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

  5.0 of 5

HBO is out for blood. There's no other explanation. Alright, maybe there's more than one (a commitment to the consumer, high production standards, or excellent quality control, just to name a few). Whatever the case, HBO remains one of the most consistent studios when it comes to outstanding high definition AV presentations, and Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Second Season is no exception. Bolstered by an arresting 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer, the series continues to go above and beyond in every conceivable way. (Besides, how often can you type a sentence like that and not have to apologize for being hyperbolic?) Colors range from dusty to warm to rich (but are always quite lovely), skintones are lifelike and carefully saturated, black levels are earthy and foreboding, and contrast, barring a handful of tricky shots, is dialed in without issue. Detail is perhaps more striking, if only because nearly every inch of the production -- every floor board, vintage sign, stitch of clothing and nick of the razor captured in the series' original photography -- is preserved and presented without fail. Textures are refined and natural. Edges are clean and confidently defined (minus a scant few halos). Delineation is revealing without sacrificing the integrity of the shadows. And there isn't a hint of significant artifacting, banding, aliasing, or crush that might gum up the works. There's a bit of spiked noise but it's inherent to the source; there's a bit of softness too, but it's strictly of the filmic variety and nothing to be concerned with. Like its first season, Boardwalk Empire's second Blu-ray release is a beaut.


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

  5.0 of 5

No complaints here either. HBO has made a habit of offering up top-quality lossless tracks as well, so much so that the studio's audio mixes are often even more impressive than their top-quality video presentations. And, as most everyone should already expect by now, Boardwalk Empire's second season DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track (and sound design for that matter) is as immersive as its first season counterpart and just as absorbing as the image (and cinematography) it accompanies. Dialogue is clear, nicely weighted and perfectly prioritized, without a line lost or a voice quashed, even when the roaring '20s literally roar. LFE output is bold and breathtaking, infusing low-end heft with discerning know-how. A gunshot isn't a canned effect, it's a statement; a thunderous declaration of intent meant to disquiet and discomfort. It isn't treated lightly and carries with it the burden of contributing as much to the narrative as the dialogue it cuts off. The rear speakers are dead serious too. Winter and his team's production design is impressive; the depth, fullness, ambience and believability of the sets and locations featured even more so. Directionality boasts pinpoint precision, cross-channel pans are terrificly transparent, and each episode is as immersive as I imagine it could be. The crowds, the galas, the back-alley meetings, and all the establishments of Nucky's empire, above and underground, sound exactly as they should, and then some. There isn't a criticism to be leveled other than the oh-so-enveloping experience comes to an end after just twelve episodes. Boardwalk Empire sounds as good as it looks and looks as good as it sounds. It's a good day to be a reviewer.
