Product Description

In the second season of the epic HBO original series Game of Thrones, kings from across the fictional continent of Westeros vie for the Iron Throne. As winter approaches, the cruel young Joffrey sits upon the Throne in King's Landing, counseled by his conniving mother Cersei and his uncle Tyrion, who has been appointed the new Hand of the King. But the Lannister hold on power is under assault on many fronts, with two Baratheons donning crowns, and Robb Stark fighting as the King in the North. With tensions and treaties, animosity and alliances, Season Two is a thrilling journey through a riveting and unforgettable landscape.

Amazon.com

The epic scope of the grand television fantasy series Game of Thrones is matched by the extraordinary wealth of extras found in its sophomore-season set. Based on A Clash of Kings, the second novel in George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series, season two of Game of Thrones admirably encapsulates the sprawling War of the Five Kings, which pits the malevolent Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) against a host of contenders for the throne of the late King Robert (Mark Addy), including his brothers Stannis (Stephen Dillane) and Renly (Gethin Anthony). Further complicating matters is the appointment of Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) as Hand of the King to Joffrey, which sets off an intense behind-the-scenes power struggle with his siblings, Cersei (Lena Headey) and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who carry on an incestuous affair. Meanwhile, there's also the issue of Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and her three dragons; Daenerys spends much of season two making her way across the Red Waste in order to launch her own plan of conquest. These central conflicts are supported by a host of secondary storylines, including Alfie Allen's Theon Greyjoy, who is faced with dreadful choices in his own quest to prove his worth, and new cast member Carice van Houten as Melisandre, a priestess who uses a variety of wiles, including sex, to spur Stannis's assault against Joffrey's forces in the series' showstopping set piece, the Battle of Blackwater Bay. That Game of Thrones manages to not only weave together all of these myriad threads but also make them compelling and fully realized is among the keys to the show's astonishing popularity, as are the performances, which, along with the direction and writing, help to make the series the best costume fantasy drama ever produced on television. Its blend of historically inspired intrigue and supernatural elements keeps it far afield of camp territory, where most TV fantasy has bogged down in the past, while the cast, led by the extraordinary Peter Dinklage as the wily Tyrion, rivals any modern day/dress series. Of course, the show's copious violence and sexuality (the latter of which borders on excessive this season) are also key factors, but the visceral nature of these parts mesh well with the show's overall theme of a medieval land gripped by extraordinary bloodshed.

The five-disc DVD set of Game of Thrones' second season provides an exceptional amount of supplemental material on the show's production, primarily through 12 commentary tracks, including multiple tracks on single episodes. Among the participants are the main cast, including Dinklage, Headey, and Coster-Waldau, as well as series cocreators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss; director Neil Marshall (The Descent), who helmed "Blackwater"; and Martin himself, who explains many of the differences between his source novel and the program. The Battle of Blackwater Bay gets its own half-hour making-of featurette, while a quintet of the actors, including Headey and Clarke, participate in an informative roundtable discussion about their characters and the show's locations. Martin also returns for a brief conversation about the various religions of his fictional world along with Benioff and Weiss. Both die-hard fans and first-time viewers will appreciate the length and depth of the extra material included in the set, which expands greatly on the already massive world of Game of Thrones. --Paul Gaita

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, naïve 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 won't say much about the series itself as its acclaim can speak for itself. But this specific release on Blu ray, which comes in a slim plastic case rather than the more bulky cardboard case, is marked as being the same standard Blu-ray release that came out in 2013 with the DTS-MA soundtrack. That's what Amazon says, that's what blu-ray.com says, that's what the packaging says. Yet when I opened it up and put the discs in my blu ray player, I discovered that I had the new release with the Dolby Atmos (True HD 7.1) soundtrack. So either this is a mistake during packaging, or the cover was mis-printed, either way it was a very pleasant surprise. And even without the upgraded soundtrack, the slim case and reduced price are well worth the investment if you don't already own this season.

There is only one reason to buy the steelbook editions of GOT, and that is the Dolby Atmos audio re-mix If you do not have or are not planning on getting an audio system that is Atmos enabled, pass on steelbook. There is no new video content, only Atmos sound. That being said, for those who have or will soon buy an Atmos system this edition is well worth purchasing. The new Atmos audio re- mix is ,quite simply, spectacular. Even with my rudimentary 5.1.2 Atmos system the sound is more immersive than anything I have ever experienced from my home system. Rain sounds like it is falling downward. Overhead sounds sound overhead. It really adds a lot to the enjoyment of the program. The metal case is kind of nice and the collectible magnets look nice. Two relatively minor negatives are really weak magnets which slid down mi fridge when I put them up and a really bad (IMO) system inside the case to hold in the discs. Each disc is stacked, 3 on one side, 2 on the other, on top of each other. This makes them quite difficult to remove. You must bend the discs quite a bit to remove them. The stacking also increases the risk of scratching the discs. I have removed the discs and keep them in a disc storage unit. In conclusion if you have orplan to buy an Atmos system, buy the steelbook edition. If not, don't bother.
