    Fantastic and way better than the books

    Posted
    Moviewatcher

    The HBO writers have made up for the mess in Season 5 and the missing last two novels in the Song of Fire and Ice series. The character interactions are well done and main plots continue to develop. Characters that were slow to learn in Season 1 have matured and come into their own in Season 7. This fantasy series definitely needs to be watched from the beginning, in order to understand where the characters started from and have currently arrived at such as Arya and Sansa Stark. What is great in Season 7 is that the writers have remembered that fire kills the undead. They forgot that in Season 5, when there is a building on fire, and thousands of undead charging the gate, but nobody tries to take the burning logs or torches to stop the undead. They try to use swords and arrows, duh. In Season 7, Tyrion and The Onion Knight banter back and forth on how wildfire was used in the Kings Landing battle. Hopefully they will remember to bring wildfire to fire the undead in Season 8. What make Season 7 shine is the fantastic battle scene that involves a dragon and horsemen attacking an infantry column. The battle sequencing is well done, along with cinematography. It also has humorous moments that break the tension. The battle makes more logic than the Season 6 battle between the Jon and Ramsey with the silly mound of corpses to climb over. In a battle like that, they would go around once the bodies started to pile up over two feet high. Having a seven foot high pile of bodies was really stupid, despite how the producers wanted to make a “cool looking” scene. Fantastic season.

    This season of Game of Thrones gets criticized rightfully for accelerated pacing -- which was probably caused by two factors: 1) This is the first season totally without the net of any of George RR Martin's novels or writing to rely upon; and 2) HBO cut the number of episodes, probably due to the epic show's ever-escalating budget. However, this is Game of Thrones and it's still a great ride; it just requires a tad more suspension of belief than past seasons. (And that's saying something in a show with dragons and a zombie army.) On the technical side, presentation is fine -- the extras aren't anything to necessarily write home about, but the video and audio quality are excellent. I do recommend watching the extras with the histories of Westeros that are narrated by cast members.

    The Beginning of the End

    As Game of Thrones has progressed we've seen the world expand introducing characters on different paths (and often killing quite a few off in the process). As the penultimate season we begin to see the world contract. Characters who have been separated for years are re-united while new relationships are formed. It's always tough as a story closes out to make the final steps of keep interest before the ending. Thankfully most of this season was entertaining if feeling somewhat truncated. The shortened season at times is a problem as you never feel the time elapse. But on the other side of that, what would be going on to make up that time? Avid watchers will be pleased even if there is a little too much fan service at times. Overall this is a strong season that gets you excited for the series finale.

    I thought it would be too "DARK" for me... Knights and Dragons... oh no! BUT my daughter challenged me to watch two episodes and stop if I didn't like it. She and thousands (millions) of others ...were RIGHT. OMG, GOT ! I am about to turn 70. A Baby Boomer! What can I say about Game of Thrones? Phenominal writing! Outstanding Character Development! Unreal detail to costume and sets. Superb Acting! Great Cinematography! It just doesn't get better than this! A story you want to be never-ending, because you enter into it with the characters and are never disappointed by the twists and turns. I can't say enough! If you miss this one you have missed a treasure! I'll be rewatching episodes for the rest of my life!

    The last season of Game of Thrones was as surprising as many of the other seasons. It contained the internal battles between Houses, it led to the White Walkers who threatened the survival of all living folks, the Dragon Queen and Jon Snow become closer and Jon finds out about his parentage. There is a final battle with Cersie (sp) and the rest of the living and the conclusion of many stories resolved. i won't spoil the end but if you say that you watched the previous 6 seasons you won't want to miss the end.

    Fantastic 4K Boxed Set of a Fantastic Series

    I'm not going to go deep into how brilliant I think this series is. It's probably one of the top 5 most well crafted series of recent years (along with Breaking Bad, Peaky Blinders, Ozark etc.). The 4K version of this series proves to be of great quality - the blacks are darker and the whites of the tundra scenes really pop. I also love the audio (clanging of metal on metal and the dragon roars) are fantastic. If you can't wait a few years for an entire series boxed set, I highly recommend this product!

    Writing's getting sloppy, but still entertaining

    It's no secret that this season of GoT had some of the sloppiest writing in series history. Far too many leaps in logic (lightning fast ravens and Gendries) and unfulfilling/forced plot resolutions (like Jorah Mormont's story or the Jon/Dany thing). But I suspect with two years to write the final season, this won't be an issue for Season 8. All that being said, the show's still entertaining to watch: great visuals & CG, great sound & music, some nice dialogue. It's serviceable. Game of Thrones at its worst is still better than many things I've seen on TV.

    THE PENULTIMATE SEASON OF A GREAT SHOW!

    Game of Thrones, Season 7 is the last season for awhile, and the second to last entirely. As such, it is a great season that leaves you dying for more, but no one's quite sure when we'll get it. It provides the set up for the big battle between the human protagonists and the White Walkers from north of The Wall. It brings together the King of the North & The Queen of Dragons for the first time in a very provocative way. It leaves you dying for more. It sets the stage for the Grand Finale of one of TV's greatest & most talked about shows ever.

    GoT S7 Picking Up the Pace!

    While GoT S7 isn't on par with the best seasons of GoT (S3 and S4 in my opinion), it is much better than S5 and S6. The cold open to the season really set the tone for the whole season! Minor quibble - only 7 episodes. This seems to have fenced in the show runners as we don't see as much character development / exploration and people seem to warp all around the world of Westeros, but the major climatic battles are very satisfying. One note - the Digital HD code can be redeemed 3 times! UV (VUDU or FandangoNOW), iTunes, and Google Play!

    I’ve bought the blu ray sets for every season. Aside from all the extras and deleted scenes, I think the best part is having the in episode guide. This series has a ton of characters and lore that isn’t hashed out or explained on screen. It’s great to have the guide right there as you watch the episode and it even gives you cues when there’s something worth learning about. This all goes without saying the series is amazing and definitely worth watching.

    One of the best GOT seasons

    This was a great season in the Game of Thrones series. I really enjoyed seeing how all of the various plots and characters are coming together and setting up the final season. My only complaint is that it's only 7 episodes instead of the usual 10. There were a few episodes where the plot seemed a little rushed and I think they could have easily fleshed out some story lines by adding an episode or two.

    Pacing Problems

    As GOT has outpaced the novels on which it is based, it's developed some pacing problems, and one starts to wonder just how much time is elapsing on screen as people seem to cross continents and oceans just like they walked to the next room. Still, travel-by-plot concerns aside, it remains a riveting show one is likely to obsess over once he or she starts.

    Anyone who has not followed GOT from season 1 thru season 7 has been missing out on a great story. Not only is the storyline interesting but the actors that partake in the series are charismatic and also believable. Thankfully HBO on demand makes it available to new fans to be carried off to Westeros to enjoy this fantasy world of Heroes,Villains, Dragons and White Walkers. Our family watches GOT faithfully and we’ll be sad when it ends.

    Of course we watches this season on TV. However, since we have the other seasons, it was a no brainer to add this one to our collection. The extra features are a bonus and well worth watching. You can do so much more with the Blu-Ray than you can just watching on TV. For example, you can repeat certain parts that you may have missed, or need to understand ma little more. Anyways, without raving on and on, just get this!

    This show gets better and better with every season. This second to the last season does a phenomenal job of setting up the last season. The one complain can be that it is shorter than other seasons but everything present in other Game Of Thrones seasons is present here. A must have for all fans.

    Naysayers of the tv show will have issues with the pacing of this season (fair warning, it’s quicker than prior ones) as the show continues to mov3 beyond the scope of the source material. Minor critiques aside, season was strong in most respects and it tied up loose plot lines as we move towards the shows finale.

    I've been following this show since the beginning, and it's bittersweet that now it's nearly over. This is easily one of the greatest TV shows of all time, everyone involved always brings their A-game to everything they do, and I have absolutely NO IDEA how it could all end. But one thing's for sure; if they can keep the momentum going, it's going to be a grand finale. Bring on 2019!

    While not as detailed as the books, not everyone has hours of free time to read each book let alone keep up with all the little details/intricacies that George R. R. Martin has woven into them. That being said, it is crazy how much the writers/producers have managed to pack into the show and how good the show is given its limited time frame per episode. I highly recommend it.

    I'm not a huge fan of the series but my wife loves the show. To me, to much dialogue and there can be alot more violence and sex involved. Not because I'm a guy, just because I believe back in that "time" people were not as soft as they are now a days. But its worth watching atleast once.

    I don't have HBO at home but after watching the first season with a friend I have purchased all seven. It is a wonderful show with very high production values. The only reason it received 4 stars was due to the other seasons having at least 10 shows and this one has only 7. Due to this reason I felt like the cost should have been less because of the lack of content.
