Product Description

The Battle continues in Westeros with feuding families and power hungry rulers. Five Kings vie for a single, all-powerful throne in the all-new season of Game of Thrones--an epic story of duplicity and treachery, nobility and honour, conquest and triumph.

Season 2 plays out against the backdrop of a fast-approaching winter. In King's Landing, the coveted Iron Throne is occupied by cruel young Joffrey, counseled by his conniving mother Cersei and uncle Tyrion. But the Lannister hold on the Throne is under assault on many fronts. There's Robb Stark, son of the slain Lord of Winterfell, Ned Stark; Daenerys Targaryen, who looks to shore up her depleted power through three newborn dragons; Stannis Baratheon, eldest brother of the late King Robert; and Stannis' brother Renly, who has maintained his own claim since fleeing King's Landing. In the meantime, a new leader is rising among the wildlings North of the Wall, adding new perils for Jon Snow and the Night's Watch. With tensions and treaties, animosity and alliances, season 2 of Game of Thrones promises to be a thrilling journey through a riveting, unforgettable landscape.

Synopsis

Based on the bestselling book series by George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones is an epic drama set in the grounded fantasy continent of Westeros, where ambitious men and women of both honor and ill-repute live in a land where summers and winters can last years. Season 2 plays out against the backdrop of a fast-approaching winter – the season of the white raven. In King's Landing, the coveted Iron Throne is occupied by cruel young Joffrey, counseled by his conniving mother Cersei and uncle Tyrion, who has been appointed Hand of the King. But the Lannister hold on the Throne is under assault on many fronts. There's Robb Stark, son of the slain Lord of Winterfell, Ned Stark, who seeks autonomy in the North and has taken Cersei's brother Jaime prisoner in battle; Daenerys Targaryen, who looks to shore up her depleted power in the east through three newborn dragons; Stannis Baratheon, eldest brother of the late King Robert, who rejects Joffrey's legitimacy and aligns with a powerful priestess to raise a naval attack; and Stannis' brother Renly, who has maintained his own claim since fleeing King's Landing. In the meantime, a new leader is rising among the wildlings North of the Wall, adding new perils for Jon Snow and the order of the Night's Watch. With tensions and treaties, animosity and alliances, Season 2 of Game of Thrones promises to be a thrilling journey through a riveting, unforgettable fictional landscape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Paying The Iron Price For 13 Jun 2013
By MLA VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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 No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency but who only appears in one scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best thing on TV right now 15 May 2012
By Bronn TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'THE BATTLE LINES ARE BEING DRAWN' 7 Mar 2013
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
The series again, addictive viewing.
The once proud Kingdom has become fragmented after the death of 'King Robert'
leaving a young 'King Joffrey' to succeed driven by his power seeking mother
'Cerse' (The 'late' King's wife) who's family are the ambitious 'Lannister's)
The young King had sent shock-waves throughout the Kingdom when he ordered
the execution of 'King Robert's' loyal 'Hand' 'Ned Stark'
This coupled with the rumours regarding 'Joffrey's' rights to the throne is causing
an uprising against 'Kings Landing'
The scheming, always planning and wheeling-dealing talents of the lustful 'Lannister'
Imp 'Tyrion' should really be heeded by the young King in the light of what is to come.
There are now five Kingdoms within what had been one.
The 'now' King of 'Winterfell' and the north 'Rob Stark' is driven by the need to avenge
his father's death and heads his army south toward 'King's Landing'
He is supported by his mother 'Catelyn Stark's' wisdom and the joint need to rescue
the siblings who are now scattered around the kingdom but thus far surviving, and of
course daughter and sister 'Sansa' who is being groomed for 'King Joffrey' in 'King's
Landing'
The deceased 'King Robert's' brothers 'Stannis' and 'Renly' also lay claim to the Throne
and head army's of their own.
'Rob Stark's' army is fighting it's way toward it's objective, however this leaves 'Winterfell'
with little in the way of defences, the 'Greyjoys' see the opportunity to claim the territory.
