  Nothing better on T.V

| | See all AFineBuy's reviews (5)

I have read all the books in this series, so I know the story well... Series two was very entertaining with many unpredictable events taking place, and It all kicks off again in season three with even more very compelling twists to the story line; which is trademark for this series. I'm more than happy to pay good money for the priviledge of watching this really interesting story unfold... Just hope the series is concluded, so fans get their monies worth.

  Season 2 ?

If you saw season one then you have already seen season 2.
It is simply a re-edit on season one with most of the best bits left out

  Underwhelming!

| | See all DLR1965's reviews (35)

In comparison to the first series, the second has proved underwhelming, and lacks the punch and impact I'd hoped would continue throughout.
The cast, production and sets are brilliant, but the storylines are all over the place and seem lacking in any direction or strength.
The fact that series 1 had strong leading characters and plotlines has unfortunately resulted in providing a benchmark, which this series doesn't quite live up to. Various scenes also appear to rely on dialogue which at times prove unnecessary and only serve to fill time.
Hopefully series 3 will offer the brilliance and impact that series 1 delivered.

  Epic Television

Many fans of the books on which the series is based have been somewhat critical of the changes and edits made in this second season. Having not read the books myself I cant comment on that but judged purely on its own merits, as really it should be, Game of Thrones continues to excel in every department.

As with the first season there are still plenty of long scenes of dialogue required in order to explain the complex world of Westeros but thanks to some fantastic writing and brilliant performances from the entire cast these are just as interesting as the often brutal action interspersed between. Quite how the creators have managed to create such an epic series on a television budget, even one as large as HBO have provided, I will never know.

  Game of Thrones 2 : Slow to erupt, but be prepared

| | See all colinski's reviews (8)

Focusing more on tension, than of providing out and out thrills, the second series of Game of Thrones has a very slow fuse indeed. However, with a cast to dream of , and a spectacle that lesser production teams can only aspire to achieve, we are surely in for a mind blowing treat in the closing episodes.
