And picked up a Golden Globe award this week for his efforts. Well deserved too.

Slightly off topic, but Book 1 of GoT is currently free on Kindle. http://www.amazon.co...27926066&sr=1-9 It's an enhanced version for iDevices but also loads as normal on a regular kindle.

don't get too excited - Exclusive bonus disc: An 18 minute high definition piece regarding ‘creating the visual effects' for the first series. Get a firsthand look at the visual effects used to bring Game of Thrones to HBO, from towering castles and sweeping landscapes, to complex stunts and fight sequences.

OMG .. 18mins.... I'll have to add that to the trillion minutes of extras, commentaries, deleted scenes that i have awaiting on other discs that I own :)


Further : mmmmm wondering if the local distributor (Warner) will find it hard to shift this series - and reduce prices much like what happened to Boardwalk Empire ??

Given no VAT or postage from amazon uk (I preordered it) I think the extra disc is worth the extra $1 it's going to cost me @ today's exchange rates.

I have a bad feeling that, even as popular as the show is, I think the sales will flop like Boardwalk Empire. Most people don't want to spend $50 on a DVD anymore. I'll still be grabbing the BR off Amazon UK, haven't seen this show yet.

It will be at least $80 here as the local retailers and distributers try and gouge us. No wonder we buy O/S

I suspect the problem with Boardwalk Empire is that it has not screened on fta. I bought it on recomendations on this forum and have enjoyed the series.
Game of Thrones is another that I have on preorder and cant wait for that to arrive, looking at the review posted ^^ looks like it will be well worth the wait. :phone:

Currently $34.99 on Amazon.com , a steal at that price.

I predict this series will sell very well for HBO, the show built its audience greatly as the series progressed and it has a broader appeal than the slower paced Boardwalk Empire (which I enjoy greatly as well). Everyone I know that has watched GoT loves it and watched the entire series within a couple of days.

So Amazon UK says their set is region free. The US site says region 1 for DVD but doesn't seem to mention Blu ray region. Anyone know?

$3.50 per hour, a bit better than many new release movies that can cost about $25/hr. Plus with GOT you will need 3 or more viewings to get into all the characters and sub plots. A bargain indeed!

The reviews are raving about PQ and AQ on this set. It will put Foxtel's HD showing to shame. I can't wait to see this in full 1080p and hear it in DTS-MA!!

My order is with Amazon which I placed when their free shipping was active and with the 2 pound discount voucher - so works out about same a Amazon US with shipping. Amazon UK will also ship about 2 days earlier and will probably have faster standard delivery.

Did they recently end the free shipping? (I tested the price of this set only a couple of days ago, when it was free shipping)..

I don't think so .... Just tried and it's definitely not free shipping
