Game of Thrones Season 2 takes on the series from the outstanding Season 1, keeping it firmly as the best fantasy show on television and in competition for the best television show of any genre. Season 2 follows on directly from the previous season, building the various factions amid an outstanding world of intrigue, politicking, and battle.

What has set Game of Thrones apart is the sheer breadth of ambition. The best of US television shows have been ensemble. Nothing has come close to producing the range of cast assembled here. While one faction does disappear from Season 1 as those who inhabited the Eerie play no role but the addition of more groups just makes this so much more fascinating than traditional television for those with short attention spsns.

The factions are largeiy the same as in Season 1. The Lannisters retain control of the capital of Westeros, King's Landing. They are at war with the Starks who are pushing south from Winterfell following the execution of Ned Stark towards the end Season 1. Further north, beyond the wall are the Wildlings and the Knights Watch. Far away but still seeking to return are a faction of Dothraki led by the Targaryen claimaint to the throne of Westeros. New for Season 2 are two different factions of Baratheons angling for the kingship, the wealthy and ambitious Tyrells, and the warlike Iron Islanders.

With so many factions it can at times be hard to keep track. That is especially when seemingly important characters turn out not to have a real role. This is particularly the case with the very brief apperance of Lucian Msomati who viewers will recognise from

I won't beat around the bush here, Season 2 is superior to Season 1. This show
is quite extraordinary and just gets better and better as it progresses. You know
you're watching something special when 50min episodes feel like 25min shorts - time
just flies by when watching Game of Thrones, and although the climax of each episode
means the end, it's not without some amazing cliffhanger which makes you crave for more.

Season 2 covers the whole of the second book, 'A Clash of Kings', and it progresses the
story forward at a decent rate whilst introducing plenty of new faces, making the battle
for the Iron Throne very intense. Not all of the people you'd expect to see in Season 2
are here yet, the show's creators stated that Season 2 introduced enough new faces, so
several key characters that appear in 'A Clash of Kings' have been delayed until Season 3.

We're at a good point now though, where most of the show's foundations have been set in Season 1,
so the story is free to steam forward. As always, the acting for the series is just top notch, and
the sets look superb, although the big battles usually have to fade to black because of budget and
man power issues i suspect, other than that the show is almost perfect. Just like Season 1 there
are some great twists, even more nudity, even more fighting and a little bit of love & laughter
with a splash of tears - it's the complete television show and right now, the best thing on TV.

If you watched and enjoyed Season 1 then this is an obvious purchase. For anyone new to the
series, pickup Season 1 and 2, clear your schedule and prepare to watch some damn fine
television, then join the rest of us in the year long wait until Game of Thrones Season 3.

Compared to Season 1, there is loads more plot, more characters, and a wider fantasy world is depicted, as rival kings manoeuvre for victory. The special features help immensely in understanding who's who and what's going on. As an adaptation of the huge books, it is a triumph. The way you tell a story on-screen is different from on-page. So much that the books describe has to be shown us through the actions of characters and the acting out of events. Settings have to be taken in completely visually. The writers and directors succeed brilliantly. I had to use will power to restrict myself to watching just one episode at a time, and was truly saddened to reach the end of them all. I'll be there to buy Series 3, and I bet you will be, too.

War rages across Westeros as five Kings battle for the right to sit upon the Iron Throne. The young King Joffrey continues his reign with his uncle Tyrion Lannister taking the position of Hand of the King and attempts to bring his sadistic nephew under control. Meanwhile Daenerys Targaryen, along with her new-born dragons, attempts to lead her remaining people to safety and rebuild her power base, arriving in the mercantile city of Qarth. North of the Wall, John Snow and the men of the Nights Watch search for the Wildlings who have been massing under the banner of a traitor.

I really like the first season of 'Game of Thrones' and I am glad to say that this second season is even better. I still haven't gotten around to read the Song of Ice and Fire novels that the show is based so I cannot say how close the season sticks to its source material unfortunately but watching season two has definitely motivated me to read the books at some point.

The plot of this second season is just as convoluted as the first and if anything this is the only real problem with the series as a whole as there is so much happening in various places that some events and characters don't seem to get the focus that they probably deserve. Despite this however, I still found the series engaging enough to keep watching and I will definitely be getting season three when I have the chance. Most of the characters in the series remain interesting but Tyrion Lannister remains my favourite character in the series by far as he tries to do the best job he can as substitute Kings Hand while navigating the politics of King's Landing. The season also introduces a number of new characters with the female knight Brienne Tarth played by Gwendoline Christie easily being my favourite of these.
