‘Game of Thrones: Season One’

by Giovanni Fazio

Language: English

Someone coined the term “crack-TV” when “24″ was hot to describe those pulse-racing series that always kept you chasing your next hit. I’d say “The Walking Dead” and “Breaking Bad” are two of the best current examples, but right behind them is HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the medieval/fantasy power-politics series that has even made believers out of people who haven’t seen “The Hobbit” 16 times. Now in its third season on HBO, season one arrives in full on Blu-ray and DVD here in Japan. Plan on some sleep-deprived nights.
