TV Review: Game of Thrones S8E1 – ‘Winterfell’

With the final season of the universally-loved Game of Thrones having kicked off on Sunday night to a record-breaking 18 million viewers on HBO alone, The Indiependent will be reviewing the episodes week by week, as we get closer to finding out who will grace the Iron Throne. The first episode of the last ever […]Read More

TV Review: Game of Thrones S7E7 – ‘The Dragon and

At almost 80 minutes long, The Dragon and The Wolf still only just manages to cram in everything needed to tie up all the season’s loose ends. It was managed thanks to a dialogue-driven episode that saw reunions, revelations and resolutions galore, but still left enough questions to leave us in a state of perpetual […]Read More

TV Review: Game of Thrones S7E6 – ‘Beyond the Wall’

The stakes get higher and the fighting fiercer in the penultimate instalment of what we must surely all now acknowledge as the most enjoyable TV show of all time, ever; Game of Thrones.

TV Review: The Winds of Winter // Game of Thrones

It has become the trend that the penultimate episode of a Game of Thrones Season is the biggest, best and boldest, yet while this has been the case for almost every season, I have to concede that The Winds of Winter has managed to out-do Battle of the Bastards. While it may not be as action-packed as its […]Read More

TV Review: Game of Thrones // Battle of the Bastards

There are no words to describe my feelings after watching this week’s highly anticipated Battle of the Bastards. I was genuinely left awe-struck by this week’s episode. It was a total masterpiece. Granted, we only saw the story-lines in Mereen and at Winterfell, but I swear by the Old Gods and the New that it has […]Read More
