Game of Thrones season 2

TV GUIDE: Matt's TV Week in Review: The Trippy Edition

... More trippiness: I've read the Game of Thrones books, but never imagined the scene of weird priestess Melisandre giving "birth" to her supernatural smoke monster being quite this graphic and terrifying. Forget the night; her womb is "dark and full of terrors." Speaking of horrors, I'd also like to forget the torture method of strapping a bucket to a man's chest with a rat inside, then torching the bucket to force the rat to burrow its way out. I'm almost amazed Horrid King Joffrey hasn't thought of this one yet. But he's too busy getting his palace whores to brutalize each other for his amusement. All things considered, I'd rather be with Daenarys in Qarth, "the greatest city that ever was or will be..."

Game of Thrones season two airs Sunday at 9/8C on HBO.
