Game of Thrones: The Complete Series and Season Eight Come to Blu-ray 12/3

Earlier today, HBO announced the home release of "Game of Thrones: The Complete Series," as well as the individual release of "Game of Thrones: The Complete Eighth Season," both of which will be available starting December 3rd. Season Eight certainly had a bumpy ride with fans and critics alike, with many calling it "rushed," and others believing that it just didn't make much sense. However, the shortened season of just six episodes was actually rather stunning, bringing the epic show to an incredible conclusion and sending the show out on a marvelous high note. This season also contained what is arguably the best episode of the entire series, "The Long Night," which features the show's bigg
