A worthy final for the best season so far.
16 June 2014 | by loppy66See all my reviews

All expectations met: Just brilliant! The presentation of season 4 was more than nice - it never could have been done better than this in any movies (trilogy or similar). The development of the new core characters is pictured in a very nice manner - the acting was more than fantastic - looking so forward for season 5 and beyond. I would wish the world of Ice and Fire would not end at all! The atmosphere in all circumstances was great. I just would wish we would have seen more details rather than going a little rushed through the book(s). Anyway hands down it was the most amazing season so far, very close to GRRM's Song of Ice and Fire. If you'd say Season 1-3 was good - season 4 will just amaze you - especially with "The Children" as its final. Keep up the good work HBO and the GOT team!
