this is mainly a post for the digital Copy info...or lack thereof.

Besides the bluray disks & the double sided DVD's you get ONE code that works with itunes AND either Amazon Instant, Vudu, or Flixster (Ultraviolet).

Note: sign up/in at Flixster/UV and then LINK your VUDU account. This allows you to get the 1080p copy onto your PS3 and still keep it stored in the cloud that is UV/Flixster.

I do not keep anything in Amazon's cloud (yet) but the option is there for you.

summary: Season2 is on my apple tv [iCloud](1080p/720p), and its also in the Vudu cloud (1080p) so I can watch it on my PS3.

sadly, the box does not state this nice 2 way digital copy code, but its all in there, which is nice that HBO realizes that people might want to watch it on a computer, iOS device, or PS3 AND gives you this flexibility.

Hope this helps.

I am unthinkably lucky. My favorite book series of all time has been turned into one of the best television shows of all time.

And I'm not the only one who thinks so! Critics love it, award shows laud it, and record-breaking millions of viewers are tuning in.

The dialog is superb, flowing with hidden subtext, overt emotion, political posturing, unfortunate truths, naÔve admissions, and much more. And each line is perfectly acted! I don't know how they managed to fill an ensemble cast of this scope with such talented actors, but even the children are impeccable. Joffrey conjures uncontrollable hatred, managing to be one of the most contemptible characters to grace the screen, and at such a young age! I feel bad for that kid. There's no way anyone will be able to look at him the same again.

Season 2 picks up after the shocking events of season 1, which I won't mention in case you haven't seen it. And if that's the case, what are you doing? Go watch it right now!

The death of a monarch has left the land of Westeros in political turmoil, rulers declaring themselves kings on every corner of the map. As the inevitable war ensues, we follow the various leaders, rooting for the most honorable, but simultaneously fearing for their lives, for this is a dark show, and the most just cause is often the most treacherous. Our heroes do not have the strength of numbers, but rather the strength of character, and that does not win wars.

The season launches us headfirst into this maelstrom of a power struggle, introducing us to even more characters than before. For people who haven't read the books, it may be a bit hard to follow, but the show does its best and usually manages to pull it off.

Don't get me wrong: I love Game of Thrones. It is one of my favorite series of all time. I've watched every episode to date with enthusiasm.

This review is about the un-skippable ad at the beginning of the DVD, completely loaded with spoilers.

I got this DVD as a gift for my friend who hasn't seen any of season 2. They were spoiled within 30 seconds of watching by this ridiculous advertisement. Why on earth would anyone think it a good idea to force-advertise the show that is already being watched?? What an atrocious marketing department these guys have.

It's this reason alone I have to give this product 1 star, as it manages to completely ruin itself literally within 30 seconds of hitting "Play". If you give it as a gift or for yourself, just be warned.

I LOVE this show. Yes, I'm a hugeee book fan and don't appreciate all of the changes in the show, but overall I am a huge fan.

Rating guide:
Non-readers: 4-5 stars
General book readers: 3.5-4.5 stars
Book purists/fanatical: 0-2 stars

This is a great show, but in my eyes it's just not as good as season 1. It is definitely better compared to most of what is on television and the acting is superb and extremely well cast. However, my problems with this season revolve around two main issues:

#1) the severe deviations from the books that the D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have taken. In the first season deviations existed, but mostly to the point to help with time/budget constraints. The writers still generally stayed true to the characters.

Season 2 is a whole different story. GRRM has spoken many times of the Butterfly Effect. The more the writers change things, the more the story is going to change in the long run. With the huge amount of characters in the series, seemingly little changes can have huge implications. While season 1 generally stayed true to the novel (which I gave five stars to), season 2 took a life of its own. Many story lines were completely invented or so heavily modified that they barely were anything like the books.

I know that television/movies adaptations MUST be different from the books. However, I think it's crucial that the writers still accurately capture the essence of the characters. When the writers started to play with the characters and get cute, I decided that they weren't doing it due to budget/time constraints, but because they thought they were *better.* And they're not.

#2) It isn't as nearly as good overall this season compared to last, REGARDLESS book deviations.
