1.) Description (Editorial Review)
Game of Thrones just gets better with age. I will cry when it is
all over next season. As we know, this is the penultimate season 7
and boy does it deliver. (By the way, the word, 'Penultimate'
means, 'next to last' to those who are confused.) It begins with
Daenerys landing on the shores of Dragon Stone and ends with...
well, I won't spoil that for you. Suffice it to say that the ending
will leave you breathless, horrified and agonizing because you will
have to wait over a year to see what happens next. By now, we all
are fully invested in every character- we know them well and we
either hate them or love them. This season brings many of these
relationships into full fruition- either in fulfillment or death.
What I found most notable this season were the costumes. That
department has truly moved into a new dimension in movie making.
Not only are the costumes sumptuous in their designs, fabric (Oh!
the fabrics!) and details, but they are so well conceived that they
look like clothing that people in those roles might actually wear.
Sometimes, I am so awe inspired by the details in the clothing that
I am distracted from the acting! It's truly remarkable. The acting
seems completely natural now- I no longer see the actors, I see
only the characters. I love the special effects- again, a major
feat for t.v. It will be a long time before any sci-fi or fantasy
movie can even begin to challenge GOT on that aspect. I
At first I wasn't interested in the series, since I hate Lord of
the Rings and all type of fantasy. This show despite having magic
and dragons shows a serious degree of realism in the social
interactions. The author was heavily inspired by History and
Realist authors such as Machiavelli. One of the smartest and most
complex TV shows I've seen. I, Claudius and the original House of
Cards come to mind as possible rivals, but honestly GoT has to be
the smartest TV series I've ever seen.

1.)GOT is the best show to ever grace television, most of us already
agree on that. So I am gonna use this review to help people who
have HBO Subscriptions through Amazon. Now, if you can't, or are
worried you can't, stream the episode as it first airs, here is
what I did. (Mind you I could do this on my Samsung Galaxy Tablet
A, and not on my Kindle Fire HD. Download HBO NOW and open it. Now,
register with HBO NOW if you haven't already. Next, connect your
Amazon HBO subscription to HBO NOW by simply selecting Amazon as
your provider. Type in your usual Amazon account name and password.
Boom! Your connected. Now, at first I thought I could only watch
episode 1 when it aired, ONLY on my tablet, but I clicked my HBO
channel subscription on my television and there it was with that
magical little button we all love that says WATCH NOW. Hope that
helps someone. I was freaking out an hour before "Dragonstone" was
about to start, and calling Amazon support was NO help at all. They
told me I had to wait to watch it the next day. After waiting over
a year for Season 7, YEAH RIGHT, NO WAY!!! Enjoy!
2.)I love GOT, but I have to admit it is silly to watch GOT through
Amazon and pay $14.99 for 4 episodes until it is over for those of
us that DO NOT want an HBO subscription. Most of us will just
cancel it after GOT is over. Why can't we just buy the episodes
weekly like with most TV shows in the US and abroad and pay a flat
fee? For example... like "Vikings" or "Mad Men" (when that was on
the air). Charge a bit more per episode for HBO sake it that is
what it takes, but subsciptions is silly.
