No spoilers ahead!
We’ve been watching A Game of Thrones Season 3. I’ve read the series “A Game of Thrones” books, so I do known what happens this season. I won’t spoil it for anyone, so don’t worry. I will say that it’s very well done, and a number of very surprising things have already happened and we’re only part way through.
I’ve been very impressed with the packaging. It contains the Blu-Ray discs, regular DVDs, AND a coupon for iTunes downloads. So, we’re completely covered, no matter where we want to watch it in the house.
I’m actually seriously considering subscribing to HBO for a few months to see Season 4 while it plays live. That promises to be a very wild ride.
Lost: The Complete Fifth Season is now out, complete with extras, including: Lost on location, A Day with Josh Holloway, Los Angeles crew tribute with Michael Emerson, the 100th episode, Time Frame and Continuity, Bloopers, Deleted Scenes.
WBSHOP.com has got a program for you to trade in those HD DVDs for Blu-Ray discs.
Thanks to Andy The TropicHunt.com Guy for letting me know about this!

Oh great. Just when it looked like the format wars have come to an end….
Turns out that Blu-ray players might not be “future compatible”. What does that mean? Well, in October of this year, a “new” profile of player will be available, and disc players in that support the Profile 1.0, won’t be able to take advantage of the Profile 2.0 features.
So here’s how it’s going to work: current players are Profile 1.0, and can play future hi-def discs but no bonus stuff. Profile 1.1 dics will include additional bonus material that won’t play on 1.0 players—these discs will have a “Bonus View” sticker. Come October, Profile 2 capability will come to the market, which includes Internet activity, but only on Profile 2.0 players—these discs will have a “BD Live” sticker.
Great, huh? Geesh.
