Game of Thrones Returns!

Fans of George R.R. Martin's books and of the HBO series based upon them can rejoice tonight, as HBO launches the first episodes of Season Two.

Like any series with long books, this fantasy suffered the loss of many details in the re-telling for the screen, but the ultimate product is stylish, beautiful, and compelling. One of my favorite characters, Daenerys Targaryen, is played by the relatively unknown Emilia Clarke, who brings the perfect blend of beauty and fierceness to the role of the Dragon Queen.

I am excited about the new season; I'm still flying my sigil for House Stark, but I have my favorites in other houses. :)
