ONE OF THE bigger events on TV this spring will be the second season of HBO's "Game of Thrones," starting April 1. You can see why that is cause for celebration today, when the first season appears in detailed DVD and Blu-ray sets from HBO Home Entertainment.
The first TV season proved largely up to the demands of George R.R. Martin's text over 10 episodes, both in maintaining his tone and the sense of mystery pervading the novel, and in letting the characters be as flawed as Martin wanted. And the DVD and Blu-ray packages ($59.99 and $79.99, respectively) pack in a lot of additional information.
