Game of Thrones: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray)

Excerpt: It is a time of great upheaval in Westeros. Wicked young Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson, Batman Begins ) has seized the throne, and is quickly proving himself to be a foolish and unmerciful ruler. Though Joffrey's mother Cercei Lannister (Lena Headey, Dredd ) has long wanted her son to rule, she is quietly troubled by his behavior and begins to question her efforts to put Joffrey in power.
Excerpt: Delving into the fantasy genre inherently means you have to do something special to earn your audience, because anything that involves magic or mythical creatures will be instantly perceived as a key to dorkdom. The very word - fantasy - is likely to conjure images of pimple-faced teens sitting at a table, stuffing their faces with pizza while slingin' polyhedral dice.
Conclusion: 'Game of Thrones: The Complete Second Season' continues to follow the high standards set in season one. A sprawling fantasy epic focused on seedy politics, hair-raising action, richly detailed characters, and powerful themes, the series is among the best the television medium has to offer. The video transfers and audio mixes are reference quality, once again seamlessly transporting the audience to Westeros.

Summary: It's safe to say there's never been a television series like Game of Thrones . TV fantasy tends to fall into one of two camps: cheap, campy and surprisingly enduring or frugal, serious and short-lived. Either way, fantasy shows also tend to fall, be it by way of dwindling creative returns, waning interest or network ax.
