DVDs Set Sales Records

Here I am talking about GAME OF THRONES in the Hugos, and I realize that I have forgotten to mention that season two has just been released on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Well, yes, it has. It went on sale Tuesday. There was even a Monday midnight madness event in NYC, at the Best Buy at Union Square (which I almost dropped in on, as I was on my way from Boston to DC at the time, but Certain People would not let me off the Acela). They had a direwolf ice sculpture and everything.

And the sets are selling sales records too, I am told. Says so here:


HBO has done its usual bang-up job on these. Besides the episodes themselves, there's all kinds of extra goodies: audio commentaries, histories, interviews, round tables, deleted scenes, dragon's eggs. Also, several of the big retailers are offering special sets with exclusive content. The Best Buy sets have heraldic packaging and content no one else has, the Target boxes have stuff exclusive to Target, I think maybe there's some exclusive Amazon stuff too, not sure. (Yes, I can hear the obsessive completists groaning. I feel your pain, guys).

So if you haven't gotten your Blu-Rays yet, go ye forth and haul ye arse.

Just got the 2nd Season set ...
... and watched it in two nights. (I don't get HBO, so this was the first time.)

And now I've started with the commentaries.

I think I'll probably re-watch this stuff as much as I've done with The Wire and Deadwood. For Deadwood, I'm to the point of watching it in Spanish and French, w/English subtitles. By the way, there are no credits anywhere for those voice actors or the translators. Are there credits for those crews on GoT?

Oh, and seeing these episodes all in one go, I've noticed the real fantasy in this TV series: No matter how mud-spattered or starved, all the women have perfect skin, at least from the neck down, and no hair in any un-TV-approved places. (Not complaining, mind you.)
