Did You Know?


While this is the first episode to show Tyrion speaking High Valyrian, it was implied earlier in Game of Thrones: High Sparrow (2015) that he had some understanding of the language, as he was able to understand portions of the Red Priestess' sermon in Valyrian. See more »


When Theon kills Myranda and he and Sansa escape Winterfell, Sansa's gloves disappear in several shots only for them to appear again seconds later, although it is a fast-paced scene with no intervals. See more »

Season 5 A Choppy/Sloppy Mess
15 June 2015 | by feet_onthegroundSee all my reviews

Unlike so many prone to sing praises of GOT this season, I completely disagree. Many times during this season I questioned why I was bothering to watch this show. My sense was that it was mainly because of it's better past and hoping for some return to former glory or some kind of redemption for sucking away so much of my time and energy. The writing this season many times left me feeling that the writers really didn't want to do the show anymore. Story lines grew weak and characters grew flat. There were a few places that it lived up to expectations based on past success but for the most part this season and most of all this finale were sub par.

I have not read the books. And while I didn't care for some of the directions that story lines took, all of that could have been overcome by better writing. Granted based on past success there was a lot to live up to, but this season the writers did a very poor job. If I decide to watch next season at all, it will be after it is over so I don't waste time wondering what will happen. Based on this season it would be constant disappointment.
