Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones Season 7

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (20)

The season premiere of Game of Thrones was thoroughly satisfying, a transporting hour that brilliantly reestablished the chessboard for the new, penultimate season.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

So far, this looks like a wonderful season for the female characters.

Jul 16, 2017 | Full Review…

Game of Thrones, as always, leaves us conflicted and confused. It remains a show that hates the weak, but loves its small victories. It is the most delicious of cheeseburgers, but also hard to evaluate without seeing more.

Jul 16, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Gorgeous season flawed by some serious narrative missteps. GoT is no longer bulletproof, or dragon proof.

Top Critic

Thus far, Game of Thrones has been pretty enjoyable this summer. Lots of intense action and rousing spectacle. Breathtaking dragons.

Aug 18, 2017 | Full Review…

There's a real sense that these producers have figured out how to tell this story.

Top Critic

The showrunners are wholly loosed... Free to run wild to the ultimate, constrained only by the levels of glee, cliffhangerdom, betrayal, dragonglass, mask magic, vomitus, faeces, gore and glory they feel they can reasonably stuff behind our eyeballs.

Jul 24, 2017 | Full Review…

While I found "Dragonstone" to be completely engaging, I was expecting a bit more action. It's evident the writers decided to go with the slow build. I take that to mean the remaining six episodes of this season should be quite the feast.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

At long last, Game of Thrones is back. The HBO drama opened its seventh season with an unexpected but satisfying bit of revenge and then pulled back to take the temperature of our core players.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Every single episode in this season felt like it was integral to the overall storyline and everyone felt like they were being used to their fullest potential.

Audience Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 7

  • Sep 09, 2019
    Season 7, while still really great and enjoyable television, had a lot of things that took viewers out of the escapism. It had things that made no sense with the logistics that they has already set up in the world. This season is still pretty solid in terms of quality, and definitely a pretty good fantasy adaptation, but a lot of the major problems from season 8 were foreshadowed here.
  • Sep 07, 2019
    It was good, but too short and was definitely lacking something all the previous seasons had.
  • Sep 06, 2019
    Overall this was a good season, although it was easily the weakest Thrones had to offer at the time.
  • Sep 05, 2019
    I'm just shocked at how people brought the crap that Season 7 put out. Perhaps it wasn't noticeable enough because Season 6 didn't go as badly as Season 5 did, but holy sh** was Season 7 a mess.
  • Aug 20, 2019
    It is clear that the writing has suffered from not being adapted from the books and certain characters seem to be losing certain logic. But, it does feel like everything is coming together and the final two episodes, albeit rushed, were immensely enjoyable.
  • Aug 12, 2019
    Logic has left the building in game of thrones, characters "teleport" and the season feels rushed, there are episodes like 1,2,3 and 4 that are very well done and then there's episode 6 that has absolutely no logic, the final episode is ok with a promising ending and characters are back to normal-ish with vile villains and heroic heroes and the normal twists and turns you should expect from game of thrones.
  • Aug 12, 2019
    The story's Third Act begins here (and the pace is accordingly accelerated) with its many story lines and characters converging towards a climax. Every episode was wonderful, especially 4 (one of the best of the show) and 7, with 5 being the only one that jarred a little as the story moves noticeably swifter (still a great episode). I loved it.
  • Aug 03, 2019
    Season 7 did not live up to the expected standard. It was clear the writing was struggling to maintain it's previous levels of pace, logic and character development. I thought I'd give the falling standard of the writing the benefit of the doubt, that there were a lot of characters to get into position for the end game so maybe everything had to be rushed in Season 7 to bring the show to a satisfying conclusion in Season 8. Instead it was just another Lost.
  • Aug 02, 2019
    Still good, but you really start to see the writing deteriorate in a few of the episodes near the end of this season when they had completely exhausted the exiting source material (the book series is unfinished). The Wight Hunt episode is a particularly great example of how D.B. Weiss and David Benioff can't write for shit.
  • Jul 24, 2019
    The series was rushed in my opinion. Overall, satisfactory rating
