24: Season 8

 (TV) (2010)

24: Season 8 Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

The clock is ticking and the suspense mounts during this season-long depiction of "the longest day" in Jack Bauer's (Kiefer Sutherland) life. Each episode is an hour in a very busy day for CTU agent Bauer in this revolutionary series that keeps audiences white-knuckled throughout. In Season 8, Jack is brought in by CTU to uncover a Russian plot to assassinate Islamic leader Omar Hassan during peace negotiations with U.S. President Taylor. Russia's contingency plan involves engineering a dirty bomb, which Islamic extremists threaten to detonate unless Hassan is handed over. Jack then seeks retribution for personal losses suffered after Charles Logan convinces Taylor to cover up these crimes in order to protect the peace agreement.

24: Season 8 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

As one of the bigger budgeted shows on television, 24 has always had rich, cinematic visuals. That's definitely still the case here, although the limitations of setting the final season in New York but filming it entirely in L.A. are occasionally all too visible. The episodes set during daytime, for instance, feature extremely blown-out highlights—intentionally—which seems, to me, like a tactic to make the green-screened backgrounds less noticeable. It works—usually—but the resulting image is often much too harsh, with desaturated colors and piercing whites. Indoor scenes fare far better; colors are dense, skin tones balanced, and contrast much more natural. As the season moves into the darker p.m. hours, black levels can be somewhat problematic—sometimes grayish, sometimes crushing shadow detail, sometimes both—and compression noise has a tendency to compete for prominence with the picture's natural grain structure. You'll also spot some noticeable banding in fine color gradients, as well as a few instances of aliasing—especially on the fine parallel lines of New York's buildings. Clarity, however, is fairly strong throughout, as the transfer has no trouble communicating intricate facial features and other prominent textures.


24: Season 8 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The show's frequently intense sound design is perhaps even more cinematic than its visual aesthetic, and the eighth season's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 presentation has no trouble communicating all the explosive action of Jack Bauer's final mission. More so than most TV programs, the rear speakers are used to tremendous effect, whether for the cross-channel pop, ping, and zing of gunfire—which there's a lot of during certain episodes—or the beating rotors of helicopters, the rush of vehicles, and the long swoosh of a rocket attack. Even in quiet moments, ambience often fills the soundfield with CTU chatter and keyboard clicking, the hum of New York traffic, and other place-establishing atmospherics. Rounding out the sound is the show's propulsive score, which surges dynamically along with the action. Coasting clearly through the center channel is the dialogue, which never gets muffled or lost in the shuffle. Overall, a great mix—not just for a TV show, but for any medium.
