    Seriously the best thing I have ever seen on television. The reason I have HBO. If you have not watched this show, please do. Start with the 1st season and watch it all. If you love to watch a tale unfold and get lost in a different world and time you will LOVE this masterpiece!

    An Amazing Show, but Beware The Rains of Castamere., December 21, 2013

    This review is from: Game of Thrones: The Complete Third Season (Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy) (Blu-ray)
    When it comes to premium cable, my worlds shift as the year goes on. For thirteen weeks in the fall, I get Showtime to watch HOMELAND and one of the best new shows on cable, MASTERS OF SEX. But for the rest of the year, I go back to HBO, and while there are many other good and compelling shows on that channel, such as THE NEWSROOM, and less so, TRUE BLOOD, the main reason I keep coming back is for GAME OF THRONES. And Season Three was perhaps the ultimate lesson as to why this show keeps you coming back. I’ve reviewed all of the seasons here, and while I found the first season a little problematic but really good overall, the second season was even better, and it just keeps improving into this season.

    It’s hard to distill everything that happens in this season, and all the new characters and threats that are introduced, so I’ll try to distill it in what I believe are the best moments. Daenerys Targaryen meeting The Unsullied, and her trek in defiance of a “man’s world” is so vital, so strong and never gets stale. Bran meeting Jojen Reed to make sense of what he’s becoming as a warg starts slow but builds extremely well. Jon Snow and Ygritte’s relationship and Jon’s “undercover” work with Mance Rayder’s men is always compelling and suspenseful. The conflict that comes to a head between the Night’s Watch and Craster. The initially antagonistic relationship between Jaime and Brienne comes into sharper focus as they warm up to each other. The plight of Davos and his friendship with Stannis conflicting with the intentions of Melisandre. The wedding of Tyrion and Sansa and the rift that creates with Shae. The interminable cruelty of Joffrey, and how he keeps getting figuratively spanked by Tywin. The Brotherhood Without Banners and the firey combat between The Hound and Beric. The women of the Tyrell family, particularly Olenna. The bear pit. The end of Astapor.

    And then, of course, The Red Wedding.

    I know that of everything that has happened in this season, the most talked-about event is the Red Wedding, and while there are many other important things happening, the episode “The Rains of Castamere” is a horrific, tragic and emotionally devastating event that, for people who are merely fans of the show and not of George R.R. Martin’s epic novels like myself, seemed to come out of nowhere, but going back, you can see it coming with hindsight. It firmly establishes the brutally pragmatic machinations of Twyin and his exploitation of the personal slights felt by Roose Bolton and Walder Frey. Although, while the twists and turns of the Lannisters prove to have the most meat on them, the heart of the season stands firmly with Daenerys. She proves to be not only a brilliant strategist, but a leader that could rule with a merciful and generous heart. The soul of the show belongs to Jon Snow, a young man so clearly over his head in a situation that will force him to question his loyalties and his oath to the Night’s Watch, making him the stand-in for the audience.

    As usual, everyone in the show is pretty amazing, but most surprising of all is the turn from Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister. It took a while for the audience to connect with him, particularly when his first significant deed of the show was to push Bran out of a window. But this season, more layers of the onion are peeled back to show that there is much more to him than what we’ve seen before, which makes me very happy since his was the character that I couldn’t get with at all for quite some time. Emilia Clarke continues to amaze with her performance as the Mother of Dragons, and Charles Dance totally owns you (and everyone else around him) as Tywin Lannister. Wisely, the show decided to show much more of what was going on around the kingdoms, and not to devote too much focus to the conflict between the Starks and Lannisters.

    So bring on the White Walkers. Winter is coming and I’m ready.

    At least, I hope I’m ready.

    Review of Limited Edition Dracarys Mantel, February 19, 2014
    By

    Hello Amazon,

    Note: This review pertains only to the limited edition bonus mantel of Daenerys’ dragon, “Dracarys,” not to the actual television series.

    Amazon has certainly posted a hyped-up review of this limited edition bonus mantel, and I almost turned into the “Mad King” Aerys II Targaryen while waiting for it to arrive on my doorstep. The packaging fed into my hysteria, unfortunately, as it arrived in a ridiculously over-sized box, which contained the smaller box that housed the actual item. After ravaging the packaging with tooth and claw, I couldn’t have been more disappointed with the actual mantel, which drove me into a double madness and led to the review you see before you.

    Amazon informs you that the Dracarys mantel is “created in durable heavy weight material,” is “highly textured,” and is “finished with a weathered look evoking the feel of Westeros and a bygone era.” Yes, the “bygone era” of sound craftsmanship – not of Westeros. The “durable heavy weight material,” while looking sleek from a great distance, feels like cheap plastic. Although the wings of the dragon are done well, albeit extremely fragile, Dracarys’ face, upon closer inspection, is completely lacking in texture and rather looks like a kindergarten Play-Doh project. With my mantel, the eyes are lacking any coloring (which gives the impression that this dragon is eyeless), and there are two or thee randomly placed teeth jutting uncannily from its mouth. Even worse is the fact that the Game of Thrones logo seems hurriedly painted (and smudged) in more than one place.

    If you “make room on your mantel for this one-of-a-kind packaging” a small breeze, let alone a strong wind of winter, will knock the top off of the base, as the hidden compartment which houses the complete third season, has no locking mechanism for the base/mantel whatsoever.

    “With a wink to fans, the back is engraved with “Dracarys”, a word from the Valyrian language playing homage to wildfires and dragons.” That wink is all you will receive in terms of “homage,” unfortunately, unless you are a diehard collector of Game of Thrones collectibles.To be fair, it is quite difficult to justify an additional $60.00 for this mantel over the cost of the standard Blu-ray/DVD/Digital edition.

    Although I highly doubt G.R.R. Martin would be pleased with this product, the best part of this limited edition is, of course, the enchanting television program. I hope this review helps fans seeking the bonus. Game on!
