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.

GOT is Harry Potter for adults. The casting is excellent and the plotline riveting from the first episode, even when I can't keep all the Houses straight! (That's when the capability to rescreen comes in handy - and it helps to keep a novel with the appendix of Houses at your elbow.)
The first season is true to the first novel. Departures from corresponding novels in later seasons are acceptable. I'm already sad that we're headed for the last season and am curious how the novel will fare when the show has jumped ahead of it.
It's addicting and worth a month of HBO subscription to binge the entire series. If you stream it from Amazon, make sure you have the internet speed. We suffered for years with Century Link's throttled 1.5mbs max and GOT was grainy and had "wobbly" audio. Still worth it, though, and now it's fine quality at 8mbs under our microwave broadcast service.
This review will only be for my opinion of the season overall, and the packaging, extras, and video/audio quality.
Let me start by saying that Game of Thones is one of my favorite shows of all-time. The story is brutal and tragic, yet engrossing and compelling. The characters are wonderfully written, and everything from character motivations to the dialogue and action sequences are superb. The show also has top notch production values, as the environment, props, and wardrobes look magnificent. GOT is a beauty.
The packaging is awesome, as it has been on all of the season blu rays. The discs are in flip book, which go into a sleeve, which has a paper sleeve over top of it all. This season has black and brown artwork, which looks lovely. Very happy with the packaging. The insert also has a complete character guide, breaking down the different families/houses, and a full map of Westeros. Very cool!
All 10 episodes this season are included on 5 blu rays. Extras include a complete guide to Westeros, making of featurette, in episode guides, histories and lore, audio commentaries, deleted scenes, and a plethora of behind the scenes featurettes.
The episodes look amazing on blu ray. The 1080p really shines on this series, and everything look breathtakingly beautiful. The characters, scenery, wardrobes, etc all look excellent. The 5.1 audio is great too. The score is brilliant and the metal swords and armor clanging sound great. Sound and Video are easy 10/10.
Overall this is an excellent 1st season in this great series. I enjoyed every episode, and always recommend this show to anyone I talk to about movies/tv. What else can I say? Game of Thrones gets my highest recommendation, and the blu ray sets are glorious. This is the best show on television, in my humble opinion.
