Game of Thrones 1 through 6

GOT

I haven’t reviewed anything for years now, but I’ve just binge-watched the last five seasons of Game of Thrones, and three days later, I’m still taken aback by what I’ve just seen. Such ridiculously awesome production values, such consistency of quality, such remarkable story-telling across multiple sub-plots and characters. The battle scenes – the final battle in this image above – are unlike anything I’ve ever witnessed on film. Only Lord of the Rings comes close. And frankly this is better. I loved the GoT books, but the tv series has taken the story to a whole other level of visceral pleasure. I cannot wait for Season 7. Breath-taking.
