The epic scope of the grand television fantasy series Game of Thrones is matched by the extraordinary wealth of extras found in its sophomore-season set. Based on A Clash of Kings, the second novel in George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series, season two of Game of Thrones admirably encapsulates the sprawling War of the Five Kings, which pits the malevolent Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) against a host of contenders for the throne of the late King Robert (Mark Addy), including his brothers Stannis (Stephen Dillane) and Renly (Gethin Anthony). Further complicating matters is the appointment of Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) as Hand of the King to Joffrey, which sets off an intense behind-the-scenes power struggle with his siblings, Cersei (Lena Headey) and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who carry on an incestuous affair. Meanwhile, there's also the issue of Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and her three dragons; Daenerys spends much of season two making her way across the Red Waste in order to launch her own plan of conquest. These central conflicts are supported by a host of secondary storylines, including Alfie Allen's Theon Greyjoy, who is faced with dreadful choices in his own quest to prove his worth, and new cast member Carice van Houten as Melisandre, a priestess who uses a variety of wiles, including sex, to spur Stannis's assault against Joffrey's forces in the series' showstopping set piece, the Battle of Blackwater Bay. That Game of Thrones manages to not only weave together all of these myriad threads but also make them compelling and fully realized is among the keys to the show's astonishing popularity, as are the performances, which, along with the direction and writing, help to make the series the best costume fantasy drama ever produced on television. Its blend of historically inspired intrigue and supernatural elements keeps it far afield of camp territory, where most TV fantasy has bogged down in the past, while the cast, led by the extraordinary Peter Dinklage as the wily Tyrion, rivals any modern day/dress series. Of course, the show's copious violence and sexuality (the latter of which borders on excessive this season) are also key factors, but the visceral nature of these parts mesh well with the show's overall theme of a medieval land gripped by extraordinary bloodshed.

The five-disc DVD set of Game of Thrones' second season provides an exceptional amount of supplemental material on the show's production, primarily through 12 commentary tracks, including multiple tracks on single episodes. Among the participants are the main cast, including Dinklage, Headey, and Coster-Waldau, as well as series cocreators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss; director Neil Marshall (The Descent), who helmed "Blackwater"; and Martin himself, who explains many of the differences between his source novel and the program. The Battle of Blackwater Bay gets its own half-hour making-of featurette, while a quintet of the actors, including Headey and Clarke, participate in an informative roundtable discussion about their characters and the show's locations. Martin also returns for a brief conversation about the various religions of his fictional world along with Benioff and Weiss. Both die-hard fans and first-time viewers will appreciate the length and depth of the extra material included in the set, which expands greatly on the already massive world of Game of Thrones. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive sophomore effort Nov. 19 2012
By Derek Draven TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
The first season of HBO's Game Of Thrones took its time to flesh out the complex assortment of characters that has made the book series by George R.R. Martin such a tremendous hit. With its mature content, twisting storylines and incredible shock value, Game Of Thrones solidified itself as one of the highest-rated dramatic series on cable. The much-anticipated second season was a lot more ambitious, and built on the rich mythology of the first season by introducing a slew of new characters, locales, and of course...constricting tales of deception, murder and sin.

*SPOILERS AHEAD*
----------------
Following the events of season one, the sadistic young Joffrey has taken the Iron Throne after Robert's death, and the execution of Eddard Stark. This sets in motion a tremendously chaotic chain of events with several individuals openly challenging the Lannister family for the throne. At the epicenter of the storm is Robb Stark, who has taken up the mantle of his father and declared open war on Joffrey and the Lannister house for the execution of his father. Meanwhile, young Daenerys Targaryen leads her faithful Dothraki through the desert in search of an army that can lead her back to her homeland to reclaim the Iron Throne. The news of her three recently hatched dragons spreads like wildfire, and she soon finds herself the target of untrustworthy eyes who seek to use her and her dragons for their own ends. The young Daenerys is forced to adapt to a world of lies, deceit, and betrayal if she intends to lay claim as a ruler. In the midst of these key players is Tyrion Lannister, constantly spinning webs of manipulation in order to solidify his status as nothing less than the Hand of the King himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game of Thrones: The Complete Second Season March 22 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Are you kidding me!?! What's not to like about Game of Thrones? This has got to be one of the best mini-series that we have ever watched. Excellent acting; excellent costumes; excellent scenery; excellent plot line; great continuity between episodes and series - not easy. Love.Love.Love.

If there were 10 stars I'd be selecting this option!

watching the second season was as enjoyable as the first season, lots of intrigue and fantasy one never know who is going to betray who next and again such brilliant acting cannot wait to purchase third season when it comes out but will wait till it goes down in price a bit unless amazon has a special sale on it.

First off, let me say I really like the high quality packaging for the show, both 1 and 2 have been very good quality, and fine to look at. There are also actual special features (which now seem to be an afterthought unless you upgrade to Blu-Ray - which I would be OK with for this show) which are nice when you are like me, and go through the whole season in a weekend and are then starving for more Westeros.
As for the show itself, the action is great, the acting is super (esp. Peter Dinklage) and the production quality is through the roof.
The Blackwater episode alone stands out as one of the greatest hours of television ever presented.

Cannot wait for Feb when Season 3 is released to disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars "There's A King in Every Corner Now." Feb. 26 2013
By Webber
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First off, may I say that I did not expect the DVD to be shipped and delivered in such a speady fashion. As unaware I was of it's sudden delivery, I was all the more overjoyed and watched it back-to-back immediately. Now as for the DVD:

I watched every episode on television ever Sunday night last year in March. I was well aware of the story and of the events that lasted 10 episodes that made season one: 10 intense and extremley well-crafted episodes. The talented creators and on and off-screen artists have brought to television something so beautiful and creative it's in a league of its own. Yet watching it again after a year it seems I had forgotten how great 'Game of Thrones' truly is; how the acts and the determination of the returning characters has established the entire series into and all-out clash; how each new cast member has amazingly portrayed a singular character on screen which has defined them as of this ongoing program; and how I, as imagine millions as well, cannot wait for the follow-up of Game of Thrones.

As for the DVD set as a whole, very sleek and crisp; byt that I mean it has the same set up as the DVD set for season 1 with portraits of most of the main cast, a helpful episode guide booklet (which folds out into a map of the whole of Westeros) and of course a cool and detailed case to hold it all together. It is very good to see that it has the same structure and style as the first season DVD set, for I find uniformity and consistency is very fashionable. I have not yet watched all of the extras and such, for I am far too busy enjoying the 50 minute long episodes themselves! But I am sure that the behind-the-scenes and commentaries are worth the watch as well.

I finish this review and can't help but be thrilled and delighted.
