HBO always puts out some extremely extensive, well thought out sets for its original series, however, there is a caveat: a steep price tag. With Blu-ray copies of seasons running close to $80 dollars and DVD copies running right at $60, HBO sets are among some of the steepest and it may not always be easy to justify the list price. However, HBO’s high fantasy drama, Game of Thrones is built for fandom and goes well above and beyond when it comes to Blu-ray and DVD sets. With The Complete Second Season out today, here are the top 5 reasons why it’s a good idea to go ahead and indulge in a purchase, at least this once.
1. A Slew of Extras
Blu-ray copies of Game of Thrones: The Complete Second Season come with DVD and digital copies, as well. The packaging is fitting and comes with an episode guide and a map of George R. R. Martin’s world, as well as the ten episodes spread across five discs. If you are wondering why any company would need to spread ten episodes across five discs, the answer is that it is all about the bonus features.
Unlike DVD copies, the Blu-ray features in-episode guides that allow audiences to really dig into history and geography while episodes are playing. Along with this, there are extremely short character profiles with interviews from the main cast members that explain their interpretation of George R. R. Martin’s characters. Disc 5 actually holds the bulk of the extras, including segments on histories and religion, as well as the “War of the Five Kings” extra. For those obsessed with The Battle of Blackwater Bay, an entire segment is devoted to the creation of that episode. Some of these extras are difficult to navigate, but if you are super into the creation of Martin’s world, you’ll find them worthy of a perusal.
