The world's most popular TV series, 'Game Of Thrones', may be on its last leg- with just an episode left for the finale of the series, but the final 8th season has been rated the lowest by fans worldwide. 

Rating aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes revealed on Sunday that the eight and the final season of 'Game Of Thrones' has merely got a 77% rating and since only an episode is left- it is unlikely that the ratings will pick up. Even if the final season manages a 100% rating for the final two episodes, the overall rating for the season will rest at 85% which would still be the lowest the series has ever witnessed. Read the review of episode 4 here.

Here's a look at the season-wise ratings for the show on Rotten Tomatoes: Season 1: 91%, Season 2: 96%, Season 3: 96%, Season 4: 97%, Season 5: 93%, Season 6: 94%, Season 7: 93%, Season 8: 77%

In fact, the 4th episode of the season, 'The Last of Starks' was the second worst rated episode of the entire series. The episode was criticized for its blotchy editing ( with coffee cup blooper) and poor writing and people called out the makers for trying to normalize rape in a scene featuring the Hound and Sansa.
