It's finally back - in all its gory grandeur.

Game of Thrones is finally off book, having lapped George R.R. Martin's slowly gestating A Song of Ice and Fire series. Finally, it seemed, anything could happen.

The big news was that the lavish Game of Thrones returned to play by its own rules. Many other shows pander for fans' affection and take easy storytelling routes.

Honestly, I loved it. Everything felt like the progression of what had come before and nothing was overly rushed.

Well that was a busy hour, leaping from place to place to catch us up with the Game of Thrones gang and set the stage for the sixth season... But fun was afoot.

Game of Thrones delivers where it matters. Entertaining, emotional and shocking, all our game players have been tested and their true colours have been revealed.

Jul 16, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Occasionally casting logic aside, season six of Game of Thrones succeeds at being good television.

Oct 31, 2018 | Full Review…

[It's] a solid stretch of narrative setup and motion when you gulp it down in a sitting or three.

Oct 12, 2018 | Full Review…

The characters evolve, of course, but it is this loyalty to the stubbornness of their decisions that keeps fiction standing and makes the plot complex. [Full Review in Spanish]

Game of Thrones continues to break molds. It's tough to say if it's the best show on television right now, but it certainly has more merits to help it earn that crown. [Full Review in Spanish]

There were various ingredients this season yes, but they moved along in symphony setting up the clear objective: this is the end. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 6

  • Nov 14, 2020
    The best show ever by far, and for me it's the best season so far, it's just spectacular !!!
  • Nov 05, 2020
    Masterpiece. It contains one of the best episodes of all times: Battle of Bastards.
  • Sep 26, 2020
    As soon as they departed from the books, it all started to go downhill.
  • Sep 20, 2020
    Go read the books instead.

    Game of Thrones Season 6 | Detailed note: 9.6
  • Jul 05, 2020
    Game of Thrones remains a masterpiece, as always !!! Best Serie ever!!!
  • May 23, 2020
    Most overrated show of all time I was waiting for some character or even just some welly filmed action but never got either in all of these seasons
  • May 15, 2020
    best season in the series by far. however, it lead the franchise down a path it will never truly recover from
  • Apr 28, 2020
    Battle of the Bastards is the most thrilling on screen (whether in a movie or TV show) war that I have ever seen. Ramsay Bolton is such a despised villain that there is a large sense of satisfaction when Sansa kills him in the most fitting way.
  • Apr 25, 2020
    Perfect season of all seasons. Because it will be a delightful for all daenary's fans but not for jon snow's fans.
