10/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 10 "There is only man who truly deserves to sit on the Iron Throne. That man is director Miguel Sapochnik. I don't care if I'm being reactionary-this was the best episode Game of Thrones has ever done. " ‐ Paste Magazine

8.5/10 98% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 7 "That unrepentant dark bastard George R. R. Martin doesn't play favorites with anyone, but the more I watch this show, the more I think I'm beginning to understand it as a long chronicle of one family's long losing battle with terror and torture and death. " ‐ Paste Magazine

9/10 91% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 6 ""Blood of My Blood" was something a little quieter, a little subtler, and less viscerally dramatic. " ‐ Paste Magazine

9.5/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 5 "Not ashamed to admit the waterworks were just running over here, my friend. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted May 22, 2016
9.4/10 96% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 3 "This was a monster episode, and it was a monster episode because it fulfilled the promise of last week, which was itself a declaration: Things are about to start happening. And in "Oathbreaker..." things happened. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted May 8, 2016
9/10 92% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 2 "This was a great episode, and I think we're at the very end of the "build-up" phase of the show, which you could argue has been ongoing since last year. " ‐ Paste Magazine

9/10 92% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 1 "We needed today to come, and it did. And now that it's come and gone, all I can say is that I want so much more. " ‐ Paste Magazine

9/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 10 "I thought the season finale, "Mhysa," delivered the goods within the context of a show that saves its biggest moments for the second-to-last episode of the year. " ‐ Paste Magazine

9.5/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 9 "It was visceral, it was fast, and it had an odd emotionless quality to it, even as Robb was crawling toward his wife and Catelyn begged for his life. It feels weird to say something so awful was "well done," but man, that was really well done. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Mar 29, 2016
8.8/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 8 "The Game of Thrones writers just served up the third straight slow-drip episode with "Second Sons," and to me, this was the best of the bunch. " ‐ Paste Magazine

7.9/10 81% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 7 "Jaime's return to Harrenhal rescued the episode as much as it did Brienne. And it was all set up by three powerful words, "Goodbye, Sir Jaime." Not "Kingslayer." " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Mar 28, 2016
8.8 90% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 6 "I call this a terrific installment. The very first scene, with Samwise Gamgee-I mean Samwell Tarly-and Craster's girl was the perfect set-up. It was written as a heartwarming little tribute to his kind and somewhat bumbling nature. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Mar 28, 2016
9/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 5 "How great was Jaime's bathtub monologue? What does it say about me that most of my favorite actors are Lannisters? " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Mar 25, 2016
9.2/10 96% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 12 "All credit to The Walking Dead for showing us the compound raid in this episode, and not stretching out the tense preparations for the full hour. This show has insane momentum this half-season, and they somehow managed to amp it up. " ‐ Paste Magazine

9.9/10 97% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 9 "This was peak Walking Dead, and I'm not even sure that's saying enough. It actually may have transcended peak Walking Dead, and pushed our expectations to new heights. " ‐ Paste Magazine

8.3/10 35% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 8 "That was something, huh?! Between Deanna and Jessie, it's hard to say who raised the most screwed-up sons, but Ron and Sam certainly made a great case for themselves in "Start to Finish." " ‐ Paste Magazine

44% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 5 "What a dud. I can't emphasize how much I disliked this episode, and it wasn't just because we never learned Glenn's fate. This was just a classic spinning wheels episode all around. " ‐ Paste Magazine

Posted Nov 2, 2015
8.9/10 97% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 3 "The writers are entertaining the notion that there may be no meaning or purpose, and even considering that outlook makes everything slightly more sophisticated in a show that spends most of its time in the shallow waters, morally speaking. " ‐ Paste Magazine
