Critic reviews for Dragonstone

While I found "Dragonstone" to be completely engaging, I was expecting a bit more action. It's evident the writers decided to go with the slow build. I take that to mean the remaining six episodes of this season should be quite the feast.

"Dragonstone" -- proceeds in a jolly combination of plot advancement and plot explanation, with visual glories and horrors accompanying.

Very little actually happens, but it grips viewers from start to finish.

"Dragonstone" did move a lot of pieces into place, re-establishing our memory of various alliances and giving a few key characters some show-stealing moments.

You'd be forgiven for expecting a season premiere that would concern itself with placing Game of Thrones' scattered, wildfire-singed gamepieces back on the board, methodically and meticulously. And yet: Things are ostensibly speeding up, right?
