Product Description

The first season of the hit HBO original TV series, based on the bestselling book A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. An epic drama, Game of Thrones is set in the fantasy continent of Westeros, where ambitious men and women of both honor and ill-repute live in a land where summers and winters can last for years. This adventure-fantasy series is now available in a 7-disc Blu-ray collection with these exclusive features: in-episode guide, historical Game of Thrones context, inside look at the creation of the battle of Blackwater Bay and audio commentaries with the cast and crew that includes Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey and Kit Harington.

Review

The horrors of war, the danger of shifting alliances and the anguish of intra-family rivalries raise the dramatic stakes, matched by the glorious visuals. --Joanne Ostrow, Denver Post

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

From the Manufacturer


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.

Trivia

- 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

Meet the Cast

Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage)

Dwarf Tyrion is the youngest son of the Lannister family. His mother died giving birth to him, and as a result, his father and his sister Cersei have always hated him.

Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke)

A princess living in exile, Daenerys is the last of her family line. She believes she is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne and is on a mission to reclaim it.

Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey)

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

Jon Snow (Kit Harington)

Jon is the illegitimate son of Ned Stark, and although he was raised in his father’s household, he feels and is treated like an outsider.

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.

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.

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.

I stumbled across this little gem here under my Amazon recommendations. I'd never even heard of this series of books or the fact it was an HBO show. I read the synopsis and all the reviews here about the show and I was very intrigued. I like Sean Bean as an actor, and enjoyed Peter Dinklage from Nip/Tuck, and as everyone raved about his performance in this, I thought I'd check out at least one episode.

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.

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. :)

Why discontinued?
I believe it had to do with the outcry over the prosthetic George W. Bush head.
