Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you are well aware of the pop culture phenomena that is Game of Thrones, based on the colossal novels by George R.R. Martin the series has found a home at HBO, and legions of fans worldwide have taken this bloody, sexy, political fantasy world into their lives. This is due, in no small part, to the amazing adaptation of the novels, the theatrical level production values, and a cast that has been recognized and awarded for their performances from year to year.
If you’re a fan, today is a good day – there is a new Blu-Ray release of Seasons 1 and 2, with the rest of the seasons to follow. Slimmer than the original releases, the new releases will feature a sigil magnet on the front of each case, depicting one of the families, and their home. The release also incorporates all the previously released Blu-ray extras, so if you’ve held off buying the series, this is a gorgeous looking version to have waited for…
And it gets better.
The sound has been remastered in Dolby Atmos, this is the first television series release to be released as such, and it sounds AMAZING!!! You will be in Westeros!!
If you already have the series, then you’re not missing out on anything, except the really cool case, and the wicked sound, but if you’ve waited… don’t wait anymore, this is the one you want. And don’t worry, the soundtrack is backwards compatible – so even if you don’t have the Dolby Atmos sound system yet… it’ll still play… and it’s a gorgeous looking steelbook.
Season 1 and 2 are available now with Seasons 3 and 4 on the horizon!!!! And they make great gifts!!! Or collectibles! (Some of us are completionists after all).
