Preferences differ. I realize it is very popular with a huge fanboy following. I just wanted to give the opposite view since it is the view I personally hold.
Like I said, I thought season one was brilliant and it prompted me to read the books because I enjoyed it so much. But ... but I think season 2 just doesn't translate well to TV because it has too many moving parts. This thing has a lot of simultaneous story lines which means some must be rushed, some forgotten or glossed over, some streamlined and many don't get the attention they really warrant. That's why the Blackwater episode was so good. Because it was focused and was given full attention for a full episode. Other than that though I have found every other episode this season to be disappointing. I can't imagine non-readers of the book enjoying this much at all.
