Alcatraz: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Shot on hi-def video, Alcatraz comes to Blu-ray in a 1080p, AVC-encoded treatment that neatly preserves the carefully delineated palettes distinguishing between the two timelines. There's never any doubt where you are in Alcatraz's fractured narrative. Even if the locations, costumes and haircuts didn't make it clear, the desaturated chill of the 1960s scenes—usually, but not always, initiated by the sound of cell doors and a translucent graphic of bars slamming across the screen—tell you instantly that the Rock is active and functioning. In the present, colors are warm and vibrant, fleshtones are natural, and even the caverns below Alcatraz appear to be alive, thanks to the huge array of lively computer monitors and other technology that bring all the hues of the rainbow into the task force's quarters. (In an episode where a downpour causes the power to flicker on and off, the temporary loss of those colors is even more shocking than the loss of illumination.) In both time periods, detail is excellent, black levels are strong, and artifacting and noise are de minimis.


Alcatraz: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Despite the sci-fi premise, Alcatraz is primarily dominated by talk, but when the DTS-HD MA 5.1 track does get an opportunity, it shines. The attacks by a sniper in episode 2 capture the sonic confusion of a panicking crowd. A mess hall riot in episode 10 catches the melee and the havoc. The thunderous downpour in episode 8 echoes through the rear speakers. A Bullitt-style chase through San Francisco registers with appropriate force and impact. All of the prison scenes in the past and all of the scenes beneath the now-disused prison in the present have a subtle sense of ambiance supplied by the rear speakers. The dialogue, which includes an array of distinctive regional accents (since prisoners on the Rock came from all over the country), is clearly rendered. The score credited to Michael Giacchino, Andrea Datzman and Chris Tilton may occasionally remind you of Fringe, which is appropriate, since both Tilton and Giacchino work on that show as well.
