TV Series Review: Game of Thrones ( Season 2 )

Season 2 spans several months on a world where the seasons last for years at a time. The Seven Kingdoms are at war, with the King in the North, Robb Stark, fighting to win independence for his people and those of the Riverlands. Robb decides that he must win the allegiance of the fiercely independent ironborn to his cause, and sends his best friend Theon Greyjoy to treat with his father, who is hatching plans of his own. Meanwhile, Joffrey Baratheon holds the Iron Throne with the backing of the powerful House Lannister, but his uncle Renly has also claimed the throne with the support of House Tyrell, whose armies are much larger. As they struggle for the throne, Tyrion Lannister arrives in King's Landing to take matters in hand, only to face opposition from his scheming sister, Cersei, now the Queen Regent.
However, there is another faction entering the picture. Stannis Baratheon, Robert's younger brother and Renly's older, has also claimed the Iron Throne. A proven battle commander and veteran of several wars, Stannis is known to be utterly without mercy to his enemies and will do what is right even if it destroys him. Advising him is Melisandre, an enigmatic priestess from the east, who believes Stannis is meant for a greater destiny, and Ser Davos Seaworth, an honest and honorable man uneasy with the shifts in power at Stannis' court.
Far to the east, Daenerys Targaryen has hatched the only three dragons in the world. Eventually they will grow into terrifying monsters capable of destroying cities at her command, but for now they are still hatchlings and vulnerable. With her khalasar gone, Daenerys and her small band of followers must find a way across a forbidding wasteland and find new allies to support her claim to the Iron Throne.
In the distant north, the Night's Watch has mounted an expedition beyond the Wall, searching for missing rangers and investigating rumours of wildlings gathering in the mountains. For Jon Snow this will be a rite of passage as he is asked to make difficult choices, for the realm and for himself.(from wikipedia)

It feels like yesterday when i was sitting down writing the review of GOT Sn.1. And here i am with another season finished. If you have read my review for the previous season, you will now by now i had a lot of "negative" things to do. Now, it seems like the producers listened to me and fixed some of those.

For starters, there are barely any sex scenes in contrast of the previous season. Thank god! I feel so good about it. It was too much before but now it's actually okay. They concentrated more on the story than unnecessary scenes for the audience.

But even though, they gave more to the story, poor Daenerys and John Snow has two really boring storylines. I was really really bored at the their scenes and especially Snow's. Also, is it my idea or he is turning into a Bella with the same expression on his face all the time!?
Still who cares really? We get way more scenes at King's Landing, which yes it means more Joffrey and Sansa who i don't like, but also means more Tyrion! He is so freaking awesome! Easily the best character at the series : ) Next, comes Arya with the 2nd most interesting storyline for me and many scenes with the Lannister papa! Talk about cast connection!
The other characters are okay. They have some interesting things to do and there are many new characters too with my favorite Brianne, if i remember her name right.
The whole storyline is way better in general, with more backstabbing and faster which keeps you at the edge of your sit.

Important to mention here is, the fact that there was actually a battle in this season. Unfortunately, i really didn't like it. If you payed attention on what's was happening at the previous episodes, what will happen was pretty obvious. The whole thing did not excite me at all and it was a bit boring and opposite the rest of the series not well made and confusing. Still, it was something different and Tyrion was awesome once again so okay....

Now they just have to kill Theon and Joffrey and i will be happy :)

The show has been renewed for a 3rd season.


  1. They definitely need to kill off Joffrey and Theon. The annoy me to no end. And Brienne is awesome. I like her too. Jaqen Hagar is pretty cool as well. I was hoping to see more of Jon Snow in the 2nd season and was a bit disappointed. Overall the 2nd season had its ups and downs, but it was still quite good.


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
