    My season rankings:
    1>2>4>3>6>5>7>8

    I don’t feel the show had a singular great season. But I do think the second half of season one was its peak. Seasons five and six were overall messes. But each had a couple of top tier episodes and enough powerful moments. Seasons seven and eight were just taped together spectacles. But at least season seven was only half nonsensical and featured “The Spoils of War”, which is a top ten episode for me. Season eight didn’t do anything for me outside of initiating some eye rolls and making me appreciate Clarke more.

    What made season 2 and 4 better than season 3 for you? All had flaws, but the dialogue for example was at its sharpest in season 3.

    I thought Bran’s and Dany’s arc in season 3 (outside of getting her Unsullied) was mostly a bore. The finale I though was incredibly dull. And the first half of the season was mostly drab. Season 2 had probably the most consistent dialogue and overall writing of any season. And season 4 might have been the most consistently entertaining season. I’m also not as big of a fan of “The Rains of Castamere” as some, though its power is undeniable.

    Some of the early season 2 dialogue was actually poor though. I remember the scene with Sansa in the throne room which was very poorly done. In comparison, early season 3 had some of the most well-written passages in the entire show (all of the Tyrell scenes, Varys telling Tyrion the story about the sorcerer etc). I agree that the Yunkai scenes weren’t great, but neither was Daenerys’ entire Qarth storyline. I understand that ‘The Rains of Castamere’ has to land for viewers to find that season great though.

    Every season of GoT has some clunky dialogue and more clunkier episodes. It’s more a matter of which seasons had the least amount. Season 2 is when I found the Lanisters, their exchanges and their relationships most intriguing. I also liked quite of bit of the Baratheon brothers. It felt more like a complete season to me, as opposed to season 3, which felt a lil’ more cobbled together and all over the place. I don’t see seasons 2-4 as all that far apart.

    It’s so awesome to be me right now. I loved the season, and I am one happy fan. Sucks to be you – the dissapointed ones.

    As for the comments that the show started to suck after season 4 – this is just stupid. Seasons 5 and 6 were amazing in all quality. You are blinded (IMO).

    Can’t wait for July to see if the show can bounce back from the hate at the Emmys.

    What really sucks is being such an oblivious and obnoxious fanboy who refuses to acknowledge a landslide of perfectly legitimate criticism of a series that’s equally beloved by the “haterz” as its supporters (we wouldn’t have watched this series so passionately for eight seasons otherwise). Moving on, indeed.

    Two (of the many) things that I discovered in my rewatch: how great season 2 is and my love for Catelyn Stark. David Nutter’s season two episodes are totally incredible.

    Just finished the documentary, and ugh, I can’t believe this is actually goodbye to this show. It really makes you appreciate the time they spent behind the cameras, more than those D&D commentaries ever did. And those Emilia, Iain and Kit (or Keet) goodbyes got me so emotional. Also, I kinda want one of those crew jackets and Andrew McClay is stan goals lol.

    Variety did a Game of Thrones episodes ranking with a few strange choices, like Mhysa being the second to worst episode!

    Season 8 episodes positions:
    55. The Last of The Starks
    45. The Iron Throne
    22. Winterfell
    20. The Bells
    10. A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms
    6. The Long Night

    BTW, this show needs to win cinematography this year. The fact that has never won is just insane. I don’t even care for which episode, although The Long Night and The Iron Throne would be my picks. I know the former was dark, but it still had some of the best shots I’ve seen. If not this, then Handmaid’s should take it, because every shot could be framed.

    None of these except “A Knight of The Seven Kingdoms” deserves to be in the top 65.

    The Long Night deserves to be in Top 10. It was an amazing episode on nearly every level.

    By the way, down to 54% on RT (avr 6.63/10). Worst score of a Drama Series winner this century?

    Except writing and editing. If you think it deserves to be in the top 10, you don’t have enough appreciation for earlier Game of Thrones episodes.

    I don’t think the wirting was that bad. IT was not great, but not bad either. Editing? Seriously? The editing in that episode was insane! It will probably win Picture Editing at the Emmys also.

    For me it is in TOP 10 because:
    It has amazing setting, fantastic choreography and action, It is emotionally engaging, and full of suspense.
