Game of Thrones: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray)
20 February 2013
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.
Summary: While I've kept plot details for the second season to a minimum, please be aware that there are some major spoilers for the show's first season. Be sure to check out our review for season one .
Game of Thrones: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray Review
6 February 2013
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.
