional momentum, rounding off character arcs, and setting up for the next season.

Best Episode: What Is Dead May Never Die (03) Best Actor: Alfie Allen
