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.

I read all the books, loved them, and the DVD series are really good too, awesome acting,

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.

This is an intriguing series that takes hold and won't let got. I found myself turning away at the most violent scenes. It's one thing to read about violence, but to see it...well, The series deserves many of the accolades, but it's strong stuff. I didn't think there was anyone more cruel than Joffrey until this season's characters. I'm waiting with cringing anticipation for the next series.

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

It is rare for a great book series to be made into a great TV series, but Game of Thrones (A Song Of Ice And Fire) is doing it.
The books and the movies are not identical: they are different mediums so expect unimportant differences - but the tale told either way goes far beyond the simple Quest For The Maguffin that characterized earlier fantasy. See the videos and read the books!

I got goosebumps (and almost started crying!!) when Daenerys Targaryen got her dragon back (as well as the loyalty of a new army). Great scene. But it did take 4 episodes to get there. Every time Michelle Fairley's Catelyn Stark character comes onscreen I cringe - she's such a downer and reminds me of how bad this show can get. Sometimes there's just too much warring and fornicating. Otherwise, it's a combination of 'I,Claudius', 'Lord of the Rings' and several other fantasy films - but it's almost always better than any of those. Diana Rigg is superb as Lady Olenna, doing her best Katherine Hepburn Eleanor of Aquitaine impression (from 'The Lion in Winter').

Spoiler alert: it is sad How Jon Snow had to give up his love and the sad disarray of the Stark family. But at least happier endings are panning out for Daenerys Targaryen. May The Mother of Dragons sit on the iron throne!

Excellent series. It is much better to watch on DVD. Helps keep everything in context. I am looking forward to Season 4.

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.
