Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men...all will play the 'Game of Thrones.' A new original series based on George R.R. Martin's best-selling 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series.
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.
In Season 3, family and loyalty will be the overarching themes, and many critical plot points from the first two seasons will come to a violent head, with several major characters meeting cruel fates. While a primary focus continues to be on King’s Landing, where the Lannisters barely held onto power after a savage naval onslaught from Stannis Baratheon (brother of the late king), stirrings in the North threaten to alter the overall balance of power in Westeros. Robb Stark, King of the North, will face a major calamity in his efforts to build on his victories over the Lannisters in Season 2, while further north, Mance Rayder (new character, played by Ciarán Hinds) and his huge army of wildlings continue their inexorable march south to scale the Wall. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen – reunited with her three deadly, fast-maturing dragons – attempts to raise an army of slaves to sail with her from Essos, in hopes of eventually overthrowing the Iron Throne.
As Season 4 begins, the Lannisters' hold on the Iron Throne remains intact in the wake of the Red Wedding slaughter that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses. But can they survive their own egos as well as new and ongoing threats? Meanwhile, an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army; the Lannister-loathing ‘Red Viper of Dorne,’ Oberyn Martell, arrives at King's Landing for Joffrey's wedding to Margaery Tyrell; Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons and unsullied force aim to liberate the largest Slavery City in the east...with long-range plans to take back the Iron Throne; and a depleted Night's Watch faces the advance of Mance Rayder's wildling army, who are in turn running from the undead White Walkers.
After the shocking deaths of S4, the season begins with a power vacuum that protagonists across Westeros and Essos look to fill. At Castle Black, Jon Snow struggles to balance the demands of the Night’s Watch with those of newly-arrived Stannis Baratheon, who styles himself as the rightful king of Westeros. Meanwhile, Cersei scrabbles to hold on to power in Kings Landing amidst the Tyrells and the rise of a religious group led by the enigmatic High Sparrow, while Jaimie embarks on a secret mission. Across the Narrow Sea, Arya seeks an old friend while a fugitive Tyrion finds a new cause. And as danger mounts in Meereen, Daenerys Targaryen finds that her tenuous hold on the city requires some hard sacrifices.

From the manufacturer
The Targaryen family hails from the city of Valyria on the eastern continent of Essos. House Targaryen is one of the Great Houses of Westeros, ruling the Seven Kingdoms for three centuries before being overthrown by House Baratheon killing most of the family in the process. Their house words are 'Fire and Blood', a fitting motto for a family with fire-breathing dragons.
House Stark of Winterfell is one of the Great Houses of Westeros, ruling over the vast region, The North. Winterfell, an ancient castle known for its strength, is under their rule. Their family line is one of the oldest of Westerosi nobility, stretching back over 8,000 years. As they are the most influential and notable power in the North, they’ve earned the devotion and respect from the Houses surrounding them. Unlike other House mottos that usually boast or threaten, the Stark’s has one that will always be relevant: ‘winter is coming’.
House Lannister of Casterly Rock is one of the most powerful families and oldest dynasties. As their seat is Casterly Rock, they have access to the most productive gold mine in the Westerlands, making them the wealthiest family in the realm. Their official family motto is 'Hear me Roar!' but what they’re well-known for saying is: 'A Lannister always pays his debts' and usually mean it in a more literal sense.

BUT, and it's a big but: some fool or the other decided NOT to include subtltes for the Dothraki language scenes only. Which means you have no subtitles, or you have to use subtitles for the entire episode, which nobody with a decent command of English needs or wants.
To make this worse, as I sadly have come to expect from US and UK box sets, the general subtitles are single line and in a horrendous font that makes them hard to read without quickly going cross-eyed. I am Dutch and hence very used to subtitles, since foreign media is always subtitled here (rather than dubbed). It's clear US and UK companies have no idea what good subtitles look like...
Apart from the ridiculous lack of Dothraki-only substitles, this is an excellent box set with lots of extra goodies, and great value for money!
Player so I played the disks on my lap top with not so much as a twitch so the fault was with the DVD player not the disks... I would recommend these to anyone
This is a loooooong story, so long that I gave up on the books after reading about seven and no sign of any resolution. But, it is told so very well in this made-for-tv serial. Great casting (and its a huge cast), a wonderful range of locations, good acting and some serious special effects - the dragons are superb! - create something that grabs you and just won't let go.
