Breaking Bad: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

"Breaking Bad: The Complete First Season" arrives on Blu-ray with a dim and uneven 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. Each episode is dominated by a dark look -- sometimes excessively so; only the brightest outdoors scenes seem immune, but there's no doubt from the first episode onward that "Breaking Bad" isn't the sort of transfer that's going to wow all that many viewers. Colors are even and stable but have no life to them. In support of the show's dark look, blacks often overpower the screen and devour finer shadow details, particularly in the very poorly-lit interiors of a basement; the inside of the RV; or even living rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms. The show's brighter outdoor scenes fare the best, but fine detail -- particularly in the backgrounds of the vast, dry, and rocky New Mexico landscapes -- can appear a bit smudgy and indistinct, but close-up shots of clothing and other intricately-textured objects can reveal surprisingly intricate lines and textures amidst the otherwise inconsistent and drab imagery that dominates most of the show. Interior details are nicely rendered but it's sometimes a strain to see beyond the darkness; woven blankets, various chemistry equipment, and other random imagery can look rather good under just the right conditions. A few edges can appear excessively soft and undefined, but generally, there's a stable, crisp look to the image. Flesh tones are natural, but facial detailing can appear pasty and lacking in a more reliable and lifelike texture. Only a few minor white speckles and slight banding crop up during the show, but noise spikes from a minimal amount to an overwhelming coverage in some scenes. "Breaking Bad" will disappoint Blu-ray fans looking for a sparkling, colorful, and vibrant image, but the transfer itself isn't necessarily all that bad considering the show's excessively dark tone.


Breaking Bad: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

"Breaking Bad: The Complete First Season" cooks up a marvelous DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Heavy, exhilarating, and powerful best describe the show's wild opening segment as an RV lumbers across the New Mexico landscape in the middle of nowhere and crashes off to the side of the road. It's delivered with a thunderous volume, pinpoint sound effects, and plenty of tight bass, but most importantly, it remains a distinct and wholly clear and precise sonic experience from beginning to end. Such is the case with all of the first season's many active sound effects. This track is never shy about delivering a barrage of sonic goodness into the listening area with full back channel support of not only the more aggressive effects but the more subtle atmospherics, too. Background ambience is well-integrated into the mix; the exterior desert locales in particular deliver natural, pleasant, and engulfing environmental effects that are focused across the front but do enjoy a palpable back-channel support structure. Directional effects aren't plentiful but are precisely implemented when needed as sound sometimes maneuvers seamlessly from one speaker to the next. Musical delivery is precise and crisp, and dialogue reproduction never misses a beat. All told, the first season of "Breaking Bad" delivers the goods, the track a master of the entire range, from subtle dialogue to the most intense and action-packed of sound effects.
