Very well done. Cutting the plots that don't add much, unnecessary filler etc, to make a film I find easily as entertaining as the original season, if not more.
The only negatives I can remember:
1. In the beginning, the Lannisters, the battle and Jamies' capture, seems chronologically wrong. Jamie is referred to as if he already has been captured, then the aftermath of the battle is shown, then we see Rob return with the captured Jamie.
2. Arya at Harrenhal, I would have liked to've seen more of Arya and Tywin, also the Tickler being killed by Jaquen doesn't seem happen on Arya's orders, so to speak, so why can sho force him to do her bidding later with naming himself. It just doesn't seem clear enough.
The rest, is a brilliantly condensed version of the season, keeping the most important things and skipping the unimportant things, like Dani in this Season, without anything noticebly missing. The editing also has significantly imrpoved over the season 1 edit, which already wasn't bad by any means, but it is even better in this one.
Definitely recommended.

Well. those hours just flew by. A splendid edit and a remarkable feat to condense the entire season to something still coherent. I found this edit to be equally, if not a bit better than, the first one. For someone who doesn't know the series by heart, I could follow what happened and not be lost.

It is quite amazing how well Andreas has made the LotR-music fit. I was skeptic at the beginning, but after two edits, I'm sold and want more. Some scenes grew immensely with the music!

I do still have a gripe with the framing, but it doesn't make it unwatchable. All in all, highly recommended, especially to those who don't necessarily want to sit through the full 10-ish hours. Onward to season 3, Andreas! Please!

I´ve watched this edit in his newest form with the original GoT music and what can i say rather than: What a joy this was :)
I did agree with the narrative criticism of battleghul but that´s now fixed (if i remember correctly). The narrative is well thought throughout and executed.

My only wish would be a 3.0 audio channel as the dialoague sometimes suffocate under the music, but it´s no deal breaker.

Thank you for that!

Excellent edit. I concur with a previous review - this cuts the filler and focuses the Season 2 story very well. It seemed shorter than 3 hours (great pacing!) and left me ready for the Season 3 edit. Can't wait. Great use of LOTR music. I almost wouldn't know this used a different soundtrack.
