Play

Play:

_
"We are not able to play them at all."

"fails to play episodes when selecting disc 3 episodes from disc 1 menu and then inserting disc 3. scratches around center of disc."

"They all play their respective characters perfectly."
_
"Otherwise: shipping was fast (Amazon Prime got it to me 20 minutes before I Ordered it, it seemed like), the dvds look of decent quality and play in my machine, so that's good!"
_
"Product plays great, sent quickly."
_
"Great to have the complete season and play catch-up over the weekend"

Scene

Scene:
"The only negative I can think of are the sex scenes, as they sometimes get in the way of the story (to me) and make it kind of awkward to watch with friends family, but I get why they are there, this show demonstrates the human element, so it brutally let's viewers see the heights of it's greatness and the depths of its wickedness."
_
"The scenes are offensive, lasting in duration, and unacceptable for viewing."
_
"The moment, understandably, upset plenty of fans of the show and books, for which Martin apologized: The scene was always intended to be disturbing, he wrote, but I do regret if it has disturbed people for the wrong reasons."
_
"I am now to season three and it's hard to put down........keeps your interest, scenes are amazing, just love it!"
_
"Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) broke his ankle; many of his running scenes were played by a body double; some were rewritten so he could sit."
_
"Having read the books previously, I was worried that the adaptaion to screen would exclude some details and scenes that I consider important to the overall story."
_
"Great series, if you can accept the violent scenes--good story line"
_
"Character development is good and scene building is outstanding."
_
"I love these series, story line, acting, scenes, all of it."

_
"Fantasy, Violence, Love, Hate, Trust, Betrayal, Humor, and of course sex."

"The gratuitous sex probably isn't needed, it's hard to keep my wife watching! "
_
"Fantastic story, too much graphic sex, violence and language to make me comfortable."
_
"Sex death and chivalry...What more could you love? "
_
"Never thought I would care about or have any interest in a show about Kings, Queens, wars, dragons, and demons, but the character development, multiple storylines, great writing, violence, sex, tension, stunning costumes, sets, and even the artfulness of the opening credits kept me riveted."

"I was turned on to this show by a friend and in turn I've turned about 10 people on to this show and I hope many more after this and other reviews, and trust me this is the one time you want to walk into a show blind because it will be surprise after surprise and the best past of this show is they kill off lead characters and this is what makes this show so great because this is how it happens in the real world and at the end of the day if more shows did this not just when someone wants off the show they would find that YES the viewers will be upset for awhile but in the end it makes it a better show."
