Buy this. Everything is great about it, as long as you like this sort of Braveheart-ish, Lord-of-the-Rings-ish stuff. Great acting, casting, plot, special effects, etc. I honestly can't think of anything bad....I guess the collectible Dragon Egg that comes in this set doesn't make this particular set worth more than the others. But the box is cool (seems almost canvas-like), along with the fact you're getting quite a few other extras for less money than even the DVD set. Come to think of it, I'm not exactly sure why anyone would buy any other set for season one. It has the most content and is the cheapest. Win-win.
