The battle amongst the families of the Seven Kingdoms continues along its ruthless and blood soaked path. All the elements of a good story are there with betrayal, the struggle for power, victories, disputes, reunions, madness, heartache and drama making it a very watchable series. Though there are many characters each one is so richly developed and interesting that you won’t mind it a bit.
A huge, huge television series. Not only in regards to popularity but also in scope. Everything is big about the show based on the series of novels by author George R.R. Martin. A wise decision was made in regards to dividing the third book A Storm of Swords into two seasons. The decision has worked out in that this is a very strong collection of episodes. Everything is clicking – cinematography, writing, acting, costumes, sets and production design are all right on the mark. Has definitely solidified its place amongst the strongest television shows on right now.
