To many 1star reviews for stupid reasons,
This review is from: Game of Thrones - Season 3 (Includes Bonus Disc 'Creating The World With Visual Effects' - Exclusive to Amazon.co.uk) [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Skip the first two paragraphs if all want is why a shun the 1star reviewers. This is one of the best shows ever made, this isn't even an over reaction. The first season was so good it got me to pick up the books allowing me to see first hand just how loyal they are on the book. Each season is split to show one paperback book (I say paperback because book three is actually split into two parts in that format) per season.
Each episode is wonderfully written, not a difficult task being loyal to a brilliant book. The actors are well cast and they bring their characters to life perfectly, the sets and the costumes are so well made that its difficult to recognise that this world is actually a fantasy world a feat not many, if any, fantasy shows achieve.
But these are all things you have heard before why else would you be looking to buy the show on DVD. I really want to talk about the 1star reviews firstly the ones who complain about the date, the special features have not all been made, the first example is the round table discussion with the cast, George RR Martin, and the shows directors and writers this discussion does not happen until before filming of the next series in September October, also there are a number of animations, roughly 20 each on the first two seasons, which tells the history and lore of Westeros these also need to be made.
The people complaining about price, for what you are buying it is worth it, I have never bought a tv show in disc format as I find that they are just what I see on tv but dumped on a disc (also explains why they are usually released day after final episode) these however are rich in special features. From the usual behind the scenes to in depth looks at characters explained my actors who play them, from round table discussions to animations telling the histories and mythologies of Westeros. This is brilliant moneys worth DVD for a fans and non fans. I know people who haven't read the books and only knew what they saw on TV, after they spent the money on the DVDs they knew just as much as somebody who has read the books.
This is well worth the wait and the money, for a special featured filled DVD set that will surely expand your experience in the rich and dark world that is Westeros.
Apologies for bad grammar.

Completely agree with your comments re the stupid 1* reviews. Reviews are not the place to moan about release dates and price. Besides the 'moans' are completely unjustified in both respects.

Absolutely agree, bringing the average down for stupid reasons. Amazon should remove them.

Well said. The price this was at originally was a placeholder and people were still giving it negative reviews. The box set's are always worth the money.

You'd think it would stop now it's out, but no. One star reviews because the box is poor, or because it doesnt work on xbox. Sigh.
