Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 8

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (2)

Game of Thrones finally finished, the last episode aptly titled The Long Night and it was a terrible ending, disappointing for fans, causing a collective cringe around the globe.

Season 8 reduced characters to caricatures, didn't earn its character development and the shift in their arcs, baked in several plot holes, and did away with internal logic and consistency.

Season eight can be summed up in a phrase - missed opportunities.

July 16, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

The current, final season of HBO's Game of Thrones is swinging and missing on both fronts (the production quality and writing) as a hurried journey toward the finish line is ultimately hurting the series and possibly its legacy.

November 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Some are saying we'll never have TV like Game of Thrones again, but that simply isn't true - it worked, so of course it will be emulated.

December 30, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

There is something courageous about a television series that is brave enough to reimagine Richard III as a hero.

Not the strongest of conclusions leaving more questions than answers, Game of Thrones Season 8 leaves fans and audiences a bit befuddled and skeptical at the direction the stories and characters took in this tumultuous decade. 3.5/5
