Deadwood: The Complete Series
The Black Hills of South Dakota. Witness the birth of an American frontier town - and the ruthless power struggle between its just and unjust pioneers

Reviews :

Loved this series. I hated when it came to an end. This is not for everyone, definitely not for children. This series is raw, with profane language, nudity, sex, and violence. The acting is superb. This is fiction mixed with historical fact. Great endeavor by everyone involved in the making of this series.

The acting is outstanding and based on historical fact. A show that you can certainly watch more than once. I still think of the fight scene was one of the best I have ever seen and worth watching the entire series just to see that.
I had not liked Deadwood when I first tried it, just the first episode. One of those wasn't in the right place at the time things. But, I decided to revisit it after a while and found a wonderful and unique series with some of the best acting and writing on TV. The "Cowboy Shakespeare" inclinations of the writers, that was in plain view from the first season, really took off and became a main element of the show in the second season. 

Entire internal monologues and thoughts would blossom forth in lengthy obscenity laced rants and tirades, all delivered with brilliant pseudo Shakespearian eloquence and poetry. Amazing stuff for those viewers willing to get in the zone for it. The Special Edition set features a wide range of commentaries, special features, documentaries and photos. If you love the show this is a must have set for understanding the background, creation and production of this unique series. There's talk of a Deadwood movie to re-unite the cast and put a proper end to the story. Hope they bring it off. 

Superbly entertaining series with some basis of fact. Brilliant characters both good and bad, Seth Bulluck, Al Swearangen, Wild Bill, calamity Jane, brief appearance by Wyatt Earp, lots of foul language yet still articulate.

Game of Thrones: The Complete Seasons
From the scheming south and the savage eastern lands, to the frozen north and ancient Wall that protects the realm from the mysterious darkness beyond. The powerful families of the Seven Kingdoms are locked in a battle for the Iron Throne. Game of Thrones, spans across the fictional continent of Westeros.

Game of Thrones Characters:
Game of Thrones is a thrilling journey through a riveting and unforgettable landscape. This is a story of duplicity and treachery, nobility and honor, conquest and triumph. In the Game of Thrones, you either win or you die.

Game of Thones is one of my favorite shows of all-time. The story is brutal and tragic, yet engrossing and compelling. The characters are wonderfully written, and everything from character motivations to the dialogue and action sequences are superb. The show also has top notch production values, as the environment, props, and wardrobes look magnificent. GOT is a beauty.

The packaging is awesome, as it has been on all of the season blu rays. The discs are in flip book, which go into a sleeve, which has a paper sleeve over top of it all. This season has black and brown artwork, which looks lovely. Very happy with the packaging. The insert also has a complete character guide, breaking down the different families/houses, and a full map of Westeros.

Extras include a complete guide to Westeros, making of featurette, in episode guides, histories and lore, audio commentaries, deleted scenes, and a plethora of behind the scenes featurettes.

The episodes look amazing on blu ray. The 1080p really shines on this series, and everything look breathtakingly beautiful. The characters, scenery, wardrobes, etc all look excellent. The 5.1 audio is great too. The score is brilliant and the metal swords and armor clanging sound great. Sound and Video are easy 10/10.

Overall this is an excellent 1st season in this great series. I enjoyed every episode, and always recommend this show to anyone I talk to about movies/tv. Game of Thrones gets my highest recommendation, and the blu ray sets are glorious. This is the best show on television, in my humble opinion.
The casting is excellent and the plotline riveting from the first episode, even when I can't keep all the Houses straight! (That's when the capability to rescreen comes in handy - and it helps to keep a novel with the appendix of Houses at your elbow.)

The Sopranos: The Complete Series
HBO's hit series 'The Sopranos' takes a realistic, darkly humorous look at members of a suburban New Jersey family, whose patriarch Tony Soprano happens to be a mob boss. James Gandolfini stars.

I realize I’m pretty late getting to the party weighing in on “The Sopranos”. However, having recently gotten around to watching the entire series I’ll throw in my two-cents. There’s not really any room for debate that this show completely earns all of the many accolades and awards it’s received.

Casting is incredibly perfect; every single player brings an authentic feeling to their role and you really buy into these folks as real people. The late James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano is a force of nature who is completely invested in his character. At first glance he just looks like some fat guy but after one episode you quickly understand why he’s the boss who is feared and respected. Hard to believe he’s no longer with us. The two women in his life; wife Carmela played by Edie Falco and Dr. Jennifer Melfi played by Lorraine Bracco make an interesting contrast. The concept of a tough mob boss who’s got anxiety issues and needs psychotherapy is brilliant.

Writing is flawless, the dialog has the unmistakable stamp of reality to it that it’s almost as if you’re watching a documentary. Sets and locations are superb. Things get a little too homicidal the last half of Season 5 and through both parts of Season 6 and cast members start dropping like flies. The controversial ending is indeed a disappointment and it’s clear why so many fans were unsatisfied. Just recently internet gossip suggested show creator David Chase is actually considering a prequel for the “Sopranos”; could be an instant classic.
I recently decided to watch the whole Sopranos series from start to finish. I loved every minute of it! It's been a while since I've watched it so I felt like I was watching it again for the first time. James Gandolfini is an incredible actor. This time around watching it was bittersweet knowing that he passed away. He's the glue that holds this whole show together. All the other actors in this show are superb! In a nutshell, this is a show about the rise and fall of a sociopath: Tony Soprano. Yes that's right a sociopath. This show is not for kids or the weak hearted. It is not politically correct. I've been a fan of gangster movies since Public Enemy with James Cagney to Goodfellas. So, this show was right up my alley. If you are a fan of this genre this show is for you. Thanks Amazon for streaming the whole series. The picture quality was excellent! It looked better then the DVD version.
