Re: Game of Thrones: Season 3. TV Series Discussion. NO BOOK SPOILERS...NONE
I suppose it depends how you view the story; to me it's very character driven and explores the politics & relationships in their lives in the context of the war for the throne. I can see why someone else may view it solely as the 'game of thrones' and what's important is who's sitting on the Iron Throne and the progress on how they get there. Different strokes, and that.
The bigger picture (war, picking sides, becoming king etc) is a huge draw of the story, but without the strong characters the show would fall flat and become generic fantasy - and the one thing you can't complain about this season is character development, IMO
