So far (judging from the first four episodes), it's living up to our highest expectations. --Matt Roush, Tv Guide
Those who make the investment are richly rewarded. There's enough tension, betrayal, treachery, greed and sex, after all, to fill eight seasons of 'Scandal'. --Chuck Barney, San Jose Mercury News

Game of Thrones is a Game of Win or Die
Based on the bestselling book series, A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, this HBO fantasy drama is a tale of duplicity and treachery, nobility and honor, conquest and triumph. From the scheming south and the savage eastern lands, to the frozen north and ancient wall that protects the realm from the mysterious darkness beyond, the powerful families of the Seven Kingdoms are locked in a battle for the Iron Throne.
- This was the first TV series in history to be screened in IMAX theatres.
- No single character appears in every Game of Thrones episode.
- The sword that appears in the center of the Iron Throne is Gandalf’s sword (Glamdring) from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies.
- In Season One, Northern Inuit dogs, a type specifically bred to have a wolf-like appearance, are used for the dire wolves.
- The character Joffrey Baratheon is based on the Roman Emperor Caligula.
A Riveting Saga
- The complete first season of Game of Thrones includes 10 episodes
- Attractive boxed set includes five DVDs, a guide to Westeros and bonus features
- More than nine hours of first-rate entertainment featuring a massive cast, lavish sets and special effects
- A must-have for Throne fans
- Also available as a five-disc Blu-ray set

Beautiful, cunning and ambitious, Cersei is married to King Robert Baratheon, which makes her the queen of the Seven Kingdoms.

Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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.
HBO has done a wonderful job making this first book (Game of Thrones), into a first rate TV series. 5 Stars.
WOW oh WOW.... This series just blew me away! The storyline was amazing! All the machinations, assignations, intrigue, deliberations, or stunning confessions that go on are incredible. The sets and locations are gorgeous. The theme music is very stirring and the opening credits are creatively done. I can see why each episode runs a cool $6 mil.... I'm afraid I'll run out of superlatives in describing this show. There were many times in watching the series where I was shocked and stunned, like "wow.... Oh my gosh, did that really just happen?".... You think you may know what's going to happen next, and the show surprises you. It plays out like an elaborate and intricate game of chess. I love shows that do that.
You may not recogize many of the names, but you'll recognize a lot of the faces. Mark Addy (Roland from A Knight's Tale, Bill Miller in Still Standing) is wonderful as Robert, king of the seven kingdoms. Rightfully on the throne? Some aren't so sure about that. Eddard (Ned) Stark (excellently played by Sean Bean, Boromir from Lord of the Rings) is Lord of Winterfell and Robert's friend. Ned is asked to come to Kings Landing and accept the job of Hand of the King, due to the recent demise of the previous title holder. Some whisper assassination. If that is indeed the case, Ned wants to know why he was killed.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

|What does the MultiFormat version mean?||
It usually means there's a Blu-ray disc & a DVD included. So yes, it would work in Blu-ray players. They are sold for less as a way of getting people to switch from DVD to Blu-ray in an effort to phase out DVDs altogether. Hope that helped. :)
