Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones Season 2

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (19)

Game of Thrones is absurd in its ambition and scope.

Sep 16, 2013 | Full Review…

Once you sort out all the teams and players, Game of Thrones falls together like a good Western.

Apr 1, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Game of Thrones nonetheless is an undertaking worth applauding for its audacity if not always for its overall senses of direction or cohesion.

Apr 1, 2012 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

TV's best (but do your homework before diving in).

Apr 1, 2012 | Rating: A+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

That Thrones remains so utterly unpredictable makes it even more mesmerizing.

Apr 1, 2012 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Peter Dinklage's Tyrion is the series' MVP, but there's not a single character without meat on their bones. Unless you count the White Walkers.

Nov 1, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Game of Thrones gets off to a fantastic start with its second season premiere.

Apr 11, 2019 | Full Review…

[Game of Thrones] is a great political epic, in which the nature of power and government is questioned, over and over again, and it's left to the audience to come up with its own disquieting answers.

May 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Season 2 of Game of Thrones gets more expansive, even literally - it covers more ground, roams new corners of the kingdom, even introduces new characters.

May 14, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Feb 7, 2014 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 26, 2013 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

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

Audience Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 2

  • May 23, 2020
    Most overrated show of all time I was waiting for some character or even just some welly filmed action but never got either in all of these seasons
  • May 15, 2020
    an improvement from its predecessor for sure, but this time it feels a little slower which may or may not be good.
  • Apr 22, 2020
    continues to be fucking amazing
  • Apr 21, 2020
    Desde el primer capítulo hasta el final de temporada te mantiene al filo del asiento.
  • Apr 21, 2020
    Even if u hated the ending this is by far the greatest show of all time. Each episode keeps u on the edge of your seat. Never have i ever heard as many people talk about whats gunna happen next week. There was just a lot of people upset because they didn't get what they want but that is what the whole show was, you never got what u wanat
  • Mar 15, 2020
    An embarrassment of riches. I may have preferred the first season over the second, but only by a hair. Near flawless storytelling, writing, acting, cinematography, set design ...everything on every level for a sophomore entry in television period. 9.6/10
  • Mar 06, 2020
    How can a show be that much affective!ep9 and ep10 was amazing speechless as hell!literally the moment of time at ep9 ending i was literaly blown away!music is damn great!best season for sure!
  • Feb 29, 2020
    The scenes between Arya and Tywin, really amazing. I love this season with all my heart. It had a gripping story that was full of intrigue and added, expanded, more of my favorite characters in the whole show. The ending to this season was also spectacular and very well done. The writing gets even better. There's honestly not much that I can say besides it being an extremely well done tv show.
  • Feb 09, 2020
    Not as Good AS the First one, but still entertaining. Great characters, Production, Design. One Epic battle
