The special features are quite good--we get seven commentary
tracks (there are ten episodes of the show)and, unlike a
lot of commentary tracks, there's plenty of good information
both on the shooting of the episode, how the episode fits
into the season and the development of characters, etc.
We also get "Episode Guides"--they provide a bit of trivia.
"The Complete Guide to Westeros" gives us detailed information
on the various families, maps, etc featured in the series.
It's a nice interactive feature. ***
The "Character Profiles" features the actors playing
the roles discussing their characters. *** "Anatomy of An
Episode" gives us considerable insight from the beginning
until the conclusion of production on the episode "A Golden
Crown" one of the pivotal shows from the ten episode first
"Making 'Game of Thrones'" clocks in at around 30 minutes
and is a good "behind-the-scenes" glimpse into the production
of the series. As I recall much of this is repurposed from
material available from the promo pieces and stuff at the
"The Night's Watch" gives us background on these characters
and their mission to protect the realm that is drawn from
the novels. ***
"Creating The Title Sequence" and "Creating The Dothaki
Language" are interesting featurettes on the creation of
the wonderful evocative opening sequence of the show as
well as the langauge for the fierce Dothaki that will, later,
be so important to the series. ***
We also get quite a few Easter Eggs included as part
of this set.
