Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 2

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (19)

The second season has more fantasy elements than the first, but otherwise it's largely more of the same.

I'll speak plainly: It's bloody fantastic

Full Review… | February 7, 2014

If you thought the world of Game of Thrones was incredibly vast and complex and festooned with a crazy multitude of characters, brace yourself for Season 2.

Contra Costa Times

While Game of Thrones is steadily expanding-just look at the new pit stop on the map flyover in the credits-"The North Remembers" began hustling off steadily and confidently.

Top Critic

Because of the limits set within the books, the screenwriters have to choose how to make the most out of every line written. For just 10 hours this season, I don't envy them, and yet it's fascinating watching it unfold.

TV Fanatic

The season 2 finale did justice to nearly every character and subplot, and it tied them all together under a unified thematic umbrella that gave significant weight and meaning to every part of this vast, wide-ranging fantasy epic.

The second season gets even more epic.

Super Reviewer


Continues the excellent writting, acting and action set pieces that the first Season introduced, with even more intricate betrayls and characters that might change the game at every turn. It's ruthless, violent, exciting and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Season 2 brings more thrill and excitement to the show with new characters and bold directions. The battle of the Blackwater bay was the best thing I've seen.
