Game of Thrones: Season 2

While this season was entertaining, I'm starting to think I need to evaluate this show on its own merits and not on how faithfully it follows the books.  Season 1 had some deviations and omissions, but Season 2 was only loosely based on the books.  While I appreciate all the titties and female nudity, the violence to nudity ratio was low.  Battles are hinted at and it smells more like cost-cutting than art.  The ones that are shown seem a bit off.

I still recommend this show, but not quite as much as I did during Season 1.

I forgot to mention they've also chosen not to feature the direwolves much and they are a key part of the books. More cost-cutting I guess.
