The 3rd season has more flaws that the first two, writers have said in the past that it wasn't really planned to have more than two seasons, and at times it shows, the new characters aren't as interesting as the original ones and some of them even feel like a copy of the ones that died in the first robbery. Nevertheless it's still a very entertaining season.
This might just be the most disappointing ending you'll ever experience, so in that regard you're set for life, now even if a show/movie disappoints, it won't be as bad as S8. It comes down to the end and after butchering several of the most important character arcs (Dany, Jon, Jaime, Cersei) Tyrion says the person with the best story is Bran... this show should be remembered with a brutal cliffhanger as its final episode and at its peak (The Winds of Winter), the rest just ruined one of the best dramas in TV history.
The 2nd season doesn't miss a beat, aside from a couple episodes that I personally liked but didn't love. The cast for the first two seasons will be missed. The chemistry between Claire Foy (well deserved Emmy for her performance) and Matt Smith, with Vanessa Kirby will be hard to emulate.
Though reluctant at first because of my lack of interest in the royal family, I decided to give The Crown a try, and let me tell you, you should too. With top notch performances by its leads, The Crown's first season deserves 5 stars.
The Haunting of Hill House is great. It combines good horror with a compelling story in ways very few horror movies/shows do nowadays. Oh and by the way "If I go, I'm goin' " to end the show was absolutely perfect.
The third season takes a major step back, the last few episodes this seems entirely like a marital drama. Sure their relationship has always been key to the show but here they start to act like children without any sense, they are not the powerful couple we saw in S1 but the problem isn't there, it's the reason behind it, it feels entirely like the sole reason they are fighting each other is to give the show something to rely on, and that plot isn't nearly as good as the previous two seasons.
Kevin Spacey breaking the 4th wall is just brilliant. And sooner rather than later you realize the Underwoods aren't your ordinary couple.
Game of Thrones' 1st season might feel a little confusing with all the complex characters and storylines that it throws at us from the start but we fell in love with the show from the very first episode. S1 also makes it very clear this wasn't the typical show where main characters wouldn't pay the price for their mistakes, and even though it left us heartbroken I'm pretty sure we all appreciated that.
S7 has some plotholes, but its main issue has to do with the villain, Game Of Thrones is a show that doesn't give you the typical good guy/bad guy story, all the main characters have flaws and virtues. But the Night King / White Walkers look like nothing more than our typical villain who are evil without any reason. They don't have nearly as much character development as all the other characters. Even with all that, Game Of Thrones S7 still does a great job continuing its main characters' arcs to set everything up for what hopefully is gonna be an epic final season next year.
