T-Meter Title | Year
96% Game of Thrones: Season 4 - Breaker of Chains (TV Episode) The whole episode had a morning-after-the-night-before feel, shocked and raw and tender. But it had a few moments of its own. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

77% Game of Thrones: Season 3 - The Bear and the Maiden Fair (TV Episode) It's still a powerful programme, and it's rare that it wastes a scene.

100% Game of Thrones: Season 2 - The North Remembers (TV Episode) The biggest name may be gone, but the GoT formula of political intrigue, beautiful people and scenery, enthusiastic sex and unflinching brutality is still very much in place. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

86% Game of Thrones: Season 1 - Lord Snow (TV Episode) The plot is not so much thickening as entangling like weeds around itself. And none of the many strands feel as though they are going to end well. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT
