I am really excited for Season 2 to start. The teaser didn't give us too mush to go on but at least we are going to be getting to watch it soon. I am still bummed about seeing Ned’s head on a stake, but everyone must meet their fate at some point. They just seem to do it a lot quicker in Mr. Martin’s books, as long as Tyrian Lanister is alive I will enjoy watching, he is one of the best characters in the show so far, but the whole cast takes the show to a high level, and that makes for a good show along with the filming. I think HBO will do the same job they did on the first season; we should have another outstanding season of Game of Thrones to look forward too this year. I liked having HBO GO available to me last year, working nights at DISH it made it easy so I could stay caught up on the show since they put them out right after the show airs. But now I will be able to access it as using my DISH Remote Access app to watch it on demand for season 2.
