This is the final season of HBO's Game Of Thrones. Love it, hate it, or you're indifferent about it, if you bought the previous seven seasons, you'll probably buy this one. The final 6 episodes of the series are on 3 blu ray discs. The episode "The Long Night" fares a bit better on the blu ray presentation, but it's still darn difficult to figure out exactly what's going on due to the murky dark scenes. Otherwise, the video is pretty sharp and detailed through the other episodes. Audio is encoded in dolby Atmos, but defaults to dolby digital 5.1. Make sure to adjust your audio to benefit from the better track if your system is capable. Only 6 episodes, but 4 exceed an hour in length. If all you want is to see the episodes, buy at a discount if you're able. Takes the price per episode down to a reasonable level. But there is a wealth of supplemental material included, so if you enjoy the extras, it does make the final season on blu ray worth the pickup.
What a beautiful picture and wonderful sound. If you saw season 8 on cable or streaming, you probably remember how dark, muddy and ugly episode 3, "The Long Night" was. Well, not anymore. On UHD 4k and in HDR, this episode looks positively beautiful. No more color banding or washed out colors and muddy blacks. One of the best looking discs I've ever seen. Definitly qualifies as reference material. If you are a fan and have a 4k disc player and TV or projector with HDR you must have this set to really see these episodes as they were meant to be seen. And the sound is amazing too. The Atmos track makes use of all channels, including your overhead channels.
My pictures are from my 110" home theatre setup with an Epson 5040 4k projector and white screen. The pictures don't do it justice.
What a ride this has been. I started this series about a month ago, and just finished up with this. The best viewing experience I have ever seen. I will never forget it. Loved every minute of it, and having this gorgeous SteelBook is icing on the cake.
This is the conclusion to a long 8-year HBO series of which I was hooked immediately from Season 1, Episode 1. The technical parts in sound and visual experience(s) were every bit up to my expectations (as were in the previous 7 seasons) as we have set up for 4K and Dolby surround sounds for home theater - that is a vital criteria for the purchase and ownership of a rather expensive set of discs. The story line is deliberately out in this review as we all individually extract what we want from the story. I am personally OK with the ending.
Love the series just hated the rushed last season!
Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
What can I say about GOT other than a television show like this only comes around once in a lifetime and I'm just glad that I was here enjoy the ride! Now that being said however doesn't negate the fact that they completely messed the entire series up with that meniacal stupid ending. They built the entire series up to this big gigantic climactic end only to let the entire fan base down with this disappointing ending. Can you say reshoot!
I will miss this show terribly!!! Six episodes is not enough to wrap this Series Up!!! I’m angry about that. It felt rushed and it shouldn’t have been. After 7 seasons the fans deserved more than this. This story should have continued to its proper ending. I would only recommend this with a warning not to plan on having closure.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
DOLBY ATMOS AND 4K! Highly Recommend
Owned for 11 months when reviewed.
Say what you will about season 8, and believe me, I can say A LOT, but it was shot beautifully and for a TV show to feature Dolby Atmos is unheard of. And it's so worth it for this type of show. The 4K looks incredibly good, especially in dark scenes (like the battle on Winterfell)
A:AnswerThe season 8 product dimensions are standard DVD size. This product does not open up or unfold, like my seasons 5, 6, and 7 did with pictures of different characters and extra insert booklets. It is just a sleeve, the plastic DVD case pulls out, and the DVD's are inside as usual. Actually, I prefer the smaller size; after all, the episodes are all we buy these for, not the unfolding larger package.
