It's finally back - in all its gory grandeur.

April 24, 2016 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Game of Thrones is finally off book, having lapped George R.R. Martin's slowly gestating A Song of Ice and Fire series. Finally, it seemed, anything could happen.

Top Critic

The big news was that the lavish Game of Thrones returned to play by its own rules. Many other shows pander for fans' affection and take easy storytelling routes.

Honestly, I loved it. Everything felt like the progression of what had come before and nothing was overly rushed.

April 25, 2016 | Full Review…

Well that was a busy hour, leaping from place to place to catch us up with the Game of Thrones gang and set the stage for the sixth season... But fun was afoot.

Audience Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 6


It breaks free from the source material, there were some good input but other decisions were questionable.


Super Reviewer


Driven by its undaunted drama, bloody-epic sequences and mysticism Game of Thrones Season 6 rises back up from its slump. The acclaimed series continues (and this time, with unknown factors of its unpublished canon) with sheer complexity and allure making for one its most revered seasons in the series. 4.5/5


Super Reviewer

Some interesting plot points, but not the best. The best seasons are behind them now
