Season 5 is very good. There's a new king (because honestly, what's a GOT season without a new king waiting to be killed by 6 different armies). The power struggles continue between.....well....everyone. While highly entertaining, the whole season does feel like a transition to set up huge changes for season 6.

Arya Stark continues her journey to Braavos to meet the faceless man, in what is one of the most interesting story arcs of the series.

Sansa Stark is FINALLY starting to be an interesting character after laboring through 4 seasons of her expecting everything to just turn out well because she's rich. She's finally realized that there is a 'game' to game of thrones and that she has to play it. (She stinks at playing the game. But at least she's playing it.) Her fate is left unclear.

Oh, and there are finally dragons in this show that is supposed to have a lot of dragons. They don't show up for more than a few seconds until near the end of the season, but when dragons finally show up to do something they do it with a vengeance! It makes the wait for drag action well worth it! And the White Walkers stop being imaginary boogeymen and show up with authority as well.

Overall the production value of the series continues to be insanely high. The sets, the costumes, the props....they all create a visual image so real that by the end of each episode you feel like you just spent an hour in Westeros. The acting adds so much more on top of that, without a single bad player in the cast. The CGI is flawless and blends naturally with the live action and live sets. It doesn't look hokey or "updated Star Wars" at all. It's solid use of CGI, which is a refreshing change.

Much will be written about the fifth season of Game of Thrones in the months and years to come. This was always going to be the season in which George R.R. Martin's novels and David Benioff and D.B. Weiss's TV show were going to dramatically diverge from one another, the near-inevitable result of both the needs of dramatisation (which would likely not bear the introspection and subtlety of the fourth and fifth books in the series) and the fact that the TV show is now outpacing the books, requiring both outright invention on the part of the producers as well as drawing on elements from books as-yet unreleased, or even unwritten.

This process has mixed results. In some cases, the adaptation continues to hit its sweet spot of getting complex stories from the novels across on screen in a simpler form, but one that is also clearer, more concise and retaining the thematic essentials whilst paring away unnecessary (if still interesting) supporting material and characters. King's Landing particularly benefits from this, with lots of minor politics involving new or vanishingly minor characters swept aside in favour of a more ruthless focus on Cersei's growing hatred of the Tyrells and the arrival of the High Sparrow, played with flawless passion by Jonathan Pryce. This culminates in the excellent, distressing "Walk of Shame" sequence, in which Lena Headey knocks it out of the park as Cersei is humiliated to the point where even the most hardened viewer may feel sorry for her, despite her many crimes.

Almost as well-handled (until its conclusion) is the story at the Wall.

Yes, I can agree that the start and finish of this season feels strange and even close to disappointing. Sansa's situation, the underwhelming Dorne side of the story, the build up for Arya finally reaching the House of black and White, others parts involving from book to screen changes....and that season finale..It will rub the wrong way for many fans of the book series and the HBO series. I’m not a devout fan of the book material, and I’ve actually gone out and defended some changes like the Hound’s fate. The season does finally pick up after the 7th episode and each one after pack an emotional punch that feel like you are constantly going up and down on a roller coaster.

After the supremely negative 6th, out of freaking nowhere, episode 7 and 8 remind you why Game of Thrones is still ONE OF THE BEST TV shows ever conceived. 7 finally pushes the narrative forward with key story elements from the novels Feast for Crows and Dance of Dragons. The 8th episode, titled "Hard Home," pushes it even more and delivered One of the best episodes of the show's entirety. Usually it’s the 9th episode of each season that personifies the most shocking and remembered events from the books. I'm not saying HBO changed that method. The 9th had me grinning like a kid on Christmas. However, "Hard Home was the God(s)Send the audience needed for this show. I pre-ordered a Blu-Ray copy of this season immediately after watching it on my small tablet through HBOGO. It was if the TV show runners said "you know what, we’re gonna show this event anyway and remind the audience of what the real threat is." Yes, this is part of the book to screen changes, but this 100% worked!
