George R.R. Martin's A Game of Thrones returns to HBO tonight, kicking off season 2 in what will no doubt be sex filled, blood soaked, rip-roaring style. Winter is still coming (something those of us in Canada understand all too well -- the wall looks like our driveways in January!), politics is still being played, armies are marching, and... there be dragons.
While the new season is exclusive to HBO (or similar channels internationally), you can still catch up on the first season, and enjoy all the books, on your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad right now.
Game of Thrones Season 1
The HBO production of A Games of Thrones is simply gorgeous, especially on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad Retina display, or in 1080p on the new Apple TV. The full first season is available on iTunes and includes not only the 10 episodes proper, but a bunch of special features as well.
Even if you don't want to buy the season, you can grab six free specials about the various great houses of Westros.
