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 ›
HBO never backs down from portraying borderline questionable themes and scenes with a gritty reality that will make you sit up and gasp at a few of the scenes. It's got its hooks in me like crystal meth.... can't stop this thing we've started....
Deviation from the books continues but is always done both with GRRM's awareness and involvement. He's got a close relationship with the writers and they are keeping true to the TONE and FLAVOUR of the books even where they make changes to the action or timeline. Ultimately the result still serves to bring you forward right where you're supposed to be.
At this point I've stopped reading the books looking for explanations of things and I am taking the series at face value. It's that good. When I go back to the books again later they will dovetail with the show much more logically I am sure.
There is a new packaging design for the third season, it still matches but it's got this translucent plastic slipcase instead of the cardboard one. My OCD wishes it matched identically, but hey.... as long as it's not a big difference I'll be ok.
Same 5 discs with 10 episodes as prior seasons. Still putting fun features on each disc instead of a features disc separately.
If you're reading my review, you want to be convinced to buy it. So go buy it already. You won't be sorry. The only reason not to get DVD is if you get Blu-Ray. Otherwise it's a gem. I just wish I could buy season four already.... the wait is gonna kill me.....
