The first review for the Game of Thrones: The Complete Third Season Blu-ray set is out, and we’ve got some very interesting tidbits about the bonus material.
Blu-ray.com has released another of its amazing and thorough reviews, which indicates that HBO's season three Game of Thrones Blu-ray set is -- once again, and not surprisingly -- chock-full of ridiculously awesome content, among which are wonderful commentaries and deleted scenes.
Here’s a little taste of what we’ll find once we all get our greedy little hands on this newest Game of Thrones set (and that means, hopefully, no more of those dastardly I-want-to-throw-my-remote-through-the-window-hard-as-the-seven-bloody-hells-to-find hidden dragon eggs):
Deleted and Extended Scenes (Disc 5, HD, … minutes): Five scenes are available: "Jon Meets Mance," "Edmure, Robb and The Blackfish," "Tywin and Pycelle," "Small Council Discusses Wildling Threat" and "Jon Thinks About Escaping." Each one is well worth watching and could have easily been retained had time allowed. "Tywin and Pycelle" is particularly good ...
To whet your appetite, you can see the Tywin and Pycelle deleted scene below:
And if that wasn’t exciting enough, we're also getting for the third Blu-ray set in a row THIS:
