Binge: Short period of time devoted to indulging to excess.

Game of Thrones: A Drama show on HBO based on novels by George R.R. Martin.

HBO: HOME BOX OFFICE is an American company that is a satellite t.v. network, & provides premium cable. The network is known for explicit & controversial content. Also, instead of passing commercials for, say, deodorant, they show behind the scene content and promote other HBO shows.

This review will be done as though there are no books. This will be as short opinion piece strictly about the show. This will not be a comparison piece or a “they should have” piece. I will be do a piece where I dissect the execution of the novels once Game of Thrones has run it’s course.

No spoilers.

Season 2 flowed into season 3 very well. I went to pause an episode while lamenting being unable to finish up the season, I realized I was in season 3. Season 2 blended very well with season 3. Season 1 & 2 felt clunky between the season finale and the first episode.

Season 2 has a lot of buildup with almost no pay out. A few chess pieces were moved around, I’m sure they are leading somewhere good, but it might still be a slow burn yet. The show does well with the time skips (though you wouldn’t notice them if they weren’t mentioned or if you are unaware how long travel took in the middle ages). Favorite character was The Acting Hand of the King. The biggest thing this season is that magic is  “back” in the world. Seeing what that entails id interesting.
