This little trick of jiggering storylines so we're getting to the most exciting stuff straight off makes the whole series move with a muscularity and confidence it sometimes lacked at the start of season one.

The pieces are moving into place and, thankfully, the game isn't simply back. It's finally on.

It's remarkable how much gets packed in, and how much the show can get across in the brief time it spends with its many, many characters.

'The North Remembers' was an excellent way to kick off the season, using a ominous, glowing comet to connect our characters, both old and new.

Overall, "The North Remembers" did an excellent job reintroducing us to all of Game of Thrones' varying plotlines... while also managing to move each story, and character, forward.

"The North Remembers" is a very good, highly efficient but not exactly great first episode for the highly anticipated return of HBO's Game of Thrones.

The most exciting thing about the season-two premiere of Game of Thrones is its refreshing sense of focus.
