Boardwalk Empire: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The premium cable network that launched a dozen irreplaceable dramas continues to sit at the head of the BD-TV table with a lovely, lifelike, embarrassingly proficient 1080p/AVC-encoded Boardwalk Empire presentation. Decadent when decadence is called for, submersed in endless shadow when something more sinister is required, every episode stands apart in one way or another. Martin Scorsese, Terence Winter, Jonathan Freeman and Kramer Morgenthau's Prohibition palette is overflowing with sumptuous period colors, evocative sepia tones and cloudy hues, lavish Atlantic City reds and golds, earthy browns and Depression era grays, and rich blacks. Moreover, contrast is unflinching, as is delineation, which, without exception, reveals and cloaks as much or as little as the showrunners intended. Detail is wonderfully preserved as well. While a certain, unmistakably cinematic softness and smokiness prevails, closeups showcase every stitch and tear, every inch of rust and grime, every bit of stubble and spill of hair, every twitchy trigger finger and nervous tremble, every wrinkle and weary brow line, every scar and scratch... everything the already impressive production design has to offer those willing to step away from the story and go exploring. Textures are filmic but refined, edges are nicely defined and clean shaven, and there isn't any significant artifacting, banding, aliasing, noise reduction or any other distraction to note. Above all, it's clear the showrunners had complete confidence in their production, from beginning to end, and it shows in every shot and scene. HBO has done it again, and there's no better evidence than Boardwalk Empire's first season Blu-ray release.

Boardwalk Empire: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There's a reason the 1920s were dubbed the Roaring Twenties; a reason that didn't escape Scorsese and Winter during the series' development. As impressive as the sets, locations, costumes and production design are, the period soundscape the Boardwalk Empire showrunners have crafted is perhaps even more impressive, if only because such cinematic sound design is still a relative rarity in television. So how well does Scorsese and Winter's meticulous attention to sonic detail translate to the home theater experience? More importantly, how does the series' DTS-HD Master Audio mix fare? Let's just keep it simple and say HBO's 5.1 lossless surround track is as savvy and superb as its video presentation. Dialogue is clear, intelligible, snuggly grounded and perfectly prioritized, without a lost line or buried word to point to. The rear speakers roar and retreat on cue, brandishing convincing ambience, excellent acoustics, head-spinning directional touches and silky pans. The LFE channel pulls its own weight too, and then some. Jarring gunfire, throaty car engines, heavy footfalls, falling bodies, meaty punches... it all boasts remarkable weight, assertive aggression and undeniable presence. And then there's the series' Prohibition era soundtrack which sounds every bit as alluring and absorbing as it should. As furiously as I scribbled notes while listening to the mix, I didn't jot down one gripe or complaint. Boardwalk Empire sounds as amazing as it looks. Prepare yourself.
