Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones Season 5

All Critics (50) | Top Critics (26)

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…

Essentially, this was an exercise in scene setting, the chess pieces being laid out on the board.

Mar 20, 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.

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.

Audience Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 5

This season contains the single greatest television episode of all time. Episode 8: Hardhome. Watch it!

Such a powerful season.

GoT 5th season was full of surprises. Great stories. The House of Black and White is one not to missed. Jon Snow is starting to be noticed as a leader.

the show just gets better and better

better than later seasons

Season 5 has great storytelling but is ruined by subplots like Dorne.

Barely anything of note happens in this season, and it culminates to a very boring finale.

All wonderful, just these sandsnakes... could have been wonderful, just please don't try selling me these girls as badasses

Sand snakes and mom paramour casting is found wanting.

Its all downhill from here. Massive drop in quality
