Synopsis:
In this thrilling fourth season based on George R.R. Martin's bestselling books, the Lannisters' control over the Iron Throne remains intact, but can they survive their own egos as well as the ongoing threats around them? While an unshaken Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army on Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister- loathing "Red Viper of Dome", arrives at King's Landing to attend Joffrey's wedding. At the Wall, the Night's Watch seems over-matched against Mance Rayder's advancing army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe.
What's more, Daenerys Targaryen, accompanied by her fierce trio of dragons and an Unsullied army, is poised to "liberate" Meereen, the largest Slaver City in the east, which could provide her with an imposing force to execute her ultimate plan of reclaiming the Iron Throne for her family.

Reviews (3) of Game of Thrones: Series 4

More epic medieval fantasy - still great, but a few weaknesses this time - Game of Thrones: Series 4 review by RP

Spoiler Alert
08/03/2015

I came late to watching 'Game of Thrones' and overdosed on the box sets of Seasons 1, 2 and 3 one after the other. I didn't watch any of Season 4 on TV and deliberately waited for the set on disc so that I could immerse myself again. And I have [although, perhaps as it's just been released (February 2015) there were gaps of a few days between mailings from Cinema Paradiso to receive the complete set] - the same format as before of 10 x (approx) 1 hour episodes. So, does it continue the high standard of the earlier seasons?

Well, it's more of the same - same / similar characters (there are of necessity a few new ones, previously ones having been bumped off), same plotting, double crossing and treachery, same nudity and bogus sex scenes, same f-ing and blinding. And of course the same fine variety of slaughtering, stabbing, axing, poisoning, flaying, burning, head crushing, general dismemberment and other assorted killings.

Much as in season 2 which had a mighty battle in episode 9, there's a rather good one here - also in episode 9. And episode 10 has a few surprises as old scores are settled, surplus characters bumped off, and (of course) ending on an intriguing hook for the next season.

However, some of the early episodes are more like a costume soap opera than medieval fantasy and the dialogue is simplistic and frankly, poor. The quality between episodes varies from below average to really excellent - given the high standard that went before, it must be difficult to keep it up.

The detail is amazing, the photography and special effects excellent, the production values high, the acting generally good and the storyline epic - overlong perhaps, but then so is the series of books. I enjoyed it, but this time there are a few weaknesses on show. If you enjoy epic medieval fantasy you should continue to enjoy it - there's yet more to come and I trust it's not running out of steam. Let's hope it doesn't degenerate into a simplistic, if adult, fairy tale...

I rated the earlier seasons 5/5 stars. I'll give this one 4/5.

game of thrones - Game of Thrones: Series 4 review by CC

Spoiler Alert
04/08/2018

I was aware of the success of Game of Thrones and looked forward to seeing the first disc. I found the ubridled violence distasteful. Where was the artistry? What made this so popular? I will continue with the next disc to see if my judgement is hasty. If not, I will return the disc and not venture further into this saga.
