There is really no excuse not to acquire Game of Thrones on blu-ray. If you, for some unexplicable reason, missed the series when it was broadcast on television, now is the time to reedem yourself. And if you've already seen it, you still need to see it again as it's a must in any decent collection.
Why? Well, even apart from the content itself, this release is packed with goodies. Each episode has a variety of ways to watch it in; you can of course play the episode in its entirety, but also with an episode guide, a choice which, among other things means that you can get information about what characters are involved in a scene, a little biography about them and other utilities. It also contains seven audio commentaries ...
Very few TV series is on this level of quality. Although we have only just seen the first season of 10 episodes, but I do not think any television series ever was produced at this level. To date, recordings have cost 312 million, making the season one of Game of Thrones the most expensive so far.
Continuing on this path, there is nothing to stop Game of Thrones to become best-ever TV series. A substantial budget is one thing, but few adaptations are so faithful to their sources as Game of Thrones has been so far. George RR Martin's books are loved by millions, and the TV series makes them justice.
Watching the series again on Blu-ray has been a delight.The series is strong enough to withstand multiple turns in the blu-ray player and the fact is that there is much that you easily miss the first time, especially small clues to later events.
The series ten episodes are divided over five discs, which directly implies that this is something special, and it is... The picture quality is superb, the detail is unsurpassed and blacks are among the best I've seen. The color palette remains a bit on the gray side, but skin tones are still perfect. This is the crème de la crème when we're talking TV series on Blu-ray.
The soundtrack is also of very high class, but it's not perfect The dialogue is, while often excellent, sometimes difficult to perceive - but this is one very few occasions. Otherwise, very impressive and the base really makes the sofa shake!
We talk sometimes of reference quality and in terms of picture quality, Game of Thrones reaches this level by a wide margin, and as the sound is almost there, the series is excellent to display if you want to demonstrate how good blu-ray can look.
The bonus material is very rich and provides us with excellent value for money. Among others, there's a "making of" documentary, "A complete guide to Westeros," some interviews with the creators (and writers) and we learn how the language 'dothraki' was invented... And much, much more, hours of bonus material lies on the discs, all in high-def.
Game of Thrones is a great TV production that sets a new standard for the fantasy genre and lifts the same to a level never before seen. The same goes for the blu-ray release, which puts Game of Thrones at the front of the stage, even if it is not flawless. This is a no-brainer. It's a must buy.
