[box type=”info”] HBOWatch will more than likely review the Season One set when it becomes available this Fall, but we also posted this announcement for another reason. As is often the norm for HBO, it usually launches the previous season onto disc just before the premiere airing of the newest season. Again the arrival of the disc sets is 10.06.15, so, following the theory, Season Two should air starting mid-October. [/box]
