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.

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.

The perfect gift for all movie buffs is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

This new season feels like a strong new start for the series. As fans already know, the third season was infamous for its "Red Wedding," a brutally-intoxicating event that reshaped the program's narrative by killing off several main characters. No longer are the vicious Lannisters-- so powerfully led behind the scenes by Tywin (Charles Dance) , the king's grandfather-- in an active war with the Stark family.

But the Lannisters are in a war with both themselves and the great threats growing in the Seven Kingdoms. At the end of season 3, many of the Lannister characters were reunited at King's Landing and despite the inarguable fact that they were victorious in the previous season, the inner workings of that manipulative family are insane-- to say the least. In the season premiere, for instance, it's easy to see that family's bonds slowly breaking apart. They were united before- not in location but in their goals- but now with fewer external enemies, their bitterness towards one another shows how fragile their family really is.

The addition of a sexually-psychotic visitor to King's Landing named Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) should also make this interesting. Oberyn has arrived in town for the king's wedding but his goals are unclear as of yet. "The Lannisters aren't the only ones who pay their debts," he says cunningly- a sentiment shared by the far-off Arya (Maise Williams), who is growing as both a character and as a warrior.
