‘Game of Thrones’ Blu-ray Is Coming…But Earlier Than Winter

ALTSome of us got on the Game of Thrones bandwagon immediately, and just need a refresher course before Season 2 begins. The more desperate lot of us got in the game a bit late, and still aren’t completely caught up. To whichever group you belong, you’re likely to take great solace in the following: Game of Thrones Season 1 Blu-ray and DVD sets will be available on March 6, 2012.

Yeah, it’s not exactly right around the corner. But, if you’re an efficient watcher, it will be out in time to prep before the premiere of the second season, which should air in April of 2012.

The Game of Thrones Blu-ray and DVD sets includes the following special features:

-Making Game of Thrones

-Audio commentaries with cast, crew and creators

-Character Profiles

-Anatomy of an Episode: “A Golden Crown”*

-In-Episode Guide through each episode*

-An in-depth look at the Night’s Watch

-From the Book to the Screen

-Complete Guide to Westeros*

-Creating the Dothraki Language

-Creating the Show Open

*Blu-ray only.

In addition to the special features, the Blu-ray includes Easter Eggs that unlock new, unseen material.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
