Blu-ray and DVD


It’s time for another weekly DVD/Blu-Ray Roundup!  Here are the new releases for the week and my opinion on whether you should Skip It! Rent It! or Buy It!

The biggest release this week is definitely Game Of Thrones: The Complete First Season. The show is one of the best shows on HBO and has a big fan base. It’s so big it’s been referenced on other TV shows like 30 Rock and The Simpsons.

And please don’t hesitate to share what DVDs and Blu-Rays you’ve bought recently, or plan to buy this week, in the comments.  Let everyone know what you think should be bought or skipped!
