      The Best Only Gets BETTER

      After having read the first book several years ago, I was greatly please to hear that HBO would be doing a series based on the books. The acting, writing, cinematography, f/x, & just about everything else, are first rate. I seriously hope that HBO continues with the series all the way through, especially considering that there are supposed to be three more books forthcoming. I don't mind in the least that certain events covered in the previous/following book are occasionally moved around, to the following/previous season, as it helps to put things in a more accurate chronological timeline. I do, however, have one complaint, that being that certain events are changed enough to the point (when compared against the books) that I wonder how they will be resolved. A perfect case-in-point is the much-talked-about "Red Wedding". In the HBO series, King Robb's wife was present, and as such, her character is no longer alive. On the other hand, in the book, she was purposely left behind, so as to not cause undue umbrage to the Fray's, especially 'Lord' Walder Fray. As I start reading book 5, "A Dance With Dragons", knowing that her character is still alive, I wonder what changes the show's writers will make, considering they've already killed her off on the show. I have to admit that, no matter what changes have been made, of the three seasons (so far), season 3 was the best. Season 4 is to be the second half of the third book, yet I also wonder how the following 2-3 seasons will be handled, being that books 4 & 5 cover, for the most part, the same timeline, just with different characters being focuseded on (the last quarter of book 5, from what I understand, brings everything back together, and, one again, moves things forward). Would I recommend the purchase of Season 3 to others? Let me put it this way...on a scale of 1-10, my "should you purchase" recommendation is 12 (not even 11 isn't high enough).

      Amazing Show, Fantastic Blu-ray

      Posted

      First off, this is one of the best shows currently on television. It is so much more than it appears. Interesting plots, complex characters and stories, beautifully rich world, and so much more. This season in particular is arguably the best one yet. Everything gets more intense and the plot truly thickens. Beyond this, this season delivers what is quite possibly one of the most surprising and brutal scenes to ever be put on screen. The Blu-ray set itself is also well worth getting. While the description is not perfectly clear, this set is in fact the full 7 disc combo pack. It comes with 5 Blu-ray discs, the DVD copies, and a digital version. The digital version had multiple viewing options as well. This set also comes loaded with extras, that are actually worth watching. Commentaries, behind the scenes videos, and even videos that provide great insight into the world of the show. All of it goes into depth and is definitely worth checking out. All of the Game of Thrones Blu-ray sets to date have been excellently done and this one does not disappoint either. The box itself is very detailed and looks great. The Targaryen version looks fantastic and I would definitely recommend it. Fire and Blood!

      Terrific Blu-ray of a Terrific Season of Televisio

      As anybody who's caught up with this show will tell you, Season 3 was a high point. The status quo was shaken up in multiple storylines, and it should lead into an even more disruptive 4th season. Just on the merit of the show alone, this set is worth checking out. However, even outside of the quality of the series, this is a great blu-ray set. The picture is pristine, the uncompressed surround sound is top-notch, and they've continued to provide excellent animated "History and Lore" segments to flesh out the background of Westeros and its several houses/religions. Watching the show with the Interactive Guide, jumping into history segments when they're relevant to the story, is the best possible way to experience the story (outside of the books, arguably). If you've viewed prior seasons this way, just know that S3's segments are just as strong and consist of, IMO, even better animation. The only negative is that some of the features are a bit odd. For instance, I don't know how necessary a 15 minute summary of Season 2 is on a Season 3 set. This is far from subtraction by addition, though. This is one of the strongest season sets around, and worth far more than the $30 it cost in the first week of release.

      The Best Show on TV

      Now that Breaking Bad has ended its run, the title of best show on TV (including Netflix shows) goes to Game of Thrones. It's the show that most consistently delivers satisfying episode after satisfying episode. And each season has gotten better. The third season will thrill you and leave you with one giant knot in your stomach. I was continually captivated by the Starks trying to unite, Tywin making a bold move, and Daenerys growing in strength. Yet, there is so much more. This show is one of the few shows that requires second and third viewings to fully appreciate the entire story. This speaks to the richness of George RR Martin's story and the ability of the two showrunners to capture most of its spirit. Definitely, get this series on blu-ray to enjoy to its fullest. I also really like the limited edition sigil covers. I got the Targaryen version because...well, you should watch to find out.

      First of all the price of $29.99 for the entire season 3 game of thrones includes 6 Blu ray Discs plus two, two sided dvds of all 10 episodes plus a digital trasfer for your pc, I pad or mobile is a great deal, The package comes with special coorugated sigil packaging of either house Targareyn. House Lanaster or House Stark,I took house Targareyn because of the dragons and they will kick butt in upcoming series.My prediction,loads of special features,although this season 3 does not stand up to season 1 and 2 in my opinion is still woth having and you will learn more on the series then just watching the discs and get the actors perspectives, Great value for someone like me who will purchase the complete series by the time it ends, I have all the soprano box sets so this is my second hbo series Im collecting

      Highly recommended. If you aren't watching this epic series, you are missing out. It hits all the notes an adult wants out of television: intrigue, hope, loss, revenge, trepidation, a little bit of violence (ok, a lot), some love stories, mysteries, basically everything you could want. A true epic in every sense of the word. Highly recommended. If you aren't watching this epic series, you are missing out.

      Without having HBO, I've watched Game of Thrones on the long delay between BluRay releases. Season 2 continued the great story of Season 1 and I'm looking forward to pounding through these episodes as well. The combo pack makes this well worth the price (especially the new release sale price of right at 30 bucks). with many films/shows going to Ultra Violet as the exclusive digital copy option, I like that this one still allows me to download a copy as a permanent back up instead of just streaming. The Best Buy exclusive covers featuring the different houses are nice graphically, though aren't as heavy weight a material as it seemed through the shrink wrap- not a major complaint... just good to know.

      Pre-ordered the Targaryen Edition of Season 3, and couldn't be happier with it. The outside sleeve has a cool texture to it that I didn't expect. If you look at the picture, it does show a slight pattern on the front. Even though I do have all the seasons On Demand with Xfinity, I still love having the physical copy. Plus, the Digital Copy is a must when traveling. The Digital Copy does include iTunes. Great season. Worth buying them all. Get them when they are first release or for preorder. It's cheaper than waiting. I preordered with Expedited Shipping (Free with Elite Plus) and received it before I got home on release day.
