Editorial Reviews

Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; and all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords, and honest men...all will play the Game of Thrones.

Few shows have been more eagerly awaited than the arrival of HBO's adaptation of George R.R. Martin's masterful and massive epic "Game of Thrones" (the first in a series). As the books have progressed, however, faithful followers have cried foul as promises have yet to be delivered. But no matter where you stand in that controversy, there is little debate to the majesty and quality of the novel "Thrones"--an almost instant classic in the adult fantasy genre. Multi-layered and ambitious, this sprawling tale charts a powerful story of intrigue, political machinations, and violence amidst the brutal landscape of a nation divided. It is not a production you could approach half-heartedly. To do justice to the novel's intricacies required a massive cast, extensive period sets and costumes, lavish effects and a focused and intelligent screenplay. Well, creators David Benioff (a top notch novelist himself--check out City of Thieves) and D.B. Weiss were up to the challenge and the astute HBO has once again backed a winner. Make no mistake, this is no cheesy kid's story--this is dark and relentless entertainment for people who enjoy quality programming.

At the heart of "Game of Thrones" is the Stark family. Living in relative isolation, patriarch Sean Bean is called to assist the King when a vacancy opens up due to suspect causes. Suspicions have fallen on the King's wife (Lena Headley) and her twin brother (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), and there may be further nefarious acts in store for His Royal Highness. When the Stark's young son witnesses something he should not have, a violent act that will have long range repercussions occurs. This, however, is just the jumping off point for a tale with numerous dimensions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant transition from book to TV series May 23, 2011
Format:DVD
There's no need to rehash the plot of GRR Martin's fabulous "A Song of Ice and Fire" series; everyone remotely interested in this extraordinary piece of fantasy/adventure is familiar with its medieval story-line.

Things I liked in this HBO series...

1.) it's not often a movie-series turns out to be the perfect visual compliment to what many consider to be the gold standard for epic fantasy writing...but this does. It captures the atmosphere, the subtle edginess, those brutal, unexpected moments; it really does grasp the mood and essence of the book.

2.) in addition to presenting a riveting tale, the production gives us acting that brings the books' characters to life in realistic settings.

3.) a computer enhanced animated map is shown as a short cut scene at the start of each episode. Giving those of us familiar with the books a brief refresher and those new to the series a sense of the geography, direction and distances.

4.) a pulsating, musical score to start each episode that perfectly fits the heraldic spirit of this story.

Conclusion:
HBO has done a wonderful job making this first book (Game of Thrones), into a first rate TV series. 5 Stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A throne in turmoil June 20, 2011
Format:DVD
The mass media tends to ignore fantasy stories, especially high fantasy stories. So it came as a pleasant surprise to me that George R.R. Martin's fantasy epic A Song Of Ice And Fire was being adapted for television -- and HBO crafts it with all the dignity it deserves, with plenty of grime, blood and a tangle of convoluted storylines.

The castle of Winterfell is thrown on its ear when King Robert (Mark Addy) of Westeros arrives to ask Eddard "Ned" Stark (Sean Bean) to be his Hand. But soon after Ned agrees, he receives a message from his mentor's widow, informing him that Queen Cersei's (Lena Headey) family, the Lannisters, are secretly plotting against the king -- and that they are killing off anyone who might be a threat to them.

One of Ned's younger sons is gravely wounded when he sees something shocking, and the acid-tongued dwarf Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) is framed for the crime. Ned's bastard son Jon (Kit Harington) joins the Watch near the Wall -- but has little idea of the horrors that are approaching with the White Walkers.

And across the Narrow Sea, exiled princess Daenerys Targaryen is wed to the barbarian lord Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa), so that her brother can invade Westeros and take back the throne. But Daenerys quickly grows in strength and wisdom, and the Small Council of Westeros has reason to fear her when it's found that she's pregnant -- but her greatest power is that of the dragon's daughter.

As Ned takes to his new duties, he begins investigating the death of his predecessor, and begins to uncover a shocking secret about the queen and her children. Treachery, death and war will be brought to Westeros, and a war will begin with the blood of the good-hearted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Your disc organization is bad and you should feel bad December 4, 2013
By Rayn
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Please keep in mind I'm rating the product and not the series as a whole. The series is wonderful, the blu-ray on the other hand, is a poorly designed train wreck.

There are 5 discs for 10 episodes. The first disc contains 2 episodes and special features. The second disc contains 3 episodes and special features. The third disc contains one episode and special features. The fourth disc contains 3 episodes and special features. The fifth disc contains one episode and special features. To make things even more fun you can select episodes that aren't even on the disc you're currently on for no reason other than to get an "insert disc #" screen.

When I buy a series like this it's usually to marathon (and usually while I'm doing other things like working). HBO should have made better use of their disc space and compressed the episodes onto a few discs and the special features onto the remaining discs.

So, I personally enjoy the series but the organization of the blu-ray leaves much to be desired.

do you guys know the release date?
Like most TV shows it will likely be released the month before the second season airs, in this case February or March 2012; it's pretty much standard fare for most TV series. While of course I hope HBO choose to release it in time for the holiday season (though like I said, it's quite unlikely),... Read more

Amazon should turn off ratings for products that haven't been released
While I agree, what percent of people actually watch features though? I'd bet 90% are reviewing the show and nothing else.

The Packaging is English-language but All the Menus in Spanish
You need to change the language setting on your player. Look in your settings menu for something like "Default Language" or "Preferred Default Language."
