    "The Wolf and the Lion" continues the trend of okay, yet unspectacular, episodes of Game of Thrones. I still prefer Showtime's middle ages drama The Borgias to this, but the HBO series does have some fine acting and some nice action from time to time that make the show worth watching. This show focuses more on the relationships among these different groups of people than that program does, but more often than not that does not translate to great TV. This was a solid hour, but for that reason I mentioned it really has not lived up to the hype. When there is not a big climatic moment, the episodes tend to be fairly mediocre, like this one was.
