I already have the first release of this on blu-ray. I'll buy the second season, but not a retread of the first.

It's pretty, but I prefer my original edition to one that has been digitally altered hastily.

There's a decapitated head that looks like George W. Bush so they either altered it or painted it out. The joke is that it's not like it was a secret because they point it out on an audio commentary and the set has been available for months. It became a problem a few weeks ago when some website (clearly desperate for content) wrote about a story about it and that was when HBO suddenly found it unacceptable and had to correct it.
