It depends. Some like Hannibal come in slip boxes, some do have slips and some are naked.

Most of their new movie releases come with slips or lenticular slips, so there's a good chance this will too, but apart from Hannibal I can't think of many other TV releases they've put out on BD.

Hopefully that artwork is very temporary as I can't see this been a 12 certificate and uncut, the first episode is quite gory. I'd imagine it's a 15.

the slip-cover and card must have been very very limited to a small fist batch as everywhere only displays and sells (when asked) the bare Amaray.

can only find the dvd with a slipcover.

Nice. What can you say about the Technical presentation and extras for the set and subtitles that are featured ?

I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but will do tonight/tomorrow.
It does have a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack.

Discs are 1080P and include two English tracks. 2.0 LPCM and DTS-HD MA 5.1. Oddly, the LPCM track sounds better. Sound effects on the 5.1 track sound very subdued (it doesn't pack a punch) and on both tracks there is some static at various times. For instance, when people scream... very odd. Only subtitle track is an English HOH track.

Bear in mind, I'm not a hugely OCD person when it comes to video, but I think the Blu-Ray looks quite soft. In dark scenes the picture is too dark and hard to make out details on clothing, etc. The race through the woods (a scene I thought would look impressive) is quite disappointing. This could have looked quite colorful / beautiful but comes across quite dull.

It's not bad, but I think shows like Game of Thrones on Blu-Ray spoil things.

I think the soft look is intentional.
