Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 3

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (20)

For season three, there was no other way to end. After The Red Wedding, an event so monumentally brutal that it instantly became one of the cornerstones of this show's very legacy, the only way to go would be softer, quieter, warmer.

Film School Rejects

"Game of Thrones: Season 3″ is the most challenging and the most rewarding of the seasons so far, and the Blu-ray/DVD combo available now does it justice.

Despite the sense of going over much familiar ground, the season ends powerfully, its penultimate episode being the strongest single hour in its run so far.

The most well realized and polished Season so far (which is saying a lot, since what came before was already excellent), this is an unbelievable game changer at every turn. Most people will remember this Season because of the infamous Episode 09 but everything before and after is brilliant, showcasing the talent at everyone involved in this show.

As a book reader of A Song Of Ice And Fire, I can tell you with confidence that the next Season is gonna top this one, easily. Is that even possible? You bet.

Season 3 lived up to the standard of previous seasons but had a focus on shock values (pretty predictable really). Each episode had really great quality and didn't feel like they were dragging the show on.

Not as strong as the seasons either side of it, but still some of the best viewing on television.
