69% Lost in Space: Season 1 (TV, 2018) If you're looking for big-hearted sci-fi, which doesn't compromise on the reality of human survival and modern family conflicts... wow, you want something pretty specific. Lost in Space very much fills this niche, though, so fill your boots. ‐ SFX Magazine

4/5 65% Altered Carbon: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Altered Carbon tells a solid story with some great characters. The lavish world is the true star here, and while it's rarely a place any of us would want to live in, it's impossible to stop yourself admiring the way it's constructed.‐ SFX Magazine

4/5 86% Dark: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Compelling, beautifully made TV, which demands a little too much from the viewer to be absolutely essential.‐ SFX Magazine

4/5 95% Game of Thrones: Season 7 (TV, 2017) These seven episodes thrill, shock, and delight in equal measures, but you can't help but feel it'd have been so much stronger with those extra three installments.‐ SFX Magazine

5/5 87% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - The Dragon and the Wolf (TV Episode) "The Dragon and the Wolf" delivers exactly what you'd expect from a show at the top of its game, heading into its final season, making it one of the single best episodes not just of Game of Thrones season 7, but of the series as a whole.‐ SFX Magazine

4/5 80% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Beyond the Wall (TV Episode) Fire and ice. It's what we were promised for Game of Thrones season 7, and the penultimate episode -- "Beyond the Wall" -- delivers it. And oh my, how it delivers it.‐ SFX Magazine

3/5 96% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Eastwatch (TV Episode) The most average of Game of Thrones episodes is still utterly compelling TV, despite not delivering the highs and lows we've so far gorged on in season 7.‐ SFX Magazine

4.5/5 98% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - The Spoils of War (TV Episode) The dragon battle at the climax is a thing to behold, giving viewers the victorious satisfaction they've been waiting for since Daenerys first landed in Westeros.‐ SFX Magazine

4/5 91% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - The Queen's Justice (TV Episode) As pure TV entertainment, Queen's Justice is middling at best... As a narrative designed to subvert the expectations of its viewers and give them pause to truly ponder the nature of the show -- and fantasy TV as a whole - it's a masterclass.‐ SFX Magazine

4.5/5 100% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Stormborn (TV Episode) Stormborn represents Game of Thrones at its brilliant best -- while not quite unpredictable, its showmanship is second to none.‐ SFX Magazine

4.5/5 94% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Dragonstone (TV Episode) Very little actually happens, but it grips viewers from start to finish.‐ SFX Magazine

2.5/5 64% The Man in the High Castle: Season 2 (TV, 2016) Thanks to dull characters and mostly flaccid storylines, it falls short of being essential viewing. It drifts often and at length, too in love with its own wonderfully recreated world to realise that - half the time - it's going nowhere.‐ SFX Magazine

5/5 94% Westworld: Season 1 - The Bicameral Mind (TV Episode) The show isn't about climbing to the top or getting to the end - it's about exploring everything to the very core, about understanding the heart of the narrative itself. And episode 10 - the Bicameral Mind - is the very centre of the season.‐ SFX Magazine

4.5/5 86% Westworld: Season 1 - The Well-Tempered Clavier (TV Episode) This episode of Westworld is different: it's one of dark revelations and tragic answers, of confirmations to theories that we've been turning over in our minds.‐ SFX Magazine

5/5 95% Westworld: Season 1 - Trace Decay (TV Episode) While naysayers criticise... this latest episode... leaves little doubt that the entire season is wonderfully, deliberately crafted, and there are a hell of a lot of incredibly smart things going on.‐ SFX Magazine

5/5 98% Game of Thrones: Season 6 - Battle of the Bastards (TV Episode) In all, Battle of the Bastards is brilliance. It's the crucial 'episode 9' that is meant to be the hottest, most thrilling of the whole season, and it doesn't disappoint. ‐ SFX Magazine

3.5/5 96% Game of Thrones: Season 6 - The Broken Man (TV Episode) The Hound is back! It's a Game of Thrones character return so requested and hyped by fans that HBO couldn't even wait for the opening credits to show us - giddy and excited - that Sandor Clegane lives. ‐ SFX Magazine

2.5/5 91% Game of Thrones: Season 6 - Blood of My Blood (TV Episode) This sets the scene for what's to come, and while pregnant with potential, it's the weakest of season 6 so far.‐ SFX Magazine

4/5 88% Game of Thrones: Season 6 - Home (TV Episode) Make no mistake: season 6 is optimised for its TV audience - the heroes are getting more likeable, the villains more detestable... and it makes for excellent viewing.‐ SFX Magazine

3.5/5 88% Game of Thrones: Season 6 - The Red Woman (TV Episode) It's actually one of the stronger opening episodes of any season.‐ SFX Magazine
