Girls: Season 1 - 12/11/12

From blu-ray.com:

HBO Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray Girls: The Complete First Season, starring Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Adam Driver, Jemima Kirke, and Zosia Mamet. The release will be available for purchase on December 11th.

From writer/director/actor Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture) and comedy veteran Judd Apatow (producer, Bridesmaids) this scripted half-hour series focuses on a group of 20-something women in New York and their adventures in post-collegiate floundering. Over the course of Season 1's ten episodes, the four girls try to figure out what they want from life, from boys, from themselves and each other. The answers aren't always clear or easy, but the search is profoundly relatable and infinitely amusing.

Special Features:
Inside the Episodes
A Conversation with the Girls
A Conversation with Judd Apatow and Lena Dunham
Five Audio Commentaries with Judd Apatow, Lena Dunham and more
Deleted & Extended Scenes
Cast Auditions
Gag Reel, Parts 1 & 2
Extended Audio Commentary on Episode 6
The Making of Girls
Table Reads
Fresh Air Interview
Booklet containing on-site twitter entries and images from Lena Dunham
Digital Copy through participating partners including iTunes

I really enjoyed the show, but I'll wait to see how they price it. It's not exactly a show that screams "blu-ray".

I'd bite for $25. I'm anxious to check out the bonus features.

Newsroom is the one I'm hoping will get a Blu-ray release. I liked Girls a lot too, I'm just not sure it's that rewatchable. I may pick it up if it ever drops to around $25.

Also nice to see HBO is releasing some stuff BEFORE Christmas this year...although I'm assuming we'll have to wait until 2013 for Season 2 of Game of Thrones.

I think they're following the "1 month before the next season starts" model.

Same for me. I enjoyed the show but will wait for the right price.

I enjoyed the 1st season alot, but I agree with Shannon, not sure about the replay value.

I would be interested in picking this up for $25 or less as mentioned, but I would watch it mainly for the commentary tracks.

If a Mod could delete the duplicate thread I created, I would appreciate it.

Re: Girls: Season 1 - 12/11/12

With the relatively cheap pricing Best Buy and Amazon have done with HBO shows on release week recently, I'm hoping for a good deal on this one before I pick it up...

I saw a couple episodes of this and didn't think it seemed too bad. I might check out the first season on HBO Go before buying it though. If it's around $25 or so I'll likely just pick it up.

Amazon has this for $44.99 right now.

I wonder how much that would realistically drop during the opening week it's released?

I've watched my recordings many times so this is probably going to go on my Christmas list.

Just picked up the BD today from Target for $22.99. As I mentioned earlier in this thread, $25 or less was the price point I was willing to go with.

There is a bonus disc with 80 minutes of content.

30 minutes of it is the Pilot with commentary from all 4 girls (Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, Jemima Kirke)

The other 50 minutes is a 50 Minute Girls revealed Q&A with Dunham and the Producers.


I just checked Disc 1 and the Pilot has only has commentary from Dunham and Executive Producer Jenni Konner.


So, if you're a fan of the show, I would 100% pick up the Target version, mainly to get the cast commetary and the extra featurette on the bonus disc.

Re: Girls: Season 1 - 12/11/12

I blew through the first five episodes quickly after I picked this up. It's funny that people question the replay value, as I HBO GO'd episodes many times after completing the initial viewing of season one. Now I have the blu-ray set and I still can't get enough. Bring on the second season!

It's the same packaging as the regular release, just with an HD slim case (not glued) on the back containing the bonus disc.

The cool thing is that while the Target Bonus Disc is packaged outside of the main box for the season, but it easily fits in the box when you put all the paper materials in the DVD/Digital Copy fold out.

Same here. Great price for this set w/ bonus disc. And I can see how it'll fit inside all snuggly and shit.
