Bored to Death: The Complete Second Season

 (TV) (2010)

Bored to Death: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray delivers stunning video and decent audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Jonathan Ames, a young Brooklyn writer, is feeling lost. He's just gone through a painful break-up, thanks in part to his drinking, can't write his second novel, and carouses too much with his magazine editor. Rather than face reality, Jonathan turns instead to his fantasies — moonlighting as a private detective — because he wants to be a hero and a man of action.

For more about Bored to Death: The Complete Second Season and the Bored to Death: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray release, see Bored to Death: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson, Zach Galifianakis, John Hodgman, Oliver Platt, Mary Kay Place

Bored to Death: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Blu-ray edition of Bored to Death: The Complete Second Season boasts a 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation that surpasses its predecessor. Gone are the minor artifacts that sometimes flickered into view. There's still a bit of ringing and some over-saturated skintones, but none of it calls HBO's commitment to quality into question. Vanja Cernjul's palette is overflowing with rich colors, striking primaries and shadowcast blacks, contrast is consistent and filmic, and detail is all too satisfying. Everything from Ray's tangled beard to the pinstripes on George's designer suits to the buttons and straps on Jonathan's two-sizes-too-big private-dick overcoat have been rendered with care, and fine textures, closeups and brightly lit interior and exterior elements have been meticulously resolved. The series' photography doesn't quite split hairs -- darker scenes put a damper on the otherwise exacting image -- but delineation and edge definition rarely falter. Even when they do, videophiles will rightfully chalk it up to intention, not an encoding mishap. Significant macroblocking, banding, aliasing, smearing and other seedy characters are nowhere to be found, and faint, altogether negligible bursts of digital noise (brief and infrequent as they may be) are about the only things that hold back the presentation. Fans will be thrilled; even those who comb HBO's encode for every last sign of wrongdoing.


Bored to Death: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The only disappointment to be had? Bored to Death's unmistakably front-heavy DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Yes, the show's sound design is the perpetrator, and yes, series regulars won't bat an eye. But all the crystal clear dialogue and mischievous music can't take the sting out of such a flat-footed experience. Crowd noise is distant and detached, ambience is weak and unreliable, and the soundfield isn't immersive in the slightest. Directionality follows suit, of course, and dynamics aren't far behind. Even pans, smooth as they sometimes are, tend to hop from speaker to speaker instead of gliding across the stage. Ah well. The rear speakers may tip toe around the obvious, but voices are bright and intelligible throughout, effects are crisp and clean, and LFE output, while relatively restrained, throws enough punches and takes enough swings to keep things lively. In fact, if Ames' New York were more enveloping, I suspect the series' audio would be as arresting as its video presentation. Sadly, that isn't the case. Adequate at best, passable at worst, there just isn't enough razzle dazzle to distract audiophiles from the track's shortcomings.
