Based on the best-selling book series by George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones is an epic drama set in the grounded fantasy continent of Westeros, where ambitious men and women of both honor and ill-repute live in a land where summers and winters can last years. Season 2 plays out against the backdrop of a fast-approaching winter – the season of the white raven. In King’s Landing, the coveted Iron Throne is occupied by cruel young Joffrey, counseled by his conniving mother Cersei and uncle Tyrion, who has been appointed Hand of the King. But the Lannister hold on the Throne is under assault on many fronts. There’s Robb Stark, son of the slain Lord of Winterfell, Ned Stark, who seeks autonomy in the North and has taken Cersei’s brother Jaime prisoner in battle; Daenerys Targaryen, who looks to shore up her depleted power in the east through three newborn dragons; Stannis Baratheon, eldest brother of the late King Robert, who rejects Joffrey’s legitimacy and aligns with a powerful priestess to raise a naval attack; and Stannis’ brother Renly, who has maintained his own claim since fleeing King’s Landing. In the meantime, a new leader is rising among the wildlings North of the Wall, adding new perils for Jon Snow and the order of the Night’s Watch. With tensions and treaties, animosity and alliances, Season 2 of Game of Thrones is a thrilling journey through a riveting, unforgettable fictional landscape.

— MULTIPLE COPIES —
You technically get three different copies of the series:
1) Blu-ray (physical discs)
2) UltraViolet 1080p HD version (digital copy, HD only available on some devices)
3) iTunes 1080p HD version (digital copy)
The digital code gives you two digital versions (which is rare, and appreciated).
— STEELBOOK and MAGNET —
This steelbook has artwork designed by Elastic, the agency that created the Emmy Award-winning opening credits, and has a magnet on the cover that can be removed and used as a regular magnet, or left on to show off as a collector's piece. Each season represents one of the major houses of the series, and this season two steelbook represents House Lannister of King's Landing with its Gold Lion sigil on the magnet [see photos]. The steelbook is in a matching decorative plastic outer case that holds the magnet in place so it doesn't scratch the steelbook. Depending on how this was shipped, this plastic may or may not be cracked as I've seen a lot of cracked plastic cases with the steelbook intact.
— THE SHOW —
The show is great—in acting, in storytelling, in visuals, in music, and in writing. I've watched everything at least three times, and there are so many new things you see when re-watching, and with the knowledge of future episodes. The second season continues by showing the aftermath of the game-changing first season, which I will not spoil. It has some amazing character chemistry and interactions you would not expect to see, and if you pay attention to what they're saying, you will be glad when the payoff comes. The season ends with an exhilarating battle (now that HBO gave them the budget). "OMG, geesus, that was exciting," was what one friend recently said.
I have converted many friends who previously used to think this was about "dungeons and dragons and lord of the rings," (like I did) who are now *all* addicted to the show. If you don't already know, this show isn't about what you think it may be about.
This is currently THE only good show on television, and if you don't like it, you probably don't understand good television (sorry, not sorry). It has been the number one torrented show in every single year since it came out for a reason (which is a blessing and curse for the producers). After watching this, everything else on TV becomes: "why I am watching all these other crappy shows?"
This is one of those series that I will buy the individual season sets, and whatever big box set comes out in the future. GAME OF THRONES! Recommended.
As far as the story content of season two, it may or may not be the equal of season one, but it certainly is not a letdown to me. Additional characters and locations are introduced into the mix, and the visual scope and scale of Game of Thrones continues to be breathtaking. It's easy to get excited and say "this is the best ever" but I cannot recall ever having seen something this vastly epic and richly woven outside of a movie theater.
The one thing that motivated me to write this, when there are already literally thousands of other five-star reviews, is the final scene of the final episode of this season. Absolutely...I do not even know what word to use. Extremely powerful, let's say. I was wondering if anything could top "the reveal scene with Daenerys" from season one. Yes, it could and it does. This season may not be completely perfect in every single way, but it's still so far beyond virtually anything else that exists in its medium that it gets the highest marks from me, here.
