Battlestar Galactica: Season Two Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Worried about Battlestar's video quality? Rest easy, dear readers. Here's what creator/executive producer Ronald D. Moore had to say about the Blu-ray edition of his beloved series:

"This is a very exciting thing. We shoot Battlestar Galactica in high definition on digital videotape, and have from the very beginning. But typically, in the broadcast format, you're not able to see all the depth and detail, and appreciate the photography that [director of photography] Steve McNutt has provided to the show ever since the beginning of the series. This is a chance to really see what the show actually looks like. When we mix and edit the show, we don't even really watch it in HD. The HD master is something that's sort of finished off in other parts of post production. As a result, I myself don't even get to watch the HD master very often. So it's kind of a treat for me to see the beauty of the images we've actually captured, as well as the amazing sound. So sit back, relax and enjoy this because I think you'll really get a chance to see Battlestar Galactica for the first time in a whole new way, and see the show as it was meant to be seen."

Primed for launch with a faithful-to-a-fault 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, Season Two looks every bit as grainy, grimy and noisy as it should, lending BSG's second hurrah a visceral edge most science fiction series fumble or bypass altogether. McNutt's palette is overrun with blown-out whites, intense blacks and brief bursts of beautiful primary brilliance, and every jarring variance, eye-scorching contrast tweak and oppressive shadow enhances Moore's established aesthetic all the more. Detail is quite striking as well, so long as you're prepared to endure a slew of soft shots and obscured visuals. Fine textures are crisp one moment, muddy the next; skintones range from colorless to lifelike to oversaturated, occasionally in the span of minutes; delineation initially reveals then suddenly obscures the series' production design... and so it goes and so it goes. Again though, it all falls within the blemished bounds of Moore's vision. The only downside? Minor artifacting and banding appear from time to time, and noise tends to surge and relent, making it difficult to discern whether each anomaly traces back to the original source or slight imperfections in the technical presentation. That being said, Galactica isn't (and isn't meant to be) a pristine show by any stretch of the imagination, meaning any such shortcomings are hardly cause for concern.


Battlestar Galactica: Season Two Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Of Battlestar Galactica's four seasons, Season Two and Three are the sonic standouts, narrowly besting the series' already impressive bookends. Unleashing hell at every twist, turn and FTL jump, Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track leaves a lasting mark. LFE output is both hearty and nuanced, disrupting planetside skirmishes with the roar of heavy artillery, pairing chaotic warship battles with the perfectly muffled thoom thoom of in-space canon fire, and ripping through steel hulls and toppling concrete buildings with devastating force. Rear speaker activity is spot on as well, complementing the track's low-end fury with haunting ambient effects and eerily convincing acoustics. The whole of the mix is incredibly immersive, and it's easy to forget the soundscape is the product of a television show. More importantly, dialogue remains intelligible and smartly prioritized. Lines are never lost (unless they're meant to be), effects only overwhelm conversations when called upon to do so, and everything from Starbuck's war cries to Adama's hair-raising speeches are crystal clear. And Bear McCreary's score? Be it the sobering lament of a violin or the rousing rum tum tum of timpani marching to war, the series soars with McCreary's triumphant strings, stirring wind instruments and sternum-thumping percussion. Suffice to say, Season Two boasts a lossless powerhouse; one that makes Battlestar Galactica's soundfield every bit as sophisticated and refined as the episodes it accompanies.
