... its internal mechanics are solid. [Full review in Spanish]

El antepen˙ltimo mohicano

This may be the most crowd-pleasing, enjoyable, well-directed, streamlined, visceral, breathless, suspenseful, exhausting and expensive episode of "Game of Thrones" yet.

July 11, 2016 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

The ship has sailed. The ash has settled. The watch has ended. The door has closed ... In moving away from the books, they cast off the shackles and started hurtling towards the endgame. It was exciting, emotional, and epic.

What Culture

The season six finale actually paid off on each and every one of the most requested must-sees.

Showbiz Junkies

Two action-packed episodes into the new season, it looks like this could be the show's best one yet.

John Hanlon Reviews

Few shows on television look better than this one, but it's coming up on great-drama retirement age. Game of Thrones is getting older. But it's not dead, yet.

Audience Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 6

It's been many years since I've enjoyed a program anywhere near as much as I've enjoyed this season of Game of Thrones. The second 5 I've given to a TV show to date.

It breaks free from the source material, there were some good input but other decisions were questionable.

Driven by its undaunted drama, bloody-epic sequences and mysticism Game of Thrones Season 6 rises back up from its slump. The acclaimed series continues (and this time, with unknown factors of its unpublished canon) with sheer complexity and allure making for one its most revered seasons in the series. 4.5/5

Despite a couple 'slow' episodes, season six provides us with the two best episodes of the series, and some of the best television programs in history.
