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 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.
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

— MULTIPLE COPIES —
You get three different copies of the series:
1) Blu-ray (physical discs)
2) UltraViolet 1080p HD version (digital copy, HD only available on some devices)
3) iTunes 1080p HD version (digital copy)
The digital code gives you two digital versions (which is rare, and appreciated).
— STEELBOOK and MAGNET —
This steelbook has artwork designed by Elastic, the agency that created the Emmy Award-winning opening credits, and has a magnet on the cover that can be removed and used as a regular magnet, or left on to show off as a collector's piece. Each season represents one of the major houses of the series, and this season one steelbook represents House Stark of Winterfell with its Direwolf sigil on the magnet [see photos]. The steelbook is in a matching decorative plastic outer case that holds the magnet in place so it doesn't scratch the steelbook. Depending on how this was shipped, this plastic may or may not be cracked as I've seen a lot of cracked plastic cases with the steelbook intact.
— THE SHOW —
The show is great—in acting, in storytelling, in visuals, in music, and in writing. I've watched everything at least three times, and there are so many new things you see when re-watching, and with the knowledge of future episodes. The first season is on a lower budget, but they definitely make up for it in story. Many characters are introduced and careful attention must be paid to initially tell them apart, This is a show where you *don't* text people in the middle of watching. This is a show that is sacred, that whenever you watch at home or as it's airing, you want to just be transported away from real life for each hour it's on. This show sets up many long games, so for those that pay attention to throwaway details, you will get immensely rewarded later on.
I have converted many friends who previously used to think this was about, "dungeons and dragons and lord of the rings," (like I did) who are now *all* addicted to the show. If you don't already know, this show isn't about what you think it may be about.
This is currently THE only good show on television, and if you don't like it, you probably don't understand good television (sorry, not sorry). It has been the number one torrented show in every single year since it came out for a reason (which is a blessing and curse for the producers). After watching this, everything else on TV becomes: "why I am watching all these other crappy shows?"
This is one of those series that I will buy the individual season sets, and whatever big box set comes out in the future. GAME OF THRONES! Recommended.
The scenes are beautifully done, the camera work is perfect, the acting is great and the direction/production is right on. HBO has really hit a home run with this one. This series alone is well worth the cost of an HBO subscription and you'll also get Westworld, among others great HBO series.
Actually, it seems that Game of Thrones and Westworld are in competition to see who can shock us with the most nudity, humping and violence.
Disclaimer: I have no involvement with HBO or any of its affiliates and will not benefit financially in any way from this review. I signed up for my HBO subscription through Amazon and I'm paying the standard $14.99 per month, same as anyone else.
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.
