‘Game of Thrones’ DVD-Blu-Ray Release

March 7, 2012 at 11:03 am | Posted in Blu-ray, DVD, Entertainment | Leave a comment

Today’s the day Game of Thrones is released on DVD and Blu-ray.  Retailing around $60 for DVD and $80 for Blu-ray is it worth it?  Well, the plot and the acting are both good, and HBO has thrown in the obligatory extras which include (among other things) audio commentaries and character profiles.  In addition, the Blu-ray has a bit more than the DVD, like dragon eggs.

There’s a caution that this isn’t for the little folk, but if you’ve read the books, that’s kind of a no-brainer.

George Lucas
Premiere: Wednesday, March 7 at 10PM e/p
From Luke Skywalker’s light sabre to Darth Vader’s Death Star, the Star Wars franchise is one of the defining science fiction works of the later 20th century. George Lucas’ prolific imagination has already inspired two generations of scientists and engineers to push the envelope of technology.
