Meet the Characters
Queen Daenerys Targaryen
The death of her husband, Khal Drogo, has not stopped Daenerys from strategizing her return to the Seven Kingdoms to take back the Iron Throne. Impervious to fire, Dany used the heat of Drogo's funeral pyre to hatch the dragon eggs she was given as a wedding gift. She considers her dragons her children and will stop at nothing to ensure their well-being as she travels through Essos to save her people.
Ned Stark's bastard son, Jon was raised at Winterfell on near-equal footing with his siblings. He joined the Night's Watch where he serves as steward to Lord Commander Mormont. Despite his instincts to join Robb on the battlefield, he stayed up north to honor his vows to the Watch. While traveling beyond the Wall with the Lord Commander, he was separated from the rest of the group.
Cersei is the only daughter of Tywin Lannister, the richest man in the Seven Kingdoms. Even before she was married off to Robert Baratheon, she was involved in an incestuous relationship with her twin Jaime, the only sibling she cares for. With her son Joffrey reigning as king and her father Tywin now serving as his Hand, Cersei is finding her power eclipsed.
A dwarf, Tyrion is considered an embarrassment to his House and the fact that his mother died during his birth has not endeared him to his father. What Tyrion lacks in size and strength, he makes up for in mental acuity; his loyalty to House Lannister and the good of the Seven Kingdoms is unquestioned. He served as Hand of the King in his father's absence, and although few know it, it was Tyrion who hatched the plan that saved King's Landing from Stannis Baratheon's attack.
Jaime is twin brother to Queen Cersei. A celebrated knight and member of the Kingsguard, his reputation as "The Kingslayer" dogs him: It was he who slew the Mad King, in violation of his oath to protect the royal family. Robb Stark took him prisoner (twice), but Catelyn Stark, anxious to trade him for her daughters, set him free.
King Robb Stark
Lord of Winterfell and now King in the North, Robb has always been aware of the responsibilities that come with his title. At present, that means avenging his father's death and bringing his sisters home. Robb has a close relationship with his bastard half-brother, Jon Snow, but has vowed vengeance against Theon Greyjoy, his father's ward, who betrayed him by taking Winterfell and murdering members of the Stark household. Robb's direwolf is named Grey Wind.

game of Thrones sooo it might have biased my perception - but bottom line I do think this should be priced around 20$ lower.
It's hard to distill everything that happens in this season, and all the new characters and threats that are introduced, so I'll try to distill it in what I believe are the best moments. Daenerys Targaryen meeting The Unsullied, and her trek in defiance of a "man's world" is so vital, so strong and never gets stale. Bran meeting Jojen Reed to make sense of what he's becoming as a warg starts slow but builds extremely well. Jon Snow and Ygritte's relationship and Jon's "undercover" work with Mance Rayder's men is always compelling and suspenseful. The conflict that comes to a head between the Night's Watch and Craster. The initially antagonistic relationship between Jaime and Brienne comes into sharper focus as they warm up to each other. The plight of Davos and his friendship with Stannis conflicting with the intentions of Melisandre. The wedding of Tyrion and Sansa and the rift that creates with Shae. The interminable cruelty of Joffrey, and how he keeps getting figuratively spanked by Tywin. The Brotherhood Without Banners and the firey combat between The Hound and Beric.Read more ›
The dvd extras are very good - I particularly enjoyed the commentary of Richard Madden (Robb) & Michelle Fairly (Catelyn)'s on the Rains episode. Nice to have a few extended/deleted scenes, particularly one with Jon meeting Mance Rayder; another with Tywin meeting up with Pycelle isn't much cop, can see why they left that out; Tywin is best sparring with his son
The 15 minute video synopsis of the previous season is very VERY useful as there really is so much going on. A close watcher of the show might not remember that Bran & Rickon are presumed dead, that Littlefinger misled Catelyn into thinking BOTH her daughters were still held at Kings Landing
Actually, it might be a good idea, if you have NOT read the books to watch the previous seasons, to get you up to speed.
Nice touches: Ned being mentioned in the penultimate episode of the season. Its easy to forget how important his character was to the show, and how all the chaos unfolding is out of his unfair treatment by Joffrey back in season 1
Minor characters (like Roose Bolton, introduced in season 2) become crucial to the plot, and the attention to detail is crucial, especially if you've read the books. And that's another thing - the show is clearly done by fans of the book. There are no major changes to the book. Robb's wife gets a name change, and Arya meets with Tywin back in season 2 (as did NOT happen in the books) but theres nothing major.Read more ›

Cable series seasons are not released on video until the *next* Season premieres on air. Many network shows go to video soon after airing, But, i can't think of any cable
shows. If i am wrong someone will surely let me know shortly!
