In the third season of the HBO hit drama series Game of Thrones, the Lannisters barely hold on to the throne after a savage naval onslaught from Stannis Baratheon, while stirrings in the north threaten to alter the overall balance of power. Robb Stark, King in the North, faces major calamity in his efforts to build on his victories over the Lannisters while beyond the Wall, Mance Rayder and his huge army of wildlings continue their inexorable march south. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen- reunited with her three fast-maturing dragons- attempts to raise an army to sail with her from Essos, in hopes of eventually claiming the Iron Throne. In Season 3 of this original series based on George R. R. Martin's bestselling books, the battling families of Westeros continue to clash as bonds are strained, loyalties are tested, and cruel fates are met.

parts are really good and part are just dribble, the different stories going on a the same time makes the series, but the exploitation of the female cast is terrible. Odd how none of the male actors had to full nudity only the females. The sets are great, the costumes great, but I can't get into the pedophiles that are always popping up in this series, or the promotion of incest. Just tacky.

It's hard to get back into the first few episodes, but I binged-watched the last four in one shot. As always, the production is extremely high with beautiful sceneries, an amazing cast and gorgeous costumes. However, if you haven't read the books, it might be very hard to follow along at some points.

There are so many attractive things about this series--the characters, the settings. the intricate plot, the costuming--that I am partly inclined to give it a pass with respect to its scenes of graphic violence and coercive sexuality. However, the directors' persistent focus on, say, dead bodies of beautiful naked women, spurting gore, close-ups of shaven female pubises, and quasi-titillating rape/torture scenes is both calculating and prurient.

Nickolaj Coster-Waldau and Gwendoline Christie (Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth, respectively) do an excellent job. Peter Dinklage has great acting chops and has created a muy simpatico version of Tyrion. Unfortunately, he has a very uncertain command of the approximately British accent he's been asked to assume.

Lena Headey (Cersei) always looks stunning, but is capable of only two facial expressions. Number one is a sort of blank-faced pensiveness that's a universal indicator of sorrow, boredom, fear, and anger. Number two is a (generally inappropriate) half-smile. The actress or the director may consider this look mysterious and alluring, but I would be more inclined to attribute it to the side effects of Botox.

Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) mopes about on-screen without ever making an impression apart from her prettiness; not her fault, really, as that is all the dimension that George Martin and the directors have allowed her. Maisie Williams did well in the first and second seasons, but her portrayal seems to have crystallized into a monolithic interpretation of Arya Stark as child Nemesis. I hope that she has more latitude of expression in future episodes.

Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is somewhat offensively portrayed as the great white hope of the Westerosi equivalent to Africa. She spends a lot of time looking self-consciously noble, fiery, and compassionate. One would think that at least one native of the continent could scrape up the spirit and resources to lead a revolution without needing a white-skinned platinum blonde foreigner as a figurehead.

My quarrel with this series is the same as my quarrel with the books: Martin has sensationalized all the foullest aspects of the Middle Ages. He makes his characters wallow in the muck, perhaps even more so than the real-life inhabitants of the medieval era had to. He and HBO pander to those in the audience who slaver for a little (or a lot) of salacious cruelty in every chapter. But will I stop reading and watching? I will not, because damn them, they tell a good story.

This is where the show really hit its stride. There's much more plot development than in Season 2 and although this season still featured nudity, it felt far less gratuitous and risible than in the past. HBO seems to have finally got the memo that a show so thoroughly compelling doesn't need to sacrifice its credibility for the sake of titilization. Of course, it can't be ignored that this season featured the show's most powerful and talked about episode which overshadowed the fact that the season finale was by far the most satisfying of any of the season's so far. And the best thing about season 3 is that the increase in quality seen in its best episodes carried-over to the entirety of season 4 which in overall quality surpassed the very high mark set by this season.

Wow, this just keeps getting better and better. The one thing you do learn about this series is NOT TO GET TOO ATTACHED TO ANY CHARACTER. Can't wait to watch season four.

kevfarley Aug 14, 2014

Great series.

Well worth the long wait.
I agree that its best to watch it on DVD.
If possible, see several episodes in a row at one time,
... Its like living in another world !!

DARN ! ... now I have to wait for Season 4.

Was the Season 2 finale, really the season 3 finale ? Great acting. Where is this story going ? Have to tune in next season.

I believe Daenerys Targaryen is presidential material.She's my favorite character.Don't get me wrong, All the actors and actresses are all very good. Especially the evil teen king Joffery.What a creep.I liked when the dwarf and his father put Joffery in his place at the conference table.I wasn't expecting the wedding slaughter at such a joyous event.Many twists and turns to keep you wanting more.

(One of the first things Daenerys had done after the fall of Astapor was abolished the custom of giving the Unsullied new slave names ... they were free free to return to their birth names or called themselves after heroes or ... Grey Worm, the leader overwhelmingly chosen by the Unsullied themselves, had remained Grey Worm.) When she, Daenerys, asked him why, "It is a lucky name. The name this one was born to was accursed. That was the name he had when he was taken for a slave. But Grey Worm is the name this one drew the day Daenerys Stormborn set him free.

Tywin: And you want your own reward, is that it? Very well. What is it you w0uld have of me? Lands, castle, some office?" ---- Tyrion: A little bloody gratitude would make a nice start. --- Tywin: Mummers and monkeys require applause. So did Aerys, for that matter. You did as you were commanded, and I am sure it was to the best of your ability. No one denies the part you played ...
