Review
A spectacular return to the fleshpots of the Seven Kingdoms. Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion is the series’ MVP, but there’s not a single character without meat on their bones. Unless you count the White Walkers.

The Game Continues

The dynastic struggle for Westeros continues in the second season of HBO's Game of Thrones. While the first season took a slow burn approach, the second season is all about frantically upping the ante. As five sides emerge in a full scale civil war, the in-fighting and political subterfuge proves to be just as compelling as the battle scenes. That coupled with the increasing supernatural element and the ever growing threat, from the White Walkers in the North and an increasingly ruthless Daenery... More
