For me this is the best show on TV at the moment, and Season 4 is the best season so far....

A little GoT history - originally George RR Martin (the author of the book series) wrote 3 books. Season 4 is mainly based on the second half of the third book. As this is the main climax of the original books, the action in season 4 is fast and free flowing, but well balanced with intense drama as well.

After the original 3 books, 2 more have been written and material from both of these is included in season 4 for several reasons - it adds balance to the fast action, it gives some characters more to do, it progresses the story at a more 'tv suitable' pace, etc....

The production for season 4 is as high as you would expect from any top HBO show and is easily up to the high standards set by seasons 1-3.

Similarly, the acting is as good as ever. There are great performances in every episode and not always just from the 'big hitters' like Charles Dance and Peter Dinklage.

The whole season is full of twists and if you guess one, the next one will hit you before you even realise! If you thought the 'red wedding' in season 3 was good, you're in for a real treat with season 4.

The plots (for me at least) were less complicated than in Season 3, but this is mainly because season 3 was doing a lot of preparatory work for season 4.

It's very difficult to review in more depth without giving away spoilers which I'm conscious not to do, but if you want to ask a question please do....

I can't recommend this highly enough.

However, if you haven't seen Seasons 1-3 first then you should. Season 4 is incredible, but without the background and character histories it will lose a lot of it's meaning.

A box set containing all ten episodes, spread across five dvds, of the fourth season fantasy drama series Game of Thrones.

New viewers should start with season one, as this isn't a good jumping on point.

Regular viewers will be used to the show by now, and all that it offers. Season four brings more of the same.

The Lannisters attempt to consolidate their hold on power. But their own worst enemy might be the children of the family not measuring up to their father's expectations.

The remaining Starks are scattered to the four winds, but not done for yet.

The Boltons have the North. Now they have to take it.

Stannis has to find a way to fight back.

Daenerys learns that it's one thing to take power. It's another to keep it.

Jon Snow is back at Castle Black, and is well aware that it's about to be attacked by a very large army.

And a newcomer to King's landing is after revenge.

As before, it jumps between the storylines with scenes in each episode going between characters. Some of whom may be absent for an episode or two.

New characters appear. The best being Prince Oberyn Martell, aka 'The Red Viper' Of Dorne. A man who lives life to the full and who really doesn't like the Lannister family. Actor Pedro Pascal delivers a stunning performance as a hugely appealing character whom you won't forget in a hurry.

Actor availability means Daario Naharis is recast, which is why he looks and sounds completely different to year three.

We also get to see characters again who haven't been seen in a while.

And occasionally, people die.

There's also another stunning episode that is all one big battle.

Warning - This review contains some potential spoilers

So season 4 has drawn to a scintillating close and Monday night is now completely in tatters. All we can do is wait with deep wrenching impatience and anticipation until next year. This has been a superb season with Episode 9 "The Watchers on the Wall" resembling an epic of Lord of the Rings proportions around the siege of Castle Black and the terrible conclusion of Episode 8 involving the trial by combat between Red Viper and the Mountain still vividly lodged in your mind. However it is the series finale "The Children" that tops them all and without revealing its conclusion, it's timely justice for Tyrion!

Whilst nothing in Series 4 comes quite as close to the sheer jaw dropping drama of Series 3 classic episode "The Red Wedding" the Series 4 finale has a quality about it that can only be found in great films like "The Godfather II". The drama unfolds in almost a Shakespearian fashion and whilst loose ends are tied up a myriad of questions evolve out of the pulsating script. The acting throughout deserves Grammys by the shedload not least one of the most unlikely "buddy" pairings in TV history namely Ayra Stark (the brilliant Maisie Williams) and the strangely loveable uber thug "The Hound". The scriptwriters have also played a huge role in this series with more deviations from George R R Martins books which makes the plot and storyline sharper and more dynamic. For example that gigantic Brienne and the Hound fight never happened in the novels, but it was stellar television. The other key dimension of the series is that the multiplicity of individual story lines are now merging ever closer so the overall plot line is much clearer and the context more powerful.
