49% Game of Thrones: Season 8 - The Iron Throne (TV Episode) This ending isn't satisfying... But "The Iron Throne" does represent both the good and the bad of this series. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

49% Game of Thrones: Season 8 - The Bells (TV Episode) As a technical piece of filmmaking... "The Bells" is a masterpiece. As the culmination of the arcs of some of the show's most important characters, it is, if not a complete failure, then certainly a true disappointment. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

58% Game of Thrones: Season 8 - The Last of the Starks (TV Episode) It's an episode filled with plenty of fine pieces that don't always fit together. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

74% Game of Thrones: Season 8 - The Long Night (TV Episode) "The Long Night" can't help but feel like something of a disappointment. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

88% Game of Thrones: Season 8 - A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (TV Episode) [It] takes the time to wonder what the world looks like after the game ends, to mark how long the journey has been, and to question how clear the picture of what's to come can look through that frosted glass. It's all the better for it. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

92% Game of Thrones: Season 8 - Winterfell (TV Episode) "Winterfell" is, thankfully, a more deliberate but still exciting introduction to Game of Thrones' final bow, one aimed squarely at the horde of the undead on the move, but also on the tenuous tapestry of alliances woven together at Winterfell. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

No Score Yet King of the Hill: Season 5 (TV, 1997-2010) King of the Hill always knew how to couch its stories in a unique combination of the ridiculous and the relatable, which helped its narratives land and its comedy soar. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

100% The Wire: Season 4 (TV, 2002-2008) The only thing harder to take in season four than the paths that these kids are set on is the realization that so many of them, and so many like them, never stood a chance in the first place. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

64% Archer: Danger Island (TV, 2009) The folks behind Archer are rightly confident in their ability to meld the show's sensibilities to these new environs. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

No Score Yet Bob's Burgers: Season 8 (TV, 2011) We can expect Bob's Burgers to return to the Jimmy Jr. well again sometime soon, but for one episode, it's nice to have Tina find her happiness in her family and new friends, rather than in a beau whose affections are as shaky as his dance moves. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

100% The Good Place: Season 2 (TV, 2016) The Good Place burned through more plot in 13 episodes than most shows do in their entire run. But that's a virtue, not a vice. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

82% Star Trek: Discovery: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Still, Discovery ends its first season having earned the Star Trek prefix in its title. The show feels much as it did after its season premiere - as a series with more potential than proof - but also one with nigh-limitless, intriguing possibilities ahead - Consequence of Sound EDIT

87% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - The Dragon and the Wolf (TV Episode) Despite some intense moments when a wight is let loose and stops inches away from Cersei, the scene as a whole plays as too stiff and practiced. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

84% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Beyond the Wall (TV Episode) Game of Thrones is a show that makes its bones on big moments but it's one that gets it meaning, its worth, from the smaller interactions that give us a reason to care about the individuals rising and falling amid these intricate schemes and bloody ends. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

95% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Eastwatch (TV Episode) Let's be honest, as much as Game of Thrones endeavors to justify these unions in storytelling terms, at a basic level, it's just exciting to see characters we've come to know and care about face one another for the first time in a long time. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

97% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - The Spoils of War (TV Episode) Game of Thrones likes to have its cake and eat it, too, especially when it comes to war and its wide-ranging consequences. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

89% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - The Queen's Justice (TV Episode) That is the call and response of Game of Thrones. Fortunes change on the battlefield. The embodiments of ice and fire meet face to face. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

96% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Stormborn (TV Episode) It's the usual Game of Thrones spate of murder and mayhem - often chaotic, always brutal, and full of chills and spills both exciting and empty. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

93% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Dragonstone (TV Episode) It's the type of scene we see far too little of in Game of Thrones as the series approaches its endgame. It doesn't advance the plot. It doesn't give us any new details about political snarls or the advancing undead. It simply elucidates. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

96% Rick and Morty: Season 3 (TV, 2013-2017) There are few shows on television with such a commitment to mind-bending storytelling and madcap left turns all over like Rick and Morty. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
