Tonight in HD: December 5

SoHo Highlight: Game of Thrones (Sky 10, 8.30, 5.1) Ned confronts Cersei about her secrets; Jon takes his Night’s Watch vows; Drogo promises to lead the Dorthraki to King’s Landing. The Atlantic said episode seven “finally kicked its ‘game of thrones’ into high gear” following what The AV Club dubbed warned was “a truly shocking death, both in how abruptly it happens and in how appropriately sad and pathetic it is … It’s nice to see Game of Thrones rise to the challenge it set itself with all the characters, all the plot machinery and all the table-setting of the last six episodes. A lot of shows start out that way and don’t know how to close — but this doesn’t seem like one of them.” Concurred Time: “Like a battering ram in a siege, Game of Thrones took a while to roll into place. But now that it’s in motion, its momentum gets more undeniable week by week. And You Win or You Die was the series’ most thrilling and thematically rich hour to date.” Or, as The Guardian put it: “Gratuitous sex, brutal slaughter and a disembowled deer brighten up an episode in which trouble looms for King Robert.” ✭✭✭✭
