Game of Thrones Season 4

Now for Season four which still continues to excel as a series. The Far North story line culminates, at least for the moment, in a single episode battle spectacular that is indeed spectacular. The North story line perhaps is somewhat repetitive of the previous season, but it really does not matter due to just how good Alfie Allen is in his portrayal of Theon/Reek. Also I probably would not really question that story line at all if I did not know where it was headed next season. We get Sansa finally out of King's Landing and we get a fascinating development of her into a shrewd survivor. Again though next season, alright alright I'll get to that in a bit. Again the show really is strong enough at this point that even the Stannis/Davos, story line is interesting to follow despite mostly being build up. Old Daenerys Targaryen continues to be not great, though not every element involved is terrible just most elements are lackluster. Again the good and the great is more than enough to make up for it. The greatness following Arya and the Hound road trip which is amazing and King's Landing which is particularly potent through some deaths and trial. It's terrific and once again it builds so nicely to a satisfying continuation.
