Game of Thrones
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.

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.

A fantastic production. Terrific drama/writing, characters/cast, visuals. Everything. Episode nine COMPLETELY blew me away with some developments I *never* expected. It's tough waiting for the next season. FIVE STARS.

The Freys really know how to throw a wedding party. I must really NEVER attend one. Maybe a Lannister wedding would be safer. Then on second thought, maybe NOT.

The third season of Game of Thrones does not disappoint! The suspense, politics, love, lust, and power rage strong in this season. The ever present nudity and violence is constant. You can't help but root for so many characters to succeed (getting attached to Jaime Lannister) and so many others to die (Joffrey, please).

More bloodshed, political intrigue and battles among gritty depictions of the human struggle for power. The plot, based on "A Storm of Swords: A Song of Ice and Fire" thickens and getting closer to somewhere as the much tested dragon mom, Daenerys Targaryen, is poised to regain prominence in the realm -- UNLESS ...

The struggle for power continues in the third season of Game of Thrones. Much of the action takes place in King's Landing featuring plenty of plots, lies and betrayals. Jaime Lannister and Arya Stark are both en route to reunite with their families and Bran Stark and his group are heading north to The Wall in hopes of reuniting with Jon Snow. Daenerys Targaryen and her three dragons mount two successful sieges adding thousands of soldiers to her army. In the north Jon Snow reluctantly joins forces with the Wildlings. There are several major developments and surprises in the north including the dire news that the White Walkers are heading south.

Like most cable-based dramas, this show is heavy in sex, with scenes of graphic violence and politics thrown in. What makes this show stand out is how engrossing the characters themselves become. Also interesting is how the children of the show are treated as important characters rather than background props. Overall, I've far more interested in the show than I expected to be and look forward to season 2.

Jorah Mormont: Have you ever seen a war in which innocents didn't die by the thousands? [Barristan remains silent, but shakes his head] I was in King's Landing after the sack, Khaleesi. You know what I saw? Butchery. Babies, children, old men, more women raped than you can count. There's a beast in every man, and it stirs when you put a sword in his hand...but the Unsullied are not men. They do not rape, they do not put cities to the sword unless they're ordered to do so. If you buy them, the only men they'll kill are those you want dead. [Barristan scoffs]
Daenerys Targaryen: You disagree, Ser Barristan?
Barristan Selmy: When your brother Rhaegar led his army into battle at the Trident, men died for him because they believed in him, because they loved him, not because they'd been bought at a slaver's auction. I fought beside the last dragon on that day, your Grace. I bled beside him.
Jorah Mormont: Rhaegar fought valiantly, Rhaegar fought nobly...and Rhaegar died.

From TV series: Tywin Lannister: What do you want, Tyrion?-----
Tyrion Lannister: Why does everyone assume I want something? Can't I simply visit with my beloved father? My beloved father who somehow forgot to visit his wounded son after he fell on the battlefield.
Tywin Lannister: Jugglers and singers require applause. You are a Lannister. Do you think I demanded a garland of roses every time I suffered a wound on a battlefield? Hmm? Now, I have seven kingdoms to look after and three of them are in open rebellion. So tell me what you want.

From book: “Tywin: And you want your own reward, is that it? Very well. What is it you would 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 ...” - See
