I am sure this has been discussed extensively on here but I can't seem to find the answer I am looking for. Why is season 1 on BluRay so hard to find and seems to be OOP?

There is a version of Season 1 that is OoP which might be what you are looking at. HBO pussed out and yanked it because there was a short scene with a head that had a George W. Bush mask on it. The Blu Ray and DVD had been out for months and the mask was unrecognizable as Bush but it was a slow news day for some right winger who finally heard about it being mentioned on the commentary and it turned in to a firestorm. The whole situation was ridiculous and the scene has been removed completely from all versions of the show.

Wow. that is extremely absurd and way overkill. They had to remove the entire scene? Was it important? I dont even remember which that would be. is it when Joff is showing Sansa the heads?

Is this the version you're referring to: http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B003Y5HWMW/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&condition=used

$24.99 w/free super saver shipping right now (like new; fulfillment through Amazon)

It's the discontinued version. They re-released it and altered the scene with the George W. Bush head, as was discussed above, and now it's a combo pack with a DVD & digital copy. The original version wasn't.

I don't think they removed the entire scene. They just digitally altered the George Bush head.

You're right, removed was too strong a word. I should have used altered.

Here's the before and after. I doubt anyone would even notice that was Bush without prior notification though.



edit: and it looks like you edited yours while I was searching for the picture.

Woah! thank you very much! I dont think that change is a big deal at all and I wouldnt mind getting the new version, but i think it's definitely cool to have the unaltered version. plus its at a great price. Thanks!

Thanks everyone for the information. Very interesting (and odd) (and funny) stuff
