Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones Season 5

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (27)

Many shows are starting to run out of gas by Season 5. Game of Thrones, partly because it's as cold-blooded as its characters in treating personnel turnover as the natural order, seems to have little trouble keeping its pedal to the metal.

Apr 2, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

No, Season 5 of Game of Thrones won't be a joy ride. But it's sure to be a thrill ride.

Apr 13, 2015 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

"Game of Thrones" is also looking to expand our understanding of these characters and their psychology in a deeper and more complex way, which is exactly where we kick off the season.

Apr 13, 2015 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Given the issues of pace and focus that bedevil Martin's later novels, Benioff and Weiss's impulse to both compress and juice up the material makes eminent sense. The result is a season of Game of Thrones that promises to be bigger than ever.

Apr 11, 2015 | Full Review…

Both my inner fan and inner critic agree: The fifth season is superb.

Season 5 of Game of Thrones pulls even further away from the novels (the Sansa plot will drive some fans crazier than King Aerys) and I'm fairly sure it's better for it.

Apr 9, 2015 | Full Review…

Yes, we may be so far up to our neck with denial we can't see straight, but hey, we like it here.

Jan 2, 2020 | Full Review…

Beginners, forget it. Loyal fans, however, will be overjoyed.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Season 5 of Game of Thrones boasts some of the series' best surprises, particularly as storylines converge and start to wrap inward

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

This really is such a rich, satisfying, fantastically put together series, isn't it?

Apr 8, 2015 | Full Review…

It's a lot to digest, but well worth the effort.

Apr 14, 2015 | Full Review…

Season 5 doesn't feel like more of the same; it feels like a Game of Thrones played at a new, more intense level.

Audience Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 5

  • 4d ago
    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
    again a masterpiece, but a boring one.
  • Apr 22, 2020
    wait what? even better than s4
  • Apr 22, 2020
    واحد من افضل المواسم في المسلسل مع تدفق احداث ثابت
  • Apr 21, 2020
    Even if u hated the ending this is by far the greatest show of all time. Each episode keeps u on the edge of your seat. Never have i ever heard as many people talk about whats gunna happen next week. There was just a lot of people upset because they didn't get what they want but that is what the whole show was, you never got what u want.
  • Mar 21, 2020
    Wow that cliff hanger has struck my head too hard!what an amazing season at first i thought the show lost its essences yet great ending episodes!
  • Mar 15, 2020
    Exceptional depth and brilliance. A world of such vast imagination and unrivaled storytelling with an achievement in visuals never before seen in television. 9.6/10
  • Feb 29, 2020
    This season was great. I loved Margaery and Arya and Tyrion. Dany was starting to get a bit annoying for me but it fit with her character. Cersei is starting to decline. The ending of this season is completely shocking and reveals a lot about Cersei. In a messed up way it made you root for a child killing themselves because everything Cersei did was to protect her children and now her actions are what caused their deaths. This season really emphasized on Cersei's character and revealed a lot more about her. Overall just a great season.
  • Jan 22, 2020
    best, it was really good, i enjoyed it. please give us no2 etc asap. as I WANT MORE !!!!
  • Jan 05, 2020
    Let's say that the writer have lost their way (probably just lost Martin's ideas) and they are saved by the characters appeal.
