I'm a huge fan of the Game of Thrones series, as well as the books that correspond with the show to the degree of using the books as a bible to the show's content. Needless to say when I noticed the first season on dvd I had to purchase it, it was not a want..but a requirement.
The show comes in a 5 disc set, each disc has 2 40+minute episodes on the dvd and the 5th disc has bonus features. There's the emblem of each house represented thus far in the series on each disc. The discs themselves are very attractive as well as the start menu of each episode.
There is a gripe with the casing of the show, however. While the Dvds are in a foldout case the printing of the characters on each side of the case is rather grainy. While I understand this is stylized I personally find it unattractive and the sleeve the actual case is in is also thin and cheap in quality, but for such a low price this is a great collection of the first season.
The series is wonderfully entertaining and engaging. The DVD set that we bought had some issues, unfortunately. The DVD kept freezing up, and we would have to stop the DVD and start it again or back it up and forward it to get past the parts that were freezing up. Other DVDs work just fine in our DVD player so I don't think it was the equipment. It is possible that our issues were just a fluke and any other DVD set would perform just fine.
i love it. it it great looking long and great story. but HBO sucks at making dvds this season and two of my true bloods the glue they use to hold down the cases that hold the dvds come off because of crappy glue damn u HBO damn U
Great show! It's like "Lord of the Rings" meets "The Tudors." It's not quite as sci-fi as LOTR, but it has a sense of the unexplainable mixed up in the politics surrounding the throne.
the first episode...X-rated not for kids. Lots going on...killing, language...of course the boobs and sex
I ordered the DVD after reading book 1 and 2.
I really like the series since it follow the book quite closely. I don't have HBO, so I will buy season 2 dvd once I read book 3.
This awesome series is well done in the first season. I'm reading the 5-book set and the HBO series very closely follows the books.
I must say this isnt my favorite series, but it's definitely worth watching if you have the time to fit it into your schedule. They do a superb job with the attention to detail and really take you to this whole other world of swords and crowns and war whatnot. I'm not sure if I'm gonna keep watching anytime soon, but I dont regret at least trying the first season... 4 out of 5 for this one!!!
Excellent series presented by HBO.
Easy to follow, one episode leads right in to the next,
Swords and dragons and Knights of old.
A very good show indeed, there are some dull moments t over all i would definitely recommend this product and this tv series.
