Game of Thrones, Season 5HDTV-MAClosed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


A plethora of compelling storylines play out to their inevitable, often bloody conclusions in Season 5 of HBO's blockbuster, Emmy-winning drama series. In the wake of the numerous shocking deaths of Season 4, the season opens with a power vacuum that the various players all across Westeros and Essos scramble to fill. At Castle Black, Jon Snow must balance the demands of the Night's Watch with those of the newly arrived Stannis Baratheon. Meanwhile, Cersei struggles to hold on to power in King's Landing; Jaime embarks on a secret mission; Arya seeks out an old friend; Tyrion--now a fugitive--finds a new cause; and Daenerys finds that her tenuous hold on the city of Meereen requires hard sacrifices.

This season is the best yet! it starts out a little slow, but by the last half of the season is brilliant!!!


Loved this season. So glad to see that HBO is actually releasing it much earlier this time around on digital!!

A very good, but not "amazing" season

First off, thank god HBO came to their senses and are releasing the show at a somewhat decent time-span (as in not a FULL year), so that's a plus!

Anyways, from what I've seen a lot of people seem to really hate on this season with many calling it "easily the worst", and while I'd disagree to this, it's certainly not its best like a few saying on here. The key issue with season 5 is that, while we're perfectly fine with having our usual first-half that ratchets up the tension (this season actually had one of the better first-halves imo), beyond the last three episodes it seemed like there was a lot of grunt work throughout which slowly moved the cogs since season 4 in many ways ripped the rug out from under us. This is probably one of the more slow-paced of the seasons from what I can recall, and while again its still a great show, it didn't have the wow factor that stayed with me like season 3 and 4 held. I do have to agree with others that there's also a slight over-use of a disturbing theme involving women, some scenes are a bit stupid, and the plot's guilty of being meandering at times, but that shouldn't discourage you from continuing on, especially with episode 8 being possibly the best episode of the show to date.
Overall season 5 still gets a solid B+ from me as it at once features some of their best and worst episodes in this stretch.
