TV on DVD: 'Game of Thrones' repackagings of Seasons 1 and 2


Series Fans of HBO's graphic fantasy smash won't see Season 5 hit disc until March 15. In the meantime come these double-dip repackagings of Season 1 and Season 2, whose sturdy SteelBook containers (holding stacked discs) boast cover art evoking the show's Emmy-winning title sequence. These sets also add the sonic wonder of Dolby Atmos "moving" audio (with compatible equipment). Season 3 and 4 SteelBooks due shortly.

Extras Retained are the many bonus features of previous releases. Each set includes an elaborately sculptured two-inch magnet -- Season 1's Winterfell gets the House Stark direwolf, Season 2's King's Landing covers the Lannisters.

List price (per season) $60 DVD/$80 Blu-ray+digital, out Tuesday from HBO.
